The childhood pal of 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' star Kim Kardashian, Nikki Lund is all set to launch her music career this summer. After also establishing a fashion line, she has come out with hit songs such as 'Love Overdose' and 'This is it'.
According to the July issue of Bliss Babe, Nikki has opened up to share details on her exciting and upcoming career. The issue was recently released and showed the gorgeous 35-year-old posing in a lace bikini on the beach in Malibu. She was also seen posing in a garden as she sported a fun bare-shoulder black-and-white romper for the cover of the July issue.
She revealed that she is very excited to be back in the studio developing her new music and also spoke about the inspiration behind her latest single, Better Days. "It was the hope for better days ahead. I think that there is a lot of positive change for women that has happened in the past year as far as the #metoo movement," Nikki shared. "Also, it was kind of an inspirational thing where I was like, "Wow, this is really cool, kind of like better days are coming up and I can see it", she added.
"It is hopeful. There’s a lot of stuff that is going on in the world that is not so good and I was a little bit bummed about it. With all of the shootings [in schools], and how politically everything is upside down, crap that’s going on that’s not cool, I think we need more positivity," she continued. Nikki is a native of California and spent years developing her songwriting skills. She had also teamed up with Rondor Music Publishing for her stint in the band Secret Mind before choosing to go solo.
At the same time, she joined a design team at Jill Stewart in an effort to help her fashion career grow. In the year 2005, she launched her own loungewear line known as Eccentric Symphony. Her interest and passion for both music and fashion grew hand in hand. She also made her own stage clothes and started to get a lot of support and fans for her music and sense of style.
Nikki's clothesline is a mix of bold colors, exotic fabrics, and attention to detail which caters to women across multiple age groups. Her fashion line has caught the attention of many well-known and prominent magazines, celebrities, as well as media houses. Nikki has been seen on the cover of YRB, Esquire, featured in the pages of ELLE, Genlux, People, US Weekly, InTouch, Life & Style, and has been spotlighted by E!, Access Hollywood, Extra, VH1, and Good Day LA.
Celebrities such as Miley Cyrus, Carrie Underwood, Kelly Clarkson, Demi Lovato, Brandy, Brad Paisley, Blake Shelton and many more have sported Nikki's designs. Nikki was romantically linked to the lead guitarist of Bon Jovi's band, Richie Sambora whom she split up with, in the year 2017 after being together for around five years. She also shares a son with her partner Jeff Phillips who is a musician and a producer.
Nikki Lund has been close friends with Kim Kardashian for a long time and the two grew up together. According to DailyStar, Nikki said, "I'm still very close to the [Kardashian] family... It's such a small community we all know each other. They're a great family, amazing people, and I'm so proud of their success." She also revealed that what the fans see on screen on KUWTK is very much authentic.
"Everything is based on family, and that's not fake. Kris Jenner is a family woman. She is a good, Christian woman. It doesn't matter what anyone says, they're good people." Nikki also went to add that she is inspired by 'momager' Kris.
Lund added, "It all comes down to heart. The inspiration is not behind the fiscal success, it's behind the success they've had as a family. How they keep it together, love one another, and support each other. That's inspiration to me as I'm a new mum. I'm all about family, and I'm navigating my way as a mother, so I'm inspired by Kim and Kris as mothers".
Since acquiring her fame, Kim has become a major fashion icon and after having married rapper Kanye West, it is no secret that he is often behind her impeccable fashion sense. However, Nikki says that Kim had been showing signs of being a style icon long before she had even met Kanye. Reflecting on their teenage years, Nikki said, "Kim is such a trend-setter. Growing up, I was always impressed by her ability to put things together and make anything look good."
Nikki's new single 'Better Days' command attention and the song shows Nikki jumping into a swimming pool wearing a custom-made dress worth $10,000 [£7,000]. Referencing the introduction of the track, Lund shared, "Better Days for me is coming into your own, standing up for what you believe in and being yourself. Times have changed. It's a stronger world for women. Especially this year, it's a revolution."
