Chrisette Michele joined alleged musicians 3 Doors Down and “Toby Keith” for the ill-attended Trump inauguration concert last week, a booking decision she still seems to be rationalizing these days. While joining the crew of the Breakfast Club this morning, Michele claimed that her motivation was simple: visibility.
During the 40-minute interview, Michele stated:
“I needed them to see us. I needed them to see what we have to say, what we look like, how we talk. With the entire campaign experience, I think that many of us were wondering, who is he talking to? I had turned off my phone as soon as I decided to do it. I knew that people wouldn’t understand. I refer to myself as a wolf in sheep’s clothing, but really, I was a sheep in wolf’s clothing. I was as afraid as we all are right now, knowing that I had to put on some kind of armor. I call it the armor of god. That’s why I went there and sang gospel.”
