Although she admits "dropping the ball" with her rumba, Lil' Kim tells TVGuide.com she and partner Derek Hough will be back on their game for the paso doble on Dancing with the Stars. "Derek and I are so focused this week to get that No. 1 spot, get that 30," she says. In addition to the paso, Kim & Co. will also duke it out in the team dances. See what the rapper — who spent a year in prison after being convicted of perjury — has to say about the groups, her near-wardrobe malfunction and how her former cellblock mates are showing her support.
TVGuide.com: You said you're going to be yourself again after toning it down last week with the rumba. Lil' Kim: I don't think it was about not being myself because I was still myself, but I didn't put that Lil' Kim touch on it that everybody loves, which is moving my hips and being very sexy. I think Derek and I got confused. We were trying to find a happy medium and I think that was probably miscommunicated. In between that, we both just dropped the ball a little. To be honest with you, I feel the same way the judges feel when I watch it back. I wish we had just let loose and just let it go with the hips. If we were deducted on something else, that would've been better than being deducted on the thing that they love so much. But we still got great scores!
