Kelly Rowland has the rumor mill spinning this morning. After posting a picture of herself channeling Donna Summer’s signature look, multiple outlets are claiming that Rowland is campaigning for a role as Donna Summer.
The reports could be true thanks to a new Spike Lee movie were Donna is a character. The biopic, Spinning Gold is about Casablanca Records founder Neil Bogart. Bogart helped launch a number of musical acts including Kiss, Joan Jett and of course, Donna Summer.
Justin Timberlake is already signed on to play Bogart. What do you think? Could Kelly play Donna Summer?
Speaking of biopics, if Gladys Knight were to ever produce a film about her life, she says she’d want Kelly Rowland to be the leading lady.
“You guys remember when I asked you all who you’d like to see play the role of Gladys Knight in my biopic? Well… Here’s what I think:) @kellyrowland,” Gladys wrote in an Instagram post.
The iconic singer also expressed similar sentiments during an interview with CBS.
“I like Kelly Rowland,” Gladys said. “We don’t know her as an actress but there’s something about her and her spirit that kind of reflects with me.”
Kelly has yet to respond to Aunt Gladys’ comment, but it would be amazing if she’s open to it.
This has become a grand year for Kelly Rowland!
Besides marrying her manager Tim Witherspoon and expecting their first child, Rowland has launched her own watch collection line with TW Steel. TW Steel is a Dutch watchmaker company known for their oversized watch faces and chronographs. The company was launched in 2005 by Dutch father and son entreperneurs, Jordy and Ton Cobelens.
Yesterday, Rowland attended the launch party of her collection at the Feldmar Watch Company in Los Angeles. In a statement regarding her watch line, Rowland shared:
“I love fashion – it plays such an important role in the music industry. For me to now channel that passion into designing my own range of watches with TW Steel is pretty exciting.”

Will you be purchasing one of her timeless timepieces?
Looking like a million bucks, Kelly Rowland made her way onto the VMA red carpet in a gorgeous gown that showed off her growing baby bump. With her gorgeous glow and very chic braided hairstyle, Rowland turned heads. She’s present at the show to not only enjoy herself, but to support her girl Beyoncé. Michelle Williams has also arrived at the show to enjoy the festivities.
Speaking on her pregnancy recently, Rowland said she was embracing her body as her child grows.
“I feel good. I’m looking at my body in its entirety right now, and I almost cry. I could almost cry right now just thinking about it because it’s such a gift! It’s such an amazing gift.”
Check out another shot of Rowland looking fabulous below.
Kelly Rowland has been known for keeping her personal life private but perhaps the hormones and overflowing of love she’s feeling these days has gotten her ready to open up and tell all. Because in a recent E! News interview the singer couldn’t help but gush about how amazing her life is these days.
In talking about her partnership with Caress, she opened up about preparing for the birth of her first child, who is due this fall, with her husband and manager Tim Witherspoon.
“I’m extremely excited. First of course for myself and my husband. We couldn’t be more happy.”
She talked about how supportive and attentive he’s been to her during this time.
“He’s just super supportive. He’s like have you eaten today? Did you take your vitamins? Did you drink enough water? He’s so hands on and I’m just so blessed. I just love him, he’s like the greatest guy ever. He’s so awesome I just can’t believe how blessed I am…and he is too! He’s an amazing man.”
And he hasn’t been the only supportive person in her life. Rowland says even complete strangers are full of well wishes and advice for the mom-to-be.
“I’ve gotten the best advice from every woman! It’s at the corner of the street, at the grocery store, at the mall…It’s really sweet actually the way women have been towards me. They ask can they touch my belly, they just have good advice. They’re just supportive and that’s the way we’re meant to be an a unit. It feels really good to have that support.”
And as we’ve been able to see with her pregnancy workouts, Rowland is not going to be held down. She mentioned that she’s also been in the studio working on new music.
“Sometimes you do have those sessions where it’s almost too good to be true. You come up with these ideas and then the producers and writers start building on top of it and make a beautiful canvas.”
This just gave me warm fuzzies. We don’t even know the half of Kelly’s story but from what we do know, she’s been through a lot. And as someone who always roots for her to win, I’m so glad to see her so undeniably happy these days.
And just for good measure, check out Kelly, her man and her friend La La Anthony living and loving life in this recent Instagram sing-a-long video she shared.
It’s nice to see a more diverse group of women get shine in the media these days, and by diverse, I do mean women of color, but more specifically, the shades of black women we get to see on TV and in magazines. And not only are these women beautiful, but they are confident, and provide young girls with words of encouragement to embrace the skin they’re in. Here are 14 women who have done just that in a culture that spends too much time celebrating one homogeneous look.
Pregnancy, and happiness in general, look oh so good on Kelly Rowland. The singer shared the news that she is expecting her first child with husband and manager Tim Witherspoon last month, almost a month after tying the knot with her man in Costa Rica in May. The couple have kept their relationship before and after getting married, very private, but the singer decided to share a photo this past weekend of her and her hubby having a rare PDA moment.
Check out more images of the beauty and her baby bump below and share your thoughts.
‘It’s Going On MY Album:’ Michelle Williams Makes It Clear That ‘Say Yes’ Isn’t A Destiny’s Child Song
Destiny’s Child fans were ecstatic to learn that the trio would be somewhat reuniting for Michelle Williams’ new single “Say Yes.” And somehow, in all of the excitement, some people interpreted the track as a sign that a new Destiny’s Child album is in the works. Unfortunately, that isn’t the case. But we’re content for now seeing the ladies coming together to promote one another’s solo careers.
“There was an interview we did some years ago saying that we would participate, in whatever capacity, on each other’s solo projects,” Michelle explained to MTV News. “Whether that is appearing with Beyoncé from time to time on her tours, or on shows, or Kelly’s album, so this was my turn now to have them on an original song on my album.”
Michelle adds that it was awesome being able to reunite with her former group members.
“Filming the video for ‘Say Yes’ was fun. It was amazing. It was incredible.”
Not to be confused, though, Michelle made it clear that “Say Yes” is her project and simply features her DC-3 sisters.
“It feels wonderful [to work with them], and no matter how much we try to say it’s not a Destiny’s Child song because it’s not going on a Destiny’s Child album. It’s going on MY album featuring Beyoncé and Kelly. It’s the same way Kelly featured us on her album. But no matter how much we try to separate ourselves when we’re together, it is what it is. This is the group!'” she said laughing.
While we would loveeeeee another Destiny’s Child album, we’ll take what we can get for now

Jay Z, Beyoncé Start “On The Run” Tour With Support Of Kelly Rowland; Share Footage Of Blue Ivy’s Birth And Wedding
There were other very beautiful moments that were shared on the Jumbotron screen during their performances, but I don’t want to spoil too much for you (and myself). But you can check out the footage of Blue Ivy fresh out the womb, the day Beyoncé became Mrs. Carter, and a gorgeous and glowing Kelly Rowland below. The On the Run tour, despite reports of dipping ticket sales after that whole Met Gala drama, is already being touted by Forbes as one of the most successful tours of all time, and it’s just getting started.
If there was any doubt in your mind that Kelly Rowland is indeed pregnant, direct your attention to this photo she posted on her Instagram just hours ago.
Given that Kelly has been making appearances and even performing recently, we didn’t know how far along she was. But since she knows the sex of her baby (boy), we assumed it had to have been more than a couple of months. And sure enough, this picture confirms it. That belly is pokin’ and we love it!
Kelly is too cute!
Maybe her arms look a tad bit bigger but as the saying goes, she’s all belly.
I don’t Kelly or anything but judging from the type of relationships she’s had, I’m happy that she seems to be in a good place right now.
Congrats to her and her husband.
