Last week there were rumors that R&B singer Chrisette Michele's planned performance at Donald Trump's inauguration had been down-graded to a lower profile set at one of the inauguration balls [click here if you missed that].
That's not even the worst of it.
Turns out Chrisette didn't even get to meet the president...
In an interview with Billboard Magazine Chrisette Michele admits,
"Originally I was supposed to perform directly after his first speech, and I had done that with Barack Obama before, so I was used to that kind of experience. And the woman who organized the event came and told me, “Now you’re going to go first and he’s going to go after you.”
"I looked her in the eye and said, “My family has disowned me. If you decide to Google me, you’ll see that America is writing about me in their newspapers. I’m the black poster child for discord right now, and he’s not going to shake my hand?”
"So no, I didn’t get to meet him."Read the full interview here.
