Method Man Issues Apology To Destiny’s Child For Treating Them Badly During A Time He Had ‘Low Self-Esteem’ & Wasn’t Happy W/ Himself: To This Day, That Sh*T Hurt My Heart
Method Man is owning up to his faults and giving out a few apologies.
Rapper Method Man, born Clifford Smith, Jr.??, has seemingly done a lot of growing over the years. During a recent interview with fellow rapper Math Hoffa, Method Man issued a public apology to Destiny’s Child for an incident that happened over 20 years ago.
The “Bring The Pain” rapper recalled initially meeting the original members of Destiny’s Child at the UK’s MOBO Awards in 1999 alongside JAY-Z and Dame Dash. According to Method Man, their first interaction went down during a time in his life when he didn’t like himself or anyone else. He said,
“So that meant anything that would have come in my circumference at that point in time was gonna get it. My family went through a lot with my a** during that era, man. And I can admit that I did take a lot of my f*cking misery out on them, and they did not deserve it. And I took some of my misery out on people at Def Jam that did not f*cking deserve it.”
Method Man then shared that the next time he ran into Destiny’s Child the group was down to 3 members, Beyoncé Knowles, Kelly Rowland, and Michelle Williams, and he was still in his “low self-esteem era.” He shared that when he walked up to the ladies to say hi they didn’t respond because they couldn’t hear him over the loud event. However, he took their lack of acknowledgment personally. He said,
“My a**, in my head, with my low self-esteem, is like, ‘They just sh*tted on me.’ When in fact, they didn’t even hear me. It was so loud in that m*thaf*cka. That’s the excuse that I’m giving right now – they didn’t even f*cking hear me.”
He continued and shared that when the ladies of Destiny’s Child tried to shake his hand, later on, he snubbed them.
“Afterward, Rockwilder, he was gonna do the ‘Bootylicious’ song for them. He comes over, he’s talking to them, he’s like, ‘Oh, you know Red and Meth?’ And they put their hands out to shake, and I kept my hand here and was like, ‘Go ‘head with that Hollywood sh*t.’”
He then took the time to apologize for his actions. He said,
“To this day, that sh*t hurt my heart because neither Kelly, Beyoncé or Michelle ever did any f*cking thing to me.”
“But me being so miserable and in that f*cking moment, I felt like they wasn’t treating me the way I should have been treated. Who am I to think that about these girls? And to this day, man, I don’t think I’ve ever apologized for that.”
