Watch: Kelly Rowland Sings Happy Birthday To Dwayne Wade

Published: Monday 16th Jan 2012 by Rashad

‘No badder b*tch on the planet who represents the chocolate better than Miss Kelly Rowland’.

Words lent by famed actress Gabrielle Union at her boo Dwayne Wade‘s 30th bday bash in Miami recently.  The gathering, which saw hip hop hitmakers T.I., Common, Rick Ross, and more in attendance, found its highlight when ‘Lay It On Me’ singer Kelly Rowland laid her vocals over a ‘Happy Birthday’ performance.  Needless to say,  even in January the Miami Heat star was feeling the heat!

See all the action after the jump:


When following such a grand introduction, its imperative that one not disappoint and disappoint Kelly did not!  The visual surfaces just days after ‘Vision of Love’ diva Mariah Carey sang the praises of the ‘Here I Am’ hitmaker for her ‘Fantasy’ tribute at this year’s BET Honors.  Said to be putting the finishing touches on her fourth studio LP with Rico Love, here’s hoping the diva’s next musical ventures motivates as much awe as that exhibited by the honoree of this birthday bash!

    @Gabrielle Union –

    “No badder b**** on the planet, who represents the chocolates, better than Ms. Kelly Rowland”…?! <–o~0 *2000-Yard Stare*

    I'm sorry, Gabrielle, but you're horribly mistaken!

    "Badder b****"..?! (Meh..)

    ..When you're given T-H-E "highest of profiles", that as a sitting judge/mentor on U.K. X-Factor – and now, only after some 10-weeks (debuting/peaking at #46), your CD has NOW fallen-off the U.K. Top-100 chart – when it hadn't even placed on the World CD Top-40 chart.. http://www.theofficialcharts.com/albums-chart/ mediatraffic(dotde)/albums.htm

    ..When you're quoted: "Orlando Bloom, and men who look like him, are THE most beautiful (of men)." Then I'm sorry Gabrielle, your fave, the 30-something-year-old Kelly Rowland, isn't the "baddest b**** to represent the chocolate."

    Gabrielle, with the aforementioned numbers yet-again restated – "WE", the 'discretionary money-spending' public have now absolutely spoken: "WE CAN'T FIND ANYTHING THE SLIGHTEST BIT NOTEWORTHY, ENTERTAINING, NOR EVEN REDEEMABLE IN YOUR FAVE! And the more you (her friends in the entertainment industry) continue to force-feed her down our collective throats, the more pronounced our collective 1000-yard stares, and 'gag effect' will continue to be!

    “HOW CAN KELLY BE CONFIDENT WITH HER SKIN WHEN SHE CLEARLY DOES NOT DATE ANYONE THAT LOOKS LIKE HER SKIN COLOR”

    ..I don’t think I, nor anyone else, could’ve said it any better!!

    Kelly Rowland will never date, let alone worse (to her), have a child with a man of a similar complexion to her’s (Gasp! Clutch the pearls). And that’s only in fear of that child having a “chocolaty” complexion.

    And you’ll find that it’s the socioeconomic group, be them ethnic, racial, whatever, that ‘keeps to themselves/in-between themselves’ who has the…’power’ and money!

    Do you see those little pictures beside each blogger’s name? ..Exactly!!

    And it’s ONLY now, because we have a different opinion than yours; because everyone sees the ‘truth and failure’ – of the 30-something-year-old Kelly Rowland – that you now accuse us of “comment rigging”..?!

    (Meh..) Edward, it’s “obvious”: 30-something-year-old Kelly Rowland is a failure, and you’re a complete idiot!!

    “THE REASON WHY KELLY GOES TO THE WHITE MAN IS BC BLACK MEN AINT REALLY CHECKING FOR HER LIKE THAT (I MEAN THE ONES IN THE GAME) THEY WANT THE LIGHT SKINNED CHICK AND KELLY HAS BEEN IN THE GAME LONG ENOUGH TO KNOW THAT SHE IS NOT WANTED BY THE RICH BLACK MEN LIKE THAT”

    I’m afraid I’ll have to disagree with you on this one. If you look at all the high-profile black men, the majority of them date and marry women who look like them, and are of the SAME skin tone AS THEY ARE!

    Look at Gabby-U and D’Wade, LaBron and Sav’. Chris Bosh doesn’t count, EVERYONE knows that he’s GAAAAYY, and that marriage is a sham!

    But look at your brilliant comment (@9:47 am). Now, you’re from/in Houston, Texas, and you met her once. You saw that she had a funky, nasty, STAAANK attitude. If you can see this, then can you just imagine what the black men, men who look like her, have to go through? That’s why they don’t want to be around her, EXACTLY BECAUSE of that “COCKY”, nasty attitude of hers.
    I”m sure this is why she and Roy Williams didn’t get married. I’m sure that’s what turned him off: Kelly Rowland’s “COCKY,” “I’m better than you” attitude.

    @”I’m very rich B****”

    re: “She had to use some of her own money”

    Yes! She said that right here on TGJ! She said it during an interview with Sam. Brb.. Let me find the link to that interview and video..

    ..K, I’m back.. Here’s the link: http://thatgrapejuice.net/2011/11/grape-juice-interviews-kelly-rowland-3/ FF to 8:02 minute.
    She said “I’m doing this myself.”
    Sam then asks “You’re funding it yourself?”
    “Yes,” she replies “I’m funding it myself.”

    And NO, I agree with you: she’s NOT currently making any money for her Label, Universal/Motown. It took Colombia records, only after TWO failed albums: 2002’s “Simply Deep” and 2007’s “Ms. Kelly”, for them to finally drop her. But I suspect, after seen her given the “choicest of podiums: sitting Judge/Mentor on U.K. X-Factor”, and then seeing her fail so badly, not only here, in the U.S., but also THERE – in Europe/The U.K. – I think they’re now quietly arranging Kelly Rowland’s exit from Universal/Motown.
    I mean, after being seen on one of T-H-E hottest Summer 2011 tours, CBreezy’s ‘F.A.M.E Tour’, and then weekly-seen, as a sitting Judge/Mentor Of Talent on U.K. X-Factor, and for her to fail as badly as she had?! Would you invest in her? I know I wouldn’t!!

    Kelly Rowland is a failure!! 2002’s ‘Simply Deep’ was given much hype and serious funding, and it failed to return that HUGE investment in its creation and marketing. The same for 2007’s “Ms. Kelly”; another “K-RO Trade-Mark Fail”!!

    ..Trust: she’s FINISHED! For all I care, she, and her skinny-girl cottage-cheese thighs, her ‘beginning-on-the-top-of-her-head’ hairline, and her no-talent flat-a** can go BACK to Europe and eat ALL the white man’s a** to her heart’s content! Did you see CBreezy kiss her on stage? I just hope his current GF had him wash-out his mouth and properly deloused!

    @”IM VERY RICH B****” re: January 17, 2012 at 11:43 am —

    But that’s EXACTLY what I’ve BEEN saying: Kelly Rowland is pure HYPE! There is nothing to back-up/substantiate all that hype! When you hear all that hype, then you finally buy her CD, then you buy a concert ticket – you’re then seriously disappointed! She’s pure hype!

    Listen, I’m NO Beyonce fan – F*** NO! But you know what? Listen to Beyonce when she did her duet with Luther Vandoss. It was sad; just horrible. Now, FF to her NOW ‘2011 singing’ – it’s like comparing ‘day to night’! What I’m trying to say is that she’s improved as a singer. She’s not T-H-E “best”, “pure” female dancer. That’ll probably be Ciara. But “on the whole” she’s offers “T-H-E” best stage show of A-L-L the female performers – BAR NONE!

    ..That (giving birth to a pillow..) b**** knows how to work a stage..!!

    Am I a fan? Will you ever find me buying her CD? F*** NO! But Beyonce is a bad b****! Listen, Lady Gaga, in only 2-short years, have now run-upon the scene and took half of Beyonce’s stage. But that “Gaga-Beyonce” discussion/argument is for another time. Now, we’re discussing “growth”, or lackthereof, the 30-something-year-old Kelly Rowland.

    ..Me?! I don’t think there’s anything to grow on/from! I think what we saw back in the ‘DC days’, what we saw during 2002’s ‘Simply Deep’, and what we NOW see in 2011’s ‘Here I am’ is what we’ll see come whatever-whenever from Kelly Rowland.
    ..Listen, it’s exactly that…”lack of ‘IT'” that kept her, and Michele Williams, in DC. Matthew Knowles didn’t want Beyonce to have any competition. He wanted HIS daughter to get “ALL the shine”. If I were he, I’d want only the same for my child too. This is EXACTLY why he got rid of Latoya Luckett. She has..’IT’, and she was a direct threat to Beyonce – so she had to go! (*POOF*) No more Latoya..!!!! Matthew Knowles ALREADY knew what we’re only now beginning to figure out: Kelly Rowland, and Michele Williams are only good for/as Life-sized cardboard-cutouts for Beyonce to sing and dance around – THEY’RE BOTH GOOD FOR NOTHING MORE, AND WILL AMOUNT TO NOTHING MORE..!!

    I mean, I read (and I read them ALL) the comments regarding Kelly Rowland and her “career”. It’s like..like..the “Ground Hog Day” movie: same s***, different day! You don’t believe me? NO?! Well go back and look at the sales for/from 2002’s ‘Simply Deep’ up until now, 2011’s ‘Here I am’. Same s*** – different year: ABSOLUTE FAILURE..!!!

    Go back and look at her very-last ‘X-Factor Germany’ performance. Do you see the OTHER German Judge/Mentor’s reactions? That bearded dude was forcing his applause. That female judge was like “What the f***! Who let this no-talent b**** in Germany.” And, to make matters worse, look at how, after that performance, how that host dismissed her from that stage. It was like “Yea, b****. Now that you’re done – get the f*** off!” It was sad. Real talk?! I was cringing during and after watching it!! I actually felt bad for her..!! YUP!!

    In any case, sorry for the long-winded reply..

    Real Talk: Why the name-calling/anger/disappointment/resentment..?? Do YOU really think we’re both “hating”..?? This ain’t no “Anti-Kelly Conspiracy”. I mean, I don’t want you to “hate” Beyonce. To tell the truth, that recent “IMMACULATE CONCEPTION”, and giving birth to a pillow s*** was/is just pure hilarity!

    ..I F*****’ LOVED IT (hand me a spoon, tie my bib..)!!

    ..And trust, when Harvey Levin finally ‘pulls the trigger’ on the secret/insider info he NOW has sitting in his office safe, it’ll then be make ‘Knowles-Carter’ the absolute laughing-stock of/for the ENTIRE World to see!

    TRUST: Harvey Levin is the devil, and the devil has disciples and demons EVERYWHERE!! He already knows that pregnancy was a fraud. He NOW has the pictures, sworn statements from all the “inside players”, and is just now waiting to “blow-down” ‘House-of-Dereon’. Harvey Levin now OWNS Beyonce, Jay-Z. You see, if you’re a Beyonce fan, you should be afraid – VERY AFRAID! That picture TMZ just ran, the one of Beyonce’s Hospital suite, that was only a “show across the bow”. Harvey Levin/TMZ knows ALL the dirt on that “pregnancy”. Beyonce and Jay-Z thinks Harvey is a friend – NO SUCH THING! The devil has NO friends! With the 2012 Presidential Elections now ‘in full-swing’ it’s only now just a matter of time. Harvey Levin is a racist, and looks to “take shots” at Obama from whichever proxy/facsimile he can find. Oh, and I remember those ‘TMZ/Jay-Z Chris Brown Swine Flu jokes’.

    ..Time for Jay-Z to get a taste of his own medicine: “..all the king’s horses and all the king’s men, couldn’t put humpty back-together again..!!”

    Me: Hate Beyonce?! No! I’m just enjoying all the “slight-of-hand”, “make-believe”, and coming punch-line to hold any “hate” in MY heart! ; – 9 (wink)

    The only thing that irks me is why everything gotta be about skin tone. chocolate and all.
    Black people can’t even call themselves dark skin. They try to soothe it to chocolate. Kelly is dark skin. Chocolate isn’t a skintone. I guess they believe the word dark skin is a cuss.
    Stop the I am chocolate skin tone and what not. If u are brown skin, then you are dark. Stop deceiving urselves with the chocolate term.

    “Call me what you want but the truth still remains that you and your friend @Im Very Rich B**** (Who name put’s the icing on the cake that their lame AF) are haters!”

    So you do NOW concede that it’s NOT “one person” logging on and posting over and over, yes?

    “It’s one thing to say you don’t like someone, but to try and consistently persuade others into thinking negative about some one’s hustle is pathetic and dumb.”

    When have I EVER tried to “persuade” you into thinking one way, or another? NEVER! That’s when. What I have done was to pose question after question/fact after fact, only to be then answered with riddles and slights.

    (Just the..)FACT(s) no “hate”, “shade”, nor liberties with the facts:

    1.) Didn’t her, solo debut, 2002’s “Simply Deep” disappoint, given the huge promotional/marketing budget it was so then blessed with, then only returning some 600K U.S.? And mind you, this release came shortly after the news that DC was to disband. Such news, you’d think, would give any of DC’s members all the “good will” sentiment you’d ever imagine a CD would need to then set sale records. OH NO! Not your fave! She STILL found a way to spill that water: only 2-Million WW sales!

    2.) Each for your fave’s coming releases then saw additional failures: 2007’s “Ms Kelly” saw 86K first-week, and only, to date, some 200K in-total U.S. retail. WW sales peaked at 1-Million.

    3.) FF to 2011’s “Here I am”. Its ‘first-week U.S. retail’ was 77K (seems your fave can’t ‘first-week retail’ more than 100K, you ever notice that?). To date, it’s moved LESS-THAN 200K U.S. retail, and only debuted at #56 on the U.K. Top-100. It’s since, only after some 10-weeks, fell-off said U.K. Top-100 CD chart. ‘Here I am’ never even charted on the WW Album Top-40 chart!

    Now, 2011 saw good-luck smile upon your fave: being blessed with a gig as a judge/mentor of talent on a weekly-seen U.K. TV show that was sure to be one of THE most watched: “U.K. X-Factor”. She’d then be given access to 15-Million weekly viewers..!! Such exposure, you’d imagine, would be a ‘WET DREAM’ to most performers/artists – be they already established, or up-and-coming. Most would leverage THAT exposure into chart-topping/record-setting CD sales, and serious ‘Brand advancement’. NO – not your Kelly! She managed to f***-up that cup of coffee. We won’t even mention her being prominently placed on CBreezy’s F.A.M.E tour. Me?! Well, personally, I think she STOLE from Chris, Tyga, T-Pain and Big Sean. Why? Well, because the performers on-tour get paid from the sales of tickets, yes? Well, here in the U.S., where they toured, her aforementioned CD sales were just abysmal. So if her “fans” (all seven of them) aren’t…”motivated” to buy her CD, what makes you think they’d find the funds to buy a concert ticket that costs 3-4-5X as much as a CD?

    ..Long-story short, as far as her being on that tour, and getting paid…?? Kelly Rowland’s a BUM! Kelly Rowland’s a FREELOADER! Your fave is a bag-lady/homeless person!

    “However, It is you who contribute to the word “HATER” and without people like you, threads like this won’t be as interesting and people like Kelly’s SUCCESS (a term you may not be familiar with) wouldn’t be as sweet at the end of the day. “30-something” Kelly Rowland getting money, tighten up!” <–O~o ?????????????

    I'm not sure how someone can open their mouths and have such gibberish come tumbling out: I'm a "hater". I've only "contributed the word hater", but I make threads like this "interesting"?! ..And, I'm not "familiar with the term SUCCESS"..?! You and your "knock-head logic" is well-above me. You're either the smartest human being ever to walk planet earth, or maybe, more than likely, you make it up as you go along!

    Let me close by saying/stating the more-than obvious: I seriously doubt your fave will be seen, come the new 2012 season, on "X-Factor U.K.". I just can't see Simon Cowell rewarding such obvious failure with yet ANOTHER chance to degrade, diminish, and embarrass the 'X-Factor Brand'. The BBC's "Strictly Come Dancing" is now taking serious market-share from X-Factor. And from what I'm understanding, there's yet to be another same-formatted type of show coming to U.K. TV.
    Time for Simon to "clean house" and put the trash out on the curb! So what will 2012 hold for your fave? Well, no-more X-Factor U.K., and the coming reality that she'll find herself, yet-again, without a label..!!

    JUST by chance, look at what I found..

    I TOLDJASO…!! There is NO WAY ON EARTH – ABOVE IT – NOR BELOW, that Simon Cowell is going to have her back for 2012. Not after “Here I am” did so poorly. To have her continue for another season is to further deteriorate the ‘X-Factor Brand’: how can you have a sitting judge/mentor whose CD debuted at #46, then fell off the U.K. Top-100 CD chart in only some 10-weeks? If she would have gotten another contract, it’d have said that Simon Cowell rewards failure – Simon Cowell didn’t get to where he now is by “rewarding” failure..!!

    So now?! Well ‘now’, now all the ‘spin machines’ kick into high gear and we’ll all soon read and hear that it was “A-L-L Kelly’s ideal”.

    Somewhere, Matthew Knowles is rubbing his hands, pouring a drink, and twisting the ends of his mustache: “I told ya so”…

    @”I’m very rich b****” re: Jan 18th, 12:32 pm —

    You know, we’d better NOT say toooooo much, the “Rowdogs” will start to growl, bark, and maybe attack the BOTH of us: “LIARS”, “IGNORANT”, “PATHETIC”,”DELUDED”, “DREAMING”, and “CONSTIPATED” “HATERS”.. remember?

    But then again, with “Here I am” (NOT), now fallen-off the ‘U.K. Top-100 CD chart’, in only 10-short weeks: (Meh..) “Rowdog’s bark is FAR-worse than Rowdog’s bite”..!! Yes?

    So now, the question is, what will Universal/Motown do with her? I’m SURE they’re not at-all pleased with this news (bout her NOT being on 2012 X-Factor). More to the point: I’m sure they’re now just overflowing with anxiety! If I were Universal/Motown records, I’d look to have her sign a 360-Contract. Not unlike what Def Jam now has Rihanna signed to. But the thing is, unlike Rihanna, Kelly Rowland has no other “lucrative income streams” to ‘tap into’. She can’t/won’t sell concert tickets.

    ..Listen, If her fans weren’t…”motivated” enough to buy her CD, they’re surely won’t buy a concert ticket that costs some 3-4-5X as much as that CD.
    So now?! Well, now, she’s forced to “self-finance” her music career. Rihanna had to do the very same in about 2007, when it was then revealed, in 2008, that she had only $20K to HER name, remember that bit of revelation..??

    There’s just…”something” about Kelly Rowland that doesn’t…”connect”. Maybe it was/is what you’d alluded to in your previous comment: her NOT being attracted to men of her-same..’chocolaty’ complexion. She can’t hide it (not saying that she had), but that “not-attracted-to/no-attraction-for” comes pouring-through the camera lens, her person, and also while she’s onstage. You know, I actually read, on another blog, one that fiercely reps for Kelly Rowland, the same thing: she had ZERO chemistry/connection with the dancers in that ‘Lay it on me’ video; ZERO! When I read that, I almost fell off my stability ball. Real Talk!!

    So the 30-something-year-old Kelly Rowland has no ‘fan base’, HERE in the U.S. She, as it’s now revealed, HAD NO SUCH “BASE” in Europe/The U.K.

    “But what about ‘Motivation’,” you now ask? Well, “Motivation” wasn’t a Kelly Rowland song – per se. NO! It was/is a Lil’ Wayne song. And what’s more, it took ALL of 5-LOOOOONG Months to go platinum. And for a “hit single” that’s an eternity. That song was force-fed down our collective throats. So-much-so that we eventually “relented and coughed-up” that $1.50 (or whatever) and clicked on that mouse.

    (Sigh..) “Bad time” to be the 30-something-year-old Kelly Rowland.. Bad time..

    @”I’m very rich b****” re: Jan 18th, 5:05 pm —

    “I had no idea about Riri only having $20K.. That does not even sound right”

    Here, have a read. Just remember: Everything is NOT always the way it seems, and the “TRUTH” is ALWAYS stranger than fiction:

    Here, here’s the link: “http://www.celebitchy.com/13684/rihanna_only_has_20k_to_her_name_claims_ex_business_manager/” Now, have a read:

    “Rihanna’s now ex-business manager Patricia Willliams has been recently fired as she says “for no good reason, all in ignorance” and is “livid” with Rihanna & her management company Rebel One’s decision to fire her. Rihanna recently met with her ex-biz manager to check on her funds and was shocked to see that almost all her money was missing. Rih-Rih instantly accused Willliams of “stealing her money.”

    “It’s not my fault that she only has $20,000 to her name.”

    “I showed her all the paperwork and tried to explain to her the circumstances but she wouldn’t listen. She called me all sorts of horrible names and stormed off. I now feel compelled to share with the world the background story as I will not allow my name to be slandered”

    “The Barbados born singer has had four back-to-back albums, including a re-release since her debut of “Pon De Replay” in 2005.According to Willliams, Marc Jordan, manager and owner of Rebel One Management has been taking care of Rihanna’s financial situation with her.

    “Def Jam doesn’t fund Rihanna properly, so Marc uses the money Rihanna makes from third-party endorsements and from tours to fund her album and music videos.” Since 2005, Rihanna has been sponsored by the likes of JC Penny, Samsung, Covergirl, Secret, Venus Breeze etc,. and has gone on two major tours, most recently label-mate Kanye West’s “Glow in the Dark” Tour and with P**** Cat Dolls across Europe.”I don’t want to disrespect Marc’s name. He is a fantastic manager and genuinely believes in Rihanna. But he uses her money to fund her future projects because he believes he can break her in the world-market. Her album sales are not nearly as close to her single sales and he knows that if she is only known as a ’singles artist’ she will only be as good as her last hit. Unfortunately, he didn’t inform his client and I’m receiving the brunt of it…”

    ”The song “Umbrella” was found & Jordan fought again for Rihanna to have it. They shot the video, which CoverGirl funded half of, and the song became a success. When the record label had there meeting with Music Stores across the U.S to order her album for shipment, the number’s weren’t coming in the way that they expected. When the album’s first week numbers came in at less than 150,000, the label was shocked. Def Jam’s President LA Reid was livid! Umbrella was #1 for 11 weeks! Any other artist would have sold way more first week. T-Pain even did better in sales than her that week. Def Jam told Jordan they were no longer funding the album, so Jordan needed money again to pay for music videos ‘Shut Up & Drive’ and ‘Dont Stop The Music’. Almost 250,000 was spent to have those videos created. Plus, an additional 120,000 to shoot ‘Hate That I Love You’. Jordan was noticing that ‘Dont Stop The Music’ was picking up, so her persuaded the label to support it at radio in the U.S and the remaining singles, and they did.””Then came for the repackaging of her album ‘Good Girl Gone Bad’, which is called ‘Good Girl Gone Bad: Reloaded’, that entire project was funded through Rihanna’s money.

    ‘Take A Bow’ was bought through her money, the video was created with her money and so is her most recent video and single ‘Disturbia’. The label didn’t even want to pay a dime for anything! Close to 750,000 was spent on those two songs alone. And now she expects to see money in her account?” Williams states that Jordan, her publicist from well-respected public relations firm 42-West, Alicia Silverman has built alot of hype around Rihanna’s name but the singer has only made “a little bit above a million” and “all of it was spent on making her as big as she is now.”
