R&B star Kelly Rowland has stepped forward in defense of Hip-Hop, which has been besieged with broad criticism.

The former singer with Destiny's Child told RWD magazine, a UK-based publication, that rap music cannot be blamed for all of society's woes.

"I don't think Hip-Hop is to blame. Every music has it's own expression, it's own art. So it's how you choose to express yourself through your art. I support Hip-Hop until I die; at the end of the day, we're all individuals, we make our own decisions and we know right from wrong," the singer said.

Rowland also stated that Hip-Hop has been the scapegoat for myriad of offenses, but other genres haven't been held accountable in the same way.

"But I mean, we got to really look at what's happening here - what going unsaid. Look at Virginia Tech murders- there was supposed to be some situation with the killer listening to rock music - but rock music doesn't get blamed. Like, who are we pointing fingers at here, really? Lets read between the lines , you know?"

Cho Seung-Hui, the Virginia Tech murderer, was obsessed with a song called "Shine," a popular tune by 90's Christian band Collective Soul.

According to witnesses, Seung-Hui repeatedly played the song on his laptop in his dorm room. It was a chart-topping song in 1994.

Rowland hopes to top the charts when her highly anticipated album Ms. Kelly hits stores on June 26.

The single "Like This" features rapper Eve and is rising on the pop/R&B charts.
