Kelly Rowland has dismissed hopes that Destiny’s Child could reform because she and her bandmates “don’t want to scratch each other’s eyes out”.
Last month (July 8), Beyonce’s father Matthew Knowles revealed that two albums from the R&B group featuring unreleased material would be released this autumn, and also suggested that the trio could reunite to play live shows in the future. “I think that the ladies are still working happily in their solo careers,” he said, before adding: “I hope in the next five years that there is a reunion tour. I think it would be incredible.”
However, Jam reports that Rowland – who released her third solo album ‘Here I Am’ in July last year – has scotched hopes that she and her former cohorts will reform in the near future. “We have a good time together and I think that’s the most important thing,” she said of the band’s relationship, before adding:
We don’t want to scratch each other’s eyes out; we love each other too much. If [reuniting is] something that we would want to do, you know, [we would do it] but in the meantime we’re just enjoying each other’s friendship. That’s the greatest gift of Destiny’s Child.
Destiny’s Child last performed together at the NBA All Star Game in 2006, before going on to follow separate careers in solo music, acting and presenting. Rowland starred as a judge on the last series of The X Factor but confirmed in March that she will not be rejoining the panel for a second stint. Beyonce, meanwhile, gave birth to her and Jay-Z’s first child Blue Ivy Carter in January of this year, and picked up the gong for Best Female R&B Artist at the BET Awards in Los Angeles last month (July 1).
