Confessions of a Video Vixen
About this deal
all of the times that she 'falls in love' right after meeting a celebrity, then starts crying because she's so in love and it's so sudden and raw and intense and blah blah blah (OH MY GOD THIS BOOK IS SO TERRIBLE).
Vindicated: Confessions of a Video Vixen, Ten Years Later
The last thing I remembered was my body shaking violently as I sat on the toilet with my head in my hands and my friend Eva hovering over me asking me if I was okay. But now I was on the floor and she was gone. Can I move? was the only thought swirling through my head.The book itself is horribly written - from the poor sentencing and paragraphing it was almost hard to believe the book was published this way, but i understand that the story was too juicy and scandalous to pass up. a b c d Thabie Sibanda (November 25, 2008). "Former 'video vixen' discusses women in hip hop culture". Daily Sundial. I tried to saysomething to make sure I was alive. I couldn't. I tried to move my leg, and it worked. I stood up gingerly and made my way to the sink. I looked around the small, one-stall bathroom. It was dimly lit and tiny, yet elegant. I held on to the sink, looking at myself in the mirror. My pupils were fully dilated, and I could feel my knees wobbling beneath me. I splashed cold water on my face, hoping to snap out of the trouble I was so obviously in.
Karrine Steffans - Wikipedia
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 Well, Michael B. Jordan was 18 Steffans said and his mother didn’t like [that she slept with him]. But of the sex she said: “It was fine… It was alright.”For a decade, Confessions of a Video Vixen author Karrine Steffans and the details of her private life have been the subject of debate and scrutiny. But, as gossipmongers and critics speculated, assumed, and manufactured tall tales about the New York Times bestselling author, Karrine hid herself and her truth from the world, imprisoned by an abusive marriage and the judgments of society. The biggest discrepancy that I found really hard to swallow was relating to her realtionship with Kool G Rap. She states initially that she was 'wed' to him under her alias Yizette Santiago with a fake age, ID, etc, ergo, the marriage was not actually binding (supposedly unbeknownst to Kool G). But later on she goes into detail about how her credit was ruined as a result of Kool G misusing her accounts during their time together. How would he have been able to do that if he didn't even have access to her real name???? This is far and away the worst of them. First of all, Steffans tries to identify herself as a "video vixen" but then reveals in the book that most women in music videos are actually professional models and have little to do with the hip hop social scene.
