    Kelly looks like Jhud in tie picture!! Anyway, Kelly needs to just get a real job and apply to be Beyonce’s backup singer, because Ummmm her music career was flushed when Density Child ended, and thats not hating that is being real!!

  5. COKE April 13, 2011

    Kelly is way more beautiful than J.Hud. Please, gurl.

    @Sam —

    My thoughts? ..Well, since you must pry, wasn’t it Kelly Rowland who said that Orlando Bloom was/is (and I’ll quote her) “the world’s most handsome man”..?? My point being, to see her in a love scene (in a video) with Nelly is…”less-than credible!”

    Kelly Rowland has ZERO talent! Kelly Rowland isn’t any better than Rihanna – and that’s saying alot, while not saying much! 30-something Kelly Rowland will ALWAYS be Beyonce’s X-back-up singer!

    …Beyonce’s X-back-up singer offers NOTHING in the way of singing, dancing, stage-presence, nor showmanship! I don’t care for her, and I’ll advise any heterosexual black man to do the same!

    (Sam, you did ask, didn’t you?)

    X,Y,”and Z” — OUT…!!!

    Go Kelly. Buying the song today. Hating Kelly is not going to stop her. It’s only gonna motivate her. I have never seen so many people hate someone for no reason. It show who you are from the inside, Beyonce and Kelly are both talented artists. You don’t have to hate one to like the other. I love them both.

  18. X,Y,”and Z” April 13, 2011

    (..think…we’ve seen THIS movie before….)

    Beyonce’s X-back-up singer, 30-something-year old Kelly Rowland, offers you nothing but “cute, (supposedly) fashion-forward chocolate-fashionistaism”

    She can’t sing. She can’t dance. She has NO idea/concept/notion of/regarding “stage presence..!!”

    But we’ve ‘seen Kelly Rowland before.’ Have we not? We’ve saw her WITH more showmanship/dancing skills — Ciara..!!

    YOUNGER, FAR-MORE talented, cuter/statuesque – Ciara, offered us LOADS MORE than Beyonce’s 30-something-year old X-back-up singer, no? If Ciara had the difficult time, that she had, what do you think will become of Beyonce’s FAR-lesser talented, FAKE, 30-something-year old X-back-up singer???

    (…Exactly…) Don’t even waste you time: ignore her. She’ll return to Europe and continue to be some European’s bedwarmer – not that I care; I just don’t want to have her shoved in front of my face on a daily basis!!

    @LAX re: 10:07 pm —

    Real talk – Real talk, I had to re-read what you wrote 3X…

    1.)I think the term/word you’re looking for is “mange” (adj: mangy).
    2.)”KELLY AND RI SAYS FOR YOU TO KISS WHAT THEY TWIST AND THEY DON’T MEAN THEIR WRIST.” <– 0_o Now THIS is scary! Rihanna can't read a calendar, and was recently pictured, while on tour in Israel – sitting by a hotel pool, having a VERY public…"accident"..!!
    3.)"LEAVE KELLY & RIHANNA ALONG U S*** HEAD" <– You're anxious and excited as you type, aren't you, 'LAX'…??
    4.)"your ugly STUMP DOWN HOPE TO DIE LOWLIFE GUTTER ASS." <– ??? (..Priceless….)

    I usually respond in, no-less than, 3-5 minutes, but I’m SERIOUSLY having a difficult time in reading/understanding your writing. It’s not the use of all UPPER CASE (which is annoying enough). It’s NOT the misspelled words (this IS after all a blog and we, all of us, make mistakes). But it’s the logic (or lack-thereof) and near-lethal discombobulation that leaves me short of breath and guessing.

    WHY ARE YOU YELLING? STOP IT! You DO want me, and others, to read what you type, no? Why are you so angry, ‘LAX’..?? I mean, let’s talk – you and I, K?….

    ‘LAX’, Kelly Rowland is OVER 30-years old. Kelly Rowland has as much (or as little) talent as Rihanna. Neither of them can sing, dance, write, nor understands showmanship! They’re both studio-made/stylists-created gimmicks!

    Kelly Rowland brings nothing new to the game — we’ve ALL seen this already: wig/weave/big hair, layer-upon-layers of foundation – coats-upon-coats of bronzer/toner – heavily synthesized auto-tuned gimmickry…!!
    At the very least, Ciara was model-material, and she KNEW/UNDERSTOOD how to manipulate a stage! Ciara has talent! If there’s anyone who YOU should support, it should be her, NOT the likes of OLD, TIRED, NO-TALENT, FAKE Gimmickry – Kelly Rowland (Rihanna).

  45. Angela Wesley April 14, 2011

    XYZ, you don;t know what your talking about if you Kelly doesn’t have talent. That is all
    they did when she was in DC. Caria might can dance better than Kelly but her singing
    is not that good. To those people who say noone is checking for Kelly obviciously
    you and Beyonce.

  46. Aubrey Beyince Harper April 14, 2011

    I say let the haters talk and go on there rant about how Beyonce coming back (which i’m excited about) but other then that I’m a true fan love Kelly Rowland now and forever same as Bey and I love me some Rihanna too. These people comparing her to others and then saying she can’t sing um I she can if she was in Destiny’s child I think she can if she made it as a solo career even though yes her Album didn’t go to number 1 like I hope I still like her I don’t have to call anybody names and with the whole b**** thing why anybody going to call somebody that she is not a dog I don’t see as one people like @x,y&z is a person likes to get a rise out of you wants you to defend yourself so he can say more stuff about you and your favorite artist he doesn’t like but thats most people anyway shrug him off and just write your comment keep supporting your artist my girl kels,bey,rih support and don’t worry about fools like him cause just like he say its an opinion everybody has a right even though if you don’t have nothing nice to say don’t say it at all he just bashes artist but since they don’t give a f*** why should us fans do I’m doing more to help her out or him out not what this opinionated person says I don’t care I say my comment and i’m out

  47. Aubrey Beyince Harper April 14, 2011

    @X,Y&Z

    Don’t like the Artist
    Have a seat with the rest of the waiting for her and fans to give a f***

  48. theman April 14, 2011

    Kelly will be successful her single is already doing well, move on people with nothing imporatnt to say. Success is on her side with this new material.

  49. Chloe April 14, 2011

    My question is why do so many people have Wal-Mart syndrome.Why do you have to only support one artist. Why can’t some people who are Beyonce fans support Kelly as well. Kelly is a beautiful girl and she deserves the success. Jeez some people devote way too much time to negativity.

    Now, I’ve been honest (really, I’ve tried my best and have been only nice), but I see you’re all resorting to underhanded tactics: using my name to post.

    Do you ‘Kelly Rowland fans/supporters’ want ME to devote my time and ENDLESS ENERGIES to REALLY ‘going-in on’ your fav: Beyonce’s 30-something NO-talent, FAKE, WHITE-PENIS LOVIN’, X-back-up singer?

    I can, if you continue; I WILL if you don’t stop…!!

    Do you REALLY want me to go from blog-to-blog ‘going-in on’ Beyonce’s ZERO-Talent 30-something_year-old X-back-up singer, as I did Rihanna?

    Listen to me, I CAN AND WILL find stuff/info – BASED IN TRUTH – that’ll, at the very least, give pause and have folks second-guessing as to why they should support Kelly Rowland – DON’T TEST ME…!!!

    Kelly Rowland – as much as Rihanna was(and still is) – is what’s known as a “target rich environment…!!” It wouldn’t take much for me to “launch-into her,” and dismantle/derail this re-introduction of her to Urban America!

    …DON’T TEMPT ME…!!! (this’ll be your final waning/advisory…)

    @COB re: 10:18 am —

    But neither you, nor the rest of Beyonce’s 30-something year old no-talent X-back-up singer’s fans/supporters, have yet to address my comments: “why support Kelly Rowland, when we have younger, FAR-MORE TALENTED, model-material Ciara?” What about Teyanna Taylor? She can sing, dance, act, write, and knows far-more about stage-presence than Beyonce’s 30-something year old No-talent X-back-up singer.

    Oh, and COB, this…”revelation” regarding Ciara OVER Beyonce’s 30-something year old X-back-up singer is now even giving YOU pause. You’re now scrambling to find ways to differentiate Beyonce’s 30-something year old X-back-up no-talent singer from the obviously more talented Ciara/Teyana Taylor!

    COB, it won’t take much for me to “place this seed of doubt” on the different blogs, water it with some hyperbole, and watch it tangle-up and take-down/lay waste, your concerted efforts to re-introduce Beyonce’s 30-something year old X-back-up no-talent singer to Urban America…

    COB, you’re at my mercy (I just returned from the Islands, where I was on vacation. While there, I learned this ‘old-head saying’…) you’re “Under Heavy Manners”; tread lightly..

  60. candy April 14, 2011

    at XYZ i am worried, do you not have work or school or something to keep you occupied, sitting behind your computer and threatening to go round blogs to encourage people not to support an artist is to be frank quite worrisome, if you don’t like her music then don’t buy it , you don’t need to be running around trying to seek relevance by spewing hate, those are some of the signs of mental issues, i think you should relax, take your drugs and look for something positive to take up your time. this kind of attitude can have no positive impact on your life.

    these artists don’t know you, they work hard and have enough money to enjoy their life, i advise that you look for something else to do to earn a living .

  61. dblog April 14, 2011

    Seriously guys….. XYZ or watever he or she calls itself is an attention seeking w**** and obviously gets off by the attention you’re give it. We all know Kelly Rowland can sing just as good as Beyonce , why bother responding to it? The vulgar comments on how he loves to gag on c**** and is a s*** is a big indication that you can’t take this person serious.

    On a positive note Kellys single MOTIVATION is out on iTunes…. Go Support!

  62. Chaz April 14, 2011

    I will be buying it today!

  63. Licious April 14, 2011

    Her career is over? The only promo she had for this song was 106 & Park. Yesterday Motivation was at #27 on Itunes Chart. Now it sits pretty at #23 on iTunes. Her single isn’t even on the Home-Page on iTunes!! Kelly is here!! Perseverance pays off! And Beyonce and Kelly ain’t got no beef so stop acting like they do!!!

  64. Myrl22 April 14, 2011

    #Motivation is #33 on Billboard R&B/HipHop. Keep Supporting our girl. 2011 is her year and we “Her fans” (not those who follow her just to hate on her) need to buy the single on iTune everytime we encounter haters comments. For example: for every negative comment FYnZ wrote, we Her Fans should go to iTune and buy #Motivation.

    Let the haters motivate us. Imma count all the negative comments on this blog and buy the single that many time. it just $0.99. What is a 5bucks spent to support your fav artist??? If all of her fan do just that, the hater will be put to shame without wasting our breast reponding to thier negativity and trying to justify our artist talents.

    GO KELLY!!!!!!!!!! #mOTIVATION STRAIGHT TO #1…..

  65. X,Y,”and Z” April 14, 2011

    @MRRL22 re:7:38 pm —

    You’re a true believe – good for you! …But don’t you think your efforts will be ‘better spent’ supporting a younger (NOT 30-something year-old), statuesque/model-material, FAR-MORE TALENTED, stage-worthy/ready Ciara/Teyanna Taylor?

    Don’t you think ‘that Window has closed’ and Beyonce’s 30-something year-old X-back-up singer is now lost to “last-decade’s history…??”

    It’s like…I just don’t get it..!! (Real Talk) I see Kelly Rowland, and I immediately Wonder…WHY? Why support her, when we have a FAR-MORE TALENTED Ciara/Teyanna Taylor..?

    Ciara and Teyanna Taylor are FAR-MORE TALENTED..!! They’re both younger – BY FAR, giving them LOTS of room to grow – and for us to grow with them…!!! Beyonce’s 30-something X-back-up singer is a fraud: a phony big-hair-foundation-layering, toner/evener-weighted gimmick..!!

    Long-story short? …Yes – It’s YOUR $0.99; your sanity; your reality, and your time that’s being misused/abused by a HUCKSTER-FRAUD…

    X,Y,”and Z” — OUT…!!
