chrisette michele is the soul we are talking about today.
the trump forests allegedly paid her 250k to perform this mess…
i’m embarrassed for them all.
you can barely even hear her.
what a disaster.
i was expecting a solo “beyonce-esque” performance tbh.
at least if you gonna get dragged to “black”-balled hell,
do it with a wind machine and some circus type stunts.
questlove told her not to do it.
spike lee advised against and took her song off his show.
her own supporters begged her to cancel.
even those who never heard of her.
chrisette still went ahead and did it for 250k.
now is that a full 250 before or after taxes?
if the foxhole collectively told me not to take a certain gig,
i wouldn’t do it regardless of money.
even if i explained why and it sounded good in my head.
and those who love and support me mean more than that.
i also feel the foxhole has my back and wouldn’t steer me towards doom.
chrisette had that and chose to do different.
i hope she can make that alleged money last a few years.
i suspect she is done.
maybe i’m being too hard on her?
she could be in a real financial debt.
i had to wonder about doing certain things for money.
some folks are out here living well because of selling their souls.
is it really worth it in the end tho?
for someone like chrisette michele,
who is a not really known,
is it wise to take things that will get you to be a household name?
so i had to ask the foxhole,
if you were a singer with a “eh” career like chrisette michele,
and got the opportunity to perform for trump…
Would you have taken the gig?
lowkey: maybe she is tired of the industry and this is her way of getting out?
nothing better than strapping bombs to your chest in a beautiful gown.
i will say that this is a huge life lesson for everyone tho.
it gave me an “a-ha” moment.
