Destiny's Child member Michelle Williams has opened up about her time with the group, saying that her not having a commercially appealing voice filled her with insecurities.
"Sometimes, social media… it's bad when you read the comments. I like engaging with people on social media. I don't want to not talk to the people that are being gracious all because there are some mean ones out there," she said during an interview following her unmasking on The Masked Singer.
"But sometimes before you get to the nice ones you have to get through a couple mean ones. Apparently, I don't have the most commercially appealing voice or whatever. People have their favorites, but vocally I was not a favorite in the group, and that stuck with me."
Michelle says that despite the negative feedback, she refuses to conform:
"It's still a struggle. I'm in a theater show as we speak, and you want to make sure… I hope the people like it. That's what we signed up for — people are buying their tickets, and you want to make sure they're pleased so they'll continue to support you on the next move you do. At the same time, you have to go up there and be you, not bend or conform… no, do it the way God gave it to you. Be who you are."
