Kelly Rowland Recalls The Time She And Destiny’s Child Were Viciously Booed
Things weren’t always going so well for the former girl group, Destiny’s Child, the group that launched Beyonce Knowles’ career and made her an international sensation. Earlier this week, Kelly shared how she and her other friends were booed off the stage by Summer Jam fans.
Despite the fact that Destiny’s Child has been hailed as one of the most legendary acts of all time, not everyone has loved them at some point. According to Rowland, she and her group mates were highly mocked during a performance for Hot 97’s Summer Jam.
Rowland said it was a huge disappointment, but in the long run, they managed to learn an important lesson. You can check out what Kelly said in the YouTube video below: Kelly Rowland Recalls The Time She And Destiny’s Child Were Viciously Booed
According to Kelly, there was an identity problem. They “crossed”, so to speak, into the dominant world. And there was a problem among some of their fans who saw them as abandoning their “black” roots.
Regarding what happened during the performance, Rowland explained that she was looking into Beyonce’s eyes, and that she was not about to let her go out alone on stage. It was a “ripple effect”, where they all decided to take up the experience and the challenge together as a group.
