R&B Singer-Kelly Rowland is the cover girl of Essence Magazine-September Issue.
In a revealing interview with Essence, Rowland, 32, explains the meaning behind those much-discussed references to Bey on “Dirty Laundry,” the lead single from her fourth solo album Talk a Good Game. “For a long time I wasn’t happy, but that had nothing to do with Beyoncé,” Rowland says. “That had to do with me trying to get my life in order and make better decisions for myself. I’m seeing all these wonderful things happen for her and I am happy for her. But I want a path. I want things to pop off for me, too. Not on her level but whatever my level is supposed to be.”
Finding her strength — literally — has been key to blazing new trails, the X-Factor judge tells ESSENCE. Through workouts with trainer Jeanette Jenkins and sparring sessions with former boxer Martin Snow, she’s finding her power. “I see the beauty in boxing,” she says. “It teaches me strength, physically but mostly mentally. I had to learn my strength, because for so long I could have been tougher than I was.”
In the interview, she also talked about her estranged father, her romantic relationship and her hopes for the future…
Though we see them perfect on our screens and even strive to be like them, most celebrities have body/image issues…They are not happy with what they are—the exact thing we so much want…
In a recent interview with StyleBlazer, Michelle Williams talked about how bad she felt anytime she looked in the mirror, to the extent that she wanted to have botox injections. But Kelly Rowland saved her from it…
“I was going through a moment, looking in the mirror, and I was like, ‘I need Botox…I was telling the girl that I need Botox, and Kelly was like, ‘Girl, hush. Just go somewhere and get a facial.’”
According to Michelle Williams, she decided to follow Rowland’s friendly advice and had a facial instead.
“Sure enough, I went and got a facial and it really made everything that I disliked disappear,” she said. “She was right.”
Kelly Rowland made a stop on ‘Good Morning America’ in New York City on Wednesday and she was not looking BAD.
For sometime now, the singer has kept her weight good and her appearances simple.
On ‘Good Morning America’, Kelly Rowland talked about her controversial single, “Dirty Laundry” and denied she was jealous of Beyonce.
She said; “The crazy thing about that song is that I was going through my own personal battle so when [Beyonce's] doing her thing, I’m over thinking: ‘What am I going to do next? What do I want to do with my life?. I’m going through this relationship. I’m smiling for people in public and in so much pain, and thinking about what I want for myself and just wanting more.”
Did you know Kelly Rowland was jealous of Beyonce—sometimes back?
In her new track ‘Dirty Laundry’ Kelly Rowland has opened up on her private life—talking about being jealous of Beyonce’s success at one point in time and being involved with with an abuser (ex boyfriend) who tried to turn her against her friends.
In the song, she sings…
While my sister was on stage killing it like a mother——, I was enraged feelin’ it like a mother——-.
Bird in the cage, you would never know what I was dealing, we went our separate ways but I was happy she was killing it
Bittersweet, she was up I was down. No lie I feel good for her, but what do I do now?
Meanwhile, this n-gga putting his hands on me, swear y’all don’t know the half of this industry.
