Kelly Rowland covers Runway Magazine
"Kelly Rowland" has really come into her own, she has shown the world that her beauty and talents are here to stay, but even a star as big as Kelly has had to tackle a few issues, she recently sat down with "Runway Magazine" and spoke about her past identity crisis with her desire to be of a lighter complexion.
“There’s so much peer pressure growing up, I had an identity crisis. I went to a predominantly white school and I was the only black girl. I can remember thinking: ‘I don’t want to be as dark as I am – I want to be a little fairer.’ I didn’t want to be me…Tina sat me in front of the mirror and said: ‘Girl, look at how pretty you are.’ She made me feel comfortable in my own skin.
