R&B singer Keri Hilson’s singing career started off looking very promising. Keri had major success as a song writer, so it was no surprise that she wanted to step out from behind the scenes and become a star in her own right. Keri was able to get buzz easily with the release of her hit single “Turnin Me On,” as she pushed a feisty image blended in with women empowerment anthems. Unfortunately for Keri, things would start to go sour with her once she released the remix to “Turnin Me On” and was accused of dissing fellow R&B singers Ciara and Beyonce on the track.
Although Keri denied that she was taking shots at either Beyonce or Ciara, she initially became a target of the Beyhive and C-Squad. Keri gets dragged on Twitter daily as a result of the beefs.
Keri focused on her music despite the rumored beefs, but stir criticism again when she refused to pick up and promote a magazine on the red carpet that featured Beyonce on the cover.
It also didn’t help that her image drastically changed and she became somewhat of a sex kitten over night.
With her alleged hostility towards Beyonce, alleged diss to Ciara, and over the top new sexualized image; the singer’s career began to decline and so did her album sales.
Perhaps Keri wants to move forward in her career and get past her rumored feuds because in a recent interview with Hip Hollywood, Keri claims she doesn’t have beef with anyone. She also says that the rumors of having beefs have been very hurtful to her as well.
“No I don’t have any beef with any female artist.
“I think it’s just interesting that people are so…we live in such a gullible world and anything that’s written, anything that’s posted, any picture that is interpreted one way is taken as truth, it’s like bible now. You can photoshop something put it out and everyone believes it.
“I’m human, it’s hurtful, it’s malicious. It’s not ok to just make up false things about someone and their personal life.”
