Legendary director Spike Lee is filming a new series for Netflix called “She’s Gotta Have It” based off his 1986 film of the same name. He planned to use a song by Chrisette Michele called “Black Girl Magic” in the series but after her decision to perform at President Trump’s inauguration he changed his mind.
“Good Morning Folks. I Wuz Sorry To Read That “Sistuh Girl” Is Singin’ At DT’s Inauguration (And To Use His Fav Word-SAD). I Wuz Thinkin’ ’bout Using Chrisette’s Song- BLACK GIRL MAGIC In My Netflix Series SHE’S GOTTA HAVE IT…. NOT ANYMORE. And Dat’s Da Truth, Ruth,” he said in an Instagram post.
Her gospel performance went off without a hitch, but the day after, she took to her twitter to deliver a message to the fame director via her fiance.
“An open letter from my fiance to Spike Lee | And for those of you who don’t know who Basquiat is, do your research | #NoPoliticalGenius”
The message from her fiance was straight to the point “f**k you,” he wrote in an Instagram post. While Lee has yet to respond, Michele’s “R&B Divas: LA” co-star is coming to her defense, even going as far to say she wants to fight the director at the upcoming Soulja Boy/Chris Brown fight (no, seriously).
“The same day Breezy go up against Draco, I want to rumble [with] Mr. Do The Right Thing. It’s all entertainment,” Lil Mo said. If she wins, Lee will have to give Lil Mo his front-row tickets to the Knicks games and she even volunteered to sing the national anthem, although her former “R&B Divas: LA” co-star Kelly Price is reportedly tapped to do it.
