Despite a triumphant reunion with her Destiny's Child gal-pals, the trio's comeback performance was marred by detractors like Keyshia Cole, who blasted Williams for supposedly being the weak link at last Sunday's halftime show.
But ever the trouper, the 32-year-old songstress isn't letting her critics pull her down.
"We were all smiling, I was laughing with my girls," Williams tells Billboard about their gig. "I don't care what anybody else says. I don't let it get me down. It was a beautiful thing."
Until now, Williams had largely remained silent about the blowback she's gotten, even swatting down a fake tweet that tried to rustle up a feud with Cole.
Instead, the chanteuse prefers to focus on the positive. "When three good girlfriends are together, you're free and you don't care who's around," she says. "You're just trying to catch up and be goofy. I had a blast."
Sure looks like it: Beyoncé recently posted a pic of the trio goofing around following their reunion.
If Williams—who's currently on tour with the musical Fela!—had her way, she says she'd "do it again in a minute," before teasing, "Who knows?"
C'mon, ladies: Somebody's gotta keep things bootylicious around here!
