The beautiful Kelly Rowland donned her frayed hem jeans and sky high gold stilettos as she hit SXSW in her home state of Texas this weekend.

The "Ice" singer was in Austin to chat with BET President Stephen Hill about her upcoming reality competition show on the network, "Chasing Destiny."

After posing it up with Stephen before their chat, Kelly told the crowd that it's time for another girl group who's all about girl power and unity.  She said all that to say, she misses her own girl group.

“There’s been so many artists — and there’s nothing wrong with it — who want to be solo.  It’s what we’re used to right now. And like I said, there’s nothing wrong with it. But I think it’s time for another generation to see women coming together. I think it’s time for another generation to see camaraderie. I think it’s time for another generation to hear voices together. To hear the power of it, how exciting it is. How it’s a force on stage. That is something that is missed. Hell, I miss it.”

There’s been so many artists — and there’s nothing wrong with it — who want to be solo,” Kelly told BET President of Programing Stephen Hill (via Page Six). “It’s what we’re used to right now. And like I said, there’s nothing wrong with it. But I think it’s time for another generation to see women coming together. I think it’s time for another generation to see camaraderie. I think it’s time for another generation to hear voices together. To hear the power of it, how exciting it is. How it’s a force on stage. That is something that is missed. Hell, I miss it.”

Well, she gets to re-live a little of those days -- kinda -- with her new singing reality competition show "Chasing Destiny."

Also recently at SXSW, Kerry Washington took the stage to be interviewed, and she dished a bit about the intersection of her private life and technology.

The "Scandal" queen sat down with InStyle Editorial Director Ariel Foxman to chat about privacy, technology, and more.

We've all heard the rumors -- many of which just sound made up out of thin air -- concerning her marriage being on the rocks.  And seeing that NO ONE knew for months she had even gotten married,  we're not pressed to believe someone has the "in" on what's going on inside the marriage.

Still, her fans want answers.  but Kerry won't ever comment about her family.  Ever.

She says she refrains from reading comments about herself, and she simply doesn't engage (good or bad) in talk surrounding her marriage or baby girl Isabella.

What you do see her posting, though, is straight from her.  Unless it's signed "-KW Crew," which even those tweets she vets.

"For me, the key to everything on social media — for it to feel rewarding — is authenticity," Kerry said. "A lot of it comes from what's in my heart, what moves me."

She loves social media for the change it sparks.  Her fans called out Neutrogena when the brand named Kerry a spokesperson for its skincare line, yet doesn't even carry a makeup shade that she could wear.  they also called out InStyle magazine when they seemingly lightened the Confirmation star's skin tone on one of their recent covers.

Kerry told the audience:

"That kind of ability that social media has to give a voice to the voiceless is very important...I need you to keep using your voice in the world, because look at the change you've created."

Drake brought out his OVO label artists to perform at the Fader tent.  Then he took over the stage with Metro Boomin' to rock out for a ridiculous amount of fans.  Packed!

Energy and enemies...
