Kelly Rowland Denies Colorism's Influence On Her Career
Pop beauty, Kelly Rowland, despite only simmering in the United States is sizzling across the international markets. Growing up in the same household as fellow diva Beyonce Knowles and starting her career in the same group with Bey has definitely given her a head start on her competition and an undying fanbase that would give their left pinky finger for her. However, after all the props and accolades are settled, Kelly Rowland still lags significantly behind Beyonce in American record sales, endorsements and appearances, despite the two being so close in both beauty and talent. What's to explain the difference between the two. In a recent interview, a journalist implied that Kelly Rowland's 'chocolate complexion' may be the deciding factor. Here's what Kelly Rowland said:
"In the music industry, the last person I can think of that did that and completely busted it wide open, that was a chocolate sister, was Whitney Houston. But I don't think that's what we should focus on, I think that if you break, you break, and I think that you find opportunities for yourself, period - and you make them your own.
