Kelly Rowland Addresses Rumors of Destiny's Child Reunion at Coachella
Kelly Rowland has no plans (as of yet) to reunite with her Destiny’s Child band members.
The Bey Hive was buzzing about a possible DC reunion after much-talked about speculation that Michelle Williams, LaToya Jackson and LaTavia Roberson were dropping hints that they will be performing together again with Beyoncé at her rescheduled headlining sets at the Coachella Music Festival in April.
“I have no idea about any of that,” Rowland told PEOPLE at the Baby2Baby Holiday Party Presented by Toys”R”Us at Montage Beverly Hills on Sunday.
As for why she thinks DC fans have looked into the subtle clues so much, Rowland said she actually reached out to the followers herself.
“I just asked a fan about that. They were like because it’s just cool. They used the L word and said legends,” she shared. “I mean, I gladly accept that very much but it’s nothing that we recently talked about.”
The last time any members of Destiny’s Child took the stage together was in February 2013 when Rowland and Williams took part in the Super Bowl halftime show with Beyoncé.
The DC reunion rumor mill kicked into overdrive last week when the Bey Hive read into a photograph of Beyoncé wearing an AC/DC shirt with only the “DC” showing as a nod to a Destiny’s Child–related clue.
Additionally, around the same time as the AC/DC reference, Williams teased her Super Bowl outfit with a bee emoji while Roberson teased a forthcoming top-secret project. But it first all started when Jackson shared a throwback photo of the original group members in late October.
Beyoncé backed out of her headlining set at the 2017 desert music festival after her rep confirmed to PEOPLE that the high-profile performance was considered risky due to the advanced state of her pregnancy with twins Rumi and Sir.
Though Rowland denied any future DC reunion, music is very much still a part of her present day.
“2018 new music. What I’m excited about [fans] most to hear is probably stories I’ve never told on this album,” she told PEOPLE. “I haven’t released a record in five years.”
In addition to being back in the recording studio, Rowland continues to give back to the charities she cares most about, including Baby2Baby, which provides low-income children ages 0-12 years with diapers, clothing, and all the basic necessities that every child deserves.
“I was pregnant and [co-president Kelly Sawyer] told me the work that they do with Baby2Baby and how they give back to mothers and children. I was just like ‘Oh my gosh I’d love to be a part of it,’ ” Rowland recalled at Sunday’s event which brought together nearly 100 families Baby2Baby serves for an afternoon of holiday celebration, which included a Toys”R”Us pop up shop where each child choose from a selection of gifts to take home for the holidays.
“I found out when I was pregnant and she told me, ‘People are going to send you a lot of stuff and there’s probably stuff that you won’t use and there are moms and kids who need it.’ Between products and cribs, it’s so many things,” she said.
Adding, “You just think about I would want someone to have that concern and thought about me if I wasn’t able to do that. It’s such a beautiful community of mothers and their families who care about these families so I’m very proud.”
