SPOTTED: Michelle Williams Debut Night For "Chicago" In London

Michelle Williams was spotted on the streets of London last night after her debut in the "Chicago" musical.  I hear the shows are sold out now that she's in it:

Looking chic Ms. Michelle.  She also did an interview recently with BBC.  And here's a snippet of what she had to say about her album disappointments and if she's jealous of others' success:
Were you disappointed it didn't do well in the charts? Very disappointed because I don't go in the studio for my health. I felt like I was ready to go, it seemed like it was doing well at first. So I understand you cannot depend on your label and your management for 100% backing. I know there were things that I had to do, or could have done, that maybe I didn't do as well - maybe I didn't have a good enough internet presence. Sometimes artists have to market themselves now. I'm still disappointed, but I was like, 'if God can give me an ounce of what you give others then I would be okay'. I don't ask for much. I gave out good music - that's enough. Are you envious of the level of success that Beyonce has achieved? I wouldn't say I'm envious but I know that I can have number one songs. We all can. Myself, Kelly [Rowland] - she's got a number one song now with David Guetta [When Love Takes Over]. It's possible. Destiny's Child, we're all solo. There's no reason why A, B and C can't have their own levels of success in lanes A, B and C. I might get in trouble for saying that but, oh well. And what I hate people to do is, they don't think because I'm not visible over here with the number ones, they think I'm not doing anything or they think I'm not as successful. But I'm in the freaking West End! I'm the first African-American woman to play his role in the West End! But it's okay. The other day I was walking around London, nobody made a fuss - I like that. I wanna be respected for what I do but I don't wanna be bombarded and can't go anywhere. So that's what I have over Beyonce. I can go anywhere I want.

DIMPLES: Michelle is great

DIMPLES: Michelle is great and shes right…We should give mad props for being the first African American to do that part such a big musical- it’s history in itself. If beyoncé was in this..people will blame her and the comments will sound like:"OH THEY SHOULD GIVE IT TO J HUD,OR my AUNTIE EBONY" or "THEY PICK BEY BECAUSE SHE IS LIGHT SKNINNED" . bUT NOW?EVERYBODY FORGOT THAT MATTHEW KNOWLES IS HER MANAGER.GIVE THE MAN CREDIT WHERE CREDIT IS DUE. *Sorry for my english guys.

MsDonnaGirl: She’s got the

MsDonnaGirl: She’s got the best attitude and is probably the realest of the three when it comes to speaking of her own measure of success. I’m not really into anything I’ve heard from her, but I agree: with proper marketing, someone may be. I am really impressed by her and Kelly’s viability overseas, and their willingness to go and be different. Sometimes Black artists limit themselves to national measures of success, when there’s a whole freakin’ world out there. Then we dumb down our product to some of the most bane types of enterainment (screaming and hollering and booty shaking) and compete against a stacked deck of the same tired presentations. Being willing to be different and go elsewhere for the attention you deserve just might get you there! PREACH DONNA....PREACH!!!!!
(insert witticism here) COPPED THAT MAXWELL ALBUM TODAY!!!! 's picture

Michelle will probably be

Michelle will probably be featured in a new blog by House of Fluff which I think will be launched in September. This should be fun. Sorry about the typo in the last comment.

Some people are naturally

Some people are naturally thin. No matter what they do they can not gain weight. I kow a lady who has 3 kids and weighs all of maybe 105-110lbs. It is just genetics sometimes. The same as some people are prediposed to be on the healthier side. It works both ways. What I like about Michelle is her attitude. She is not trying to be anyone she is not. And success is success, regardless of if it is here in the states or overseas. Get the love wherever you can. Kudos to Miss Williams for keeping her head up.

Her album sucked. And where

Her album sucked. And where is Kelly, number one? Probably on the alternative charts or club hits, but that song is okay. I like Kelly. Why is it that everybody need to tear down Bey, in order to succeed? They all want to be where she is at?

I love Michelle too. She

I love Michelle too. She just sounds better on stage. I saw her in the Color Purple and she can blow! She is definately suited for live performances. I did like her last song, but she is a much better actress and Broadway person. I thought she had a weak, but nice voice. But, on Broadway it is awesome!! She is successful and I think she has found her notch! Maxwell concert in Louisville, Kentucky last night was awesome!!! If you don't have a ticket get one!! It was the best concert EVER!!! I'm serious!

Well well. She's very frank

Well well. She's very frank and I'm glad she's getting her shine on. But why can't the OTHER members of Destiny's Child find real success stateside? What is it about London? ITA about bobblehead comments. She could stand to gain some weight.
