What do y'all think? I like it, it's something to bounce to. In addition to making new music, Kelly talked to Essence about what makes her feel beautiful. Check that out below.
It took a long while for me to know that I’m beautiful. I remember going through this phase when I was younger of wanting to pass by mirrors and not look at them. That was so ridiculous. I’ve learned now that beauty starts from within. If you don't know your worth, if you don't know your value, if you don't know how fantabulous you are -- it's going to be hard for other people to see it. Being appreciative of self, is beauty to me.
What makes me feel really beautiful is when I wake up and my skin is acting right [laughs] and I have a really great workout. When those days come, remember you deserve them because you work so hard.
One my beauty icons is Oprah Winfrey. I love that fact that she's so comfortable with herself. One of my favorite episodes of her show was when she showed millions of people how she woke up in the morning with no makeup on. That was so selfless and revealing. She's very real and genuine and I love that. Halle Berry is one of the most beautiful women I've ever seen. Same thing with Whitney Houston and Janet Jackson -- especially as a kid, because they have brown skin like me. I remember looking at magazines and television and seeing someone that looked like me and seeing a piece of myself in them.
What I’ve learned is, take better care of yourself. When you make the decision to do that -- that's a step toward reinvention because you probably need it and in that moment, you deserve it.
