Part tell-all, part cautionary tale, this emotionally charged memoir from a
former video vixen nicknamed 'Superhead' goes beyond the glamour of celebrity
to reveal the inner workings of the hip-hop dancer industry - from the physical
and emotional abuse that's rampant in the industry, and which marked her own
life - to the excessive use of drugs, sex and bling.
Once the sought-after video girl, this sexy siren has helped multi-platinum
artists, such as Jay-Z, R. Kelly and LL Cool J, sell millions of albums with
her sensual dancing. In a word, Karrine was H-O-T. So hot that she made as much
as $2500 a day in videos and was selected by well-known film director F. Gary
Gray to co-star in his film, A Man Apart, starring Vin Diesel. But the film and
music video sets, swanky Hollywood and New York restaurants and trysts with the
celebrities featured in the pages of People and In Touch magazines only touches
the surface of Karrine Steffans life.
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 to be a cycle of hopelessness and despair.
