Apparently Karrine "Superhead" Steffans isn't so super at everything — like rapping, for instance.
The hip-hop video megastar-turned-best-selling author has dismissed recent rumors suggesting she was picking up the microphone to try her hand at a rap career.
According to a report that broke overseas and was picked up online by U.S. media outlets and bloggers, Steffans was to sign to an imprint headed by Eddie Murphy. An album by Steffans was scheduled to be released in March, the report stated.
Steffans, however, denied the rumors, calling the information false and unwarranted.
"I am not signed to any recording deal or to any other type of deal with Mr. Murphy," the former video vixen explained to MTV News exclusively in a statement released by her publicist.
"I am not, and have no interest in being, a musician of any kind," the statement continued. "I am focused on my third book, upcoming magazine column, radio and reality shows. My performance on the King magazine mixtape [Freaky Flows Seductively Hosted by Karrine Steffans] was lighthearted and cynical. It was not a precursor to any future endeavors. This is just another example of how these sub-journalistic bloggers create and spread false information daily. Luckily, this time it was not a hurtful rumor. I urge the general public and major news media to be skeptical of unwarranted information and take such reports with a grain of salt."
Steffans — who released her second book, "The Vixen Diaries," in late September, exposing sexual encounters with Lil Wayne and Ne-Yo — rhymed as a part of the introduction to the aforementioned mixtape.
King's editorial director, Datwon Thomas, told Mixtape Monday last month that the rap, though recorded in jest, was actually solid, to his surprise.
"It was pretty dope," Thomas said. "It's not even straight rapping — it's kinda like poetry in motion. It's her style of spit. I think it's kind of like if you hang around with Lil Wayne all the time and all these dope rappers all the time, you want to do these things. I don't think she wants to do it for real, for real, but if she wanted to, she can."
