Recently, Keyshia Cole dropped by 97.9’s “Boy Loco” to talked the recent explicit photo scandal that showed a Cole look-a-like performing oral sex, her new book and her upcoming new single with The Beat.
Its so weird, so awkward. Daniel is more of my backbone like, ‘Yo its cool, don’t worry about that.’ [People] were really excited about that possibly being me. I was like really? [They were saying] ‘Yeah Daniel, you are married, and this is you’. It was hurtful, because I built my career quite doing the opposite. So it is painful to come so far and for someone to do that. People who are really fans of mine, they know that I do not have a tattoo on my left arm. It was kind of already from the jump like ‘um no’. Men, more so than anybody, were really tweeting me about this picture.
On her new book:
I have a show in Oakland on the 17th of this month that’s actually sold out and I invited Mr. Ritz so he can come drive around Oakland with me and see where I’m from see the blocks where I’m from and all of that kind of stuff.
If [the book were to eventually] turn into a movie, I definitely would play myself.
On her new collaborated shoe line:
The shoe line with Steve Madden is ready, we are waiting for distribution but they are making them, which will take a little time. They are not stilettos but they are high heels. Then we have a wedges for the lady that doesn’t really want to wear a heel like that. They will be available at the top of the year at Steve Madden, Macy’s, Nordstrom, and Bloomingdale’s.
On her next single:
I like ‘Woman to Woman,’ ‘I Choose You’ it just depends. I think ‘Woman to Woman’ [featuring Ashanti] is doing the best out of all of them as far as independent sales on iTunes. So we will see and get the stats soon.

Also, the girl linked to the photo scandal, “Mari Lynn” came forward a few days after the pic hit the Web, and apologized to Keyshia and her family.
