Let me get right into it and pick up this damn mic….
I swear this must be the year of the “Black Chyna” aka the year of the “Petty”, misinformed, and outward negative energy conductors towards stuff that doesn’t involve you prospering beyond your current level of consciousness…. my case in point K. Michelle.
***Please note this is old information, I wrote this post about a good four days ago and because of my current self-prescribed gym time, work & school schedule, facebook stalking regiment coupled with my need to always be down with “CPT” this notation is coming a bit late. But regardless it is something that has been marinating on my soul and I think it’s something that it’s some points that still need to be addressed.***
Now the other day singer, songwriter, and self-proclaimed “fence jumper” K. Michelle made a statement along the lines of that “if a black girl was to come out with a song like “Hello”, it wouldn’t get as much radio play” Now this statement though opinionated and SOMEWHAT true really pissed me the fuck off. Why? Because not only is it partly fictitious and very much reaching, race baiting, and very self-damaging. It’s also borderline ignorant and above all subliminally shady towards the DAIRY QUEEN (and I say that with love) Adele.
What I feel like K. Michelle was really TRYING to convey is that Adele’s song “Hello” really ain’t shit, and if SHE (K.Michelle) would have dropped the same song it would not have gotten any radio play because she is a black woman. And the only reason why “Hello” was such a big hit was because the non-apparent melanin in her skin. But remember we are under the Chinese year of the “Black Chyna” and because of this all things this year will be both partly clouded and lined with subliminal shade, with a strong chance of a downpour of pettiness…..
Now like I said I somewhat agree with what K. Michelle said in regards to if CERTAIN black women’s would have come out with a song along the lines of “Hello” then it wouldn’t get any airtime. But only if that said women was from the same “Ratchet Regional” high school ghetto graduating class of 2016 from to whom the valedictorian is Gilbert Arenas, and the principal is Aretha Franklin.
But all jokes aside….Like is it honestly believable to hear K. Michelle singing a song like “Hello”? and I’m not talking about vocally because momma can sing, but in the context of the her life and the things we know about K. from her time on shows like Love and Hip Hop and various other media outlets, She has painted herself into a corner of being that “around the way girl” who has so much potential of being something great but can’t seem to leave the block.

K.Michelle lacks growth. She was introduced to most of the world nearly six years ago, and other than some hair changes, and a booty reduction, nothing much has changed. Especially where it counts in her persona or her attitude when it comes to walking away from certain toxic situations. My momma always said “Misery loves company”, and I’m starting to really rest on the notion that not matter how much she tries to stay away from the air of misery it’s just something so sweet about that smell that it draws her back in. and just like a moth to a flame, it burns her every time.
Now I don’t know about you, but when it comes to people singing love songs, and belting out ballads the first thing that I need is for them to be able to sing. The second thing I look for is if the person can convey what they are singing within that song. Or else it comes off as the “Bow Wow” effect.
What is the “Bow Wow” effect? The “Bow Wow” effect is where we know too much about a person to even really take you seriously when it comes to the context of what you are singing or saying. It’s like when you know a person is lying to you about their life because the obsequity of it has never been something that has shielded or shied away from. So in the case of a song like “Hello” it wouldn’t be believable for me to hear K.Michelle sing it because I don’t see her in the same light that I see someone like Adele in. Adele can virtually come out with a song about her popping her camel toe in the club while snorting coke and I would have no choice but to believe it because we don’t know much about Adele. She puts out hit records and then disappears, her life is not on camera for us to watch every week so I have no choice but to believe the context of what she is saying in her music. In the case of K.Michelle, it’s the exact opposite. It’s almost like she’s too candid. I know too much about her so when it comes to her singing about calling an ex on the phone I can call bullshit just by doing a light google search of how her last relationship ended.
Does that make sense to you? Let me give you the moral of the situational story. “When you create a house of glass to which everyone can see into, don’t then try and sell me the idea of your house being clean”
I love K.Michelle, I know it might not seem that way from the above but I swear I do. I love her hustle, drive, and ability to keep it real when it comes to situations in her life. I just hate it when people who have platforms use them to try and tear the next person down, and then within the same breath try and play the victim. There will ALWAYS be a lane for women like K.Michelle to perform and peddle their music. There are tons of women out there who like K. LOVE to play the victim in their lives instead of taking responsibility for their actions. If K.Michelle wants more radio play then maybe she should learn to not only cater to the women in her current lane but also look to help the women in the other two as well. Like most highways there are three lanes. Perhaps focus on being in the center lane? Or else I don’t see her career ending up arriving at the destination that I know she’s driving and striving towards.
Rolling Ray Undergoes Surgery After Wig Catches On Fire
Social media star Rolling Ray underwent surgery Tuesday morning to treat serious burns on his body after his terrible wig accident last week.
In a series of IG stories, he let his audience follow along as he prepped for surgery.
Last week Rolling Ray announced he was hospitalized after his wig caught on fire! During a January 13 Instagram Live session hosted straight from his hospital bedside, he showed his severely burnt and damaged face telling viewers his “whole skin, legs, arms, feet, and everything” were burned.
In a more recent Live, Ray explained the incident that led to his whole wig catching on fire: an unfortunate smoking accident. “It just, like, lit on fire when I tried to light the cigarette,” he recounted. “So I get to trying to snatch the wig off. B***h, the fire goes to my f*****g shirt, to my feet, to my legs, to my back. It’s a fire everywhere, it’s a fire in the whole room.”
Of course the internet trolled him in a disgusting display of ableism and heartlessness. Comments like “Rolling Ray should have stopped, dropped, and rolled” and “karma’s a b***h” had social media conflicted in its feelings about his accident. His sensation comes from his harsh and, often, below-the-belt reads (just last month he told Yung Miami to “dig (sic) up” her dead baby father. However, the criticism didn’t stop him from responding on Twitter.
Rolling Ray might be problematic as all get-out, but we do not tolerate ableism here. We wish him well as he heals.
Fantasia Reveals Gender of Baby On the Way!
On Tuesday singer-songwriter and “American Idol” winner Fantasia Barrino took to social media to reveal that she is having a baby girl, her first child with husband Kendall Taylor.
In a series of Instagram stories, Fantasia showed pink fireworks being shot off during a gender reveal party, to her and her hubby’s excitement! She continued by sharing what her daughter-to-be’s name will be: Keziah London Taylor.
The news comes after the couple revealed they had struggled to conceive since their 2015 marriage. During a November episode of her IG Live show “Taylor Talks,” she described continuously praying for a child with her husband. Fantasia, a deeply devout Christian, was obviously elated when she shared the news.
“God I Want To Thank You!” she said in an Instagram caption. “You Gave Us A Seed even when the Doctor said that one of my Tubes [was] Closed you said Different. @salute1st I Love You King and I can’t wait to see who He or She acts Like.”
We can see Fantasia and family are all super excited to be welcoming a baby girl into their lives. All congratulations to her.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West Are Getting Divorced, Report Says
In a story published Tuesday evening, Page Six is reporting that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are getting divorced, with the two already in settlement talks. The news comes after the couple spent the holiday season separately – Kanye at his ranch outside Cody, Wyoming, Kim and the kids with her famous family in southern California.
A source close to Kardashian was quoted saying, “Kim got Kanye to go up there so they could live separate lives and quietly get things sorted out to separate and divorce. She’s done.” Kardashian, 40, and West, 43, are said to be splitting because of marital problems directly related to Kanye’s very public mental health struggles.
For several years the rapper’s various antics have caused fans to worry. After coming out as a Trump supporter, West then announced his own 2020 presidential bid under a new political party: the Birthday Party. At a campaign rally in South Carolina, he was seen rambling, debating individual audience members, and at times, crying. In various interviews, he has rambled on almost incoherently, and his tweetstorms are now infamous.
For her part, Kim has always supported her husband and has openly discussed the difficulties of their marriage. Back in June, she shared on social media, “Anyone who has [bipolar disorder] or has a loved one in their life who does, knows how incredibly complicated and painful it is to understand… People who are unaware or far removed from this experience can be judgmental and not understand that the individual (has) to engage in the process of getting help no matter how hard family and friends try.”
It appears she has finally reached her limit in the union with the unnamed source saying, “She is serious about taking the bar exam and becoming a lawyer, she is serious about her prison reform campaign. Meanwhile Kanye is talking about running for president and saying other crazy s**t, and she’s just had enough of it.”
Separately, a source close to Kanye alleges the rapper is sick of his wife and her family, which might have some truth to it since he has tweeted some pretty nasty things about them in the past. “I been trying to get divorced since Kim met with Meek at the Warldolf [sic] for ‘prison reform,’” he said in a now-deleted July tweet. Recently, he hasn’t been featured on his wife’s Instagram and has largely remained out of the public eye.
With the news yet to be confirmed, the “divorce is imminent” reports are just rumors for now. We’ll be following the news as more information comes out.
