Kelis Says She Doesn’t Listen to Nas’ Music


Island Def JamFormer couple, Nas and Kelis, are both promoting their respective music projects, but it seems the rapper’s ex-wife is not interested in his new material. In a recent interview with the New York Times Magazine, the singer finally addressed her thoughts on Nas posing with her wedding dress on his infamous album cover for Life is Good.

“It’s not even the dress. The joke behind that is that it’s the slip to the petticoat to my dress,” she told the publication earlier this month. “I think when I moved out I just left it. That’s all he had, poor thing.”

When asked if she knows why the rapper chose to use the dress on his album cover, Kelis replied, “All kinds of ideas of why, but I don’t really care.”

The rapper’s nod to their failed marriage, which spanned from 2005 to 2010, seemingly does not make her sentimental. “Maybe for others, but not for me. I don’t really listen to his music anyway,” she adds.

Meanwhile, Nas is still celebrating the 20th anniversary Illmatic — he released a double disc version of the album, Illmatic XX, and premiered his documentary, Time Is Illmatic, earlier this week.

Kelis is gearing up to release her first album in four years, Food, on April 22.
