Chrisette Michele Says ‘What Do You Think History Has Proven In This Tale?’ After Reposting Tweet About Being Un-Cancelled
Is it finally time to un-cancel Chrisette Michele?
Earlier today (8/31), we reposted a tweet from journalist Jawn Murray, asking if it was time to un-cancel singer and actress Chrisette Michele. The tweet, which Chrisette reposted said,
“Since our culture is so hyped about Kanye West’s #Donda album; it’s time to UNcancel @ChrisetteM! I hated her singing at 45’s inauguration…but #ChrisetteMichele never disrespected our history/ancestors; didn’t rock a MAGA hat; & never ran a convert campaign to sway an election!”
Some considered Chrisette Michele to be “canceled” for performing at Donald Trump’s Presidential Inauguration with gospel artist Travis Greene.
In her caption, Michele said,
“Should Chrisette Michele be Un-Cancelled?” I always wonder how to respond to this question. It’s actually the reason I don’t do interviews anymore. Being compared to Kanye & Travis for the last 5 years. Watching them soar into the highest realms of stardom. Waiting on Gods hand to show me exactly what my story will look like.”
She continued saying,
“I’ve made a choice to stay full of gratitude and master peace, but today, this post has inspired me to allow the energy of comparison to enter my feed. I think most of the comments are well intended and I’m not really attached to the results of the conversation. But it is an interesting topic. Kanye endorsed him, Travis sang with me, and… time unfolded.”
Chrisette ended with,
“What do YOU think history has proven in this tale? What did you think 5 years ago? What do you think today? Would you release new music if you were me? What would you sing about? Who would you sing to? Why? What does my role as FEMALE play in this story? What about my role as Christian? How about my role as it compares to Kanye & Travis?”
Following the performance she lost an album distribution deal and most station stop playing her music, including the wedding popular song, ‘A Couple Of Forevers.’
Additionally she shared that she suffered a miscarriage as a result from the stress she endured death threats and criticism.
Both Kanye West and Travis Greene have continued to release music throughout the years, including Donda, which is Kanye’s 10th studio album.
