Could former X Factor judge Kelly Rowland be jealous of fellow Destiny’s Child member Beyonce Knowles? According to Kelly’s latest single, the answer is an unequivocal yes! Does the singer still deal with pangs of jealousy or is this all in the past?
It doesn’t take a genius to figure out that Beyonce has been the most successful of the Destiny’s Child trio. While Kelly Rowland has certainly accomplished much in the years since she first hit the scene with the hit girl group, her record sales and concert tours don’t even come close to approaching the popularity surrounding anything Beyonce.
It’s natural to assume that Kelly was at least a little bit jealous of Beyonce, but until now, the singer has mostly kept these feelings quiet. But on a new track, Kelly is letting loose and telling the world how she really feels. Entitled “Dirty Laundry,” the song addresses Beyonce’s unprecedented success following Destiny’s Child’s split. This is especially clear in such lyrical passages as the following: “When my sister was on stage/killing it like a motherf***er/I was in rage/feeling it like a motherf***er.”
Despite this “rage,” Kelly also admits to feeling happy for her friend and fellow musician. When combined with the anger, it made for a feeling that was incredibly “bittersweet.”
Whatever she felt before, Kelly Rowland has worked hard to get over her jealousy and support her friend. Without that effort, it’s hard to believe that the members of Destiny’s Child would have successfully come together to record several new tracks and perform at the Super Bowl. Hopefully, the singer will continue to channel whatever emotions she feels into her music, for, no matter how successful Beyonce has been, Kelly remains a very talented woman.
