In the midst of Essence magazine announcing Vanessa K. Bush as their new Editor-In-Chief, multi-platinum Grammy Award winning singer Kelly Rowland covers the publication’s September issue.

The “Dirty Laundry” singer, X-Factor judge and Jaguar spokewoman gets glam up in a black dress layered under a fur vest for the Fall 2013 issue. Inside, she talks about her sister Beyoncé & the life she wants for herself, finding her strength through boxing, and why she is afraid to share her feelings. Below are some highlights: 

On Beyoncé and the life she wants for herself:

“For a long time I wasn’t happy, but that had nothing to do with Beyoncé. That had to do with me trying to get my life in order and make better decisions for myself. I’m seeing all these wonderful things happen for her and I am happy for her. But I want a path. I want things to pop off for me, too. Not on her level but whatever my level is supposed to be.”

On finding her strength through boxing:

“I see the beauty in boxing…It teaches me strength, physically but mostly mentally. I had to learn my strength, because for so long I could have been tougher than I was.”

On why she was afraid to share her feelings:

“’….cause I didn’t want anybody to judge me. But now I don’t care, Judge me if you want to. And as a matter of fact, it won’t even count, ‘cause the only person who can judge is God.”
