*When R&B songstress K. Michelle dropped her latest single “Kim K,” many fans gave it the side-eye because she’s showering more unnecessary attention onto the reality TV star.

The single dropped last week, ahead of the release of her fourth studio album, Kimberly: The People I Used to Know. As BET noted, the soulstress keeps it 100 on the track as she addresses society’s hypocrisy that won’t let Black women be great but allows women like Kim Kardashian to flourish and profit from being “down” with black culture.

“Wish I could be a Kardashian, so I could be Black,” K. Michelle croons. “They ask if it’s real, I say it’s real fat/Don’t get caught up in facts, ‘cause ain’t s**t real/And ain’t s**t funny.”

Several bloggers and Kardashian fans have criticized the singer because they feel the song is shading the famous socialite. But K. Michelle fired back via Twitter on Monday (Dec. 4), explaining the context behind the song.

“I see some blogs trying to make My song ‘Kim K’ messy, lord if u only knew how fly I think she is!” she wrote. “The statement behind the song is black women are rarely given credit for our cultural trends and flyness.”
