Watch: Kelly Rowland Says Beyonce’s ‘Vogue’ Cover Is Exciting For ‘Young Girls of Color’

Published: Thursday 9th Aug 2018 by Rashad

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.”

Potent words.

    I love Kelly but why is it she keeps feeding Beyonce’s ego? Is she contracted to? Because I NEVER hear Beyonce publicly speak highly of Kelly! She just let’s her fan base insult her and Michelle!

      To be completely honest I do not find this kind of love any more normal. Kelly mentions Beyonce on every interview. As if she was cursed.

      • Kellyonce August 9, 2018

        The interviewer brought Beyonce up.

    • DIABETES UNBOTHERED 🍰 August 9, 2018

      ONLY time i can remember Bey even mentioning Kelly without being prompted to do so is her interview with TVONE in 2007 where she was asked who she thought was beautiful and she responded by saying her Mother Tina along with Kelly.

      Poor Kelly, always complimented on looks body and skin but never Talent or Status

    • Caleb August 9, 2018

      It’s becausw Kelly is asked about Beyoncé just like Michelle is. Beyoncé rarely does interviews and when she does she isn’t really asked about Destinys Child.

    Darker colored black women have a harder time than light colored black women, and Beyonce looks more white than black to me, so no I don’t agree that it’s exciting for young girls of color. Beyonce does not represent the black population so why is it that she is always getting these opportunities and getting praised for it. Just because 1 black women is doing doesn’t mean it’s opening doors for others.

      If Beyonce doesn’t represent black women then neither does Icki Nicki. She looks like a bleached whale with ass injections.

      • Beam Me Up Scotty August 9, 2018

        No one is praising Nicki saying she does represent black women. People act like Beyonce is the second coming of Christ. And Beyonce is looking pretty bleached herself.

      • KillMonger Was Right (Tyler) August 9, 2018

        Beyonce is good. Dont come for her when you stan for someone who supports a child molestor.

    • Beam Me Up Scotty August 9, 2018

      It’s getting old. She worked with him on a song, but that does not mean she supports pedophilia. Beyonce I’m sure has made some questionable decisions in her career. I don’t have the receipts, but I’m sure Google will continue to be my friend.

      Skin color is actually SECONDARY.

      Lighter skin often comes with LIGHTER Voices too… It’s genetic across the board not just skin tone. Then thirdly you have more European facial features.

      Whitney was an exception while Jennifer Hudson and Kelly fail.

      • You Make No Sense August 10, 2018

        This comment makes absolutely no sense. I recognized everything that you typed as words, but you failed to make connection with their meanings.

        You had one job in this comment section, and you did not come through. It’s laughable.

        Anyway, I’m looking forward to see what Kelly does next. She is extremely beautiful, and very talented — She’s a bombshell! I need more material from her.

    • Rasputia Latimore August 10, 2018

      Beyonce looks black to me. Rihanna looks black too. You trippin.

  3. Nina August 9, 2018

    Actually it’s not true. Kelly is more representative of the girls of color. Beyoncé is biracial kinda white girl. Even the white girls want to look like her.

    • Rasputia Latimore August 10, 2018

      Lights in black is not biracial unless one of the parents is outright not black. Bey is black. Look at the housewives og potomac for example. Over half the women are lighter than Bey on that shoe buy they are black.

    Kelly shut up, and get in the studio promote an album to it’s full potential and have beyonce speak up for u for once, always co signing for beyonce, she ain’t thinking about you, you can’t even do a 50 state tour, look as long as Kelly and her husband have a seat at the carters table and do those mini reunions when Bey calls her and Michelle to perform she is A ok with being mediocre and just making it

    • Nina August 9, 2018

      You know how to speak truth Bella.

    Poor Kelly, always complimented on looks body and skin but never Talent Success or Status

    Poor Kelly….All Beyonce did from the beginning after Destiny’s Child is Copied, Claudette Ortiz singing voice(City High 2001), Amerie’s style and ordered for Toni Braxton song( for Crazy in Love 2003) before she even could use it; to get the recognition to start off of in making a name for herself. Then when Beyondfake crossed-over, she was bleached clean for Cover shoots like her name was beyki. Now she representing “women of Color” afer she got embarrassed from getting ghost on people who was once beneath her before she got cheated on. You can’t make this sh!t up. Kelly I know you got the talent, your charisma show it.

    • DIABETES UNBOTHERED 🍰 August 9, 2018

      crazy in love is lyrically a Dance version of a song Bey write for Survivor album (Dangerously in love). Also Amerie copied the iconic CIL with One Thing… No artist was using live instrumentation in that era like bey was. And vocally bey crafts her own vocal style for each song/album. AND as far as bleaching, your just jealous your dark skin and not white like bey 😂

  7. Tori August 9, 2018

    Kelly didn’t find this offensive? She did a piece for Vogue as well and they still asked about Beyonce?

  8. ??? August 9, 2018

    lmaoo girl bye bye, that cover was nothing but the bargain basement version of Rihannas cover and that’s all little girls of color or anybody else sees lmfaoooo😂😂😂

  9. GlitterDoll August 9, 2018

    What about Rihanna, Michelle Obama, Jennifer Hudson, Oprah, Lupita…? Beyonce is not the first black woman to be on the cover of Vogue….

    • DanYiel Iman August 10, 2018

      Nobody said she was, it seems her HATERS WILL BASH ANYTHING ANYONE SAYS ABOUT 🗣BEYONCÉ, it was a group Tenitra & Kelendria all we’re apart of DESTINY CHILD’S success!!

  10. Messy miya August 10, 2018

    Kelly right in beyonce face and Bey still ain’t thinking about her

  11. ~The Arcade~ August 10, 2018

    Yawn… When is she gonna stop being her beard already? Btw Kelly the “young girls of color” quote is inaccurate. The end!
