Kelly Rowland’s boat lost at sea, Beyonce’s hair caught in fan

And Finally Artist News

Destiny's Child

Oh dear, Destiny’s Child aren’t having all that nice a time of it lately, the R&B trio’s Kelly Rowland and Beyonce Knowles having faced (100% non-related) mini-disasters of a nautical/follicle variety, all in the past week.

First was Rowland, who had to be saved by the coastguard after her private boat got lost at sea. Apparently she was on a whale-watching trip off Provincetown, Massachusetts, and drove into unchartered waters after the boat’s captain lost sight of the larger ship he was following.

Kelly and friends, who were towed back to shore after twelve hours adrift, were said to be “great”, if slightly “shook up”. You’ve think she would have learned her lesson after previous bad encounters with sealife. Happily, Rowland was saved in time to share her new solo vid, ‘Dirty Laundry’, which is watchable here.

In cleaner, drier and marginally less dramatic Destiny’s Child news, Beyonce snagged her weave in a fan (that’s machine, not man) whilst on stage in Canada on Monday night. Not that she really cared, or stopped singing ‘Halo’, because she is amazing.
