Rhonetta Johnson (born September 5, 1981), also known as Rhonetta, is an American singer, rapper, and model most known for her appearance on season five of American Idol, in which she famously became irate after the judges chose not to pick her; calling out Paula Abdul and the other judges. In 2014 Rhonetta released a remix extended play containing remixed versions of previous releases; the extended play is entitled Never Trust a Thot.
Rhonetta appeared on season five of American Idol for their Greensboro, North Carolina auditions. Johnson burst into the room singing her version of Britney Spears' "Oops I Did it Again" only to "laugh it off"; claiming to be nervous. She wished Simon Cowell a happy birthday then proceeded to make "silly" claims that she could be more successful than Janet Jackson or Mariah Carey. Rhonetta continued trying to impress the judges, singing Mary J. Blige's "You Remind Me" only to disparage her rendition, saying it was "hoarse". After singing "And I" by Ciara the judges decided not to send Rhonetta to Hollywood. After leaving the audition Johnson called out Paula Abdul, mocking her song "Straight Up" and making claims that if they walked into a room together then no one would recognize Abdul but everyone would think Rhonetta to be a celebrity.
Johnson released a remix extended play on YouTube on February 16, 2014, entitled Never Trust a Thot, in which she remixed six previous releases of hers.
