Kelis"s new album is titled Food, but aside from a song titled "Jerk Ribs," its themes lean more adult film than epicurean.
All the same, food is clearly on her brain: The Cordon Bleu grad has a new line of signature sauces and is known in the music biz for her dinner parties.
Some pro tips from Kelis from the April GQ:
"I love Belgian beer. I am also a big wine drinker. I like to be well stocked."
"Never do paper plates. Never. Unless it"s a barbecue. I am not one of those people with frickin" dust collecting on my crystal."
"You want to create an atmosphere but still have it be something people can talk over—it"s not a frickin" rave, it"s my living room. Massive Attack"s Mezzanine is nice to start; then maybe you go to Roberta Flack"s Chapter Two."
