(VIDEO) Say What?! Kelly Rowland Reveals She Didn’t Always Love Her Darkskin

Chocolate-skinned beauty Kelly Rowland says that she wasn’t always comfortable in her own skin.

The 32-year-old singer talked with Cherise Nicole from CNikky.com at last month’s 2013 Essence Black Women In Hollywood luncheon, and shares that it was Beyonce‘s mother, Tina Knowles, who told her she needed to embrace being chocolate.

“You know what I had great women in my life to help me overcome that,” she says in the video. “I remember I went through a period where I didn’t embrace my chocolatiness … just being a chocolate, lovely brown skin girl and being proud of that. I remember being out in the sun and I was trying to shield myself from the sun and (Tina Knowles) said, ‘Are you crazy?!’ She said ‘You are absolutely gorgeous’ and she just told me how beautiful I was, and how rare chocolate is, and how gorgeous the skin is — all of this stuff. A light went off.”
