Kelly Rowland has admitted that being compared to mega superstar Beyonce was pure toture to her!
Kelly has always had a heavy shadow to navigate through owing to her friendship with Beyoncé. She recently opened up about the experience of being overshadowed and the increasing pressure comes with being Beyoncé’s friend.
Kelly expressed thoughts on her experiences of being overshadowed by Beyoncé’s overwhelming talent as Chris Sebastian shared the same.
During an episode at Star-Star at Mentoring, Sebastian also admitted he feels overshadowed because of his brother’s success and in an effort to comfort him Kelly touched upon her own experiences, saying, “I know this feeling. Can you imagine what it’s like being in a group with Beyoncé? I would just torture myself in my head. Like, I can’t wear this dress because they’re going to say it’s like B. Or, I can’t have a song like that because it sounds too much like B. They’re gonna compare anyways.”
She added, “I would be lying if I said ‘No, it’s never bothered me.’ That’s bull. There was a whole decade, if I am being completely honest, decade that it was like the elephant in the room, the thing that would constantly be on my shoulder.”
