She took me under her wings. I would love to do a record with her that fit us both.

We’ll let Michelle break it down, below…
On Anita , K shared:
She took me under her wings, and she popped up to the studio. I never thought she would come to the studio and just give me advice. For her to come out her house and come to my studio session and listen to my new album and say it is absolutely amazing- I would love to do a record with her that fits us both.
Then, when quizzed on her feelings towards Australian rapper Iggy Azalea, she explained:
I just think she’s pretty. No one can knock me for my opinion. I don’t care—like the thing about it is, with her, I made the comment. I never came at this woman at all! I made a comment because I was really confused by the tone of rapping and the—it has nothing to do with color. It has everything to do with where you’re from. [Iggy] is Australian and then it turns to like I’m from South Memphis like K. Michelle. So it confuses me. Every time I have a question it starts controversy but I was really confused. And I just did not like how Forbes Magazine tried to declare this woman the face of hip hop, when there are so many amazing artists period. So my comment was very innocent. I’m not a hater; I’m just in love with music. And my comment was very real. And so many people supported me and understood it. Not just black people, white people supported me. I wish her the best of luck. She’s another female; however she gets her money and she’s successful, girl, go get your money. But personally, I don’t like that stuff. I’m not a fan.
