Months ago R&B singer Kelis announced that she would be making her return to the music scene and she even inked a new record deal recently in hopes to release her new album “Food” sometime this year.

Interestingly enough, she recently opened up about a scary racist attack that happened at a Spanish airport in 2011 that still very much haunts her to this day.

Contact Music reports via NME Magazine:

She said: ”That situation really brought me back to a reality that I have not been reminded of in a long time. No-one [ever] approaches me like I’m just some n***er – not that there’s any such thing – but some people have their own perceptions of who’s valuable and who isn’t.”

The 34-year-old singer claims she has ”no words” to describe the ”absolute rage” of the man, who verbally abused her while she was carrying her young son, Knight, and she was shocked nobody stepped in to defend her.

She explained: ”I was standing in a queue of British people and not one person said a single thing, which was unreal to me.This 6.4ft man is screaming at me, I have a child in my arms, and people were backing away. How is that okay?”
