Snoop Dogg recently posted a video blasting the “jiggaboos” who would “sellout” by performing at Donald Trump’s Inauguration, well it looks like Chrisette Michele didn’t get the memo because she is allegedly slated to perform!
The NY Daily News is reporting that the singer reached an agreement stating that she would perform as long as she could perform an R&B piece.
Apparently the Grammy winner and her entourage decided to keep the news under wraps to avoid the backlash.
via The NY Daily News:
We’re told that the deal was reached a week ago, but has been kept “a big secret” because Michelle’s camp feared the seven days of criticism that would surely lead up the the divisive President-elect’s big day. They became especially concerned when Jennifer Holliday, who’d committed to performing for PEOTUS last week, withdrew amidst heavy pressure on Monday, citing “a lapse of judgment.”
Our insiders say that inauguration organizers first reached out to Michele’s team asking her to perform the song “Intentional” with singers Travis Greene, Jonathan McReynolds, and Tye Tribbett — the same trio with whom she did that tune on BET’s “Celebration of Gospel” broadcast one year ago. We’re told that plan fell apart when at least two of those three singers declined the offer. But, according to our sources, Michelle agreed to sing for the Prez so long as she could perform an R&B set.
Welp this is what Black Twitter had to say:
Oop! Lets chat below!
