The singer has been sporting a new bob of late, and now she has revealed the story behind the haircut.

She tells, "I wanted to experiment and colour my own hair. That was one of the biggest mistakes of my life. I thought it was semi-permanent colour. It was permanent colour!

"I was packing up to leave for a red eye flight, and I thought that I’d have enough time to rinse it out 'cause I’ve kept semi-permanent colour on long before.

25 Best R&B Albums Of 2013

December 27th, 2013 6:30pm EST
It truly saddens me to see R&B, a personal favorite style of music, in a state of uncertainty.  2013 found the numbers of R&B down considerably, a trend that is consistent year in and year out. Save for a select few commercial bright spots (led by an unexpected Beyoncé album), R&B only dented the charts. Even so, finding 25 albums with some significance wasn’t difficult to do.  Sure, some of the lowest ranked albums have their flaws, but each has some reason for being selected.  Enjoy!

In a world where R&B and soul music have cooled off consid...

'Black Panties' Review: R. Kelly Sounds Exceptional Vocally But Goes Overboard Sensually

December 10th, 2013 11:30am EST
R.Kelly Black Panties
R. Kelly sounds exceptionally vocally on Black Panties, goes overboard sensually.

R. Kelly has a compelling argument for the title of the “King of R&B”, easily.  For years and years, the sensually driven R&B singer has captivated audiences with his R- (and sometimes X-) rated brand of contemporary soul, ultimately epitomizing the urban sound.  Like many of his contemporaries and other artists he’s influenced, Kelly’s sales have taken a tumble from their glory days – the plight that is R&B music these days. Kelly’s previous two albums consisted of brand new material, but found the singer r...

Beyonce once confronted a school bully who was targeting her younger sister.
The 'Singles Ladies' hitmaker - who first found fame with R&B group Destiny's Child - defended sibling Solange Knowles, 27, after her sibling asked her to go into school to speak to a boy who had been making her life tough.
Pop star Solange told radio station Hot 97 host Angie Martinez: "When I was in seventh or eighth grade I used the [fame] card. Because there was this one kid who was so obnoxious, he was constantly kinda bullying.

Kelly Rowland
Kelly Rowland doesn't think Simon Cowell should name his baby Simon.
The 54-year-old music mogul recently hinted he may name his baby with girlfriend Lauren Silverman after himself, but his 'X Factor' co-star believes Simon should allow the tot to develop his or her own identity.

Simon Cowell
Simon Cowell could be set to leave 'The X Factor'.
The 54-year-old media mogul is a judge on the singing contest - which is his brainchild - however he could be planning to leave the show since it is pulling in fewer viewers than in previous years - with the live show on Tuesday night (29.10.13) attracting only 4.8 million viewers.
The drop in numbers could force bosses to lower the budget on the series, meaning Simon will walk away and back onto the judging panel of the UK version of the talent show.
An insider told The Sun newspaper: "People have talked as if it is all over for 'The X Fa...

'The X Factor': Meet The Final 40

'The X-Factor' Meet the Final 40
In a season that's trying its best not to make 'The X Factor' look like 'The X Factor', last night's episode just completely dismantled the whole show into something completely unrecognizable.

Firstly, there's not going to be any boot camp this year. No battles, no judges' homes. Nothing. It's just a big skip straight to performing back in the arenas. Something called the Four Chair Challenge - a blatant rip-off of 'The Voice' (it appears) as it seems this show is sharply focused on getting down to the live show roster as quickly as it can.

Or drag it out with its Four Chair Challenge for...

September 12th, 2013 8:33am EDT
The X Factor Season 3 Premiere
Year three of the 'The X Factor' and we start it off just the same as we have in each of its first two iterations: Like a brand new show.

This year, we get two new judges (Paulina Rubio and Kelly Rowland) and, for the first time, all four on the panel finally seem to be sentient human beings capable of expressing thoughts out loud. No more Britney reiterating what she (allegedly) hears through an IFB (interruptible foldback earpiece), no more Nicole Scherzinger espousing praise on anybody capable of producing a sound. Now we may finally get another couple Demis and Simons up there for a co...
