Throwback Thursday: When Destiny’s Child Told Farrah Franklin To Sail On

sail on Throwback Thursday: When Destinys Child Told Farrah Franklin To Sail On

Did you have a chance to wish Creolepatra Jones a Happy 32nd Birthday? While the act didn’t make it on my to-do list yesterday (and a roots box has yet to show up at my doorstep) I did have time to watch one of my favorite moments in Destiny’s Child history.

Before Michelle Williams fought her way to become the only replacement for LeToya Luckett and LaTavia Roberson only to later fall for Christ on the 106 & Park stage, there was Farrah Franklin. The below set of clips show why her time with the chart-topping girl group was short lived.

Be sure to peep Beyonce’s reaction when Kelly Rowland mentions Jay-Z’s name and the passive aggressive shade following Farrah’s departure. Roll that beautiful bean footage.

A Step-By-Step Guide To Answering Questions About Keyshia Cole By Kelly Rowland

Kelly Rowland offered the following nice nasty comment when Rolling Stone asked for her thoughts on Keyshia Cole shitting on Michelle Williams‘ halftime performance at Super Bowl XLVII via Twitter:

“It didn’t even make it on my radar until other people brought it up. It didn’t even matter. We had a wonderful performance, and that’s all I cared about. I was with my sisters and the three of us matter to each other, and that’s all that counts. We matter to a lot more people, with all due respect, than her. So, I really don’t care what she said.”

Surprise! Mathew Knowles Says There Is New Destiny’s Child Music On The Way, Hopes For A Reunion Tour

mathew knowles Surprise! Mathew Knowles Says There Is New Destinys Child Music On The Way, Hopes For A Reunion Tour

Pin your stocking to the fireplace a little early!

If Mathew Knowles gets his way there will be two new Destiny’s Child albums coming your way this Christmas.

In his interview with Black Voices, Miss Tina’s ex-hubby brags about Music World being one of the top Gospel labels in the nation, what will be on the new Destiny’s Child album, and speaks on his high hopes that DC3 will reunite for a tour.

Let’s hope Michelle has been practicing the choreography during all of these off years.

This year marks the 20th anniversary of Music World. What are your plans to ensure that you’ll be successful for years to come?

We have to be realistic. At Music World we got to shift our direction and certainly stay in music. We’ve grown our Music World Gospel to the fifth largest Gospel label in America. But again, even for the label, we got to partner up. It’s similar to what’s happening in corporate America back in the ’80s. You saw a lot of mergers and acquisitions. We have to be smart in who we can partner with to do it better. We still have our joint venture with Sony and in November we’re putting out two Destiny’s Child catalog records with new material.
