Kelis: "Funnily enough I don't actually drink milkshakes"

Turns out Kelis actually hates milkshakes

Maybe she's lactose intolerant?

"Milkshake" may have been a hit single for Kelis, but it turns out she's not exactly a fan of the drink. 

The singer-songwriter released the track as the lead single off her third album, Tasty. It went on to become a Top Ten single all over the world, including the US and the UK, and was nominated for a Grammy Award in 2004. (It also soundtracked the "I'm not a regular mom, I'm a cool mom" scene in Mean Girls, which pretty much cements it in pop culture history.)

Kelis previously revealed that she was using milkshakes as a metaphor for "something that makes women special", but you'd think she actually – you know, liked milkshakes a little bit.

''Funnily enough I don't actually drink milkshakes," the singer-songwriter told the Daily Mirror

Kelis' love of food is well-documented – after her 2006 record Kelis Was Here, she took four years off and trained to become saucier at Le Cordon Bleu cookery school.

''I would love to open a restaurant in the near future," she said. "My current sauce line Feast will be coming out this winter. A lot of various food related goals in the upcoming year. I'm excited to see what's to come!''

In case you're into condiments cooked up by beloved R&B dance divas (who isn't), Kelis-created Feast sauces including jerk sauce, wild cherry barbecue and pineapple saffron.

Just don't expect her to do a milkshake line anytime soon.
