During an interview with Hip Hollywood, Kelis shared how the album differs from her earlier work and why she named the disc FOOD.

“Dave Sitek produced it. It’s full band, it has horn sections and strings, orchestra, it’s very dramatic. It was a huge band, so people were there, and people are hungry. So we were eating, and recording, and singing, and eating some more and it was a lot of that. It wasn’t the plan but that’s just what it ended up being because that’s just who we are. It was really natural and it felt really good and it tasted really good too.”

Lupita Nyong’o, who's nominated for "Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role" for 12 Years A Slave, posed in a Valentino gown for INTERVIEW Magazine. Inside the mag's celebrity spotlight, Lupita reflects on her role and how she decided to focus on her dream of becoming an actor.

On making 12 Years A Slave:

"There was so much joy in the making of this film, despite the fact that it's about such a sad, traumatic experience. We all felt like we were part of something so real and so necessary. It was a joy to go on set every day and tell these real people's story. Doing this movie, I discovered that joy is not the negation of pain, but rather acknowledging the presence of pain and feeling happiness in spite of it."

On becoming an actor:

"When I was younger, I was almost too afraid to admit that I wanted to be an actor. I didn't know any successful actors in Kenya, so I felt like I could get away with going to college to study film more easily than I could with saying, ‘I want to be an actor.' That's what I did.

I knew that if I didn't try acting, that would be the one thing I would regret, so I decided to apply to acting schools. If I got in, I'd take it as a sign that I should pursue acting as a career. If I didn't get in, I was prepared to figure out some plan B. Luckily, I got in."

Lupita's next role will be the film Non-Stop with Liam Neeson (February 28th).
