Keri Hilson has finally broken her silence and shut down those rumors that clogged the Internet saying that she was dissing Beyonce and Ciara in a leaked remix to “Turning Me On.” Click here to peep the song if you haven’t gotten a chance to already.
“I just want to tell Ciara it’s not about you,” the singer songwriter told Ciara in a live phone call. Hilson called Atlanta radio station V-103 to put the rumors to rest while Ciara and Polow Da Don were in the building. “People are just reading way too far into it. People take things and make it what they want it to be. It wasn’t taking shots at nobody.”
Ciara responded: “Cool… I guess everybody is here to listen to what Keri said and I take it for that. From my end, it’s always been nothing but love for you. I was very happy for you to get where you are.”
Hilson said: “I know that’s sincere. It is the same coming from me when I tell you that I’m proud of you. I’ve always meant that and I always do mean that. I’ve watched it from ground zero with you. I’m not jealous of anybody’s career. We are all like the same thing. Keyshia’s on my album. I’ve worked with Ciara many times. I’m a fan of Beyonce’s.”
Then who is the song about? “It’s anybody that ever tried to take me down and didn’t want to see me succeed,” explained Ms. Keri. “I’m not gonna call their names because I feel I’ve addressed it.”
