Celebrity ISH: Kelly Rowland Graces The Cover Of JET

This year Kelly Rowland was motivated to prove that she has what it takes to be one of the hottest female solo artist in the game. Rowland has had a hard time declaring her independence from her days of being apart of one of the biggest selling girl groups of all times, Destiny Child. 

After the Platinum success of Kelly Rowland‘s ‘Motivation’ this Summer, the release of her album Here I Am, and her smoking BET performance, Rowland sits down with JET and reflects on her year and talks about her future . Check out brief excerpts from the must read interview..


On The Sales of Here I Am:

“I was very happy with the album, period. It was a long time coming and I’m proud that Motivation was nominated for a Grammy; it’s been a really great year,” she says after a brief pause. Her tone holds a mixture of slight annoyance, understandable frustration and reasonable divatude.

On Perseverance:

“I can do whatever I want,” she declares. “I don’t allow anyone to put me in a box. Honestly, if I want to try something, that’s what I’m going to do.”

On Her New Years Resolution:

As the year wraps up, Rowland has one New Year’s resolution. “I want an album in the Top 5,” she shares. She’s scheming, plotting and gunning for No. 1.

On Direction of Her New Album:

“I would like to tell stories about grown woman things— what we go through every single day in relationships and love, empowering each other,” she shares.
