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
“I think the people wanted those stories for years and that’s just so sad on them because it’s not like that. She looked at me and said it’s incredible. And said how proud she was of me and then said I never left. And I just oh, man. It was so true she never left. I checked out for a minute.”

A Night Away From The Wig Crypt With Kelly Rowland
Little Known Black History Fact: Kelly Rowland calls her fans Rowland Stones. There’s a GIF for that.
The buzz around the wig crypt this morning is that Kelandria has rescheduled selected dates on her upcoming summer tour with The-Dream to work around her new gig as a judge on ‘The X-Factor’ so she can get to these dollars.
Idolator reports, “While five shows will still proceed as planned, a number of stops have been rescheduled: Kansas City, Missouri; Boston, Massachusetts; Jackson, Mississippi; Baton Rouge, Louisiana; Cleveland, Ohio; and Cincinnati, Ohio. If you live in one of those cities, Kelly Rowland does not love you as much as she loves the rest of her Rowland Stones.”
One of the benefits of prolonged direct exposure to dangerously high levels of creole is that it leaves your skin positively radiant.
With the musty shenanigans of the 2013 Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival underway, Kelly Rowland played host at the Women Who Rock event inside the Hard Rock Hotel in sunny Palm Springs, California on Saturday (March 13).
Also in attendance: Adrienne Bailon, Elijah Wood, Kilo Kush, Brad Goreski, Leah Labelle, Chanel West Coast and Audrina Patridge. Check out 10+ pictures from the good times below.
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.”
