Chrisette Michele has endured months of backlash because of her choice to perform at one of Donald Trump's inaugural balls in January. Now the singer is saying she deeply regrets the decision.

The singer sat down with The Breakfast Club to talk about the severe stress the incident has caused. She says she suffered a miscarriage and has contemplated suicide. Thankfully she's sought help via prescription anti-depressants and various forms of therapy.
Now that she's on the mend, she's making amends to those she offended by choosing to celebrate the 45th president (her comments begin at 3:25). "I regret everything that happened. I think that was a bad choice," she said. "I was wrong and I offended a lot of people."

Michele blamed her belief that she might have been a positive addition to the line on a potentially self-righteous belief that she could cut through the toxicity of the event.

She ended the interview with a direct apology delivered directly to viewers (28:38).
