    Kelly is such a sweet girl.
    I’m rooting for her big time with this album!

  2. Boricua May 7, 2010

    I’m actually kinda excited to hear her new record.

    Sidebar : its so obvious to me looking at her now that she had a nose job as well as implants…. 🙁

  3. RihannasClit May 7, 2010

    Is it just me, or is this flop looking more and more like Rihanna with each passing day? With her outfits, of course. When it comes to looks, we all know a b**** could never.

  4. RihannasClit May 7, 2010

    @Boricua, ur absolutely right. B**** had a nose job and STILL looks like Mickey Mouse’s anorexic black cousin.

    SMGDH…

    HATERS!!!! RIHANNA? GIVE ME A BREAK…. U NEED SERIOUS HELP!

  7. remmy May 7, 2010

    Hope her the best…tho it ain’t goin down here in the states…she can’t seem to get her FULL shine on here…(and don’t try to blame anyone eles, she can’t sell she can’t sell) oh and the ti thing is a good look but the diddy thing not so much…I think she should be really big but she comes off like david’s back up singer (when she performs live) and I hate that…been in the game too long for that…

    @RIHANNASCLIT- B**** DO YOU REALIZE THAT RIH-TARD’S STYLE IS NOT ORIGINAL AND THAT MOST OF WHAT SHE WEARS COMES FROM GRACE JONES’ CLOSET?

    KELLY ROWLAND HAS BEEN OUT 12 YEARS AND DOESN’T NEED TO PROVE HERSELF TO ANYBODY LET ALONE JACK SOMEBODY ELSE’S STYLE AND/OR LOOK!

    KELLY DID WHAT SOME OTHER PEOPLE WILL NEVER COME CLOSE TO DOING AND THAT IS FIRE THE BAD SEED, HIRE A HERO AND GIVE US WHAT WE KNOW SHE’S CAPABLE OF DOING!

    AT LEAST KELLY DOESN’T NEED HER PARENTS MANAGING HER CAREER OR FINANCES AND AT LEAST HER PARENTS DON’T TRY TO LIVE THROUGH HER LIKE BEYAWNCE’S DOES! EVERY PICTURE BEY TAKES HER PARENTS ARE EITHER IN THE BACKGROUND OR TO THE SIDE OF HER!

    AT LEAST KELLY DOESN’T NEED 50 PRODUCERS WRITING HER ALBUM.

    A wise man once said.

    “as for the critics, tell me I don’t get it
    Everybody can tell you how to do it, they never did it”

    “Truth be told, I had more fun when I was p*** poor
    I’m pissed off, is this what success all about
    A bunch of n***** acting like b****** with big mouths”

    Hov!

  11. Trish May 7, 2010

  21. Black May 7, 2010

    Umm Kelly this album better be off the hook. Cause we already know….. Well nevermind ind ind ey ey ey . Lol

  22. Ghetto Fab May 7, 2010

    The Kelly Rowland Take OVER has begun! I’m glad Kelly Rowland fever hit! If you don’t jump on the bandwagon now, prepared to be left!

  23. Taylor May 7, 2010

    ” UNITY ” by Kelly Rowland is one of her best songs all-time and was never released in North America. One of the most beautiful ballads in recent memory. Can’t wait to hear this one live in 2010 along with Commander <3 <3 – Go Kelly !

  24. Keith May 7, 2010

    Kelly’s record is actually pretty good, and I actually prefer it to ‘Love takes over’.

    I give Kelly the credit in trying something different, instead of trolling out the samey R&B rubbish that too many American artists are putting out currently. All these artists Beyonce, Rihanna, Keri Hilson and a lot of male artists all sound the same. The trouble is that it sells because mosts Americans are tone deaf and their music appeals to the American lack of originality. The only time I liked Beyonce’s music was when it was remixed by the Freemasons and it gave it some drive!!

    Kelly’s record is a little different, and more European sounding and I suspect will do well in Europe and Australasia but not the US as it wont penetrate the wax that lodges in most Americans ears.

    Carry on Kelly, personally I think that you are in the right music genre (dance) and are heading in the right direction.

  25. Gwen May 7, 2010

    Keith I agree. I’m from houston texas and I have never been into dance music. Kelly has open my mind up to different sounds. I appreciate that from her she’s letting her fans know that there’s more than one genre. there’s more than one country. Atleast that’s what she reminded me.

  26. Dave May 7, 2010

    She will slay, end.

  27. Its Me Again May 7, 2010

    I very much wish that her wigs didn’t look so obvious…

  28. Aunt Jackie May 7, 2010

    Awwwww.

    This album will do well internationally no question. I think she’ll surprise people here in the U.S.!

  29. BEYONCE VS. THE WORLD May 7, 2010

  34. loso May 7, 2010

    Kelly will always be beautiful because she is beautiful on the inside. I love her new song and TI would be great on the record. Kelly keep doing you and flock to the people who love you because I sure do and I know everybody else will see your true self. I cant to get Commander on May 18th.

  35. NikkiIsChillin May 7, 2010

    Nice interview. Kelly is very cute!!!

  36. Gucci May 7, 2010

    .Kelly Rowland overload. Can we at least wait until her album comes out before you queens start this massive promotion campaign? She has until September before she’s at risk of another flop. You’re a couple of months early.

    Good interview for the most part…..which is something that I had to start pointing out because contrary to popular belief, some interviews are some people’s kryptonite (see: Chris Brown) …..but she needs to fire that makeup artist STAT.

    I think what @RihannasClit was saying was that this video look that Kelly’s trying to pull off is not original, even though her and her stans swear up and down that it is *side eye* which I too pointed out a couple of times as well. The cover art for her Commander single was beyond fierce but this video look gets a *yawn*. That song is actually starting to grow on me! I heard it in the club over the weekend.

  37. lyric_lee May 7, 2010

    ahhh gucciii – theres my fav person in the world – wassup wit u girl. i for one am lovin ya new energy and i cant wait for the video – seems to be the best yet – the longer shes out the more fierce she becomes and im so ready to set her to take a stand and let ppl know this ms kelly is here!! workk!! plus i know the song sound good as hell on the radio and in the club i know u almost died on me!! how was it?

  38. Gucci May 8, 2010

    @lyric_lee

    Guuuuurl I was working it! 🙂 I like the song. Who knows the video might completely exceed my expectations and I’ll become a Kelly Rowland stan. LOL.
