Kelis recently turned 40-years-old and has proven time and time again that age doesn’t define you.
The “Trick Me” hitmaker shared a number of exotic photos to her Instagram account which she geotagged as Cap Cana Beach. In the shots, she is leaning on a tree by the sea in a fierce leopard bikini. Kelis is barefoot, enjoying her vacation while rocking short curly hair. The “Young Fresh N’ New” songstress has a number of tattoos which are on display and really capture the mood of the peaceful scenery. She kept the accessories quite subtle, posing in bracelets on her wrists and ankles, and a necklace around her neck.
In her caption, Kelis mentions that summer is over, but she refuses to believe that statement is true in her world.
Within one hour, the post racked up 9,000 likes, proving to be a hit with her followers.
“The goddess of summer!!!” one user wrote.
“Can we talk about the excellence that is Kelis?” another shared.
“Can you not ruin my life like every day?! Damn,” a third mentioned.
“I swear u get sexier and sexier each day that passes,” a fourth fan remarked.
“Fine like wine! Work it mama!” a fifth follower commented.
Last month, Kelis turned 40-years-old. On the day, her fans honored her, which The Inquisitr reported.
“Kelis meant a lot to me as a pre-teen/adolescent and continues to mean a lot to me as an adult. Happy birthday to an icon, an innovator, and a trendsetter,” one user shared on Twitter.
