Kelly Rowland is covering the fall issue of Runway magazine, and in the issue she opens up about her struggles with being dark-skinned and dealing with peer pressure.
“There’s so much peer pressure growing up, I had an identity crisis. I went to a predominantly white school and I was the only black girl. I can remember thinking: ‘I don’t want to be as dark as I am – I want to be a little fairer.’ I didn’t want to be me…Tina (Beyonce’s mother) sat me in front of the mirror and said: ‘Girl, look at how pretty you are.’ She made me feel comfortable in my own skin.”
