With the recent release of “Kisses Down Low” and forthcoming solo fourth album Talk A Good Game, the chanteuse has found her musical niche: honest and sexually-charged tunes that female listeners can easily relate to. Not only is the 32-year-old blossoming post-Destiny’s Child, she is making a mark in fashion regarding her latest style moments on red carpets.
In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, Ms. Kelly talks launching a line of “affordable and luxurious” accessories and shoes. “I want to do a line of accessories and shoes. I’m working on that right now,” she told the publication. “Early, early talks and early stages, but yeah, I’m a grown woman now, and it’s time to do grown-woman things.”
Although she is embarking on new journeys, she isn’t hesitant to revisit the past. In February, Kelly hit the stage with fellow DC3 mates Beyoncé and Michelle Williams for Bey’s Super Bowl halftime show. The surprise performance ignited lots of fan love but, most notably, sparked a Twitter rant (of hate) from R&B singer Keyshia Cole directed at Williams. But Kelly could care less about Cole’s comments, she says.
“It didn’t even make it on my radar until other people brought it up. It didn’t even matter. We had a wonderful performance, and that’s all I cared about. I was with my sisters and the three of us matter to each other, and that’s all that counts. We matter to a lot more people, with all due respect, than her. So, I really don’t care what she said.”
Kelly is on the high road in more ways than one.
