Nas ex-wife Kelis has stepped forward to respond to the rapper’s use of her wedding dress on the cover of his upcoming album Life Is Good.
During a recent interview in the U.K., the “Milkshake” singer says her feelings are irrelevant.
“My feelings about it are not really relevant, but you know at the end of the day Nas is an artist,” Kelis said. “And for whatever it’s worth he’s one of the greatest, and especially for what it is he does.”
“So for me, I feel like especially for someone in hip-hop to kind of be genuine and honest, whatever the honesty is about, I think it’s awesome. So my feelings about it aren’t really necessarily valid, it’s just the fact that as an artist I can respect that he wears his feelings on his sleeve.”
In a recent interview Nas says when his marriage fell apart and Kelis moved out, the only thing she left behind was the wedding dress, and it has been haunting him over the years.
