K. Michelle's "Rebellious Soul" Musical Coming to VH1, Idris Elba to Direct

It looks as though Idris Elba's wish to be involved in a musical will come true.

Earlier this month, he told the London Evening Standard that he was interested in further flexing his performance muscle and bridging the gap between his love for music and acting.

Enter K. Michelle.

The R&B songstress recently revealed to Chicago's WGCI "Morning Riot" show that she is teaming with the British actor to develop a musical for VH1 based on her debut album, Rebellious Soul. Elba is reportedly set to direct and we wouldn't be surprised is he found a way to sneak onto the small screen.

She explained:

"My album, Rebellious Soul, we turned it into a musical ... it's on VH1 and Idris Elba is the director. [...] I took every song on Rebellious Soul and turned it into a conversation and flipped it ... kind of like a female 'Trapped in the Closet' [by R. Kelly]. I turned the whole album around, Idris heard it. Loved it. And we decided to team up on it. VH1 will air it. I didn't want to make it this celebrity thing. Me and him decided we really wanted it to be focused on the story and fun and laugh and cry. People have been talking to me about a lot of acting roles, but this will be my first time being on the screen."

There is no word on who will star alongside K. Michelle or when the musical will air.


K's current single Can't Raise a Man is available on iTunes now! THE NEW QUEEN OF R&B! Tamar who? I hope all these reality TV hoes are watching because K. Michelle is doing everything right!
