Beyoncé Knowles-Carter may be basking in the joys of motherhood, but sister-friend Kelly Rowland says she’s not quite ready to be about that mommy life and seeing Bey with baby Blue is not giving her baby fever. The “Kisses Down Low” singer recently chatted it up with E! News on the red carpet at the Elle Women of Music event in New York. She honestly revealed to Alicia Quarles that she’s not ready to be a mother just yet and has no shame in admitting it.
“I’m not ready, I’m not ready to have a child. I can be very honest,” she revealed.
“Because right now, I’m a bit selfish, a lot—I was gonna say a little—but I’m still selfish,” 32-year-old Rowland added.
She went on to say that she really enjoys having her time to herself and that she isn’t exactly ready to share it with another person.
“I like my time, I like to wake up whenever I want to and I like to come and go as I please. I don’t know if I’m ready to share that time with another person, I don’t wanna mess them up,” Kelly confessed.
She did, however, reveal that she’s down to babysit baby Blue if ever Bey needed her to. We certainly can’t blame Ms. Kelly for wanting to do her thing before settling down and having babies. It seems that there is a lot more she hopes to accomplish, not to mention her forthcoming Talk a Good Game album, which is slated to drop later this year. It’s hard not to respect her honesty.

On Saturday, January 7th, 2012, an American princess was born. Blue Ivy Carter, first born, heir to a Throne that has roots firmly cemented in the struggle and diversity of Black America. Her dad, a Hip Hop superstar, former Marcy projects drug dealer and an icon of a generation. Her mom, adored by men, women and children, was bred in upper-middle class environs.
With her parents idealistic career, fame and wealth, it’s not surprising that Blue’s birth has caused such a media frenzy. People go crazy over cute nobody babies on Youtube all the time. Mix that with the over the top emotions typically released by Jay and Bey fans and you have the perfect storm of mass media hype.
But while the public gets swept away with fantasy baby shower gifts and conspiracy theories, you may be so nauseated that you miss the true significance of Blue’s coming. While whispers of Illuminati are over the top, there is certainly more to baby Blue, or the impact her presence has on Black America and mainstream media, than meets the eye.
