Kelly Rowland Covers Marie Claire UK

On being a part of the controversial judge panel on “The X Factor”:

“What I like is that it’s very organic. What you see is what you get. Nothing is fake. We’ll agree, we’ll disagree and sometimes we have to agree to disagree.”

On moving with her mom from Atlanta to Houston and away from her dad:

“I was just the kind of kid who could get on with anyone – I talked a lot. I still talk a lot. I remeber I’d watch my mom do her job as a nanny and see her bosses with their kids and say, ‘OK, this is a nice life. I want that.’ Seeing how someone else was living put a drive in me.”

On whether she plans to reunite with her dad after 22 years:

“I do plan on seeing him over the holidays. I’m nervous as hell. I don’t want to think about it. We’ll see what happens.”

On whether Beyonce’s pregnancy has made her broody:

“No. I will babysit and change a diaper or two, and then give it back. I do want kids, but every time I think about a little person growing inside of me and getting bigger and bigger and then having to come out…. a watermelon coming out of something the size of a lemon is insane to me.”
