The Houston stripper lets her thoughts be known.
Maliah Michel has responded to Drake’s act of “retiring” her jersey.
The “Signs” rapper paid good-intentioned homage to three well-known local exotic dancers, Lira Mercer, Maliah Michel, and Miracle Watts, with a spoof jersey retirement ceremony. However, it doesn’t seem like Michel is being a 100% good sport about it.
She took to her Instagram page to proclaim that “no man can retire me.” She also said that “Maliah will retire Maliah,” presumably trying to reclaim the agency that she feels Drake didn’t grant her with the jersey retirement shenanigans.
Not all of the ladies had a problem with it though. Lira Mercer was proud to make “strip club history” and shared her excitement on social media the night of the ceremony.
Wow , made strip club history tonight. Got in , got out .. STILL relevant 🤷🏽♀️S/O to the BOY !! @Drake
