It’s safe to say that fans not only love Kehlani but can relate to her life experiences. In recent interview with Refinery29, the “Sweet Sexy Savage” singer talked about being this generation’s favorite unflitered singer, being titled as “other” and simple not giving a f*ck.
“Knowing what I’ve gone through in my life, I don’t want to keep going through that, reliving the emotion behind this song or reliving the anxiety behind that song,” she says. “So now, I’m just making stuff that makes me happy. People might want to hear a sad ass album from me, but I don’t give a fuck. Right now, I want to fill my life and music with beautiful vibes.”
“Bigger than just being on a stage in front of a camera, in front of a celebrity panel of judges and things like that, PopLyfe and America Got Talent really taught me how the industry works,” Kehlani says.
“It made me realize I was capable of doing that as a day job: Showing up to a set, working with people, working with professionals, sitting in front of cameras comfortably. It was all a really dope experience and it trained me more than anything on how to deal with a solo career.”
She also picked up a thing or two from her AGT mentor.
“Nick Cannon taught me that whatever you love to do, no matter how people feel about it, do it, and do it full force.”
