      Why is she keeping on being average ?

    Kelly is so talented and there’s no doubt she can successfully turn her focus to more than just singing – HOWEVER – girl stay strait sabotaging her career because this is only a good look of she is visible on multiple platforms: new music, tour, consumer products etc. Her fans stay waiting for new music and she pays them dust.

    I love Kelly Rowland and have been a supporter of hers since Destiny’s Child came out. However, it has been sooo frustrating being a fan of hers. Kelly has all the potential to be a big star (whether that opportunity is still there is up for debate) but like someone said she sabotages her own career.

    Her songs are always basic and lacks substance, apart from Stole all the way in 2002. “Still in love with my ex” was just what she needed to blow up. It was emotional, heartfelt and genuinely a great song yet she ignored it for empty songs like “Ghetto” which was “Soldier” 2.0.

    She pays no attention to her craft. Her music videos are always lacking for someone as talented as she is. Her live shows consist of her walking on stage saying “what?” “Sing it!” “I can’t I can’t hear you”. No madam. No one paid you to come point microphones to the audiences.

    Her videos are always bland, uncreative and unimaginative. She is definitely one of the best dancers of her generation but refuses to do that in her videos, lacks story telling… just bland.

    Is it laziness,is it insecurities, confidence issues? Who knows. I wish her all the best though and I really really hope IT finally happens for her. She deserves it so much.

      Please stop trying to down play her. Yes she havent put out new music yet. As a fan we dont know if you couldnt because of a contact. Second the music she was making the labels picked the songs to put out not her. People always talking but really dont know what the real deal is. Thats why she wants control of this album so she can do what she wants.

      • Haterz Gon’ Hate September 28, 2018

        And yet I don’t think Kelly will ever be able to ‘do what she wants‘. She simply does not command that level of power at any of the labels she’s been on. And that’s okay, not everyone can be Madonna, but why can she leaverage social media to explain the gaps like others do? She seems to be plagued with delays a‘la Mrs Aguilera and look how that album ended up. Fans – will not, wait, casual listeners will not care.

      • Lobs September 28, 2018

        Trust me. I’m the last person that will ever downplay her. Her talent is immense. I have always believed in her ability. All I’m saying is she hasn’t put as much into her craft as someone who has been in the game for so long should be doing.

        She’s had one great solo moment with “Motivation” but why should that be the case? She should have way more! How about her stage craft? How about her videos? Her art? I was binging on her music videos one night and I can’t pin point one solid solo music video performance from her. “Commander” could have been it yet we (her fans. Myself included) were treated to half hearted voguing and catwalks. Just no. Not acceptable of someone as talented as she is.

        The world is always ready for her. She’s one of those people who is universally liked. She just never took advantage of that. She isn’t a mediocre talent. She needs to stop doing mediocre things.


        I think that gives me the right to call her out on the negatives too.

      • Tiana September 28, 2018

        Lobs… you are right. Like she is realy talented but her live shows are somtimes strange. You as a Singer should not pas the Mic all the time to the Audience and she is doing that forever I never understand it. Like you can do it 3 or 4 times but not always. I think as a Peformer she has to improve a lot.
        I hope this time around she becoma a better Peformer.

    Anything on BET is a fail but good for her
