Word on the curb is that K. Whasserface
(aka K. Michelle) is receiving the silent treatment on the airwaves of several major urban stations because of her nasty attitude.
It seems the artist formerly known as K. Michelle is killing her own career with ‘diva-like’ antics, such as ditching Radio One sponsored fan events.
Radio insider Jawn Murray spilled the tea a few days ago, stating:
