Kandi Burruss from Real Housewives of Atlanta wears many hats, one of them being host of Kandi Koated Nights (a web show discussing sex) and creator of Bedroom Kandi, her sex toy line! So when Kandi released her new gospel song “Stay Prayed Up”, as seen on the latest RHOA, many Christians criticized Kandi for venturing into gospel while being so vocal about sex.
Kandi is addressing the backlash and speaking exclusively to Christian Post, revealing she is not too surprised by the reaction! “Even telling some of my friends that I wanted to do a gospel song on my current project that I’m working on, they laughed at me. So I knew if my closest friends were going to laugh I knew other people would have things to say as well. So I wasn’t surprised,” says the singer.
Kandi dishes that the inspiration behind the gospel song was her ex-fiance’s death in 2009, and her newly found love in Todd Tucker! She dealt with the pain from the last few years with prayer and that is why she felt the need to share that through her music. Kandi feels that prayer is what ultimately helped her find true love while not even looking for it.
Kandi adds, “For the people who have embraced my song, ‘Stay Prayed Up’ and did not judge me or the people who may have thought whatever they thought before and heard the song, I just appreciate people not judging and understanding and relating.”
I can see how some people who are religious would find it strange that Kandi is doing gospel while selling sex toys, but I think being sexual is natural and people can express that side just as much as their spiritual or religious side.
