K. Michelle ‘Hurt’ by Grammy Snub

K. Michelle

K. Michelle returned home to VH1 for a performance and interview on Thursday. Rocking a new short hairdo, the “Love & Hip-Hop” star sat down with Carrie Keagan on “Big Morning Buzz Live” to discuss her dating life and snub at the Grammys. When nominations were announced earlier this month, the R&B singer was shut out of all categories.

“The line was too long at Western Union. I was doing a little Christmas shopping, so I didn’t make it,” she said. “But people are entitled to their opinion. This is my first album. I’m a new artist, not a self-proclaimed new artist, really a new artist. So with that being said, I just feel like there’s a lot of time for it.”

While she admits to being disappointed, she is using it as motivation. “I was a little hurt, but I truly feel like with my gift and my ability to write songs that touch people, that there’s always next year. That’s what we’ll aim for. We’ll just work even harder.”

The star of VH1′s upcoming show “No New Friends” has been dating, but she’s not so quick to give up the goods. “It’s gonna take a special man,” said K, who recently bought a house in New York. “I just don’t want to give all my goodies away to undeserving creatures.”

She also shared a tip for the ladies. “Apple cider vinegar works,” she said. “They say it’s supposed to tighten it and make it friendly.”

She didn’t leave without performing her new single “Can’t Raise a Man” off her album Rebellious Soul.

    awww #poordat…gurl look that album was mediocre as hell. It was hyped by the urban public because of who you are…you honestly think that you would get nominated and the likes of Brandy, Alicia Keys, Kelly Rowland, and Sevyn Streeter wouldn’t? girl bye on that one!

    @2bad2bme, lol the fact you said all those names and only one got nominated for a Grammy. That’s because she was a feature artist on a song. All the names you said have released albums this year and all of them didn’t match K.Michelle sales. Except alicia keys. Now everybody wants to compare Syven to the greats!!!! Gtfoh

    @Memphis901, stop getting heated and read hunty…”It Won’t Stop” was worthy of a Grammy nod unike K. Michelle’s full album. I didn’t compare Sevyn as an artist to anyone so u GTFOH! sales have nothing to do with it obviously because this hoe didn’t get nominated. Her music is for ebt listeners

    K. Michelle’s music is the definition of Real R&B, or in other words her music is very raw & authentic (Kind Of Like A Rougher Version Mary J. Blige). K has a beautiful powerful voice along with a message many women can relate too but it’s too rough for the mainstream. Now I’m not an artist, manager or producer but I am a K. Michelle fan & there is not an artist out today who is singing the pain of women. And that’s her lane…

    When you make music with the expectation of a Grammy that is a problem. Also, in my opinion, her songwriting didn’t warrant any recognition. She was blunt, but it wasn’t tasteful. Fantasia was cussing on at least 3 of her songs, but it was done well–which is why she received her 3 nominations. Just make good music and the awards will come.

    I was hesitant at first to buy K Michelle’s album off of I tunes but after getting VSOP , My Life , & Pay Bills I bought . I was surprised that I actually like it’s one of those albums where you can listen to it from start to finish . My honest opinion I feel like just because you don’t have a Grammy doesn’t make you less of an artist . I feel like the Grammy’s definitely know who they want to nominate for awards and who they don’t .

    Still throwing shade at Tamar with the “self proclaimed new artist” comment. It’s old now. Tamar hasn’t said anything about her in a while. But I heard her album and the only song I like is “Can’t Raise A Man.” Obviously the Grammys wasn’t feeling it. She needs to tone down the foul language too. Better luck next album.

    Did anybody else feel like she threw a small shot at Tamar when she said “I’m a new artist. I’m not a self-proclaimed new artist.” Being that Tamar had an album back in the day sometimes she can come off as seeing herself as a new artist. I love them both and I’m not supporting cattiness I just saw some shade there.

    @d, I caught that shade. I think it stupid cause she was just on twitter talking bout she over the need but yet still throwing shade. Tamar has been quite about for a while and K still goin. Take it she mad Tay got the nominations and she didn’t.

    @RonnieJ, I think its stupid too…because its not like K. Michelle is BRAND NEW either…she had a flop debut album just like Tamar. And…her point is? LOL!! Sad attempt at throwing shade.

    Her voice is regular and her songs are Just o.k. There are some extremely talented people in this industry who truly deserve Grammys. K Michelle is definitely not one of them.
    I can walk outside right now and find at least 3 girls who can sing circles around her and more than likely write better music also. Girl have a seat. Maybe the BET awards will throw you a bone.

    “I just don’t want to give all my goodies away to undeserving creatures,” made me laugh, though.
