Kelis Gets 'Pawed' For Fleshtones, Leaves PETA ConfusedMonday, May 17, 2010
In the photo pictured above, Kelis appears as half dog/half woman, perhaps embracing change, PETA or simply those who have called her a B**tch in years past. Whatever it is, the look is not something you see everyday.
Earlier this year, Kelis penned an open letter to PETA, addressing their concerns over her decision to wear fur on a regular basis.
"If I started wearing endangered animals then talk to me. But minks and chinchillas are rodents," she wrote. "Fur is warm as hell and feels glorious. ... 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 ... go live in the forest where no one else has to hear you complain about the perfectly good food chain the good Lord created."
In related news, Kelis' "Fleshtones" album is in stores today (in the UK). The album is slated for release in the United States July 6.
