Chloe Bailey says that licking the microphone wasn’t deliberate throughout her VMA efficiency
Chloe Bailey undeniably put social media in a stranglehold earlier this year. While Halle Bailey was filming Disney’s live action “The Little Mermaid” in Europe, Chloe became her. Along with certain adjustments to her social media presence, Chloe announced an upcoming solo album and debut performance at MTV’s 2021 Video Music Awards. Almost a week ago, Chloe took the stage and grabbed souls with her grades, dance moves, and sultry energy.
Now the all-rounder has revealed how deeply concentrated she was on her first public appearance of “Have Mercy”.
“I swear I didn’t even know I leaked the microphone until I saw the performance,” Chloe tweeted on Friday.
For those of you who missed it, Chloe graced the VMA stage for about four minutes. Dressed in a pink bodysuit and boots, Chloe was stunned as she dived across the stage between female and male dancers, twisting, bending, jumping and making her way across the stage. No beat or note was left out.
Towards the end of the performance, Chloe threw herself on the stage floor. While she was still singing, she rolled over on her stomach and gave the floor a few dry humps. Then she looked up and licked her microphone while the network camera zoomed in on her face.
Take a look at the two-second moment for yourself:
As mentioned earlier, the news of Chloe’s solo career didn’t cause as much buzz as one would think. With Halle gone, Chloe updated her Instagram posts with peppy outfits and soothing song remixes.
She even went viral with solo appearances like her rendition of Nina Simone’s “Feeling Good” song on the ABC Special in June. Between the social media changes and solo bookings, fans had already started to speculate, which Chloe later confirmed.
“My sister went to London to do her film for seven or eight months and it was so hard to be without her,” Chloe told Billboard during an August interview. “That’s when I started developing my project. I’ve found my confidence – like, ‘OK, you can do this now.’ I always have my sister’s support and she will always have mine, no matter what we do together or individually. “
