R&B singer K. Michelle revealed on the radio show, Ebro In The Morning, in December that she was going to remove her butt implants on January 12 because getting them was a combination of insecurity and trendiness. She said:
“I think it was a trend for me. January 12, I literally have to lay down again to get these foreign objects out of my body. People don’t talk about that…I had a big a–. I already had one. It was insecurity. I was like, ‘I want a big a–, I want some titties, I want some teeth. This is what I wanna do.’ I just did it. It felt good. It was a temporary bandage on some issues with me and it felt good at the moment. Now I just want to be me, who my mama made me.”
And sure enough, on January 12, the 33-year-old removed the implants, which she playfully called “Betsy.” The Jasmine Brand posted a pre-op video of the Memphis native, where, with a smile, she says, “Goodbye, Betsy. Goodbye, Girl.”
According to K., the operation went well, and she made sure to let fans know that on Twitter, as well as to promote her upcoming tour in February:
In an interview with The Sister Circle in December, K. said that she would tell young women who are considering plastic surgery this: “You know what? look at yourself. Just learn to love yourself. If you want to make some adjustments and some changes, think them out. Think through them because you don’t want to be like me, regretting and backtracking trying to get what God had already given me.”
K. has been very vocal about getting back to her “old self.” She has made a clear distinction between who K. is and who Kimberly is. If removing these implants brings her closer to who she wants to be, then I am here for it. Well wishes on her recovery, and good luck to her re-discovering herself.
