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!
Netflix’s ‘Step Sisters’ Is ‘Bring It On’ … But Way More Woke!
Netflix is getting ready to “Bring It On” … in more ways than one. The streaming service’s new flick Step Sisters is reminiscent of the 90s dance film, but delves deeper into racial themes like cultural appropriation, tokenization and interracial dating.
In the film Megalyn Echikunwoke (Arrow) plays the president of a black sorority who is tasked with teaching one of the campus’ white sororities how to step for a charity competition. At first glimpse the film seems to be stepping into a can of worms — and had folks on Twitter up in arms, but the creators and cast told HipHollywood it isn’t about cultural appropriation but instead cultural exchange.
“There’s a strong political message, and there’s a lot of racial content,” said Nia Jervier. “But I think that the pill that may be difficult to swallow is dipped in honey, because it’s funny.”
What also helps is that producer/writers like Lena Waithe (Masters of None), Chuck Hayward (Dear White People) and Ben Cory Jones (Underground) are behind the project – so you know it’s woke.
“At the end of the day, Jamila the lead character in our minds she’s reaching over to show them a part of our culture. It doesn’t dilute our culture,” said Jones. ” And I love that we can take stepping and evolve that into issues of race and culture.”
Step Sisters begins streaming on Netflix January 20th.
