UPDATE: Kelis confirmed her pregnancy to Us Weekly on Sept 1. “I’m pregnant! I’m so excited! It’s really amazing,” she gushed. So, what’s her biggest pregnancy craving? TOMATOES! “My neighbor grows tomatoes and leaves them on my doorstep and I’ll cut them up, use salt and pepper, and just eat them like that.”

Kelis performed amidst the scorching temperatures at the festival and reportedly told people off stage afterwards, “I need a fan…I’m hot and pregnant,” according to She also wore a pink see-through dress that accentuated what appears to be a baby bump.
