Turns Out Your Milkshake Is Better Than Kelis’ Because She Never Made One
Huffington Post - 9 months
The very bedrock of our great nation was built on a single truth: milkshakes bring all the boys to the yard. Oh, were you thinking it was something about liberty or justice? Try again.  But in a Trojan Horse-like twist, the author of the age old adage, R&B singer Kelis, who used the sweet promise of male attention and chocolatey goodness to reach No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, sits on a BED OF LIES.  In a recent interview with The Guardian about her new cookbook, which inexplicably does not include a milkshake recipe, Kelis admitted to never actually making a milkshake during her 36 years on planet earth.  "I don’t think I’ve ever made a milkshake," Kelis, who graduated from Le Cordon Bleu culinary school, told The Guardian. "I made a smoothie the other day that was really good – protein powder, spinach, orange, and crushed ice with a little bit of honey and coconut water. I’ll make you a Kelis smoothie next time you come over." My protein pow ...

10 Songs By Grammy Winners That Don't Mean What You Think They Do
Huffington Post - about 1 year
Remember the days when people would sing a song about a milkshake, and they were actually talking about a milkshake? (Looking at you, Kelis.) Well, bad news, y'all. It turns out those days didn't exist. It's not that milkshakes don't deserve a song (because duh), but innuendo and alternative meanings have been in chart hits forever. In honor of the 2016 Grammys, here are 10 songs from previous winners and nominees that might not mean what you think they do: 1. The “bitch” Jay Z refers to in “99 Problems” is a dog. During a talk at the New York Public Library, Jay Z explained that the "bitch" he talks about in the second verse of "99 Problems" is actually the K9 unit that'd be looking for drugs in the car.  2. Judas Priest's "Raw Deal" is about a gay biker bar. Judas Priest lead singer Robert Halford came out as gay in 1998. During that time Halford revealed to MTV that there have been gay innuendos throughout his songs. After the fact, it' ...

A Most Ingenious Paradox
Huffington Post - about 1 year
Many opera companies have experimented with updating works from the standard repertoire in order to make them more relevant to contemporary audiences. Why? Doing so has financial as well as artistic rewards (because the scores to many operas are now in the public domain, an impresario may not need to pay royalties in order to be granted production rights). In 1866, Gaetano Donizetti's 1832 opera, The Elixir of Love, became the subject of a musical parody written by none other than William S. Gilbert, entitled Dulcamara, or the Little Duck and the Great Quack. In the 1980s, James De Blasis used a new translation of Felice Romani's libretto for an updated version of Elixir of Love that was set in the Wild West and has occasionally been referred to as "Adina Get Your Gun." In 2012, tenor Rolando Villazòn sang the role of Nemorino and directed a new "Wild West" production of Donizetti's opera at the Festspielhaus Baden-Baden. The San Francisco Opera recently scored ...

10 Things Black People MUST Know This Holiday Season
Huffington Post - over 1 year
As quick as Halloween ended was just as fast as the Christmas season seemed to have kicked into high gear. From the Starbucks holiday cup controversy to premature Christmas tree displays, this is where we are. And as some of us grinches reluctantly get dragged kicking and screaming into the holiday cheer, I was called upon to construct a list of the 10 Things Black People MUST Know This Holiday Season. And before you even ask "why Black people," well, that's because that's what I am. It's all in good fun. 10. Santa Is "Real" .... And he's "Black" Too!!! Maybe it's The Obama Effect. Or maybe it's just pandering and capitalism at play but little tykes don't only have to resort to sitting on the knee of an Alabaster St. Nick when visiting shopping centers with their money spending parents anymore. According to the Associated Press, a growing trend of ethnic Santa Clauses are getting underway across the country. There's one, quite popular, in Atlanta (of course!) who refers to himself a ...

Why Do We Call Good Food 'Orgasmic'?
Huffington Post - over 2 years
The following is an excerpt from The Language of Food: A Linguist Reads the Menu, in which author Dan Jurafsky analyzes user-generated restaurant reviews to draw conclusions about the language -- positive or negative -- that we use to talk about food: You can always get a good argument going in San Francisco by asking people for their favorite taqueria. I lean toward the carnitas at La Taqueria on Mission, but our friend Calvin can be pretty eloquent on the subject of the al pastor at Taqueria Vallarta on Twenty-Fourth. San Franciscans are similarly contentious about the best dim sum, and have been politely disagreeing about tamales since the 1880s, when the city was famous for the vendors plying the streets every evening with pails of hot chicken tamales. (Some things, of course, are simply not a matter of opinion, like the best place for roast duck -- it’s Cheung Hing out in the Sunset, but don’t tell anybody else, the line is already too long.) It’s not just San Francisco. You ...

Why Is There Still a 3 Song Limit at Concerts?
Chicago Times - over 2 years
(©2014 Alex Garcia/Chicago Tribune)   The much adored Kelis was the first concert I have photographed in awhile, and the person at the Park West box office said I'd be able to photograph the whole concert. He was mistaken. I was escorted out shortly after the third song while concertgoers were still lifting up their cellphones, photographing the singer throughout the entire concert.   The experience left me scratching my head over the question, why is there still a 3 song limit?  I've asked a lot of people about it, I haven't heard an answer that makes a lot of sense (please leave one below to wisen me up).   I don't suppose that the quality of concertgoer images as a whole is that great, but with the right position, and the right phone, in the hands of the right person, it's possible to make some strong pictures from up front.     I imagine that there are bloggers and Instagrammers who, standing close, are likely making money from concert pictures.  I would al ...

    More Details Hide Details According to Kelis's management firm at the time, Three Six Zero Group, the album was to feature production from Skream, BURNS, Tom Neville, Dan Black, and Caspa. She said of the album, "I've been on a real 1990s vibe with this record, it's kind of trip-hoppish it's more electro, it's a little deeper and darker". The Skream-produced single "Distance" received its UK radio premiere in mid 2012, although the rest of the material from these recording sessions remains unreleased. Kelis was featured on Dan Black's single "Hearts" and Skream's "Copy Cat" (both 2013), the latter of which led to a dispute after Kelis alleged that Skream refused to have her appear in the music video.
    Kelis collaborated with Scottish producer Calvin Harris on the 2011 single "Bounce", the lead single from Harris' third studio album, 18 Months. "Bounce" debuted at number two on the UK Singles Chart, becoming Kelis's tenth UK top ten single.

Scottish electronica producer Calvin Harris was also said to be collaborating with her. Kelis later said of this period, "I was like, 'I will never put out another record again, I hate this business, I hate all these people.' I was in this race that I didn't even realise that I was in. I woke up and ten years had passed. That was never my plan". She subsequently took a hiatus from music.

    More Details Hide Details She found mainstream success in the U.S. later that year, with her Hot Dance Club Play number-one, Billboard Hot 100 top three single, "Milkshake"; this helped to propel her third album, Tasty, to gold status in the U.S., where it peaked at number 27 on the Billboard 200 and has sold 533,000 copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan. "Milkshake" also went gold, selling over 500,000 copies, and earned Kelis a Grammy Award nomination in 2004 for Best Urban/Alternative Performance.

She stated in an interview: "I felt like I had a lot to prove with this album. People had started messing with me along the lines of 'Is she REALLY any good without The Neptunes? - which I knew was ridiculous. And so I was like 'I'll take that challenge'."
  • 2002
    Age 22
    Nasir Jones and Kelis met at an MTV Video Music Awards party in 2002; they dated for one year before becoming engaged in 2004, and marrying in January 2005.

  • 2001
    Age 21
    Kelis's second album, Wanderland, was released in 2001 in Europe, Asia, and Latin America, but did not receive a North American release.
    More Details Hide Details According to Kelis, her U.S. record company at the time, Virgin, had laid off those that worked on Kaleidoscope; their replacements did not understand or believe in Wanderland, which led her to leave the label around the time of the album's European release. A commercial failure, Wanderland peaked at number 78 in the UK, although its sole single release, "Young, Fresh n' New", was a top forty entry on the UK Singles Chart. The album, which was produced in its entirety by the Neptunes and features collaborations with members of Clipse and No Doubt, was well received by publications such as The Guardian and NME.
    In 2001, Kelis won the BRIT Award for International Breakthrough Act and the NME Award for Best R&B/Soul Act, before joining Moby and U2 on their Area:One and Elevation tours, respectively.
    More Details Hide Details Kelis and the Neptunes' output at this time was heralded as foreshadowing an innovation in contemporary R&B, but she later said, "I was never an R&B artist. People coined me one but that's because, especially if you're in the States, if you're black and you sing, then you're R&B". Her colorful style in both clothing and hair received considerable attention.
  • 1999
    Age 19
    Kelis achieved moderate international success with her 1999 debut album, Kaleidoscope, but left her label Virgin Records after its follow-up, Wanderland (2001), received little sales attention and no U.S. release.
    More Details Hide Details Her third album, 2003's Tasty, earned the singer commercial prominence and produced the hit single "Milkshake", her most well-known song. Kelis Was Here (2006), her fourth album, was the subject of further label disputes and she took a hiatus from music after its release, during which she trained at Le Cordon Bleu culinary school. She released the album Flesh Tone in 2010 and her sixth, Food, independently in 2014. Kelis has been recognised at the Brit Awards, Q Awards, NME Awards, and Grammy Awards ceremonies. Her musical output, both as a lead and featured artist, encompasses various genres - she has collaborated with R&B and hip hop acts including Busta Rhymes and Clipse, electronic and dance producers such as Calvin Harris, Timo Maas, and Richard X, pop and rock acts Enrique Iglesias and No Doubt, and indie/alternative musicians including Björk and Dave Sitek. She has sold six million records worldwide and has had particular success in the United Kingdom, where ten of her singles have peaked within the top ten of the UK Singles Chart.
  • 1998
    Age 18
    Kelis began recording her debut album, Kaleidoscope, in mid-1998 and was finished within a year.
    More Details Hide Details Produced by The Neptunes and released by Virgin Records in 1999, the album peaked at number 144 on the U.S. Billboard 200 chart and reached the top five on the Top Heatseekers chart.

During this time, Kelis featured on Ol' Dirty Bastard's U.S. top 40 single "Got Your Money". The album performed better in Europe, where "Caught out There" was a moderate hit and reached the top five on the UK Singles Chart. A second single, "Good Stuff" (featuring Terrar of Clipse), reached number 19; the third, "Get Along with You", was less successful, reaching number 51.
