This weekend there may may not have been any shaking of tables, but something was definitely shaking. Then again, maybe not. Nothing was shaking as far as K.Michelle is concerned. Hundreds of Tampa fans are livid right now, as K. Michelle refused to perform for fans who paid to see her along with Musiq Soul Child and Lyfe Jennings. Who’s to blame? K. Michelle says the promoters, the promoters say K.Michlle. Catch These T’s.
K.Michelle, damn girl!! As much as The Doll is trying to ride with you, you keep doing things or finding yourself in situations that is bringing you tons of negative press!! ughhhhhh. So apparently, K. Michelle was paid $5,000 to do a show in Tampa. The show line up was supposed to be as follows: K.Michelle, Lyfe Jennings, Musiq Soul Child. uhmmm Sounds ok to me, I guess. Well, Miss Michelle wasn’t feeling it. She put in a request to the promoter to have Lyfe perform first, on the basis that she was the BIGGER name. The promoter refused K.Michelle’s request and she got to walking. It’s jacked up because regardless of the order, the fans that paid to see 3 acts only saw 2.
Lets dig into the BIGGER name thing. We’ve got to first develop some sort of criteria on what we are using to gauge BIGGER. Did K.Michelle let her ego get in the way that night? Was she truly being a Diva or was she justified in her position? Fact of the matter is, no matter what you think of yourself, you are only as big as OTHER people think you are in terms of public notoriety and fame. K. Michelle as I see it is a tad bit more relevant right now coming off the success of Love & Hip Hop Atlanta. However, Lyfe Jennings has put out several albums and people do know who he is. So which one of them is the BIGGER name? Again, How are we defining BIGGER. If i had had to choose sides, I would have to say that I think K.Michelle was wrong. At the end of the day, the paying fans are more important than your ego. I’d be curious to hear what she has to say.
Perhaps I’ll call her. Here’s what Lyfe Jennings had to say:
Promptly after this fiasco, K. Michelle took to twitter and had this to say:
I’ve never missed a show a day in my life. I would never stand my fans up period. I was told no by the promoters, he didn’t like my request.
Who is the BIGGER name K.Michelle or Lyfe Jennings?
