Kelly Rowland Misses Her Days in Destiny's Child

Kelly Rowland strikes a pose while arriving for her Chasing Destiny interview held during the 2016 SXSW Festival at Austin Convention Center on Saturday (March 19) in Austin, Texas.

The 35-year-old singer opened up about missing girl groups, including Destiny’s Child.

“There’s been so many artists — and there’s nothing wrong with it — who want to be solo,” Kelly told BET President of Programing Stephen Hill (via Page Six). “It’s what we’re used to right now. And like I said, there’s nothing wrong with it. But I think it’s time for another generation to see women coming together. I think it’s time for another generation to see camaraderie. I think it’s time for another generation to hear voices together. To hear the power of it, how exciting it is. How it’s a force on stage. That is something that is missed. Hell, I miss it.”
