Jussie Smollett spoke with with SiriusXM’s Sway Calloway on SiriusXM’s Sway in the Morning.

Smollett has been convicted of staging a 2019 hate crime against himself.

Jussie has maintained his innocence throughout the trial and after.

Before the trial, he took part in a controversial interview with Robin Roberts.

Some parts of the interview directly contradicted his court testimony.

“I did not want to do that interview,” Smollett said on Wednesday.

He confessed that he didn’t actually watch the interview until clips of it were played at the trial.

“So, I had to watch it and I watched it and I was mortified,” he said.

He said that he “spoke the truth” in the interview, but came off as “performative” because he didn’t want to be there.
