Last night’s Love And Hip Hop Atlanta premiere party was everything we hoped it would be–dramatic, entertaining, and filled with tight dresses. While five cast members made the trip to New York, K. Michelle stole the show by chewing out a BOSSIP employee from up above. In this group it’s difficult to compete with the likes of Stevie J., Joseline, and Momma Dee, but from what we’ve seen of Season Two, Michelle delivers onscreen as well.
VH1 heard from BOSSIP this afternoon, and here is their official statement on the matter: “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,” says BOSSIP Senior Editor Janeé Bolden, clarifying that the person who sparked Michelle’s rant is actually an intern for BOSSIP parent company, Moguldom Media. “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 opportunity to air any grievances with us in private before the event. Last night’s outburst was not only unnecessary, it was completely misdirected since the gentleman who stood to ask her the question was not even a member of the BOSSIP editorial staff.”
When asked for a comment from VH1, Michelle responded with the following:
It’s not in my job description to take abuse from bloggers. 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. A statement was made by the ALWAYS negative BOSSIP, that my concerts and fans use EBT/ food stamps. To make fun of people who have to receive this type of government assistance is not only insensitive but unprofessional. The comment directed towards my cast mate was also inappropriate. I took a stand, these blogs are out of control. We are human and their comments are hurtful.
My job is to be an artist, connect with my fans, and deliver every time I hit the stage. It’s time to take it back to what’s most important, the music.
VH1 also chatted with Michelle after the Love And Hip Hop Atlanta event about her tendency to speak her mind. Watch the video below.
