Keyshia Cole is quickly becoming the woman who’s known for putting her foot in her mouth. First there was the biracial/Black Girls Rock controversy and last night she had a few choice words for Michelle Williams during the SuperBowl halftime performance. Of course she expressed her grievances on Twitter. This is what she said…
Hmm… Now, we’ve all known since 2003, that performing is not Michelle’s forte. It’s clear that she’s not very comfortable on stage. But her voice has always been different, she’s always been maybe a half step off. But was Twitter really the venue to express this opinion, and so rudely especially when Keyshia Cole will probably never find herself on anybody’s Super Bowl stage. For better or worse, people on Twitter were too happy to tell Keyshia about herself. Check out some of the mentions she received after her reckless comment.
That illiterate hood possum comment pretty much put the nail in the coffin. Now maybe the people who had something to say about Keyshia took things a bit too far; but if you put yourself out there, especially among the dozen-playing, shade throwing community that is Black Twitter, you must prepare yourself for the worst.
It’s very clear that Keyshia wrote that in an attempt to be funny. But as a fellow singer and performer, that was something you should have turned and said to your homegirl or husband. Not something you put on Twitter, when the whole nation is watching Michelle from their couch…just like you were. Some are speculating that Keyshia made the comment to get people talking about her again. Well, if that was her intention, then mission accomplished but perhaps not in the way she was expecting.
