Kelly’s the woman in demand for the mag’s Summer 2012 issue and though she didn’t talk about fashion at all, her glam looks are to die for. What Kelly did talk about though, is her upcoming album, which she’s already working on and she says the LP is definitely for the ladies.
“I am more excited going into it this time than last time because I have a concept. I’m making this album for my ladies, oh, yes, and it is strong.
The 31-year-old added, “All of the producers I’ve been working with get the concept so much that they brought in a little more aggressive—and sometimes masculine—approach, but there is a really incredible top line: I want to tell women how incredible we are, how our intuition is so spot-on. Sometimes we don’t listen to it, but it is the thing that can actually make us happier.”
Though her fourth project is all about celebrating women, men should probably take a listen too, Kelly says, not just because they’ll like it, but because they’ll probably learn something too.
“I know that men will buy it. Y’all will definitely buy it and sing to it. You’ll say, ‘I can’t believe I’m singing to this!’ If you want to learn about women, listen to my next album!”
We’re always up for men learning a little somethin’ somethin’ about us. Kelly also talked to Vegas about her Destiny’s Child days and life as an X Factor judge but we much rather gaze at the gorgeous red Blumarine dress she wore for the shoot and the fierce blue Tom Ford tuxedo pant suit she was shot in.
