Kelly Rowland Says She Misses Girl Groups Like Destiny’s Child
Kelly Rowland sat on a panel at SXSW over the weekend, and said that with all the solo acts taking over the scene, there’s a void in the area of girl groups. She misses the days when camaraderie was the name of the game, and when she was a part of it.
Kelly Rowland isn’t going to lie, she misses girl groups.
“There’s been so many artists — and there’s nothing wrong with it — who want to be solo,” the former Destiny’s Child member told BET’s President of Programing Stephen Hill at South by Southhwest on Saturday afternoon.
“It’s what we’re used to right now. And like I said, there’s nothing wrong with it. But I think it’s time for another generation to see women coming together. I think it’s time for another generation to see camaraderie. I think it’s time for another generation to hear voices together. To hear the power of it, how exciting it is. How it’s a force on stage. That is something that is missed. Hell, I miss it.”
Which is why Kelly has a new competition reality show where she’s forming a brand new girl group to join the industry…
That’s why Rowland, 35, is launching the new reality series, “Chasing Destiny,” in which she puts the lessons she learned as a member of Destiny’s Child to use in finding the next big girl group.
And while this group may not turn out to be the next Destiny’s Child, Rowland hopes they’ll remind people just how important girl groups.
“It’s the power of females,” Rowland said. “It’s the power of females coming together. And I think its a culture that’s missed. That’s the main reason why I felt there was a void in the market place. Yes, we have Fifth Harmony, yes, we have Little Mix, but that’s two. When we were coming up there was En Vogue, Jade, Xscape, Spice Girls, Dixie Chicks. Girl groups of all genres.”
Do you miss girl groups too? Is it time for a new DC-3??
