Books aside, the beautiful tween daughter of Rohan Marley and Lauryn Hill, Selah, is (not surprisingly) all about music and fashion. In the latest issue of Teen Vogue, the 12-year-old chica talks about her budding sense of style, as well as her intention to follow in the footsteps of not only her world-famous parents but her iconic grandpa, Bob Marley. “Singing is my favourite thing to do,” Selah says. “One day I hope to get signed to a record label.” In the meantime though, the straight-A seventh-grader is easing herself into the fashion industry with a modelling deal from Macy’s, already doing occasional jobs like runway shows.
Here’s what else the pretty young thing has to say in the April issue of Teen Vogue:
On her personal style: "My style is always different. Sometimes it's preppy, sometimes it's chic.”
Life with her four siblings: "If I were ever to go to war and come back as a veteran and make a speech, I'd say I got more scars fighting with my brothers than in the war.”
On her mother’s music: "I like her music. It's very truthful."
On her grandfather Bob Marley: "His songs are very soothing.”
Her future in music: "That's on my list. People tell me I have to follow in the footsteps of my mom and grandfather, but it's a lot of pressure—I can't really slip up and mess up the name."
