After a whirlwind weekend reuniting with Kelly and Beyoncé to bring Destiny’s Child back to the masses on Super Bowl Sunday, the very gracious Michelle Williams is in good and positive spirits. This is good news seeing as so many people, including Keyshia Cole leading the pack, were criticizing Williams’ performance during the show as being stiff compared to Kelly and Bey, that she looked unhappy, and as Cole would say, she was “f****N up the groove.” But Williams only has good things to say about her time back on the big stage with her girls, telling Billboard that rumors that she wasn’t happy to be back performing with them and that she couldn’t pull her weight were false.
“Oh the Super Bowl was beautiful! When three good girlfriends are together, you’re free and you don’t care who’s around; you’re just trying to catch up and be goofy. I had a blast. People at home watching… they don’t catch the moments where, like in the ‘Charlie’s Angels’ pose, I was smiling. We were all smiling. I was laughing with my girls. I don’t care what anybody else says. I don’t let it get me down. It was a beautiful thing.”
She also posted on her Facebook page, stating the importance of women supporting one another before lauding the performances of Alicia Keys and Jennifer Hudson, who sang the national anthem and “America the Beautiful” on Sunday.
“It was an honor to share the stage with my sisters Kelly Rowland and Beyoncé on Sunday night. To all my ladies, we must learn to stick together and support each other. The incredible Alicia Keys and Jennifer Hudson did an amazing job too! Thank you to my sister Beyonce for sharing your moment with Destiny’s Child. Love you!”
So there you have it, Michelle isn’t sweating the small stuff, especially since she’s got steady work coming in, including touring with “Fela!” and finishing up on her fourth solo album, a gospel composition, to be released later this year. But with everybody extra crunk about the ladies recently putting out the compilation album, Love Songs, and reuniting on stage, Billboard decided to ask if the ladies would be reuniting once again soon musically. She seemed optimistic, saying, “Who knows. It’s a possibility. I think this was a good moment, and it felt good for all of us and you definitely want those moments again.” Check out her full interview about her new album and kicking it with DC once again via Billboard.
What do you think of her response? And what did you make of her performance on Sunday?
