Kelly Rowland Recalls Blowing $30K In 30 Minutes And Other Financial Decisions That Led Her To 'Chill Out'

At some point in your childhood, you wanted to eat at McDonald’s. You go on to ask your mom if you all could stop there, and she hits you with, “Do you have McDonald’s money?” And while this is a question to a question — it is widely recognized as a resounding “no.” Disappointed by the news, you go home and find something to eat that’s already in the house. The new gag, there is a bunch of off-brand food and stuff you probably didn’t want. This is the story of many, and Kelly Rowland is a testament to the experience as well. Born Kelendria, the American singer and actress is a member of the iconic group Destiny’s Child. The group rose to fame in the 1990s and maintained that stardom well into the 2000s. Rowland, along with Beyoncé, Michelle Williams, and at one point LaToya Luckett and LaTavia Roberson arguably owned the girl group era during that time. Rowland and her bandmates went on to give the world hits like “Bills, Bills, Bills,” “Soldier,” and “Cater 2 U.” The group would go...

Exclusive: Kelly Rowland Talks Supporting Black-Owned Businesses Like Re'Gine Terry's Busy Baking And Why You Should Too

Kelly Rowland has been in the game for decades and knows a thing or two about launching a business, or in this case, flaunting one. This time, the entertainer is putting her support behind Busy Baking, the LA-based bakery owned and operated by Re’Gine Terry. As someone who is no stranger to partnerships that come with the business, Rowland has always been committed to supporting brands that align with her own values. She recalls working with brands like Candies early in her career, during the Destiny’s Child days, and how it has always been important for her to only get behind companies that she has an affinity for. “I remember how myself and the ladies always looked at those campaigns and thought that they were so cool. It was something that you strived to do or have — like seeing your campaigns everywhere,” Rowland told AfroTech exclusively. “We loved Candies, like genuinely, and we would wear them and our friends would get them. So, it was like being a part of the culture. I...

A Look Into Michelle Williams’ $10M Fortune And Success Outside Of Destiny’s Child’s Domination

It’s no secret that Destiny’s Child is not only one of the biggest girl groups of all time but also at the top of the best-selling. Before officially saying goodbye to their fans in 2006, the legendary group sold over 60 million records, according to Capital Xtra. While the trio of Beyoncé Knowles-Carter, Kelly Rowland, and Michelle Williams were a force together, they each went on to pursue successful careers in their own lanes. However, during Williams’ journey, she briefly hit a turn. In an interview with UBS, the Grammy-award winner shared that a lack of communication and misunderstanding with her financial advisor turned into a “substantial investment loss.” “Knowledge is powerful. Ask questions. It’s your money—you have a right to know what’s being done with it,” Williams told the outlet. But, we already knew that she was a survivor . Bossing up after the initial setback, Williams’ net worth sits at $10 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth. Now, here’s a look inside all...
