And I can’t keep on allowing people to tell me no because I’m black, it’s just not right. I would much rather turn in two R&B albums and be done and figure out how to fight this battle because musically I don’t play country, I am country. I had a scholarship for yodeling so I am country music, this isn’t, “I popped up one morning and decided I was gonna be a country artist” or something. And I love their songwriting and I see that, and there’s been, what, three black people to ever have No. There’s not a black woman who’s been able to do that so for me why wouldn’t I want to fight that? I’m the type of person I feel like is known for controversy but being honest about the truth and what’s going on.
I have to be honest to myself and that is saying what I’m great at: my tone, how I sing, everything is country.
And I think I’m a very fair writer because I also write about my fucked up issues. I have a record called “Kim K” that speaks kinda about what’s going on now, like I wish I could be a Kardashian so I could be black. So I speak about everything, not just certain people and certain things, anything around me I write about.
On “Build a Man,” you talk about your relationship with R.
And you find a commonality in the sense that people don’t believe you.
So do you believe that there’s truth to these allegations? I do believe that in every piece of the story there’s something that is true and I’ve learned so much from my mentor and it’s just the right time and place to say things, to do it properly so that the people you’re trying to help are actually helped instead of taunted so I’ll be speaking more about it but I’ll be doing it in the right way. This is the longest I’ve gone without putting out music and it kinda has people freaking out, kinda over-examining things and things like that.
“I always say people use us for some things: men might use us for our hot pockets, women might use us just to be cool with us or whatever,” says the singer, born Kimberly Pate.
“But whatever the person that’s using you, you should use them to learn something.”For K.
I don’t know how to write about anything else other than what my life is about.The album shows me and all my bipolar-ness so it really shows that and I hit on every single emotion of being a woman and being a growing woman. I was saying on that, it was like I wanted to put out some stuff…I think labels overthink, it’s a great thing for my label that they overthink some things and they want you to keep on doing different things. I put out music all the time so when you’re taking your time and trying to make things perfect, my fans are suffering for music.So it has, even for a man, a lot of things you can relate to you, a lot of life issues this time not just heartbreak but life in general. So I’m very excited about it because I’m taking my time. So that was just me being, “If you don’t hurry up, I’m gonna make this music into a mixtape.” [Laughs]Is the plan to put out this music over the next two years or are you envisioning kind of a shorter timeline? I actually want to do both of these albums, this one at this side of the year and another one at the other side of the year—at the beginning though.Michelle, nothing is off limits, including past relationships -- she sang about her alleged ill-fated tryst with Idris Elba on 2014’s “Maybe I Should Call” and “controlling” relationship with R.Kelly on “Build a Man.” That honesty carries over to , one of two albums she has left on her contract with Atlantic Records. A country album, as well as a possible return to television after she announced her departure after the third season of ? But that is a record that is so light and when you catch a vibe on something, it just feels good. The direction of the album is actually, I actually am talking about a lot of people -- not bashing them, but speaking on some people who have been influential in my life, whether it was for the good or the bad. So this is just the fun song going out, but I can honestly say this is my best vocal album and you will get those in ballads like “Bring On Love” and “No Not You.” That speaks to who I am and the person and the woman that I’ve become.
