Kelis Talks Rihanna And Lady GaGa
The star speaks out about comparisons...
The Acapella singer said in a recent interview that everyone recycles everyone’s style, it’s just how the music business is, and she isn’t offended by any of the comparisons, or being called a ‘swagger jacker.’
She told Rap-up.com: “I’ve been around for a long time and that’s what artists do; we take from each other and we recycle and quite frankly, it may not even be them. It might be stylists that have been around as long as I have and are like, ‘Hey, let’s recycle this on these younger artists.’”
She added: “I’m not offended by it. I don’t really have much feeling about it, honestly. It just keeps me on my toes and allows me to continue moving forward, so it’s cool. I really don’t see it as a bad thing. I guess it means I’m on the right track.”
