Kelis Share Her Secrets On Fame “Being Famous Never Validated Me!”

Since the moment she arrived on the scene, Kelis has done things her own way. A beauty chameleon and genre-bending musical talent, the singer has always been in a league of her own.

For October, Kelis graces the cover of ESSENCE’s Global Beauty Issue where she gets candid about taking a break from the spotlight and working at her own pace.

“One of the biggest things I reiterate is self-care,” the singer told ESSENCE.

Fame can be a tricky beast for celebrities, especially in an age where social media is king and access to their private lives can result in less than pleasing tabloid stories. It’s no wonder, then, that stars like Kelis choose to keep certain parts of their lives private.

“Anyone who knows me knows I can take fame or leave it,” Kelis said. “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.”

Still, part of Kelis’ self-care was taking a much needed break from the music industry’s glaring spotlight. The singer said that she knew exactly what she needed to do in order to maintain her peace.

The 39-year-old mother of two knew that in order to be truly happy, she had to grow into the powerhouse she’s become. “The only way you are really ever going to be truly content is if you are constantly evolving,” she said.

Cardi B Gets Her Very Own Tom Ford Lipstick Shade

Cardi B winning streak continues

There’s famous, then there’s lipstick-named-after-you famous, and Cardi B is official latter now.

Amidst a packed (and insane) New York Fashion Week, her latest buzzy moment comes by way of Tom Ford Beauty, which just revealed a lipstick shade inspired by the rapper herself.

The beauty brand unveiled the latest Lips & Boys collection backstage at its Spring/Summer 2019 show (where Cardi sat front row). As usual, the lipsticks are named after people—and Tom Ford Beauty announced a cobalt blue shade named “Cardi” on Instagram. It’s fittingly a shade made for risk-takers and bold beauty lovers.
