Kelly Rowland is a solo chart-topper and GRAMMY winner. Yet, her start Destiny’s Child has seen the singer constantly compared and pit against bandmate Beyonce.
And now the ‘Motivation’ singer is opening up about what she says was an “elephant in the room” for a long time.
Full story below…
Rowland is currently back as a judge on The Voice Australia and got all sorts of candid when advising contestant Chris Sebastian.
The hopeful unpacked how the constant comparisons to brother (and show judge) Guy Sebastian had affected him.
At which point, Rowland replied super openly with:
“I know this feeling. Can you imagine what it’s like being in a group with Beyonce?
I can’t wear this dress because they’re going to say it’s like B. Or I can’t have a song like that because it sounds too much like B. They’re gonna compare anyways. ‘I would be lying if I said no, it’s never bothered me. That’s bull.
There was a whole decade, if I am being completely honest, a decade, where it was like the elephant in the room. It was the thing that would constantly be on my shoulder.”

Kudos to Kelly, whose transparency on the topic is refreshing.
She’s carved out a great career of her own and continues to make strides. So, it’s great to see her take ownership of the narrative and make clear that she has her own path.
