As promised, here’s more from B. Scott and K. Michelle’s sit-down interview that took place in Los Angeles earlier this month.
In this clip, watch as K. Michelle gets real candid about her relationship with Idris Elba.
Check out a few excerpts:
On her relationship with Idris Elba and the extreme backlash from Black women:
“Yes, and I didn’t go into details about it out of respect for him.
I thought it was disgusting, the backlash that I got from black women. My whole career, the women that I fight for have been the women that attack me. And, it’s crazy — because when I told about my abuse, Black women attacked me. And they said I was a liar. And then when the reports came out, [they’d say] ’oh, I always believed you!’ That doesn’t heal that scar that you called me a liar for two years and I’m trying to be a role model.
So, when it got to Idris, I’m once again [getting attacked]. We’d probably would still even be close friends, but I came out — and it wasn’t for no album sales because I write about every man I date. And he knew that. He even said that to me, in my face! ‘You write about every man,’ [he said]. And I said ‘Yeah, I’ma write about you too. YOU determine the song. You determine if it’s good, you determine if it’s bad.’
We parted on mutual terms, so I never bashed have him and I never will. When I sang about what it was — it was Black women. They were @ing him, and were like ‘Ew, she’s not good enough for you.’ It was bad, they’d [say things] like ‘Ew, he would never,’ or ‘Ew, why are you dating someone like that?’
Look, I’m a very educated woman. You don’t know how I am behind closed doors. You don’t know that through everything with this man, through his father passing — I was there. I was the woman. I was strong. I didn’t know — I wasn’t breaking up a home — I didn’t know about that or anything. But, instead of women being like ‘Wow, our idol, you know, the man we put on this pedestal is human!’ they automatically, as always, attack the woman. They say ‘Oh, you’re a home wrecker! Oh, you’re lying! This never happened,’ like I lied about an 8-month relationship.
On her and Idris’ sex life:
It was great sex, I think because of the passion. The passion of the friendship, more than anything. Me, I’m really mental with sex…like, you could have a big ding-a-ling or something and it doesn’t [do it for me]. You can have this, you can have that, but it has to be here [mental].
On what it’s like dating someone so fine:
He’s normal to me. I don’t see that. That was one of my best friends. He has the same issues as every other man.
On whether or not they’ll reconcile and what she learned from their relationship:
No no no, I think that was God showing me to get away from basketball players and that I needed a grown man. I think there’s a reason and a season for that. I dated the same type of man and I never would’ve dated a man [like Idris]. I told him, I said his pants were too tight and his accent was funny. Women went crazy [for him], but I wasn’t attracted. [But] just the demeanor of how a man is supposed to handle a woman and not like a basketball player dribbling a woman like a ball — that showed me. That was the purpose.
