liar Liar pants on fire.

Omarosa put her on for lots of money. Save the self-service.

You don't have to support the worst thing that ever happened to america to have a voice. The people you will be performing for, first of all, probably don't even know who you are; have a disdain for black people who dont act like a shuck and jiver like Kanye or Steve Harvey, who can only stomach black women like Omarosa who has sold her soul to the devil to be recognized by him.

All the crap our legends had to go through to be recognized, living through Jim Crow, etc. you new artists stand on their soldiers.

By supporting someone like trump it's like you're pissing on the graves who had to endure unmentionable hostility and racism. Now that we've moved on up, it's ok to devalue their sacrifices because you getting paid.

Miss me with that, mess. The ONLY you and others trump has disparaged is that the dollar is green and it's worth the price to dance with the devil himself. He paid you well, and now you will drink the kool aid and think you're doing something for your race.

Miss me, yes get that money, but save the self-service for your girl Omarosa, who would sell out the black community for 30 shekels.

Trump and white nationalists have disparaged blacks at every turn, most recently inthis election, saying we got nothing, we are nothing and we ain't never gonna be nothing unless we kiss his ring.

Glad to see MOST of us ain't buying what he's selling.

but yea, girl, get that check, but remember: all money ain't good money!

i agree @ 11:46 and she doesn't need to perform to make some type of commentary on "not being silent." She can make her voice heard other ways. Also, Dr. King is so often misquoted. The man was a radical not the Santa Claus he is often re imaged into. He was killed by these same people she's hoping on stage for. smh.

girl trump is the renegade president. he has violated ethics, have refused to release his tax returns because it would show how disqualified he was to be president; he has never listened to anyone but himself. He has also gotten into bed with America's arch enemy, who was an enemy of every administration except Trumps. He bragged about being a sexual predator and he has dogged women out saying if they don't drink his kool aid then they got to be on their period. ugh

Every relationhip fails, and when by the time Putin gets finished with Trump and American, money won't help ya.

But support him, though; sit at his table and eat his bread and keep on believing he cares about anyone but himself and how he is perceived in public.

If you think that because he's president he is suddenly gonna start caring about people who served him no purpose in building his empire, then you're sadly mistaken

trump aint thinking about nobody but trump and those who tow his line to line his pockets. He refuses to follow any rules and let's not get to talking about the tweets

People criticize her for performing at the Trump event but go and make money at a white supremacist organization everyday. A lot of yall work under or with racist folk everyday for a dollar. Let her live.

Yes to all of this! I am so disappointed! Its laughable to suggest a single singing performance will change Trump's clear agenda. Kudos to Questlove for offering to pay her NOT to perform. I used to be a huge fan of Chrisette but will NEVER buy another album EVER. I don't know if I'm more disappointed or disgusted!

^^^^I agree...further I'd bet money half the ninjas complaining about Chrisette DID NOT EVEN VOTE

$750,000....That's what her friend Omarosa helped her recieve. Chrisette don't give damn about healing, it's about getting paid $750,000

we've got no choice; we go to work and put in a honest day's work, and don't have to sacrifice who we are because we are honestly working, and not looking for a come up because everything else we've tried has failed miserably.

Ain't nothing wrong, just tell the truth.
Just say the price was right, and if you were me, you'd take the check too. But this oh I'm doing it for the race thing is BS, especially considering her sponsor.

Had she not been friends with Evilene, she would have never gotten the call; nobody knows her name, but they will now.

I just hope THEY appreciate her R&B set because those white nationalists dont know nothing bout no r&B

lollllll

Cue music: Beyonce and Dixie Chicks

lolllll

And the first thing the cracker does when he comes in power, he takes all the Negro leaders and invites them for coffee to show that he’s alright. And those Uncle Toms can’t pass up the coffee. They come away from the coffee table telling you and me that this man is alright 'cause he’s from the South, and since he’s from the South he can deal with the South. Look at the logic that they’re using. What about Eastland? He’s from the South. Make him the President. He can -- If Johnson is a good man 'cause he’s from Texas, and being from Texas will enable him to deal with the South, Eastland can deal with the South better than Johnson. Oh, I say you been mislead. You been had. You been took.

Bottom line. Just keep it real. It ain't for healing or the American people black race. Too many opportunities to do that not performing for Trump. Welcoming in a man who for the life of I can't understand how he even got that far. No one in their right mind should have voted for him just because he said the nothing he said..lol but good job America

She doesn't have to lower herself to do something this strange for a little "change" i think in the future her record sales will plummet

First of all this is so stupid on her part and is basically career suicide. The claim is she's supposed to be paid $750,000 to do this but I call bullshit right there. TMZ reported another white band was reported to play the inauguration but wanted to be paid 1 million dollars and Trump's team refused to pay that much so the band was turned down. So then why would they turn around and pay Chrisette Michelle anywhere close to that amount even though she's a D list R&B singer who most of the country doesn't know or care about?

Second of all if she pisses off her fan base and they turn their backs on her is Trump going to continue to cut her a check after the inauguration is done and over with?... the answer is HELL NO! What is she gonna do when black clubs and venues stop booking her and the 5 fans she has now, stop buying her albums? I hope selling out for 1 pay check is worth it girl.

All of this outrage! No one is paying any of this girls bills or keeping her fed but HER!

Anonymous said...

Girl BYE! Shuck and jive on stage for masta, collect your check, and sit your ass down! All this bullshit about unifying and healing the country is complete nonsense. Does she plan on donating the check she's getting from this, to some type of charity? If the answer is no then she needs to keep it real, she's doing this strictly for the cash and I would respect her more if she straight up said that. The fact that she hid this until she was exposed proves she's a bold faced liar. She knew nobody would be here for this. Also can she explain how her singing a song or two to a crowd of racist rednecks and white supremacist (Trump's main supporters and cabinet picks AND Trump himself) How is that gonna change or unify anyone? Girl stop the bullshit.

she already lost an opportunity with Spike Lee. I wouldn't do it. I asked my husband a few months ago if he was offered a million dollars to do a trump commercial would he do it, the answer was no. And we have $25,000. in credit card debt.

2:35 The people who buy her albums and pay to see her concerts and live shows actually do pay her bills tho. And if they stop, what is she going to do?

She can write and produce for other artists and work behind the scenes.

he only way tRump can even begin to have a serious, and meaningful, dialogue with the black community would be if he apologized for being a leader of the Birther Movement. Anything short of acknowledging his part in trying to delegitimize President Obama, and not merely a one sentence throw away line, is a non starter for most of us in the black community. I'm not holding my breath because he is incapable of ever admitting to a mistake, and it's damn near impossible for a 70 year old dog to learn a new trick.

So what do her singing has to do with making things better? Oh it's the money..

Miss Unit said...

She damn well know it's about the money, because she know's ain't nobody checked for her in a minute, I mean she was on RB Divas. So, stop acting like this is about saving the young generation, when you know it's about that dollar!

Bish...get'cho money. If Beyonce can sing in her birthday suit, while doing very simulating sex dance choreography (Lord only knows what else she does)...for evil, demonic, world leaders, who kill just for sport...And if she can be forgiven and put upon a pedestal... then dammit Chrisette Michele can entertain while fully clothed, singing, beautifully playing the piano and collect a paycheck, too.

Ms. Beyhive also played for Bush, when he was elected/selected, too. But nobody saying nothing about that and she remained upon her pedestal and collected, as usual. IJS, is all... Neither are my favs, but what's fair is fair. And I know like the rest of the world knows that Chrisette doesn't have and probably will never have the same type of mega influence that Bey has.

The bridge nonsense again. Mama get your money and just keep it real. Nice font though all jokes aside we stand together for a reason. The boycott was to let him know we are watching and that photo ops mean nothing to us and that as a collective we are unified and ready for the ups and downs. I have love for you and you should known intuitively that he Is not worthy of your gift. He is and racist and you are his African American.

Let the girl collect her coins man. She's. Yeah sure Trump is alot of things but money is money. Some of y'all frontin' like the Big A list singers ain't sang for dictators and ish but wanna come for chrisette like she conspired against the nation or something. And at least she's getting the exposure that she needs now.

And if y'all are really about that life why don't y'all turn down an extra shift or a day's pay at your job when you know dang well you got some extra mouth's to feed.

..That's what I thought. Yeah she could have been blunt and said it's about the money but either way she is collecting. And im not a fan. So here. She will get coined after that performance. So here. Bye!
