K. Michelle On Being Open About Plastic Surgery: I Don’t Want Little Girls To Think I Woke Up Like This
K. Michelle is a hot topic on any given day of the week, but the one thing most people are always centered on is the singer’s curvaceous body. In the trailer for her upcoming solo reality show, “My Life,” we see K. go under the knife yet again for liposuction and when we had a chance to chat with the artist during a Huffington Post Live segment yesterday she explained that the choice to undergo the procedure was a personal one and not something she felt pressure to do or wants to pressure others to do.
“My body is a hot topic every single day…” K. Michelle said. “I don’t want little girls to feel like I really woke up like this.”
When HuffPo Live host Marc Lamont Hill asked K. if she was comfortable sharing what plastic surgery she’s gotten done, she didn’t hesitate to answer.
“I got my boobs done. I had fat transferred to my butt. I sucked out my stomach, you know, just normal women things,” she said. “They said ‘are you really going to do this surgery on TV’ and I said ‘yes because it’s my life and I’m not ashamed. I’m not ashamed of wanting to suck the rolls out of my stomach. I didn’t wake up like that.”
Asked again whether she is concerned young girls might think they have to go to the same extreme measures for fame, K. stated:
“You don’t have to do anything to be popular. You need to do what makes you happy. Don’t look at me as the poster-child of ‘I need to change my appearance’…. You’re beautiful however you are.”
