While visiting HOT 97’s Ebro in the Moring- both Kelly Rowland and host Pete Rosenberg found themselves trending online after fans weren’t too pleased with Rosenberg seemingly comparing Kelly Rowland and her former groupmate, Beyoncé. “You happen to be standing next to the brightest light on planet Earth,” Rosenberg begins. “You think Big Boi from Outkast has it tough being next to Andre, and you’re with Beyoncé. Not only did you not fight it, but it also seems you like you really love the position you were in.”
Kelly was praised for her elegant response. She explains, “light attracts light, and I am light. So I am a beautiful brown shining light. I don’t think anybody’s light dims anyone else’s,” she said. ” I think that when other people start to compare you, I think that shows how dim they are of themselves.”
Following the viral moment, Rosenberg explained that his question was asked with no ill intent- in fact, he says it was “clumsy” and he understood why people were “annoyed” by it. He sends an apology to Kelly Rowland.
