Love and Hip Hop New York reality star K. Michelle‘s debut album Rebellious Soul did surprisingly well on the album charts and is now being turned into a musical and you’ll never guess who is directing it.
K. Michelle is planning on taking her Rebellious Soul album to the stage and acting it out in the form of a musical which will be directed by
my future husband Idris Elba. Yes, I know. I said the same thing.
According to Idris, he loved every song off K. Michelle’s Rebellious Soul album and jumped at the chance to help her turn it into a musical.
I want to do a musical. I want to do things that challenge me. I’ve got a keen eye on music and would like to do something that marries my world of acting and music.
K. Michelle dropped the news last week during a radio interview on the Morning Riot Show:
My album, Rebellious Soul, we turned it into a musical … it’s on VH1 and Idris Elba is the director. […] I took every song on Rebellious Soul and turned it into a conversation and flipped it kind of like a female ‘Trapped in the Closet’ [by R. Kelly]. I turned the whole album around, Idris heard it. Loved it. And we decided to team up on it. VH1 will air it. I didn’t want to make it this celebrity thing. Me and him decided we really wanted it to be focused on the story and fun and laugh and cry. People have been talking to me about a lot of acting roles, but this will be my first time being on the screen.
No word on just when the musical will hit the stage, cast, etc., but we will keep you all posted.
