The singer has released a new confessional ballad titled "Dirty Laundry," in which she reveals her envy of her former Destiny's Child bandmate's solo success and also sings about a past abusive relationship. On the track, which Kelly posted on her SoundCloud web page, she laments, "When my sister on stage, killing it like a motherf***er, I was in a rage, feeling it like a motherf***er. Went our separate ways but I was happy she was killin' it. Bittersweet she was up, I was down. No lie, I feel good for her but what do I do now? Post-Survivor, she on fire. Who wanna hear my bulls**t."

Childhood pals Beyonce, 31, and Kelly, 32, formed their chart-topping girl group in 1992 as young girls and would go on to become worldwide stars together as the band found fame with hits such as "Say My Name" and "Bootylicious."

Kelly Rowland Has Bible Rider

Kelly RowlandKelly Rowland can never be without her Bible when she is on tour.

The "Down For Whatever" hitmaker doesn't have many backstage demands when she performs around the world, but she is always sure to have the religious text with her wherever she is.

"The only thing I asked for is Fiji Water. When I'm on tour the only thing I can't be without is my Bible."

The 30-year-old singer likes to keep fit both on tour and when she is at home in Los Angeles, and most of the time she manages to refrain from consuming calorific treats despite having the odd "cheat day."

"I like to feel good about myself and know what I'm putting in my body. It's not about putting on pound, it's about being healthy. Food isn't meant to make you feel lethargic, it's about nutrition, but you do have your cheat days. I love sugar and I love fried food but I try and leave it alone most of the time. I also love a nice glass of red wine."
