Who Is She? 6 Celebrity Sisters Often Forgotten

Have you ever thought about the siblings of some of your favorite singers and actors? If you answered "no," then you're not alone. Face it: When browsing the blogs, your favorite celebrities' sisters are not at the top of the noggin. VV decided it was time to give a sister spotlight to the often forgotten double-X siblings of some of the biggest celebrities in the biz currently. Whether you realize it or not, these ladies are doing and have done their thing too. Take a look at the sisters who, although may not ever be as successful as their siblings, still deserve the spotlight.

Solange Knowles
Being the sister of one of the world's best entertainers isn't easy. With all the commotion that's always surrounded her Beyoncé, Solange has often been compared to her big sis or forgotten. Over the years, we've watched Solange come into her own identity and style which let the world know she is her own person. The Vixen has gained her own fan base as a DJ and established herself as one of the faces of Rimmel London. She's doing her thing and don't you forget it!

Lynda Lopez
So many people are not even aware that the former news anchor is the sister of the sizzling hot performer Jennifer Lopez. The spotlight often skips over Lynda because of her sister's high profile lifestyle, but don't be fooled. Lynda was a successful VH1 VJ in the 90s, and if you remember correctly, she was an anchor for Good Day New York and Fox 5 Live back in 2007. Lynda made her own lane, and you can still catch her in the anchor rotation at WCBS Newsradio 880.
Jamie Lynn Spears
Even though she is pop sensation Britney Spears' little sister, the 20-year-old has generated a lot of buzz of her own in the past five years. Jamie Lynn is known for her role on the Nickelodeon show Zoey 101 and getting pregnant when she was 16. Although going through a lot before turning 20, she is now focused on being a good mom and her music career. Recently she rocked a crowd with her country tunes at The Rutledge in Tennessee.
Kenashia (Shia) Douglas
Having the honor of being the sister to former record label Murder Inc R&B princess Ashanti must be a blessing. Shia has become some what of a socialite herself , photographed at some of the hottest parties. Often times people forget her name, but if she continues to pop up at events like she has been doing, we think eventually one day she'll make a name for herself.
Kendall and Kylie Jenner
These girls have lived in the shadows of their big Kardashian half-sisters most of their lives. Even on the reality show, their appearances were kept to a minimum. Although their last names are Jenner, these girls are about to create and empire themselves. They have their own website, a jewelry line in the works and maybe even their own reality television show coming out. We say they didn't have the spotlight when they were young, but they are definitely going to take it as they get older.
Natali Germanotta
When the world found out that Lady Gaga had a sister, complete pandemonium erupted. Being the sister to one of the most unique artists to hit the industry in years is a tough act to follow. However, Natali is determined to create her own legacy completely different from her sister. The 19-year-old is currently studying design at Parsons The New School for Design and plans to be a designer. We will get our first glimpse on her visions when the clothing line she and her sister collaborated on comes out.

Beyoncé comes in at No. 3 on the list with an earning of $60 million as she made most of her money through her historical Coachella performance, the joint album with husband JAY-Z, Everything is Love, and the Carters' On The Run II Tour in support of its release.

Kelly Rowland Hops In Her Bag With New Single "Kelly"

Kelly Rowland has it all and isn't afraid to brag about it on her new single, "Kelly."

Released Thursday (Nov. 22), the singer goes the clubby, confident route while rightfully dropping her attributes like her relationship with God, smoldering looks (a.k.a the drip) among other things. With "Kelly" being the first single since her 2013's Talk a Good Game, the singer comes out swinging, reminding everyone of her power in the game.

The mother of one has promised that her new tunes will be edgier and most honest than her past work that included vulnerable tracks like "Dirty Laundry" and massive hits like "Motivation" and "Commander." Speaking with Vogue over the summer, Ms. Kelly disclosed a few details behind the album.

“It’s about love, loss, and gain and whether it’s professional or with family or whatever, it’s just honest," she said. "I had no choice but to be honest and authentic with this record: it’s about friendship and marriage.”

She also explained a drop in confidence caused her hiatus. “I was thinking about pulling back from recording, but I couldn’t help myself: I still wanted to record. I still felt like I was missing something. The third year just came and left so fast. The fourth year I said: ‘I have to get to work’ and now I’m ready to release some music! I felt like I wasted so much time, and it was my husband who actually called me out on it. He said: ‘Babe, as great as those records were, I think you were nervous, you got gun-shy’, and when he said that it was like boom, a gong went off.”

Glad to have you back, Ms. Kelly. Listen to the eponymous record up top.
