K.Michelle is not backing down from her explosive rant at one blogger last week during a New York premiere party for “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta.”
The 0 F*cks Given singer felt that she was sticking up for her co-star Mimi Faust when she first spoke out during last week’s event. But her commentary went from defending Mimi and other reality stars to outright bashing Black entertainment site, Bossip.
Although the blogger hadn’t written the article she was so mad about, she snapped on them for even working at Bossip. The reporter, who wasn’t even speaking to the singer at first, had tried to congratulate K.Michelle about her success, she didn’t want to hear it and wound up insulting his personal appearance and told him to kiss her behind.
“It’s unfortunate that K.Michelle chose last night’s LHHATL premiere party as an opportunity to blast BOSSIP, however we can’t say that we’re particularly surprised given her past behavior on the show and on Twitter,” Bossip Senior Editor Janeé Bolden said in a statement, owning up to the fact that the one of the site can be a little harsh. “We’re known for going hard on celebrities, but we’re also known for working with them when they give us something to work with. Michelle had plenty of opportunities to air any grievances with us in private before the event.
Pointing out that K.Michelle’s target was actually an intern for Bossip’s parent company, she added, “Last night’s outburst was not only unnecessary, it was completely misdirected since the gentleman who asked her the question was not even a member of the Bossip editorial staff.”
Bossip’s statement aside, K.Michelle felt completely justified in her on-stage attack. “It’s not in my job description to take abuse from bloggers,” she told VH1 on Thursday. “I have a voice just like they do and just because I’m in the public eye doesn’t make it right that I should be immune to any type of disrespect.”
The major offense, in K.Michelle’s opinion, was that she felt Bossip had insulted her and those of her fans that need financial assistance from the government.
A statement was made by the always negative BOSSIP, that my concerts and fans use EBT/ food stamps,” said K, who felt the state was insensitive and unprofessional. “The comment directed towards my castmate was also inappropriate. I took a stand, these blogs are out of control. We are human and their comments are hurtful.”
