The “Say Something Nice” Challenge
Kelly Rowland appeared at the Virgin Megastore in London yesterday to autograph copies of the new ‘Sims 2: Castaway’ game. Kizzy, Kizzy, Kizzy . . . I mean really. Please say something nice about her career.
Word on the curb is that Kizzy Rowland’s upcoming North America tour is in danger of being cancelled due to poor ticket sales. She was previously scheduled to appear in 15 cities, but so far she has cancelled three shows with no ticket refunds.
Beyoncé and Kelly Rowland were on hand Wednesday for the groundbreaking of the Knowles-Rowland Temenos Place apartments on the corner of Gray and Chenevert.
The project is backed by the Survivor Foundation, which was set up by the Knowles family and Rowland after Katrina in 2005.
Other sponsors include St. John’s United Methodist Church and the city of Houston.
The project is described as a 43 unit single-occupancy transitional housing development designed to provide housing for women and men taking “significant steps in improving their lives after … personal and natural disasters,” the Survivor Foundation reports.
Construction of the apartments is expected to cost $4 million.
Beyoncé, Rowland , and Solange, Mathew and Tina Knowles have pledged $1 million to the project. (source)
How G would it be for to call up the maintenance man to have him take a look at your dripping bathroom faucet and Baby Daniel show up? Sounds like a bad 80′s porn.
All jokes aside, it is nice to see the Knowles family and Kelly Rowland team up to make a difference.
 I guess Kizzy exceeded her allotted first name mentions in the article.
Kelly Rowland Feat. Snoop Dogg – “Ghetto”
- In a recent interview with Sister 2 Sister Ne-Yo spoke out about the gay rumors that have been following him throughout his career. “I don’t know. To this day I’m still trying to figure it out. You know what I think it is? It’s because when you see me, when you talk to me, my mannerisms are not-I’m not that,” said the no hands pork chop sandwich eating crooner.
He contiued, “So people see me and they don’t see something that they’re accustomed to and people feel the need to have to categorize stuff. They just can’t let it be ‘I don’t know what that is.’ So they got to do something. He’s not rough, rugged, and raw, so he must be gay.”
- Kelly Rowland spoke to MTV news last week about the video for the second single off Ms. Kelly titled “Ghetto.”
“I’m working with Andrew Gura on this video. It’s very, I’d say … gosh, I’m trying to get the right word out because I don’t want to sound crazy. . .It’s ghetto. It’s really fly. I feel like everybody has some sort of element of ghetto in them. Think about it. Right? Wouldn’t you say so? And everyone knows what the ghetto is,” Kizzy said.
It is reported that Kizzy Rowland will follow in Beyaki’s footsteps (who by the way just released a Spanish version of B’Day) by re-releasing her sophomore album Ms. Kelly. Here is the scoop via That Grape Juice:
Since the release and subsequent poor performance of Kelly Rowland’s sophomore
CD ‘Ms. Kelly’, there have been calls for a re-release to bolster sales. It now appears that a reworked version of the album may be in the pipeline afterall.
Following a concert in Atlanta this past Friday (August 11th), the singer was quoted as saying she was on her way to the studio to record more tracks. While it’s common-practice for artists to record inbetween projects etc, the comment is interesting when considering her manager Matthew Knowles’ new ‘multi-tiered’ (spread across time) approach to releasing records – first shown with Beyonce’s ‘B’Day‘ project. For what it’s worth, producer Brian Michael-Cox (‘Bad Habit’, ‘Be Without You’ etc) was in attendance at the concert.
Maybe Baby Daniel will hire her hold as a part-time weed carrier.
