Poor Michelle? Apparently not. Destiny's Child member Michelle Williams has finally spoken out on the 'Poor Michelle' blog which documents the singer's many struggles during her time in the R&B group.

The blog 'Poor Michelle' has been circulating around the internet for a while now, detailing Michelle's eternal battle with stepping out of the shadows of her bandmates Kelly Rowland and Beyonce (no last name needed).

From screenshots of missteps in music videos ("the time she faced the wrong way") to having the last pick of the wardrobe ("the time she didn't get to wear a skirt") the blog gently pokes fun at the third Destiny's Child - but she's now apparently got wind of it.

Instead of getting mad, Williams simply pointed out that contrary to popular belief, she's certainly not "poor" at all thank you very much - she's actually rather rich, because she made loads of money with Destiny's Child. We see no lies there. 

Hmm. That's sort of taken the fun out of the Poor Michelle blog for us - we used to read it when we were having a shit day and think: "Maybe we're all Michelles". We still are, but without the money. Or the fame. :(
