With five Grammy nominations and their single "Independent Women Part I" at the top of the charts for weeks, Destiny's Child seems to be getting over the tumult of the past few years.
Once a foursome, the R&B group is now a trio. Members have come and gone and accused each other of breach of contract.
"The changes have been hard," Beyonce Knowles, 19, says in the March issue of Teen People. "For a month I stayed in bed. I was sad, hurt, on the verge of a nervous breakdown. . . . But I realized it's dumb to dwell on the negativity."
The talk is of reconciliation all around.
"I'm learning from these girls," said Michelle Williams, 20, who joined Knowles and 19-year-old Kelly Rowland after LeToya Luckett and LaTavia Roberson left the group in 1999. "We help each other to be better and to dig out the good things hidden in us."
