To promote her new song, “Rick James” (you read right), Keyshia Cole stopped by The Breakfast Club to give a very interesting interview about everything that has gone on with her marriage (she and her husband are on social media beefing terms), her issues with Michelle Williams and Beyoncé (including why she was so critical of “Bow Down”), her drama with her sister Neffie and her mom (they no longer speak), and more. Here’s what stood out:

Her Statements About Beyoncé:

“I was not hating on Beyoncé. No, it was not directed at all as hate. I’ve seen Beyonce a few times. She’s always a very sweet girl. To me, that just wasn’t her, her thing you know what I mean? But I don’t know. Like dude said, she switched it up or something. So, I don’t know, you know? But that’s just not what I know of her so it kinda hurt my feelings a little bit.”

Her Issues With Michelle Williams And Working Things Out:

“Well she stared that you know what I mean? She started that and it really hurt my feelings too because she’s Christian and she’s a church girl and all of this but yet we talk on the phone and you say you apologize for taking a Tweet down that you said about me in the first place. You know what I’m saying? And I mean, it just felt like everybody just jumped on me ‘cuz I’m from Oakland, I’m the ghetto chick and I’m always starting everything when in actuality I just say how I feel. You know what I’m saying and I don’t feel like I was starting nothing. But I was just getting her back for what she said to me. It was just like, I felt real like, everybody going in on me. You got ol boy, the Hamburgler up here talking about me. The-Dream [laughs]. You got Rico Love up here going in on me, but everybody was defending her. But in actuality she called me and apologized and said she never should have tweeted that or whatever. She called me and apologized and I said ‘Well next time you get a chance, address it, because you got people going in on me and that ain’t even the case.’ She said, I was at the Soul Train Awards and she was like, ‘I ain’t even know you could use Auto-tune at the Soul Train Awards, what’s that about?’ It’s cool. It’s over.

The State Of Her Marriage:

“I just, you know what I mean, I just wanna put my music out. And just, you know, sit in my own craziness. You know what I’m saying? And just chill out for a minute. Like, I don’t even really know what I wanna do right now. I don’t want to talk about it. I don’t really want go into it.”

Where They Are Now:

“We co-parent. He’s a great father though. Exactly, 8:30 come take DJ to school every morning and I pick him up.”

On Thinking Her Husband, An NBA Player, Wouldn’t Cheat:

“I did. I really did. I believed in that, you know what I mean? And on top of that, we just had so much of a great relationship. I felt like, I felt like it wouldn’t be possible.”

If They Can Work Things Out:

“I’d just rather avoid questions like that for my son’s sake. We’ll know it as the time goes by whats going to happen. You know? This we’re talking about now involves a child…I want the situation to play out. I just want to protect my son. I’ll never be the kind of woman who–No matter how much I dislike this man, it will never be to the point where he can’t see his son. Period.”

If She Can Work Out Issues With Neffie And Frankie:

“No. I mean, it’s just chaos and I don’t want that around him [son Daniel]. I have to protect him from that type of chaos. I haven’t even spoke to my mom, Frankie, in a minute. They don’t have my number. It’s just a respect thing for one. Last time I had my mom around I sent her through rehab and I tried to help her and I spent a lot of money…and she just took it way too far, yelling in my house. Luckily my child was asleep. After that I was like, ‘Naw.’ You gotta make an adult decision to move that out…I just need…not right now.”

Growing Up:

“I’ve grown a lot. I’m 30 years old. Ain’t the same way I used to do it. Take my anger out and just go ahead and approach you and do something about it.That ain’t the way I do it no more. You know? I’m a mother.You know what I mean? Whatever I do from here on out, I want my son to be proud of. Regardless of what it is.”

Putting All Her Business On Social Media:

“Well I have feelings, you know what I’m saying? I guess sometimes I have to put my phone down like ‘yo, I need to put my phone down because I’m about to go in.’ But I’m chillin’.”

She addressed quite a bit. Check out her full interview and Keyshia’s answer to the question of whether or not she’s really happy at the point and difficult time in her life.
