Kelly Rowland: “I Want to be the Black Angelina Jolie”

- By Bossip Staff

Kelly Rowland’s looking to adopt a bunch of children soon. That what happens when your biological clock is ringing and there isn’t a man around to hold it down. Flip the script for more

Former DESTINY’S CHILD star KELLY ROWLAND is planning to follow in the footsteps of stars like MADONNA and ANGELINA JOLIE – by adopting a child.

The singer insists she is ready to become a mum and wants to take in a youngster from her native U.S. after working with a charity program for disadvantaged children.

And Rowland is adamant she doesn’t want to adopt a baby – because there are so many older kids in need of good homes.

She says, “I’ve always known I would adopt in a heartbeat but I don’t want a baby – I want to get a child that’s five, six, or even 10.

“I was doing Home for Holidays, which is a charitable holiday program for kids in the States, and some of the statistics means (sic) that older children don’t get adopted as much. I’d love to make a child feel that they’re worth it – because every child is worth it.

“I don’t want that many children – but I want a family of five, including adopted children. That’s still a lot, but I think it would be worth it.”

Sounds like she’s planning on moving ahead with or without a man. She might want to fall back, Kelly isn’t bankrolling Angelina’s money.

    these black celebs are an atrocity. they push the “what you got aint good enough” agenda. it is rare that you see a black woman in hollycult wearing their own hair, lashes, noses, breats. it is so sad and the fact that it’s glamorized makes it grotesque!

    that hair just looks completely fake. ciara’s wig has been looking horrible too. all these ladies need to cool it down with the drag weaves, there was a point when they were looking well done, now these broads are just plopping any 15-inches or better mess on their heads…

    Why would Kelly want to be like Angelina when she is adopted her self ,nice gesture congratulations to her

  • Soul Touch

    Josephine Baker, Kelly. Check out your BLACK history…you would not be the first.

    That being said, I believe that all black people need to lend a hand when it comes to adoption. Give a child a home. I’ve always wanted to adopt and plan to.

    Oh, and Kelly, that hair is atrocious.

    Why do you refer to yourself as the “black Angelina Jolie?” Just because Angelina goes around buying children doesn’t make her a role model. She could make a difference in many ways for many people with the money she pays for children. Being like Angelina Jolie is NOT complimentary.

  • Listen UP

    Kelly, the thought is heart-felt but think about this. First get a man. Every child deserve the benefit of a two parent home. Even though you may feel like you are financially able to raise a child. Money doesn’t raise the child.
    Secondly, you need to grown UP–make sure you are mature enough to handle raising a child.


    that wig is supa duppa ugly !

  • http://bossip ......

    she didn’t say she wanted to be the next Angelina Jolie in the article

  • told you so

    if she just wants a kid or two, i’ll help her out.


    To be Angelina Jollie, she would have to adopt a bunch of white babies from Europe.

  • missunderstood

    Why couldn’t she be like Josephine Baker?? Why she had to be ‘the black Angelina Jolie’? SMH…

  • Soul Touch

    And why should I be ashamed of pointing out what a black woman has done, not only for black people, but for the betterment of people as a whole. NEVER.

    Thank you.

    You best believe I’m going to give credit where credit is due.

    Thank you.

    Kelly,….just another brainwashed chickenhead who doesn’t know her history.

    God lord, stop all the party hopping and pick up a book!

  • me (the original)®

    While I wouldn’t have made the comment regarding being “The Black Angelina Jolie”, I am happy to see someone of color in the spotlight doing this and getting press.

    As far as people giving her grief about her “bankroll” not being like Angelina Jolie’s, this is true HOWEVER there are plenty of middle class families out there who adopt a child and they don’t have Kelly’s “bankroll.” Being filthy rich does not automatically mean a good home for a child. I’m sure this is a novel concept for some of you. From my understanding, she does well overseas, in England particularly…so she’s getting paid.

    If she’s not planning to go and adopt a tribe of children all at once, this should work out just fine and I applaud her for wanting an older child. There are a lot of older children out there who need a home and don’t have it. She’s reaching out with a last minute life line so to speak to those who need it. God Bless her.

  • lies and bullshit

    Kelly will find a (white) man of lesser status to have kids with, mark my word
