(AllHipHop News) K. Michelle has a song on her Kimberly: The People I Used to Know album titled “Kim K,” an obvious reference to reality show star Kim Kardashian. While speaking with Revolt, the R&B singer provided more commentary about the Kardashian /Jenner family’s connection to perceived cultural appropriation.
“They can be black. I can’t be black. I thought I woke up as the black woman, but I have to go to sleep as a Caucasian in order to make some money nowadays,” said K. Michelle. “Kim K and all them can take our culture – from our cornrows… you can throw cornrows to the back and put your face on top of Biggie and Pac. You can do that. If I did it, what would they do?”
She added, “They get away with being black. ‘Cornrows, it’s edgy, it’s new.’ B-tch, we been wearing cornrows when our mommas didn’t want to comb our hair. What’s next? Barrettes? Big lips? Big ass? That’s been us. African-American women are the culture.”
