A few weeks ago, while browsing through a deli in her West Harlem neighborhood, singer Kelis Rogers tasted the perils of sudden fame. "There were these two guys just standing there, staring at me," she recalls. "One of them finally says, 'Are you the girl that has that song?' I'm like, 'Yeah, what's up?' The other guy looks at me with such disgust, and he says, 'Why are you so angry?' I'm like, 'Well, you sound a little bitter, actually. Why are you taking the song so personally?'
