Everything Is Going Down, But The Word Of God……Sunday Best winner Le’Andria Johnson is seemingly done with her gospel roots, as a recent expletive-filled rant against the church cost her a spot at the Essence Festival in New Orleans.

“You know what I’m tired of though? … I’m tired of being Le’Andria Johnson that y’all know of,” she says during a Facebook Live stream. “And Ima tell you like this: I could be on a Kirk Franklin level. I could be on a Mary Mary level. Yolanda Adams, Marvin Sapp, Fred Hammond. All the gospel greats … All the R&B. Beyoncé, Brandy. … If I played the game, I could really be on that level. I could, but I’m not ’bout playin’ no games, though.”

Johnson went on to claim she’s “tired of this sh*t,” saying she refuses to stop cursing and/ or being herself for the sake of being a gospel superstar.

“Essence Festival is a couple of days away and if y’all feel like y’all don’t want me on it, y’all don’t want me on it.”

Festival organizers heard Johnson loud and clear, cancelling her appearance during a group performance honoring Dottie Peoples.

“I’m not gonna be there because the gospel part of the Essence Festival, apparently, me speaking my right — I have an amendment right … and that’s freedom of speech. So my freedom of speech caused me not to be at the gospel part of the Essence Festival. And I’m pretty sure they don’t want me to be there because I said ‘f— Christianity, f— the church,’ I said that. Maybe that’s why they don’t want me to go.”

Johnson also blasted fellow singer Marvin Winans.

“I don’t care whose spiritual father he is. He could have been mine, but no. He wanted to go past me like I was a peasant! Walked right past me like I was a peasant … and you ain’t even know! I’m a product of you! But it’s all good, though. Now you know.”

Festival organizers have not addressed Johnson’s cancelled appearance.

Athough, we may not like the tone, manner, or word choice Le’Andria Exposed some ugly truth about the church.  Do your dirt, but keep it hidden and do it behind closed doors and the bigger your influence it is okay for you to be ratchet,  it if you are small time and get busted we will crucify you.  Now anyone that follows me and my blog know I have been extremely critical of Johnson and disappointed in some of her past behavior.  However, the church made excuses for her and said she is keeping it real and this is okay and that is okay, but now you want to say she took it to far.  No she did not take it far enough and it is time to stop the cover up.  It is funny that the very man she Exposed is not better than her.  Did everyone forget Marvin has a bastard child the ruined his marriage, but he could look down on someone.  When it was Whitney Houston’s Funeral he could make all kind of excuses for her and try to preach her into Heaven,  it not speak to someone that acts just like her.

Let’s examine Church Hurt:

Long Explication and I will be done with this disconnected, heartless trending topic that is now a joke to many. “CHURCH HURT”. I know personally of quite a few situations where male pastors, elders, deacons… raped young vulnerable and fatherless boys from single parent homes and years later some of these boys (now men) are currently in jail, sick, on drugs and a few are even dead. Its called betrayed by the “godly” leaders who were intrusted to step in, care and protect innocent LIVES!! However, the church community came to some of their defenses when the news broke because of their names and influences. You cannot tell me church hurt is not a thing and in some cases TRAUMATIC yet some of you are saying “get over it”. Someone of influence even suggested “just get delivered and take a (mental illness) pill”…WOW. I’m not even going there but what a contradiction within itself. However, tell that to the ones who are now dead, strung out on drugs and alcohol, mentally ill, and depressed etc..as a result of their inability to cope. There are countless examples of REAL church hurt and the results in different ways, has ripple effects. I can’t believe people are downplaying individuals personal experiences and making jokes. You all can have it, but have you considered why church attendance, conference, meetings etc.. has dwindled down…drastically and this new found inclusion Gospel is on the rise. Trust that it isn’t for no VALID reason. Someone not speaking to you is lightweight compared to the things that many have experienced. I can go on but just wake me up when you all post the REAL stuff… I’m disgusted…I’m done….  How many men you know like John Dael Husband, Eddie Long and countless others that used their influence to destroy lives they were supposed to build.  Do not be apart of the cover up any longer.

  1. I never agree with your articles and how you appear to be messy at time. However, I must say I agree with you on this article and I love how you have spoken the truth about church folks. People are hypocrites and overly sensitive. We love drama and we sweep crazy stuff like “Eddie Long” under the rug. Sweeping these issues under the rug is wrong Sir William. I thank you for speaking about this hypocrisy that plagues out world.

  2. Where’s David when we need him? Lol
    She spoke nothing but facts! I know it, she knows it and you guys know it too! 96.3% of black churches ain’t shit! 🤷🏾‍♂️

  3. LeAndria needs to stop playing and just go secular. She can smoke, drink and curse all she wants–LMAO! Her stans will defend her to the death, but her outbursts are never a good look. This one in particular is the worst because she’s playing with her coins that she always brags about. How will you pay your $4000 rent if you’re not getting booked Mrs. Johnson? LMAO! This girl is a looney toon.

    • I blame these greedy wordly minded compromising preachers looking to profit off secular artists like her cussing smoking pornographer gangster snoop dog the church has become complacent McCray shouldn’t represent cogic because he is a fraud hypocrite homosexual that must have something on blake who allows him to freelance

  4. Black women and these weaves!!!! UGGGGH!!!

    • You must not be that observant, or just a completely indoctrinated black white supremacist, if you believe women of all colors don’t wear weave. All women and they’re weaves….UGGGGh

  5. I agree with you 100%. People constantly made excuses for her and kept allowing her to come to their churches; now all of a sudden she finally said publicly with her mouth what her actions have always said and those same people are silent and/or hurt by what she said. If this had been a private rant that just floated around some preaching circles some of these same ”offended” pastors would still let her come to their churches because secretly they feel the same way she does. There’s a reason why she could do/say whatever she wanted wherever she wanted and face little to no consequences, because she already knew the truth. The church has this as long as you don’t say it in public rule it’s all good. She screwed up when she said it in public not because she said it.

    As far as Marvin Winans goes he’s always been arrogant, it’s never been a secret and it was on full display at Whitney Houston’s funeral. Now I will say she should’ve left out the I don’t care who’s spiritual father he is part because his spiritual son has had her at his church a few times in the past couple of years in spite of him and Brian Carn being friends. Why bring him into it when he had nothing to do with what Marvin Winans did? Why burn that bridge when the guy was more than willing to have you at his church even if it meant losing friendships? She really shouldn’t have said that.

    • Thanks Christina!!!

    • @Christina Girl I did think he went overboard at that Funeral Service. They brought ALL the Winans Family 2 da Stage at the Child ‘s Funeral. Looked like a Winans Family Reunion 😎😎😎. They went Hollywood on the Girl!!!

  6. Le’Andria needs to be blacklisted once and for all. She is an arrogant harlot who has made a mockery of the church, all while profiting off of it! I don’t care how well she sings, she is a hot mess! How many chances will she get? She needs to be sat down and seek true deliverance! #SickOfHerFoolishness

    • I wonder if the Jesus you say you serve would “blacklist”list her? I wonder if he would call her a “hotmess” or a “harlot”? You and those that think like you are exactly who she is talking about…WWJD?

  7. She ought to know by now that the church doesn’t want to hear the truth. Though, earlier this year she was on a TVOne show interview. I can’t remember the name of the new show but it was kind of like Oprah’s Master class. Johnson said that her friends think she drinks too much but she explained that she was making up for lost time because she felt like her parents’ hoky requirements put on her as a kid caused her to miss out on alot of fun things in life. She seemed hurt and bitter, which is nothing new in the church. God, bless her with peace.

  8. Having grown up in the bible belt, in church, I know (and you know) what she is saying is true. I like her, and the fact she can’t be bought, which is more than i can say for a lot of people in church. Everybody who is “clutching their holy pearls” is not being honest. Her delivery may have been rough but it dont change the truth, and last time I checked God looooves truth

  9. They tried to tell you about Leandria Johnson on the Queen’s Court months ago…girl bye 😛

  10. It is time to be REAL of be STILL! We the church needs to go back to the old time way! Stop lowering the standards when it comes to the house of God. Where is the accountability?

  11. LeAndria is a DYKE who self medicates because she’s unable to walk in her TRUTH. Every church folk in FL and probably ATL too knows that she is an abusive, drunken carpet muncher.

  12. Wow, she’s sounds like a Bishop/Pastor/Deacon/Elders daughter.

  13. @prettynpink : Most gospel singers need to be blacklisted, They all become arrogant when the money start rolling in. Most gospel singers male and female have made a mockery of the church, all while profiting while living a lie. This is not a bash against gospel singers, pastors, preacher or so called saints, however I am bashing bullshit in the church. I am one of the folks who was hurt by a pastor and I was a young 20 21 year old smart young lady, I knew what was right and what was wrong: Thank You Jesus, I got married at 19, my husband was 29 years old, and I suffered physical, verbal, and mental abuse. The physical abuse got worse and worse, so I decided to go and get a bandaid, a bandaid as in the arms of some comfort, I committed adultery. I made a mistake of feeling guilty, I confess to my pastor, the pastor wanted me to give him detail of the sexual event. he ask me. ” Did he kiss your breast Did the man pull your panties down, what color was your panties”? I couldn’t believe he was asking me these questions, I politely refuse to answer, “Pastor I had sex outside of my marriage, and I don’t think these questions are necessary. The pastor then said if you do not answer my questions, I will call in My board and stand you before the church and tell them your sin. That’s when I stood up, “Tell Tell go to hell, then I left got in my auto riding away with tears rolling down my face,m I said to the Lord,” Lord If I was wrong Open up the gates to hell cause I am on my way”. I have always Love the Lord before and after that, but i suffered the pain and hurt, drugs and more. Through all the pain, my personal relationship with God is what saved me. People if we never step inside a church building again, believe me God is Real, He heard my cry. No I am not a church goer, however I would Love to go and worship with other like minded folks. Instead I worship God daily, at home at work or driving my car. When the gospel song came out “Through the Storm”, Yolanda Adams, it was like a miracle, I had my owe business, and her CD landed in my place of business, I did not no where it came from I knew it was not mines. Through Adams project track “Through the Storm”. truly was a song to minister to me that God Loves me. These gospel stars need to understand that their song of ministry can help a dying person. because their song of ministry is important to the Kingdom, because the word of God is being preached or told of the goodness of God, these poor pastors, singers are falling into the traps of controversy. @prettynpink : Most gospel singers need to be blacklisted, They all become arrogant when the money start rolling in.

    • So sorry u were treated by your former pastor in that manner . Please don’t give up on all churches because of that bad occurrence. Pray and ask God where he would have u to worship and follow his urging. Blessings to you.

      • e@Renee, Thank you, Im cool, that was along time ago, I bumped my head a couple times through out my life, I sure due to the traumatic experience. However through it all my Saviour was there all the time, and through this journey is where my relationship with My God was formed. I kept trying to go to church, not for no long period, I always felt out of place. My mom told me one day, She called me by my name, “TinaSue, did you know there was gonna be some people in heaven that has never gone to church” she told me that when I was a young girl. We all probably have had a traumatic experience. but one thing for sure there is someone who suffered or suffering in a thing, that was way more traumatic than what I went through. I pray for that man, woman boy or girl who are suffering because church pain.

    • Mr.O and the rest of the world, I apologize for the repeat of a hundred time post. Mr O I tried to take off 99 of them but no such luck. Please take what is not needed down for me. Thank you Mr. Obnoxious.
