Lil' Kim - "Marc Jacobs Wrote Me Every Week in Prison"
Lil' Kim: Rapper, fashion provocateur, jailbird, and, now, artist. With her work hanging in Marc Jacobs' home, no less. The pint-size star, cutting the rug these days on ABC's "Dancing With the Stars," says that while she was serving 10 months in jail on perjury charges in 2006, Jacobs' letters helped keep her going.
"He's one of my best friends and was actually a huge supporter when I was in prison," she said in an interview with StyleList.com. "He wrote me every week! "I decided to buy a coloring book - I'm a huge Bratz fan - and I painted the Bratz and made them all wear Marc Jacobs, and sent it to him. He blew it up and framed it, and now it's hanging in his house. So Marc Jacobs is the best."
Lil' Kim and Jacobs are long-time pals. In 2005 Jacobs announced he was designing T-shirts featuring huge photographs of Kim to benefit The Door, a New York non-profit that helps at-risk youths with everything from health care to homework. Kim said at the time that The Door had helped her while she was growing up in Brooklyn. [click on the read more link below to read the rest of the interview]
Lil Kim Sustains Injury During ¡®Dancing With The Stars¡¯ Rehearsal
[ballerstatus.net]As she continues to move to the next round as a contestant of "Dancing With The Stars," rapper Lil Kim is apparently performing through an injury she sustained during a rehearsal last week.
According to InTouch Weekly, the 33-year-old injured her rib, and braved through her performance on Tuesday (April 7).
"It was fun but a little nerve wracking," Lil Kim told the mag. "I have a small injury, well it's not small, but I popped my rip out earlier this week and ripped one of the muscles under my rib. I didn't know."
Kim says she didn't even realize she was hurt until she visited the show's masseuse, who relayed the bad news.
"She said, 'honey you have a rib out, and you tore one of your muscles,' " Kim said. "She had to push it back in and it hurt so bad. I was dancing through the pain."
She's since advised to rest and ice the injury, but according to Kim, there's no time, as she has to prepare for next week's routine.
"There is no time to relax," she says. "We have to learn the jive and it's really energetic -- what do I do?"
"I'm excited for the dance, but the injury has me a little nervous," Kim continued.
