B. Scott sat down with the lovely K. Michelle for a one-on-one interview in Los Angeles earlier this month.
During their chat, K. Michelle revealed that despite being proud of her shape, she’s ready to say bye-bye to her curves — specifically, her butt enhancements.
Her decision isn’t rooted in vanity, but rather her desire to be taken seriously when it comes time for business.
“I have like movies and different things [I’m working on], and I was having a real conversation with Tyrese — we’re really like great friends. I was telling him about my butt, how I hate being typecasted because my bottom is so heavy — not saying I don’t love myself, but…you know.
For me, I want my normal shape back.
For me, and my career right now, and me doing business — like really being on the frontline in business — I don’t need to have a man looking down at my ass when I’m trying to talk numbers. I don’t need to not be able to get the role. Like, I wanna be in Jurassic Park! Let me be in Jurassic Park! I don’t need to not be able to run through Jurassic Park because my ass is too heavy. Before the dinosaurs come to eat me, I need to be able to go!
K. Michelle also says that she’s tired of her shape getting in the way of wearing what she wants to wear.
“I can’t wear designer clothes. It’s always a problem when it comes to designers and like when they have to get stuff to fit my body. That’s one thing, I’ve always had a big butt. You can ask anyone in college.”
As far as why she decided to alter her body in the first place, K. tells B. Scott that at the time it was something she just wanted for herself.
“I just wanted it. I wanted that shape. That’s the shape that I wanted. I wanted to look like that. I think the older you get you get tired of having to hop into your jeans!”
When asked what she would tell other girls at this point who might be considering butt or other body enhancements, she says:
“I would say if you have the coins to put it in, have the coins to take it out. That’s really what I would [say]. No, really — because it might be a phase! I would tell [other girls], don’t go and do what you see people doing. But, if that’s what you want to do — if that’s the body you want — go get the body you want! Nothing is wrong with it. But, if you won’t want it anymore — you just don’t want it anymore!
