- "The It List" is Yahoo's weekly look at the best in pop culture. Here are our picks for the week of January 24. R&B singer K. Michelle is hosting a new Lifetime series on the perils of plastic surgery gone wrong. Michelle, who herself nearly died after receiving silicone injections, will help other patients who want to reverse their own nightmare procedures. She'll also share her own traumatic story.

K MICHELLE: One morning, I woke up, and my legs just completely gave out on me. I'm having headaches. We don't know why. It came back that my silicone injections were causing the issues.

- A new A&E docuseries is taking a deeper look at the Playboy Empire four years after founder Hugh Hefner's death. The series promises a look at Hefner's lasting influence on society while not shying away from the darker side of Playboy, including Hefner's controlling nature.

- I wouldn't trade places with anyone else in the world.

- His legacy should comprise the whole story.
