Cardi B’s latest single “Up” tells us simply that “if it’s up, then it’s stuck”, but there could very well be some instances where that does not apply. Case in point, K. Michelle’s latest Instagram Live session where amid her dancing to Cardi’s latest hit, her twerk didn’t necessarily have its usual bounce.
K. Michelle just wanted to party and have fun with/for her Instagram followers. The mood was set as was the camera for the “Supahood” singer to titillate her followers. Dressed in an all-black sexy ensemble, Michelle steps away from the camera while “Up” provides the background music. It is when she moved her body to the side to provide viewers a better angle of her twerking that both herself and those that were logged on to the Instagram Live session saw a discrepancy.
In the video, the singer’s backside appears to show a deformity as it is seemingly drooping lower than usual as she twerks. Once K. Michelle seems to notice, she begins to awkwardly position herself away from the camera.
K. Michelle has been vocal on her issues with the implants in the past. The singer shared with People in 2018 that for her injections that she chose the “black market” route, which was proven to not have been the best decision. “He wasn’t a doctor — it was black market,” she said. “It was these ‘hydrogel’ injections — that’s what they were being called. When I found out my favorite rapper did it, that’s when I decided, ‘I’m getting it done.’”
Over the years Michelle has also shared her complications stemming from the implants including fatigue, migraines, and other various pains. The silicone eventually spread throughout her body, damaging tissue in the process.
Michelle finally made the decision to remove the implants, updating her millions of social media during the process. After multiple reconstructive surgeries, she took to Instagram in late November to give an update. “Surgery went well,” the post read. “I got my butt back the healthy way. My last butt was named Betsy, what should I name this one??????” She also captioned the post, “My silicone removal and reconstruction is complete. I can twerk again with the knock knees.”
Last September, K. Michelle announced that she had a new show that was picked up by Lifetime. With the show, the singer hopes that these women will begin the journey to becoming healthy again.
“I’m so excited about this because instead of being on TV acting a fool, this is my opportunity to save some lives and change the narrative for these women,” she said. “It’s something I’ve been praying for, fighting about. Just know that when you feel like you’re counted out, and when you’re down to nothing, God is always up to something.”
She added, “I’m so excited about this opportunity because it’s something different and it’s something that I get to do in order to help the female community and to just help women. This is something that I’ve been wanting to do for years. No matter how long it takes, God will allow it if it’s supposed to be.” The show is set to begin production this month.
