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.
"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.
