Estelle Covers BLEU Magazine

Published: Wednesday 23rd Apr 2008 by Sam

Estelle Covers BLEU Magazine‘American Boy’ singer Estelle features in the Spring 2008 issue of BLEU Magazine; the UK sensation is the first artist to receive a double cover in the magazine’s history.

Speaking exclusively to BLEU Magazine’s contributing writer Lenox Magee, Estelle dishes on how the UK does not know how to promote black artists. She also addresses the Lauryn Hill comparisons:

“I think they compare me to her (Lauryn Hill) because I’m dark-skinned and I sing and rap. But, if they’re saying the music is just as great, then compare me all day because I’ll be really happy about that.”

The issue hits newsstands across the US on April 29th, as does Estelle’s great new album ‘Shine’.

    something about her rubs me the wrong way… she is always pulling the race card in some way.

    Silly people, tut! people can compare all they like but Estelle is about as Lauryn Hill as Leona Lewis is Mariah! Lauryn may have only released one album but boy is it a classic ten plus years on.

    As for the pictures… well, urrrm, dunno really… not really feeling the clothes.
