One person who isn’t getting caught up in all the fanfare about the 20th anniversary of Nas’ Illmatic album, is his ex-wife, Kelis. Recently, the singer with a well-documented love for cooking mentioned she doesn’t even listen to the Queens rapper’s music.
The New York Times Magazine asked Kelis about the now infamous Life Is Good album cover that featured Nas holding her dress, and the answers were very, very frosty.
New York Times: Your ex-husband, the rapper Nas, put your wedding dress on his album cover. Why did he still have the dress?
Kelis: It’s not even the dress. The joke behind that is that it’s the slip to the petticoat to my dress. I think when I moved out I just left it. That’s all he had, poor thing.
NY: Did you know that was coming? He gave me a heads-up like two days before it was released.Do you know why?
Kelis: All kinds of ideas of why, but I don’t really care.
NY: But it brought up a bunch of stuff you were probably hoping was in the past.
Kelis: Maybe for others, but not for me. I don’t really listen to his music anyway.
Interestingly, almost two years ago the “Bossy” singer said she could “respect” the album cover.
Think Kelis is still feeling a ways about her ex-hubby? Let us know in the comments.
