Kelly Rowland does ‘Essence’
Kelly Rowland doesn’t want to be on Beyonce’s level, she’s seeking out her own. After unloading a lot of personal baggage in the confessional single “Dirty Laundry,” the always bubbly Kelly told Essence that she’s finally getting to a happy place in her life.
“For a long time I wasn’t happy, but that had nothing to do with Beyoncé. That had to do with me trying to get my life in order and make better decisions for myself,” Kelly said. “I’m seeing all these wonderful things happen for her and I am happy for her. But I want a path. I want things to pop off for me, too. Not on her level but whatever my level is supposed to be.”
One of the new things she’s trying out in her new, happier life is boxing and she’s found some poetry inside the ring. “I see the beauty in boxing,”said Kelly “It teaches me strength, physically but mostly mentally. I had to learn my strength, because for so long I could have been tougher than I was.”
