A storm of Michelle Williams fans have been pissed these past few days, with the news that they wouldn’t be seeing her video “We Break the Dawn” on BET, because they claimed, it wasn’t urban enough (and yet they play Madonna). But they will be happy to know that its all cleared up now.
Hey y'all I wanted to be clear to you guys about BET. They did not reject my video for not being urban. It was just given to the channel this week as my urban radio plan is starting to take effect. The political side that I was referring to was how things happen in stages not always at the time that artist want it, it is a process! My video actually aired on BET yesterday on BET Now which I hosted and I will be hosting another episode on Friday as well. BET is supporting me (I know you guys want to see my in rotation on the channel and I was trying to address the many questions) and you will see break the dawn on the channel in the weeks to come so keep checking back for dates."
