Kelly Rowland has opened up about being overshadowed by Beyoncé during their hey days as group members of Destiny's Child. The US songstress recently recalled her challenging experience during the Destiny's Child days, adding that she "tortured" herself.

This is after The Voice Australia contestant Chris Sebastian revealed his fears about being overshadowed by his older brother, pop star Guy Sebastian.

Kelly, 39, expressed that being pitted against her longtime friend and bandmate caused her to constantly re-examine her own choices.

According to CNN, Kelly told Sebastian:

"I know this feeling. Can you imagine what it's like being in a group with Beyoncé? I would just torture myself in my head."

The coach of The Voice also recalled often telling herself that she couldn't wear certain dresses because "they're going to say it's like B."

"Or, 'I can't have a song like that because it sounds too much like B. They're gonna compare anyway."

The Put It Down hitmaker has said that Jay-Z is very protective over and insecure about Beyoncé. Bun B has alleged that the hip-hop mogul kicked him and Slim Thug out of the video shoot for the song Check On It for no reason other than Beyoncé's revealing wardrobe.

Bun suggested that the scene that got them kicked out of the shoot was when Beyoncé and several other girls were all dancing seductively on the chair.

"So they immediately come over to us and they kick all of us out to our dressing rooms and we’re told to stay there until we have to shoot."
