K. Michelle may not want to be friends with Mimi Faust anymore , but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t feel compassion for her given all the recent drama in her life.
Monday night after Nikko Smith confessed on Love & Hip Hop Atlanta that he was indeed married, Michelle sent a heartfelt tweet to her former best friend.
“I can be a b*&ch in my delivery sometimes but for real I know your heart ur a good person and will always have mad love 4 u”
Now, K. Michelle tells HipHollywood that she knew Nikko was married and was going to break the news to Mimi.
“Actually I was flown in to break the news that Nikko was married but she wouldn’t film with me because [she] knew my mouth,” laughed K.
According to the singer/songwriter she found out via the show producers and was willing to have a heart to heart with Mimi to tell her the truth about Nikko.
“I poke fun and do jokes but at the end of the day I tweeted her because I wanted her to know you’re really not a bad person.”
During our sit-down with K. Michelle she also revealed what fans can expect from her new album, new musical “Rebellious Soul: The Musical” directed by Idris Elba, and her new Vh1 spinoff series “K. Michelle: My Life.” Check back tomorrow for those details.
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.
