The leggy beauty hit the top of the charts with DILEMMA, her collaboration with Nelly, and her debut solo album SIMPLY DEEP also impressed fans.
She says, "I cried before I went on stage alone for the first time because I was nervous. I feel more confident and comfortable when I'm performing next to the girls.
"Sometimes it's good to experience things by yourself rather than in a group. But I do occasionally get lonely. I'll be on a plane and I'll wish that either Beyonce or Michelle was sitting next to me so we could talk.
"I miss them a lot. But just because I'm solo doesn't mean I can't ring them up for a chat. I make a lot of phone calls."21/08/2003 17:11
