Kelis Cooks Backstage

Jul 16, 10 Kelis Cooks Backstage

Kelis fired up her own barbeque in her dressing room to celebrate the 4th July on Sunday.

The R&B star always celebrates American Independence Day with an outdoor feast, and even though she was in the UK t for the annual holiday she decided she was going to have a cook-up anyway.

Kelis – who was performing in Weston-Super-Mare, England, at the T4 On The Beach concert, hosted by British TV station Channel 4 - rushed out and bought some portable barbeques and began cooking a host of calorific treats, including rib eye steaks, salmon, corn on the cobs, hamburgers and hot dogs.

A source said: “Kelis was cooking up a storm backstage. The smell of the steaks on the BBQ was mouth watering. Perhaps Channel 4 should give her a cooking show of her own!”

A host of other artists and backstage passers-by joined Kelis – whose new single ’4th Of July (Fireworks)’ came out 5th July – for the food until concerned fire wardens put a halt to the impromptu barbeque after seeing the smoke.

Other acts to perform at T4 On The Beach included Dizee Rascal and Alexandra Burke.
