Kelis Dismisses Reality Show With Nas
After they were spotted dining at New York's Buddakan with a camera crew in tow, Page Six reported the hip-hop couple would follow in Nick and Jessica's footsteps with their own show on MTV. However, Mrs. Jones said despite her racy song lyrics, she's not quite ready to get it on in public.
"With all the events we do, I like to see my life," Kelis said in a visit to AOL Music's New York studios Wednesday. "I drive Nas crazy 'cause it's usually me with the camera, which he is totally over. So, I just got this guy to help us document our life. Whether we choose to do something with it or not is still up in the air. Right now, I really just wanna show my kids how fly Mommy was when she was in her twenties."
That "flyness" included one pastime in particular. "I used to smoke a lot of weed," she said. "I don't anymore, but I forgot about like nine years of my life. I feel like that era was just a haze. I always knew I was gonna be a weed smoker; I did not think drugs were bad."
Kelis told us the missing years in question were ages 14 to 22, or maybe 23. She's not quite sure. "I can't remember the exact year I stopped, but I remember stopping. I wasn't even getting high anymore, it was more of a habitual thing. That's how I knew it was time to stop. It was like 'I'm bored. Let's have a sober period, that could be fun," she joked.
