Nelly finally explains why Kelly Rowland was texting via Excel in Dilemma video

One of the greatest questions of our time may have been answered...

There's no denying that there's some very serious issues that need to be questioned in the world right now. But, let's park all of those for a few minutes, and marvel at the answer Nelly put forward to a question that troubled many of us back in 2002. 

Do you remember "Dilemma"? It was a hit song back in 2002, featuring former Destiny's Child member Kelly Rowland.  

The video sees the two singers flirt across a street, before dancing in front of a fancy car. Lovely. 

The song is all about a complicated relationship, but it has been pointed out that one reason for the complications may be that Rowland was attempting to send a text message in a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet. 

Nelly addressed this issue in a recent interview with Australia-based 'The Project'.

"That was the thing at the time! That was the new technology at the time," Nelly said of the excel text message. "It looks a little dated now."

Sure.
