Kelis Talks ‘Food,’ Pharrell, And Her Style Evolution

Over the years, Kelis has brought all the boys to the yard with her song “Milkshake,” welcomed us to the 22nd century on her album Flesh Tone, and is now serving up a piping hot helping of soul with her album Food, her first in four years. The singer/saucier (girlfriend attended the Le Cordon Bleu culinary school) appears tonight (June 13) at Webster Hall, but if you didn’t score tickets (or just have some time to kill before the show), you’re in luck! We talked to Kelis about Food, that time Pharrell credited her with introducing him to high fashion, and more.

By the end of this video you’ll be inspired to listen to Food while whipping up something in the kitchen (or ordering something online–same diff, IMHO). If you’re going to Webster Hall tonight, have fun! If not, you can join us in watching this video and live performance videos on repeat. Perfect Friday, TBH.
