K. Michelle Performs ‘Can’t Raise a Man’ on ‘Arsenio’

K. Michelle

Before she hits the road with Robin Thicke on Thursday, K. Michelle stopped by “Arsenio” last night for a performance and brief interview.

The Memphis songstress shared her love for country music. “I actually grew up loving country music,” she said. “I play classical piano. I play guitar. And my parents, they put me in a closet. It wasn’t child abuse, don’t get scared. They put me in a closet and it was the biggest closet in the house and I would just sing to the top of my lungs.”

The self-described “ghetto girl with table manners” revealed that she can yodel (“Don’t ask. I ain’t gon’ do it”) and how her vocal coach introduced her to other genres.

“The first tape that I ever got was The Judds,” she said. “I saw The Judds, I loved The Judds, [my vocal coach] taught me how to yodel, and then I got a scholarship to Florida A&M University.”

K, who will star in her own VH1 series “No New Friends,” also defended her behavior on “Love & Hip Hop.” “I don’t think it’s fair at all because you don’t know me,” she said. “You would react the same way as me to a lot of those situations. I’m just bold enough to do it in your face and I can. Those reactions from those blogs and everything, I make their hits go up, so they should thank me or maybe even send me a check.”

She also shut down the stage with a rousing performance of her latest single “Can’t Raise a Man.”

    @ShecanHaveyou, Dont act like Tamar is the first female R&B artist to rock a blonde bob… lets not forget Beyonce, Keri Hilson, Keyshia Cole, and Rihanna have all wore the blonde bob. So in the words of Tamar “Have several seats”.

    The obsession that this woman has with Tamar Braxton is REAL! She straight up copied her hairstyle from the Grammys.



    Tony Get it Right Reply:

    @TamartianBrigade, you act as if Tamar was the first bitch to get a Bob… And actually K.Michelle has worn a bob plenty of times. She wore it on the reunion last year and also on her tour… No one is obsessed with Tamar but you. If you didn’t have your head so far up her ass you would have not even made that ignorant non- factual comment….

    @TamartianBrigade, get your facts together. This is not the first time K. Michelle has worn a blonde bob. In all actuality Tamar copied K. Michelle. Didnt K. Michelle have a blonde bob on the Love and Hip Hop Reunion show? Exactly. Stop trying to come for K. just because u admire Tamar. A Tamar fan can NEVER call another artist out for copying hairstyles when Tamar has copied Beyonce and Mariah Carey’s signature blonde hair. GOODBYE!
