Michelle Williams confidently took the stage on The Masked Singer.
This was a moment because she has always been viewed as the least favorite singer in the girl’s group, Destiny’s Child. But the show gave her an opportunity to flex her vocals to the world without revealing her identity and she killed it.
The 40-year-old spoke to Billboard and admitted how much people sleeping on her impacted her. “I’ve done a lot of gospel, so I’m kind of insecure because mainstream [fans] don’t know my voice. And sometimes social media… it’s bad when you read the comments. I like engaging with people on social media. I don’t want to not talk to the people that are being gracious all because there are some mean ones out there. But sometimes before you get to the nice ones you have to get through a couple mean ones.”
She continued, “Apparently I don’t have the most commercially appealing voice or whatever. People have their favorites, but vocally I was not a favorite in the group, and that stuck with me.”
Michelle Williams suffered massive trolling on the Internet in 2014. The hashtag #PoorMichelle was trending which criticized her career. But her clap back was on point: #PoorMichelle that’s not what my accountant said!”
