VIDEO: A Day In The Life Of Kelis...

AOL cameras trailed Kelis during the very-hectic day after her album release in NYC.

Spend more than five hours with Kelis and you'll delve into a personality that is polar opposite of what tabloid magazines and gossip websites have portrayed the 30-year-old Harlem native to be. Contrary to popular belief, she doesn't carry around a gold sack filled with her ex-husband Nas' riches. She's not hip-hop's wicked witch either, looking to cast an evil spell on God's Son. She's more of a worldly bitch, but in the "I'm-fierce-and-comfortable-in-my-own-skin-but-don't-cross-me" kind of way. - via AOL's The Boombox
