Kelis may have split from Nas and signed to a new record label in 2009, but the singer is continuing to make waves as she kicks off the New Year with a written shot fired at PETA. In a post on her MySpace blog, Kelis blasts the animal rights organization, which wrote a “personalized letter” criticizing her choice of clothing after seeing a photograph that turned up earlier this week of her wearing a noticeable amount of fur to an event.
As a result, Kelis proudly boasted her love of meat (“I eat meat, and in fact my mouth salivates as I type the word meat!”) while labeling PETA President Ingrid Newkirk as "completely batty" after “doing a very minimal amount of research.”
“I had a feeling but she far exceeded my expectations,” Kelis wrote. “I mean certifiably insane! Lol this chicks will is nuts, google it – it’s a riot!
Although she said she believes in the preservation of endangered species, the singer admitted that chinchilla and mink are the exception as she highlighted the upside to sporting fur.
“…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,” said Kelis. "Quite honestly [chinchilla and mink] are rodents, and if it weren't in the form of a coat, I would demand they be put to death anyway."
As she wrapped up her letter, Kelis suggested that PETA focus its energy on more worthwhile causes such as “women being maimed in these Middle Eastern countries. Or female circumcision. Or women's rights here in America, we still get paid less for doing the same jobs as men.”
“If u want to preach do it about something worthwhile don't waste my time trying to save the dang chipmunk,” she said.
