The late Nat King Cole's daughter Natalie Cole is currently in the rotation of the media as she promotes her new album Natalie Cole En Espanol. In a recent interview that she did she not only went on to say Beyonce is the new Madonna but also that Kelly Rowland did a "great job" at her solo career whilst being in Beyonce's shadow.
“I think that it’s going to be interesting to see where Beyoncé’s career goes. Because now I would say, she is the new Madonna. Girls want to look like her; they want to dress like her…"Comparing Beyonce to Madonna is almost an understatement, to see what Beyonce has accomplished in her career in such magnitudes in this time, is incomparable! However, when it comes to global influence and the life changing events within the
music industry, Madonna takes the crown in paving the way for many artists who continue to push cultural boundaries and shock musical fans & artists alike.
Here's what Natalie Cole continued to say:
“I think that it’s going to be interesting to see where Beyoncé’s career goes. Because now I would say, she is the new Madonna. Girls want to look like her; they want to dress like her… I think that she could be a great influence. She’s a nice girl, definitely not a “diva” in the sense of what we like to use as that definition.”Is Natalie Cole right about this one?
“I like Kelly Rowland, I think that she’s great. It’s hard to come out of the group of Destiny’s Child and still kick some butt. It’s hard to be in the shadow of a Beyoncé. I think Kelly is a classy girl… I think she’s done a really great job.”
