Kelis Still Brings All The Boys to the Yard

Kelis Still Brings All The Boys to the Yard

There’s more to Kelis than “Milkshake,” and she’s sitting down with to talk about her music, motherhood (her son Knight was born in July) and the end of her marriage to Nas.

Here’s what the 30-year-old singer had to share:

On motherhood: “Waking up at five in the morning and seeing that Knight‘s awake and he’s got this bright, sunny, delicious face looking at me like, ‘Good morning mom.’ It’s literally the greatest thing to wake up to and it tickles me every time. I adore him.”

On her fifth album: “As far as music goes, if I’m not a little bit nervous, then I’m not doing what I should be doing. You gotta be nervous because it means your actually taking a chance and going towards something better. Nerves are important. Secondly, I feel fantastic. I just turned 30 and it’s been amazing. Being a woman in your 30s, things just start to make sense. You’re as sexy as you’ll ever be and you just feel really good. I love where I’m at in my life right now.”

On the half-shaved head look: “Well I was definitely the first to do it. The only other person I would give credit before me is Pepa. Other than that, I expect them to copy me. What else are they supposed to do? They’re young. God bless them.”

    She’s just a one hit wonder. It is funny when people like her try to convince us that superstars like Rihanna are copying her (the shaved head look) when in reality why would someone want to copy this no talent loser. She has nothing on Rihanna or even Cassie.

  • blah

    so full of herself

  • Gia

    I take it the three people that have posted so far are under the age of 20 or only listen to mainstream radio, thus no nothing beyond Rihanna 2007. I pitty you, do research please. Rihanna obviously did.

    I hate it how celebs glorify parenting newborns, by pretending that it is not a hard job and they never get tired..While they are at it why don’t they add the details that it is all very relaxin bcoz of their hired help at their beck n call. Watch some celebs tv realities, when the babies get out of control,they hand them over to a nanny. The regular moms deal with it and learn by doing, and try to keep it together.


    When Rihanna can set a trend in music or fashion, then her stans can talk ish. Until then, Rihanna will always be a swagger jackin, herpes, drunk slut. Kelis is baddest chick in the game. Been setting trends in music since 1999. Rihanna will never come for Kelis in those departments and thats fact. Look at Rihanna, shes not even herself. She dont even dress herself. No matter how many records Kelis have sold in the past, Kelis music is a zillion times better than Rihanna’s and her style is much more original and not forced and poser-ish like Rihanna.

    kelis is the s h i t, you guys just don’t know!!

  • Maggie B

    Compare Kelis with Rihanna and Cassie? B*tch please?!!
    Rihanna is pure comedy, she ain’t got no style, she can’t dress by herself! And don’t forget that like five years ago, she was this cute west indian girl with long and curly locks just trying to look like Beyoncé!
    Kelis don’t need no stylist, fashion sense is in her genes, she always have been a risk taker and didn’t need to follow the trend!!!
    Talking about Cassie, yeah she’s cute but she really should stick to being a model and having sex with Diddy as she can not sing!!!
    Those girls ain’t got nothing on Kelis, you can’t compare Kelis creativity with their shit! Rihanna ain’t even able to write a song!!!
    Rihanna’s image don’t even match with the bubblegum music she’s selling!!
    Long live to Kelis and real creative people!
    It’s such a shame that real artists don’t get enough credit !!!!

  • FreeWill

    Even Beyonce is jacking Kelis’ Bohemian look. Kelis started that years ago when Beyonce was still dressing street. Expect Bey to start copying and watering down Kelis’ fashion next year and say she was the originator. But us in the hood know better.

  • lee

    calm down Kelis and the happy crew!
    style is open for interpretation ….I really don’t think people were intentionally saying “ya know what let’s go and copy Kelis from 1995 like Kelis was the only one ? If i were you Ms. Milkshake I would feel complimented to know that people are inspired if nothing else from other artist because that’s the cycle of everything fashion, Music, design, writers…everything!
    I could say that GAGA is jacking Grace Jones and Nona Hendricks or anybody. Everybody has their day, remember that
    Be glad that you are a contributor to the ARTS and just keep going who cares who shaved off what. I could say that you are inspired by Erika Badu or George Clinton P-Funk or PEPA or the times that you live in how bout that! Rihanna is evolving and this is not the last style look you will see on her. You changed and developed ,Madonna changes, Janet changes, Britney, Cristina all pf em, thats what happens. am I right?

  • she?

    she needs to fire that awful styist!
    almost as bas as Janet (i love you but) Jackson when she was on tour with the mad max look, not a good look for miss nasty.

  • tealeaf

    Silly girl..Indians started the shaved look with the Mohawks..she is just a lame copycat herself.

  • Candy

    Kelis is just trying every tatic to stay in the spotlight. She tried dissin Nas that didn’t work now she is off to the it girls. She is a loser period…..

    Young folks don’t know anything. That is why we are going back in time instead of forward. Everyone knows that all of Rihanna’s anything is from back in the day. The being naked on everything is setting women back too. That is what had to be done to get noticed back then. Men don’t give a penny for your thoughts now-a-days because your body means more to them and that is the image she feeds them. No respect for herself. I went through the same thing and got far before I realized ,my self worth and changed my style. You don’t see Beyonce walking around town with everything hanging out. Jay aint having that, but allows Rihanna to do it because he knows she has nothing else to offer.

  • Kelly Luv

    Wow, she is hot, I can’t wait to hear it

  • Meadow

    oh seriously, people?! no one said Kelis invented the style, but she did bring it back to the forefront of popular culture. Remember when everyone started rocking blonde hair with colored tips…yeah. She started that too. Just facts folks. Just facts.

  • lakers fan in boston
