“Woman to Woman” singer Keyshia Cole has been making headlines quite frequently lately. Unfortunately, it isn’t her music or hew new album that has media outlets buzzing. Instead, it’s her seemingly horrible attitude. At the close of last year the singer found herself in the midst of a public dispute with California radio station KMEL 106, after she pulled out of the station’s Holiday House of Soul concert because she wasn’t pleased with the fact that she wasn’t listed as the show’s headliner. Not to mention the not so nice comments she made about Michelle Williams during the Destiny’s Child Superbowl performance. Now she’s being blasted for the less than professional behavior that she allegedly exhibited during an appearance coordinated by Detroit radio station, Hot 107.5.
According to the station’s website, Keyshia was scheduled to make an appearance at Soundboard at MotorCity Casino. The event was hosted by clothing retailer Villa and Hot 107.5 and was scheduled to begin at 2:00 pm. Fans began lining up outside at noon, hoping to get an autograph and possibly even a photo with the “Trust and Believe” singer. Unfortunately, things didn’t quite work out that way. Hip Hop Detroit says that Keyshia showed up 2.5 hours, leaving fans waiting outside in the cold, rainy weather for four hours.
In case you’re wondering what would cause a person to keep their adoring fans waiting for that extended amount of time, let me just say that it wasn’t traffic. Sources tell the station that Keyshia refused to even walk inside of the venue until she was supplied with a specific kind of water, which is actually what caused the hold up.
It seems that Keyshia’s divtatude only continue to swell as the night went on. Concergoers who attended her show at the MotorCity Hotel later that night say that offered a few unkind words to them as well. When she wasn’t receiving enough “love” from her audience, in the middle of her performance, she allegedly told the crowd:
“At this point in my career if you not rockin’ with me you can get out”
In the words of Lil Mo, who is your publicist?
