    Why does it always seem like she’s trying to do 10 different things at the same time? why can’t she just focus on promoting her new single? this is the same issue that she had last year when “Here I Am” was released and she couldn’t properly promote it in the US because she was off being a judge in the UK. And to make matters even worse, when it was finally released over there the albums STILL flopped. She needs to do better and try focusing on getting her music career off the ground, although I’m sure that ship has come several times and sailed away each time.

      I agree! She’s trying to expand her brand in different countries but they don’t seem to care about buying her music (check charts). Kelly’s main focus should be in the US!

        tats knot it at alllllll

    • truth August 3, 2012


      SHUT UP

    • alessandro August 3, 2012

      you’re completely. she’s getting angry for doing this, i mean i love kelly, but she can’t focus on her music career that’s why ppl don’t recognize her as she should be

  2. Tinah August 3, 2012

    Her new album will flop because she will be too busy in Australia doing a dance show and won’t be in the US promoting it. Same thing happened last year with Here I Am. It flopped because she was in the UK for X Factor.

  3. Roc August 3, 2012

    I love both Kelly and ciara I really do I STAN for those talented b****** BUT it doesn’t seem like They want it? Ciara Conquered the charts b4 She CAN AGAIN but she doesn’t seem driven she looks like she busy enjoying the fabulous life And Kelly girl YOU get the chance Then its like you don’t give a s*** Like They thought Here I am is gonna sell on 1 single only and let the 2nd one LIOM flop it had even more potential than Motivation smh …. Girls get it together please we need people like you in this Dry of talent industry

    • GREG August 3, 2012

      Where Kelly and her label went wrong with “Here I Am’ was trying to infuse Dance and R&B on one CD….you cant do it. You have to choose one or the other

      • Thorne August 3, 2012

        “Here I Am” was an awesome album!!!
        I don’t know what record you guys listened. All the songs are on point. REGARDLESS of the fusion of R’n’B and Dance.

        You guys are crazy!

      SHUT UP

      • JazThatBoi August 3, 2012

        Its funny you mention Ciara, cuz i was watching Goodies the other day and Ive honestly never seen her with so much drive, so much swag, so much energy. I think ppl were really attracted to that on the real. Passion and focus is everything in this game, it truly makes a different in how we receive music!

      • truth(the one and only u b****) August 3, 2012

        no your fake as shut up

  4. Lebo(CaribbeanBOi) August 3, 2012

    I LOVE HER … She’s such a nice person ..

  5. amina August 3, 2012

    Kelly rowland is an internationnal artist. She tried to be an internationnal superstar.

    she is not monica or keysha (and i love them) but i agree its look like she do a lot a stuuf together.

    BUT she just need to kill every performances in america and it’s gonna be alright.

    I think people love kelly everyboby want success for her (haters come with it)

    • truth August 3, 2012

      AMEN sista-

      Kelly Rowland is INTERNATIONAL and very HAPPY. F*** the haters!!!

      • truth(the one and only u b****) August 3, 2012

        b**** stop using my name h**

      • Anne August 3, 2012

        But she is flopping internationally. Face it, she spreads herself way too thin instead of allowing herself to first excell in one arena and THEN branch out.

    • AMINA August 4, 2012

      Everybody know how much the promo around the second album was terrible like completely unfair after the succes of the first album.

      So what i mean is, after that, you can see how much kelly loose confidence. The way she singing stole for example back in this time was good, she was confident.

      Remember the sale of the second album was very low, colombia dropped her. then she decided to drop mathew and take control of her destiny.
      The truth is she accomplish now what she suppose to do after the first album. and i think “when love take over” help her to get back her confidence.

      Now she a grown woman and she working hard to upgrade a game.

      She is international star succes or flop. She has more succes outside of U.S. period

      and yes she’s not a superstar. not yet but she work for.

      kelly has talent for sure but i admit sometimes she looks like a singer afraid to win and not focus.

    luv u kelly ^^

  7. Matthew Charlery-Smith August 3, 2012

    Kelly No-Schedule is looking to have another “Here I Should Have Been” era. She needs to learn from Mariah. Title name, snippet, release date, radio play, video.

    I don’t like “Ice”. I’m hoping there’s better songs a la “Simply Deep” on the album or I’ll be leaving this outside like the last one.

    Wish her well

  9. RELLY August 3, 2012

    I cant wait to see Kelly Rowland’s episode of Unsung, cause at the rate she is going she will be doing one next year. She needs to get it together quick before she has a bigger flop than HIA. After the success of Motivation there is no reason this girl isn’t at the top of everyone’s list. She needs to stay away from these damn realty shows in other countries and focus on her music here and promoting it and touring.

    SIdenote: Her and Brandy on a tour would be great since they are friends and are both dropping this fall.

    • Myrl22 August 3, 2012

      I agree with most of what you say and the thing about her and brandy touring together is the best idea i’ve ever heard in years when it comes to kelly. Lets trend that on twitter

    • Myrl22 August 3, 2012

  11. pat August 3, 2012

    kelly’s doing just fine…the video for motivation came way after the song first leaked to blogs and it did well….she just needs to make sure she works her second single way better than she did with HERE I AM

  12. Hateretha August 3, 2012

    Kelly will flop once again
    The f***** end !!!!

  13. gio88 August 3, 2012

    they must release the song on radios!!!!!!!!!

  14. d August 3, 2012

    out of all the flop chicks ie keisha kelly ashanti christina million et al i think ciara has the best chance of making a comeback. she’s the only one that i think can do what the chicks doing it are doing and bring something more (epic videos and dancing)

    • Roc August 4, 2012

      EVERBODY says this its so True Ciara Is the one with the biggest chance to make a comeback

  15. truth August 3, 2012

    _/ Kelly

  16. Go Gabby (lil Oprah) – the flying squirrel! Congrats!!! August 3, 2012

    My inquiry mind wanna know whats going on in her love life. Its high time something is if it isnt.

  17. S*** August 3, 2012

    Kelly Nowhere-land.

  19. gemini August 3, 2012

    i heard ice on radio its playin on radio…

  20. kevin August 3, 2012

    lol, TGJ’s reverence of Kelly NEVER made sense for me. Ice is an awful song, her new album WILL flop.

  21. Myrl22 August 3, 2012

    cant wait for the video… i think its gonna be better than anything we ever seen from her. plus that ice is going straight to number one baby. #Grammy performance 2013

  22. Black kupid August 3, 2012

    Wishful thinking has never gotten any where , we all want her to succeed but she needs to want is more badly than we do. Booking jobs outside the US when u ve an album on the horizone and its lead single licked without making immediate move to cushion the damage being donen then you are preping 4 a failure

  23. Black kupid August 3, 2012

    There is a thing called prioritization and scheduling. This girl needs to lean to arrange her work and herself so that things dont clash. Take Here i am era for example, ppl were expecting a stronger choreography for LIOM but due to time constains we hot a motivation video part 2 we brighter lightening and scantily dressed men even the vid for Down for whatever was shot the same week and looked as cheap as hell. Ppl want u to blow us away this go round or ganging it and start making babies

  24. Black kupid August 3, 2012

    Her team need to book her more performances so that ppl can see how good she is. ICE seem ok, but kelly need epic to get to where she deserves . Am rather gonna wait and pray she comes out with something stronger. I need her togo back to the UK and show that tulisa girl what she is made off dont fail me now girl.

  25. sweetheart August 3, 2012

    Kelly just drop the single on itunes, radio and da video already geesshh!

  26. truth tela August 3, 2012

    Black kupid you are cool mate! Just exactly what l wanted to say!

  27. Black kupid August 4, 2012

    Kelly ! Get it together. @ truth tela , i want this girl to succeed more than she wants it. But well i guess God knows why she is flopping cos she trys but we all know she does not try enough.
