K. Michelle Reveals She Auditioned For The Role of Mercedes on ‘P-Valley’ and Lost Due To Her Body [Video]

Posted September 14, 2020

K. Michelle has revealed that she was up for one of the lead roles on one of the hottest new shows out, the stripper drama ‘P-Valley‘ on Starz.

During an Instagram Live, the singer revealed that she auditioned for the role of Mercedes, was in the running for months, and was “so close” to getting it. She was neck and neck with actress Brandee Evans who ultimately snagged the role.

K says that although she is extremely proud of Brandee and the entire cast, she was very hurt and even cried over losing the role–which she says she lost because her body was not together the way she would have liked. She attributed it to her recent surgeries, and lack of self confidenve in her body.

Brandee, who plays Mercedes, I auditioned for months for this part as Mercedes and it was between me and her. My body wasn’t together, I had holes in me. Everything. She does an amazing job at what she does. But I haven’t even watched it in the full. I watched it, the first couple of episodes. It hurt so bad. Nothing hurts me so bad than to see y’all comparing me in doing this P—y Valley thing because I was that close. That was my first role that I really was that close to getting. It hurt so bad, man! It does hurt me. It hurt me so bad! Because I was that close. It was between me and her. I was put on hold for the part and it didn’t happen, so I hurt. I hurt.”

Get into it below.

P-Valley just wrapped its first season last Sunday and has already been renewed for season 2, set to air next year.
