How To Make Love To A Martian is the true story of the relationship between, New York Times best selling author, Karrine Steffans and, multi-platinum hip-hop super star, Lil' Wayne. It explores the idea of an impossible love and the transposition of power that often occurs when the love of your life is so out of reach, no matter how close they may seem. It explores the concept of unconditional love, even to one's detriment, and the loss of life that occurs all in the name of holding on to something and someone so completely unobtainable. How To Make Love To A Martian is grossly interpersonal, introspective and riddled with secrets from a woman who dares to love a Martian, against all odds.
Say What You Want to Say about Karrine Steffans – but one word you can never use to describe her is BORING. Karrine gives you her truths with No Holds Barred. I first became familiar with Karrine when she wrote Confessions of a Video Vixen. That book set the Entertainment World on its toes; even sent a few celebrities running for cover. I have had the opportunity to talk to Ms. Steffans on numerous occasions through Skype/email, and one thing I can say about her is – She gives it to you STRAIGHT – No Chaser! She is who she is and makes No Apologies about it.
After reading her second book, The Vixen Diaries I knew her story with Lil Wayne was far from over. Flash forward to the present, Karrine introduces us to – “How to Make Love to a Martian”. In this book, she chronicles her experiences with love – before and after meeting Lil’ Wayne. She dispels some of the rumors that have been floating around about her relationship with Darius McCrary (Family Matters), Shad (Bow Wow) Moss, Rohan Marley, Lil Wayne, and her recent ex-husband.
This is one of my favorite Karrine Steffans books. I love that Karrine never shies away from showing all sides to her personality – the good, the bad, and the ugly. We all deal with them, but many of us aren’t courageous enough to put it out on display. We live in a world that’s so judgmental that it has people putting on different “masks” just to be a part of it.
After reading this book, I started to think back on my experiences with my “Martian.” We all have experienced a Love that has had our heart in a chokehold – A Love that no one can understand – A Love that’s indescribable – A Love that’s Addicting – A Love that stays in our hearts forever no matter where our life may take us.
Karrine, thank you for continuing to give it to us Raw & Unapologetic.
