Chrisette Michele: “Your Hateful Words Won’t Be My Defining Moment”
Chrisette Michele is still trying to defend her performance at President Donald Trump’s Liberty Ball this past week.
Instead of hitting up Instagram, the singer is expressing herself in a new spoken word track, ‘No Political Genius,’ which acccording to the Washington Post, further explains her stance against her critics, including both film director Spike Lee and The Roots member DJ Questlove.
“I am the black voice, inauguration bells rings. I am the black sheep disguising the scared wolf. No, I am the black elephant in the red room scared shook. White House invites me, call me their coon,” Michele says. “I am the black song Spike Lee won’t sing. I am the black voice inauguration bells ring.”
“I won’t let this defeat us,” she says. “I refuse to back down. I’ll use my art as my crown… I won’t divide now. That’s not smart now.”
