Kelly Rowland reveals details of abusive relationship, sibling jealousy in visual for ‘Dirty Laundry’

Let’s do this dirty laundry.

As Kelly Rowland supporters and lovers of honesty in the face of the public eye, we believe ‘Dirty Laundry’ might be the best song of 2013. There’s nothing more honest or emphatic out there from her competitors. Being Beyoncé’s older sister and not as individually successful as she would naturally bring on natural jealousy so, we are not going to take her to trial for that. However, we would like to take her to trial for being so beautiful and human. We know that it takes a long time to recover from abuse and we feel that this is a big step in doing so. Kelly, we’re rooting for you — endlessly. Listen to the track via this link or video below.

*And last but not least, because we are firm believers that art imitates life and great songwriting comes from real, personal experiences, we couldn’t help but refer to this song and video below. Please watch it and come to your own conclusions.
