That Grape Juice Interviews Kelly Rowland

Pinned: Normal Posts Resume Below

Kelly Rowland‘s stint on the X Factor UK has largely been hailed a success. However, after being struck down will a serious illness while Stateside, the Grammy winner found herself targeted by some sects of the press for missing last week’s live show.

In her first sit-down interview since returning to the UK, the ‘Motivation’ singer candidly addresses the “drama”; also talking at some length with That Grape Juice about her new single ‘Down For Whatever’, the new version of her ‘Here I Am’ LP, her next studio album (exclusive details), and a whole lot more.

As ever, we ask the questions you really want answers to. And answer them Kelly does. What are you waiting for? Hit ‘PLAY’!

Your thoughts?

    I wish she would get a decent wig…!

    She is just irrelevant in todays music industry and this is why. She isn’t the hottest girl, she isn’t the best singer, she isn’t the best entertainer, she’s awful live and this is why she struggles to sell music with the Rihanna’s, Beyonce’s and GaGa’s… To me she is an Ashanti or one of those other side line singers!

    And as music isn’t going as well as it could be for her she is having to sell s** to us… every video is s**, TITS & ASS! She doesn’t know what market to appeal to Pop, R&B or Dance… We can’t buy into someone who doesn’t what type of artist she is… The end.

    P.s Sam, You should edit your voice out of these videos, you sound so amature and bored! Good interview non the less

Kelly is an amazing underrated artist who is finally getting her well deserved chance to shine and yet the haters don’t shut up smh. Sorry ass losers,get a f***** life ! Kelly you are amazing . And to the Bey stans, bitchass Keri stans etc. STFU cause Bey loves Kelly and supports her so what you guys are doing goes against someone who you hail as the queen. Keri stans please shut up! Keri only has 2 hits in her entire career and has fans wanting to whoop her ass *video available on YouTube* . Everyone calm your irrelevant lowlife bitchass selves down and SHUT THE f*** UP!

    @Sam —

    I’d honestly would like to have some sort of dialog with you, Sam. I’d like to..reach-out to you in an attempt to understand your fascination with 30-something-year-old Kelly Rowland. I just don’t get it; it escapes, and now…eludes me. You must be broadcasting on some “higher” digital wavelength. You’re transmitting from a satellite, miles above, while I’m sending up smoke signals and beating on animal skins.

    Just how much bites at that proverbial apple are you to give 30-something-year-old Ms. Rowland, Sam? Why is SHE so..”deserved”? Sam, is it a matter of skin tone/color? Do you feel some melanin-based kinship, or guilt with/regarding 30-something-year-old Ms. Rowland? Do tell..!!

    Sam, I think I should tell you that I now, after intense, sobering examination, feel somewhat disturbed, if not completely abandoned by Chris: allowing the 30-something-year-old Kelly Rowland on the ‘F.A.M.E’ tour. In some regard, I WANT him to kick me out off “Team-Breezy”; “good soldiers”, you see, should die at the hands of their enemies, or by the bullets of their superiors. You see, there’s a place, on said team, for the female and gay fans. But NOT for the heterosexual black males who’ve risked all (dignity and reputation) in supporting Chris. Sam, I’ve been banned, censored, and scorned so many times, I’ve now lost count. My mission, over these last near 3-years, has been to see Chris rise-up from the ashes to regain his shine – and THEN some! I think that after MJ’s untimely passing, the time is NOW right for Chris to ascend to a now vacant throne.
    You see, at heart and by nature, I’m a political creature, and think in said terms. I’ve actually been witness to executions/killings/murders based on “wrong” political affiliations. I think, worldwide, young black men/young men of color need a “figurehead” of sorts. You may think a rapper would suffice. But given the current state of Rap/Hip Hop, I must disagree, and offer three “acts” in retort:

    1.) Drake – An Jew-Canadian actor playing a rapper.
    2.) (Officer) Rick Ross – A cowardly corrections officer, not brave enough to be who he really wanted to be, so he took a “long look” inside prison cells, and then…”steals lives”.
    3.) The White Rapper – A gimmick who finds fame and fortune being just that. Then gorges himself with every then-offered vice, then raps about his “recovery” and sells millions.

    So you see, Sam, a “savior” won’t come from Hip Hop/Rap. I’d long-ago envisioned Chris as someone EVERY young black man could relate to/with. Sam, young men of color rioted in France, England, Jamaica, U.S., and they had ONE thread that binds then (besides being “of color”): Miscarriage Of Justice/ POLICE MISCONDUCT..!! So you see, Sam, there IS “method” to my madness. I’m no..”fan”. Not in the sense that you may understand it. I’m a “political visionary” – I see in THREE dimensions: X,Y,”and Z”.

    I now feel that Chris has destroyed ALL my hopes for him to be “MORE” than “just” a performer. With the obvious hypocrisy in the way Charlie Sheen, Mel Gibson were treated, as compared to the harsh, racist treatment Chris received, I thought it only a matter of time, and the reminder of such a double-standard/racism, via blog commentary, that my mission could/would be accomplished. But in an instant, with 30-something-year-old Kelly Rowland included on that tour, my near-3-years of work has been now shot through the heart, left in the gutter, and now bleeds to death! I’m not sure what it is, but I just can’t summon the same vigor to fight as I once had.. Kelly Rowland is indeed TRULY pernicious and retro-viral..!!!

    Sam, do you know WHY Chris will never be given the “proper respect” he’s due? It’s because he’s perceived as someone with young girls and gays as HIS fan-base. I offered him an avenue to extend well-beyond those..limitations. If Chris had the attention, if not loyalty of young men of color (heterosexual young men) it would’ve solidified his female fan-base. Those screaming young women are T-H-E MOST-fickle of all. Just you ask The Jonas Brothers, as Justin Bieber will shortly be reminded; trust.

    Sam, I had post, on this very blog, an email address for Chris, or his staff, to email me and explain to me just why he include her on that tour. You may have thought that a bit too “forward” of me, but you know, after being the GOOD soldier that I’ve been, and fighting this fight for now some almost 3-years now, I feel…obligated, if not entitled. But, I got no such correspondence from Chris.. Even some from “Camp-Fenty” ridiculed and mocked me – It was a VERY-public slap in the face..!!

    X,Y,”and Z” — OUT…!!

    @LAX re Nov 3rd, 11:23 pm —

    Yes, I’m in total agree: BAN ME..!!!

    ..Better still, you and your clique, minions want even more “of an effect”? Well, go and tweet Chris and ask HIM to kick me off “Team-Breezy”. That’s all it’ll really take. If you can get Chris to tweet: “X,Y, “and Z”, I DON’T want you on my team any longer!”, you know what? Your wish’ll be granted – BY HIS COMMAND: POOF!! NO MORE X,Y,”and Z”, commenting on Breezy, on ANY BLOG ANYWHERE, ANYMORE…!!!

    ..So do it: GET ME THROWN OFF “TEAM-BREEZY! Just you get a bunch of the “Fenty-ites”, and “SIX” of the other “Rowdogs”, to go on Chris’ twitter and ask him to ban me/kick me off the team and I’ll go – IN PEACE/QUIETLY. You’ll never again hear a word from me — I PROMISE..!!!
    You see, I live by/for a “code” and WILL, KEEP MY WORD; if Chris tells me he doesn’t want me on his team, I’ll leave and they’ll be no “hard” feelings on my part. Sounds unreal, doesn’t it? But you know why I can just put my tail between my legs and just walk away without regret nor animosity? Well, it’s because I KNOW I HAD A PART IN THE BUILDING OF “Team-Breezy”. You see, there couldn’t be a “Team-Breezy” without a “Team-Chris” and I was the very-first one to organized a “Team-Chris” back in early 2009 (just after the Feb 8th drama). That’s right: ME.!! Do you really think Chris could’ve looked-out over at those ’18K strong Today Show audience’ without the foundation being laid by those (even then) years of blogging, getting banned, and being censored? ..NO!

    Chris’ comeback is one that’ll be studied, and emulated, for YEARS to come. Chris’ career rebirth was the most-unique of ALL. You see, he did it WITHOUT the mainstream’s approval: Urban Blog power. Chris’ comeback ushers-in the power of the blogs. The blogs are what killed “Oprah Winfrey/Brand Oprah”. Video had killed the radio star, and the blogs killed Oprah’s 25-year-reign (for my taste, not a moment too soon). I’m digressing (and straying off-course. Let me get back to addressing your concerns..), it’s simple: ask Chris to kick me off “Team-Breezy” and that’ll be that! You, Rihanna, AND 30-something-year-old Kelly Rowland will NO longer have to suffer sleepless nights..

    Is it me or did Ms. Kelly seem totally disinterested during most of the interview? (or maybe the supposed sickness is to blame). I got absolutely nothing from this interview, because she really didn’t answer anything. Most of her answers were: “We’ll see”, “that’s a hard question”, “I don’t know”, “I’m not sure”. Ugh!

    @Willinalli re: Nov 4th, 2:32 am —

    I’ll now repeat to you what I’d just advised “LAX”: “forward your concerns to one Christopher Brown.”
    ..Should HE then issue me my “walking papers”(asks me to leave “Team-Breezy”), I’ll vaporize into the ether that is the vastness of the blogosphere.

    Willinalli, are you another (not unlike “dimplepuppet” and “antertain”) black gay man who’s just enthralled by/with 30-something-year-old Kelly Rowland?? Does she “give you life”..?? Are you just “absorbed” by/with her…”fierceness”..?? Why do you black gay men so readily identify with black women? Especially black women who want NOTHING to do with you, and I’ll quote verbatim, Kelly Rowland: “Orlando Bloom, and men who look like him, are THE most beautiful of all(men)!!”

    Difficult enough for me to understand the “land of black gayness”, even-more so when your National Anthem is sung, by and about, the likes of a “30-something-year-old Kelly Rowland”!!

    “Willinalli”, I’d like to share with you something I saw and read on another Urban Blog.. The blog’s owner, who IS a “Rowdog” was commenting on the ‘Lay it on me’ video. Although a “Rowdog”, his comments weren’t “CHAINED” by sentimentality; no! What had struck him about that video, was the “LACK OF CHEMISTRY” 30-something-year-old Kelly Rowland had with her back-up dancers. I had to reread it; for several times I did. But I then had an “epiphany”, of sorts: “would that video been more convincing had those black back-up dancers been white, and bore close resemblance to Orlando Bloom?” I think so!

    As I’ve said, I’d envisioned “MORE” for Chris. For now, he’s enjoying the screams of affections of young women/girls, and yes, gays. But these two demographic groups are frivolous in sentiment and nature. Their collective attention spans aren’t “sturdy” enough for one to base a career on/off.. NO!
    This is why I’d wanted him to branch-out and to “reach” those young men of color, whether they be in The U.K., U.S., Jamaica, or France. As I’d said, ALL of those geographic locals had recent upheaval based on one common thread: Injustice/police misconduct. In my mind, the atmosphere was right. The Arabs had their “spring”, and young men of color would have their “figurehead” who suffered as they had, and who is now “rising above”. His career/spiritual-resurrection was done NOT by some well-financed corporate media machine – NO! It was done via/by use of the “Urban Blog Mechanism”! It was as “real” and grass-roots as there could have been. 30-something-year-old Kelly Rowland’s involvement with the “F.A.M.E tour” destroyed all that..!! Kelly Rowland is a cancer! She’s a catalyst for oxidation and dismemberment! She’s an acid that leaves keloids upon the body and soul.

    Gay black men who support Kelly Rowland, are themselves, a constant, gnawing, rotting reminder of the emasculation of heterosexual black men. You see, white gay men are the polar opposite: they advance a “white male hegemony”! Black gay men = Madea, and white gay men = Mel ‘mad max’ Gibson! Mel Gibson being the habitual near-fatal woman/child batterer who’ll never suffer public scorn as HE is protected by said “Goose-stepping Aryan Homosexuals”! The very sort of men, that..(wait for it..) “motivates” 30-something-year-old Kelly Rowland. So, by default, gay black men have become “the enemy within”, and black women(Oprah Winfrey offered as prime example) also serves to “forward” the aforementioned “white-male agenda”.

    Chris could have been SO MUCH MORE..!! Chris could have had POWER/INFLUENCE..!! If Chris hadn’t destroyed any possible future ties with said young black men, he could have wielded a power not yet known to young men of color – WORLD WIDE! There has NEVER been a young man of color placed in such a position before – NEVER!!

    ..Kelly Rowland is corruption, destruction, and the purest of evil!

    I’m not hating on Kelly, I’ve been a fan from Destiny’s Child album. She used to be very likeable too but recently I thnk she come’s across like she would be quite stuck up her own ass, where as Beyoncé always plays the humble card!

    Being up for an award does NOT make you relevant in my eyes… She is just never going to be up there with Beyoncé, Rihanna, Katy Perry, GaGa… because she doesn’t dominate anything… like I said she isn’t the ‘Baddest’ in any category….

    However I do like me some Kelly, I wish her all the best.

    It would have been nice if you’d asked her what she thought about her album plummeting from the charts so quickly. It can’t all be positive, Sam. The “Here I Am” Title was wasted on a project that had poor promotion, staggered single release dates and even worse video debuts. It’s a shame really, I don’t think much separates Beyonce from Kelly talent-wise. Beyonce is the better singer but I think Kelly has the better voice and it hasn’t shown. She says she’s working with a whole list of producers for her next album but are the USA’s top people really gonna work with someone who’s promotion is virtually non-existent and who can’t sell Gold? I think all of this is a shame, but truthfully, she (and LeToya) need to stop calling on “God” every time they have some new avenue and associate Him with righteousness not evidenced in virtually pornographic videos.

    Attention “Rowdogs”: The SELF-DELUSION that is 30-something-year-old Kelly Rowland (as referenced/witnessed from/in TGJ’s latest interview with THEIR fave):

    1.) FF to 56-second: “I have a career outside X-Factor”. <–0~o No Kelly, you don't..!! You NEED X-Factor. X-Factor does NOT need you! Where else will give you the exposure you'll need to push "Here I am" to the U.K./Euro market? Remember that, in your contract with them, you have stipulated that you're to perform "HIA" material? But just ALSO you remember, X-Factor is now fast-losing viewers to the BBC's "Strictly Come Dancing".

    2.) FF to 5:43: ANOTHER CD?! So soon?!?! ..So she's now "Pulling A Rihanna": Pushing out CDs at the rate she sheds endometrial lining. In OTHER words, "Here I am" is officially DOA! The question is: How did her label make $$ to recoup for their initial investment in her? It took 'Motivation' FIVE-long months to go platinum. 'HIA' has been out for some now 10-LONG WEEKS and has STILL yet to move 200K U.S. retail units.

    3.) FF to 8:43: "Touring (with Chris) was the best, my fans came out" <–**SCREEEEEEECH**
    Now I ask: If your "fans" weren't…"motivated" enough to go out and buy your CD, you MUST be delusional, and/or neurotic to think that they THEN found the funds to buy a concert/tour ticket to see you – WHICH COST SOME 3,4,5X AS MUCH AS A CD..!!!!!
    ..NO KELLY, your "fans" DID NOT "show up"! Maybe your "IMAGINARY" fans!!

    ..Those who ACTUALLY spent their HARD EARNED MONIES to buy a "F.A.M.E Tour" ticket were there NOT TO SEE YOU, but to see Chris, Tyga, Big Sean and T-Pain.

    Kelly, you're a f****** GOOD-FOR-NOTHIN' BUM! No one is willing to spend $9-10 for your crappy CD, let alone 3,4,5X as much to buy a concert ticket to see you!!

    Kelly, you "copped" a "free" ride while on that tour: you ate outta every one else's plate.. You're a BUM! You're a VAGRANT! You're an ERRANT! You're a f****** FREELOADER! You're a INTERLOPER!! You're a HOBO!

    ..You're a FILTHY, SMELLY, DISEASED HOMELESS PERSON!
