Kelis Covers Essence’s Global Beauty Issue / Says “Being Famous Never Validated Me”

Published: Wednesday 19th Sep 2018 by Sam

Cop a gander of Kelis, who covers the October issue of Essence Magazine. 

The ‘Milkshake’ singer is no stranger to shaking up the status quo with her quirky music and aesthetic. Both of which have made her a household name in Pop cultural circles.

And though she’s endured in the industry for almost two decades, she says that her priority these days is “self-care” and it’s a message she says she reiterates to all who’ll listen.

Her words below…

“Anyone who knows me knows I can take fame or leave it. I can walk away from all of this and never look back. Being famous has never validated me—ever. I’ve never cared if people liked me or didn’t like me. Either way, I’m cool.”

She elaborates more on being centered and happy in the issue, which hits newsstand on September 21st. 

Ahead of then, peep another snap below…

Great to see Kelis back in the media mix beyond the Nas drama.

  1. Luh U Kelis but NAS sounds TRUTH September 19, 2018

    I guess self-care = shaking down & mentally abusing your divorced baby father every few years for income you can make on your own with 1 album

      Ey ‘1 album’?
      Pretty sure she has a good discography and a happy healthy life now no?

    “And though she’s endured in the industry for almost two decades”

    She’s cool and all but this is a stretch.
