Kehlani stepped onto the grey carpet at the 2017 Soul Train Awards looking like a goddess in her House of CB gown and the singer also just so happened to be beaming with happiness.
Sure she can chalk the glow up to the major success over the past few years, but it’s her new relationship with her girlfriend that also has been adding to the complete and utter joy.
For the Oakland native, she is very happy and is proud to be in an “openly queer relationship.” When asked about the importance of sharing her love on Instagram, the singer told HipHollywood at the annual awards show, “life is just too short. It’s too short to have these weird rules about censoring love and not showing it.”
She added, “People need to be it’s ok, be gay and loud.”
Just last week, the signer shared this sweet image of she and her “punpkin” on Instagram, expressing her love. “I always think of how showing off love as an artist takes the mystery away… or distracts people from the music.. or just plain makes both parties vulnerable and open,” she wrote.
The 22-year-old continued, “BUT, then eye think about how short life is and that every chance you get to scream your love (of any kind) into the universe, you should take… because it isn’t really guaranteed. If you got something special, don’t dim the light because you’re afraid of how bright it will truly shine. Im a grateful lil punkin.”
