Kelis Addresses Nas' "Life Is Good" Cover Art: "For Someone To Be Genuine Is Awesome"

Kelis says Nas is "one of the greatest" as she assesses his album cover.

Earlier this month, when Nas revealed the cover art to his upcoming album, Life Is Good, it featured a picture of the Queensbridge emcee sitting with his ex-wife Kelis' green wedding dress on his lap.

In a recent interview with NME, Kelis gave her opinion on her ex-husband's choice for his album's cover art. 

"My feelings about it are not relevant, but at the end of the day, Nas is an artist," explained Kelis. "And for whatever it's worth, he's one of the greatest, especially for what it is that he does."

Kelis continued, adding that the choice in art showed an honest side of Nas that she appreciated, while adding a careful caveat. "For me, I feel like, especially for someone in Hip Hop, to really kind of be genuine and honest - whatever the honesty is about - I think it's awesome."

"My feelings about it aren't necessarily valid, it's just the fact that, as an artist, I can respect that he wears his feelings on his sleeve. I like that."

    it is simple no Genuine there all he is saying is life is good now that she is Gone out of his life, it real easy and simple

  • realniggahs do real things

    Man- you should never ask a ex- baby momma to cover any work of the person she used to be with. This gold digger threw a dagger like she was trying to compliment Nas. Its obvious her 15 minutes of fame has dimmed so leeching on to nas is bitter sweet for him- at least he got a son out the deal...Church!

  • foekist

    I LOVE her voice. That horsed voice of hers... I could listen to her all day.

  • what dee

    Why does Kelis voice always sound so dry and horse? It makes me cringe.... I wonder if thats from smoking...

  • A@b.C

    The thing of it is that Kelis needs to suck on my dick while I head-fuck the shit out of dat slaG and maybe smack her on the face a little too. She's my momma and I'm a mmmmmMMMMotherfucka so momma let me turn you into a momma-been-FuCKtA

    Basically she realized Nas sells more copies than her and is now trying to get back to him in order to stay relevant.

  • My2Cents

    It's All Just Simple Karma...

  • Unknown

    This bitch just trying to get him more album sales so he can keep payin child support on time.. she is not relevant and should have never spoken about the cover.

  • P'muye

    U guys should jst leave kelis alone. I mean she hasn't said anything wrong here. Besides u guys don't knw wat happnd btwn dem.

    • tyrine bekkon

      Get the f up out of here Kelis career was fading and by being with Nas he almost kept her alive- she is like one of the chicks in Escape or Total- there is nothing interesting about her except a fat ass; Well thats not all that bad...(you know we dudes love a tight lil pussy that chicks with fat asses have) but moving along....(smile) her fan base is not like it used to be- she spent all her time trying to be Mrs. Jones, and her goal was not working. Shit sherlock- this aint Jay Z and Beyonce and Beyonce still got work in the mix, Kelis is a bumb baby momma

    • anonymous

      Nas have this bitch tattooed on his arm?!?! Well, after that he doesn't deserve to date anymore ho and doesn't deserve to have arms as well

  • me

    kelis does not deserve to be interviewed or thought of. Kelis, Superhead, and Amber Rose should give lessons on how to nothing but be a hoe.

    Jay married Beyonce, that is the reason he will always be better than Nas.

      the ridiculous nas stans still bringing up ether. whose other rapper's career highlight is a diss track? lmao. jay killed nas by signing him. you should take your own advice.

    • Anonymous

      I love how Nas stans ALWAYS have to refer to an 11 year old diss song...the beef is long-dead nigga, get over it.

      Beyonce is aight, Jay got killed on Ether son so go kill yourself over your Jay is better than Nas comment.

      Beyonce isn't attractive to me. I watch her interviews and she seems a little dumb....Plus, I'm not feeling the yellow weave. Kelis is much better...She would be perfect if she wasnt a goldigger.


    Fuck that gold-digging hoe. She ruined Nas' life. In the words of Kurupt, don't turn a hoe into a housewife.

    • Anonymous

      how did she ruin his life? theres more to life than money and it sounds like he owes more in taxes than shes getting anyways

  • Anonymous

    why do i gotta watch that retarded mountain dew ad everytime i try to watch a video on this site, thats pretty gay i guess since she taking all his money the least she could do is say something nice about him and his album cover

    • Monty Evans

      Yeah I wholeheartedly agree , the dirty bitch was condescending and trying to imply "for what he does as an artist" shit was madd negative. But thats all right tho- Nas may not believe in Jesus christ but after dealing with Kelis he will know that the devil does exist in spirit if not anything else. I am hating the person who asked her to comment at all

      lmao I was think the same thing. This gold digging bitch.
