Exclusive: K. Michelle Reveals Stripper Past in New Musical

Published

on

Just when we thought we knew everything about K. Michelle, the singer is revealing more about her life … like her past as an exotic dancer … in her new musical “K. Michelle: Rebellious Soul: The Musical”

“It’s just the story of a girl who is a dancer and her struggles” explained K. “It’s nothing I’m ashamed of, it’s just part of me.”

HipHollywood sat down with the Love & Hip Hop star about the Idris Elba directed musical and she revealed that she began dancing after a former boyfriend left her and her young son.

“After the guy left me, or whatever, and got married at random at All-Star Weekend, I started dancing and I didn’t want to tell my mother … I was determined I couldn’t go back to Memphis.”

Now after scoring a record deal, dropping her first solo album and garnering the respect she always wanted (and deserved) in the industry, K. Michelle is hoping to inspire other women with her musical set to premiere on Vh1 August 19.

“We didn’t want to make it just a regular “Mama I Want To Sing” play,” explained K about working with Elba. “We wanted to make it really artistic in the way that it was shot, and with him being in film he was able to understand what I was saying and take it and shoot it in a very beautiful way that hasn’t been done.”

But, if you’re hoping to see more of K. on Love & Hip Hop: New York, think again. The singer/songwriter told us she’s got her sights set on more acting. Check it out.

    What a surprise. A rap chick used to be a stripper. I would’ve bought a dance from her if she didn’t have those tacky tattoos.

Music’s most amazing night went down Sunday at the Microsoft Theater in L.A. and we have to say the night was all about the ladies!

That’s right the 45th American Music Awards had some major moments and some major girl power starting with Pink and Kelly Clarkson.

The duo got the show started singing R.E.M.’s “Everybody Hurts”, but it was their solo performances that had fans going nuts.

Kelly Clarkson returned to the stage and had everyone on their feet with a medley of her classic tracks and new single “Love So Soft.”

While Pink took her career to new heights leaping off the side of a building while performing her hit single “Beautiful Trauma.”

Christina Aguilera, paid tribute to Whitney Houston with a commemorative performance for the 25th anniversary of The Bodyguard.

But the #Majah moment of the night had to be Diana Ross. The Motown legend was given the Lifetime Achievement Award, and performed some of her greatest hits before accepting the honor.
