Kelly Rowland isn't too sure she wants to watch Framing Britney Spears! The former Destiny's Child singer appeared as a guest on Andy Cohen's Watch What Happens Live on Thursday, where she shared her thoughts on the controversial new documentary.
Rowland is "having a hard time" with new Britney documentary
Rowland's comments came during the "After Show" segment of Watch What Happens Live, where she and reality star Garcelle Beauvais continued to take on questions from the show's host and fans. When she was asked about Framing Britney Spears though, she had a surprising answer!
"I haven't seen the Britney doc," Rowland confessed. "I'm having a hard time wanting to watch it." Since the February release of the FX documentary, which puts the media's treatment of Spears' life over the years under a microscope, many celebrities have voiced their support for her.
Rowland talks about being respectful of artists' stories
Rowland went on to suggest that Spears not being involved in the unauthorized documentary— and not addressing the project herself— has contributed to her hesitancy. "I really respect when artists say, 'This is a documentary, it's OK to watch this,'" she shared.
She went on to talk about the integrity of artists being able to control their own narratives. "I respect their space and their privacy and their point of view," she said, explaining that she prefers to see artists' stories come "from their brains, their hearts, their mouths" rather than those of other people.
And while Rowland herself might not want to sit down and watch Framing Britney Spears, she did briefly touch on one aspect of the documentary! "From her perspective, [the negativity came from] journalists and all these people in the media," she said, regarding the way Spears was treated. "But now social media is people. So people need to just be kind. Period."
