Common and Selita Ebanks come together for a sexy cover for Uptown magazine’s latest issue. Inside, the Chicago-bred rapper – who recently released his 10th album Nobody’s Smiling – talks Serena Williams, his sex-symbol status and more.
Common’s single now, and enjoying his unattached life, but says he believes in marriage. He thought it would happen with Serena, but he’s taking his time now before he jumps into something else. “If I’m in it as much as I was with Serena, as much as I loved her…it takes time to heal and find that peace to be able to move on,” he says.
He reluctantly approaches his sex-symbol status; “It’s not what I reach for, but I like women, so I’m not running away from it,” he smirks. “But I’m not running out saying, ‘Hey let me get my eyebrows arched’ or whatever sex symbols do.”
Addtionally, he talks stopping the violence in Chicago, and where he fits in music today.
