Kelly Rowland Admits to Breast Implants

Kelly Rowland Admits to Breast Implants

Kelly Rowland tells People in its March 17 issue that she had breast implants last October, bringing her “from an A-cup to a B-cup.”

Rowland admits, “I didn’t want to have double Ds and be a little bitty size 2 – that would look nuts!”

The 27-year-old singer former Destiny’s Child member did it for fashion’s sake.

“I was sick of not fitting into my tops,” she says. “There was this one really hot House of Dereon top (designed by Beyonce‘s mom, Tina Knowles) that I just wanted to fill that out! [After the surgery,] I put it on and I looked so good! I’m so happy. I feel complete.”

But Kelly has some wise, wise words for anyone thinking about getting plastic surgery: “It is a decision I made for myself. I like it, and that’s all that counts. For young people: Think about it before you just jump off and do something (you may regret later).”

Kelly‘s power of prayer certainly helped her in the breast of times.

    LMFAO. She got them so she could fit into a Beyonce top. LAME.

  • Sinna

    I think her reason for getting implants seems superficial and stupid. And any good designer would be able to make to clothes to fit her body type. Why would she put herself through that to fit into Tina and Beyonce sh!tty cheap looking clothes.

  • Nando

    I agree. Lame.

  • Helena

    So she got it done because of one top?

  • Regina

    I always think that people who get surgery is superficial. You should be happy with the way you are, though I’m not stopping anybody as it’s not my life.

  • Regina

    are superficial*

  • janice

    I knew it and I said it in my previous comment when this first came out. Finally she admitted it cos it was so obvious. She is a size 2 skinny girl and to just fill up like that all of a sudden is mind blowing and leaves room for questions. It has to do with so self low esteem and these days, breast is all that matters. I wish and hope that Beyonce will also one day admit that she had implants too. I have said it before and I will say it again, Beyonce also got implants, that goes to show that these girls do not have self esteem as they want to make us believe. They are still not happy about the size of their small breast and want to “upgrade” At least Kelly was being truthful. Beyonce it’s your turn now to tell us the truth.

  • sammantha

    Are u sure she only went up to a B cup?? seems quite big for a B…..

  • summer

    Yeah, a B cup. Im a B and those are bigger than mine! Um looks like she’s more of a C cup.

  • remember da truth

    Oh please, people, you think she got implants just to fill out one top? How dumb ARE people here?

    Of course she’s been thinking about it a long time and she used that as an example. And no, designers fitting clothes exactly for every body type is a fantasy. If you want to spend the money to have custom fitted clothes, sure, but most people, even celebs, want to see something they like and be able to wear it and if you have an A cup, you dont’ look right in any clothes.

    It’s not always a self-esteem issue. Sometimes it’s just being able to make your body the way you want it. Reducing breasts is also not a self-esteem issue, or staying in shape, or having a nose job. Get real.

  • gypsy Marie

    B cup my ass!

  • remember da truth

    And yeah, I have to say…… That ain’t no B cup!! She went to a C, that’s as obvious as the fact that she had implants.

  • fresh

    She said it herself, Remember the truth. She got them to fill out her shirts, and the poor girl didnt fit into Beyonces design and was sad. Then she got her boobs and she could fil them out. YAY FOR HER!!! She can now fill out a top!! *insert a healthy dose of sarcasm here*

  • remember da truth

    Perhaps you didn’t read what I said. If you are flat-chested, no clothes fit right. I have a friend who could BARELY fill out an A-cup. She didn’t have self-esteem issues, she just wanted bigger boobs so clothes could fit right and she could like how she looked in them.

    Did you read my post?
    It wasn’t one top from Beyonce’s line — she was using that as an example.

    And why do you care so much? Why does it bother you that she now has gorgeous breasts that look great in a bikini, or any other clothes? Why so bitter about someone else’s happiness with their plastic surgery? It sounds to me that YOU are the one with self-esteem issues.
    Threatened much by pretty girls?

  • Q

    Remember da truth, you pretty much took the words right out of my mouth. It’s nice to see some not-so-judgemental people here.

    I’m one of those people who was born with small breasts and it is a downright pain in the neck that I can’t wear clothes that enhance my “curves” — since there aren’t any. I’m not going to lie, sometimes it does dent my self-esteem a bit when I see something that I love but can’t wear.

    In the back of my mind, I’ve always wished that there was a way to make my cup size bigger without going through surgery (only because I’m a chicken). But get real people, you really can’t judge for something like that if you’ve never gone through it.

  • oye

    I say good on her. She’s got them done to please nobody else but herself and if having a boob job makes her more comfortable then why not? Its her body.

    There’s nothing wrong with having a boob job, I’m not sure why people make such a big deal about it all the time.

  • whatever

    Kate Hudson is not even an A cup and i remember her in some wonderful tops and dresses. Any body type can find suitable clothes. End of story.

  • lame

    Yeah, because only girls with big boobs can look great in tops.

    Cameron Diaz, Debra Messing and Gwen Stefani are only a few of the celebrities who have small boobs but manage to look good in whatever they wear. You would think those Destiny’s Child girls who preach about being strong women would be secure about their bodies.

  • Marleen

    That is not an B cup! It’s an big C or a small D.
    And she did it just because she couldn’t fit in a Beyonce top? That’s just stupid! Really stupid! If she wants to wear a Beyonce top so bad, she could just had it make smaller?
    She is really stupid!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Jen

    If that’s a B cup I’d have to say her B cup has runneth over!

  • fresh

    I dont really care that much at all. If she wanted to get them done Good For Her. But I didn’t like the reason she gave. But I do see where ur coming from. So let bygons be bygons. Peac.

    I think people have to realize that not everyone thinks the same. Something that may be high on one person’s lists of priorities may not even be important enough to make it onto another’s. That doesn’t make one better than the other. It’s Kelly’s body and if she thought breast implants were important to make her feel a little better about herself then so be it. I’m sure everyone has at least one body part they have at least thought about getting rid of/enchancing for whatever reason. So the people who are bashing her should get off their high horse and realize that we’re all human, we’re all equal so therefore never in a position to judge someone else.

  • BECKY ♥

    remember da truth…agreed.
    some people on here a just so empty headed… Youve said at least twice now how it want about beyonce’s top in particular that she was just using that as an example but some people still havent picked up on that fact .

    and big deal she got a boob job, for some reason it always seems to be the people who criticise smaller cups sizes that then turn around and criticise those to do get surgery to make them bigger : /

    but yeah theres no way there a b cup!

    & theres plenty of people who get bob jobs nowadays just becasue shes a celebrity and in the public eye doesnt mean

  • BECKY ♥

    ..that shes any different to the rest of us who have worried or are self conscious about parts of our bodies.

  • mary

    Geez, get off your high horses, people. Good for her for doing it if it makes her happy. How’s it hurting you, exactly?

  • Amber

    Not a B cup for sure. Good for her. She’s happy and she admits to it rather than lying she woke up and it grew over night. I do know one girl who said when she reached 23 her boobs just started to grow from a B to a C cup. Now, that’s annoying.

    Whatever makes you feel good about yourself, none of anyone else’s business.

  • pinkrose

    If you were seeing her for the first time you wouldn’t know ther were fake, because they don’t look like two grapefruits stuck on to her chest, with obvious ridges and outlines. They actually hang a little . That said, she stills looks kinda slim for such boobs.

  • Bri

    Wow, way to make girls with double D’s and size 2 jeans feel “nuts” looking. Being a girl with double ds and a size 3 (naturally), I’m kinda offended.

  • Here’s The Deal

    Her chest, her choice. Personally, I think if it makes her feel good and she’s happy with it, then why not? It’s not hurting anyone.

    That being said, her “girls” look good. They don’t even look fake.

  • do you kellz

    Kelly could have A, B, C’s or D’s and she’s still hot. Do you Kellz.

  • justa mia

    Breast implants are so 90s. And anyway, real stars do not have big huge boobs unless they were born with ‘em. What the H***, I never heard of this chick anyway before she announced her implants.

  • [marie]

    Sometimes your breast can be too big. There are some itty bitty tops that I would like to get into and I can’t because I would be overexposed. So it goes both ways….

  • lola

    I have nothing against her surgery, but the reason does sound shallow.

    –read my blog at

  • kandice

    janice you are right, beyonce needs to fess up, she too has breast implants. and the real reason why kelly and other women get breast implants is because they are insecure, it’s not all about fashion.

  • jess

    she feels complete now…. she must have some real issues if breasts were keeping her from feeling complete.

  • Athinker

    I am glad she was honest (though it would be hard to lie about it) but her reasons seem a bit false to me. Still, it is her life. She is the one who has to live with her decisions not us.

  • janice

    Beyonce had a boob job too, not just Kelly but when is she going to announce that? the only thing is that Kelly’s own is bigger implants and she’s skinny so it makes it noticeable. Beyonce is way bigger than Kelly and with her somewhat big ass, it balances her out with her implants. I am still waiting for her to annouce hers. Indepent and strong destiny child, really? who knew they all had low self esteem just like everyone else.

  • grm

    what bothers me is the waste of it all. the money, and the resources that women in the “developed” nations choose to put into plastic surgery and anti-aging stuff is pretty gross when you think about how many people go to bed literally starving every night; and how many people die every day due to lack of access to basic medical supplies.

  • ne$$a


  • Afolabi

    I have always admires this young lady,I love her with strong passion.How could she have done that to herself

  • errrr

    remember da truth, who do you think all the haute couture designers are making THEIR tops for? take a look at any catwalk and you’ll be surprised at how few (read: zero) girls are walking down the runway with anything more than a small B-cup. Any designer worth wearing will tell you that clothes hang best on small-chested frames, which is why the breast measurements on their models are always minimal.

    to say that clothes don’t “look right” on flat-chested women is 1) insulting to women with small breasts, 2) a matter of taste (yours) 3) proof of your ignorance of tailoring.

    that said, I couldn’t care less if Ms. Rowland decides to put plastic on her chest — it’s entirely her choice. but to claim that clothes (especially those as notoriously tacky as the Knowles’ line) don’t look good on her small breasts is ridiculous. It’s sad that she couldn’t accept her body as is, but it’s her body and she can abuse it as she pleases.

  • jeni

    kelly? oh she is one of those girls from Dense-ity child what about
    doing something to enhance your brain instead of your breast and booty.

  • emale power

    Everyone has the free will to modify their body in the way that it is pleasing. It is very unfortunate though that we do not accept ourselves in the way in which we are created.

    It is often said that women modify their body parts to improve their self recognition but they dont realise what needs change is not the exterior but rather the interior of one self. The real reasons these women change themselves has more to do with how they are being women merely perceived in the media and the opposite sex.

    These women are contradicting themselves, first they speak about women empowerment which is about the female’s mind and not body and then they are portRaying themselves as sex kitten subservient to the male’s gaze. What is even more unfortunate is that we females look to these women who are battling with their own issues as Role Models when they simply are NOT!!

  • trisha Robertson

    As much as Kelly Rowland wants to front… she did feel ways about her body. There is no way that you would go to a consultation, book appointments, see breast augmentation doctor’s, get knocked out, get cut, get jel sockets placed inside your body, JUST FOR THE SAKE OF CLOTHES & FASHION…….. HELL NO!!!! Kelly I’m sorry girl, I do admire you for coming out with it and keeping it real for the public about getting them…but you’re not keeping it real about why you got them. Living the “Hollywood Life” you’re going to start to want the breasts if all your ‘celeb friends’ have it…. I’m sorry, but that’s the truth.

    I’m a petite girl myself, only 5’2 1/2, cup size boarder line A/B. I have been contemplating for a year about getting breast implants and I have made up my mind to do so as well, and straight up IT IS FOR ME and not for NO MAN, but it is for the fact that I do feel less of a woman for not having a bit bigger in my top portion. I don’t doubt my looks at all, in fact I know I’m really pretty….. I get enough attention, but it really isn’t about that. It is about how I feel about me, and at the end of the day I feel that I would feel better about myself with breast implants. So ENOUGH RESPECT to Kelly for doing it and being honest about it, but I know that deep down she was feeling low about her cup size as well….. it definitely had nothing to do with fashion.

    PS – I agree with one of the other comments, it’s time that Beyonce stepped up to the plate and admitted she got breast implants too. Take after your girl Kelly and be honest with your fans.

  • olly hawes

    erm…erm…erm…i think kelly’s propbably a bit of a penis. err..i don’t i don’t really care about her. erm…erm.. nelly seems a bit of an idiot too. sorry i’m being so rude, erm… see you around kelly. i think youre really swell and hot. when are you next touring babezzzz. ere what’s this i hear about all this boob stuff? sounds like a bit of a handful to me. tell me is she really an idiot, no, no, no no no tell me
    did she really do it for herself? or is she adhering to an oppresive and a conservative view of what a woman should be shaped like.
    I think the latter i think the latter, i think it.

  • jeanaaa

    jesus christ leave the girl alone!!!! it’s very annoying when everyone blames socity and the media for people wanting bigger boobs…

    i don’t blame her for getting a boob job because she was tired of fitting in to certian tops…i’m 5’1″ and 125-130 lbs and i’m only a 32A…i’m built slender but with a larger bone mass and i’m curvy from the hips below…whenever i wear certian dresses it will fit perfectly at the bottom but feels loose and baggy at the’s quite annoying that when i wear low cut tops and certian halters or spegetti straps without looking down at myself and literally feel like i’m a junior high school whore because of the way certian tops pop out and i look underdevoloped being only 5’1″ on top of it…

    good for her for getting a boob job for the right reasons she knows exactly what she was doing and she looked it through and thought about it over and over and figured out what was right for her and honestly i’ve actually thought about getting a boob job myself because i have the same problem as her
