A decade ago, Michelle Williams sang about being a "survivor" – but in fact, she's only recently found her way through the darkness.
"I've dealt with depression," the singer and actress, 32, tells the Associated Press. "I had to choose to get out of bed and do whatever I needed to do to be happy."
Williams first suffered from the mental health disorder as a teen, but managed to recover without the use of medication thanks to therapy, exercise and positive thinking.

Super Bowl XLVII is going to be "Jumpin' Jumpin'!"

Happy birthday Beyoncé!
Tuesday marks the Grammy Award winner's 31st birthday – and friends and family, including Gwyneth Paltrow; mom Tina Knowles; and her mother-in-law are sharing their warm wishes on the singer's website.
"God blessed me with one of the greatest gifts in my life on Sept. 4, 1981. Happy birthday," Beyoncé's mother writes.

Beyoncé just brought baby Blue Ivy Carter home from the hospital but motherhood, according to her former Destiny's Child bandmates, is as natural for the pop star as dancing in stilettos and a leotard.
"She's doing fabulous," Michelle Williams told PEOPLE on the red carpet at the taping of the 2012 BET Honors in Washington, D.C., on Saturday
"She was born to be a mother," Kelly Rowland added at the show, which will air Feb. 13. She's wonderful."
According to Williams, Beyoncé has what it takes to be a great mother to baby Blue. "She has such compassion for people and humanity, period," she said.

Rihanna did it. Gwyneth Paltrow and Russell Simmons did it.
So why didn't Michelle Williams, a member of Destiny's Child, Tweet congratulations to Beyoncé and Jay-Z on the arrival of their daughter, Blue Ivy Carter, over the weekend?
Because she'd rather do it in person.
"Let's get ONE thing straight....I do NOT have to say congrats to someone when they're NOT on twitter...ESPECIALLY when I talk or email them all the time....or when I'll be physically present as well," Williams wrote in response to a user (whose page is NSFW) who suggested she needed to send a message of congratulations on the social networking site.

Former Destiny's Child star Michelle Williams will see her name in lights next month when she high-kicks her way into the starring role of Roxie Hart in Chicago on Broadway.
Williams, 29, will play the wannabe star-turned-murderess for a limited run in the hit musical from Feb. 8 to March 28.
Williams will be taking over from Ashlee Simpson-Wentz, who debuted in the revival on Dec. 1. (A winner of six Tonys, this production of Chicago has been running on Broadway for 13 years.)
Williams first played Roxie last year in London's West End production.

Former Destiny's Child singer Michelle Williams says her dating life is "so unfortunate."
"I haven't had any luck this year," she told PEOPLE Thursday night at a benefit for the Jazz Foundation of America at the famed Apollo Theater in New York City. "It's been a couple years since I've been in a really serious relationship. Every now and then, you might think you're coming up on a winner, and then it doesn't work out."
But in truth, Williams hasn't had much time for the singles scene. She's been hard at work on her first solo R&B album Unexpected, which will hit stores in August. (Click here to hear her first single "We Break the Dawn.") Still, the 27-year-old singer finds herself second-guessing her focus.

For Michelle Williams Unexpected isn't just the name of her upcoming album – her new look is enough to make fans glance twice.
The singer recently debuted a trendy shoulder-length cut and side-swept bangs, a fresh update on the long locks of her gospel days. "I figured I have to do unexpected things," she said on Thursday at a private listening party for her new music.
On the topic of the edgy style – hot pink heels and skinny pants – she's sporting in the latest promo photos, she added, "It's very much how I am at home. You know, jeans and a tank top."

It's a hot new look – and new sound – for former Destiny's Child member Michelle Williams, and PEOPLE has your exclusive first listen to "We Break the Dawn," the synth-heavy first single from her album, Unexpected, due in August. (Click play below to hear it, then check out the singer's official Web site michellewilliamsonline.com for more info.)
It's a big new step for Williams, whose previous two albums focused more on her gospel roots – and it has the pop seal of approval from Mathew Knowles (aka Beyoncé's father), who's releasing the disc through Music World Entertainment/Columbia Records.
