Kelly Rowland has been emotionally open about her experience in “constant comparisons” with her fellow Destiny’s Child performers Beyoncé and Michelle Williams.

The 41-year-old Say My Name singer was a founding member of Destiny’s Child along with 40-year-old Beyoncé and the women who performed together since 1993 before disbanding in 2006.

Kelly sat down with Queer Eye star Tan France in a BBC documentary about colorism, a form of discrimination based on skin color.

Kelly has spoken out about colorism in the past and told the Netflix reality star how she first learned the word.

She said she had a boyfriend whose grandmother compared her to “the color of a paper bag” and said she was “too dark chocolate for him”, insisting that he can’t date her.

Kelly added: “What the hell did I say. I said what does that mean?

“I went home and talked to my mom about it and she said that was the definition of colorism.”

She continued: “It affected me in a way that I was always unsure of what I looked like. It began to define what beauty means to me.

“In the entertainment business, it manifests itself in constant comparison. When it comes to my skin tone, I’ve heard everything left and right – ‘she’s darker, she’s the darkest of the bunch, she’s chocolate’. I will always hear that. “







“In the entertainment business, it shows in constant comparison.”

Tan, who opened in the documentary about her own experience with the dyeing and bleaching process, asked Kelly if she’d ever tried bleaching creams, to which she said she hadn’t.

She replied, “I never thought I wanted to use bleach as much as I thought I just wanted to be Mariah Carey’s shade. That’s someone I admire a lot. ”

Sales of skin bleaching products reach £7 billion – and are growing – annually.

Tan revealed in the BBC2 documentary, Tan France: Beauty & the Bleach, that some UK clinics bleach with liver disease drugs as a side effect of skin lightening.

He tells of his first bleaching: “When I was 9 years old, I stole my sister’s bleaching cream and did it behind a locked door. It really hurts. And then it feels like a really bad sunburn.

“I did it again when I was 16 – ashamed of my ethnicity and color. I know now bleaching is a form of self-harm.”

Tan said he hopes his documentary will help debunk the beauty myth that white is better, after a psychotherapist diagnosed him as deeply traumatized by racist abuse. that he suffered as a child.
