Destiny’s Child fans got a little glimmer of hope this week when Beyonce Knowles, Kelly Rowland andMichelle Williams all gathered together for Kelly’s album release party on Tuesday night.
The X-Factor judge released her third solo LP Here I Am, Stateside this week and guests at the New York bash included Brit singer Estelle, rapper Big Sean, model Jessica White and actress Adrienne Bailon.
Although Kelly recently said in an interview that DC will NOT be getting back together, seeing all three former members together does bring on some wishful thinking – plus it wouldn’t be the first time a celeb did a U-turn. So I still believe a reunion could be on the cards. Maybe not anytime soon, but sometime down the line (hopefully).
Kelly Rowland released her new album Here I Am this past Tuesday and inside the LP’s booklet, the X-Factor judge is looking sexier than ever in her most daring photoshoot to date.
The 30-year-old singer goes topless – and even bottomless – in some snaps. But the pics all look tasteful and the former Destiny’s Child singer is not olny at the best stage in her life career-wise, she’s also looking her best too.
Go Kelendria. I look for forward to hearing the album.
For all those doubting Kelly and Beyonce are still friends, this picture will prove the former Destiny’s Child ladies are still friends. It’s been a while since the two were pictured together and since the band parted ways, the two have never worked together musically, so the gossip columns and blogs have been reporting the childhood best friends are no longer ‘sisters’.
Rest assure DC fans, all is well between the two singers. Kelly drove up to Manchester this week to join Beyonce watch her hubby Jay-Z and Drake perform live.
On other related DC news, it seems there won’t be a DC reunion anytime soon. Speculation has been rife recenty that the original ladies are all going to reunite for a tour and possibly release some new material. But Mathew Knowles – DC manager and Beyonce’s father – has released a statement saying there will be NO reunion.
Aw that’s a shame. But hey, The Spice Girls said they’d never reunite again, so all hope isn’t lost DC fans.
Rumours have been rife recently that all members of Destiny’s Child, old and new, will be reuniting for a one off show, which could possibly lead to a tour and maybe even releasing a new single. I grew up on Destiny’s Child, so this possible reunion is very exciting news for me, but I never buy into all the hearsay that flies around, as most time it usually turns out to be just hot air…
However, after seeing the pictures of original DC members Kelly Rowland and Letoya Luckett looking very ‘chummy’ earlier this week on the red carpet for E! 20th Anniversary, it got me thinking, maybe this could actually happen.
Apparently Mathew Knowles – Beyonce’s dad and ex-DC manager – is very keen to get this project underway. Come on Mathew, you have to make this happen!
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.
