Method Man Apologizes to Destiny’s Child for When He Disrespected Them
Meth is on the latest episode of Math Hoffa's My Expert Opinion podcast. During a clip of the interview, which aired on Sunday (July 3), Method Man spoke about a dark time in his life and career when he was on Def Jam, and touched on a regretful interaction he had with Destiny's Child during the MOBO Awards in 2004.
"I saw [Destiny's Child]. So, I kinda mosey out of my seat to go say what's up to them," Method Man explained. "This is me still in my low self-esteem era. But I'm thinking, comfort zone, I'm going to go say what's up to the girls, I love them. I'm just gon' say hi. I go over to say hi to them. When I said hi, they didn't even turn around and acknowledge me. Now, my ass, in my head, with my love self-esteem is like, Oh, they just shitted on me. When in fact they didn't even hear me."
He continued: "Afterward, Rickwilder, he was gonna do the "Bootylicious" song for them. He comes over, he's talking to them. He's like, 'Y'all know Meth?' And they put they hands out to shake, and I kept my hand here and was like, 'Go head with that Hollywood shit.' To this day, that shit hurt my heart, because neither Kelly, Beyoncé or Michelle ever did any-fucking-thing to me. You know? But me being so miserable, in that fucking moment, I felt like they wasn't treating me like I should've been treated. Who am I to think that about these girls? They here to promote themselves and break records and things of that nature. And it was not about me, it was about Janet-fucking-Jackson."
"To this day, I don't think I've ever apologized for that," Meth added. "I apologize to Beyoncé. I apologize to Kelly Rowland and Michelle. Y'all did not deserve that. At all."
The Wu-Tang Clan rapper is in a much better space now. He is coming off the May release of his seventh solo album Meth Lab Season 3: The Rehab.
