Kelis: The Transformation Queen

Kelis is releasing an album this summer and doing the usual press tour to spread the word. She even made time to stop by MTV and example/justify her fashion through the years. Some of the looks even she had to laugh at but still managed to make a great point, you will never have regrets if you wear what feels good at the time.
