Kelis is responsible for the hostile anthem, “Caught Out There,” but she did everything but scream hateful remarks when speaking on Nas’ Life Is Good album cover.
In Nas’ Behind The Music special, he revealed Kelis left her green wedding dress behind after she left him. He posed with that same dress on the cover, leaving many to think it would send his ex-wife upset.
“My feelings about it are not really relevant,” she tells NME. “At the end of the day, Nas is an artist and for whatever it’s worth, he’s one of the greatest, especially for what it is that he does. 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. So 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.”
