Kelis On Messing With PETA, Making EnoughPublished by Runteldat on Monday, May 10, 2010 at 11:50 am.
Kelis certainly has a way with words – particularly how to use them to make people roll their eyes, grit their teeth, and call their lawyers.
In a recent interview the former Mrs. Nasir Jones just laid another verbal smackdown on her ex by noting just how comfortable financially she is.
“I’ve never been someone that everyone understood or accepted, and that’s always been fine with me. But the catch 22 is that I have a really good life. I make good money, I travel the world, just enough to maintain a sense of normality. I’ve sold just enough records to not have to get a regular job but just under the amount where I become public property, like I can be sort of politically incorrect and sort of get away with it.”
Forgive me, but I’m confused. If she’s doing that well then why is she and her lawyer bleeding Nas dry?
And who knew selling three albums in Belgium and seven in Tokyo could set you up so nicely?
In any event, Kelis spoke to British magazine NME about purposely riling up PETA. When asked if she was “trying to wind them up” with her letter to the organization, she responded with:
“Well yeah! I mean, firstly, it’s just far too easy to p**s them off. I mean, give me a break. Get your panties out of a bunch, just relax. I mean seriously? I believe in live and let live, but I feel there are far more important issues with natural disasters and poverty and plague. I’m sorry if a mink is last on my list.”
