Kelly Rowland Shuts Down Interviewer After Constant Beyonce Questions

Kelly Rowland has had enough.

The Destiny’s Child diva turned solo star is currently on the promotional run for new BET show ‘Chasing Destiny,’ which is naturally what she’s keen to chat about.

Sadly, it’s a memo an interviewer at WGN news didn’t download properly. Because, in the wake of the release of bandmate Beyonce’s new album, most of the questions levied were ‘Lemonade’ flavoured.

Watch how Rowland firmly and fiercely shuts it down after the jump…

Love it!

Keen to see Kelly take this approach more. For oftentimes she’s been too nice (understandable given that some folk would take anything other than that as shady). But, still, sometime just need to know that you have your own success narrative.

Update: Turns out Ms. Kelly has been shutting down such talk all week.

Your thoughts?

    I came all.the way in her for this 15 seconds of nuttin *rolls eyes*

    • Have a SEAT April 27, 2016

      I believe she knew what direction that interview was going ! He was probably going to go really personal asking about does she know this and know bout jay z this and her feelings towards this and so on! I respect the way she did it.. It wasn’t shady at all

      • ka April 27, 2016

        yeah the interviewer tried to do a sneak around mention about Beyonce to get some tidbits,Kell is like I’m no new school fool about to snitch on my fam but do have some ish of my own.

    • GIRLBYE April 27, 2016

      Kelly is beys sister she knew exactly where he was going I’m glad she did. I know Kelly and is as humble as they get but she needs to tell her management to have the interviews ask less DC3 and Beyoncé questions. Like how annoying all the time

      • #formulation ?☕ April 27, 2016

        I’m not annoyed at kelly. I’m pissed at the over hyped title of this post…

    • BIGGES AALIYAHFAN April 28, 2016

      I’m glad she shut him down. I’m tired of them always asking her questions about Beyonce when she’s promoting her own accomplishments. I hope this trend continues. You never see them ask Beyonce these questions always Kelly and Michelle.

  2. B2B April 27, 2016

    She should be, every interview consists of Bey questions.

    • Jackson 5 Nostrils (Tyler) April 27, 2016

      Yeah it’s just disrespectful at this point tbh.

  3. Xander April 27, 2016

    Its about time she cut them off. I feel infuriated hearing them asking her beyonce related questions. She goes to these interviews to chat about her solo projects, not bey’s

  4. truthtea April 27, 2016

    This is precisely why Kelly has never really had much success as a solo artist! Every interview consists of them asking her about Beyonce this and Beyonce that, forgetting that Kelly has her own sh*t going on now! Kudos Kelly for shutting that m’fer down in the classiest way possible!!!

    • GIRLBYE April 27, 2016

      And that’s why bey doesn’t go to certain stuff cause she know they gonna make everything about her, even if she just standing there it’s gonna be 20 articles on her “stealing attention, being extra, etc etc” ?

  5. RihYonce April 27, 2016

    They always asking her about Bey like damn can she promote her own s*** without being asked her all the time

  6. ???Chile, take this “Itty Bitty Piggy” to the market and make sure you hold her hand while crossing the street!??? April 27, 2016

    Clearly, Kelly had her “6 Inch” heels on and was ready to murder every b**** in sight, which would be the interviewer. I’m not mad, as long as Bey was her only witness. ? ???

  7. PeaceMaker April 27, 2016

    These Mofos had better #PutSomeRespeck on the name Kelendria Noland

  8. BGKC Formerly RihNavy April 27, 2016

    She was kiiiiii’ing lmao!

  9. Writerboy242 April 27, 2016

    She did that smoothly as f***

  10. Sherrele April 27, 2016

    You go girl! The interviewers get on my nerves when they do that

  11. MUSICHEAD April 27, 2016

    Good job Kelly. I wish Brandy would stop talking about Whitney Houston all the damn time. Shut em down!

    • Faf April 27, 2016

      That’s different she’s her idol
      Kelly and beyonce are contemporaries

  12. Bri Bri April 27, 2016

    I applaud Kelly for the way she handled the interviewer. She is a star and should not be getting asked lame questions about Beyonce all the time.

  13. taqui Arandi April 27, 2016

    You also have to keep in mind this whole interview was for the Claritin campaign henceforth her background…. They completely ignored the purpose of the interview and she made sure she hit her speaking point…. PURE PROFESSIONALISM

  14. Dossome April 27, 2016

    Now everyone will be talking about how Kelly “is tired of talking about Bey” & not what she came in to talk about,Chasing Destiny…media can be A-holes

  15. Hafy222 April 27, 2016

    This whole thing sucks, asking kelly about queen B here is pointless since she didnt go there to do so. We understand how everybody loves bey and why all the press peoples likes talking about her,but we should atleast show some love and respect to those people dat deserve it.

    Beyonce Is wonderfull and she has a way of capturing people’s heart by just being who she is.even here in Nigeria our people are crazy about her,
    I would be lying if I tell you am not crazyngly in love with her cos she did something dat made to love her more, the Nigeria’s national anthem she sang . She was OMG!

    What am goin to say here is dat kelly did the right thing and I hope many press people will learn how to do.thier jobs well.cos I also hate how they talk about beyonce’ personal life as if its nothing.

  16. eric April 27, 2016

    Kelly has always lavished Beyonce with praise whenever and wherever the media was waiting. Now she’s doing a show about finding the next big girl group and doesn’t expect Beyonce and DC questions?? Kelly CHOOSES to center her life around Beyonce and DC and expects an interviewer to be more interested in a box of Claritin?? Seriously?

  17. Terry April 27, 2016

    Be it !!!! Or don’t act like you’re it!!! Lol Kelly you gotta CONSISTENTLY be about you and your music! Stop all these random projects and focus! Anyway whatever……..

    Actually while Letoya has a number one album that went Platinum, Kelly has sold more records. Kelly is yet to have a platinum album, however Kelly is at 30 million records sold to date. Toya isn’t past 7 million worldwide. I love them both but they are far from ‘neck & neck’. Besides Beyonce, Kelly is by far Destiny’s Child most successful member as pointed out by Rolling Stone and Vanity Fair. Not thate need them to tell us. Also of her 5 Grammys, 2 are solo.

    • Good for her April 27, 2016

      I don’t know why people act as though Kelly isn’t a platinum selling artist. She’s sold nearly 30 million records. Obviously she’s had platinum albums and singles over the course of her career. Not to mention the girl is an international superstar. Her Debut album Simply Deep was certified double platinum worldwide. Her sophomore project Ms.Kelly was a slow burn, but it eventually went platinum as well. Her third album Here I Am did not fare as well as the first two, but her single “Motivation” reached platinum status. “When Love Takes Over” was HUGE everywhere but the U.S. and I’m sure “Dilemma”, the first big hit of Kelly’s solo career was a multi-platinum smash. Add that to the fact that Kelly has collaborated with almost everybody in the industry, and one can’t even begin to track how many platinum singles the girl has under her belt. Talk A Good Game was arguably the best album of Kelly’s career, but it was severely under promoted and I don’t even think it went gold, however, it still added to her figures.One platinum album may make you a success, but longevity, branding and multiple streams of revenue are what make you an Icon. This is what Kelly has achieved. Downplaying her success doesn’t negate it. The girl has had a twenty year run. Her DC and solo stats combined amount to almost 100 million records sold. Respect her hustle or not, the girl is still eating real good; along with everyone on her payroll.

  19. No favs, just here for the music April 27, 2016

    Kelly seems like such a sweetheart! I know it must get annoying but handled this with so much class.

  20. steve April 28, 2016

    I love how she stays classy and isn’t in any sort of mess. I see her a truly happy woman regardless. I especially loved how she shut the interviewer down and brought him back into perspective. No other thing shows professionalism like this.

  21. zeroing ivy bloper tran anti girl lemond time April 28, 2016

    She did a good job by cut them off and the interview should asked Kelly Rowland about her TV show chasing destiny and Kelly Rowland is a damn star in her own way

  22. Nick April 28, 2016

    Kelly wrote and sang When love takes over which was voted the best dance song of all time by Bilboard. That is a lot of success. Motivation is over double platinum. In the Uk she has over 6 top ten hits. Including Work; Like this; Down for whatever; When love takes over; Stole; Dilemma. Most of these were actu number one singles. Not to count Commander, What a feeling. I don’t know what people are talking about when they say she is not a superstar because she definitely is.
