Keri Hilson: What Were You Thinking?

Keri Hilson is one of the newer stars to hit the scene that I enjoy. She may not have the best voice you have ever heard but something about her style and spirit impresses me. She seems…. Classy with a little bit of sass. She reminds me of myself. I came across this goodie and decided to share it. It is a video where Keri discusses the outfits she shined the most in and the ones where even she thought to herself… “What Were You Thinking?”

  1. She doesn’t do it for me. She’s in the R & B field yet, she doesn’t have the talent. Her personality is forced and how dare she be described as classy when she let kanye and lil wayne touch her booty. You serious?

  2. i love keri she is such a good songwriter and a mature female for some reason her style reminds me of michael jackson she really has his swag and she can dance shes like the female michael jackson people are gonna hate this comment but when iseen her on rising icons she lit it up keri hilson is the baddest female out riht now she slowly taking beyonces place she can dance and sing better she even writes better and i bet she can act better she really looks better than beyonce her album is fire letoya lucketts album is fire im wating for monica whitney jazmine sullivan,rihanna and faith evan,mary to come back out the reason why i dont like beyonce is because she has no personality her music is childish and wack she had one good solo album and she messed her career up when she came out with b-day and i am sasha fierce im done with her people say beyonce is the female michael jackson but really i think keri is gonna take that crown she got the pipes and the dance moves to go there just like ciara is the new janet jackson or aaliyah usher neyo and chris brown are the next mj’s too i love to speak my mind on her i really believe keri is a rising icon and she will sell big and have billions of fans

  3. Where are the REAL SINGERS?!! Are we just limited to Beyonce, Rihanna, Keri, Ciara, and Letoya? These so-called singers are WEAK compared to the likes of say, Patti, Stephanie, Anita, Aretha, Whitney, and Chaka! Is this all that we have to look forward too? Half the time you can’t tell one from the other. Sorry, just telling like it is.

  4. @TRESE

    Maybe u need to learn how to use a Period. Maybe u need to leard some basic knowledge and skills before u throw shade at someone.

    @Cassanova Brown

    Take Beyonce out that group because unlike some people, Beyonce can Sing…Really Sing, she has talent.

  5. All i have to say is mizzkeribaby…..i cnt wait to see her for the first time in october…i like her swag too,if its not riri its keri…..mónica is coming back 2…if you can hold a no te you can sing…im a huge neo-soul fan but that dsnt mean there is no place for the likes of cassie and janet jackson

  6. @TRESE
    PLEASE!

    HOW DARE YOU SAY THAT KERI CAN DANCE AND SING BETTER THAN BEYONCE?!

    Dancing and singing(at the same time) IS beyonce!

    chall i ain’t even gonna waste my time on you

    GOODBYE!

  7. keri do your thing girl,i like her swag too ,arent we supposed to support a brown sista,does this law only apply to one artist?like her or dislike she has a real personality love her smile….are people who dislike keri ugly?

  8. I love Keri ! She is one of few new artists that I recently like the most. I don’t know, maybe it’s the blend of a confident woman, smart women, beautiful woman plus her music which I like her’s much more than Rihanna’s.

    It’s your right to hate or like an artist. For me, the artist I like doesn’t have to be the best of all. I just feel that I like them so I like them.

  9. I think she’s a good songwriter and beauty, but her voice annoys me. I’ve yet to get into her music. Much like I’ve yet to get past the sound of Solange’s voice; though I know her album is good too.

  10. TRESE were talking about keri not THE FEMALE VERSION OF MJ WITCH just mybe beyonce now dont get me wrong iam not a huge crazy b fan but look at her work and i think if album sales was not down like they are then beyonce jayz and kanye west and usher will have big numbers for albums sales keri not so munch keri music is not good basiclly

  11. I don’t agree with but her opinion is different ya’ll get over it to the ones who didn’t like it. Whoa excuse some for feeling a little different right lmfao.

    Annnnyywwaaayyyssss … I’ve gotten into some of her music….I can’t watch her sing live those 9 times out of 10. Her writing skills, good her dancing skills I missed that because she don’t seem to dance well….well. I think yeah it’s her seeming classy with a sass and how you doin’ about her that I like.

  12. and people can eneyone please tell me who is even near MJ RIP like beyonce. If you can stop hating on beyonce and just see that shes very good . Another ?? Y everone saying IASF sucks but ever single she coming out with is good thats about 8 singles. half of the album i give the album out of a 100 a 90.

  13. @ Sexy

    I agree. I like most of Keri’s album, but I still don’t get the hype with her. Keri seems to be concieted too. Beyonce is the best. The word hate should be banned b/c I swear people don’t know what it means.

  14. Just because we like or dislike a performer doesn’t mean we are putting another one down. We have a right to like whomever we choose. I don’t like Beyonce, Ciara, Keyshia, or Rihanna’s singing, and IMO Keri sounds pretty much the same as they do. They all sound alike to me, same warbly nasal tone to their voice. We all know that in today’s music its about sex appeal rather than talent. Pretty gals, all three of them, but mediocre singers.

    Please, can we get some of the old school talent type singers back??!!??!

  15. @ DCCLASS

    Even though I like those girls, I couldn’t agree more. And what’s worse to me is they all had men to push them on. It’s just like that disgusting rapper Khia unlike her more famous competition she made it on her own, she didn’t need a man talking about how good she was in the sack or in the studio. She put herself on. What happened to the women.

  16. I like Ms Keri! I think she has a unique voice and she stays in her lane, she has fun and down to earth personality!

  17. The fact that people even attempt to compare Beyonce to the wonderful Michael Jackson makes me weep for the state of music.

    You can talk performance wise all day long, but content……..she is NOT on Michael’s level, folks. “Heal the World”, “They Don’t Really Care About Us”, “Gone Too Soon”, “Blood on the Dancefloor”, “Human Nature”, etc.

    Why even ‘go there’ and say she “almost is the female-MJ”. WHY? WHY? WHY? LOL.

    But everyone has an opinion don’t they.

    *smiles at you all*

    Everyone’s opinion can be released into the universe and be counted.

    So let me let mine out. Janet Jackson is the female Michael Jackson. *drops mic and leaves room*

    LOL

    *comes back and picks up mic*

    I’m thinking in terms of performance and in terms of musical content that touches THE WORLD on a social level, on a romantic level, on an edgy, sexy level, a UNIVERSAL LEVEL etc. Not the number of ‘runs’ or the vibrato or whatever.

    Beyonce is good; she is in her lane but she is NOT a female Michael Jackson.

    She’s more like a female Prince, (without the ability to play instruments). LOL. And that’s love I’m giving with this correlation; pure recognition of her talents. She’s as prolific as Prince in terms of her ability to record and produce.

    For me Michael touched SOULS from Royalty to the indigenous folk down on the Danube.

    *drops mic again and leaves this alone*

    LOL

    I love this site and I love the ladies here and the posts and the discussions. I usually try to stay neutral but sometimes I gotta step in.

    Peace and Blessings 😉

  18. @ kanyade
    I agree, well siad lol

    I like keri, she has a really nice swagger,style, and she can write songs.She’s also really pretty,but the singing not so much..

    And yes, Janet would be more like the female Michael Jackson…

  19. I Love Janet, Beyonce or even Keri but there is no one can compare to MJ now. The other one that would make an impact to people all over the globe at the same level as MJ did is Madonna.

  20. KERI HILSON IS COMPARED TO JANET AND MICHAEL JACKSON BECAUSE SHE CAN DANCE I USE TO DOUBT ER TALENTS UNTILL I SEEN A VIDEO OF HER IN THE UK DANCING DOING THE MOONWALK AND OTHER MICHAEL JACKSON DANCES SHE CAN DANCE AND WRITE HER ASS OFF VERY TALENTED SHE MIGHT NOT SELL OUT TOURS YET BUT SHES ON HER WAY TO THE TOP AND BEYONCE WILL SEE SOON I CANT GET ENOUGH OF KNOCK U DOWN WITH BEYONCES MUSIC U CHANGE THE CHANNEL SWEET DREAMS SUCK AND EGO IS NOTHING BUT CHILDISH LYRICS NADE FOR KIDS AND PEOPLE WITH LOW SELF ESTEEMS LIKE BEYONCE SHE HAS NO PERSONALITY AND SHES A BITER WHAT HAVE SHE DONE TO BECOME AN ICON NOTHING AT ALL ANYBODY CAN DRESS TRASH LIKE A SLUT AND GET ON STAGE SOME PEOPLE EVEN SING BETTER THAN HER THEY AINT SELLIN OUT FOR WHITE PEOPLE AND TO STAY IN THE PUBLIC EYE. SHE GOES ON TOUR 3 TIMES A YEAR JUST FOR MONEY NOT FOR THE FANS SHE CAN SING BUT SHE CANT SING EVERYTHING HER VOICE IS NOT THE BEST SHE NEEDS TO MAKE BETTER MUSIC AND KEEP IT REAL THATS WHY PEOPLE HATE HER SHE USES SASHA AS AN EXCUSE TO BE A WHORE ON STAGE WEARING A SWIMMING SUIT WITH A CAPE TO HONOR MICHAEL JACKSON ON THE BET AWARDS AND SHE DIDNT SING HIS SONG OR HER SONG THAT SONG AINT EVEN HERS ANYWAY SHE IS A FRAUD A FAKE I THINK SHES BIPOLAR WHO IS SASHA FORREAL IS THAT HER OTHER PERSONALITY WHY WOULD SHE CREATE A PERSON NAME SASHA AND SHES EVEN EMBARRASSED BY IT. THIS IS WHO U CALL THE NEXT ENTERTAINER OF ALL TIME PLEASE! SHE IS DOIN WHATEVER BRINGS MONEY SHES MONEY HUNGRY AND SHE BETTER WATCH OUT HER TIME IS ALMOST UP

  21. @TRESE- you are so right AND
    AYESHA- you get a standing ovation cause you ain’t say nothing but the truth. When I saw Ms. Keri dance I was shocked and happy. I want her to put Beyonce out of the game cause she’s a copy cat. Bey is fake. She doesn’t even wear her own line but want everybody else to pay $200 for a pair of jeans. She’s bipolar and nowhere near an icon. Beyonce is now Bye-ance. Good riddance, her sister looks better than her in her bald cut. She’s over and out in 5-4-3-2-1!

  22. @ AYESHA

    What are you talking about? Maybe I haven’t seen enough of her, but from what I seen, she can’t dance worth a damn. JJ and MJ came up with something new. Let’s be real, there is no one in the industry that can compare to MJ, if anyone comes close it’s Beyonce, and that’s just being real.

  23. Keri does blend it with the trend of R&B singers today-pretty, mediocre singers, decent dancers, and wear provocative clothing. But… i will give her this, she had a writing career b4 her singing and she’s not bad. Vocally decent. Dancing, she is a lil bit above average. She’s fluid, Better than B, nowhere near Ciara, but who is. She does seem 2 have personality, but still average.

  24. @Ayesha-it is so true that Sasha Fierce nonsense is just an excuse to show her whore side without tainting the “innocent”image she needs 2 keep. The leoard thing in every video was ridiculous. The Bet awards was outrageous on so many levels its sad. Singing a religious song,(i don’t care if its CAtholic, Muslim, Hindu) half naked is appalling. Then 2 commemorate MJ justs puts the icing. But the girl can sing. No, she aint Jennifer Hudson, but many aren’t, but her voice is crazy. She just needs depth.

  25. @ RUSERIOUS

    You couldn’t have said it better!!! Keri’s album is HOTTT btw and I love her style/attitude. She is doing her.

  26. I like her swag..I like her style..lil punk rock with R&B,lol…Miss Keri babyyyyyyy

  27. i think she a good songwriter but she needs to leave the singing to beyonce and dancing to ciara and b

  28. @Kanyade
    Your post was so right on there is nothing left to say.

    SMH @ some of these young folks in here that need to STAY IN SCHOOL!!!
    Seriously, I cringe when reading some of these posts…
