Kelis Talks Not Being Perfect and Accepting Her Flaws

Since the release of her latest album ‘Flesh Tone,’ Pop/R&B singer Kelis has been fairly quiet in the states. Now on the heels of an album that didn’t perform to par and a divorce from ex-husband Nas, the “Milkshake” hitmaker opens up about her flaws and her decision to accept them so she can succeed in life.

“I’ve so much life tapped into a short period of time,” Kelis tells Pride Magazine. “You go through trial and error and either you figure it out or you fail and I’m not one for failure so I had to work it out!”

Understanding that her flaws helped her become a successful recording artist, Kelis adds: “I am very aware of when I am wrong and what I’m not good at. Its like, ‘OK, I’m not perfect. I’m not always top of my game, but whatever’. Acknowledge your flaws and move on because there are things you are great at. Focus on those.”

Her imperfections may draw the credit for her success but Kelis says sometimes it backfires.

“I’m incredibly frank to the point where I sometimes annoy my girlfriends but they respect the fact that I’m real!” she states laughing.
