It pays to be light skinned with long hair. You don't have to have a hit record, or you can sing like a goat and still get press coverage like you're a superstar.
Christina Milian, who hasn't had a hit song in ages, is featured in a bikini fashion layout for Cosmopolitan for Latinas magazine.
In the above photo Christina wears a Melissa Odabash swimsuit which retails for $234; Anjara Garcia necklace, $78; and Kevia spiked stacked ring set, $138, stacked rings with stones set, $188.
The 31-year-old New Jersey native signed a recording contract with Lil Wayne's YMCMB label in 2012. She has yet to release a record.
Christina told the magazine in an interview that several aspects of her personal life helped bring her back into the studio after a hiatus.
'My experiences (brought me back): being in love, being hurt, wanting to be free and growing from it. I’ve expressed all that on songs,' she explains.
'That’s the greatest thing: an experience you can grow from. I’m more vocal about my ideas in person and music.'
