Kelis took to social media on Monday (Feb. 27) to recount how her family ski trip to Big Bear took a scary turn.
“My plan was to take the kids to the snow , but we almost fell off a cliff!” the singer captioned the Instagram Reel. “So make the best of what ya got , n always be prepared lol.”
In the clip, Kelis explains, “So here’s the thing: my truck got stuck, it’s, like, hanging off the cliff…We’ve been outside for a while. But we had on our snowboarding gear, so God is good. And I figure, if you’re gonna be in this situation, you should at least look your best.”
While a tow truck attempted to get the singer’s truck safely off the dark and windy mountainside, she proceeded to show off her ski bunny fashion, complete with fluffy layers of mint, pink and white, a head lamp (“thank God because it’s pitch black out here”), a gator-skin purse and reflective silver boots. “You know, things could be worse,” she quips with a laugh. “This is ridiculous. Rescue fashion!”
Earlier this month, Kelis stirred up an amusing rewrite of “Milkshake” as part of Uber One’s Super Bowl commercial also starring Diddy, Montell Jordan, Donna Lewis, Ylvis and Haddaway.
Speaking of “Milkshake,” the song was involved in drama last year after Kelis accused Beyoncé of including an interpolation of the 2003 top 10 hit in her Renaissance album cut “Energy” without giving her a heads up. (Although Queen Bey did get the appropriate permission to use the track from its writers, The Neptunes’ Pharrell Williams and Chad Hugo, she later cut the interpolation entirely.)
