Songbird Kelly Rowland took issue with reports saying she advised straight people to ask potential partners if they've had past gay experiences.
In a tersely worded Instagram.com post on Friday, Rowland, 35, complained bitterly that her words to a NY Post reporter were twisted out of context.
Rowland, who is in the midst of a publicity tour to promote her Lifetime movie 'Love By the 10th Date', explained "There's a storyline about bi-sexuality in the film and the writer asked about this particular character and I shared my thoughts on how the fictional character could have handled the situation better in the film."
But in her haste to be viewed as politically correct, Rowland missed the opportunity to start a dialogue on HIV and AIDS affecting black women.
In light of the statistics that shows black women are the 2nd highest risk category for HIV behind gay men, there is nothing wrong with asking a potential partner if he has had same sex experiences with men.
Read Rowland's complete statement below.
See, this is why HEADLINES can be toxic for readers! I did an interview with the NYPost about my Lifetime movie "Love By The 10th Date" and there have been multiple media outlets taking a specific statement completely out of context. There's a storyline about bi-sexuality in the film and the writer asked about this particular character and I shared my thoughts on how the fictional character could have handled the situation better in the film. I'm only making this statement to my fans as everyone knows that I've always embraced the LGBTQ community and have absolutely nothing but LOVE for my LGBTQ family.
