Though Michelle Williams took the high road when responding to Keyshia Cole‘s mean girl tweets following the “surprise” Destiny’s Child reunion during Beyonce’s electricity snatching Super Bowl performance, Kelly Rowland didn’t hold back her amusement that little Miss Keyshia tried to come at the throne. In an interview with Rolling Stone to promote her 4th solo album, Talk a Good Game, Rowland’s statement can pretty much be summed up in two words: Keyshia who?
You reunited with Destiny‘s Child at the Super Bowl. Keyshia Cole received some blowback for criticizing Michelle Williams‘ performance on Twitter. Do you have any thoughts on her comments?
It didn’t even make it on my radar until other people brought it up. It didn’t even matter. We had a wonderful performance, and that’s all I cared about. I was with my sisters and the three of us matter to each other, and that’s all that counts. We matter to a lot more people, with all due respect, than her. So, I really don’t care what she said. You can keep the change, Keyshia. During the Super Bowl half-time performance, Cole tweeted the following:

Michelle Williams can add “reality star” to her ever growing resume. The Destiny’s Child member will star and produce “My Sister’s Keeper.” The show, which will be distributed by Entertainment One Television will follow Michelle as she prepares to release her third gospel album, as well as balance her family and personal life. In a press release, Michelle shared: “Working together on my new gospel album and television series, I am excited to share with everyone a behind-the-scenes look at the inspiration and journey of recording for the album, performing, fun family times and other unforgettable experiences out together with my dear sisters.” In addition to her guest cameo in Beyonce’s epic Super Bowl halftime show, Michelle is currently on a nationwide tour of the Tony Award winning Broadway musical “Fela.”
Keyshia Cole isn’t backing down on her criticism of Destiny’s Child singer Michelle Williams, as she unleashed on Michelle on Thursday. This comes after Michelle shrugged off the comments, saying that women should learn to stick together. Keyshia fired back, tweeting “Sounds about right! Cause I didn’t give a s— what she thought about my soul train performance when she spoke her s— RT @UrbanBelleMag: Michelle Williams says she doesn’t care what Keyshia Cole thinks about her SB performance.” She continued, “Gonna say this again! Michelle spoke on me first. So it was open season to state my feelings on her. I always felt that about her. Just never said it. Until she spoke on me.” It’s doubtful Michelle will respond to Keyshia’s diss given her previous comments about women banding together instead of falling apart.
After Beyonce tore New Orleans’ Superdome up with a her performance and the surprise reunion of Destiny’s Child, Keyshia Cole took to the Twitter streets to praise Bey and throw mad shade at the red head step child of DC. Keyshia tweeted, “I think I was frightened to blink for a sec. Then Michell sung and woke my ass up from my daze! She always f*ckN the groove up.” Michelle hasn’t responded to Cole’s jab, but she did post a tweet earlier in the week about not allowing the negativity to take up space in your brain. Though Williams hasn’t said anything to Keyshia Cole, plenty of fans have spoken up on Michelle’s behalf by calling the “Heaven Sent” singer petty and childish.
Keyshia Cole didn’t have to air Michelle Williams out like that on a social media site, but it’s not like she said anything most of Destiny’s Child fans haven’t been saying for years. How many jokes have you made about Beyonce and Kelly treating Michelle like a field slave by only giving her the bridge on a track to sing? How many times have you listened to a DC song only to skip it when Michelle’s part comes on? If everyone loved Michelle they way they say, there wouldn’t be a Tumblr called Poor Michelle. Let’s be honest with ourselves. Obviously, Keyshia Cole is.
