A little over one month ago, we told you about an upcoming book release from Karrine “Superhead” Steffans, which she described as an “interpersonal literary project”. The memoir, which is accurately titled, How To Make Love To A Martian, provides an account of the six year relationship shared with Hip Hop heavyweight, Lil Wayne. Sure we already know that Karrine is no stranger to celebrity rendezvous, but what made this story particularly interesting is the fact that during the course of their six year relationship, Karrine has been married, Dwayne has been engaged (several times) and fathered multiple children. A description of the book found on Karrine’s website reads:
“How To Make Love To A Martian is the fifth title from Karrine Steffans and part of a digi-trilogy. It is the true story of the unorthodox relationship between, New York Times best selling author, Karrine Steffans and multi-platinum rap super star Lil’ Wayne. Martian explores the idea of an impossible love and the transposition of power that often occurs when the love of your life is so out of reach, no matter how close they may seem. It explores the concept of unconditional love, even to one’s detriment, and the loss of life that occurs all in the name of holding on to something and someone so completely unobtainable. How To Make Love To A Martian is grossly interpersonal, introspective and riddled with secrets from a woman who dares to love a Martian, against all odds. “
Since the January announcement of her latest composition, Karrine has utilized her website to release a series of home videos in which she reveals juicy tidbits pertaining to her relationship with Wayne, including the fact that she was once pregnant by him. While she doesn’t reveal in the video what became of that pregnancy, I’m sure the tea gets spilled in the actual book. Unlike some of her previously published works, which were available in print and backed by major publishing houses, this memoir is self-published and only available in e-book format at the low price of $2.99.
Do you think this project will be as successful as her previously released books?
