Kelly Rowland was forced to wait 10 years to have a boob job, after her mother scuppered her teenage plans to go under the knife.
The R+B beauty underwent breast enlargement surgery last year (07) to boost her modest A-cup to a B-cup, because she was fed up with her clothes not fitting her properly.
And she claims that although she was initially upset at her mum's refusal to let her have the procedure when she was 17, she's glad she took her advice and waited a further few years before getting her dream curves.
She tells WENN, "It was something I'd been thinking about since I was 17 years old, and my mum looked at me like I was crazy. "She said, 'Let your body finish developing', and I did, and I remember I thought about it when I got a little older, when I was around 20/21. I went in for a consultation and I was nervous, I was scared, so I thought about it a little more. Then a year later, I was still not comfortable, and finally I felt comfortable and I had the time to do it."
But Rowland admits she was shocked by the media coverage of her breast implants - because she didn't expect anyone to take notice of her more generous assets.
She adds, "It was something I didn't really think that people would notice, but I guess it's kinda noticeable!
"But then, the thing is, I felt that I couldn't lie, and I felt like I didn't have to lie, because now it's like going to get your teeth cleaned! It's just as simple as that, and I don't think that it's something that should be a feature or headline for the story; I don't think it's worth that, it's just a decision that I decided to make for myself, so I could fit my clothes better!"
