Kelis has been the moment since we met her in 1999 with her debut single “Caught Out There.”

The singer turns 42-years-old this year (and aging backwards might we add). Kelis proceeds to remind the girls exactly why her “milkshake brings all the boys to the yard.”

Kelis has transcended the music industry. After frustrations with her label, Kelis traded her time singing in the studio to cooking in the kitchen. The Harlem born singer enrolled in Le Cordon Bleu culinary school back in 2009, citing that it was a natural transition for her as your usual “foodie.”

“For me, food, like music, was always a big part of my upbringing. Being from New York, where some of the best chefs and restaurants are, and having travelled the world as an artist, I was able to experience cooking on a global scale,” Kelis shared with HuffPost Canada.

Though Kelis is all of these things, one of our favorites is her keen sense of style. She has always marched to the beat of her own drum, inspiring the looks of then and today. Kelis continues to give the girls a moment. Now, as the cool mom, chef and forever, a rockstar. We happily watch every moment as Kelis continues to share a small piece of her world with us through social media. From videos of her cooking to times on the farm, we enjoy bearing witness.

From the vibrant hair or getting off Y2K looks, Kelis is the moment! Enjoy this gallery of some of our favorite Kelis style moments that will live on forever.
