If you’ve paid attention to your social media feeds in the last 24 hours, you’ve probably seen an old clip of Destiny’s Child making rounds and it has everyone talking.

I spotted the video on my Facebook feed, and it clearly shows Destiny’s Child in their early stages, before the group became one of the best-selling girl groups of all time. So this had to be before the media training kicked in.

In the short clip which was posted to Vine hours ago, the girls are apparently introducing themselves, but Kelly apparently causes her group members to seemingly throw some shade her way after she introduces herself as the “second lead vocalist.”

LaTavia Roberson and LeToya Luckett appear to shoot her some interesting looks, while Beyonce coughs and seemingly gives her the side eye.

It’s harmless and a little funny to us, but some think it’s some sort of proof that Beyonce is a monster.

All the girls insist it’s all love now these days, but that didn’t stop Twitter from going in. Anyway, check it out below.


  1. I find it hypocritical that all the other blogs were only calling out Beyonce as if LeToya and LaTavia didn’t throw Kelly the same shade. Like someone else on here said, people become real hypocritical when it comes to Beyonce. I guess that’s to be expected when a person becomes so successful. Anyway, they were all teenagers at the time. It’s not that deep.

  2. This actually made me like Bey more. She’s human here and not trying to be perfect in this instance. What woman hasn’t given someone the side eye for saying something they thought was sideways? Let’s just keep it real. People expect Beyonce to be some kind of perfect person but in the next breath they get mad that her fans call her a queen. Her haters put her on the same pedestal her stans do. The irony of it all.

  3. Off topic, just from this Vine alone it’s clear that Bey was always meant to be the big star she is. While Kelly was talking I couldn’t help but pay more attention to Bey.

  4. LeToya looked pissed right here. She actually looked more annoyed than anyone else. I wondered what went down BEFORE this video. LOL.

  5. It’s amazing that this old video comes out now. Someone is trying to hurt Bey but she still sold over 300,000 copies of her album last week. 1.3 million and counting. Stay mad haters and keep trying to ruin this woman. It won’t work.

  6. I seen this on twitter and I really don’t see the big deal they were teenagers this is so old so what they shaded each other. Isn’t that what teenage girls do shade and then turnaround and tell each other secrets.

  7. Kelly sung a little but the group was always about Beyonce. And to be fair, she does work harder than everyone else in the group so her success was deserved. I still love Kelly though.

  8. They were teens. This is what teens do. But those that hate Bey will make more out of it than necessary. Haters.

  9. I agree UB, I don’t think it’s that serious either! People are so thirsty for Bey’s fall they are digging up old stuff!

  10. Looks like harmless teenage shade to me. And all of them are cool now, so I don’t see the big deal. Some people just refuse to move on from the whole Destiny’s Child thing.

  11. People… Do you all know that you can peace together different segments of an interview to give off the effect you want. It is obvious that Kelly is no longer talking when Beyonc√© does that motion. People are calculating and play on peoples sense to judge…Fake sequencing…Carry along. LOL
