Essence magazine taped former Destiny’s Child member, R&B singer and X-Factor USA judge Kelly Rowland as the cover model of their September issue.
In an article that accompanies the the grunge and gothic inspired cover, Rowland divulges about the lead single “Dirty Laundry” from her new studio album Talk a Good Game, “For a long time I wasn’t happy, but that had nothing to do with Beyoncé,” Rowland says. “That had to do with me trying to get my life in order and make better decisions for myself. I’m seeing all these wonderful things happen for her and I am happy for her. But I want a path. I want things to pop off for me, too. Not on her level but whatever my level is supposed to be.”

Read the full article when the September issue of Essence magazine hits newsstands on August 9, 2013.
