Description

Part tell-all, part cautionary tale, this emotionally charged memoir from a former video vixen nicknamed 'Superhead' goes beyond the glamour of celebrity to reveal the inner workings of the hip-hop dancer industry—from the physical and emotional abuse that's rampant in the industry, and which marked her own life—to the excessive use of drugs, sex and bling.

Once the sought-after video girl, this sexy siren has helped multi-platinum artists, such as Jay-Z, R. Kelly and LL Cool J, sell millions of albums with her sensual dancing. In a word, Karrine was H-O-T. So hot that she made as much as $2500 a day in videos and was selected by well-known film director F. Gary Gray to co-star in his film, A Man Apart, starring Vin Diesel. But the film and music video sets, swanky Hollywood and New York restaurants and trysts with the celebrities featured in the pages of People and In Touch magazines only touches the surface of Karrine Steffans' life.

Her journey is filled with physical abuse, rape, drug and alcohol abuse, homelessness and single motherhood—all by the age of 26. By sharing her story, Steffans hopes to shed light on an otherwise romanticised industry and help young women avoid the same pitfalls she encountered. If they're already in danger, she hopes to inspire them to find a way to dig themselves out of what she knows first-hand
to be a cycle of hopelessness and despair.

    I read this book when it first came out. I loved it. I couldn't put it down, I was pregnant and my boyfriend then was in jail and I read a lot. This is by far one of the best books that I've read. She told so much from highs to lows and I believe it was all true and I also believe she really opened the Public's eyes to the entertainment industry and the way they get down. It's a must read if your nosey and love to read.

    It pays to read things for yourself. This book was rumored to be some vulgar sex ridden tell all. It was not, it was a book about her life, her story. I wish Karrine much success in all her endeavors.
  • Beautiful and touching! Must read!

    There is nothing in her book that people don't already know about that side of the music industry. Get your refunds!

    I'd been eager to read this for a while and needed a mini escape from my life so I caved. First of all, wow. She holds nothing back and gives great detail about her life and it's sometimes heartbreaking events. Secondly, it definitely took me away in that page turning way I needed. But the pitfalls were the way she breezed through so quickly. I read tons of auto biographies and memoirs and prefer a different style. I just felt like I was sitting still and the story moved by too briskly and didn't bring me inside the emotions. All in all I was satisfied.

    This woman has made her $ by her dirty deeds, but mostly by telling lies about more than 1/2 these men, including KOOL G RAP!!! She used n tainted G Rap's name for her success! G said it from the gate, that she mixed lies with truth! Now she tryna stir up more BS by bloggin bout her "so-called" husband, then goin back n saying it wasn't meant for him.. This is her publicity stunt, as ALWAYS; she's doin all this to sell another demonic book of hers... But let's ask her y she left her baby in the middle of the street while the car was rollin.
