Destiny’s Child to reunite after Beyonce’s secret talks with Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams – The Sun

Posted on

THEY have been Independent Women since their last studio album in 2004 – but 15 years on, Destiny’s Child are ready to prove that the band is a Survivor of the music industry.

I can reveal that Beyonce has been secretly working on getting the iconic pop group back together, with Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams both on board.

She wants the reunion to include brand new music and a lucrative tour of the US and Europe next year.

And the timing is perfect, as it coincides with the 20th anniversary of Michelle joining Destiny’s Child and the group then becoming a chart-topping trio worldwide.

A music insider said: “Beyonce has been desperate to get the girls back together with her in the studio and she can’t think of a better time than 2020, when they will be marking two decades as one of the world’s biggest all-female groups.

“She saw the success of the Spice Girls tour and wants to replicate that — but far bigger and better.

Beyonce has been meeting with Kelly and Michelle and discussing what they can do.

“It’s early days but they want to record and put out new music and put it out alongside some of their biggest hits.

“Then they want to do a tour which will be short enough for them to fit it into their schedules, but big enough to make sure all their fans can make a date to see them.

“As well as going around the US they want to play dates in Europe, including the UK.

“They are one of the very few groups where love for them has only grown since they went on hiatus in 2006, so the demand is massive.”

Destiny’s Child had UK No1s with Independent Women and Survivor, and top five hits including Bootylicious, Emotion, Lose My Breath and Soldier.

Last year, Beyonce gave her fans a taste of what is to come by bringing Kelly and Michelle out on stage during her headline set at Coachella Festival in the US.

If that incredible performance is anything to go by, this reunion will be worth the wait.

Kylie a Pride-to-be?

THERE is just no stopping Kylie Minogue this summer.

After being one of my Glastonbury highlights in June, she ended her summer tour on Saturday by headlining Brighton Pride in the city’s Preston Park.

More than 250,000 people descended on the city for the celebrations, which included a parade, as well and performances from Clean Bandit and Fleur East.

Kylie – whose various outfits included this eye-catching Jean-Paul Gaultier dress, pictured above, as well as the creation below – appealed to the crowd by adding her LGBT anthem Your Disco Needs You to her setlist.

And she conducted a pretend wedding between two men during another of her hits, Especially For You.

Now that Kylie has found love again, with GQ creative director Paul Solomons, it will be her own wedding that she will have to think about next.

Haz’s dressing rehearsal

IF HARRY Styles wanted his music comeback to remain a secret, he should have made sure everyone kept a lid on it.

Producers on his new video tried to disguise the shoot by telling people it was for a mayonnaise advert, only for the penny to drop when fans spotted the floppy-haired singer.

He was filming in the Lombardo Toledano neighbourhood of Cancun, Mexico, and the shoot took over 20 buildings including people’s homes.

Trying to keep it schtum, several security guards were patrolling the area from midday on Saturday to early Sunday morning to ensure no one knew he was there.

But eagle-eyed fans, eager for a follow-up to his 2017 debut solo album, spotted him through windows and shared clips of the star on social media.

A source said: “The area was swarming with people. People in the neighbourhood knew filming couldn’t just be for a mayo advert, as there would never be so much security or such a large crew.

“His team had bought hundreds of bouquets of violet and purple flowers for the video. Harry spent most of time filming inside a yellow house.”

While the news Harry is preparing for a return to music is out, the song he was recording a video for thankfully didn’t leak.

Here’s hoping they’re better at keeping that under wraps.

James bags killer track

TWO albums down and James Bay has ­certainly made friends in high places.

The singer-songwriter, who released second record Electric Light last year, has written a song titled Easy Distraction with Brandon Flowers from The Killers.

Their collaboration is believed to have been the brainwave of songwriter Tommy King and producer Ariel Rechtshaid who have helped them both out with projects in the past.

But it is not yet known who will sing it or whether they will record it together.

The Killers headlined Glastonbury in June and are currently working on the follow-up to their 2017 album Wonderful Wonderful.

Getting this collaboration released would be enough to live up to that album title.

Cam’s body slam

CAMILA Cabello has lashed out at trolls for body shaming her online, insisting young people shouldn’t feel like they need to live up to unattainable beauty ­standards.

In an Instagram story, she wrote: “Of course there are bad pictures, of course there are bad angles, my body’s not made of f***ing rock, or all muscle, for that matter.

“The saddest part of young girls growing up in an ­airbrushed world is they’re seeking a perfection that’s not real.

“Everyone’s eyes get used to seeing airbrushed ­bodies and airbrushed skin and, suddenly, they think that’s the norm? It isn’t. It’s fake.

“Fake is becoming the new real. We have a completely unrealistic view of a woman’s body.

“Girls, cellulite is normal. Fat is normal. It’s beautiful and natural. I won’t buy into the bulls*** today.”

Time to check out Nic

NICOLE Scherzinger looked like she was keeping ­herself in check when she touched down in Sydney in this outfit.

The former Pussycat Dolls singer looked ready for action before take-off as she posted a photo of herself in LA.

But Nicole might have been feeling a bit sleepy by the time she arrived Down Under, as she has been flitting back and forth between the US and Australia to honour her filming commitments.

Nicole is a judge on Australia’s Got Talent and is also on the panel of US talent show The Masked Singer.

At least those air miles should give her a nice holiday when she eventually gets a week off.
