Thanks in great part to Perez Hilton, a late 90s interview clip of the original Destiny’s Child members made its way around the net due to one awesomely gif-worthy moment.
As fans know, the clip shows a young Beyonce, Letoya Luckett, and Latavia Roberson imparting some serious side-eye action to Kelly Rowland after she introduced herself as the group’s ‘second lead vocalist’.
No member of the group has spoken out about the viral clip until now as Luckett, in hot promotion of season 3 of VH1’s hit show ‘Single Ladies’, weighed in on the clip with MTV:
Video stream not available in all countries:
“OK, yeah, so, I suddenly start getting texts on a particular day, I guess as soon as it surfaced and they were like, ‘Your face.’ And I was like, ‘What face? What are you talking about?’ And so I went and I looked and I died laughing because I don’t even know where that came from or why we were looking like that.”
“Everybody is like, ‘Shade for Beyoncé’s cough,’ What if the girl had to cough?” she asked. “[What Kelly said] was the truth, we really would sit there and everybody knew their role. It was a real team, like, we were team players. B was first lead; Kelly was second lead; I was soprano; Tavia was the alto and she was the spokesperson. Everybody knew their lane so no one ever stepped in anyone else’s lane. That’s how every team should work.”
“Our faces were hilarious, I did something crazy with my eyes, and now I’m like, ‘Why did I do that? That’s so mean,’” she said. “But I don’t think it was made, because what she said was so true, and we all knew that.”
