When The Checks Stop Coming In: Michelle Williams Reduced To Doing Radio…In The U.K.???

- By Bossip Staff

Former Destiny’s Child member Michelle Williams hasn’t really done a whole lot since her days kicking it with Bey Bey and Kelly Rowland, but when the going gets tough, the tough get going.

The Illinois-bred vocalist is hosting the top-rated Choice FM morning show with British talent Martin Jay throughout the month of December and into early 2011.

Williams began her stint on Choice FM on Dec. 1, filling in for Jay’s regular co-host Lucy Ambache, who is out on maternity leave.

The Grammy-winning singer just finished a run on BBC’s ‘Strictly Come Dancing,’ the show that ABC’s ‘Dancing with the Stars’ is modeled after.

Hey, get it how you can pimpin’. It’s a recession out here every dollar counts, but coming from Grammy’s and world tours, a radio gig and a D-list dancing show has got to feel like a downgrade. We’re just saying….

    Lol, l heard her on the radio over the internet. I thought she was an american dj working in the uk. I was shock when they called kelly over the phone, I was like…..what? Is this Michelle, from Destinys child? A girl gotta do what a girl gotta do. Somebody has to pay the bills.

      Didn’t she not want to work with Matt anymore?

      Everyone talks ish about the Knowles family, but these girls should be glad that they even got THAT much!

      Fom the loooks of things after they fire Matty.

      They obviously would have never been able to do it alone.

    What’s wrong with doing radio to promote you gigs?
    Everybody does it!

    • Deedee_404

      Since the money is sickeningly BETTER in the U.K. why be on the radio here when you can get twice the cash overseas?

    LoVe MicheLLe…this is Krazy…all the Girls from DC even the Old ones are DoiNg BaD…except BeyBey…I feel for them….smh

  • Know the facts

    First and far most this was a smart move. The UK is where its cracking right now because artists are still generating sales overseas. This was also a smart move because the UK currency has a higher value than the american dollar.

    Michelle keep growing learning investing in US Treasury bonds, Segrams and natural resources. Dont let your man manage you or your money bank a couple million more. If you must come back to the US teach music at university you will be fine. THATS WHAT THE SMART ONES DID! Ain’t nobody making money in gospel music but the preacher!

  • Gypsy

    Don’t be a fool, people from the UK come here to perform because Americans love people from the UK.
    Americans go to the UK to perform because the British love American performers and they will pay a lot, plus they will treat you like a princess.

  • bossip is the worst - need to stay way from this site.

    You’re not saying anything. You act like the woman is cleaning the streets of NYC while living under a bridge eating cat food out of the can. There is nothing wrong with hosting a radio show. You guys are truly @$$holes. You probably got off just. I am not a Michelle fan but damn.

  • confidently_ugly

    nothing wrong with this

  • Deedee_404

    Only in America do you get rich and STOP working. Just because she is pursuing other interests does not mean she is broke. Maybe she wanted to do something that was interesting and fun that is NOT making albums. Let’s be real, if most of us had her kind of money and could do soemthing else, we likely would to. I am pretty certain that Bono, Oprah and Wayne Newton don’t do radio because they need the money. Its something they wanted to try.

  • boobie me

    She did our version of ‘dancing with the stars’ and i want you all to know that this woman is a robot because she cannot bend. she is stiff and very very tiny. i did not like her look and she disappointed the British public with her luck of dancing ability

  • ThickLikeCornbread

    Make tht XMas money Hunney!!!!

  • juliemango

    Well michelle cant expect bey to pay her bills 4 her!!!

  • Gigglegal215

    At least she is making her money respectably. No need to compromise her beliefs in order to make a living.

  • shake it

    she eating so its all good

  • NYC Gal

    At least she ain’t got to be on the arms of an extremely old white man.

  • c'mon now

    Kelly, good work. While you’re making money, let the broke commentors comment. What else do they do all day?

    • JES$

      That’s Michelle

  • aya sonjohn

    She is working.. Its a shame that we look down upon folks who are working, whether its a fastfood restaurant or picking up trash. A job is a Job!!!! U gotta eat…

  • Just sayin'

    The woman is working & you called that “reduced”. @ least she’s not f*ckin’ for tracks. lol.

  • http://Choice-fmfan Chantelly

    Wow, u lot are deep. I listen to choice-fm daily and she is too funny, tops off to her. She disappeared for a second over here and it’s nice to here her. Nobody really checked for her over here, and it’s done a lot fir her has been career. At the end of the day, she is still got money in the bank.

  • Unico

    Michelle was always the weakest addition to Destiny’s Child. It is a wonder how she was chosen and even remained in the group that long without the singing and dancing ability like Beyonce and Kelly.

    She needs to stop with the cameos and start working on improving her performance.


    What difference does it make what’s she’s doing for a career now. The bills have to get paid one way or the other, at least she’s not on the street corner with a sign saying she will sing for money! We all know she would go how penniless.

  • Seriously

    What is hilarious is that people in America have NO CONCEPT of the world outside of here. Just because some group or singer doesn’t make it here, there are many other countries and continents where they can sustain their fame – and they do. Apparently, you’ve never traveled outside of the country. Oh, and Canada doesn’t count.
