Ever since Keri Hilson sang a verse on her 2009 “Turning Me On” remix that suggested she didn’t take to female singer’s claiming the “writes” to songs she’s written and her defiance in answering questions related to Beyonce, people have given her flack for hating the fellow singer. In a recent interview the singer is finally addressing rumors she has an ongoing feud with the singer.
“No, I don’t have a beef with any female artist, says Hilson. I think it’s just interesting that we live in such a gullible world. Anything that’s written, anything that is posted, and a picture that is interpreted one way, is truth. It’s like bible now. You can Photoshop something, put it out and everyone believes it. I’m human and it is hurtful. It’s not okay to make up something about someone in their personal lives especially. Professionally, fine. Scrutinize me all you want, I know I can’t please everyone. But, personally let’s just leave it alone, it’s going too far.”
To refresh your memory here’s the infamous verse Keri’s been nearly crucified for.
“She can sing, but need to move it ‘to the (left)’ / She need to go have some babies / She needs to sit down, she fadin’… / Go ‘head and tell them folks how long I been writing your songs / I been puttin you on, just check the credits ho.”
Bey herself has been criticized for taking credits for songs she hasn’t written. Do you all think this was a diss towards Bey?
