Blu Cantrell Feels Pain And Gain Of The Circus

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – R&B singer Blu Cantrell is black and blue from her stint on Celebrity Circus.

Cantrell – best known for her song “Hit ‘Em Up Style (Oops)” – was the first star voted off Celebrity Circus this past Wednesday (Jun. 18), and it hurts!

The show is more physically demanding than she ever imagined, and she experienced torn muscles and plenty of bumps during her eight weeks of circus training.

At one point, she had about 30 bruises on her body at once, that, in her words, “Eventually got hard and went away after repeatedly bumping them.”

But at least the pain turned into gain for Cantrell.

Thanks to the intense TV training, she’s in the best shape of her life.

Cantrell says, “I started with no exercise routine and then went to lifting my own body weight six hours a day for eight weeks. Now I’m going to try to stay in shape by working out two hours a day. If I can do six hours, I can do two!”

Celebrity Circus airs Wednesdays on NBC.
