Kelly Rowland Makes Tearful Plea For Houston Family Privacy

Published: Tuesday 14th Feb 2012 by Rashad

Much like Brandy, Monica, and many other R&B vocalists, the members of Destiny’s Child have career-long, jointly and individually, touted Whitney Houston as their vocal idol.

Now, in the wake of the singer’s passing, Kelly Rowland took to Access Hollywood to share her grief over Houston’s death as well as make pleas for the family’s privacy during the trying time.

    This b**** here… I mean, really, Kelly..???

    (FF to 1:26) Q. “How do you…fill-up your cup?” A. “I have great family and great friends, and incredible people around me who are honest.”

    Here’s what she’s REALLY saying: “I have a really, really, REALLY great PR team – the best! I have everyone feeling sorry for me after I lay my “woe is me: I’m dark-skinned” lament on ’em – even though I ain’t got not one once of talent in my bones. And I also have black gay men just crawling over each other to get at my crusty tampons – I mean: see a fool – use a fool, right? Oh, and I can also have the blogs post some of my “$300-heads-up-call-the-paparazzi” pictures, which makes ALL the fools forget ’bout my recently failed CD, and me getting fired from X-Factor U.K.”

    (FF to 2:25) Q. “What part of her legacy pulls those tears out of your eyes?” A. “As a hero!”

    What she REALLY meant: “Well, Whit is no longer here, I mean, don’t get me wrong – God bless her, but why don’t you ask me ’bout “Motivation” going platinum (let’s not mention the fact that it took over 4-LONG months). So you see, I’m the new Diva Queen..worship ME!”

    (FF to 2:44) “I don’t wanna cry, I wanna be strong for them.”

    *Meh..* Fake, phony, conniving b****! Here’s what she REALLY wanted to say: “I don’t wanna cry, but if Bobby-Kristina would – as Whitney’s casket is lowered into the earth – give my CD a shout-out, I’d then be sure to be pictured “crying fountains in adulation” for her…”OUR” mother and beloved idol..

    (FF to 2:55) “The media should calm down and allow this to be a moment for Bobby-Kristina.”

    But we REALLY know what SHE was thinking: “I mean, Whit is gone – enough already – yes? There’s just NO need to linger in the past, right? Let bygones be..bygones. The media should just calm the hell down and talk about “Motivation” being a platinum seller, though it took 4-LONG months, but who’s counting, right? Oh, and my 4th upcoming CD. Now that’s…”news worthy”..!”

  15. NikkiIsChillin February 14, 2012

    Kelly is right. Let Bobbi Kristina and Cissy Houston grieve in private. Kelly is such a beautiful spirit. Love her . R.I.P. Whitney.

    @chil re: Feb 14, 2012 at 9:41 pm —

    I’ll honestly answer anything you like – and I mean ANYTHING – if you would allow me just one tiny, insignificant, indulgence: change your picture..!!!

    *Meh..* “Something/Statistics”..?! You’re new to this blog, aren’t you? Before your fave got me kicked off Team-Breezy, I was a virtual statistical repository of fact and figures.

    Chil, tell me about yourself – BE HONEST – don’t lie, I’ll know if you’re lying to me..

He loves Kelly so much and idolize her but he always on here talking about her, when heloves her so much and we know it. Lord help him to stop sucking d**** and please get him straight. The fool is also retarted, so Lord please give him wisdom. Kelly Rowland The Next Great Diva!

  21. GLYNNJE February 15, 2012

    @BAA you said it all. i’m ROTFLMFAO

    Kelly is blessed. its sad it fell on her birthday… btw i cant stop watching kelly’s performance of Mariah carey’s fantasy!!!!!!!!! she killed that ishhhh

  22. JohnVidal February 15, 2012

    That was really honest from Kelly Rowland. I totally understand she started to cry cos this is heartbreaking. It´s a shock for us the world to lose Whitney Houston but to poor Bobbi Kristina and to her super mother Cissy… heartbreaking

  23. X,Y,”and Z” February 15, 2012

    @BAA re: Feb 15, 2012 at 3:55 am —

    “Sucking d****”..?!

    Oh, come now – when you’re losing the argument(s), when ALL the facts and figures go against your fave, you THEN resort to these simpleton taunts and quips?!

    “hooked on phonics”..?!

    But this isn’t an English, Grammar, nor Diction class. I don’t care, but since YOU made reference, just a few:

    “idolize” = idolizes
    “he always” = he’s always

    (To continue..) BAA, the facts remain. Your fave had THE largest podium/stage from which to further her brand and sell her CD: 12-15 Million weekly “MOTIVATED” and able U.K./European consumers – as the then sitting X-Factor U.K. sitting judge/mentor. And what did SHE do with that once-in-a-lifetime opportunity? FAILED! That’s what – she FAILED..!!

    ..Matter of a fact, her entire career is based on failure. Kelly Rowland has managed to “FAIL UPWARDS” now for a decade – since the beginning of her solo career.

    My question: how does she do it? How does she so overtly fail so badly, then manage to worm her way BACK into the better graces of those who control record label purse strings to take a chance on her? One BAD album does NOT get one dropped from a label. Especially if you’re as well known as Kelly Rowland. Agreed? So 2007’s ‘Ms. Kelly’ alone shouldn’t have gotten her dropped from Colombia records. Of course not! 2002’s ‘Simply Deep’ was ALSO too, based on ROI, an unmitigated failure. FF to 2011, another Kelly Rowland trade mark: FAILURE!

    Kelly Rowland = FAILURE! Her record/history speaks for itself, and there’s NO amount of your name calling, bitterness, nor conveniently disregarding of the aforementioned easily verifiable facts that’ll change that!!

    Please people, do not read XY and Z’s comments. I just turn a blind eye on them now. He is just out of order! A low life idiot who I honestly believe is mentally unwell.

  26. YOOSONDALOOSE February 15, 2012

    Kelly was very respectful, PEOPLE should be kind she has just died, come on now!

    @Said So re: Feb 15th, 7:15 am —

    “..out of order..” “..low life idiot..” “..mentally unwell..”?!!

    Why the anger? What did I do? What did I say?

    *Meh..* We JUST lost Whitney (and Kelly Rowland is already “dancing on graves”) can’t we ALL just…get along?

    ..I thought that – you thought that – I was that – as I’d thought you were also that – that we were kool!

    Look, I like the “Rowdog”. I’d like to get to really know the “Rowdog”. I find the “Rowdog” an interesting species: brave, courageous, always a “wagging tail and a wet nose” to greet you in the mornings – though, not the smartest breed in the kennel, you know?

    ..But still.. *throws arms and eyes to the heavens* “SUFFER THE LITTLE ROWDOGS TO COME UNTO ME..!!!”

    X,Y,”and Z” — OUT (Sit, Rowdogs, Sit)..!!

  28. Popeater February 15, 2012

    awwwww. Kelly is sweet.

    RIP Whitney.

  29. B Lamont February 15, 2012

    Thank you Kelly!!! So beautifully spoken!!

  30. @antertain February 15, 2012

    Real talk from Rowland
    Bobbi Kristina needs the media to allow her the time to grieve.

    @KELLY re: Feb 15th, 11:08 am —

    For future reference, do yourself a HUUUUGE favor, exercise EXTREME caution when reading/viewing anything over on that ‘RAT-ASS WIPE’ of a blog, Mediatakeout, K ???

    What TMZ is to the racist mainstream, ‘Mediatakeout’ is to the mentally indigent urbanite shut-in.

    (I’ll indulge you..) Let’s say that what you’re suggesting is accurate, and you’ve, in this rare instance, not endangered precious neurons from exposure to M**’s toxic drivel. In THAT case, that relationship, with whatever man who is as “melanin blessed” as she is, won’t last; it can’t! Know why? Well, because although he MAY be blessed with a complexion as hers – that’s NOT what she truly desires.

    Kelly Rowland likes white men. That’s HER choice, good for her! That said, she’ll NEVER be able to backpedal: “Orlando Bloom, and men who look like him, are THE most attractive and beautiful!” Nor should she ever want to. That’s HER quote and that’s HER likes. That’s..”HER”!

    (The s*** gets deep, buckle up..) You can’t be “Team Breezy” and be a “Rowdog” – if you mix “matter” and “anti-matter”, you get the sort of reaction that fuses atoms and causes stars to compress, implode, die and then form “black holes”: the end of time, as we understand it!

    When Chris invited your fave on the F.A.M.E tour, it was as though he spat in the face of every heterosexual black man who saw the “Feb 8th, 2009 Chrianna” BS, and who THEN supported him. Me?! I’d suspected it was BS (even printed the warrant and had family members in the legal profession break it ALL down for/to me) and then decided to organize and saw the blogs as my battlefield. I actually organized the very first “Team Chris”. I had friends and family, who were spread across different international time zones, with “talking points in hand”, then blog on HIS behalf. I even had to set-up a proxy server through my IP address because they were afraid they’d be tracked. How insane is that…?! Yes, VERY insane – but VERY true.

    I know I’m sidetracking, but allow me, K? I had a client, he was refereed to me by a mutual acquaintance. He wanted me to digitize his vinyl music collection (I’ve never before then, nor since seen so much vinyl in one location – his home). It was in mid-2010 and the Chrianna drama was still very-much raging. While I was at his home working, he made an snide remark regarding Chris. Don’t you know, in that man’s home, we got into a very loud argument and shouting match! Yup! It ended with me insulting him, his home, and his personal hygiene, and me then storming outta there. The point I’m trying to make is that I took s*** seriously. I was tired of seeing Oprah Winfrey exercise her 25-year agenda: black women ALWAYS right; black men ALWAYS wrong; white men as white knights in shining armor. I WAS F****** SICK OF HER B*******..!!

    Though somewhat…scattered, I offer all the aforementioned in only hoping you understand what fueled my…”fight”. (back to your fave..) My position on your fave is, in the end, a good thing. You see, there’s NEVER been, at least in the media, electronic, print, whatever, a “black male heterosexual presence”. These blogs are a “game changer” – a paradigm shift of tectonic proportions.

    You see, if I “say it” loud enough, with it then presented with verifiable fact, and it then said with enough conviction – they’ll hear me – they’ll come – they’ll follow… Trust me..!!
