Remember when we all though that dumping Mathew Knowles was a GOOD IDEA for Kelly Rowland … well maybe NOT!!! MediaTakeOut.com just caught wind that Kelly’s label Columbia Records is set to drop her any day now.
Here’s how the U.K.’s News Of the World is reporting things:
SHE'S a Survivor no more, because DESTINY'S CHILD star KELLY ROWLAND is being DROPPED by her record company in both the US and here in the UK.
The Grammy-winner is thought to be no longer commercially viable by her bosses at Columbia Records.
Guess when you no longer have Columbia’s TOP SELLING ARTIST’S manager in your corner … you’re doomed…
top 5! Kelly has been finished........suprised they ddnt knock her off earlier
Dammit I LOVE SHE!
Aww Poor Kelly ====> Next!
I know it wouldn't last..
Nobody cares about Kelly, she had a good career when she was in Destiny's Child, but know one is camping out the store to buy her album
IT SUCKS TO BE HER...AIN'T NOBODY CHECKIN FOR KELLY...NEXT!!!
Awwww poor Kelly
SHE WAS WACK ANYWAY!!! HEY SHANNON!!! LOL
Kelly will make it I mean the chick got bank so *** if she aint a star alone. all my ballas get at me email@example.com
thas jacked up......
but come to me for that real hop
I wish her well and hope she can make it one day maybe she should try acting
AWWW....WHAT A SHAME..
keep ur head up kelly its not the end of the world
Kelly is pretty...but she can't sing...real talk...why has it taken them (execs) so long to figure this out...not being mean, just truthful....she should model or something...develop a skin care line or be a fashion consultant...she has beautiful skin...she needs to rock that as a hustle...because Destiny's Child is retired now...leave that singing ish alone...stop wasting time and money...
That's *** up, I hope she has a plan B... college degree!!!!
dang, I mean, she isnt a concrete artist that sticks in my head, but i didnt want her to be dropped and matthew knowles and solange to get the last laugh.
I mean, even with the implants, how do you market kelly??? she isnt a chamillian. her look is always the same. she isnt in the news. her songs dont hit hard.
I atleast thought she would be a bigger hit in the UK
Wonder if she was blackballed?
wtf? i love kelly...i got a feeling Mr. knowles got sumin 2 do with this.
Its so ironic that Solange still has a career
Is she commercially viable?
Her music is good, but I doubt shes moving units
This is strange
she'll be aight
columbia is under the knowles' spell.
she sing better than beyonce anyway
and she don't over sing anything
like beyonce did at the awards show when she was singing with J. HUDD
Aw ***! Daddy Mat paid them off to get rid of her.
Kelly should have gone the acting route, instead. She couldn't shake being in Bey's shadow under Matthew's management anyway. I think there is some talent left in her somewhere.
I smell a tell all book in the future.....homegirl bout to get real mad and just start talking lol
She just needs to face the fact's! Her and Michelle that once these girl groups break up they all don't go on to have mainstream success out on their own. So now she has to do some soul searching and figure out if she has any other interests..... Looking for a unique gift? visit 4u2.com
This makes me sad, because unlike Beyonce, Kelly really can sing.
TO THE LEFT TO THE LEFT!!!!!
Just Because She Got Dropped Don't Mean Her Career Is Over .Sdfu MTO ..Act Like Columbia Is Tha Only Record Label Around...
Kelly's too FOINE! and she'll be fine.
I hope she gets help . .
Jay Z should help her out. .
She *** have burned her bridge
That sucks. I like her music.
I SAW THAT COMIN! BOY DID I SEE THAT COMIN!
i bet her stuff taste like sunshine
hell i coulda told you that after DC broke up...but of course there's no columbia w/o matthew for her..but she'll be back...prolly on an indie or sumthin...***...now that she free maybe here and the other former members can get 2gether and generate sum press
if SOlange can get signed to GEFFEN so can KELLY
POOR KELLY MY AZZ. YOU HAD AMPLE TIME, *** YEARS, TO GET IT TOGETHER, BE A GROWN WOMAN AND TAKE CONTROL OF YOUR UH-HEM "DESTINY". BUT YOU CHOICE TO BE IN SOMEONE'S SHADOW. WEAK AZZ.
IM NOT REALLY SURPRISE I MEAN SHE DID FLOP LIKE ON THE RECORDS THAT SHE PUT OUT!! I HPE SHE HAS A PLAN B.....
If anybody ever remotely thought, "no longer commercially viable" about me we would have a serious problem. *** Kelly I think it's time for you to get on your grind and hustle asap.
Well maybe that what she needs, new management and NEW label
People can never think about Kelly without thinking about Beyonce. That is why she can't get out of Beyonce's shadow. She needs to do something drastic to make herself shine so we can see her & only her.
You make a very good point. When Solange's album was released, she'd only sold like 30,000 units in the first week. Not by a WHOLE lot, but Kelly did sale more...
But hell, then again, Matthew would never put Kelly over Solange.
Holla at me Kelly we can make another hit together, at www.myspace.com/iamlyrik
what took so long for them to drop her? she needs to go to an indie label and try to change up her sound and style. maybe she can go into acting. I know shes not hurting for money because shes still making doe off of Destinys Child royalties. but if she wants to be in the public eye, she needs to get an image and sound make over. I think Solange is doing better than Kelly is career-wise. now you know thats sad
well she dont sell nothin o well
I guess she doesn't have it like Beyonce
Isn't it ironic, Letoya Luckett's career is in better shape than Kelly's?
...just shows being kicked out of a group can't stop you from reaching your destiny.
Hold the *** on how is KElly being dropped and Michelle *** ain't kelly is much better than her. I think this is a lie.
Oh well..she'll be alright..
lol. This isn't a surprise. This child doesn't have IT to be a solo artist..no matter how many plastic surgeries she has..
Kelly, I know you are in love with the Knowles and they've done oh soo much for you, and blah blah blah, but you have to GO. And GO FAR! Please. They've used you so badly. You are the closest thing to a real person they have, that's why the had to keep you close. Now that you've helped blown their daughter up, they don't need you anymore. Go write your book & TELL THE TRUTH. You deserve better, Kelly!
She did it to herself, by always praising Bey and never herself.
oh oh, sorry kelly
I hope it works out for her.
Wake me when your done
She will be okay. She wasn't meeting with Simon Cowell for nothing. She's a success in Europe, they love her there. Both of her CDs did well there.
I feel sorry for those girls!! And beyonce don't give a dam!!! Poor Kelly! Go get your degree.
This is not surprising. If she changed managers, then it makes sense to leave the record company that didn't do a *** thing for her over the past five years as well.
Trust me, Kelly will be moving on to another record company, this is all a part of the machine to switch up everything from management to label - look for a new label deal to be announced soon after she leaves this one (IF she leaves this one).
It wouldn't surprise me at all if Mathew Knowles is behind this. But on another note, if it's true and she can't get another deal, I don't feel sorry for her because she allowed Matthew and the family to make her look like a fool for too many years.
Come on, SOLANGE is a bigger star than Kelly andd Michelle at this point - and if that doesn't say that Mathew didn't give a *** about them, nothing will.
How is it that more people know the names Mathew, Solange and Tina, than the other 2/3's of the most successful female group in the past 10 years????
@carmelcorne...I AGREE...SHE WAS ALWAYS PRAISING BEY & UP UNDER HER BRA STRAP! BEYONCE ALWAYS STOOD OUT FROM ALL OF THEM. MATTHEW MADE SURE BEY ALWAYS HAD THE MOST SKIN SHOWING & THE BEST OUTFITS ON!
KELLY...SORRY BOO BOO BUT UR REALLY NOTHING W/O BEY & I DON'T EVEN LIKE BEYAWNCE!
In the U.S & the U.***?! Wow. Sorry to hear that. I wonder what business venture will she take on now.
Lies Lies Lies! Kelly is working on an album now y'all...
*** kells,,get it together ma!!!
*** kelly u just don't have no luck.
She will be alright.....
OMG!... and i thought she was moving on to great things.....gosh thats some bulls**t their.
I hope she lands something major in the future coz homegirl has some talent left.
All that $h1t people talked about Matthew... BUT look?
WHAT MANAGER & RECORD COMPANY (MWM) YOU KNOW WILL STILL PUSH & CODDLE AN ARTIST SELLING 20K (Michelle) & 85k (Kelly)???
NO ONE BUT MATTHEW KNOWLES.
I wonder if this is true.... NOW?
See what happens when you do something that Beyonce's camp don't like? They can your ***!
int like the way kelly looks
her face bother me
moldy bread face ***!!
...and im not saying that because she is dark, luvtakeoput
*i dont like*
I BELIEVE IN KELLY ROWLAND'S AND IM SURE SHE WILL FIND ANOTHER LABEL THAT WILL RECONIZE HER TALENT !!!
SO U GO GIRL !!
Matthew is one *** up human being, why stifle someone's career?? yea you love your girls and you want the best for them both...but dayuuuum give every one a fair chance Kelly is as talented, Solange have no business singing and thats the truth she is grown and yet she sounds like a ten year old at a karaoke...leave the singing to Bey ur idol the one you try to imitate LAME!! Kelly ur time will come.
She should have stop f-cking with Beyonce and them a long time ago. They seem like a shady azz family. Stay strong Kelly.
a wise man one told me.......if you burn your bridge, u better know how to swim. this is another destruction project by the MATBEY corp.now its on to michelle, they'll make easy work of her.
Look at the caption on that pic. Lol. And I thought I was mean.
Kelly just need to snag a man, settle down and have some babies. If she don't get a hit soon and a contract, her best days will be behind her. I was hoping she'd branch out into acting. She did pretty good on those Girlfriends episodes.
She'll be alright. Wasn't MC dropped from Columbia too? Look how strong she bounced back!!!
GOOD SHE WASN'T ALL THAT ANY WHO!!
If this true, she had Mathew Knowles to thank for that. I would say Beyonce, but I don't she was apart of it.. oh well.
Kelly's relationship with tha Knowles' wass strained from the get-go. From the latter part of the second album, to the changing of the group members and everyone wanting to go solo.
The fate of Destinys Child and Beyonce's solo career was already predetermined before it happened. So I am not at all phased by this.
GOD DON'T EVER CLOSE A DOOR WITHOUT OPENING A WINDOW. THIS IS A BLESSING IN DISGUISE. SHE'LL BOUNCE BACK STRONGER THAN EVER.
she lacks star power and is not ***.kin the right people....
So what, one door closes another one will open, just be patient.
Until something better comes along, there is always Broadway!
"they are set to drop here any day now" mto any day now? yo *** is lyin! if they wanted drop so bad why set a date...besides the music business aint rly poppin like it used to anywayz, she need get to the actin thats where them dollars at!
we all ***@fckin kn0w..SHE aint sh!t with0ut foxy..bey..bey..beyonce!..waaaaaaaaaaaaaa!
Who the hell is Kelly? After Destiny's Child she basically vanished in thin air.
MTO please That Great Manager aint do *** for Lyfe and he had a loyal following!
Kelly you will be ok. Pray against that demon family. If they loved you, they would have begged you to stay but your "friend" does nothing.
You were used sweety just like the rest of them girls. I tried to warn you NOT to get to comfortable because if they did it to them, what makes you so special!!!
Now call Latavia & Latoya to apologize since they will NEVER get that call from Bey! Devil ***!!!!
she just needs to sing backup and marry rich...
No surprise...She didn't produce at the cash register, and with the recession going on labels can't carry dead weight.
Good luck in the future Kelly.
Maybe Kelly, LaTavia, Letoya, and Michelle should get together and do something like a "Destiny's Child Survivor" or "Survivor" tour. They can perform material from their own albums/songs on the tour and then do a medley of Destiny's Child Songs together. They can probably get some up and coming singing girl groups to be the opening acts. This is just my opinion. Maybe they should check into the legalities of it first, but, just a thought...
well she wasn't makin any muzik anyway..
Well this isn't a big surprise. She'll just have to get on her grind and hustle hard just like Letoya Luckett did. It took Letoya a while but she proved that you can survive without the Knowles family management. She'll be aiight
NOT SURPRISED IN THE LEAST THIS IS THE PRICE KELLY HAD TO PAY LEAVING THAT OBEAH FAMILY, I'M SURE SHE DONT GIVE TWO *** IT WAS ALWAYS GOING TO BE ALL OR NOTHING WITH THAT PEDAPHILE *** MATTY,KELLY KEEP YOUR HEAD GOOD LUCK WITH YOUR NEW FASHION SERIES :-}
you didnt see it comin..
it dnt matter where she go she'll never ever have a career...
&& yall keep talkin about my *** bee....
hop the *** off her backkkkkkk
@trixie LOL "that pedophile ***"......I think Kelly will survive.....someone will pick her up and I pray that they give her some hot tracks. The Knowles family are some very evil people and I'm sure that Matthew had something to do with it. He loves to throw his weight around and intimidate people, but Kelly took the first step and that's walking around from those negative people.
For the people who think I come down hard on Bey. It's not because I'm a hater, ITS BECAUSE IM INFORMED and dont give a ***** about her dancing or ok singing!
She is a big @ss LIE and should be called out to REALLY give straight answers for ONCE IN HER LIFE!!!
Either she is just so stupid and naive OR she's JUST AN EVIL ***!! You be the jusdge>>>>>
Sky News reports:
The devout Christian says she has permission from God to wear sexy clothes and strip on stage but not to have a girl-on-girl snog. ... She says: "I always carry myself like a lady. I don't feel like I ever do anything raunchy." And she adds: "It's entertainment and I believe God is OK with that."
DOES THAT NOT SOUND DEMENTED TO YOU???
WAKE UP PEOPLE!!!!!!!
Beyonce SAYS about her stripping on stage>>>
"It's entertainment and I believe God is OK with that."
IS THAT IN YOUR KING JAMES????? I can't find it in mine!
She sucks. I'm surprised she has held on this long. She hasn't had one hit....not one...
to da left,to da left LOL
sucks to be her, what too so long?
Can't miss what you neva had Mediatakeout. Her career was already a wrap when she was signed. Keep ya head up Kelly.
She sucks. I'm surprised she has held on this long. She hasn't had one hit....not one...
She did manage to score one hit with 'Like This' Featuring Eve.
Man who are they kidding dropping Kelly naw they should have drop beyonce *** at least Kelly don't try to prostitute herself like that troll.
That skank Is 'Married' and still acting like she's loose single etc..
Thank-god kelly Isn't like that..
But on the real Kelly should get Into Modeling she has a very cute face! Go gyrl!!
I AGREE THAT IT WAS ONLY A MATTER OF TIME BUT I LOVE KELLY! IF ONLY HER PROMOTIONAL SQUAD DID A BETTER JOB!
Must be alot of children on this site.
First off when Kelly decided to switch management, she also wanted to switch labels.
She's about to have a fresh start on a her career. She's broken ties from Matthew and Columbia ! Brand new start !
She'll be alright, In a few months MTO will be reporting who she's already signed with !
Dammm..BE STRONG GIRL!
Had to play like this on youtube as I write this cuz I actually like that cut. I heard a couple a songs on that album I liked.
I remember all of the "support" she was supposed to get from the sistas, and they let her flop.
Oh yeah, now I remember. I saw her video "Come Back" on youtube. Sexy Video. The song was released in the UK.
While I'm at it her song GHETTO was thourough too on youtube. The music is relaxing as hell. Kelly has some nice thumps that people didn't know about!
Kelly album sold more than 4 MILLION albums worldwide while y'all playin'
@SAFARI1.. Can you imagine how he must be carrying on like how Beyonce concerts are not doing as well as they should,*** Matty must be going ballistic I see they are trying to *** down websites again two have been mysteriously hacked into.
well if you cant deliver thats what happens, i havent heard her come out with anything in a while, maybe the will give her time to try and rebuild herself.
She'll be alright. If solange is making it, then she can too. Hell if solange is making it, anybody can! LOL
kelly kills me idk if she is waitin for god to come down and give her a hit, if so he need to hit her upside her head...if da music scene aint workin get on ur hustle *** do some actin b will have nothin on u boo boo...be a soldier bout it kellz!
Kelly is a very beautiful woman. However, she's in dire need of new management or a new career.
some of yall hatin *** *** need to *** the hell up! Apparently yall are checkin for kelly since yall clicked on this story...hatin *** ***!!
I SEE THE KNOWLES' ARE STILL GIVING HER THE ***....***, THEY SURE DO PLAY DIRTY. AIN'T NO WAY THEY'RE GOING TO GIVE KELLY THE OPPORTUNITY TO POSSIBLY BECOME BIGGER THAN BEYONCE.
I'M SURE MATTHEW TOLD THEM TO EITHER DROP KELLY OR BEYONCE WON'T BE RENEWING HER CONTRACT.
SO, SO DIRTY MR KNOWLES!! TSK! TSK!
DO U GIRL...
She's talented. She can do well at another label. The real question is how much longer is she tied to current management?
Well, I always thought that Kelly was the most attractive one. To me, Kelly can sing, but she cant sing great. To me, because she is very attractive, and have some acting abilities, I think she should give acting a ***. Right now, when Beyonce is the number #1 black girl performer running things in the music world, non of the sistahs really dont have a great *** to fame right now, maybe Jennifer Hudson is number #1 too. The only two sistahs people are feeling right now is Rihanna, Beyonce, and Jennifer Hudson as well. To be honest, we dont know where Rihanna career is going because of the "Chris Brown" situation.
Kelly should ask to be Bey's personal assistant, wasn't she that when they was in the group together?
when i saw this lady crying on tv talking about her group mate(beyonce)like shes some god, i was baffled! how foolish can one get???
so kells, where did all that bu.tt kissing get you???
anywho, reFOCUS girl and get ur priorities right. u will be fine...
uhhhhhhhhh, don't u know this is the best move for Kelly... Like Ice Cube said; NOW SHE MAKIN ALL THE DOW !!!!! do ya research MTO !!!!!
My Identity Is Top Secret Folks !
well thats what happpen when you dont sell any records, im suprised they hadnt been dropped her!!!
Not at all surprised! Hopefully she can type or something!!! lol
wrap on the set!
For your info, MTO, some of the things you guys say are true, but get confirmation before you post stories like this. It has been announced that the split was amicable.
we been new that
to tell you the truth she really is
Kelly should do some acting. She was good in Jason vs Freddie.
