K. Michelle Pulls A Raven-Symoné: “I’m Not Black or White; I’m Actually a Mermaid”

Just when you thought everyone was trying to be black these days, an entertainer who’s actually African-American goes and pulls the “Don’t Label Me a Negro” card.

It’s hard to explain the coming out of sorts K. Michelle had a couple of nights ago when she essentially denounced R&B music in favor of embracing everything stereotypically white like “rock, country, and men who wear tight jeans.” But speaking of men, don’t expect a K-Idris Elba reunion anytime soon because the former reality star is “really not into Black men right now”  either. Here’s what she posted on Instagram announcing her new-found color-line crossing freedom:

Oh K.

Date whomever you want, please, by all means, be my guest. But if we call out black men for pitting black and white women against each other in their explanations for dating outside of their race we have to react the same when black women do it — especially when said woman follows that up with a claim that she’s a colorless mermaid. Did K. Michelle not see what happened to Raven-Symoné when she pulled a similar move on Oprah last year? God bless her mentions right now.

    As a human being, she has the right to date who she wants to. Yet, she is a black woman. To me though, there a’int nothing boring about real R&B music. To each its own, but I love chocolate. That’s just me.

      I am so sick and tired of Black folk who abandoned the genre, the one that made and shaped the game for damn near everybody–to turn around and shit on it–pardon my English. It’s like if you are bored with it, DO SOMETHING about it, why are these producers and songwriters asleep at the wheel?! White folks don’t even think something is hot until Black folks touch it, but SOME of us are always worried about chasing their dollar bills for the sake of trying to be “different.” If you don’t want to be in a box, then get out of it, make good music, we will find you, REGARDLESS of the powers that be. GTFOH with that noise. SO over these so-called artists today. I am reminded of the oldie but goodie phrase– that people who say they are bored, are just that—BORING. Next.

        I feel you. There is not a single thing boring about Toni Braxton, Monica, Anita Baker, and a list of soul/R&B singers at all. People have the right to fight for their genre and to inspire change in music. What’s the point of trying to be “different” (and bashing R&B music) when you’re not benefiting the masses of your people. Some folks who claim to want to be “different” aren’t trying to be truly different. Some of them just want to escape their cultural roots. It is the same assimilation game that some of our people have embraced for a long time. Some of our people view whiteness as superior when that isn’t the case at all. You have made a great point about cultural appropriation. Not to mention that music now is less creative and less imaginative than back then. For example, Steve Wonder made classic albums during the 1960’s, 1970’s, the 1980s, and beyond. All of his albums have unique creativity. Anita Baker, Sade, Minnie Ripperton, Roberta Flack, Chaka Khan, Peaches and Herb, the Emotions, The Dramatics, and other artists changed the game in their own special ways. We don’t have artists like this today in a high level.

          gO ON ahead and SPEAK THEIR NAMES, sadly it is true. Creativity left the building en masse. All we are left with is tiny pieces of art these days.

            You’re right Sister. That is why I listen to national and international music. Many international artists in our generation have great talent.

              True. So many gems can be found in indie music as well, from all over the world. It’s like falling into Scrooge McDuck’s vault!

          Rock music is my cultural roots too. Black people invented it. And frankly it sounds better to me so I’m not going to apologize for that being my preference. Not exclusively but that is the music I prefer.

            Everyone has a right to their preference. Black people invented Rock and there is nothing wrong with anyone loving rock too. You should never apologize for which genre of music that you love. Also, R&B is never boring to me and I enjoy R&B as well. Black people are diverse. R&B is a wonderful genre to me.

            Why the hell are you talking about rock when it has nothing to do with what everyone else is talking about. It’s almost like you mentioned it just to get an applause for being “different” lmao

    What would folks call you if they dragged up your exes & characterized you by whatever life they’re leading today? She’s his ex, not his Mrs. so why would she be a reflection on anybody but herself?

      Are you really going to sit there and tell me that whom a person chooses to mate with is not a reflection of themselves? Really? These are grown and utterly crass women, not high school sweethearts. Stop it, please lol.

      This chick is all the way bugged out and classless, and she’s not the only questionable female that Mr. Elba has been linked to. There’s another messy character that actually conceived for another man and passed off the baby as his, and Idris unwittingly went around claiming this child as his “son.” There’s an evident pattern with his exes, so yes, I do question his taste and judgement.

      Pierce Brosnan and Sean Connery have been married to the same women for decades, and project a certain debonair image that extends to their personal lives. I’m a big fan of Idris, but I’m just telling it like it is. People invest millions in movies. Don’t be mad when they want to protect their brand.

      In my opinion, Colin Salmon would have made an excellent Bond.

        Like I said. Think back to all of your exes, and choose which one of them you want to define you instead of beind defined by yourself. I’m guessing they’re all exes for a reason right?

          Also, Sean Connery committed adultery and once said that it is fine to brat on women at times. So, whites are not superior to black people. We should always respect the dignity of black people. You made a great point.

            I agree that Connery was a terrible person, but it was also a different time – he was Bond in the 60’s. I like Lester and think he was a good pick (that was Horowitz’s suggestion). I also like that he’s been married to the same woman since he was 29.

            Anyway, the current Bond is fugly I think we can all agree so it is time for a change.

              We certainly agree that there should be a new Bond in the future. Have a Blessed Day Sister.

              Daniel Craig has always been ugly. Nice build for Bond, but ugh. I remember saying that the other day and my coworker was like, “What?!” I was like, “You don’t see it??”

    I’ll make it plain and simple. If you aren’t down with your own kind, I won’t support you. Last time I checked, her fan base has a large African American following. White folks may listen to your music, but they aren’t supporting your brand. It’s seems fun to play the whole “I’m different card.” But, don’t forget those same folk that you seek to fit in with will cast your black ass out the minute you are not appealing to them anymore.

    Hell, they have already used you to make a ton of money off of your ratchet antics. And now, you want to act all high and mighty? You can try that crap somewhere else. You don’t have to claim your background. You are already making us look bad enough so you can go stand in the corner until you learn how to act like a normal person.

    I’m a mermaid? Damn fool! That’s a fictional creature. How in the world are you going to claim something that doesn’t exist?

    Date whoever you want and claim whatever you want to be. But don’t look for my support! It’s your right to do whatever you want to do and it’s my right to support whoever represents me the best.

      I’m starting to wonder if there’s some clause in some of these black celebrities’ contracts that says, “When race relations in this country are at their current worse, that is when you shall commence cooning.” smh

    It’s not about what i, or anyone else thinks, she’s going to do what she’s going to do.. She’s not a representative of me, nor the entire race.. She’s one single black woman, in a multitude of many…. Doesn’t matter what she identifies with , that’ll never change….
