Kelly Rowland was back in the hot seat during her visit to Power 105’s “The Breakfast Club” on Friday. In addition to getting hit on by Charlamagne, the “Kisses Down Low” singer spoke about topics ranging from oral sex to her new album to a Destiny’s Child reunion.
“I am in love with this album,” said Kelly of Talk a Good Game, due in June. The project features production from T-Minus, Boi-1da, Pharrell, Kevin Cossom, Mike WiLL Made It, and The-Dream, who she may tour with.
She explained why she was crying in a photo taken on her birthday (“I had an epiphany about life”) and why she doesn’t want a family right now. Plus, she once again shared her thoughts on Keyshia Cole’s Beyoncé comments and defended B’s controversial record “Bow Down.”
Read highlights from the interview below.
On whether she would go on a date with Jamie Foxx: “That would be weird because Jamie’s my boy.”
On performing at the Super Bowl with Beyoncé: “I don’t remember what happened on stage… I think that it was just a moment that was just so surreal to completely be honest and I’ll never know what it felt like.”
On the photo of her crying on her birthday: “On my birthday, I had an epiphany about life and it made me very emotional. It’s corny. I was thinking about family, I was thinking about friendship, I was thinking about the things that I want and the things that I haven’t yet conquered. I was just so happy.”
On starting a family: “I truly believe that whenever it’s my time to be married and have a child, I will. In all honesty, I am still selfish. I like to get up whenever I feel like it. I like my life the way it is right now.”
On starting the EDM trend: “After I did ‘When Love Takes Over,’ everybody started doing it. It started to become a trend in the states… It was a beautiful mistake.”
On working with The-Dream: “He pushed me to do something different and to be completely stripped and honest on the record.”
On Keyshia Cole’s jabs at Beyoncé and Michelle: “I think silence is the best power because you don’t have to say nothing. They did all the talk. Just talk, keep talking. But I don’t think that it’s important to fire back ’cause you’re just fueling the fire. You don’t have to do that. It’s just ridiculous. We too grown for that stuff.”
On Destiny’s Child: “We haven’t talked about an album. We haven’t talked about a tour. B’s about to go do her tour. I have collaborated with Dream. Dream and I are talking about doing a tour.”
On “Bow Down”: “I do like the ‘Bow Down’ record. I think that when you understand who you are as a woman, you can accept the record. People gon’ talk. Who cares? Who gives a crap? You’re an artist, you’re allowed to try out different things and see what you wanna do. We’re all blessed to have freedom.”
