Mathew Knowles, the father and former manager of Beyoncé, is speaking out about “colorism” within the music community — claiming that his daughter’s lighter skin tone contributed to her success, and that her Destiny’s Child bandmate Kelly Rowland suffered due to her darker complexion. Asked if Beyoncé would have had the same career if she had darker skin, Knowles said no — and pointed to Rowland as an example. “I think it would’ve affected her success,” Knowles said. “And I use Kelly Rowland as an example. She’s a great example. But you know, the great thing is, Kelly did exceptional outside of America, especially in Australia. Kelly sold over 4 million records. She just got off-script.”
