Skin bleaching rumors have Kelly Rowland declaring she’s a ‘melanin queen’

Kelly Rowland insists she’s “proud to be chocolate” amid accusations she’s bleached her skin.

The 37-year-old singer has defended herself in an Instagram Story video after some of her followers noted that Kelly’s skin appeared to be lighter in some of the photos she recently posted on the website.

Kelly explained in a now-deleted video: “So I just landed in LA and I saw that a lot of people are like, ‘Oh my god, she bleaches her skin!’ Now, I never answer questions like this, because I think it’s so stupid or even say anything about comments about this … I am not the one to bleach my skin, nor do I want to bleach my skin, nor do I have to bleach my skin. I don’t even think that, it’s not for me. So, don’t go saying stupid stuff like that.”

Kelly – who first found fame as part of Destiny’s Child – insisted she’s proud to be who she is and that she doesn’t have any ambition to change. She said in the video: “Dude, I am still chocolate. Forever chocolate. Proud to be chocolate.”

Meanwhile, Kelly previously revealed that her three-year-old son Titan has helped her to feel more confident. The ‘Kisses Down Low’ hitmaker – who has been married to Tim Witherspoon since 2014 – feels blessed that her son came into her life just at the right time.

She said: “My son makes me feel confident. He’s just amazing. I’m like, ‘I did that right.’ “He came at the most interesting time of my life and I had no choice but to be strong. I want him to be better than me, it’s just that simple. So I always like to make sure I’m doing right by him.”
