As she promotes her Woman to Woman disc, pretty gal Keyshia Cole covers the latest issue of ROLLING OUT in a leather skirt and studded Louboutin pumps where she talks about balancing her successful career and raising a family.  She also reveals the message she hopes her music leaves behind for her fans and when she knew Daniel Gibson was the right man for her.  Here are the highlights:

Are there any couples in entertainment you admire for being examples of a strong family?

I respect Beyoncé and Jay-Z, because I know how hard it can be to stay in love in this business. In the beginning, it appeared as if Jay-Z knew Beyoncé had work to do. I respect that. You can’t go into a relationship trying to change someone. You have to grow with that person and go through everything with them. That’s one thing that I noticed and I respect about them. Of course, I’m not with them every day, but that’s what I see from the outside looking in.

How do you balance family life with a hectic road schedule?

I can’t do it alone. It takes a village to raise a child. I have family who help me when I need it. My son’s grandparents have also been very helpful. [His grandfather] recently spent two weeks with us, and for him to see his papa was wonderful.

What do you want your overall message to be for those who relate to your songs?

I didn’t have great examples while coming up in Oakland. I was able to look to examples in the industry such as Brandy. She was able to do a lot at an early age. In Mary J. Blige I saw strength. She never gave up. That’s what I want to leave behind. I want young women to know that where they start doesn’t have to be where they finish. You have to take it a day at a time. You go through things, you learn and you keep fighting.

Do you remember the day you realized Daniel was the one?

I thought he was beautiful the first time we met. We had been talking for months before we physically met each other. We had ups and downs in our relationship, and we grew from it. When you make a commitment to marriage, you have to be serious about it. You can love the person you are with, but you have to be sure that you’re ready to make that commitment. This is not only for when times are good — marriage is for the remainder of our lives. [It’s for] building a life and making the best life for your children.

 

BONUS:

On the title track to her “Woman to Woman” disc, Keyshia teams with R&B songstress Ashanti where the two battle it out for the love of the same man.  

Keyshia spoke about what Ashanti's vocals brought to the sog to ThisIs50 saying,

“It’s her point of view against my point of view in a hypothetical scenario. I appreciate her realness and the gutterness that she brings to the table,” she said of her collaborator. “I know she gets really glammed up, but she’s still gutter. Her songwriting skills are off the chain, so I definitely wanted to incorporate that from a different woman’s point of view.”

Listen to the track above.

I love Keysha and her

I love Keysha and her boldness of putting her real life out there for the world to criticize and judge. She is real. Although Natasha said Keysha admires the Carters, Keysha stated she "respects" the Carters, big difference. I do think she could of picked other couples to "admire" like the Obamas. The Carters get a lot of hype. Even tho Jay and Bey are very talented, the difference is the Carters appear (another word Keysha used) perfectly happy and blissdfully in love. Not saying that they aren't but things can "appear" a certain way and be a totally different way. Now, if Keysha didn't put her reality on reality, then her life and relationship would also "appear" the same. LOL @ Ms. Thangfromthe and @ Rena1970 because its sad but true. More women should set their standards higher and stop being so simple minded. Its a disease that women shouldn't want to catch. lol

FIRST OF ALL, I'M NOT A FAN

FIRST OF ALL, I'M NOT A FAN AND NEVER WILL BE. YOUR ATTITUDE IS STANK, AND YOU TRY YO BEST TO BE MARY J, WHEN THERE CAN ONLY BE ONE, AND BABY YOU AIN'T THAT ONE NO MATTER HOW BLONDE YOU DYE YO HAIR AND SING ABOUT HEARTBREAK BITCH!! NOW, AS FAR ASS WHO YOU LOOK UP TO, THAT'S YO STUPID ASS BUSINESS. I UNDERSTAND THAT THERE ARE ONLY A HANDFUL OF BLACKS MARRIED AND ONLY A HANDFUL OF THEM WHO HAVE BEEN MARRIED LONGER THAN 24 HOURS, AND THIS IS PROBABLY BECAUSE YOU WHORES GIVE IT UP SO FREELY AND NEVER REQUIRE MUCH MORE THAN A PAIR OF RED BOTTOMS AND A FUCKIN NECKLACE WITH A HAPPY MEAL TO THE SIDE. WHEN THEY CAN GET THE MILK AND EVERYTHING ELSE FOR FREE, WHY IN THE HELL WOULD THESE NIGGAS MARRY YALL, BUT ANYWAY, IF THAT FAKE ASS POWER COUPLE JAY Z AND BEYONCE WHO CRAVE MONEY AND PRAISE THEMSELVES MORE THAN THEY DO THE ALMIGHTY, AND THE RATCHETNESS OF ILLITERATE TOYA AND HER MAN BEATER ASS HUSBAND, THEN I FEEL SORRY FOR YOUR MARRIAGE! YALL IMMATURES ASSES DON'T NEED MARRIAGE, YOU NEED COMMON SENSE!

I'm happy for Keyshia and how

I'm happy for Keyshia and how far she has come (The Way It Is is my sh!t), despite her upbringing I feel likes its every HOODRAT's dream to marry an ATHLETE and she found hers! I just can't understand Boobie when he talk...did he have a STROKE, was he in REMEDIAL classes? He seems VERY INSECURE! I wish them the best!

Real Keyshia Cole Gibson fans

Real Keyshia Cole Gibson fans are just that, if I'm not feeling a certain artist work, I don't buy it but I also don't bash them cause. I must remember music or any art form is subjective! Some people will love it, where as some other people won't. Let's attempt to keep it real but civil!

Yes Keyshia, you're doing a

Yes Keyshia, you're doing a great job. You're really growing up. Keyshia can admire anyone she wants to. The Carter's are a great example. Both are at the top of their game and they work very hard. Relationships take work, time and patience. Keyshia knows the Carters have handled it and made it work for their family. That's motivation for Keyshia because her husband has his own career as well. Carmelo/Lala have been motivated by the Carters, especially business wise. Many other couples are motivated by the Carters like Nelly/Ashanti, Diddy/Cassie and we all know crazy Kanye and pissy cum dumpster Kim K. These men are finally bringing their women to the forefront and showing it's okay to love your woman. Good job Keyshia! I always support real BLACK Love.

@Krazy Boo I definitely know

@Krazy Boo I definitely know coming right out of the box talking about Beyonce like Keri did really did harm her career and I know if she could do it all over again, she would do things differently! On the other hand please tell me how praising Jay and Bey and putting them on a pedalstal will help your career? Someone said that Brandy is saying she wants to work w/ Bey. Brandy needs to shut up! Really? You should be glad you had that lil hit w/ CB because that helped your album sells. Brandy would have flopped hard like: CiCi will, Monica has, and Keri &Ashanti has and up next Keyshia Cole! Even the gospel singer lady Yolanda Adams was trying to kiss their butts. What is going on here? Rih already has made it so why she feels the need to kiss up, who knows? Melanie Fiona and J Cole both are signed up under him and neither one of them have BLOWN UP! These people need to stop this mess w/ praising those 2 because it gets you NO DAMN WHERE! STOP IT AND HAVE SOME DIGNITY! They only care about themselves!

Its mostly Politics

Its mostly Politics Shay...but the music biz isnt like the 90's where people cud enjoy an array of artist doin their OWN thing! Now it's designed for only an elite few to flourish...Djs' took over what the public can and cannot hear... And while money talks it also can Stop a record from being played! Smh...Yrs back I had a buddy who worked at a radio station...Tell me Matthew Knowles had most urban stations on lock!! ..The thirst is uber obvious when acknowledging Bey bcuz for her its barely a faint whisper! Yea Brandy annoyed me with that BS..If I can recall she was America's first sweetheart who came with timeless music, sitcoms, and movies before destiny child or Beyonce! Anyhoo I've seen a lot of artist with actual talent str8t dblocked just so garbage can thrive!! Smh..

KEYSHIA COLE HAS SOME HATERS

KEYSHIA COLE HAS SOME HATERS ON YBF! Let everyone have their moment in time..There was Madonna..now there is Gaga..There was Kim..now there is Nicki..There was Beyawnce..now there is Rihanna..you can't compare any of them yet they all are musicians. This has nothing to do with the boy is mine..and Brandy nor Monica can sell records today. All of the haters below commenting won't support any of the artists anyways by buying the songs so SHUT UP!

haters all up in down this

haters all up in down this post lol. it's one thing to state you're not a fan because her musicianship doesn't do much for you. but it's a whole different to be straight up rude. each artist is different and have their own appeal. choose which artist appeals to you and do it moving. no need to be rude if an artist's musicianship doesn't appeal to you. it's really never that serious lol

Is there some Industry

Is there some Industry requirement that everyone in music has to acknowledge Jayz and Beyawnce? First Rihanna in her interview, before that Brandy saying she wants to work with Beyawnce, and now this. I would not want to be in the present day music industry..total politics.
BEEMA's picture

Why does everyone feels the

Why does everyone feels the need to kiss-up to Jay Z & Beyonce? Mentioning them and praising them will do nothing for her career right now. Why in the hell did she fire Manny, because I had no idea that Manny is managing that Niki M Twat person? Although Keyshia has come a long ways, early in her career she had a really BAD HAUGHTY ATTITUDE, and someone like Mary J was not gonna reach out to her. It's Keyshia own FAULT she had no mentors in the MUSIC INDUSTRY! Whitney would have never reached a hand out to Brandy if she had a NASTY ATTITUDE like Keyshia did. Brandy was sweet and humble that's why Whitney liked her. Right now she knows she is in a difficult spot because she really needed this album to make it, but I SERIOUSLY DOUBT it will! Now her marriage is a whole other subject. I don't see her making for the LONG HAUL with her SLOW,RETADED,CAVEMAN ATTITUDE, SEXIST,EBONICS,IMMATURE,JEALOUS,NONE ENGLISH SPEAKING HUSBAND! Keyshia may be hood but she's not dumb but HER DUMB LICK WINDOWS HUSBAND is and they will ultimately clash heads in the end. I give their marriage 3-4yrs top,if that. Being w/ an mature intelligent man is A MUST! In the beginning people were giving Monica's NBA husband the side eye but her husband is not on the slow tip like Keyshia's man is. In fact he's very intelligent. How did Keyshia's man even finish high school or even get to college? DAMN THE PUBLIC SCHOOL SYSTEM IN SOME STATES!

Information UPDATE Daniel H.

Information UPDATE Daniel H. Gibson graduated tops in his class at Jones High School in Houston Texas, he is a NATIONAL HONOR STUDENT, so miss us on your remarks about being stupid! He's a southern guy but he's far from unintelligent ok. Perhaps he was raised in a household with that type of mentality or perhaps he has some insecurities like some people have after certain heartbreaks, who knows! But I'm calling you out for saying such nonsense. By the way I will get KC's new CD Woman to Woman.

HOLD UP! I am from the south

HOLD UP! I am from the south and personally myself nor any of my family that are from NC,Fla,Ga,MD and other southern states don't talk like he does. So your EXCUSE for SPEAKING BAD ENGLISH is because he is from the south. You are out of your RABID DAMN MIND! I don't have any body in my family that needs to have CAPTIONS on just to understand what they are saying! It's OBVIOUS HE'S SLOW! Get over it! Ok so she has 3 Stans including you! Have a seat reject her music sucks! That's why she will flop again! Keyshia has grown as an individual, i'll give her that, but her bad music remains the same! END OF STORY FLOP CITY HERE SHE COMES!

Black celebs that are still

Black celebs that are still trying to "make it" or achieve more than their current status HAVE to kiss-up to Jay-Z and Beyonce to the media or else it is career suicide. It might not help your career, but saying anything negative will definetly hurt it. Look at Keri Hilson, her career just cant seem to take off because she was so vocal about her dislike of them. Their stans are just crazy like that
Krazy-Boo's picture

I think it is only good

I think it is only good manners not to bash other artists it shows pettiness, as for Keri well if she said something negative then that shows how insecure and petty she is, she has a sh-tty attitude IMO anyway for someone who can barely carry a tune.

Wow the hate and jealously of certain celebs on this board. Keyshia canot sing that well but she tries and she can admire who the HELL she pleases.
sweetpea1989's picture

LOL, they are just like

LOL, they are just like Pavlov's dogs when they see "Beyonce," "Jay-Z," or "The Carters" in the thread title. Like you said, KEYSHIA can like or admire whomever she wants, the same way that someone cannot like or admire whomever they want. She was asked a question, and she answered it. I like Keyshia's first two singles, but I still need to hear the entire album before I can consider purchasing. In order for an artist to get my money these days, I need a complete album, not just a few hot singles.
Capital Cutie's picture

This is just my opinion ,

This is just my opinion , there are at least 9 songs on her new CD Woman to Woman that are straight hits, really. If you don't believe me go to iTunes and listen to each song. It gives you and a minute listing time on each track. My faves are I Choose You,Next Move with Robin Thicke, Hey Sexy, Signature, Wonderland, Stubborn and Woman to Woman.

Umm the whole comparing

Umm the whole comparing Keyshia Cole and Ashanti's vocals to Brandy and Monica's o_0..... and comparing this song to the spark of 'the Boy is Mine' in the 90s... HELL TO THE NAW!!! This song can't even touch 'the Boy is Mine.' If Keyshia wanted to stun audiences she should have hooked up with an actual vocalist! Sorry but this song sounds shitty!

Listen I don't have anything

Listen I don't have anything against Keyshia Cole or even Ashanti (although I must admit her voice isn't the best). I actually wanted to like the song and the hype about it being like a Monica and Brandy duet really made me want to love it! "But this ish right here, is totally different!" [In Tamar Braxton's voice]. I'm not gonna lie or not state MY OPINION because it's not nice! If the song sounds like shit to me the song sounds like shit to me! Am I saying the whole album is going to be that way, hopefully not! But if stating my opinion isn't being "a real lady" as you put it then so DAMN BE IT!!!

I feel that Jay is married to

I feel that Jay is married to BEYONCE instead of Beyonce Knowles and BEYONCE is married to JAY Z instead of Sean Carter and if neither had the status that they have, I highly doubt that they would be married. Thats how shallow and narcissistic they are. Wrong couple to admire Keyshia.
Ms.Thangfromthe5thflr's picture

EXACTLY! Unfortunately a lot

EXACTLY! Unfortunately a lot of people idolize and admire people they have NO BUSINESS admiring! Not knowing what their "so called idols" represent! Some people act like they are the only black couple in Hollywood. You don't know what goes on behind closed doors or what shady shit occurs in their marriage, all you see is the glitz and the glamour. It's funny how no one points out how uninterested and distant Jay seems in the relationship. When she was supposedly pregnant, Jay was touring all over the place while his pregnant wife stayed home or traveled long hours on a bus to come see him. I'm not saying their relationship isn't real but it does appear fake in a lot of instances. They claim they're such private people, but they do a lot of things as a couple for publicity and to maintain their status as a "power couple." Everything they do whether it's public appearances, fundraisers, releasing pics on tumblr, it's all planned and calculated. Which makes me believe their relationship is more of a business deal than anything else.
Crazy Sexy Cool's picture

I think that their

I think that their relationship was probably real back when it was private. But since she got pregnant, they are on PR overdrive. Beyonce and her tumblr, making appearances together, dipping their toes in the political world...I dont know...seems very calculated and seems like they couldnt break those doors apart, but only as a "power couple". Lastly, Jay-Z must realise that his wife is ashamed of their daughter's appearance, because she looks so much like him, so that cant be good for their relationship.
