Kelly’s New Direction in Music:
“For me, it was being kind of at a flat line with urban music and wanting something different,” she explains. “I went into the studio and when I did ‘When Love Takes Over’, it was easy to do it – it was almost like it happened before me in spirit and I walked right into it. And then with ‘Commander’, it was just easy so I knew I couldn’t be afraid of this direction, and I wasn’t going to let the thoughts and opinions of others make me afraid to go in this direction, in a sense that when you’re urban you should just be urban. No, no!” She shakes her head. “Nobody puts me in a box!”
On Constantly Being Compared to Beyonce:
“People can’t think of anything more intelligent than to compare,” she frowns. “And that’s only natural, I understand. That’s just the way the industry is, so you find a way to make things your own. But even though this sound sounds like nothing she’s done, people are going to find something to say. ” Does it bother her? “No,” she says simply. “I think it’s important to know who you are and if you don’t, you’re gonna let people dictate who you are. I think that it’s not what people want it to be, and people will continue to make up stories. But I’ll give people a reason not to compare us with this record. ”
