Kelly Rowland protests that Beyoncé was robbed at the Emmy Awards


Television Academy/FoxThe Beyhive was in an uproar when Beyoncé was shut out at the Emmy Awards, and her Destiny’s Child group member, Kelly Rowland, agrees that Queen Bey was snubbed.

Homecoming: A Film by Beyoncé, which aired on Netflix, was nominated for six awards: Outstanding Directing for a Variety Special, Outstanding Music Direction, Outstanding Writing for a Variety Special, Outstanding Variety Special, Outstanding Production Design for a Variety Special, and Outstanding Costumes for Variety, Nonfiction or Reality Programming.

Rowland says the 23-time Grammy winner deserved to be honored at the Emmys for the hard work she put into the film. 

“I know that she lost sleep,” Rowland tells Extra. “It was homecoming. You know what I mean, The culture of it. The pride in it. The passion behind it. The countless sleepless hours. I know what those are and I know what those were for her. So, yeah, I do think she was robbed.”

Rowland is very excited about Jennifer Lopez and Shakira performing at Super Bowl 54 in Miami. She remembers when she joined Beyoncé and Michelle Williams for a Destiny’s Child reunion at the Super Bowl 47 halftime in 2013 in New Orleans, she was extremely nervous.

“My stomach was in my eye,” she recalls. “That’s how like excited and nervous and anxious. You just feel like, I don’t know where my stomach is…All those nerves at one time.”

The 38-year-old singer recently launched her second fashion collection with Fabletics, and she’s recording the follow-up to her fourth solo album, Talk a Good Game, which she dropped in 2013.
