Kelly Rowland's has recently admitted to being jealous of Beyonce's success in a new track entitled 'Dirty Laundry' . Shocker Kelly, you jealous of the most successful female artist of the decade? The confessional ballad details her envy of her former Destiny's Child bandmate's solo success and also sings about a past abusive relationship which added to the jealousy.
On the track, which Kelly posted on her SoundCloud web page, she laments: 'When my sister on stage, killing it like a motherf***er, I was in a rage, feeling it like a motherf***er. Went our separate ways but I was happy she was killin' it. Bittersweet she was up, I was down. No lie, I feel good for her but what do I do now? Post-Survivor, she on fire. Who wanna hear my bulls**t.'
Childhood pals Beyonce, 31, and Kelly, 32, formed their chart-topping girl group in 1992 as young girls and would go on to become worldwide stars together as the band found fame with hits such as 'Say My Name' and 'Bootylicious'. Even in the Destiny's Child era however, Beyonce was always the clear frontman of the group, so did Kelly not see this coming? Kelly, you were always the sidecar to Beyonce's limo my dear.
When Beyonce's solo career began to blossom in 2003, the group disbanded following a final studio album in 2004. The 'Love on Top' singer has gone on to become one the most successful artists in the world, while Kelly and bandmate Michelle Williams struggled to break through as solo artists. As well as confessing her envy of her famous pal, Kelly also reveals her emotional torment at the hands of an abusive lover - who tried to break her down by insisting Beyonce didn't truly care about her. Not to downplay the abuse, but one look of the Destiny's Child video 'Girl' would prove Bey is no fake friend now Kelly.
She sings: 'I was battered, he hitting the window like it was me, until it shattered. He pulled me out and said, 'Don't nobody love you but me, not your mama, not your daddy, and especially not Bey.' Kelly admitted the biographical song was 'emotional' to record and she had to stop herself from crying.She said: ' It took me days to record. I had to get past being so upset and actually sing the song, not sob through it.' Let's hope Kelly can move on from her girl band days and boost herself up with a few catchy tunes. If we were her friends, right now we would be showing her pictures of her old self to see how far she's come. Look Kelly, no more dated bottle red hair and unflattering, janky clothes. You've already come so far.
