When Kelly Rowland revealed her abusive past in her latest single “Dirty Laundry,” fans immediately went into the Destiny’s Child archive and found songs that could have possibly related to Kelly’s situation.
In an interview with Philly’s 107.9, Kelly confirmed that the songs “Girl” and “Bad Habit” were indeed written on behalf of her dealings with domestic violence.
On whether Destiny’s Child’s “Girl” was about her situation:
Yes. It’s so funny because I don’t know how people connect dots with music and artist that they have followed for so long, but when I saw that on Twitter of people starting to put all the [pieces] together, like it was so interesting. They did it with “Girl,” they did it with “Bad Habit,” they did it with so many songs on that album and I was like, ‘Oooookay!’ Crazy!
On whether she got emotional when she heard the lyrics to ‘Girl’:
Of course I did, the girls wrote it for me. Destiny’s Child is deeper than what people see on the surface. Those are my homies for life. Golden girls! We stuck with each other, period!
On who her celebrity crush is:
He is taken and I completely respect his wife – Jessie Williams. He is just gorgeous. It just makes no sense how beautiful this man is, and I saw him at Super Bowl and I refused to stare because its almost like you’re looking at a work of art. He is like so handsome. He is such a man in the way he talks and the way he acts, it’s just really interesting.
On her favorite rapper:
Kendrick Lamar, because I love how witty he is and how he thinks of things off the cuff. He is socially conscious. He puts things that are currently happening [into his music]. The way he thinks about stuff and puts it all together [is amazing]. He is just very smart and very intelligent and I like him a lot.
