Today’s birthday girl is recording artist Kelis.
I hadn’t paid much attention to Kelis until last year when she released a song I really liked to play in the spin classes I lead at the gym. Once I started to notice her, though, I really began to like her. She’s got the Leo schtick down perfectly. She knows how to look fabulously controversial without even batting a false eyelash when she’s confronted about her look. She reminds me of Madonna because there’s an effortlessness about the way she wears costumes that doesn’t seem as forced and deliberately controversial as a few other artists who use shock value as their modus operandi. Lady Gaga, for instance, seems remarkably contrived to me.
Anyway, it’s no surprise that Kelis is a Leo. She represents the aplomb that defines this sign with — what else — aplomb!
