Kelis my friend....

I like you, I really do. But, in this recent interview Kelis states

"It’s funny, and I don’t know whether that’s arrogance, but I don’t feel like there is any competition, It depends on how you approach music making. For me to say that there was competition, well I would have to have approached making an album in a very different way because no-one can compete with my own life. No-one can compete with the experiences that made me write what I write."

IMO: Its arrogance, and an excuse. You are writing to be different and to sell music, but you see your not selling so here is your justification.

She continues,

"I don’t write music to please anybody. I don’t write music to get on the charts. It’s nice when that happens, that’s a great defining moment, but either way I’d have written the same thing. No-one can compete with the birth of my child, no-one can compete with my reverence for God. There’s absolutely not a single person in the world that can challenge that for me."

IMO: Nope, no one can compete with her life experiences, but selling out arenas, albums, and an overall fan base then yes Kelis you are competing and losing. I liked heer music best when she first came out and of course 'Milkshake'. I had to appreciate this song due to my own set of milkshakes.
