Kelly Rowland looks absolutely stunning on the front page of the October issue of SHAPE magazine. During her interview with the fitness publication, The X-Factor judge had this to say about her “problem” area.

“As I’m getting older, the Rowland family trait of having bigger bottoms is taking its toll on my hips and butt. The other day, [my trainer] had me doing squats that were so hard I wanted to kill her. But my behind is getting higher and tighter. Exercise really does change your body.”

Something tells me a few more guys will be reading this issue than usual. The October issue of SHAPE hits newsstands today.

See behind the scenes footage from the shoot below.
