Kelly Rowland let it all out during her latest performance of Dirty Laundry in Washington, D.C where she broke down into tears after she let out a soulful series of rifts.
When Rowland released the track Dirty Laundry and opened up about being jealous of Beyonce and struggling with an abusive relationship, fans, friends and others in the music industry all felt her pain and were able to relate to the heartfelt track.
She earned the respect of many as she put all her true feelings on the song. And as she kicked off her summer tour with The Dream in D.C., it was obvious just how much dirty laundry she was really airing out.
Rowland didn’t actually pen the song herself, The Dream did most of the writing, but it is certainly a reflection of Rowland’s experiences and struggles. It is enough to make anyone break down into tears while performing such a personal track in public.
“When you’re soaked in tears for years, it never airs out / When you make pain look this good, it never wears out,” she sings during the chorus giving her fans a glimpse at her painful past.
During the second verse of the song she opens up about trying to stay strong in the media spotlight and not wanting people to see how badly she was really hurting.
The 32-year-old “Kisses Down Low” singer managed to make it through most of the performance, holding back her tears as the crowd sang along with her. It wasn’t until the end of the song that Rowland had a tear-filled break down.
It was an honest performance that we usually see in today’s musical arenas.
