Nas sent shockwaves earlier this month when he unveiled the cover to his upcoming Life Is Good album, due July 17. As we know, the cover features Nas in a suit holding the green wedding dress his ex-wife Kelis wore when they tied the knot. As he revealed in his VH1 Behind the Music special, Kelis left the dress behind after wanting a divorce and suddenly moving out. While out in the U.K. for this year’s Isle of Wight festival, Kelis voiced her thoughts on the artwork.

“My feelings about it are not really relevant, but you know at the end of the day Nas is an artist. And for whatever it’s worth he’s one of the greatest, and especially for what it is he does. So for me, I feel like especially for someone in hip-hop to kind of be genuine and honest, whatever the honesty is about, I think it’s awesome. So my feelings about it aren’t really necessarily valid, it’s just the fact that as an artist I can respect that he wears his feelings on his sleeve.”
