A week after giving birth to Blue Ivy Carter, Beyoncé is enjoying motherhood. She got a visit from her friends Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams who say their fellow Destiny’s Child diva is a natural in her new role.
Drake paid homage to Destiny’s Child during the OVO Fest in Toronto this weekend. Wearing an OVO tank top, the Young Money superstar showed love to the R&B group, slowing down their 2000 hit single “Say My Name” during a medley. He previously covered TLC’s “FanMail” on “I Get Lonely Too,” which was supposed to appear on his shelved R&B mixtape It’s Never Enough.
They may not be recording a new album or going on tour, but Destiny’s Child was back together for one night. Beyoncé, Michelle Williams, and Kelly Rowland reunited to toast the release of Kelly’s third solo album Here I Am at the Top of The Standard Hotel in New York City on Tuesday night (July 26). All three ladies looked lovely in black as they posed for pics, sipping on Moët inside with guests including Maxwell, Big Sean, and Estelle.
The ritzy affair capped a busy day of promotion for Kelly. She stopped by Planet Hollywood to imprint her hands in the cement and chatted with Terrence and Rocsi at “106 & Park.”
During her visit to Angie Martinez’s radio show, she revealed that she will be going on tour with Chris Brown this fall. “I’m going on tour with Chris Brown in September. I’m so excited about that!” she said.
Farrah Franklin, former member of Destiny’s Child, is in trouble. The 29-year-old songstress, who served as an interim member of the group for five months in 2000, was arrested for disorderly conduct in Culver City, Calif., this past weekend.
The ladies of Destiny’s Child are back together, but unfortunately, it was only for lunch. Beyoncé, Kelly, and Michelle met up at Phillipe Chow in West Hollywood to celebrate Kelly’s belated 30th birthday on Valentine’s Day. The group was snapped getting into an SUV, along with Bey’s sister Solange and her cousin Angie. Take a good look because this is the closest we may get to a reunion.
Kandi Burruss recalls writing one of the biggest hits of the ’90s, TLC’s “No Scrubs.” The “Real Housewife of Atlanta,” whose new album Kandi Koated drops December 14, reveals how the Grammy-winning song changed her life. “That was one of the best decisions I think I ever made,” she tells Rap-Up TV of giving the song to T-Boz, Chilli, and Left Eye. “That song has made history and it really opened the doorway for my songwriting career.”
The Atlanta singer-songwriter recently ran into T-Boz, who is working on a special project and asked Kandi to rap along with a bunch of other “female boss chicks.” The door is open for future collabos.
Another big record that came later that year was Destiny’s Child’s “Bills, Bills, Bills.” “At first, I think they were kinda iffy on me coming to the session when I first got there, but I ended up hitting it off really well with the girls,” says Kandi of recording with the original foursome, Beyoncé, Kelly, LeToya, and LaTavia.
