It’s not every day that Erykah Badu sits down for an interview. So we were happy to learn that she recently spoke with “The Breakfast Club” crew. And we all know celebrities often end up keeping it very real with those three. Plus, Badu is not really known for being fraudulent. Anyway, during her sit down she spoke about everything from her son Seven to her clash with Azealia Banks. But what I found most interesting was that she cleared the record and told her side of the story when it came to her breakup with rapper Common. Check out a few highlights from the interview below and watch the full video on the next page.
Clash with Azealia Banks
I think sometimes, if we’re not careful, we can let people instigate us into some kind of weird situation. It’s the people around who are repeating it, retweeting and retweeting. I didn’t even know she was going to read it…That’s the way it is. I was just saying some sh*t really. Now I got some hardcore a$$ b*tch after me. I’m peeping around corners everywhere I go.
On her son Seven
Yeah, he turned 18 on November 18th.
Yee: How protective are you because he worked on your album and he worked with Gwen Stefani but are you really protective of him as your son in this industry?
Not really, no. He’s not really into that kind of thing. He’s a nerd. He’s into studies and computers and things. He’s talented by default and he has exquisite taste.
Envy: But look who his mommy and daddy is. He had to be talented.
He’s an improvement on a design though. He’s next level.
Envy: Was that a true, ‘I’m just going to try this one night, we taping’ or was it a studio…
In rehearsal, a lot of times, we just play around and do stuff. But I didn’t know it was going to turn into “Tyrone.” So the background vocals were prepared because they kind of know the joke. But it just kind of turned into a song. It was totally freestyle.
Yee: You ruined everybody named Tyrone after that.
Erykah: *Chuckles* I know.
Breakup with Common
Yee: He said you called him and said, ‘I don’t want to be with you anymore.’
That’s not true. You know I never got a chance to say anything. I tried to breakup with him so many times. That was the last time.
Envy: It’s hard to break up with a light skinned person, man.
It’s hard. They don’t get it. They don’t understand. They keep coming.
Yee: That is true. You try to break up with some guys and they act like it never happened.
That’s right. He didn’t believe it.
Charlemagne: How many times did you try to break up with him?
Ok, I’m exaggerating a little bit. It was just kind of like, we were growing apart. We hadn’t seen each other in a little while. I told him that I needed space.
Yee: So you tried to do the fade out?
I tried to do the fade out. But I ended up putting myself in a trick bag. But you know, me and Common are still very close too. He’s really sweet. He’s the most compassionate human being I’ve ever met, I think. Very kind…hearted. But it’s all about chemistry, you gotta have chemistry.
Charlemagne: How do you know when it’s up, when the chemistry’s done?
If the chemistry was never there, it was just never there. But you know there’s a process that you take to get to know people. You know, you date people. There’s certain things that are awesome and certain things that really don’t mesh with you. In Common’s case, he’s just awesome all the way around, just the chemistry’s a little different.
Charlemagne: Did he ever be like, ‘What am I supposed to do with all these clothes I bought?’
We all have a group of friends we love to hang out and share our lives with. Whether it’s the friend you go to for advice or the friend who will turn up with you anywhere at any time, Black women build long-lasting friendships and cherish the memories we create with our BFFs. And from time to time, you come to admire women who, if you were very lucky, could be a great addition to your circle of friends. Here are some notable and admirable Black women I would definitely want to call a friend.
“The Unfu*kwitable Friend”
Some of our friends can’t be touched. No matter the obstacle, they are prepared. That’s totally Baltimore City State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby. Most of us got to know her during her televised announcement of her decision to indict the six officers involved in the death of Freddie Gray. She tactfully read the charges and compassionately addressed the youth of Baltimore with a word of hope and promise that she was working hard on their behalf to seek justice. After the press conference, she was criticized, and naysayers wanted her taken off the case, but the detractors couldn’t have their way. Don’t mess with her!
“I Didn’t Leave My Family To Be With Kylie”: Tyga Finally Explains Himself, And His Relationship With Kylie Jenner
People have been giving Tyga the perpetual side-eye since he first started stepping out side-by-side with Kylie Jenner. But after Amber Rose basically said what everyone was thinking about their situationship on The Breakfast Club over the weekend, I guess the rapper, 25, finally felt like it was time to speak up and let people know what’s really going on between him and 17-year-old Jenner. He sat down with The Breakfast Club this morning to clear the air about that. He also talked about his issues with Drake, and their recent squabble after Drizzy dissed him on a new song, and Tyga responded by calling him a b***h on Twitter. Grab your honey, because here’s the tea:
On Amber Rose Saying “He Should Be Ashamed” For Leaving Blac Chyna For Kylie
I’m not dating Kylie. I just want to get that out the way. I want to be clear to everybody that I didn’t leave my family to be with Kylie. That’s ridiculous. I feel like, me and [Blac] Chyna, we broke up almost close to a year now because of the decision we made, and things in our relationship that wasn’t going right, so we decided to split to raise an emotionally stable kid. That’s what we did and now we have a great relationship. I just want to be clear about that. I didn’t leave nobody to be with anybody. It just wasn’t working. Sometimes you feel like, when you have a kid, and that early, you don’t want to raise an emotionally unstable kid. They pick up on everything. Now we have a great relationship. He spends as much time as can with his mom. He spends as much time as he can with me. It’s cool now, it ain’t no pressure.
If Blac Chyna Is Upset About His “Friendship” With Kylie Jenner
Yeah, it’s because what people make it seem and TMZ. You gotta think, TMZ didn’t really care about me until they figured out that I live next door to Kim and Kanye and all that stuff. But I been friends with them before I even met Chyna. I was friends with Scott [Disick] and her family for years, so me hanging out with them, it wasn’t nothing new. But now people just want to make a story out of it because, okay, we figured out who Tyga is and we see who he’s affiliated with…It’s crazy. The sh*t that they make up is the craziest thing I’ve ever heard of. People is crazy, bro. I’ve been knowing her and her family for a long time. In black culture, it’s different. If you hang around someone, you’re smashing them. But like, white people, white culture, it’s different. They really are friends. “Yo, this my friend.” It’s genuine. It’s different. And how we think is a little different with our mentality. For me though, if I’m friends with her and I’m friends with her sister, they hos, or we smashing them. We’re really friends. I respect her mom and I know her whole family.
Why He Hasn’t Tried To Sue TMZ If They’re Lying About Him And Kylie
When you decide you want to get on that screen, that’s what you deal with. People can turn it on and off. We live in the TV, you guys live on the radio. People can turn that on and off and go on with their regular life. You know what I’m saying? So they really don’t care what goes on in our life. They’re going to watch this and then they’re going to watch Big Sean, they’re going to see Wiz, they’re going to see Chris [Brown]. They don’t really care. It’s just entertainment. But once you vow to do that and be an entertainer, that’s what you deal with.
On Dressing Up As Chucky And The Bride Of Chucky With Kylie For Halloween
I thought it was cool. We were going to J. Lo’s Halloween party, so I don’t want to be the only muthaf**ka there without a costume. But what does that mean? It’s not like I’m holding hands with her or kissing her. I’m not doing anything disrespectful. I’m raising my son. I see my son every day. He’s with me every day if he’s not with Chyna or if we’re not spending time together.
If He Would Be Mad If Chyna Had A New Man And She Had Him Taking Pics With Their Son, King
Kylie doesn’t do that. There was a picture with King, but that was a year and a half ago. Chyna was at the house when she came over and visited King. [Chyna] wouldn’t do that. She wouldn’t let nobody take a picture with my son, and I wouldn’t put him in that situation. But if she was dating somebody else, it’s on her to dictate her life. Just as it’s on me to dictate my life. If I decide in the future that I want to be with Kylie, or if I decide in the future that I want to be with her again or be with somebody else, I’m going to dictate my life.
His Thoughts On Kylie
The thing about her, she’s just a good person. You ever meet somebody and you feel like their energy is just good? It’s not negative. We’re not talking about what’s on MediaTakeOut today and what’s negative and stuff. She’s just a good person who comes from a good upbringing. I’ve never met someone like that, her and her family, and how they deal with the bullsh*t they deal with.
If Kylie’s Family Had An Issue With Their Alleged Friendship
I’m pretty sure it was weird to see us hanging out, but it wasn’t weird to nobody in her family really. I always come to the crib, even if I was with Chyna or King. King, he’ll play with North. The nannies will link up and they’ll go to the park together. It was never a weird situation when I was hanging out with Kylie. When they found out that I wasn’t with Chyna, they were like, ‘What happened?’ I linked Chyna and Kim together. I introduced them. It’s not like they were best friends and she betrayed her. It was nothing like that.
On Calling Drake A B***h On Twitter And Then Deleting It After Drake Dissed Him
Sometimes you have a lightskin moment. First of all, we live in the same…He knows exactly where my house is. I know exactly where his house is. In Calabasas. We live next to each other. My thing is, if it’s real it’s real. If it’s not, it’s not. I just don’t f**k with him as a person because of the experiences that I’ve had with him personally. I’m not going against who he is as a person in the public or his music or anything like that, like I said his music is great. It’s undeniable.
It’s not really a beef it’s just personal experiences that I’ve had with him, phone calls and just stuff like that. I feel like he’s a nice guy on the outside but he’s not genuine. He plays people left and right. That’s just my opinion and I’m entitled to have my own opinion. At the end of the day, when I did that [VIBE] interview, I said exactly how I felt at that moment.
Interesting enough, right after the interview, Charlamagne still picked Tyga to be his “Donkey of the Day.” I guess it’s safe to say that people don’t necessarily believe that Jenner is in the friend zone. How about you?
“I Waited For Him” Amber Rose On Wanting Wiz To Grow Up, Why He Called Her A ‘Foul Creature’ And Her New Boo
After Wiz talked his ish all on Twitter, Amber Rose, who actually has a couple of things to promote, has made recent appearances on Hot 97 and most recently The Breakfast Club. And in the latter, she opened up about everything from waiting on Wiz to grow up and come home, even after she filed for divorce, to James Harden, the NBA baller she’s currently dating and even why Wiz was going off on her via Twitter.
See what she had to say.
Wanting to work it out
Of course. He was the love of my life. It wasn’t over for me for a long time. I cried it out. I cried a lot, like all day, everyday. I cried and cried and wanted him to come home. He’s young and has a lot of life to live and now that I’m done crying, all the girls don’t bother me anymore.
I’ll never say never because he’s the father of my child and he’s still technically my husband. And I’ll always love him. But right now, I’m not with that sh*t…It’s like ‘Dude, that’s not you.’ That’s not the man that I know. But apparently that’s who he is now and I don’t want to be a part of that.
Why she filed for divorce
Amber: When something irrational happens to you, you then act irrationally and that’s why I filed for divorce so quickly. He was just changing. You all know, Wiz isn’t a bad guy…great spirit, that’s why I married him.
Charlemagne: Wiz is a young rapper, he’s allowed at least three hall passes…
Amber: What if he…
DJ Envy: …used them up.
Yee: Do you think you changed at all in the marriage?
Amber: For sure. I became a mother. I’m not at the club every night downing shots. My priorities definitely did change.
Why Wiz called her a ‘foul creature’
Amber: Because he was mad. He was mad that I cut Sebastian’s hair. My son has a lot of hair and he’s a strong little boy. So I always try to deep condition his hair in the back when he lays on it. And he’s not having it. And by him sleeping on it was starting to get matted in one spot. And I couldn’t get it out. He wouldn’t let me brush it or comb it or nothing. I was like this boy needs a haircut. Cam obviously wanted his hair to be long but the boy needed a haircut. I’m not going to walk around with my son having a dread in the back of his head.
Envy: That’s the problem. You got to talk to him before you take your son to the barbershop.
Amber: I did!
Envy: But you did it anyway.
Amber: But my son was in pain though. He was going ‘Mommy, mommy.’ He was pulling it, it was hurting him. That’s my baby. I’m not going to see my son in pain.
Which explains this tweet:
Amber: You know you get petty when you’re still in love with someone.
Her friendship with Blac Chyna
Amber: I ran into her at the mall in L.A. I was a little nervous about being friends with her because she was friends with with Kim.
Charlemagne: So you don’t rock with Kim?
Angela Yee: Duh! She was sending naked pictures to Kanye and she asked her to stop, when they were dating, and she didn’t stop.
Amber: That was years ago, I think we’re all off that now.
Charlemagne: Don’t nobody care about naked pictures of Kim. Everybody got those.
Amber: I was nervous at first with Chyna but when we started talking…she’s just an amazing girl. The thing I love about Chyna, to this day, is that as many times as she hung out with Kim, she never came to me and told me anything bad about Kim. So I feel like she wouldn’t do that to me. Her and Kim’s relationship didn’t work out.
Yee: Because of Tyga I’m sure.
Amber: She’s always said that Kim was a very nice girl. It really doesn’t have to do anything with Kim. It’s just a very awkward situation.
Amber: I have a valentine this year.
Yee: Is it James Harden?
Amber: Me and James have a very special friendship, for sure.
Charlemagne: You put your pussy on James’ side burns.
Amber: Not yet. I didn’t get the D yet. I’m not going to lie. But Valentine’s day is tomorrow. If he acts right…
Charlemagne: Wiz going to roll up a blunt thiissss big….
Amber: I met him in Vegas a month ago and we just had a conversation…when I met him we just developed a really nice friendship.
Back to Wiz
Amber: I waited at home for him for a long time. I waited, and I waited and I waited.
Envy: So you would have forgave him?
Amber: Yeah. I did. I already have.
Envy: You have a tattoo of Wiz on your arm. Are you going to cover it?
Amber: I’m not in a rush. My son sees that on my arm and he’s like ‘Daddy.’ It’s not really a big deal for me.
Charlemagne: I got a feeling that you’re waiting for Wiz to grow up.
Amber: I want to! Ideally, I would want him to come home and we could start over. But now, I’m kind of at the point where…you know, I waited for him. I did. Even after I filed and everything, I still waited for him to come home. He just didn’t. He never came home. And there comes a point where I can’t be lonely every night. I can’t sit around and wait for him to grow up. I just can’t. I have to move on.
Yee: Does he ever flip flop though and send you text messages like ‘we need to start all over’?
Amber: He has but he still ain’t never come home. And that’s something that I had to deal with. Like I said, I cried a lot. My heart was broken. Thank God I had Chyna with me every single day and my assistant and my mom to talk me through it. I just listened to a lot of Alanis Morisette. A lot of Trina. God bless you Trina.
Charlemagne: If y’all do get back together, it’s going to be hard if you stack up a higher body count.
Amber: Didn’t I just tell you I waited for my husband? I’d been waiting for him. He didn’t come home. So now, if I have a Valentine that’s a really nice guy, that treats me nice, if I want to get the D, Ima get the D. Trust me. That’s it.
Envy: Get that D!
Tyga and Kylie
Amber: She’s a baby. She needs to go to bed. It’s 7’o clock. And relax. Nah, I’m over that. That’s ridiculous. He should be ashamed of himself. That’s how I feel for sure.
Yee: What happens if you run into them in LA?
Amber: I ain’t speaking to them. At all. He has a beautiful woman and a baby and left that for a sixteen year old that just turned seventeen. Nah.
But guess what, that’s up to her and her mother…
Listen, I really don’t hate those girls but I just don’t respect them.
Charlemagne: Why don’t you respect them because a lot of people would say some of the things you guys do are similar?
Amber: It’s really not though. Because if I want to have my titties out on the beach, that’s exactly what I’m going to do. I’m not going to have my titties and be like ‘Oh my God I can’t believe they caught me…’ It’s just fake to me. She’s such a beautiful girl and she has the potential to be really dope but, to me, she’s not. It has nothing to do with Kanye.
Charlemagne: Do you think she and Kanye are a good match?
Amber: They are a match made in heaven for sure.
Charlemagne: I heard that you broke up with him.
Amber: I definitely left Kanye for sure.
Even though I grabbed all the juiciest parts for y’all, I strongly suggest listening to the whole segment. In it she talks about how she keeps her face looking right. Her new book, How To Be A Bad Bitch, where she discusses all the mistakes she’s made in her life and career and more.
I’ve always said I love listening to Charlemagne on “The Breakfast Club” but I would be scared to actually meet him. On the one hand it’s refreshing to listen to someone who is so honest in expressing his thoughts on music and pop culture. Charlemagne has said that Wendy Williams taught him he could either be for the people or for the industry. He chose the former and it shows.
But I would be scared to meet and have a conversation with him because Charlemagne frequently makes disparaging and disrespectful remarks to and about women. He gawks at women when they sit next to him, commenting on their bodies. He crudely and openly talks about sexual practices, even women’s vaginas, while said women are visibly uncomfortable with the conversation or attempt to change the subject. Long story short, he’s consistently disrespectful and rude.
Most of the time, no one calls him on it. People, men and women alike, (because he talks to men about vagina too), have either smiled nervously, remained silent or attempted to change the subject.
But that’s not what happened today. When Master P sat down with “The Breakfast Club” this morning, things took a left turn when Charlemagne tried to insult a Mercedes, a female rapper signed, at one time or another, to No Limit, Master P’s record company.
Here’s how it went down.
Charlemagne: I always wondered, how did you set up promotion for your projects? Because it was a time that No Limit was dropping project every week. It was a No Limit product in stores every week. Except for Mercedes, we never saw that. And I always wanted to see that because she had a fat ass pussy.
Master P: See there bruh, hold up… Don’t talk about Mercedes like that.
Charlemagne: Oh, my bad. I didn’t know. Is she family or something?
Master P: She ain’t family; but still though, with all my people man, you know how I am. But we good, man. You know what I’m saying…you know how we get down.
Charlemagne: But how were you setting it up, promotion wise?
Master P: Naw, let’s go back to this dog. Let’s respect. Because I’m not going to talk about your sister, your mom or nothing. That’s the first thing. I know you do your radio thing and I respect that; but at the same time, Mercedes is a…she a female.
Charlemagne: You right. My bad. But she did look good on that cover though.
Master P: She did look good. That’s your opinion…
An upcoming rapper walks into the room and Master P gets distracted. Then DJ Envy tries to get Master P to answer the original question. Master P obliges and then gets back to the issue of respect.
Master P: But like I said man, it’s about respect, Charlemagne. You know me and you go back.
Master P: When we talk about women– I don’t care I ain’t gon’ disrespect no hookers or nothing. Cuz I don’t do that, I’m a man. And I don’t want nobody to disrespect no people that I know. You know what I’m saying.
Aaaahhh what a breath of fresh air! With the exception of the word female…this was so perfect. I absolutely love the fact that Master P lets him know that it’s not about Mercedes being related to him, the fact that he knows her means he won’t let anyone disrespect her. And then the response got even better when P said, in fact, he wouldn’t speak about any woman in that way, regardless of what society may say about her worth or moral standards. Standards starts with self and the fact that he is a man, he won’t allow himself to disrespect women. There is only one word that can detail my reaction to this portion of the interview: YAaaaaaassssssss!
And since I grew up in and still go to church, I feel this Holy Ghost dance gif is appropriate.
Women have been degraded and disrespected for far too long in the confines of Hip Hop. But if we’re being completely honest, it’s not just Hip Hop. The medium, as it’s been known to be, is a reflection of the world in which we live, good and bad. It’s society’s fault for making us believe that women are somehow inferior and therefore worthy of this type of treatment and discussion. And if I can take it a step further, it’s not just men who disrespect women. You need work at MadameNoire for only a week to see women calling other women all the types of hoes, bitches and thots in our comment sections.
Misogyny is real and so deep, women have become the torchbearers of it.
I appreciate Master P and his response so much because it shows us how to stand up for the rights of women. (Note, that Master P was very respectful and direct in his approach.) We don’t have to smile politely or laugh it off. And it also shows that all women, no matter what they may do for a living or if they defy your personal, moral code, should be and deserve to be respected as human beings.

Looks like the battle between Jason Derulo and Jordin Sparks is far from finished. This week when Jordin had a sit down interview with Angela Yee and then The entire Breakfast Club, she spilled a bit more tea about her breakup with Derulo. Even explaining that when they were done with each other, he wouldn’t even come retrieve the car that he’d given her. And since he was being petty or irresponsible, she drove the car back to the dealership and left it in the lot…because, according to her, it was leased anyway.
Well, honey after his own extensive media tour, discussing the breakup, we should have known that Derulo wasn’t going to take that lying down. And since it’s Jordin’s turn now, the singer took to Instagram to “prove” that Jordin was lying about him leasing the car he gave to her.
He posted a bill of sale on his Instagram page with the following caption.
Notice how he made sure to @ mention Jordin and all the members of The Breakfast Club. Lol Petty Patty.
As some of you may know, only a title can undoubtedly prove ownership. So this may still be irrelevant. And many people flocked to his page to say so and suggest that’s what he post. They also let him know that he’s lame for trying to drag Jordin this way.
So what does Jordin think about all of this?
She’s basically unbothered. Right around the same time Jason posted this little piece of unvalidated evidence, she posted a series of crying laughing emojis and then liked The Shade Room’s repost of Derulo’s photo.
Are you surprised to see these two going at it like that, especially when Jordin tried to take the high road in the beginning?
Just when you thought B.O.B.’s Eggplant Friday was for your viewing pleasure alone, Sevyn Streeter came through with an Instagram post that seemed to shut all of that down. In case you missed it, or completely forgot–the hashtags told it all.
“#MCM @bobatl I found you, crowned you, turned you on…..So you know, I got what you want…. Let’s be undeniable….Here’s to 2015 Bobby #ThrowDisBack #EggplantEeeerrday #BandzAmakeMeDance #DontKillTheFun #DKTF”
That seems pretty clear right? But in case you thought she was referencing a new collaboration instead of an actual relationship, her friend Angela Yee, who just so happens to work for “The Breakfast Club” called her up this morning to get the tea.
Yee: Is that your man?
“You know what you Yee, listen here. I just decided–brought 2015 in– and just like not care. I just want to live my life. We’re taking it a day at a time.
Yee: Is that eggplant real? Cuz I see –he does a lot of penis print pictures on Instagram.
“He does put up a lot of…he only put up one though.”
Charlemagne: Tell him he got to cut that out now that he’s in a committed relationship. Now he’s being a thot.
“He is not being a thot. Leave him alone.”
Yee: So how long have y’all been dating?
“I don’t like to get into all of that.”
Envy: *sings* Sevyn likes eggplaaaant.
“I’m not the only one who likes eggplant. Eggplant is nice.”
Yee: You know these chicks are going to be coming for you now?
“Listen hère, I don”t care. I’m just having a good time. I’m living my life. I’m just trying not to kill the fun. That’s my whole vibe this year. I just want to have a good time and we have a good time together. We’re taking it a day at a time and we enjoy each other.”
Yee: Are you in love?
“Umm…I just think that we’re taking it a day at a time and I care about him very much.”
Charlemagne: There’s a lesson to be learned in this and the lesson is those penis prints that we post on Instagram clearly work because Sevyn fell for the thirst trap.
(Editor’s Note: Perhaps Charlemagne…but a word to the wise fellas- the optimal word is print. We don’t need any more raw meat on the gram.)
And then Angela Yee, seeming like a real true friend, hit the nail on the head when she said, “Now I’m going to need him to post some confirmation. That’s how you know it’s real when people post confirmation on Instagram.
We have never talked about Sheryl Underwood this much before. But ever since she revealed her secret on “The Talk” about fellow comediennes talking badly about her, everyone’s very interested. Months after her admission the streets are still whispering about it. So when Sheryl stopped by Power 105’s “The Breakfast Club” this morning, she spent a significant amount of time talking about the reason she shared the story in the first place, why she never addressed it with the women personally and the aftermath of it all.
On the initial call
I did not know that people were not checking for me like that. I did not know that I was not on chandelier status. I did not know that. Am I mad? No I’m not because some of us get along and some of us don’t. But I’m not going to let nobody knock me out. I believe that the Lord was telling me ‘Get yourself right.’ Don’t look at nobody else. Look at you. You are the foundation of what’s happening to you.
Why she never addressed it with the ladies
I kind of thought maybe I wouldn’t be able to talk to them and as you can see, I may be right.
On Rickey Smiley saying Sheryl Underwood was not blameless
When you have comedians that say Sheryl Underwood is not pure, she would come in and change the lineup. That’s not what was happening. In my contract, it would say ‘Sheryl Underwood host.’ So I would enforce my agreement, like I saw the men enforcing their agreements. All I was doing was what I learned. I watched Bernie Mac when he was alive. I watched Stevie Harvey. I watched all the men walk in and say ‘That’s not going to happen.’ I’m a boss. I just happen to be a girl. But I’m a boss. I make my money for me. I don’t have people representing me and I’m not going to have no man that I’m sleeping with representing me. Now you make your bones off of me, now you’re mad at me now you take my money and give it to someone else. So how I get everything I got, it’s me.
Me being on CBS that was God opening a door, didn’t even know a job to be had. Now I’m on it. But it’s still me. It’s me orchestrating me.
On working with these women
If I had had an agent on that call and he would have dialed or she would have dialed in early, they may or may not have told me. But I’d still be, ‘La, la, la. I think we cool. Let’s make some movies together.’ I still believe even if you don’t like me, we can still make some movies together.
I thought that what I was doing was telling a greater story was how God corrected me through you all and the last thing I probably should have said was ‘And if I ever hurt you, I’m asking for forgiveness.’
I was being called a liar but you [The Breakfast Club] got the footage saying there was a call.
Has she spoken to them since then?
Not at all. I was not lying. There was a call and things were being said about me.
Why did you do it in front of them– White people.
Why didn’t you keep it in the family. Because it wasn’t about that. It was about a secret that I had been harboring. God said to me, I can’t speak about what God says to other people. God to me, I put you here for a reason, you better do something good with it.
Will I spend my life trying to make amends? Yes, I will. But I think I’ll make amends by becoming a better person. I’ll make amends by not keeping up a comedy gang war.
Is the lawsuit real?
I can tell you this, if there’s an admission that there was a call, there were things said about me. If you still feel you must do this, use your resources in a better way.
I also understand the power of my words. We started with a secret that’s now people use for their Bible study classes.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. Sheryl probably shouldn’t have mentioned these ladies’ names. But I tend to agree with her, the greater moral behind her story is that the things people say to take you down, can be used to elevate you. And there is power in hearing your shortcomings if you know how to respond properly. And Sheryl did that.
You can watch the rest of the interview where she talks about her show “The Talk,” her take on the Bill Cosby allegations and what she thinks Black Greek Letter Organizations should be doing about the protesting of police brutality across the country. If you want to her speak specifically about all the comedienne drama, go to the 12 minute mark.
“People Put Out Albums, I’m Putting Out Personalities” Musiq/ The Husel Endures Brutal Breakfast Club Interview
When Musiq Soulchild announced that he would now be performing under the new moniker called “The Husel,” with entirely new content, most of us weren’t here for it…at all. In our confusion and duress, Musiq Soulchild, as The Husel became the subject of quite a few memes. He was trending at one point. Sadly, most people interpreted the whole alter ego as a joke.
And historically during interviews, Musiq has been a little defensive about the backlash and complete lack of understanding of his new brand.
His defensiveness and Charlemagne’s frankness made for a very interesting interview this morning on “The Breakfast Club.”
Check out a few highlights from the conversation.
Charlemagne: “I cannot respect The Husel. Musiq Soulchild is a great R&B singer…
Musiq: He is
Charlemagne: Why conform to what these kids are doing today?
Musiq: Nobody’s conforming to anything
Charlemagne: So who am I talking to Musiq or Husel?
Musiq: You’re talking to both of them.
Charlemagne: So why is Musiq introducing the world to The Husel?
Musiq: Because I feel it’s only right. I’m an artist and that’s what I’m doing right now. And I figured y’all might dig it. And if you don’t, then it ain’t for you.
C: So why rap though?
M: Again…I’m not rapping. is anybody listening? Nobody’s listening.
Yee: I did listen, it is a little singy still. It’s not necessarily like rap. I listened to the music…
M: Oh, you actually listened to it? Oh cool.Thank you very much.
C: Yeah, see me I saw the viral video and you said you were going to turn into the Husel and you was gon’ rap and I said ‘oh hell no.’
M: Next question.
C: I don’t have anymore, since you’re still singing I’m cool.
M: But if you were really like peeping it…
C: I was not interested.
There are just so many people K Michelle has fallen out with. Sooo many people. From all of her cast mates on “Love and Hip Hop,” to her ex, to Elle Varner and just about anybody else. K Michelle has a problem with just about everybody. Generational beefs, including one with Lil Kim.
The two got into on it on Twitter about a month ago when Beyoncé’s “Flawless” remix came out and K Michelle agreed that Nicki was the Queen of Rap. Of course Lil Kim’s fans came for her, calling her disrespectful and Lil Kim agreed with them.
But apparently, they have more issues.
Which is kind of sad, considering K Michelle is a well-documented fan of Lil Kim and even alleged that the two had gotten so close Lil Kim almost made her the godmother of her child.
Well, Lil Kim stopped by the Breakfast Club to clear all of that up. Here’s what she had to say about K Michelle.
That chick is a bag of pecans. Like, a trail mix. You know when you eating a trail mix and the nuts that you like, you eat and the ones that you can’t stand, you put back in the bag. She’s the bag of nuts that you put back. Like a black jelly bean. She is so nuts, you are liable to see her skipping. Who skips?
Why would I ever make her my child’s godmother? I’ve only met this woman one time, one time in person! We talked on the phone after that because she’s a fan of mine. I appreciate that. Anybody shows me love, I’m going to show them major love back.
We never had a conversation about her being my child’s godmother. I don’t know you. Why would I do that?
The chick is sour because she’s a huge fan of mine. Everybody knows that. She’s been bitter and sour because you guys had 105 Power last year. I performed with Kendrick. I was supposed to perform with K. Michelle but the sprinter got lost. It just never happened and she was sh*tty, sour, pissed.
There you have it. K Michelle’s mad. Lil Kim is over it.
