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 she made as much as $2,500 a day in videos and was selected by well-known film director F. Gary Gray to co-star with Vin Diesel in his film, A Man Apart. 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 romanticized 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.

    " Funny, surprising, fastest thing I've ever read. If you like gossipy news and rap music, this is great. She doesn't give out all the names, which made me think a lot about who it could be. Basically, it's a tell-all about anyone and rarely about her. "

    " I enjoyed this book. The autobiography of a troubled girl who looks for acceptance in all the wrong ways, coupled with an inside look at the music industry and the eccentric lifestyles of the people in it. "

    " This book was good and was definitely an easy read. It was interesting to learn about this chick's relationships w/ a lot of A list rappers, etc. I got this book done in about 3 days because like I said, it was an easy read and I love gossip books :) "
