Anticipating Kelly Rowland’s forthcoming album is equivalent to the body’s fight to gain energy and nutrients — in other words, our souls are begging to be fed.
The bad news is, the singer is staying tight lipped about not only when the next meal is dropping, but what kind of food it’s going to be.
Ok, we can stop with the analogies.
On Monday night, HipHollywood caught up with Rowland while on the red carpet for her upcoming Lifetime romantic-comedy, Love By The 10th Date, and begged for the beauty to dish on her new music. “I don’t want to describe it,” she insisted. “It’s great music and I”m excited to be in the studio and I’m excited to have a direction.”
Kelly might have remained mum about what fans can expect, but she did respond to new rumors that the upcoming LP was going to be a dance album. “No! First of all, no one puts baby in the corner,” she said, quoting the popular movie, Dirty Dancing. “No boxes.”
The beauty also revealed that this past weekend’s global women’s march moved her to write. “I was so overwhelmed with emotion. Between emotion and lyric. It really moved me to write,” she said.
As for the women’s march, she explained that “we are demanding to be heard. You are going to hear us. Even if you try to ignore us … they can not. They can’t ignore millions of women having a voice and demanding to be heard. I’m so proud to be a woman; a nasty woman.”
Rowland’s project is due sometime this year.
Exclusive: The Bullet Scars That Will Forever Haunt Sheryl Lee Ralph’s Son, Etienne Maurice
Sheryl Lee Ralph shared a graphic photo on Instagram earlier this week of her son, Etienne Maurice, laying in a hospital bed bandaged up from bullet wounds. The purpose of the image was to be yet another voice calling to end gun violence.
On Wednesday, students across the country walked out of class to protest against gun violence, something that hit home for Ralph four years ago. “This mother wants #gunreform now! #guncontrol now,” she wrote.
It was during a night out in West Philadelphia that Ralph’s then 22-year-old child was robbed at gunpoint and shot three times; twice in the leg and one which grazed his forehead.
So as Ralph joined Wednesday’s national conversation about gun laws, HipHollywood talked exclusively with Etienne who shared exactly what went down the night a gun could have taken his life for good.
“I was shot four years ago, November 9 … I was black out drunk. The next thing I know I remember I woke up in the hospital, doctor said I had two bullet holes in my leg and a grazed bullet hole above my eyebrow.”
Maurice, who was robbed for his iPhone and his wallet, went on to tell us that this is something that he is reminded of constantly. “Having been shot is something that I carry with me every day. I still have numbness at the bottom of my leg from the nerve damage.”
And while he will always remember how he felt knowing his life almost ended, Etienne had a hard time fathoming how his famous mother felt. “We had the conversation about it last week and she said she peed on herself,” he told us.
For Maurice, he’s proud to see young children use their voices to make change. “There’s so many angles where we can talk about gun violence and how it’s effecting different communities,” he said. “Gun reform needs to take place now.”
Since that night, he hasn’t picked up a drink and has been now sober for four years. As for the suspects, a father-son duo, they are behind bars for attempted man slaughter.
