Exclusive! Kelis Chats to BettyConfidential
The singer talks Chanel, hair, and her fashion pet peeve.
Sassy and spirited, Kelis is back is on the airwaves with a new album, Flesh Tone. The New York Times says, “(it’s) one of her strongest records yet.” She’s got a new dance music sound (as seen as evidenced by the addictive single “Acapella”), and a new focus on fashion thanks to her chameleon-like style — eat your heart out, Lady Gaga! And Kelis has collaborated with fashion photographer Rankin, who co-directed the video for “4th of July” and conceived the album cover.
Next up for the new mom is the hotly anticipated All Hearts tour with Swedish singer Robyn. But first, she took a moment to chat with BettyConfidential about what styles make her tick, her love of accessories, and her multicultural-inspired video ensembles. And as for mimicking her one-of-kind fashion sense? She could teach you, but she’d have to charge (though we have a handy how-to guide for free).
