A glowing Kelly Rowland chatted it up with ‘House of Style’ correspondent (I’m just going to leave it at that, thanks) Rita Ora about how to own the red carpet, as well as some of her favorite looks through the years.
“Now I look at that and I’m like ‘that was a big risk.’ I mean, I guess it was appropriate for that time. Nobody was really doing what we did as far as our outfits were concerned,” said Kelly about her red carpet moment with the Destiny’s Child at the 2001 MTV Video Music Awards.
Guess who just got herself uninvited from Deshawn Snow’s sunset barbecue? Additional details have emerged about Farrah Franklin‘s bizarre night that landed her behind bars in South Carolina over the weekend — and they sound like deleted scenes from the movie ‘How High’.
According to the police, NFL player Da’Quan Bowers flew down to Myrtle Beach to see him. The two, along with NFL baller Ricky Sapp, spent all afternoon and evening knocking back drinks before later returning to Sapp’s home.
Both men told police the former Destiny’s Child member was highly intoxicated and behaving erratically, “yelling, slamming doors and refused to stop when asked.” The men called police after she refused to calm down.
Cops said they found Franklin lying in the middle of neighbor’s yard, telling them she “did not have anywhere else to go and was planning on sleeping in the woods.”
In audio from the 911 call made by Bowers, the defensive end with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers tells the operator that he believed that your cousin twice removed was high on drugs.
Once upon a time, Creolepatra Knowles actually had to explain her actions to people.
Back during the era when Destiny’s Child was dropping members every other video shoot, Michelle, Kelly, and Beyonce called into Wendy Williams‘ radio show to explain recent shake-ups in the group. And well, you know how you Uncle Wendell can be.
Listen and enjoy the days of yore when Queen Bey was forced to play nice with her elders for the greater good of the cause after the cut.
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.
PART ONE – PART TWO
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.”
