As a group, you’ve managed to sidestep any rumours of catfights…
Listen, you can’t preach about having female power, supporting each other and being a unit, if you’re not one. I remember one of the first solo projects Bey did, I was sitting there the whole video shoot supporting her. I was happy for my sister. Some of the public would love for me to hate her, but what’s the purpose? What’s to gain out of it? One of the things I’m most proud of in my life is the fact that we have maintained a sisterly bond.
That does sum up what Destiny’s Child seemed to stand for. Was it a deliberate, thought-out doctrine?
No. It was just us. We would be in the studio and songs like Independent Women would naturally come about between us. And it was awesome. Timing was everything. You know, I completely salute Michelle [for joining the band in 2000 after two original members left]. She came onto a moving train that was going 1,000 miles per hour. Nobody ever gives her the credit she deserves.
