Last Saturday night, Destiny’s Child announced from the stage in Barcelona, Spain that their current tour will be their last. The multi-platinum trio — Beyoncé Knowles, Kelly Rowland, Michelle Williams, all of whom have already released solo albums — then issued a statement to MTV News on Sunday about the group’s future, or lack thereof:

“We have been working together as Destiny’s Child since we were 9, and touring together since we were 14,” the statement read. “After a lot of discussion and some deep soul searching, we realized that our current tour has given us the opportunity to leave Destiny’s Child on a high note, united in our friendship and filled with an overwhelming gratitude for our music, our fans, and each other. After all these wonderful years working together, we realized that now is the time to pursue our personal goals and solo efforts in earnest. … No matter what happens, we will always love each other as friends and sisters and will always support each other as artists. We want to thank all of our fans for their incredible love and support and hope to see you all again as we continue fulfilling our destinies.”

The title of their latest album, November ’04’s Destiny Fulfilled, might have been a clue

    I didn’t know they had gotten back together!

    They were doing fine with their solo careers. Well, except for that one…what’s her name. Ok so anyone Kelly and Beyonce were good!

    And wait until the reunion tour.

    If we promise to miss them (or at least pretend like we miss them) will they really go away? I know it is totally contradictory to make a profanity-laden post about how much I don’t give a fuck about DC but I really don’t give a fuck about DC and I really do hope they go the fuck away.

    I’ll second your sentiments DJR. I want their solo careers to go away too though. They bug.

    That’s kind of a given, really. They have a shelf life of another 20 minutes. Pop crap is a young man/woman’s game and they are not getting any younger.

    What a tragedy
