Quantcast Vegetarian StarKelis


Years ago it was the milkshakes.

Now it’s the chickpea fritters that bring all the boys (and the girls) to Kelis‘ yard.

The singer has a brand new cookbook out, My Life on a Plate: Recipes from Around the World, and it’s filled with recipes that reflect her heritage growing up as well as other favorite ethnic cuisines.

Kelis The Carnivore Father Strict Vegetarian

Kelis doesn’t win any popularity points among vegetarians and animal activists for a whole bunch of reasons, specifically, having no problems wearing fur on her head. But it’s interesting to know that this PETA hater who calls herself “the biggest carnivore” grew up with a father who preferred tofu to tilapia.

“I guess he wanted me to be too,” Kelis says in The Guardian about her strict vegetarian father, “but my grandmother gave me a chicken doner and it was all over – I became a meat-eater, full-on. Zero guilt. My last supper would be a charcuterie smorgasbord with every kind of meat, and sauces to dip them in. When I get through this album’s cycle I want to develop a Kelis sauce range. I’m a saucy saucier.”

Kelis MTV Video About Fur Hat And Where To Get Your Fake One

Written by Vegetarian Star on Saturday, May 15th, 2010 in Fashion, Female Singers, Fur, Videos.

Kelis sounds off on her PETA feud about that famous fur hat in this MTV video.

She says she thinks it was strange she got a letter from them, considering she’s worn “way more” fur than what she was wearing when the controversy ignited.

Kelis justifies her fashion choice with the fact the weather was “freezing” and she loves the hat.


Perfectly good excuses to buy something killed for the sake of vanity purposes.

Avoid the Kelis fur pas and opt for a faux fur hat instead.

Watch for Kelis’ excuses around minute 4:00.

Kelis Ready For Round Two Fur Fight With PETA

Kelis fired up the fur activists months ago when she replied to PETA’s criticism for wearing a fur hat.

Now she’s back and looking for more publicity she doesn’t deserve.

According to Contact Music, in an interview with NME, when asked if she was “trying to wind them up,” in her original response to them, the singer replied, “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.”

According to Mercy For Animals, about 26 million mink are killed each year for their fur.

Mink fur farms keep the animals in cages so small, the resulting stress causes neurotic behavior, such as pacing back and forth and they often develop stomach ulcers and enlarged adrenal glands–another consequence of stress.

Kelis doesn’t care about this?

Ah, why are we still even talking about her?

Everybody knows it’s Pamela Anderson‘s vegan milkshake that brings all the boys the yard.

Kelis Reply To PETA On Fur

Kelis was a recent target of the animal rights group, People For The Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) for wearing fur and the singer is taking on a Kid Rock attitude in her reply.

Kelis is proudly standing by her liking of fur, meat and more.

A few bits from the blog:

“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.”

She even takes a strike at PETA’s president, Ingrid Newkirk:

“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!”

Kelis doesn’t think faux fur will feel the same as the real dead animal:

“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.”

Has this chick even tried wearing a fake before (not counting the dozens of weaves on her head)?
