Growing up I was a huge Destiny’s Child fan, I remember being thirteen years old and doing the “No No No” dance. It was such a shame to see the way they spilt in such bitter terms. Whenever we think of a possible DC reunion, we think Beyonce, Kelly and Michelle, but I’d like to see a reunion that included original members Latoya and Latavia. Oh wait there was Farrah as well too. Damn I don’t know whose worse, Destiny’s Child or Sugababes?
Swiftly moving back to the point, original member Latoya Luckett wrote an exclusive blog for HoneyMag.com where she discusses the Destiny’s Child break up:
I wasn’t upset about losing a chance to go to the Grammy’s or any celebrity perks. It was the loss of the friendship that was difficult. That was the hardest part of the separation. These girls [Beyonce, Kelly Rowland, LaTavia Roberson] were my friends from elementary school. We went to church together, we hung out together.
To go from that to sitting across from each other in a courtroom and going through all that law stuff, was just crazy. You just kind of look at each other differently. That’s when I realized that the friendship had died. Figuring out how we were going to split assets and profits and all of that felt like a divorce.
God is so amazing. Recently, I ran into Kelly and we got to catch up briefly. It was one of those things where you never know how the other person is going to react. But it was relaxed. I think we’ve both gotten to the age where it’s like, Girl please! She even hit me up the other day to let me know she was traveling. I would love to have a close friendship again, but that’s on God’s time.
I won’t hold my breath on that original DC members happening anytime soon then.
