Kelly Rowland Talks About Beyonce’s Reaction To “Dirty Laundry” & Her On Stage Breakdown

Kelly Rowland

Kelly Rowland has been doing a lot of press for her upcoming album, Talk A Good Game.  She’s currently on tour with The-Dream and she’s also one of the new judges on the X-Factor.  Kelly Rowland is popping up everywhere and I’m not mad about it.

Over the weekend she performed a show in Silver Spring, MD and had an emotional break down while performing her latest track “Dirty Laundry.”  After her performance, she stopped by 93.9 WKYS and chatted about her upcoming album, joining X Factor, breaking down during the show and Beyonce’s reaction to hearing “Dirty Laundry” for the first time.

Read the highlights below:

On her upcoming album

The album takes you on a journey through my thoughts.  It’s me being very open…which for a second, was a little hard on certain songs.I remember for “Dirty Laundry,” I was saying I didn’t want to put that on the album.  It was a form of therapy.  You’re supposed to grow and learn from it.  

On Beyonce’s reaction to “Dirty Laundry”

It was the place that I was in…I was so young.  My head was completely gone.  That’s what happened with my sister.  What matters to me most is what we have.  I’m so grateful for what we have as sisters…away from Destiny’s Child.  I played it (“Dirty Laundry”) for her and Michelle.  Beyonce said, “I never left.”

On breaking down while performing “Dirty Laundry”

It’s really weird when you take yourself in front of a crowd.  Even in that moment of when I put my feet up, I felt like I was in therapy.  I was singing and talking about what happened, and for a moment, it was like that crowd wasn’t even there.  And then when the music stopped…I was like “You are live Kel.  Calm down.”  And I had to calm down, and then I had to breathe.  You get lost…and it’s nothing wrong with getting lost.  But that was weird.  I felt like I could do that with D.C.  

On joining X-Factor

Yes. I’m doing X-Factor.  When I did it in the UK…I really enjoyed that process.  I enjoyed the auditioning process, I enjoy watching the artists’ development.  Because I went through that phase.  And you want to be there….You want to be a voice of reason or knowledge.  I think it’s important to be honest and give constructive criticism.  I’m not a dream crusher.
