After appearing as a judge in The Pussycat Dolls’ “Girlicious” reality competition, Lil’ Kim will now be switching roles as she has signed on to star as a contestant in the new season of “Dancing With The Stars.”
According to the Los Angeles Times the controversial Brooklyn rapstress will be a part of the new cast of the popular TV series, joining comedian David Alan Grier, “Jackass” alumnus Steve-O, former NFL player Lawrence Taylor and singer Jewel, among others.
“It’s the most diverse cast we’ve had,” Deena Katz, the show’s Senior Talent Producer, told People magazine. “The women are phenomenal and the men are such great characters.”
The show is scheduled to air on March 9 on ABC.
In related news, Kim has been making headlines for comments she made about the Biggie biopic, Notorious. The outspoken rapper has publicly announced her disapproval of her portrayal in the movie. In an interview with Hip-Hop Weekly she even threw shots at Big’s mother, Voletta Wallace, who produced the film, and widow Faith Evans.
“I’ve had enough and I’m about to expose them both … I’ve been quiet for a long time,” she said. “I’m very disappointed in Faith,” she added. “There’s nothing Faith or Ms. Wallace could do to stop me from reppin’ B.I.G. all day. I’m gonna always do that … It’s time for Ms. Wallace to be exposed.” – Elan Mancini
