Singer Tank praised Kelly Rowland and called her "by far one of the most talented females I've ever worked with in my life."

He also said Destiny's Child was created to worship and adore Beyonce.

Tank made the statements in a recent appearance on the Drink Champs podcast. He believes Kelly, with whom he collaborated, was overlooked by then-manager Mathew Knowles, who wanted to elevate his daughter, Beyonce.

"You have no idea. I had no idea. [Kelly is] one of the best of us," said Tank. “I worked with Kelly Rowland and I was completely thrown the f--k off because we always want to give the credit to Beyonce, who is Beyonce? Kelly Rowland is by far one of the most talented females I've ever worked with in my life."

He admitted that he originally thought Destiny's Child was being carried by Beyonce — until he worked with Kelly in the studio and realized she was more talented than Bey.

"I was sitting in the studio like 'Do y'all hear these harmonies?" Tank said, referring to Kelly.

"Do you hear her voice? The texture, the changes, and dynamics... are y'all hearing this?' I never knew! I gave all the credit to Beyonce. That's how the business of Destiny's Child was set up: to adore Beyonce."

Trick Daddy's ex-wife Joy Young is speaking out after his "eat a booty gang" comments went viral on social media.

The 47-year-old rapper-turned-reality TV star revealed his distasteful fetish on a recent Drink Champs podcast hosted by N.O.R.E. and DJ EFN.

During the interview, the Miami rap legend, real name Maurice Young, was asked about his "eat a booty" gang.

He said he's looking to expand the "franchise" to include women who are also into analingus. Trick Daddy said women are eagerly performing the sex act on men.

He insisted, "Women eating the booty, too... Yea, I get ate out!"

When N.O.R.E. asked if he put his legs in the air during the sex act, Trick responded, "It depends" on who's dining.

However, Joy claims she never shared Trick's nauseating fetish when they were together.

"He's been with other women other than me," she wrote on her Instagram Story.

"Y'all already know that at what point did these encounters happen I have no idea. I am not the source. Leave me out of it."

While Trick's ex-wife distanced herself from his extracurricular activities, R&B singer Tank supported Trick's sexual proclivities.

"FYI that man ain't wrong for enjoying pleasures from his woman. My new single feat @trickdaddydollars 'Let That Woman Eat' coming soon!"

Tank is baffled over the homophobic responses to his statement that one man giving another man oral sex does not make either man a homosexual.

It all started when Tank sat down with The Breakfast Club's Angele Yee to promote his new album, Elevation, that dropped today (Oct 25).

Tank described a scenario in which one man samples another man's penis, and then decides it was not to his liking. In that situation, Tank says, sampling the man's penis - even twice to make sure - does not make him a homosexual.

"He sucked a d**k once, right? Then, he's like I'm not sure if I liked it or not. Let me try it again, and then he says, 'You know what? It's not for me. Don't like the taste.' See what I'm saying?"

Tank continued: "It doesn't mean he's gay. It means he sucked d**k twice. The art of being gay is being gay. It's a continuous state of being."

The 43-year-old Capricorn dropped by The Breakfast Club on Friday to continue the discussion.

Tank, pictured here with lesbian rapper Siya, was baffled that women are frequently given a pass when they "explore" other women's vaginas, but men are considered homosexual when they "explore" another man's penis.

"There's an exploration process. And this speaks to the double standard," said Tank. "Women are allowed to explore and play and do all of these things and they don't get boxed into a thing. And I think for men, there's a scary thing as it pertains to being gay."

Tank argued that men should be given a pass when they choose to explore another man's body in order to form an opinion on whether they prefer to go both ways.

Tank is not backtracking from statements he made about oral sex between males. The R&B singer angered his female fans when he claimed one man giving another man oral sex does not make either man a homosexual.

The 43-year-old Capricorn made the controversial statements in a sit-down interview with The Breakfast Club co-host, Angela Yee, to promote his new album, Elevation, which drops Friday.

Tank described a scenario in which one man samples another man's penis, and then decides it was not to his liking. In that situation, Tank says, sampling the man's penis - even twice to make sure - does not make him a homosexual.

"He sucked a d**k once, right? Then, he's like I'm not sure if I liked it or not. Let me try it again, and then he says, 'You know what? It's not for me. Don't like the taste.' See what I’m saying?"

Tank continued: "It doesn't mean he's gay. It means he sucked d**k twice. The art of being gay is being gay. It's a continuous state of being."

An unofficial poll of the comments on Twitter.com shows 98% of bio females strongly disagreed with Tank, while 100% of homosexual males were in agreement.

Tank, who has battled homosexual rumors for most of his career, did not back down as the debate continued to rage on Twitter.com on Wednesday.

Many females accused Tank of promoting homosexuality among Black males. Others assumed that this was Tank's way of easing himself out of the closet.

"Tell em to keep the smoke coming!.." he tweeted.

R&B singer Tank was shocked when he checked his Instagram messages and found a sexually inappropriate image sent to him by someone purporting to be a minister. Tank was so incensed that he posted the picture to his Instagram timeline.

After apologizing to his followers, Tank chastised the minister for misrepresenting his robes.

"This is what's wrong with the church now! Misrepresentation of God and who he really is," Tank wrote. "I have no problem with homosexuals BUT I do have a problem with this!!" he added.
