Kelly Rowland is constantly defending herself in light of the question of what it’s like to follow in the footsteps of Beyoncé.
Rowland was recently asked what it was like to perform alongside the “brightest light on planet Earth,” to which she responded saying she “wrestled with it when she was younger,” however now she’s positive about the experience.
“Here’s the thing, light attracts light. I am light,” Kelly told Hot 97’s Peter Rosenberg. “So I am a beautiful brown shining light. So I don’t think anybody’s light dims anyone else’s. I think that when other people start to compare you, I think that’s when it shows how dim they are of themselves.”
Fans on the Internet criticized Rosenberg for continuing to ask the tiring questions about Kelly in comparison to Beyoncé, however Kelly slayed her answer! Go girl!
What do you think about Kelly’s response to being compared to Beyoncé? Do people compare you to your siblings? How do you react?
