Derek BlanksLa La Anthony has tapped singer K. Michelle for her BET Truth Series documentary, Killer Curves: Bodies To Die For.
The doc, executive-produced and narrated by Anthony, investigates the popular and sometimes fatal trend of body modifications in the black community. These modifications, used to exaggerate curves, are often referred to as black market cosmetic surgery.
To help explain the craze and its adverse affects, La La has tapped a range of voices including K. Michelle, who shares her struggles with body image, and explains why she decided to get the procedure in the first place.
“After I got my butt shots I felt like I had confidence, but then [I had] headaches all the time…I couldn’t even walk,” she explains in the doc.
Killer Curves: Bodies To Die For airs Wednesday, August 8 at 8 p.m ET on BET.
