Pause your Spotify and listen to Kelly Rowland’s new song “Dirty Laundry” (after the jump) — not only is it intense, but it’s really good. She sings about how hard it was for her to watch her “sister” Beyoncé get A+++-list famous while Kelly was “going through some bullshit,” mostly, it seems, an abusive relationship: ”Meanwhile this ni**a puttin’ his hands on me, swear y’all don’t know the half of this industry. She sings about lying to her mother and her friends about the abusive relationship, classically being isolated from help. “Kinda lucky I was in her shadow / phone call from my sister, what’s the matter / she said ‘oh no, you gotta leave’ / I’m on the kitchen floor, he took the keys / I was mad at everybody, I mean everybody, her her her her everybody,” she sings, adding that it took five years to finally get her life together. “I was trapped in his house … I was battered / He hit the window like it was me, until it shattered,” she sings. “He told me nobody love you but me, not your mama, not your daddy, and especially not B. He turned me against my sister, I missed you.” Keep reading »
As we might have mentioned, the 2013 Grammys were a special affair. Not just because of the return of Justin Timberlake and a special appearance by Prince and his pimp cane, but because prior to the broadcast, CBS sent out a memo outlining a very special dress code. The dress code attempted to quell the tide of nipples, underboobage and exposed buttocks, but did anybody actually pay attention? Not really. Keep reading »
The 2013 Grammys were a weird affair, no? “Hosted” by LL Cool J, who was barely seen, and featuring way more musical performances than actual awards, the Grammys are a bizarre fete. Nobody really thinks they’re that on the ball or relevant, but still, we watch. This year, theere was fashion drama, as the Grammys sent out a dress code beforehand to make sure that nobody showed too much boob or butt during the broadcast. I can safely say there was no major nipple action, but after three and a half hours, I was glad it was over, if only so I could stop making that throw up noise every time fun. was on the screen.
Let’s look at some clothes, okay?
I can’t help but feel like things are just a little more right with the world when Beyonce finds time to hang with her Destiny’s Child sisters Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams. If you listen closely, I’m pretty sure you can hear the sound of babies laughing, birds chirping, and, oh yeah, the cha-ching! of more money entering Queen Bey’s bank account. See one more shot of Beyonce, Kelly and Michelle — with Bey’s mom Tina and a random friend (or cousin?) — after the jump! Keep reading »
It’s a given that Beyonce and Jay-Z’s baby is going to be one of the most spoiled children ever to crawl the Earth. Not because his or her parents are out of touch with reality, because they’re stupid rich dagnabbit and so are their friends — why shouldn’t that tyke be spoilt to the core? The latest gift bestowed upon Baby Z? Oh, it was just a $5,200 pink Swarovski crystal bathtub from pal Kelly Rowland, because, oops, she accidentally revealed the sex of the couple’s baby. Read more…
Beyonce and Jay-Z are keeping pretty quiet about the gender of their baby — but Kelly Rowland isn’t!
She says the power couple is having a … girl!
Kelly accidentally let the news slip while dishing to Us Weekly about the difficulty of picking out the perfect present for the baby shower. Read more…
We love the idea of shorts suits and wearing heels with shorts. So you know this polished and floral look Kelly Rowland wore while watching “X-Factor” auditions in Liverpool had our names written all over it. Kelly’s large floral print shorts are Stella McCartney, but we found a less expensive option. Check it out… Keep reading »
As one-third of a top-selling girl group and Beyonce’s former shadow, Kelly Rowland has had a difficult time coming into her own, while remaining in the public eye. So occasionally she wears something to get attention. How else can we explain these chain mail pants, which give her legs the look of droopy tree trunks (if such a thing were possible)? She could have just gone without the chain mail, but then she’d look like every other pop star, and that would defeat the point. Keep reading »
