Jaime Buerger of Las Vegas Weekly chatted with Me’shell Ndegeocello and asked the singer if she is a “political artist.” Ndegeocello responded, “My responsibility is simply to be myself, to express myself as sincerely as possible and to be funky. That’s it. It so happens that being myself and expressing my individuality also encompasses being committed to building more and more compassionate communities. I’m most interested in folks working on their micro-history, sorting through themselves and then choosing to be present in their lives, choosing not to have their experiences dictated to them by marketers and politicians—that seems more tangible to me than big ideologies and notions of community that deny individuality.”
