Your ex-husband, the rapper Nas, put your wedding dress on his album cover. Why did he still have the dress?
It’s not even the dress. The joke behind that is that it’s the slip to the petticoat to my dress. I think when I moved out I just left it. That’s all he had, poor thing.
Did you know that was coming?
He gave me a heads-up like two days before it was released.
Do you know why?
All kinds of ideas of why, but I don’t really care.
But it brought up a bunch of stuff you were probably hoping was in the past.
Maybe for others, but not for me. I don’t really listen to his music anyway.

Kelis’ levels of “don’t come for me unless I send for you” are truly aspirational. 2014 is shaping up to be “Black Women: The Year of The Clapback” and I love it. Go on and read the rest of this interview while streaming Kelis’ new album “Food” - and when you’re done revisit some Kelis Klassics.- Alesia
