Kelly Rowland Hits Back At Keyshia Cole Over Beyonce Super Bowl Performance Criticism

Keyshia Cole slammed Michelle Williams' performance during the brief Destiny's Child reunion

Kelly Rowland has blasted R&B singer Keyshia Cole for her criticism of Destiny's Child's performance during Beyonce's Super Bowl Halftime set last month.

The 'Independent Ladies' singers reunited on stage for the first time in eight years in the middle of Beyonce's headline slot during the NFL game in February, where she was joined by Kelly and Michelle Williams for a medley of their hits.

While most were amazed by seeing the trio on stage together, Keyshia hurled negative comments towards Michelle, tweeting: “I think I was frightened to blink for a sec. Then Michell sung and woke my a** up from my daze! She always f**kN  the groove up (sic).”

More than a month after the performance, 'Motivation' singer Kelly says she wasn't even aware of Keyshia's comments until she saw fans discussing it.

“It (her comments) didn't even make it on my radar until other people brought it up. It didn't even matter,” Kelly told Rolling in a new interview.

“We had a wonderful performance, and that's all I cared about. I was with my sisters and the three of us matter to each other, and that's all that counts. We matter to a lot more people, with all due respect, than her. So, I really don't care what she said.”

While Michelle has never directly responded to Keyshia's comments, she did shoot down rumours that she had replied to criticism on Twitter, admitting that she was too busy celebrating with Beyonce and Kelly to care.

“I would say, where did I have time? We were too busy celebrating, know what I mean? The unfortunate thing about social media (is) so many things can be fabricated. I did not tweet what was said that I tweeted,” Michelle told a radio station in Chicago last month.
