“Barely move, we’ve arrived. Lookin’ sexy, lookin’ fly. Baddest chick, chick inside…” Moving with her mother from Atlanta, Georgia to Houston, Texas when she was only eight years old, Kelly Rowland found life in the Lone Star State to be ever better after she met and befriended Beyoncé Knowles and LaTavia Roberson. Together, the girls and three others formed the group Girl’s Tyme and caught the attention of an R&B producer on the West Coast who encouraged them to make their debut on Star Search. Losing the competition, the group underwent a series of changes before Rowland and Knowles teamed up with Michelle Williams to form a trio known as Destiny’s Child.Advertisements:

Throughout the 1990s, the trio skyrocketed to stardom with international hits like “Bills, Bills, Bills,” “Bootylicious,” “Jumpin’ Jumpin” and “Say My Name” topping the charts and sealing their fate as one of the best-selling girl groups of all time. When the group split in 2005, Rowland and the others rode the heels of their Destiny’s Child success to launch their solo careers—a decision that has undeniably paid off! While Beyoncé has obviously earned the most fortune and fame of the group, Rowland enjoys moderate success with four solo albums—her latest, Talk a Good Game, was released in 2013—featuring hits like “Dilemma, “Work” and “Motivation.”

Yet, even with her success as a solo artist and even a budding career as an actress with starring roles in films like Freddy vs. Jason and The Seat Filler, there was still something missing from Rowland’s life. Ever since she was in her teens, Rowland knew she wanted to go under the knife to enhance her chest and even begged her mom for permission. “I wanted to get breast implants when I was 18, but my mom and Beyoncé’s mom told me to really think about it first. I took their advice and waited 10 years,” Rowland said.

Once she finally made the decision to have the surgery in 2007, Rowland did a little prep work of her own to ensure she was ready. “I tried on padded bras and walked around in them to see how it would feel,” she admitted. “You have to know what you’re getting, no matter what type of surgery it is.”

Obviously not damaging her career or reputation in Hollywood, the surgery undoubtedly worked in Rowland’s favor as the young R&B singer and actress started touring with some of the biggest names in music while fielding dozens of acting offers. Thanks to her rekindled popularity and even greater self-confidence, Rowland made her way back to primetime television in 2011 when she joined The X Factor UK as a celebrity judge, not to mention releasing her own fitness DVD as well.

Since coming forward about her breast enhancement surgery, Rowland has been tight-lipped about any additional procedures although many argue her chest isn’t the only part of her body that’s been enhanced and tweaked. Although she has yet to make any official comments, before-and-after photos of the now 35-year-old musician lead many to believe that she’s had a rhinoplasty since her nose is now smaller and straighter than a decade ago.

Whatever the case, Rowland makes no apologies for turning to plastic surgery to enhance her look and boost her self-confidence. “The decision was 10 years in the making, so I’m comfortable talking about it,” she said. “It’s something I really wanted to do for myself, not for a man, not for work, for myself. And I love them!” After her surgery, Rowland revealed, “I simply went from an A-cup to a B-cup. I didn’t want to have double D’s and be a little bitty size two, that would look nuts!”

Already in great physical shape, Rowland’s recovery process was exceptionally short, which allowed her to get back to work even sooner than she anticipated. Because of that and the widespread encouragement and praise she’s received from her fans, the “Like This” singer says she would do it again in a heartbeat especially if it meant looking even more fabulous in her clothes. “I’m so happy, I feel so complete,” she exclaimed.

Today, the 35-year-old Rowland is still in the spotlight with her career stretching nearly two decades and boasting several awards and nominations including four Grammy Awards, two Billboard Music Awards and a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Most recently, she’s appeared as Leah Walker on the hit series Empire and has over three dozen songs set to release over the next year. But, that’s not all! Beyond her career, even her personal life is blossoming as she prepares to celebrate her third wedding anniversary with her husband and manager, Tim Witherspoon, in June 2017. Add in the fact that her son, Titan, will turn three next November and it seems like Rowland truly does have it all—family, fortune and fame!
