Although pain is no longer on Keyshia Cole‘s agenda, the R&B singer can still deliver hits her fans can relate to. The mother and wife of NBA star Daniel Gibson has had a very successful comeback with her upcoming shoe collection, BET series and covering JET magazine. The 31-year-old gets leather chic on the cover of the newest issue of Rolling Out magazine.
In the cover story, she goes in depth about love, her new album and her favorite celebrity couple. “I respect Beyoncé and Jay-Z, because I know how hard it can be to stay in love in this business. In the beginning, it appeared as if Jay-Z knew Beyoncé had work to do. I respect that. You can’t go into a relationship trying to change someone.” Keyshia continued, “You have to grow with that person and go through everything with them. That’s one thing that I noticed and I respect about them. Of course, I’m not with them every day, but that’s what I see from the outside looking in.”
Cole also recalled the day she realized Daniel was the one. “I thought he was beautiful the first time we met. We had been talking for months before we physically met each other. We had ups and downs in our relationship, and we grew from it. When you make a commitment to marriage, you have to be serious about it. You can love the person you are with, but you have to be sure that you’re ready to make that commitment. This is not only for when times are good — marriage is for the remainder of our lives. [It’s for] building a life and making the best life for your children.”
