Extra’s AJ Calloway caught up with Michael Strahan at the 2016 Met Gala.
The event marked one of Strahan’s first appearances since announcing he is leaving “Live! with Kelly and Michael” for “Good Morning America.”
Michael has been a daily fixture in the news with rumors he’s not getting along with Kelly.
“It’s not for me to kill rumors,” he said. “People believe what they want to believe. I found this out a long time ago what the situation is and I found you cannot go through life trying to make [people] believe what you want them to believe or try to prove something… Everybody gets a glimpse of me on TV and they draw their own opinion… I just show up and I enjoy myself.”
Speaking about his move to “GMA,” he said, “It’s a great opportunity and going to be a great experience. I love ‘Live!’ I loved being there four years. I’m not gone. I’m still part of the ‘Live!’ family, and I’m always around and going to be there whenever they call.”
When asked about his Daytime Emmy win for Outstanding Host with Kelly, Strahan called it a team effort. “It’s a testament to ‘Live!’ and the creativity of that show and the fun that we have.”
Also joking that AJ should take over his seat next to Kelly when AJ asked who should take over his chair, he quipped, “You, we look alike, smile!”
