Kelis Gets Real About Being Famous


Former pop star Kelis says she doesn't need fame to feel validated...

Kelis tells Essence Magazine
“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.”
Kelis' interview with Essence on newsstands now.

I dont need fame but the money some famous people have would be nice.

Lol Chile, you're barely famous now. Muthafuckas can't name 5 songs you made off the top of their heads. Be gone!

Basically, Kelis didn't know how good she had it when music was real as a fair share and not monopolized into marketing schemes. So now since the award shows and the industry sucks she can leave it. GOTCHA!

Liar, if she really felt that way why is she doing interviews and discussing her previous marriage. Instead of just stfu and living her normal nonfamous life

I believe her for years this girl has been minding her own business , she has went on with her life got married and had another kid . even when she was in the industry she didn't try to be on scene like that she stayed in her lane.It is some miserable people in this world who will find fault no matter what a person does , so she is right the only one who can truely validate u is yourself , if you have knowledge of self thats all that matter . Tupac said years ago he would take the money and fuck the fame ...All these people are actors on a stage some people get tired of playing the game .Love and Light

@ 12:02 I can because I'm a huge fan of her Music

HOWEVER

@ 1:46 I totally agree
Her actions don't match her words

Plus if it's REALLY not about fame then why didn't she just go the independent route & keep making music ???

Clearly she misses the game & the money
That's why she talks about her Ex- husband who is rich more than her current husband who is not

Despite having kids with both

#Girl Bye

I only know one Kelis song and it's not even a classic jam. No one plays it on the radio anymore.

She sounds ungrateful, your fans made you and now you insulting them, she needs to humble herself, why ever did she enter entertainment business and even got married to it, chile boo

Her hair stays ICE COLD. She's never come off thirsty. With her looks, she could have been a bigger star. Let's face it, you don't have to have talent anymore. So I believe her.

Nas invested very well, and one of the early tech company he invested in was bought for 1billion.

Nas also writes his rhymes.. Nas ain’t starving and never has.



.This Bitch was getting $40,000 a month when they divorced.


Nothing matches up with this chick.

She steady saying one thing doing another

Top 5 songs (even if they weren't popular):

Caught Out There
Suspended
Glow
Milkshake
Bossy

With the exception of the latter two, only one radio station played her music when they had Neo-Soul hour.

^ That's to say that other songs were probably in heavy rotation in other parts of the world. While the music business is dirty, I do believe that her efforts to go indie failed in the U.S. failed because I only hear about her being popular in the UK.

She is a noted stone cold hard to deal with bitch. If she was anything other a man that hardly speaks wouldn't write a public essay about her needing to stop the bs. She may not come off super thirsty for fame but she missing Nas coins them shits are long. She misses it a lil ironic both his kids mother in the news this week.
