Although she is one third of one of the best-selling female groups of all time with Destiny’s Child, Michelle Williams does not think she’s successful just yet. This in addition to three strong solo albums and a successful run on Broadway in plays like Aida, The Color Purple, Chicago, Fela, and more.
“To be honest with you, not yet. Plus my closet doesn’t have all the shoes that I want yet,” Williams told Huffpost. “My album is titled "Journey To Freedom," and one of the things I want to get free from is — and I’m getting better at it — the opinions of other people. I don’t know if it’s just women because we nurture, and we care, and we want that back. You want people to like your music, you want people to like what you said in the interview, you want people to like everything. You don’t want them to have negative or bad opinions of you.”
Nonetheless, Williams is happy with the present: “…I just want to make sure that I wake up in the morning happy with or without a person, with or without a certain thing. First start off loving yourself, then you can be happy with everything else.”
I guess the "poor Michelle" jokes are getting to her because she has had a wonderful career thus far!
