Another Kid-Celebrity on the rise to stardom….12 year old Selah, is the daughter of Lauryn Hill and Rohan Marley, son of the legendary Bob Marley.
Selah was photographed by Victor Demarcheller for Teen Vogue magazine, and she sure looked amazing and definitely a ‘mini-me’ of her mother, Hill. In the interview, she spoke how she randomly introduced her interest in modelling to her father, ‘I was in a hotel with my dad, and I was just joking around and said, ‘Oh yeah, Daddy, I want to model…..I don’t know—the camera is just fun.”
She spoke of her many extra-curricular activities outside of school, which involve ‘piano, violin, guitar, basketball, gymnastics and ballet.. and the fact that she still manages to maintain an ‘A’ average, which was highlighted by her Mom. Of her notable musical talent in her family, she said she ‘likes her Mothers music..it is truthful..’ and of her Grandfather, Bob Marley of course, she find shis music soothing.
Selah made sure to express her ‘public love’ for Justin Beiber, (see video below) mentioning she admired his rise to fame, and his cute looks (lol). The bubbly, little diva said the pressure to be ‘another successful Marley’ was very much in existence, she said, “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.”
From the looks of things, it seems Lauryn is not taking anything for granted, haha Selah told sources, “One day I was like, ‘Mom, you wanna sign me at Sony?’” Selah recalls. Her mother’s response? “Let me hear your stuff and I’ll think about it.”
We have our eyes on this little Island princess on the rise…it really is scary how much she resembles her mother:) Taking the Caribbean to the worlddd!!
