Capitol records. I was quiet for a few days… I go into the studio and literally poured out my heart and soul and the label decides to walk away from me?” she said. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ She also mentioned how the backlash for performing at Trump’s Inaugural Ball, caused a drastic shift in her image. "I went from someone being revered and loved to facing putting out an album in the worst climate of my musical career.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ “I know God. He was kind enough to soften the blow. I promise you, I felt Him cover me like a blanket,” she said. “I told Him I was out of control. I told Him I was having thoughts about leaving and not finishing all He’s called me to. He listened.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ She also revealed that she had had a miscarriage. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ “Something came out of me. It was my child. The one my love and I worked so hard on,” she said. “I never knew I could allow myself to be so broken that my physical body would break down. “Just because I had a negative experience didn’t mean I had to become negative and broken. When I lost my child I knew that it was time for me to become a StrongBlackWoman.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Through learning to love herself and practicing yoga, the songstress was able to find her center again. “With every asana and meditation I found my new focus. It was love,” she said. “It was understanding. It was Peace. I could be the catalyst for peace because I now have a deep understanding for what the exact opposite of peace looks like.”

She discusses whether or not she really performed for $750,000 and all of the backlash she has been receiving. She even says that after being disowned by her family, she didn’t even get to meet the president. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “I didn’t even think to say no. It didn’t cross my mind,” said Chrisette. “The first thing I thought was that I have an opportunity to get in front of these people who don’t seem to understand who they’re talking to and show them what we look like. I felt automatically committed to making sure that I stood up for the women who’ve felt disrespected and the minorities who felt disrespected, communities that felt that they weren’t being heard or understood. I thought that it was almost my responsibility to not just say yes but to say yes with purpose.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ She then addressed the rumors that she performed for $750k. “We sent in an offer for how much we charge and they said, ‘Well we don’t have that,’ and the first thing I thought then was how I sang for Barack and Michelle Obama free of charge. This is not a money thing,” she told Billboard. When asked if she performed for Trump for free, she replied, “No, I didn’t perform for free. One, it wasn’t $750,000, but my manager did negotiate my contract.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Chrisette Michele also mentions to Billboard that she was frustrated that she never got to even meet DonaldTrump, despite all the backlash she received online and from her own family. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Originally I was supposed to perform directly after his first speech, and I had done that with Barack Obama before, so I was used to that kind of experience. And the woman who organized the event came and told me, “Now you’re going to go first and he’s going to go after you.” I looked her in the eye and said, “My family has disowned me.

Baked, Memes, and Chef: Baker Admits To Being Asked To Copy President Obama's Inauguration Cake @balleralert Baker Admits To Being Asked To Copy President Obama’s Inauguration Cake - blogged by @eleven8 - ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Celebrity pastry chef & FoodNetwork personality, DuffGoldman, took to social media Friday night to call out DonaldTrump’s team for ripping him off. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to Goldman, he designed the cake for PresidentObama’s inaugural ball 4 years ago, however he was shocked to see an exact replica was used for Trump’s ball Friday night. Even more shocked since he’s not the person who baked that cake. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ButtercreamBakeshop fesses up to copying Goldman’s cake, however they say it wasn’t their choice. "While we most love creating original designs, when we are asked to replicate someone else's work we are thrilled when it is a masterpiece like this one,” they said in a statement. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The cake fiasco lands on the heels of Donald Trump’s Twitter header, which happens to be a photo taken from Obama’s inauguration, Trump’s inauguration speech which included an excerpt from DarkKnightRises and of course, MelaniaTrump plagiarizing MichelleObama’s speech. I can only imagine what else will be copied.
