Kelly Rowland is having a break out year, fresh off the success of her hit single “Motivation.” Her new album Here I Am was released on Tuesday and Ms. Rowland sat down with The Breakfast Club to talk about the new album, different projects she’s working on, and get’s personal when discussing her father.
She said she is “completely humbled by the whole movement of Motivation,” and the great year she’s been having. Charlamagne tells her she’s so beautiful, she deserves to get a fart sucked out of her butt! She addresses the rumors that she is dating Cee-Lo and discusses getting respect from different rappers (Young Jeezy, 50 Cent.) Kelly talks about working with Rico Love on “Motivation” and discusses her performance at the BET Awards saying it was one of the best performances she ever did. She talks about being one of the judges on The X Factor in the U.K. and her appearance on Single Ladies.
Kelly discusses her relationship with Beyonce and Mathew Knowles. She says the ladies have never discussed a Destinys Child reunion. Charlamagne asked her about a report that her father was trying to get back into her life. She says, “I haven’t talk to him yet, I definitely plan on it. And hopefully I meet him soon.” When Charlamagne responds saying he doesn’t think she should meet him because of the timing of him trying to get back in contact with her, she says: “I think been a long process of him trying to get back in contact with me. It’s very interesting now how it does happen at this time. I think everybody deserves forgiveness, and I think its OK to move on. But it’s so weird, I haven’t seen this man in 20 years… but I’m definitely going to meet him.”
