Chrisette Michele Responds to Trump Backlash with Spoken Word


Last week R&B singer Chrisette Michele went against popular opinion to perform for Donald Trump's inauguration [click here if you missed that].

Chrisette responds to the furious backlash with a little fury of her own...

Girl cash your check and sit down. You're doing WAYYYY too much. Make a decision and stand by it. All this back and forth making excusing and explaining yourself over and over, all that says is you feel guilty because you know you made the wrong decision. If you were content with your decision you wouldn't still be trying to explain yourself. At this point the only one you're trying to convince is yourself.

Why is everyone coming after her? What about Travis Greene? Yall just love to drag women to death.

Mamas gun said...

Exactly! If all
Don't sit the fuck down and leave her alone. She wasn't on stage by herself.

@2:31 and 2:43; MAAAAAN FUCK the both of them and you too. This post is about her stupid ass not his, now STFU

It kind of understood that church people will do anything for money so people aren't upset at Travis Greene really. He took the money and cashed it quietly. She trying to justify her decision instead of just letting everything fade from memory.

A hit dog will holla ... if it were me, I would cash my Trump check and keep it pushing. I kinda feel bad for her because she isn't the first black person to benefit from Trump checks! We were silent when Nene Leakes. Kenya Moore and Vivica Fox were bragging about cashing "Trump checks" but that was fine as long as he wasn't in power. Donald been the same racist, misogynistic fool for the past 50 years ... ain't a damn thing changed but he is the president.

As for her, what is done is done, but harping on it and giving it new life by addressing it everyday is doing her no good. Like someone said, move on and stop addressing it. It is like she is trying to assuage her own guilt on social media and NO ONE is checking for her.

Girlfriend I ain't mad at you! Get your money! Quiet as it's kept some of these folks would've done the same if they had the courage that you did. SHE GOT BILLS AT HER HOUSE FYM!!!

Every pic of her I see on this site she looks gorgeous. I read about her on Variety, and she looks a mess. They're only using pics of her from one event where she was a bit overweight, wearing a dress that doesn't fit her, and she's sweaty as hell. That's fucked up. I don't have enough faith in media to believe Variety didn't do that on purpose.

@3:37 Maybe so but not ME

A good name is BETTER than Riches

#Bible

When the money is gone, she will still be stuck with a Bad Name & No Respect

For the record i was a fan of her's when she first came out because she is undeniably Talented.

IMO she would be better off admitting that she feels guilty rather than justify her actions
Because the public can be forgiving

Or at least just be quiet about it and take a break from social media intil things die down
That would be the other smart option

I knew something was leading to the fiance..he's now her manager. On that reality show, her mom managed her career. Wow...I thought he had his own coin but we've all seen how this goes...

Mary and Kendu
Bey and Jay-Z (we all know Matty did it better)
I even read that before Florence Ballard went broke, her husband tried to manage her but didn't know what he was doing.

Dude killed her career before they made it down the aisle.

Spoken Word when your singing vocals lay dead on the studio floor - dusty, scared and confused by bad decisions.

2:31 actually she took him to court in 2007 for embezzling from her then HE sued HER for defamation. I see him as another Fantasia's husband-he did a video dissing Spike Lee for not using her music. I'm sure they'll come out with an 'All Lives Matter' post soon.
