New information has been revealed about the Chrisette Michele Inauguration performance and with it, we are wondering even more was it worth the backlash?
Initially, once it was revealed that Chrisette would be a part of the Trump Inauguration, reports stated that the star would received 750k dollars for the gig. Some of our followers stated that the amount was indeed substantial and they could not be upset with Chrisette for taking almost a million for the job.
Earlier this week. however, reports swirled that she in fact only received 250k for the performance. To put that into perspective, that is still estimated to be more than what some reality stars make for an entire season of broadcasting their lives on popular shows like Real Housewives of Atlanta and the Love and Hip Hop Franchise.
Now, more information has been revealed and it looks like Chrisette may not have even gotten that much.
During a guest appearance on the The Wendy Williams show, television host Marc Lamont Hill disputed 250k as well.
According to Hill, he spoke to Chrisette's team and she received considerably less than 250,000 for the gig. Watch the clip below.
Chrisette has been criticized by Spike Lee, Questlove, and all of black twitter according to her in the days since the inauguration. Additionally, she did not get to meet Donald Trump. We wonder if she still thinks it was worth it.
