Kelly Rowland Addressees Elephant In The Room; Constantly Being Identified As Second Best!
There has always been an obvious divided love and fandom for the #90s original girl group members of #DestinysChild #Beyonce and #KellyRowland . Some base it off the notion of #colorism and others base it off of favoritism within management and exposure. However; no matter how you slice it, no one can deny either of these women of their resiliency and overall talent, PERIOD!
#According to #Madameoire Kelly recently released an EP entitled The Kelly Rowland Edition . The project took a week to create as she paired up with some fresh and talented new skool producers and writers. Sources have indicated that a behind the scenes snippet of a studio session was put out of Kelly and the team of writers working. Within the snippet Kelly is asked by one of the team members of what is her overall concept of the EP. She responded upon the basis of always being shadowed in by being deemed second best.
“The elephant in the room for me has always been second best,” she states. “That’s actually the first time I’ve said that out loud.” She goes on to state “I think what kind of took me back was how comfortable I felt in the room to be so transparent, it’s got to feel right, and everybody feels like that in here.”
Though Kelly has once shed light on taking a break from her friendship with Beyoncé due to personal issues within her relationship in her song Dirty Laundry :
While my sister was on stage, killing it like a motherf–ker/I was enraged, feeling it like a motherf–ker/Bird in a cage, you would never know what I was dealing with/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?/Forget the records, off the record, I was going through some bullsh-t/Post Survivor, she on fire, who wanna hear my bullsh-t?
She has also confirmed that neither her or Beyoncé have ever had any ill will against each other and that their union is actually stronger than ever. “I think the people wanted those stories for years, and that’s just so sad on them because it’s not like that,” she said. “It’s so crazy, and I just think it’s so sad that we live in a world where people don’t want to see women get along and encourage and empower each other, and that’s what we do for each other.”
Now that we think about it, why does everything always have to be a battle of one over the other anyway specifically when it comes down to women of any genre?
