TV One has established a strong marketing factor for the network with its music series, “Unsung.”

Past episodes have highlighted singers like Teddy Pendergrass, Teena Marie, Phyllis Hyman and plenty of others. The network attempted to cover the story of singer Stephanie Mills recently but was totally rejected.

The singer came forward to talk about why she refused the gig.

“I don’t like that show,” the Grammy Award winner revealed in a recent interview with The Huffington Post. “They have approached me quite a few times, but I [won't] do that show.”

“I’ve always been very private and at 55 I don’t want to open up my life to that,” she continued. “They’ve done Angela Winbush and they even wanted me to say something about her on that show, and I love Angela, we’re sisters. But I had to tell her, ‘I don’t want to do that.’ … I’m not that girl.”

She said her life is her own business and her career is what it was, a career.

“I feel like I’ve had a wonderful career. I’ve done wonderful things and met some many wonderful different people. So I don’t feel like I’m unsung at all.”

    I don’t think unsung is about putting your personal business out or trying to scare people from the music industry i think it’s very informative and inspiring but i guess we have to respect her wishes maybe she’ll do some other show where the fans can get a update on what she’s up to now. I believe everyone thought it would be a good idea because we’re just saying that her voice talent and music should have been known more. I like unsung

    Could it be the sex tapes that Stephanie participated in early on to establish her career that she doesn’t want exposed? I think Unsung does an excellent job portraying the real side of the entertainment business. OBAMA 2012
