Kelly Rowland called “Ralphie Tonight” on behalf of Claritin to chat about her allergies; she even revealed that all three members of Destiny’s Child suffer from allergies.

Speaking of which, Rowland shed some light on the trio’s reunion at the 2015 Stellar Gospel Music Awards, and if there is a set time for the ladies to join together again.

After having her first child, son Titan, four months ago – Rowland will now look to complete her fifth studio LP. She tells “Ralphie Tonight” that she is still undecided as to whether she will release it independently or not.

It certainly isn’t easy spending your career in the limelight, especially in the day of instant reaction on Twitter and instant meme-ification on Tumblr. “The X-Factor” judge Kelly Rowland is well-aware of this.

“Sometimes it’s really hard for me to hide my facial expressions because… it’s hard,” Rowland tried to explain during a chat at the FOX TV Radio Junket for the Television Critic Association Awards. “Sometimes people get up there and you’re like, ‘Oh, why?’”

A Rowland reaction to a male attempting to cover Britney Spears’ “(Hit Me) Baby One More Time” already has the web buzzing. The Destiny Child singer cautioned that she’s already given “a lot of those looks,” but that she is also impressed with a lot of the artists that have auditioned thus far.

“America has some serious talent and people who are really ready and willing to work hard,” Rowland said. “They’re chasing a dream. I know what it’s like to chase a dream.”

Rowland’s fellow judges Demi Lovato, Paulina Rubio, and Simon Cowell also know what it takes to make a dream a reality.

“We’re three women who obviously love music and enjoy being on the panel, and we happen to get along,” Rowland said of her relationship with Lovato and Rubio. “Simon made a good decision. I don’t know if he knew that we’d get along or not, but it feels good that we do.”

Rowland also doesn’t know if Cowell realized he would be essentially pitting himself against three women, but he did.

“We totally team up on Simon,” Rowland admitted. “He gets a little challenge from us.”

Given Cowell’s recent trials and tribulations in the headlines, surely it’s a challenge that he doesn’t mind. The two night season premiere of “The X-Factor” airs this September on FOX.

David Guetta may not be releasing One Love in the States until August 25, but that doesn’t mean the French DJ/Producer isn’t already thinking of future singles and possible re-releases of the LP.

“Okay, I give you exclusive,” Guetta said at the end of our interview last week. He called in to The Ralphie Radio Show from a French hotel. Towards the latter part of the conversation, Guetta revealed the existence of a track that will be the third single off of One Love. The song is “Gettin’ Over” – and the original features Chris Willis. The remix, to come later with a holiday re-release of the LP, will also include Fergie and Will.I.Am. of The Black Eyed Peas.

“The Peas were like, ‘Oh, you gotta give (‘Gettin’ Over’) to us.’ I’m like, ‘No, I need that one for my album,’” Guetta explained. “I saw Will again, and he was like, ‘Man this song is too good.’ So it’s Fergie, Chris Willis, and Will.I.Am., and this song is a bomb man!”

It wouldn’t be the first “bomb” created by Guetta and BEP – the man behind, “Love Is Gone” produced The Peas global smash, “I Gotta Feeling.”

“(BEP and I) first made two songs for The Black Eyed Peas album,” said Guetta, who also claims production credits on the track, “Rock That Body” from The E.N.D. “We had so much that we just kept making music even though the album was finished. I’m still making music with Will for nothing, just for fun.”

Part 2: “Sexy Chick” f. Akon, One Love, Exclusive News Re: New BEP Track


Guetta parlayed his relationships with BEP and Kelly Rowland (vocals on “When Love Takes Over”) in to more cameos from American A-listers on his forthcoming LP. The Peas and Rowland told their friends about the producer, and then artists like Akon, Ne-Yo, and Kid Cudi approached Guetta for tracks. The Frenchman would always respond with a “yes”, on the condition that they appeared on his album as well. The result is a star-studded cast for One Love. Akon is featured on the LP’s second single, “Sexy B*tch.”

“What happened with Akon was not planned,” revealed Guetta. “We just met at a festival, and decided to make music on that night.”

Both were leaving from the show for their respective home countries in the morning. Guetta says that instead of going out to have a drink, they entered the studio, and left with a song that is already taking the global charts by storm. The record will also appear on Akon’s forthcoming album.

Much has come as a delightful surprise to Guetta during this summer-long run of chart-topping hits, but what didn’t was the changing of “Sexy B*tch” in the U.S. and U.K. to “Sexy Chick.” He even learned something thanks to Akon in the process.

“We had a discussion with the record company… and in the U.K., (bitch) is the most offensive word,” said Guetta. “Whereas in America… that’s what I’ve been told by Akon, like, a girl that takes care of herself and knows what she wants.”

Regardless, it’s what the people want: the song already reached the Top 10 in nine different countries, and is on the cusp of Top 20 in the U.S. Maybe taking language cues from Akon isn’t so bad afterall.
