As praise continues to ring in for Beyonce’s history-making ‘Vogue’ spread (click here to see it in full), one of the singer’s most familiar cheerleader, lifelong friend/Destiny’s Child bandmate Kelly Rowland, recently extended her support not only to the burgeoning pop icon but also the staff who made the vision come to life.
Taking to Beverly Hills on Wednesday to attend the premiere of Spike Lee’s forthcoming critically acclaimed film, ‘BlacKkKlansman,’ Rowland gushed about Bey’s foray with ‘Vogue’:
“I think that it speaks volumes about who she is because it wasn’t about her in that moment,” the ‘Motivation’ singer said. “It was everyone else. We know who Beyonce is. I mean, of course, through that cover, but just as a woman, a black woman, and it’s a beautiful thing, and that’s what we celebrate.”
Look inside to hear what else she said…
“I remember looking at a Vogue magazine cover and I saw three beautiful white women on the cover and it said, ‘This is what beauty looks like.’ If I’m not that color how am I supposed to know what beauty looks like?” So when we see women of color on magazine covers… [it shows] this is what beauty is like. We are what beauty is. I’m extremely excited for young girls of color to see that and understand and know that [they] are beautiful.”
