R. Kelly and his protege K. Michelle had a major falling out after he claimed to have slept with her last year, but that hasn’t stopped Michelle from drawing inspiration from her former mentor. The singer revealed that she’s working on a musical inspired by her debut album Rebellious Soul, which she says will rival the crooner’s “Trapped in the Closet” series.
“[R Kelly] might feel some type of way because mine is better than his,” she told HipHollywood.com before performing at the Lexus’ Versus and Flow event Tuesday night.
She revealed that actor Idris Elba has signed on to help direct the project. “He saw the vision,” she says. “I was talking to him about it like ‘Yeah, I’m going to do this musical,’ and he was like, ‘I’m going to do it with you.’ And I was like, ‘Okay, yeah whatever.’ And he was very serious and he completely understood what I was doing with this musical.”
There’s no further details on when Michelle’s musical will premiere.
