Why are all the staff writers at Willamette Week men? Has this always been the case?? Clearly there are woman there and they do have a presence in the publication but that is not a enough I want to see a female name with bold letters under the staff writers section of my paper (unless taylor clark is woman??)

Kelis is clearly a woman with a voice. I am a bit out of it because I have only recently heard of her. I watched Kelis perform Milkshake on Last Call with Carson Daly ?? one morning while dealing with insomnia. Milksake is smokinghot! I am not the first to say it and I am certianly won't be the last to say it....this single is mmm-mmm-good.
Confused about what "milkshake" is? Kelis explains it to the Associated Press:
What exactly is a milkshake?

Kelis: A milkshake is the thing that makes women special. It's what gives us our confidence and what makes us exciting.

Your CD is pretty suggestive. How much should women use their sexuality?

Kelis: There's a very fine line you have to walk, but men do it all the time, and cross the line, and it's totally acceptable. Women are entitled to use their gifts -- I'm not going to look this good in 30 years, so I may as well work with what I got while I still got it. But there is a fine line between being raunchy and being sexy.

You had huge success overseas. Are you hoping this CD will bring you the same kind of success in the states?

Kelis: I don't think about it, honestly. I just do the work. I sing the songs and hope people like it but I don't worry too much if I'm going to be crazy popular or anything.

Where would you like to be in five years?

Kelis: Having babies. Writing movies. Directing, doing some great tour. I'm not really sure. Wherever the road takes me.

You have some big names on your album. How do you know people like The Neptunes and Andre 3000?

Kelis: It's like high school. Everyone knows everyone in music, people gossip all the time and everyone is in your business. It's like high school -- with better outfits and longer days.
