Kelly Rowland looked back on how difficult it was to constantly be compared to fellow Destiny’s Child member, Beyoncé.
“I would just torture myself in my head,” she recalled. “Like, I can’t wear this dress because they’re going to say it’s like Bey. Or, I can’t have a song like that because it sounds too much like Bey. They’re gonna compare anyways.”

“I would be lying if I said no, it’s never bothered me. That’s bull,” she confessed. “There was a whole decade, if I am being completely honest, a decade, where it was like the elephant in the room. It was the thing that would constantly be on my shoulder.” However, Kelly’s since found her own success as a solo artist in the many years since Destiny’s Child went their separate ways, and the ladies have even come together for several reunions over the years.
