Ali Landry: If you could put together 5 people for a dinner party who would they be?
Monica: I would love to do a dinner party with people who are no longer here, like Aaliyah or Whitney, and I would have to say - Tupac. He was very witty, and then the two of us. That’d be some great conversations to tell them about what the music was like.
Brandy: I would ask Tupac like 90 questions.
Monica: He was so sweet.
Brandy: Yeah, he was smart too.
Monica: He liked the fact that I spoke my mind. So, that would be our dinner party.
