Days after starting her prison sentence, Lil Kim released a statemnet to let the world know that she's still the Queen Bee... even behind bars.
"I want all my friends, family and fans to know that I am in good spirits and I will be fine," said the artist also known as Kimberly Jones. "Contrary to the rumors, I am in general population at FDC and I have adjusted to the facility and to my fellow inmates who are all cool people. Each day, I read, sharpen my focus and grow. Of course, I wish I could be out to celebrate the release of my new album this week, but instead, I am looking to take advantage of this time to work on my personal development. Thank you to all for your continued support."
The Brooklyn rapper is in the pen on charges of perjury in her testimony regarding one of the now infamous shootings at Hot 97.
Yesterday there were reports and rumors of how Kim received an unflattering prison haircut.
"I was amazed at just how good Kim looked on my two visits to see her in prison last week," says entertainment lawyer, L. Londell McMillan. "Even in a jumpsuit, Kim still has the style and swagger of a star. Kim respects her inmates and they respect her. She will turn this experience into a positive reality for herself as well as her fans and community. She is evolving into a remarkable person of faith and courage."
Lil' Kim's new album, The Naked Truth hits stores today.
