K Michelle on R Kelly: “If I Talk, Everybody Going to Jail”

During an interview with Nick Cannon on Power 106, K Michelle dished about her upcoming album, past struggles, and complicated working relationship with R. Kelly. K Michelle admitted her feelings surrounding the disgraced R&B singer/songwriter’s legal woes are very complex.

K Michelle is no stranger to controversy. The singer once heralded for her academic achievements and involvement at FAMU, has a complicated past that includes a fuzzy professional relationship with R. Kelly. Admitting he is controlling, she says it’s difficult for her to watch him be discarded for his actions. She admits she isn’t defending him but wants the public to “keep the same energy.”

As Nick Cannon led up to inquire about her past experiences with R. Kelly, he empathized with her. He waxed poetic that Black people were “castrating members of the community that brought so much joy to us.”, a sentiment with which she agreed. Continuing that he was indifferent because he had known a different side of R. Kelly, Nick asked K. Michelle what was her outlook on the situation after being so close to the singer. She seemed reluctant to judge.

Stating “I know right is right, and wrong is wrong, but I don’t have a heaven or a hell to put this person in.”, K Michelle thinks the public’s response to Kelly’s actions is inconsistent. Referencing Elvis’ taboo relationship with 14-year-old Priscilla Presley, she alluded to the lack of outrage when one of the biggest stars in history “picked his girlfriend up from school”. As for how she feels about R. Kelly’s fall from grace, K Michelle shared she was in the studio as he was apprehended and broke down.

Watching in dismay with famed producer Jazze Pha, K Michelle said: “I was looking through the booth at the tv and to be standing in the booth and to see that — that was a lot — I just lost it.” Sharing she had a different experience as he controlled only her music, K Michelle says “If I talk, everybody is going to jail.”

Both Nick and K Michelle admit they, along with others, turned their backs on his wrongdoing, but have grown to respect the survivors that are coming forward.

Tiffany Haddish Does the Big Chop on IG Live

Published

on

Actress and comedian Tiffany Haddish just took to Instagram Live to do the big chop for all to see! Recently she’s been teasing us with the idea of her chopping off her faux locs, something many Black women are doing in the midst of this natural hair renaissance.

In the short live session, which you can find below, Haddish reaffirmed her decision to cut her hair, and was even a little confused as to why folks were shocked she was doing this. “What is y’all tripping off of? They acting like this sh*t ain’t gonna grow back,” she said.

As she kept cutting, she reminded viewers that she had been toying with the idea for years and finally decided to do it. The actress snipped away as she told us all, “People be thinking I just be running my mouth. When I say things I means it. Who wanna buy a loc?”

Haddish always has jokes for us, even if they are problematic at times. Following rapper Kanye West’s announcement that he was running for President in 2020, she took to Twitter to announce her own candidacy for the office, in a total spoof of West’s tweet. Her running mate? Why, legendary comedian Dave Chappelle, of course.

Rich Dad, Poor Behavior: 50 Cent and Lil Wayne Joke About ‘Exotic Women’, Daughter Responds.

mm

Published

on

A video of 50 Cent and Lil Wayne has surfaced wherein Curtis talks about wanting an “exotic” woman and seems to express an urge to physically attack women who call him out on his “preference”.

If I’m honest, even the most ardent of wig-snatchers might have simply ignored the video, dismissing it as yet another 50 Cent super villain moment. Half-Dollar is in a near-perpetual hotseat for doing things like making fun of Power cast members and attacking his own son on Instagram. What makes this different is the company he’s keeping and the reaction the video elicited. In the video, you can see Weezy’s few remaining locs jostling as he giggles like a 12-year-old with a nudie magazine. Weezy has a daughter. She felt the need to respond.

Before I go any further, I’d like to commend Reginae Carter for what she’s done here. Black women should never feel the need to “take the high road”, but she does. More admirable is how she centers the uplifting of the women who may have been affected by her father’s actions. That’s an incredibly difficult thing to do when family is involved.

All that said, this is not an isolated incident. As I said, 50 Cent is constantly making remarks like this. Most days, he gets ignored. Weezy’s lyrics have always been misogynoiristic, colorist, and he himself has made it clear that he doesn’t have a desire to learn. There’s a long history of these things being ignored. Our community doesn’t do enough to protect Black women. Oluwatoyin Salue’s tragic demise is proof of that, so it feels especially sinister when we see the real-world affects of these sentiments in real time.

Pusha T Pushes Young Thug’s Buttons with Drake Diss

mm

Published

on

Your favorite rapper and investigative journalist is back at it again. According to Young Thug’s Instagram story, Pusha T, Gunna, and Thug did a track together, only for Young Thug to realize that Pusha T’s verse was a follow-up diss toward Drake. Young Thug claimed that he did not “respect” Pusha T’s verse, nor did he know what it was about, calling the whole ordeal “so gay.” (We’ll push past the casual homophobia, for now.)

I can only assume that nothing of interest was found in Young Thug’s family tree, because Pusha responded with yet another attack against Drake! In the span of four Story pages, he claims that Drake was the reason the verse, as well as another verse he did on Rick Ross’s “Maybach 6”, weren’t approved, that Young Thug was only on the song because Pusha demanded it, and finished it all off with the request that he be taken off of the deluxe version of Pop Smoke’s album.

Drake doesn’t seem to feel like he needs to respond, yet. He usually keeps his cards close to his chest. There’s also the fact that Pusha seems dead-set on calling Drake out with every chance he gets. It wouldn’t surprise anyone if Pusha T had more information in his arsenal that could further tarnish Champagne Papi’s image. It could also be that Drake just doesn’t want to give Pusha the attention he’s desperately ordering.

It’s all very messy-boots, which the gworls over on Twitter seemed more than happy to eat up.
