Technical problems forced singer to cancel appearance.
K. Michelle missed her gig at Atlanta radio station V103’s 22nd Annual For Sisters Only concert over the weekend because of “technical difficulties,” the singer says. Michelle was billed to hit the same stage as rival Tamar Braxton but was absent at showtime. The former Love & Hip Hop Atlanta star insisted that pulling out of the show had nothing to do with their ongoing feud. "I couldn’t hit the stage today at #FSO due to technical issues with my band," she tweeted Saturday (Sept. 14). "I am working with my @V103Atlanta family now and we will announce something VERY SPECIAL! Very soon."
The "V.S.O.P." singer and Braxton fell out over wigs (Braxton accused Michelle of jacking her look), and have been going at it ever since. As of last week, Braxton trampled Michelle’s record for the year’s highest-selling female R&B album by moving 114,000 copies of her Love & War release, compared to Michelle's seven-day total of 72,000. Ironically, Michelle offered an olive branch in the conflict when she bought a copy of Braxton's album and encouraged fans to do the same.
Unfortunately, the sales figures only added to their rift. Michelle accused Braxton of buying copies of her own music, to which the new mom replied, “Don’t worry about my album sales, worry about finding ur original face! My sales are REAL, nothing political ALL HARD WORK. Humble yourself! You bout [sic] SEVERAL of those albums. I sold over a 100,000 albums 2, just 4 days after u. SHE is not winning like SHE thinks.
“Now stop coming for me. There’s enough room for everybody! Just shut up and sing! Leave me alone! Damn,” Braxton added.
Of course that sparked a response from K. Michelle, who took to her Twitter page in retaliation.
The For Sisters Only concert would have been an opportunity for the ladies to settle their difference in person. Guess we'll have to wait on that.
