Singer Kelis's video for hit single MILKSHAKE was intended to be sexy without being too revealing, because the sultry singer doesn't think sex is a big deal.
The 24-year-old star wanted the promo for the innuendo-laden hit to be "clever" about sex, without having to rely on the sight of naked flesh to convey the message.
Kelis explains, "I think that's sexier in a lot of ways. Honestly, there's no such thing as shock value anymore.
"Now it's, like, 'Let's not talk about sex. Can we do that?' I don't mind talking about sex - I think it's great - but can we be clever, too?"
She says, "When they saw the video, people said, 'It's so provocative!" But compared to other videos out there, I don't think it is. I just wanted it to be fun."11/04/2004 10:48
