The Commander hitmaker â€” who rose to fame alongside Beyonce when they were members of girl group Destinyâ€™s Child â€” still considers the Single Ladies singer to be a â€œsisterâ€ â€” but she finds comparisons between the pair â€œunintelligentâ€.
â€œWeâ€™re sisters! But claims of negativity and catfights sell way more,â€ she said.
â€œPeople canâ€™t think of anything more intelligent than to compare. And thatâ€™s only natural, I understand.
â€œThatâ€™s just the way the industry is, so you find a way to make things your own. But even though my sound sounds like nothing sheâ€™s done, people are going to find something to say.â€
In January 2009, the singer parted ways professionally with manager Mathew Knowles â€“ who is also Beyonceâ€™s father â€” however, she insisted the split was amicable on both sides.
â€œI just needed a change â€” and he was very supportive, and thatâ€™s it,â€ she said.
Kelly, 29, recently dismissed rumors of a Destinyâ€™s Child reunion, after Mathew claimed it could be on the cards.
â€œMatthew is not a member of Destinyâ€™s child so, with all due respect, thatâ€™s not a decision he can make â€” thatâ€™s up to myself, Beyonce and Michelle Williams,â€ she said.
Some sources said that Kelly is tired of being compared to Beyonce, however I don’t think that’s the problem for Kel …She just felt the need to address the haters once again, about accusing her and Bey of being enemies. As she has stated numerous times “…They are sisters!” and will remain close as family for the rest of their lives.
