If you recall, the hit song took on a life of its own after its release in 2003 and, though no one truly knew what the lyrics meant, was featured in movies like “Mean Girls.”

The Grammy-nominated singer trained at France’s prestigious Le Cordon Bleu school, so she knows her stuff. Kelis’ second cookbook, “My Life on a Plate: Recipes from Around the World,” is out Sept. 28.
