Around the time world learned that things were ‘officially’ over between Keyshia Cole and Daniel “Boobie” Gibson, the singer released a telling track titled ‘She’, which hinted of a lesbian love affair. The internet went crazy, with many began to wonder whether or not the track was also hinting that Cole has been seeing women since her split.
However, that this is not the case. Instead, Cole says that for her – ‘She’ is actually about her personal journey to becoming familiar with her own body following her separation from Daniel.
In a recent interview with WGCI radio, Cole said…
“I had to get familiar with myself so I think that song is really, in essence of what that song ‘She’ is about. It’s getting to know yourself. I know people think it’s about girl-on-girl action, which it was at first, and then I kinda switched the lyrics around a little bit.”
Speaking of her separation, she said preparing to go through a divorce has altered her perspective on love and relationships, and that the next time around will place a higher value on being a man’s friend first.
“It’s no way of getting around not knowing if somebody is ready or not. That’s the whole thing about friendship. Whoever I end up with, I’ve been praying that he’s my friend first. If you think about being friends, you’re not going to go and get them hit up. You not gone put them in a situation where you gone get them shot.
You ain’t gone put me in a situation where you make another woman think she got something over me. If we friends and you really love me like you say you do, it’s certain things you’re not going to do out of respect.”
As for what she has been doing to get through the difficult split, Keyshia says she has been directing her energies towards becoming more physically fit.
“Gym, yeah. Just trying to eat better. I did a fast for about 4-5 days…just juicing. I actually loved it. I go in the steam room before I work out for about 10-15 minutes then go work out for about 2 -3 hours then go pick up my son from school and get back to my motherly duties. Right now, working. Trying to stay focused.”
