Endorsed by tupac at an early age, thug fantasy keyshia cole reveals all. Yeah, we realize that statement's open to interpretation. what's it to you?

KING: We've stalked you more than Vivica Fox did 50. What's with the sassy, hard-to-get routine?
Keyshia: I was just afraid of giving everybody the goods. If you give everybody the goods, then there's nothing else to see [laughs]. But I did KING for all the dudes who said they wanted to see Keyshia Cole on the cover.

Okay, so let's get back to the relationship thing. Let's pretend I was a hockey-watching, Black-Eyed-Peas-listening-to cat from the suburbs. How should I approach Keyshia Cole?
For starters, just be yourself. But really, if your game is so weak that you need me to tell you how to step to me, then that's not the business. If you're trying to be another motherfucker, you are always going to lose.

You seem to have a natural beauty about you. There's not much fake about you.
You are saying that after I got my weave put in [laughs]. But I do feel like I'm pretty at times. Since I was really young, I always thought I was a model on a runway. I would be in the 'hood and my friends would be like: "Why are you wearing that outfit? We are only going to the mall.” And I'd be like, "I don't know, I'm a model.”
