Chrisette Michelle ‘Denounces’ Rick Ross
Ross was nominated for Best Hip-Hop song, but stormed out of the event when he lost to Eminem, who was not present to receive his award. Despite having worked with Ross on several occasions, including the track 'Aston Martin,' Michelle was so appalled by Ross's exit that she felt the need to "denounce" him, and hip-hop in general, on her blog.
"If this is the way hip-hop is then I denounce it," Michelle began. "Who stands off at an award show because they don't win? ... I could have sworn hip-hop was on the come up. But apparently rapping is about venting, bashing, chauvinistic pigging, and EGO. Not cool. Don't LET me start rapping."
In between plugging her new album, Michelle continued to bash Ross and hip hop in her blog post.
"From the bottom of my disappointed heart," she continued. "Hip-Hop ... Man up. I wanted to be supportive but I can't understand you. I believed in you ... But apparently you're so high you can't even see what the world needs. Is all hip-hop like that? Absolutely not! But some of it certainly is. Let me spit a few bars. I'm not that kinda hip-hop. I rep hip-hop too. But not that kinda ego trippin foolery."
