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.

‘Annihilation’s’ Leading Ladies Use Intense Military Training As Bonding Experience

Published

on

Annihilation is one hell of a visually stunning sci-fi film with five female leads on an expedition to uncover the mysterious phenomenon that is expanding across the American coastline.

For Natalie Portman, Tessa Thompson and Gina Rodriguez, the film, which also lends a voice to what is being called the year of the woman, dressing in head to toe military gear and going through tactical training was a bonding experience.

“”t was really fun. It’s weird to say that. But to have all these women in military training together, where we had to do these exercises … it was a great bonding experience with each other.” Portman told us.

And although the women had the opportunity to use real guns, firearms is not something the ladies of Hollywood advocate. “I’m anti gun to be honest,” Rodriguez said. “I say no guns. There’s no reason for people to have guns especially when you have these,” she said while holding up her firsts.

This past week Gina has been very vocal via social media about gun legislation and the idea behind policy and change following the tragic high school massacre an Parkland, Florida.
Annihilation, also starring Oscar Isaac, hits theaters on February 23.
