    Kelly Rowland Said She Doesn't Know What Microsoft Excel Is And Excel Replied In The Best Way

    "Imagine a life where you don’t have to know what Microsoft Excel is."

    Kelly Rowland went on The Real and was asked an important question by cohost Jeannie Mai.

    The question was about why Kelly used Microsoft Excel to text Nelly in the iconic "Dilemma" video. In the video, the text reads: "Where you at? Holla when you get there."

    Kelly looked like she was over the question before she even answered it.

    But she finally ended up addressing it.

    Microsoft Excel saw the interview and replied back with its own little spin to the song "Dilemma." They said, "No matter what you do, we're crazy over you."

    @MichaelBaggs @KELLYROWLAND No matter what you do, we're crazy over you.

    People said Kelly's response put things into perspective for them.

    Kelly Rowland really just put things into perspective...some people so rich they never had to pretend like they knew what they were doing in an Excel spreadsheet.

    And had them reevaluating how well they are doing in life.

    I use to think I was doing good in life until this. I just found out how broke I really am. 😂 I got some more work to do. https://t.co/qtfEY97KgP

    @MichaelBaggs Being too rich to know what Microsoft excel is because you’ve never had to work a common job a day in your life 😩

    @MichaelBaggs @livsette she just called us poor and overworked
