Kelly Rowland‘s recently released song, “Dirty Laundry,” caused a bit of a stir because the song talks about Rowland being in an abusive relationship and her feelings of resentment toward long-time friend and former bandmate, Beyonce. But not too worry — these BFFs are still going strong.
Rowland admitted during a recent radio interview that she was unsure about releasing the song, explaining that her feelings of jealously toward Beyonce were immature.
“I was young, you know? I was so young. That’s the most that I can say about that – I was so young and in a relationship and my head was completely gone,” she said. ”That’s just basically what happened and with my sisters, what matters to me the most right now is what we have. And I love her and Michelle more than anything, and they mean the world to me. I’m so grateful for what we have as sisters, away from Destiny’s Child.”
The singer said both Beyonce and Michelle Williams supported her releasing the track, saying they both took a listen before it went public.
“[Beyoncé's reaction] was endearing. It was, ‘I never left!’ Which was so sweet, and I was just like, ‘Oh my God’. But yeah, it was endearing. It was real – she heard how real I was. She was just like, ‘I’m so proud of you’.”
