Before she heads off the the Grammys this weekend, Kelly Rowland‘s doing a little promotion for some of her many projects. The r&b/pop singer appeared on late night talk show, Chelsea Lately, to talk about everything from working with rapper Lil Wayne on her Grammy-nominated single, Motivation, to her new workout DVD, Sexy Abs.
“I had so much fun and my trainer, Jeanette Jenkins, taught me so much,” Kelly said of working on the DVD project. “Of course abs but she taught me like this 80/20 rule.” Rowland says she eats healthy 80% of the time but then she gets to enjoy “sweets, cakes, cookies, pies…” and all of the sugary products she loves 20% of the time to give herself balance. The 80% healthy living wasn’t a piece of cake for Kelly though. She says cutting out her beloved sweets for some time made her “a crazy person and mean as hell.”
Kelly Rowland’s single “Motivation” is nominated for ‘best rap/sung collaboration’ at the 54th annual Grammy Awards. She faces competition from her former Destiny’s Child band mate and best friend, Beyonce, as well as Rihanna, Drake, Kanye West and more in the category. Winners will be announced when the big show takes place February 12.
