Jazmine Sullivan is one hell of a vocalist, and she deserves all her flowers! If you love music, R&B to be exact, she’s your girl. Hailing from Philadelphia, the 12x Grammy-nominated recording artist has been blessing fans with nothing short of timeless music for over a decade, exploding onto the scene with her 2008 debut Fearless.
Fast forward to 2021, she’s released her newest project Heaux Tales, which chronicles real-life stories of sex and relationshis from her closest friends and family, and even sang the National Antem at the highly-anticipated Super Bowl LV. Having been singing since she left the womb, Jazmine is a true lover of the art and continues to make history.
King Ice caught up with Jazmine via phone to discuss her jewelry preferences, and if she feels she needs to wear jewelry as an artist.
Do you have any go-to jewelry accessories?
You know what, I actually don’t. I’ll probably wear a pair of studs. In high school, I used to wear bangles up to my elbows. I used to wear all kinds of jewelry all the time, every day. I played jewelry out from when I was younger. [laughs] Now I’m so basic. I’ll wear a pair of studs or a little necklace, maybe a ring. Not a lot of jewelry these days.
Do you feel like you have to wear jewelry as an artist?
No, you don’t have to do anything as an artist from my perspective. You’re talking about blinged out chains?
Heck no. Not me, I’m not that type of person. I’ve never been superficial and I’ve never had to wear something to prove to anybody that I got money or I’m doing well in my life. If I’m smiling, I’m doing well. That should be indication that I’m good.
