Kelly Rowland Says She Will No Longer Perform “Dirty Laundry” Live After Breakdown In DC

We hope your favorite Kelly Rowland song isn’t “Dirty Laundry.” Despite telling Kelson of 93.9 WKYS radio:

It’s really weird when you take yourself in front of a crowd. Even in that moment of when I put my feet up, I felt like I was in therapy. I was singing and talking about what happened, and for a moment, it was like that crowd wasn’t even there. And then when the music stopped…I was like “You are live Kel. Calm down.” And I had to calm down, and in the moment, I had to breathe. You get lost…and it’s nothing wrong with getting lost. But that was weird. That won’t happen again though [laughs]. I felt like I could do that with D.C.

On breaking down during her “Dirty Laundry” performance in the state capital, Ms. Rowland has said she will NOT perform the song again because she doesn’t think she will be able to get through it without crying. According to band mates, Kelly was very upset with herself backstage over the breakdown. During an interview with Billboard magazine, Rowland described how emotional it was for her to record the song. According to Billboard it took Rowland “nearly a dozen takes to lay down her vocals without crying” and that during the recent album listening sessions for Republic Records, she “had to leave the room before the song was played.” During the same interview, Rowland said “It took me days to record. I had to get past being so upset and actually sing the song, not sob through it.”

Rowland has said if fans do request “Dirty Laundry” she is touring with @JadeNovah and will get the infamous Keyonce Bowles to do the cover.

Will you still attend a Kelly Rowland concert if she herself doesn’t perform “Dirty Laundry?”
