Kandi Burruss On Gospel Song Criticism: ‘It Made Me Feel Really Bad’

By  |  331 Comments


Kandi Burruss said the criticism she received for recording a gospel record made her feel bad.


Last month, R&B Recording artist Kandi Burruss (formerly of Xscape) was slammed for recording a gospel record. Incase you haven’t been in the loop of Burrus’ recent endeavors, she is a co-star of the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” television show, talk show host of the “Kandi Koated Nights” adult talk radio show, and the owner of an adult toy line named Bedroom Kandi.

Burruss was encouraged by her music manager to pause wedding plans and get back into music. What her manager didn’t know is that the singer  felt compelled to write and record a gospel song. Burruss took to her Facebook page to explain why she’d chosen to record the song. “I knew when I decided to do it that I would be criticized. That’s to be expected. I’m a single mom that had a child out of wedlock, I speak openly about s*x on #KandiKoatedNights, I have #BedroomKandi, etc… I’m very honest about who I am, ” she wrote.

In a recent interview conducted by The Young, Black, and Fabulous, Burruss revealed she was hurt by the criticism she received for recording the record. She also discussed suing Kim Zolciak and other things. View the interview below:

On the controversy over her gospel single:

At times it made me feel really bad. But other times, I was just like, you know, I’ve gotten use to people having things to say. I was just doing what’s true to me. I would like to do more Gospel, but at the same time, I don’t think people are ready for that from me.

On if she’s returning to “Real Housewives of Atlanta” for another season:

You know what, this year I have to say, [this season] was a lot better. I mean we didn’t have drama, it was more funny stuff to me. When Kim left the at the top of the season, it actually made things better for the rest of us. We had little things here and there, but it was cool. I’m not totally done with “Real Housewives”, but at the same time I’m more excited for “Kandi Factory”. Just because it’s not about drama at all. It’s about the music and me helping people. And I’m executive producer on that, so it’s a little different.

On why she couldn’t discuss lawsuit against Kim Zolciak on BRAVO networkWell, [producers] don’t want me to sue her.  You know when you’re on a show together, they say you’re not suppose to sue each other. But what I’m suing her for has nothing to do with the show.

Do you believe Kandi Burruss should/should not record gospel music?

    She should absolutely record gospel music! It kills me that there are so many people casting stones, forgetting the glass house they live in or once lived in. Who are we to judge! She is obviously recording gospel because she has a relationship with God and she’s a great song writer. There’s no real money in gospel, so thats definitely not the motive. Maybe this is her way of saying thanks to God for the many blessings He’s given her. Oh, and lets not forget that God created SEX and Kandi.

      On a side note we set the bar for ourselves so low. We shouldn’t expect perfection but we should strive to live better and better isn’t all about $$$

    Gospel is praise to GOD not to people so people’s comments are judging what is for GOD
    GOD gave her talent and she is using it
    At least she is not molesting children or stealing church money

    In the World, and, In God are two different worlds. Love One and hate the other. Choice.
    Is knowing right from wrong, judging?

    Regular church going people (christians?) always seem to think they have a monopoly on God and His thinking. They think He exists just for them. Thank God God doesn’t feel the same way. Mable thinks gospel is not a genre. It is soul..’a relationship with God’. Everyone has a relationship with God!! He determines whether its acceptable. If phony christians could get a physical hold of God they’d toss Him out of the church for not judging harshingly enough and being too forgiving.
    Now I did say ‘phony christians’so the rest of you could untangle your robes.
    Kandi, I admire you. God gave you your many talents and your sensuality. Don’t change. I hope that cute guy makes you so happy that many more gospel songs are inspired.You’re on the right track, You love your life and want to go to the Source with praise. Best wishes.

    Kandi, except the song u have produced, no matter what another has to say. Many other artist have made gospel, songs for many years, such as micheal Jackson, pattii labelled, Aretha Franklin, just to name a few. Your sex toys u sell has nothing to do with u recording. Gospel song, you open with who u are. If the ones that is writing ur back about your song , look in there closet and see how many sex toys they have. You having a baby out a we’d lock ????, many have not only 1 out of wedlock themselves. Maybe 4 or 5 all with different daddy’s, that’s not my point, the kicker is u a singe mom and u did not lay down and drown in ur own sorrow, and lay around and do nothing with your life and you been very successful at doing, they just JEALOUS, Kandi do what God puts in your heart, Money u have, so it’s not for the money. God put this song in your heart for a reason, run wit it Kandi, it just might save somebody’s SOUL

    Keep up the good work God Bless u Kandi
    Love u much

    If kandi do record a gospel song it should only be about what she has experienced in her own life with God, sometimes rappers and people that is not walking a full life with God have messages and stories that they tell in their songs. We all arent perfect and none of us should never think we have the right to judge no one.

    Kandi Burress can record whatever genre of music she desires. However, she must understand the critism will come because of her endeavors into the world of soft-porn. Having and adult talk show and a shop of adult toys does not register with God’s command to abstain from things “unclean”. People have their opinions and I respect that, I don’t believe anyone is judging Kandi Burress. Yes, there is alot of hypocrisy and people feeling self-righteous, but, we all are sinners. Everyday we sin. Not everyone has a personal relationship with God. Can they work on getting closer to God? Of course they can!!!

    Before I can comment I need a few things: Kandi’s beleif about her responsibility to God and what the song is about…the lyrics would be easily aquired however I still would have to talk to Kandi to ask her what she is trying to say then I would have to find out what she believes..then I could give and opinion…IJS

    I don’t know if people are really judging Kandi??? I mean, would you want someone working for you that is not 100% committed? Kandi can sing very well. I think it’s that something as serious as being, and trying to live right in God, it’s a serious enough matter, that one should choose ye this day whom you will serve. No one is perfect. It’s kind of like, I’m married, but I want to do someone else too. Maybe she is on her way to separating herself? But, anyway God Bless Kandi.
