It’s been said that “when one door closes, another one opens” and Kelly Rowland knows that all too well.  The Grammy-winning singer and budding actress opened up to The Huffington Post’s Marc Lamont Hill about parting ways with Universal Republic and taking her destiny into her own hands.

“I feel like right now, I just needed something new and I’ve earned the right to make my own choices and make my own decisions. I wish them well, they wish me well. No hard feelings, I just needed a fresh, new start,” Rowland told HuffPost Live when asked about her much talked about split with the label Wednesday.

The move couldn’t have come at a better time for Rowland. On Wednesday she announced that she is the new face of the bath and beauty product Caress. She shared the exciting news on her Instagram account with the following caption: “So excited to join @CaressSkin this year and to share my style tips as well as the latest news on their fine fragrance body washes! xo #CaressMe.”

Rowland also shared with THP that she is eager to get back on the silver screen and says she has been looking over scripts. For Rowland, timing is everything.

“The time is here and I’m ready,”  Rowland told Marc Lamont Hill of acting and then music. “There are different offers on the table. I just want to see what it feels like. I’m just in the studio on my own and just having a really good time just being creatively free.”

Congrats Kelly!
