Beyonce‘s skills in the art of shade are well-documented. You don’t rise to pop royalty without putting some people in their place, after all. And as we know from Kelly Rowland‘s “Dirty Laundry,” things between Bey and K-Row during their time in Destiny’s Child were at times contentious. Put those two things together, and well, you get this gem of a moment from an old DC interview.
Some hero of Vine dug up a vintage Destiny’s Child interview that shows just how early on the tension between the two singers showed itself (since LaTavia Roberson and LeToya Luckett are in the video, it must be pre-2000). Kelly can be seen introducing herself by saying, “I’m the second lead vocalist of the group,” at which point Beyonce gives her the side eye, coughs loudly and then transitions to a full-on WTF face.
