Everybody's talking about Kelly Rowland's performance on the 2011 BET Awards last night. But many are asking themselves where was this Kelly Rowland all these years?

One writer for the Atlanta Post thinks he knows the answer: she was a victim of her former manager Mathew Knowles' anti-competitive management style.

Salem Aster writes that Knowles was simply more interested in boosting his daughter to worldwide fame -- and he did that by suppressing Kelly's now obvious talents.

Obviously, Beyonce needs no explanation. She is fierce, she is driven and she has the success to match her passions. Nobody is doubting that. However, why is it that Kelly’s talents had to be downplayed for the sake of Beyonce’s success? Economically, it doesn’t make sense.

For some reason, (I’m assuming) Papa Knowles thought there wasn’t enough room for more than one Destiny’s Child member to gain success in the music marketplace. If he did indeed steer Rowland’s career away from success, then he was engaging in anti-competitive practices.

Thew writer notes that, since Kelly "broke ties with her former manager" she is now seeing much more success than when she first became a solo artist. Since the Atlanta Post is a business magazine, I wonder if the writer is hinting that Kelly can sue Mathew?

Meanwhile, over the weekend, her former bandmate, Beyonce, made history as the first female performer to headline at the Glastonbury music festival in 19 years. :yawn:

    Beyonce performance was pretty much the same ole, same ole.
    Kelly had a striking performance, very sexual with all her clothes on.

  • KrayZKat

    Personally, I don't really see all this "talent" people are raving about. What Kelly did has been done before, i.e. singing sexually explicit songs and performing the same dance routines seen countless times. I grew up old school, so I guess I'm too old to see the hype. Back then, each artist had their own style (no cookie cutter performances). JMO.

    No... she has a Nice single. thats why she's hot right now. :coffee:

  • http://twitter.com/eastpointvet eastpointvet

    she probably could sue if she can prove what was said but since she and B are friends and matt basically raised her and even gave her the opportunity she would never do that. best thing she can do is what she doing now and let her talent speak for itself. and B glastonbury performance was good im still trying to figure out with bet having a whole show to pick from why did they pick the performance they did to air on the awards?

    Kelly was more appealling and Beyawnce was a bore. Same refurbished routine, over and over again!!!

    Kelly looked good and danced good. My mother and aunt was like look at Kelly go! I didn't know she could do all that!! I was like Kelly been doing that, yall just fell for the Beyonce hype so she was overlooked.

    I personally paid attention to all the girls in Destiny's Child, sooooo I NEVER fell for the hype of Beyonce!!! No Shade

    Someone on another blog said that Kelly was channeling Janet circa "I Get Lonely". Janet did it better but Kelly did okay for her. I still think she's gorgeous so I guess she has that going for her. :shrugs:

  • jazi65

    I always thought Kelly's voice was more powerful than bey's when they were in DC. Hence the reason I believe that she was thrown to the wayside while daddy made sure Bey became a household name.

    Now she's woke up & dumped Matthew it's finally Kelly's turn. If she continues to put out hits like this there's no stopping her.

  • Tatted Diva

    Well, I could see where this Salem Aster is coming from BUT let's not forget that Kelly had unprecedent success w/D.C and if it weren't for Matthew Knowles, she would have never been known in the first place!

    Dayum, can we just enjoy Kelly's success now!!! She's where she is suppose to be @ this moment in time!

    I think we have NEVER seen Kelly do a good performance since her DC days, so last night's performance was certainly an upgrade.

  • http://twitter.com/_imOther_ Mamacita

    I don't think that's the case. I like Kelly and I think she's beautiful girl but I've never really cared for Kelly's voice and all the other singles she's put out have not been very good IMO.

    I think that even if Beyonce wasn't on the scene Kelly STILL wouldn't be a big artist because people just aren't feeling her.

    Her hype is big now because she FINALLY put out a song that people actually like (eventhough it took a song about sex to do so). I'm still waiting on the next single to see if she can continue the success she's had with this one.

  • West Coast Chick

    Kelly was unfairly managed, but she took it like a champ :coffee:

    Kelly is a good performer, but Beyonce is much more polished and professional

    the last time they performed at the EBT awards, the mic was turned down really low on kelly's performance, but Beyocne blew it threw the roof, so i completely understand that she hasnt been given a fair chance.. but even still, she aint no Beyonce :shrugs:

  • Tatted Diva

    @ Mamacita....I AGREE! I NEVER CARED FOR KELLY'S VOICE! It sounds "undeveloped" to me!

  • howmanylicks_07

    That is such a bad pic of Kelly :blink:
    She look like a sick horse that need to be taken out to pasture. I've always liked Kells out of all the Destiny Child members glad she getting more and more reconginition and part of me do believe it has something to do with new management. Whether it was to expand Bey's career that I dont know.

  • kahmmillion

    BEYONlyingnonem'fknfactorstealingotherpeoplesongssayingitshersCE's performance was wack as hell. Kelly was fully dressed (until the end), yet she was looking sexy as hell (and that's coming from a str8 female). This broad is always naked showing her vegatable and arse just so that she could sell some records. Not only is Kelly #1, but she also make her former bandmate look like an arse because she did it with her clothes on.

  • sexyphillygirl

    I dont understand why people are so hard on Kelly, its enough money out there for both her and Beyonce to get. I think she did a good job on the awards last night. I am no fan of either one of them I think they are both talented in their own rights....

    _____________________________________________________________

    I thought she was too when I saw the performance last night but she needed more energy to get it like Ms Jackson, Kelly started acting like she was getting tired when it was time to break it down...

    And I remember a long time ago they said Matthew Knowles was calling radio stations requesting that they didn't play LeToya's "Torn" so I wouldn't be surprised if he was somehow sabotaging Kelly's career when she first attempted to step from behind Bey's shadow.

  • WUTWUZMISSIN!

  • StillASassyOne

    I missed Kelly's performance last night and thanks to Sandra, I just watched it THREE TIMES! I loved it! I've been to a Beyonce concert and I wouldn't even watch that THREE times!! I don't even know why I liked Kelly's performance so much. I always thought she was beautiful, but her performance like almost turned me one....and she had all her clothes on!!

    Also- Kelly's voice IS stronger than Beyonce's. Beyonce' (back in their late DC days) actually did an interview and said herself that Kelly had the strongest voice in the group. I believe she was talking about how they would warm up and Kelly would warm up to Whitney Houston songs yet she (Bey) would never be able to get the tone right, so...yeah.... :coffee:

    Kelly projects. Beyonce' screams. Listen to her "Best Thing You Never Had" and then Kelly's voice on the OLD DC track, "Emotions" and you can tell the difference. Actually...listen to the differences on that track between her and Bey. One of them is SCREAMING, literally.

    Beyonce's voice is stronger than Kelly's live...always has been.Now Kelly's 2nd album was off the chain and she sounded so good but of course that is a studio album.

    And with all successful groups it just takes one to stand out and bring the group to success.. i.e.

    As @tatted said "Dayum, can we just enjoy Kelly’s success now!!! She’s where she is suppose to be @ this moment in time!"

    I was huge fan of Destiny's Child as a teenager...and the only person I was checking for was Beyonce...

    Kelly is talented. Not as talented as Beyonce. Point blank period. Kelly's voice is not better or stronger than Beyonce's. I went to their shows. I was a DC fan thru & thru. Kelly's voice was never the strongest. Which is why she was lipsynching last night. Kelly can sing in a studio and sound good. Her actual tone is prettier than Beyonce's. Beyonce has a deep throaty voice but her range & techniques kicks Kelly's like it stole sumthin. And live, Kelly sucks. She has no strength in her voice-she cannot belt to save her life. Remember the last time she performed on BET? That was live. Totally different this time b/c she was lipsynching to a pre recorded track...which is why that hat was sewn to her head so you couldn't really see her mouth & she kept the mic in front of it. Her voice is light & airy & almost always cracks-but last night she gives the first vocally solid performance? Chile bye. Google her performances. Beyonce is a lot of things, but one of them happens to be more talented than Kelly Rowland. #ThatIsAll

    Singing? both have nice voices, but have ya'll heard Bey live? I dont think so, cuz how anybody can see Bey live and downplay her talent baffles me
    Dancing? Kelly was stiff as hell, a body roll here and there don't cut it as sexy to me, you couldnt really see her body in that 'fit until she stripped at the end, that big ugly hat, jet black hair, all black 'fit..that was a mess, she looked way prettier on the red carpet
    Have ya'll seen any of Bey's videos? Im scared that chick may break her neck or something cuz she is so passionate about it Have ya'll see the run the world video? You really think Kelly could pull off that choreography? Hail to the nall

    I do think that Kelly is talented but I guess I was expecting more from her since her performance was hyped. She did good...but amazing nah.

    Comparing Bey and Kelly is silly IMO. I think they are both good artist and at the end of the day they are friends and have always been despite what stories people are putting out there.

  • StillASassyOne

    Maybe it's just me.....but Kelly has a better voice. I like Bey too but I'd be lying if I didn't say that her screaming, the forever-shaky vibralto and the ever-lasting runs she does throughout every song doesn't start to work my nerves after a while. Bey has a nice voice, but it's not "pure" as you would say. And it shows because Bey has had a LOT of vocal training since she's been on the scene. Her voice is a trained voice, it's not a raw voice and one can hear it listening to her albums progressively. If Kelly also went and got the training, I'm sure she could blow Bey out the water vocally just because she's much less "pitchy."

The fact is that Beyonce has "IT"whatever "IT" may be..the fact of the matter is if the roles were reversed and Mathew did everything he did for Beyonce' for Kelly, I still don't think Kelly would be that huge of a star, and I truly think that Kelly is okay with it..I don't think Kelly is any compettion with Beyonce..Kelly is simply doing her...I think Kelly likes her lane...too much work to be damn Beyonce...LOL

    I noticed Kelly is a better singer than I thought. She really is impressive on "Motivation". Bey is cool but she is too young to be stuck in the same style all these years (blonde weave, onesies). I've been saying she needs a new hairstyle because a lot of famous singers switch up every once in awhile.

    ____________________________________________________________________

    She was lip sycncing to a "LIve" track. It's a track recorded to sound like they are performing live. Bey does it sometimes. It's a way to keep the sound and the dance moves on point. For Kelly it was a way for her to sound "not so nervous". Every other time I have seen her perform live, her voice shakes and she fails. That is the reason why she has never been as good as Beyonce.

    I wonder why Sandra Rose is not talking about how Kelly's performance was a rip off of Janet Jackson's "I get so lonely" She copied some moves, the drum breakdown was the EXACT breakdown in Janet's performance, and the shirt ripping open...Cmon son!

    The big hat was to cover the fact that she WAS NOT singing live. At one point when she was walking back to Trey Songz, she said something and the mike was not to her mouth.

  • West Coast Chick

    The fact is that Beyonce has “IT”whatever “IT” may be..the fact of the matter is if the roles were reversed and Mathew did everything he did for Beyonce’ for Kelly, I still don’t think Kelly would be that huge of a star,

    @Sassy I like Kelly's voice, too and I actually don't prefer one of the artists over the other-just one of their talents over the other's. I want the best product-and IMO Bey has the best talent. I agree w you about her runs being annoying & so is her vibrato. But Beyonce has not had any more vocal training than Kelly. They took the same lessons as kids. Now Kelly neeeeeds to get some vocal training b/c her voice is very thin and she could never perform a whole show alone. I think Bey voice is less raw b/c she's a perfectionist and like her idol Barbara Streisand, she thinks it's best to give the better vocal vs the rawer, more human vocal. I have never heard Beyonce give a pitchy performance. She's always got a perfect vocal & I've often wondered how the heck she does that. I'm only yappin so much b/c I do vocal training. And I could help Kelly out. She needs some vocal strengthening in the worst way.

    @West Coast Chick Go watch the video! As she's walking back toward Trey the track says "sing it" or "sing it y'all" or something like that but the mic is NOWHERE near her mouth. :lol:

    Well speaking as a person who has been a musician for over 13 years and has studied/played/sang music Beyonce is the better artst IMO. But then again what do I know...it's just my opinion.

    @Lipstick I love her curl too! I'm obsessed with big hair though. If my hair did that naturally I would wear it like that EVERYDAY but unfortunately my curls are a lot tighter and look like a GOT damn jheri curl lol...If you find which pattern it is let me know!

  • CHA CHA

    Singing? both have nice voices, but have ya’ll heard Bey live? I dont think so, cuz how anybody can see Bey live and downplay her talent baffles me
    Dancing? Kelly was stiff as hell, a body roll here and there don’t cut it as sexy to me, you couldnt really see her body in that ‘fit until she stripped at the end, that big ugly hat, jet black hair, all black ‘fit..that was a mess, she looked way prettier on the red carpet
    Have ya’ll seen any of Bey’s videos? Im scared that chick may break her neck or something cuz she is so passionate about it Have ya’ll see the run the world video? You really think Kelly could pull off that choreography? Hail to the nall
    Also, BET pissed me off hyping up Bey’s performance the whole show and it was some BS, she barely acknowleged BET

    I think some folks just feel sorry for Kelly…..and Bey can wear a onesie cuz SHE ROCKS THAT BISH!

    Kelly's voice has always been more powerful then Beyonce.I always liked the lady like manner Kelly has. So last night at the BET awards, i wasn't impressed by Kelly's performance. I have seen it all before by all the others. So i see she decided to do what the rest do when they don't sell..... sell sex. Why is it considered a great performance when a female strips, grinds and humps the floor? What is wrong with our society?

It's so light and airy and that's cool for the STUDIO but when you get on a stage and try to perform that just won't cut it. I am amazed by Beyonce's voice, tone, control, techniques, etc.! I just don't see how she does it! It's so intriguing to me and that's why I think I'm such a big fan of hers. She facinates me lol...

    @Mamacita there;s this popular Chinese vendor named Kevin that alot of the women use on BHM, he can reproduce ANY curl or wave pattern. I may send him that picture of Bey and see if he can produce that for me. Right now I have in Kinky curly hair...if you like BIG hair you would LOVE this....lol, it's big and curly. It looks like natural hair, right now I'm wearing it straight because I was tired of the curly stuff, it's still big and poofy though. You wouldn't believe the amount of people that think it's my real hair. If you want to see photos of the hair just let me know I can email it some to you.

  • steph L

    Unfortunately, people it's not about talent...it's about entertaining. Most singers, make their money on concert tours...Beyonce is the better entertainer, hands down. IMO!

    Think about it, Florence Ballard was the better singer and she was the better looking Supreme, but regardless of Berry Gordy's sexual relationship with Diana Ross, he knew she could entertain...it wasn't about looks or sound, it was about performance. Diana Ross, is still a performer till this day! Also, the Jackson's...crazy as Joe may have been...Michael was the entertainer in that family.

    Entertainment makes the money, not the voice! :think:

  • WUTWUZMISSIN!

    I don't think people are feeling sorry for Kelly. Are they shock and currently facinated by her, maybe. They haven't seen this side of Kelly and people are interested. For how long who knows. I don't know why it is hard for people to let this woman have her moment. The aftershow they showed Kelly in the lead for the OMG moment by 46% with Bey "Same shyt different colored jacket" only having 13%. Frankly I think people are tired of Bey's same ole same ole.

    I'm sorry, but I got to go with Sassy on this one. The 1+1 song irks my spirit as well as the best thing you never had, Beyonce is not singing she is screaming. As far as Kelly she did a wonderful job, and yes she was singing cause those adlibs she was doing was not on that song and who doesn't use a prerecorded track. I find it funny that Bey fans can have open season when critiquing other artists, but when someone critiques Queen Bey they "hating"- chile please.
    Anyways I hope everyone is doing well, and oh my Auntie Sandra gotta packed house with all the new folk :)

    @Mama...no, I haven't gotten with the twitter thing yet....the thing about wet and wavy or curly hair is that it takes sooooo much maintenance. Like I have to twist or braid my hair EVERY night, there is no sleeping on the hair. The hair I have in now is Malaysian Remy, I got it from a vendor so it's not packaged beauty supply store hair. Most of the time the hair starts off as virgin hair, then they have to process it for the curl pattern, that what makes it "remy" also if you seal the wefts it will cut down on shedding, I haven't experienced and tangling with this hair, but I try to use only natural organic products on it, mainly products from the Shea Moisture line...their products are awesome for you natural hair as well. And curly/ wavy hair gets dry quick so you HAVE to keep it moisturized, I normally use Moroccan oil for moisture.

THE ONLY THING I DON'T UNDERSTAND ABOUT THIS KELLY/BEYONCE/MATHEW THING IS KELLY WAS UNDER CONTRACT TO MAKE HIM MONEY, WHY WOULD HE SABOTAGE THAT? WHEN DILEMMA WAS ON TOP OF THE CHARTS, MATHEW PUSHED BEYONCE'S DANGEROUSLY IN LOVE ALBUM BACK SO KELLY COULD RIDE THE WAVE AFTER THEIR DILEMMA HIT. KELLY FIZZLED....IS IT MATHEW AND BEYONCE'S FAULT IF THE CONSUMERS DON'T FLOCK TO BUY KELLY'S PROJECTS? WILL ALL THE PEOPLE THAT ARE PRAISING KELLY NOW BE RUSHING OUT TO BUY THE ALBUM WHEN SHE DOES FINALLY RELEASE AN ALBUM?

    @KELLY ROWLAND

    You have a horse face. Right now, you are probably as "hot" as you ever will be.

    Again, you have a horse face.

    No. All of her "albums" have one good single and then she goes back into her barn for hiding for another year or two.

    Mark my words, 2013/2014 we'll be having this same conversation about how Kelly wasn't treated right by Matthew and now she's getting her "just due" blah blah blah...

  • iyonah

    I am happy as the next that Kelly is getting some shine in the states. But I :cosign: this --> Personally, I don’t really see all this “talent” people are raving about. What Kelly did has been done before, i.e. singing sexually explicit songs and performing the same dance routines seen countless times.

    Her voice sounded good, but anybody that knows DC and actually was interested in Kelly after DC, DOES know the girl can sing and dance a lil. I don't see why people are "acting" so shocked. Let’s see if we can get a solid album to rave about. I am all for good music.

    That shot of Bey below looks weird for some reason.
    @Sandra will you post any vid of her performance?

    Okay, my two cents….I am not a Beyonce’ fan (more of a neo soul type chick…Jaguar Wright, Ledisi etc.) but i don’t understand why some people can’t accept the fact that some people have IT and some don’t…everybody isn’t meant to be a big STARRUH!!! LOL!! The fact is that Beyonce has “IT”whatever “IT” may be..the fact of the matter is if the roles were reversed and Mathew did everything he did for Beyonce’ for Kelly, I still don’t think Kelly would be that huge of a star, and I truly think that Kelly is okay with it..I don’t think Kelly is any compettion with Beyonce..Kelly is simply doing her…I think Kelly likes her lane…too much work to be damn Beyonce…LOL
    *************************************************************
    :cosign: Sandra I hope you really don't believe that nonsense.

  • West Coast Chick

    I don’t get why people are so critical of Bey’s stage attire? It’s what she wants to wear and she likes it. Obviously her fans like it too because she continues to sell out concerts. It’s become her signature look.

    shiiiiit! that jacket Beyonce had on was BUSINESS! I would like one in a size small, please and thank you :coffee:

    It's not about being critical for no reason. Bey never really changes much style wise even for shows. The hair color doesn't bother me at all. But she seems stuck...Janet, Madonna... most great stage performers change their style for performances . "Janet" album Janet had a different look than Velvet Rope Janet and her last HBO special was different than that. I'm just talking stage looks here. Her body is hot. I'm not questioning that. Bey says she wants to "be different" and shes "earned" the right to experiment. SO DO IT GIRL... step the helloutta your comfort zone

    Kelly did okay, nothing spectacular, but I guess people are rooting for her since she was the underdog for so many years. They did the same with Letoya and look where she's at now.

    That's what I am saying that leg thang is Tina's, that wild hair thang Chaka. Pointy Boobs and Bald head Grace Jones....(where da hell did I pull her azz up from? :shrug: ) Anywho Bey is large and she needs something that hasn't been done before.

  • Feline Feminine

    Just stopping through for a spell and I gotta state that whomever contoured Kelly's face needs their azz kicked...she already has a long face, all that extra cheek bone foundation and contouring is absolutely UNNECESSARY...tis all... :coffee:

    WHEN SHE SAID EXPERIMENT SHE MEANT WITH HER MUSIC. CHANGING HER HAIR OR ATTIRE WILLNOT CHANGE WHAT IS COMING OUT OF HER MOUTH.

    lblondon, I AGREE WITH YOU WHOLEHEARTEDLY!

  • http://www.facebook.com/binkii52 Binki

    @Belle thank you! It's actually a lace front but I never wear it down on my hair line. I pull my own edges out and blend so I don't look crazy lol

  • Belle

    @Binki yw! I can't believe that's a lace front w/ the horror I've seen them be on other ppl. Yours looks nothing like that. I'm scared to try one but that is pretty.

  • http://www.facebook.com/binkii52 Binki

    Imo hair changes just for the sake of doing them is gimmicky (sp?). I'm speaking as a fan of entertainment, concerts and Bey herself. Changing your style for shows is another way to showcase your creativity. It's refreshing. What's wrong with that?? Why only experiment with your sound but not update your look to go with it?

  • SuthernBelle4

    again why is it so easy for Beyonce's fans to be critical, but when it comes to someone critiquing Beyonce its a problem. Like someone said above its about preference, someone ya'll been dranking that kool-aid

  • NaijaGal

    Interesting how some people are saying Kelly made it over a sex song and had a rapper back her up...correct me if I'm wrong but Beyonce's first single, she had on coochie cutters and red pumps with jay-z backing her...a lot of Beyonce's songs are sexual period (De Ja Vu anyone?)...anyway I think Kelly did awesome last night and I've always thought her voice was the best...you don't have to like Kelly but let's not be hypocrites by criticizing her for the same things Beyonce has done and continues to do

    let us cut it out.. we can have more than 1 black female/male artist on top without the crabs in the bucket.. they and we are always willing to talk about our genre of people.. we will never hear or read a story where..shania twain has more horses and cattle than leeAnn Rimes.. we will never hear kelly clarkson or carrie underwood... GArth Brooks or Billy Ray Cyrus..yall get my drift..so cmon we should Celebrate that we can have more than one Black doing the damn thing.. we should have more than 2 sheeeeesh.. this is our craft we evented this shiiiiiiiit stop the nonsense
    this way when BET have another award show we have legitimate artist not somebody we never even dropped a record (Nicki Minaj award.com)
