All the media attention caused the rap legend to think twice about his approach to love.
Who Nas dated; list of Nas loves, ex girlfriends; breakup rumors.
With so many beautiful women notched on his belt, it's a wonder that Nas has yet to be caught with a celebrity sex tape.
Her parents encouraged her to play music at a very young age, signing her up for the church choir as well as saxophone and violin lessons.
"Me and my dad were like a two-person band," Kelis recalls. We played a lot of jazz and gospel, and some contemporary stuff." As a teenager, however, Kelis began to find her tranquil home life "oppressive" and grew restless to explore the wider world beyond her middle-class Harlem home.
“So [the divorce] put a lot of my business out there, man.
People weren’t thinking I was making that kind of money, and now they knew.” But if anyone’s up for the challenge of getting Nas to open his heart, it’s definitely his “real one” from Queens."La Guardia was competitive," she says, "but I think it was healthy to some degree.We all kind of strove together." She and several other African-American female students formed a singing group called Black Ladies United and attempted to attract record label attention. We were a mess."After graduating from La Guardia, Kelis got her big break in 1999 at the age of 20, when a friend introduced her to Pharrell Williams, one half of the prominent hip-hop producer duo, The Neptunes.After gaining acceptance at the age of 16, she left her previous private school and moved out of the house to begin attending La Guardia, starting a new phase in her life.Asked in an interview why she was so eager to leave home at such a young age, Kelis responded, "Just time to go." It was at La Guardia that Kelis became serious about pursuing a professional music career.Age: 37 Birthplace: New York City, USA, New York, Harlem Profession: Businessperson, Singer-songwriter, Designer, Singer, Chef Credits: Step Up, The 40-Year-Old Virgin, Mean Girls, The Big Short Also Ranked #56 on The Best Singers Who Only Need to Go By One Name Rumor has it that Nas dated Mary J.
