Kandi is the type to only blog when she has something to say and this week she had a lot to say and it was all about her new gospel song. Kandi is getting a ton of mean tweets condemning her for putting out a gospel song when she has both a sex toy line and a very sexual online show, Kandi Koated Knights. Kandi reminds us that she comes from a very religious family with a long line of preachers. She was raised in the church, although she says she never officially joined the church because she knew she was not going to “follow the rules” and she didn’t want to stand up in front of her families church and lie. Her blog was pretty lengthy for her and it was entirely on this subject. Click through for a portion of what she had to say.
From Kandi’s Bravo Blog:
Hello everybody! This week’s episode was the cause of much controversy and debate for me. It all circled around the decision to do my gospel song Stay Prayed Up. I knew when I decided to do it that a lot of people would be shocked, since I often talk about sex, have an adult toy line (Bedroom Kandi), and host a sex and relationships internet show (Kandi Koated Nights). I knew that some people would give me the side eye, but I didn’t know that it would be to this extreme. When the episode prior to this one aired, which first showed me mentioning that I wanted to do a gospel song, I got so many angry tweets. Can you believe a woman actually tweeted me and said, “Bitch you can’t praise my God”? I was like wow… People always said that the worst things to debate or bring up are politics and religion. Well whoever made that statement knew exactly what they were talking about!
I’ve found in society in general and especially on twitter there is a certain faction of people who choose to advertise their religion in their profiles and then spend their days being hypercritical of others and very judgemental of their choices. This is not the way the religion I was raised in works at all. What do y’all think? Was it a bad idea for Kandi to put out a gospel single with Marvin Sapp? Tell me how you really feel!
