A lot of people feel R&B singer Keri Hilson hurt her own career when she decided to diss Beyonce, but a VH1 writer seems to think Keri’s lackluster career is her own fault and it’s way more complicated than becoming the BeyHive’s favorite target.
Michael Arceneaux of VH1 writes:
Keri Hilson has a right to her opinion, but the pattern here is that whenever Keri Hilson tends to share her opinion, chaos ensues. She generates the kind of backlash that overshadows her music career. To that end, if I were working with Keri Hilson, I’d give her a few tips.
One, hand your Twitter password over to a publicist. You can keep Instagram, so long as you keep the captions light and bright and don’t publish any word memes.
Two, you better make sure every song you drop is fire. Like, if you can get Jesus on a track (she’s apparently rededicated her life to Christ), get him in the studio. You need all the help you can get.
Three, humble thyself. Listen, it’s awesome if you managed to still collect $100,000 to perform in an empty arena, but bragging about that defensively is not as cute as you think it is. It just highlights why no one came to see you.
Four, don’t ever say a bad thing about Beyoncé again. Learn from your mistakes, beloved. You should probably pull a Taylor Swift and apologize.
Good luck. You need it.
Do you agree?
