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.

Review: ‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’ Is Bigger & Better Than The First

Published

If you liked Kingsman:The Secret Service, get ready for The Golden Circle. Hands downs this Kingsman is bigger, badder and better than the first.

Director Matthew Vaughn really takes it up a notch and gives fans much more action and fight sequences. Right off the top we see Eggsy (Taron Egerton) in this amazing car chase scene that will have you applauding as soon as the Prince track ends.

And while we’re talking music the film has an amazing sound track. And if you didnt know, Elton John is also in the film acting and singing some of his classic tunes.

What I also loved were the new editions.  Channing Tatum, Halle Berry, Jeff Bridges and Pedro Pascal who play the Statesmen – the American version of the Kingsman –  and the dynamic between the two is pretty comical. Vaughn really explores the difference between the two cultures – mannered men in suits versus macho men in jeans and cowboy boots.

Then there’s Julianne Moore who plays the villain, she’s like this maniacal Martha Stewart esque drug lord and she’s quite good at it.

Now there are some obnoxious moments (like that sex scene between Egerton and Poppy Delevigne).  But I think that’s the point. This franchise is all about turning the spy genre on it’s head and introducing the younger generation to a new type of Bond flick … And we think they are going to love it.
