Michelle Williams Says No More Destiny’s Child



Michelle Williams says the world may have seen the last of Destiny’s Child at Super Bowl XVLII.

HipHollywood caught up with Michelle, who is currently starring in the Tony Award-winning play Fela, and asked her if we should be expecting more music from the trio of ladies. “As far as Destiny’s Child is concerned I think you’ve seen the last of us for a long time when we did the Super Bowl,” she explained.

But don’t think Michelle’s revelation has anything to do with the criticism she received from people like Keyshia Cole following her Super Bowl performance. Michelle has yet to respond to Cole’s tweets directly, and told us she has no reaction any comments about her performance. “No reaction … the next day came. I was too busy celebrating with my girls and just being absolutely excited about being able to do what I love to do.”

And these days, the singer’s love is acting. Williams is currently on tour with Fela playing Sandra Isador and says she lept at the opportunity to play the part. Check it out!


Exclusive: The Bullet Scars That Will Forever Haunt Sheryl Lee Ralph’s Son, Etienne Maurice



Sheryl Lee Ralph shared a graphic photo on Instagram earlier this week of her son, Etienne Maurice, laying in a hospital bed bandaged up from bullet wounds. The purpose of the image was to be yet another voice calling to end gun violence.

On Wednesday, students across the country walked out of class to protest against gun violence, something that hit home for Ralph four years ago. “This mother wants #gunreform now! #guncontrol now,” she wrote.

It was during a night out in West Philadelphia that Ralph’s then 22-year-old child was robbed at gunpoint and shot three times; twice in the leg and one which grazed his forehead.

So as Ralph joined Wednesday’s national conversation about gun laws, HipHollywood talked exclusively with Etienne who shared exactly what went down the night a gun could have taken his life for good.

“I was shot four years ago, November 9 … I was black out drunk. The next thing I know I remember I woke up in the hospital, doctor said I had two bullet holes in my leg and a grazed bullet hole above my eyebrow.”

Maurice, who was robbed for his iPhone and his wallet, went on to tell us that this is something that he is reminded of constantly. “Having been shot is something that I carry with me every day. I still have numbness at the bottom of my leg from the nerve damage.”

And while he will always remember how he felt knowing his life almost ended, Etienne had a hard time fathoming how his famous mother felt. “We had the conversation about it last week and she said she peed on herself,” he told us.

For Maurice, he’s proud to see young children use their voices to make change. “There’s so many angles where we can talk about gun violence and how it’s effecting different communities,” he said. “Gun reform needs to take place now.”

Since that night, he hasn’t picked up a drink and has been now sober for four years. As for the suspects, a father-son duo, they are behind bars for attempted man slaughter.
