Kelis Almost Quit Music For... Food?
The singer admits she fell in love with cooking
Kelishas recently revealed that she almost turned her back on music to become a chef after she signed up for cookery lessons.
The star took a break between releasing her 2006 album, Kelis Was Here and going in the studio to start work on her upcoming album, Flesh Tone.
In that break she enrolled at a culinary school and admits she was close to quitting music for good after falling in love with food.
She told The Daily Record: "I took four years off to have a little life between this album and my last album. I studied to be a chef as a side thing, a little hobby that I enjoyed doing, but I ended up falling madly in love with the food and the lifestyle.
"I needed a break and going to culinary school turned a lightbulb on that I didn't have to make music. The people in the music business forget that there is an entire world of people out there who do not care what we do, we are not recreating the wheel."
