After the twitter blow up about Keyshia Cole and her comments on former Destiny’s Child stand in Michelle Williams, this whole thing made me think about how the public perceives entertainers. Which is ironic and funny at the same time, because the fans (to a less degree) and non-supporters (to a bigger degree) of many of these artist are so invested in their lives. This whole “stan” thing is even crazier if you ask me. I’d be really culture shocked if I knew I had stans lol. But I digress. Anyway, fast forward to today, and the social media (aka twitter-verse) village idiots are still hassling that girl a week later. All over her personal opinion of one of her peers.
Granted she tweeted her personal stance again last night on her current thoughts of Michelle. And the internet community blew up again at her over it. Stating that she’s still talking ish and hadn’t stopped all week. From the outside looking in, yes, it seems that way. But that isn’t the case. Clearly those behind their smart phones and computer screens fail to realize how she was bombarded with BS all week about Michelle (via twitter, IG, photo-shop, lame jokes and jabs about her mom’s addiction), even when she wasn’t saying anything about ole girl. So who’s really mad? If the attention starved twitter stalkers had left her alone, maybe she would stop talking about your girl Michelle.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying what Keyshia did was right, in regards to how she delivered her opinion. However, she was completely entitled to have one and openly state it like everybody else. Honestly would it matter if she was PC and cookie cutter about how she felt? Nope, because she would still be seen as the hater, villain, with a bad attitude. Not to mention Keyshia said Michelle had a few snide remarks FIRST about her performance on the Soul Train awards. How do y’all know that isn’t true? Either way, this brings me to say I don’t understand why artist can’t honestly express how they feel about their peers.
After all, they know more about them than the outsiders do. As someone who creates music herself, it’s ironic how these bloggers, fans, interviewers ect…are so against artist/celebs speaking on their peers, but yet want them to be honest and forth-coming about themselves. Oxymoron much. All I’m saying is, if you want these artist to be honest, then let them be that across the board. Don’t only agree when it’s convenient truth for you. Everybody isn’t going to like your favorite. You’ll deal. I’ll be honest, I wasn’t thinking about Michelle or DC either (and let’s keep it real some of y’all know you weren’t either). Further more, I didn’t even watch the Superbowl or any of that. I’m not into those types of things. So I really didn’t pay it any mind.
Speaking of which, yes it was nice that Michelle was on that stage. But not every artist defines their career or success by that, or awards and record sales. And not every artist does music for that reason either. Is it nice to have all that? Yeah, but that doesn’t make you unsuccessful, broke, or irrelevant because you don’t have it. In the words of my girl Monica - “I may not get called for the biggest stages but at least my platform is a real one. And I’m thankful for that.” Anyway, with that being said, y’all will get over Michelle being dissed. It really ain’t that serious. There are so many other things going on in the world. Especially since the village idiots deem Keyshia as forgotten about and irrelevant. And DC and Michelle have so much more money. Ok, I’m done and over it.
