I must say, K. Michelle has definitely been doing the damn thang lately. The new poster child for female R&B has been gracing stages, shows, and magazine covers that quite honestly I never thought she would have. Not sure how many people consider The Wendy Williams Show to be a major stage, but no tea no shade, when I saw K. Michelle performing no Wendy, I thought to myself “this girl done f&cked around and made it”. yes Gawd K. Michelle.
The singer who’s album sold 72 thousand copies in its first week sat down to talk with Jaime Foster Brown over at Sister 2 Sister magazine and revealed some pretty interesting truths. One in particular is that K. Michelle feels she learned more as stripper than she did in college. Hmmm OK. Hell, these days the strip clubs and the streets are the higher learning institutions. Anyway, the soulful songstress dishes on the biggest misconceptions about her as a person and her big move to New York. Catch these T’s
Jamie: Is there any kind if misconception about you that you think is out there?
K.Michelle: There’s a lot of them, but I think people are starting to see. You’d think I just pop off, but you don’t see I’ve had a full conversation with this individual. You just see me curse them out. You know it’s gotta be a villain every season. Somebody’s got to bring the ratings. It falls on me; I take it. It is what it is. But I think people need to understand that I’m not always angry. I’m very calm. My manager always says I’m the most giving person out of any artist that he’s ever met. I will do anything for anybody.
Jamie: What’s your show going to be like?
K.Michelle: The real me.
Jamie: I thought we saw the real you.
K.Michelle: No, you see the angry me, but this show is more my move to New York. Like, I’m just getting in my house this week in New York. Now we found the furniture—all of this kind of stuff, and just my growth as an artist and me dating again and just me being a mother and my real friends, not the friends that I’ve been put with.
You’ll have to pick up the September issue of Sister 2 Sister magazine to read the rest of the interview.
I’m definitely looking forward to what the future has in store for K. Michelle. I’ll definitely say one of the up sides to K. Michelle being a part of Love & Hip hop as that we got to experience a small part of her journey along with her. I almost feel like an investor in all that she has become. I K. Michelle continues to allow us to to ride this bus with her…
