Dr. Dre’s apology didn’t move Michel’le at all.
On Friday, the rapper and super-producer released a statement to the New York Times apologizing to the women he has abused in the past.
Twenty-five years ago I was a young man drinking too much and in over my head with no real structure in my life. However, none of this is an excuse for what I did. I’ve been married for 19 years and every day I’m working to be a better man for my family, seeking guidance along the way. I’m doing everything I can so I never resemble that man again.
I apologize to the women I’ve hurt. I deeply regret what I did and know that it has forever impacted all of our lives.
Michel’le isn’t buying it.
During a convo with Up All Night’s Dotun Adebayo on BBC’s 5 Live, the singer and “R&B Divas LA” star said, “I don’t really think it’s a sincere apology.”
She went on to elaborate on how she feels Dr. Dre’s apology was a PR move to promote Straight Outta Compton and to shut down any negative press his abusive past would cause.
I didn’t ask for a public apology and I think if he is going to apologize he should do it individually.
To just group us like we are nothing and nobody – I just don’t think it’s sincere. Treat us like we have names.
He’s selling a movie. I just think its good PR at the moment.
