Despite what it may look like, former Destiny’s Child singer Letoya Luckett said Beyoncé was not giving the side eye to Kelly Rowland in a retro video recently gone viral.
In the footage from the group’s earlier days (Hey, LaTavia!), Kelly is speaking and describing herself as the “second lead vocalist.” As soon as she utters the phrase, Beyoncé clears her throat and averts her eyes from the camera. Shade?
The blogosphere seemed to think Beyoncé disagreed with Kelly and used the cough as a way to let the public know that Kelly was mistaking about her status.
However, LeToya denies that the “Drunk In Love” artist was subtly contradicting Kelly’s claim of being the No. 2 in the group.
“It looks like shade was being thrown but I don’t remember throwing the shade,” LeToya said.
“I don’t know where that even came form, why we were looking like that,” LeToya reasoned in an MTV interview. “What if the girl had to cough? What if she was just having like an issue?”
