Kelis Selling LA Mansion And Buying A Farm To “Grow Everything She Eats”

You can always count on Kelis (My WCE) to be a trendsetter, whether its in hair, fashion, food, and now, farming.

The 38-year-old mother of two announced in Architectural Digest that she is selling her 1920s home in Glendale to buy a farm. She’s doing this in the hopes of taking part in sustainable agriculture and having better control of what her family, son Knight (8) and Shepherd(2), with husband and real estate agent Mike Mora, consume.

“Now that I’ve got these two boys, I want to control a little bit more how we eat,” she said. “We’re buying a farm, so that’s why we’re moving: so that we can grow everything and sustain everything that way.”

 The star has put her mansion on the market for $1.885 million. It’s 3,850 square feet and features five bedrooms, two fireplaces, a heated saltwater pool and, of course, a gorgeous kitchen broken in by the singer and Le Cordon Bleu-educated chef. She released a cookbook called My Life on a Plate in 2015 and has a line of sauces called Bounty & Full.

“We smoke meat, so we have a BBQ smoker,” she said. “We can do great grilled vegetables and steaks and sit outside with a glass of wine. It’s so nice.”

This desire to bring the healthiest of foods to the table through farming grew from a love of cooking. It developed during childhood but became a passion while she was studying at Le Corden Bleu in Paris.

“It was life changing,” she told Esquire in 2014. “Not because I learned to cook there, but because I was able to focus on something new. I was able to realize that I make music because I love it, not because I have to, and that there are other things that I do just as well, if not better, that bring me as much passion and joy and satisfaction.”

New Color…. Who Dis?!

So there’s a saying among many that when a woman changes her hair length, style, or color.. a big change in her life is near. A new relationship. Getting out of a bad relationship. A new job. A new school. There is something about being able to change the way you look that reinvigorates you and makes you happy.

It first took one year for me to color my locs and I have been using permanent color that entire time. The bleach scares me.  First it was a auburn, then red and now it is a tangerine blonde. I bleach once a year.
