Keke Wyatt Talks Her Lack of Self Confidence, Doesn’t Consider Herself Beautiful In ‘Rolling Out’ Magazine [Photos]

Posted May 14, 2016


Keke Wyatt dropped her fourth studio album Rated Love a few weeks ago, and the singer is gracing the pages of Rolling Out magazine, and looks stunning in the images shot by Ndeye Thioubou.

Between the pages, Keke dishes on her new album, her lack of self confidence and more. Get into the excerpts and snaps below.


When you look in the mirror, what is it that you see?
Someone who has a really big heart. But nobody can see it because they’re too busy paying attention to what’s on the outside. And I don’t care for what’s on the outside, because I feel like people are looking at me and judging me.

Why don’t you like what you see on the outside?
I don’t know. I honestly don’t know. You have to ask the Lord.

So, do you consider yourself confident?
No, and that’s honest. Can’t find it. I don’t know why. As God is my witness, even with singing I’m just not confident. Like if somebody said. “Keke sing ‘His Eye Is on the Sparrow,’ ” and I’ll sing it. But the whole time I’m wondering, “Ugh, do they hear that?”


I’ve always thought that there’s nothing wrong with being uncomfortable with your gift because that kind of helps you stay humble.
Probably. I think that’s why the Lord allows this shadow over my vision towards myself. I don’t know. Because my mom tells me all the time, “If I looked like you, I would be a mess!” And I’m like, “Yeah, you would be a mess because you’d look like a mess.” And she’s like, “There is no way. You’re absolutely gorgeous. Your body is banging. You sing your behind off.” And I’m just like, “OK.”

With that being said, and with that being the way that you see yourself, how do you instill confidence in your children if you don’t necessarily have it for yourself?
Don’t do what I do; do what I say. That’s how I feel. But I have confidence in being a mother. Now, I’m very confident in that and my family, and showing my love. And my compassion and taking care of my family and working like a monster and making sure that everybody has what they need and want. Even if I don’t get anything, I don’t care. So, I’m confident in the fact that I’m a great mom. And a good daughter, and a good sister, and a good wife, the best wife I can be without being a wench.
