Kelis Won’t Bad Mouth Nas In Public

Published by Runteldat on Friday, July 9, 2010 at 11:50 am.

She might be willing to milk him like a weightlifting dairy farmer, but Kelis says she refuses to bash her ex-husband, Nas, because she doesn’t want their son to ever hear about it.

As she explained to the Associated Press:

“My kid is the center of my world. I don’t leave him ever. I take him with me everywhere. I was married. It didn’t work out. The most amazing thing came out of it. I am good with that.

(Knight) will never read anywhere that I said anything negative about his father. It doesn’t matter whether it’s true or not. Because at the end of the day he needs to know he did come from love.”

Well, she did recently say the person who disappointed her most was her ex-husband but I imagine that will be a given to the kid considering his parents are divorced.

Overall, that’s a very mature stance from Kelis. Baby mothers, daddies, celebrities, and those willing to sell your soul and its kidney’s in order to be one, live and learn.

In other Kelis news, she’s said to be in talks for her own reality show. Previously, she and Nas were to do a show chronicling their relationship. Yes, there are way too many reality shows. Yes, I’ll be checking out hers anyway.

Kelis Says She Won’t Be Stage Mom with Knight

Published by Runteldat on Thursday, May 27, 2010 at 11:50 am.

kelis3

If it were up to Kelis, her son with Nas, Knight, would grow up to be an architect or a marine biologist.

She told Popjustice:

“I look at him now and there’s no way you can deny he’s musically inclined. I don’t think he can help it! My mom’s someone who helps you channel what you’re naturally best at and I don’t think this is what she would have chosen for me but she’s always been so supporting that I think I couldn’t help but be comfortable in my own skin as a result.

So with him is it my ideal choice? No, I would much rather he was a marine biologist or an architect but if he’s naturally good at this I would be doing him a disservice not to help him.”

Isn’t he like less than a year old? How does she know if he’s musically inclined or not? Maybe his cries have a certain melody or rhythm to him.

And I suppose dealing with dolphins and killer whales sounds a lot safer than the sharks in the music industry.

Kelis noted that she won’t be pushing Knight at the forefront the way other parents do:

“I’m not going to be a stage mom, pushing him in front of the camera! As a parent it’s your job to guide them in the right direction so they become the kind of people they want to be.  It has to be not because he wants to be a pop star but, in a way, because he can’t do anything else. Because music is all he hears. Do you know what I mean?”

Kelis On Messing With PETA, Making Enough

Published by Runteldat on Monday, May 10, 2010 at 11:50 am.

kelis2

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.

Kelis said:

“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.”

Kelis Isn’t Done Taking Nas to the Bank Yet

Published by Dior Noir on Tuesday, April 13, 2010 at 3:00 pm.

nas-kelis

Remember when Kelis used to make money by actually making music, not taking Nas for all he’s worth? Yeah me either but if she keeps taking Esco to court at this rate she’ll never have to work again.

Kelis filed papers when Nas got behind on the $55K/month payments he was ordered to fork over during their divorce settlement and the feuding couple went back to court on Monday. Nas has said that he’s broke (he owes over $3mil in back taxes) but the judge showed no mercy on his pockets.

According to documents filed in L.A. County Superior Court, uncovered by TMZ, “Nas had to immediately fork over $47,249.42 in back child support and $40,454 in back spousal support. The judge also ordered Nas to pay $10,000/month in spousal support until he pays off the $299,015.50 he owes Kelis. Nas also has to pay 90% of Kelis’ legal fees in the amount of $155,787.28. Lastly, Nas has to pay $48,549.83 to cover Kelis’ accounting expenses.”

Damn. Cheaper to keep her for sure.

Kelis And Her New Man

Published by Runteldat on Wednesday, March 31, 2010 at 12:00 am.

kelis1

It seems that Kelis has found herself another man.

After Kelis squashed rumors that she and Nas could reunite, the topic of Kelis’ love life shifted to how she was dating now.

The folks over at Honeymag.com have the scoop and it’s said that Kelis is now passing the time with an NFL football player.

Via Honeymag:

Our Honeybees are buzzing that the former Mrs. Jones is bunned up with Chicago Bears footballer, Wale Ogunleye. According to our sources, the romance has been hot and heavy for almost two months – at least. The duo were spotted as far back as Super Bowl weekend, when they were seen stepping out of a Miami movie theater together hand in hand.  Just this past weekend, they were seen at the Winter Music Conference, also in Miami. Ogunleye was in attendance as Kelis performed cuts from her upcoming album at the Belvedere Music  Lounge. Later that night sources spotted them canoodling in VIP at Club LIV.  Kelis is not the first celeb Ogunleye has tackled off the field. The baller was in a four-year relationship with actress  Sanaa Lathan. They ended things last year. For now, his new romance with Kelis is being kept quiet right now, but look for the two to debut their romance shortly.

Actually, these two might not be keeping too quite about their relationship. Necole Bitchie says she forgot about this email she received months ago until recently.

It read:

A few weeks ago on Friday November 12th, Kelis was here in Chicago with NFL baller Adewale Ogunleye, she solicited a co-worker of mine from Scores stripclub to participate in a threesome with her and Wale.

Isn’t that special?

Kelis Flips Out on Twitter

Published by Runteldat on Wednesday, March 17, 2010 at 11:50 am.

kelis

Judging from the way her lawyer strong arms people, I imagine you don’t want to ever get on Kelis’ bad side.

With that said, best of luck to the airline workers who lost her luggage.

The now Will.I.Am-backed artist took to Twitter to rant about her misplaced belongings and made it abundantly clear that she was vexed.

She wrote:

“I am at airport, sans luggage, not happy. How is it that they ‘lose’ bags? Does that make any sense? Let me answer, no it absolutely does NOT.

 

Oh did I mention I have a 9am call time, which would be fine if I wasn’t still here staring at this empty baggage conveyor belt. Not happy. The good news is, however that I don’t trust these airport scoundrels, so all the glorious treats I had made for video are nicely packed in my carry-on. Still not happy about this.

 

And it’s not just the lost (sic) of my stuff that p**ses me off. It’s the person behind the counter’s indignant attitude as though I’m the horse’s a** for wanting my stuff back. Or excuse me naively, blindly optimistically expecting my trunk filled with treasures to come barreling down. That is not the case here. I am too tired to even weep over the [louboutin], westwoods, etc etc that will not be going home with me this morning. Ugh, not happy.”

Kelis was en route to a video shoot for her new single, “Acapella.”

Nas Wants His Kelis Tattoo Removed

Published by Runteldat on Friday, February 5, 2010 at 10:00 am.

nas-kelistat

You couldn’t pay me to put somebody else’s name let alone their image on my body.

I don’t care how wonderful they are and how great it is, I’d rather stamp “Love that chicken from Popeye’s” on my body than anyone’s likeness. At least with the chicken I know it will always be there.

It’s a lesson Nas is now learning as word says he’s about ready to burn off that picture of a bare breasted Kelis off his forearm.

Indeed, according to MTO Mr. Jones will be flying in and out of LA to begin a series of laser treatments to remove his green and formally permanent ode to his now ex-wife.

Unless JD works his magic with Damita Jo, I’m sure we’ll be hearing about him removing his Mother Teresa meets Janet Jackson tat off in due time, too.

Kelis, WTH Are You Wearing!? Again!

Published by Dior Noir on Tuesday, February 2, 2010 at 3:00 pm.

Kelis+mixes+greying+mullet+gold+nose+chains+X5KRaOBg3-Jl

Kelis revived her old lesbian rumors when she was spotted kicking it with her “BFF” Dania Ramirez at Voyager night club in Hollywood last weekend but I’m less interested in who she’s asking to “Blindfold Me” in the bedroom…all I want to know is why would any “friend” of hers ever let her step out the house like that!?

The grandma-gray colored mullet? That Bollywood nose ring? The stuffy button up/broach combo to the club?  She did say if Nas isn’t paying for an expense, it’s not getting paid, so is being broke what’s causing her recent fashion crisis?

She channeled the Statue of Liberty and added a crown to the gray mullet at the Sundance Film Festival:

kelis-sundance-4

Wore the same ‘do and scared the world when she showed up in this freakish Avatar ensemble–complete with fake blonde lower eyelashes, a spandex catsuit and and Alexander McQueen heels– at last week’s Data Awards:

1264796155_kelis-290

And got PETA’s panties in a bunch when she wore this Cruella DeVille look last month (I would almost rather see her reach for this hat again to cover up her latest hairstyle! Almost.):

kelis-fur-1

Don’t get me wrong, I’ve always loved Kelis’ eclectic style. She’s was setting trends way back when Rihanna and Lady Gaga where just regular looking girls-next-door named Robyn and Stefani. Lately though….notsomuch.  Maybe she’s too busy being a mom to care about what she looks like  (or what we think about it!) and that’s fair but I really miss the fly, Bossy Kelis of the past!

What do you think of Kelis’ recent style choices?

Kelis Is Still Not Thinking About PETA

Published by Runteldat on Monday, January 25, 2010 at 12:00 am.

kelis-2

Kelis basically sent a message to PETA recently that could be best described by rising your middle finger and waving it like it’s about to fall off.

But, just in case the fur-fighting advocates didn’t get the message the first time, she’s obviously now sending a message.

While in Utah for the Sundance Film Festival, Kelis rocked Rocky, Bulwinkle, Alvin, Simon, and Theodore:

kelis-1

kelis-3

And as you can see she also channeled a lost Viking, though I don’t know if that’s shade to PETA or Xena: Warrior Princess.

Kelis Gets Bossy With PETA

Published by Dior Noir on Friday, January 15, 2010 at 3:00 pm.

kelisfur

We already know PETA goes in on celebrities who wear fur and Kelis is one of the latest entertainers who has ruffled their feathers. When pictures surfaced of the singer leaving her album release party in London in the furry look above, PETA wrote her a finger wagging letter complaining about her Cruella de Vil-esque choices.

Not one to be stepped to, Kelis bit back dismissing the PETA President Ingrid Newkirk as “nuts” and telling them exactly where they can shove their red paint cans. Check the scathing  open letter Kelis posted on her MySpace page:

“Good morning all!

Ok, so you’re gonna love this. The other day I got a personalized letter from PETA! Lol so after some thought I’ve decided to write one back. Goes a little something like this:

There is no humane way to kill anything, let me start there. It’s unfortunate but it’s part of life. With that being said, I would eat pterodactyl if you found some and you told me it was meaty and delicious. And after doing a very minimal amount of research……. I found out that the founder Ingrid Newkirk is completely batty. I had a feeling but she far exceeded my expectations. I mean certifiably insane! Lol this chicks will is nuts, google it – it’s a riot! Beyond the fact that I think she’s a diabetic, which means she needs insulin, which is taken from lab pigs (I know this because my sister happens to be in veterinary school), which would be completely hypocritical. It’s like don’t abuse animals unless it can help me.

I feel very strongly about a lot of things such as the sweatshops that spin cotton and the blood on their hands. Btw it’s not just the look of fur. It’s warm as hell and feels glorious, ever rubbed faux fur on your body? Nothing luxurious about that. Then the letter proceeded to name artist and designers who don’t wear real fur. Great! More for me! I don’t judge them, don’t judge me.

If I started wearing endangered animals like polar bear or orangutan then talk to me. (Which btw for the record I would not – I do believe in the preservation of endangered species) But the minks and chinchilla that quite honestly are rodents and if weren’t in the form of a coat I would demand they be put to death anyway are not an issue to me.

The death of high fashion. Ugh.

I eat meat, and in fact my mouth salivates as I type the word meat! And the paint throwing that’s just ridiculous! What if I was hurling Loubitons and Pierre Hardy’s at every sad poorly dressed person on the street? As right as I may be it’s just fanatical and crazy. And people have the right to feel as they please. What about art? Survival of the fittest. Natural selection? No let’s just let all the rodents run free and over take our cities. Oh wait they have, NY and LA in particular are infested! Why don’t u save them all from scavenging on the streets and ruining my evening strolls, take them home. Make them pets! Get off my back! Pun intended!

Underpaid minorities picking your vegetables, now that’s fine for you right? Please, fight for their rights. How about the poverty in the communities of brown people around the world. She had the nerve to say (and I quote) “get over it” talking of the issue of black people and slavery in this country verses cows being slaughtered. Is she kidding me? Lol yes she must be. Actually, she’s lucky most black people have real issues to worry about in the U.S and don’t give a crap what her delusional privileged opinions are. But she should try saying that again just for kicks n giggles on the corner of Adam Clayton Powell Blvd in Harlem n see how well people “get over it” lol.

If u want to preach do it about something worthwhile don’t waste my time trying to save the dang chipmunk.

Find a worthwhile cause like the women being maimed in these Middle Eastern countries. Or female circumcision. Or women’s rights here in America, we still get paid less for doing the same jobs as men. Quite honestly if you hate the world so much go live in the forest where no one else has to hear you complain about the perfectly good food chain the good Lord created. Everyone has the right to an opinion, and that’s mine on that! xoxo”

Dismissed!

Meanwhile Kelis just asked a judge to hold Nas in contempt of court because apparently he has refused to give her chinchilla and mink money child and spousal support since December 1 and owes her $56,911.50.
