Kelly Rowland — one-third of Destiny’s Child and Beyonce’s BFF — recently came out with her solo single “Dirty Laundry,” which is about the intense competitiveness that comes with being famous.

Anyway, the countdown, ahem, has started for the Knowles-Carter family to confirm or deny this news! I’ll start chilling the champagne and titanium straws! [E! Online]
