Here’s What Michelle Williams Had To Say To Those Who Say She Doesn’t ‘Look’ Depressed

By Posted on 60 2 m read

She’s beautiful, she’s newly engaged, she’s wealthy, and a member of the multi-platinum selling girl group Destiny’s Child. On the outside looking in, the average person would assume Michelle Williams has not one single care in the world. However, things aren’t always as they seem.

The R&B turned Gospel singer has been very open about her struggles with depression. In July 2018, Williams checked herself into a mental health facility, even admitting that she was suicidal during her prime years as a member of Destiny’s Child.

“I was suicidal, I was to that place where it got so dark and heavy,” she shared during a 2017 interview with The Talk.

Michelle Williams recently took to social media to reveal a statement that was made to her by someone saying, “you don’t look like you’ve been depressed to me!”

So, what does depression look like? If you ask me, it looks like all of us. In a previous post, I mentioned that sometimes I think we forget that celebrities are human too. We ALL go through the up and down emotions of life. Sometimes we’re happy, sometimes we’re sad, sometimes we’re strong, and sometimes we aren’t. Money and fame is not the medicine for any of it. Celebrities deal with real-life issues as well.

“You don’t look like you’ve been depressed to me!” Michelle Williams shared on Instagram. “I posted about this on Twitter a few weeks ago. That was a statement someone said to me. It almost made me feel guilty for doing the work to feel better, look better and BE BETTER!” She continued, “I began to wonder how long was I supposed to walk around looking like what I had been through. Now don’t get it twisted, I definitely looked and felt a mess but I made the decision to get it together!! I look at new pictures of me now vs 10 weeks ago and I truly thank God for bringing me this far. I hate to have this conversation again because my friends and family know that I’ve been here before. I just want to encourage someone to smile, get up, brush your teeth, comb your hair, shower, put some bronzer on, get a shape up, put some lotion on your ashy ankles, put something nice on.”

Michelle Williams appeared on ‘The Talk’ and opened up on her mental health issues. The now gospel singer revealed that her struggle with depression dates back to adolescent years.

“”I didn’t know until I was in my 30s what was going on,” she said. “I just thought it was growing pains, I just thought I’m turning into a woman, so I’ve been suffering since between the ages of 13 and 15. Like I said, at that age I didn’t know what to call it.” says Michelle Williams.

Williams’ depression lead her to consider suicide while Destiny’s Child hit prime success. After signing a multi-million dollar deal, Williams reached out to then manager Matthew Knowles about her mental health.

‘When I disclosed it to our manager [Mathew Knowles] at the time, bless his heart, he was like, ‘You all just signed a multi-million dollar deal. You’re about to go on tour. What do you have to be depressed about?'”

Michelle Williams continued to appear happy, bubbly and hopeful while depression consumed her thoughts. Her depression became so overbearing that the singer consider suicide as a way out.

“I was to that place where it was so dark and heavy, because sometimes you feel like, I’m the provider, I take care of people, I’m not supposed to be feeling this way,” she said, later adding, “I wanted out.”

Michelle Williams was able to continue despite her afflictions wants to end the stigma placed on mental health.  She admits that despite not knowing where the conversation would go or the results of the heavy subject, she decided to discuss her darkest times to bring light to others. As hoped for, Michelle Williams transparency in regards to her journey with depression has inspired many and ushered in important discussions on depression, suicide and mental health.

Keyshia Cole Slams Michelle Williams Super Bowl Performance

By Posted on 3 2 m read

If you followed Keyshia Cole’s timeline during the Destiny’s Child reunion during the Pepsi Halftime performance, you know that the Basketball wife is/was NOT here for Michelle Williams. If you ask me, they should be ashamed of themselves because I couldn’t tell if her mic was on. Whether it was on or not, Cole was far from pleased.

Get Informed with KC had to say about Michelle Williams, after the jump!

Keyshia Cole logged onto her Twitter account to praise Bey, but diss Michelle Williams. She tweeted:

“F*ck that shit up then Beyonce! Bad b*tch central. I think I was frightened to blink for a sec. Then Michell sung and woke my ass up from my daze! She always f*ckN the groove up.

Michelle Williams’ fans and The Beyhive weren’t feeling the comments about the former DC member and attacked Keyshia on Twitter, leaving her to defend herself.

“And yes my mom uses drugs yes it’s hard. Yes I’m from Oakland and made it damn far without influential biological parents!”

“But hey! I love y’all too! And y’all girl is WACK and always will be! #Boss!!”

Apparently, this started a while back when Michelle Williams said something about a Keyshia Cole performance. KC had mentioned it to Blogger, Necole Bitchie.

“RT @KeyshiaCole: @necolebitchie by the way The Bitch Michell said some foul shit while I was performing once. But no one recalls”

*That tweet has since been removed with KC’s timeline*

What are your thoughts on KC’s comments about Michelle Williams? Were they necessary? Were they unprofessional? Does KC had a right to voice her opinion however she wants?
