Keri Hilson Dances Around The Word “Feminist”

“That word [‘feminist‘] has been tossed around a few times. I absolutely stand for women’s rights — I do. I also believe in empowerment and just owning and controlling your situation – be it your relationships, sexuality or confidence — and then not allowing anyone to take that. If any of that puts me into the feminist box, then I’m proudly there. But I’m not a Nazi with it. I just feel strongly that women lack the confidence that we need in this day and time. Everyone is seeking validation from expensive things like heels and handbags and hair weaves, or other women and other men. I just feel that I would like to see that over.”

— Singer/songwriter Keri Hilson, like a lot of other celebs, isn’t sure the “feminist” label is for her — even though she holds feminist beliefs. (Fun fact: Keri Hilson helped write one of my all-time favorite feminist anthems ever, Ciara’s “Like A Boy.”) I would never foist labels onto other people, but I sincerely wish more people in the public eye, especially women, just said, “Yeah, I am a feminist.” If we all just claim the label, then it’ll stop being a dirty word!

Keri Hilson Is The New Face Of Avon

Now that Keri Hilson is the new face of Avon, she can be known for something other than completely effing up the national anthem. And Avon can make some headlines for something positive, instead of its bribery investigation. Here’s what Keri had to say about her new beauty deal: “I’m really careful. I don’t want to be affiliated with too many brands. It’s got to make sense, and it makes sense [with Avon]. I love fragrance. I love beauty. I love to teach women that they should feel confident and feel good about themselves for themselves.” [The YBF] Keep reading »

Keri Hilson Screws Up The National Anthem

I might not sing “The Star-Spangled Banner” out loud at every occasion (my singing voice is atrocious), but at least I can mouth all the words. Too bad Keri Hilson wasn’t my classmate in fifth grade because she would know the entire song thanks to my drill sergeant-like teacher. Keri hit center court to sing the national anthem at an Atlanta Hawks basketball game and totally missed some of the lyrics. I’m not talking a few words here and there — she completely omitted whole phrases. This is definitely something she won’t live down until someone else effs up the anthem. Why bother if you’re not going to do it correctly! Keep reading »
