Keri Hilson has just dished on Keri Hilson’s upcoming record to Rap-Up, due out later this year.
In the interview, Keri Hilson declares 2013 to be “the year that, you know, I feel good” and talks about Keri Hilson’s time off last year, presumably ‘just doing Keri Hilson.’ Since then, Keri Hilson has been in the studio with Keri Hilson collaborators Polow da Don and Timbaland, who also executive produced Keri Hilson’s last two albums. Keri Hilson notes that “songs and ideas” have been “gushing out of” Keri Hilson, which means Keri Hilson might want to seek medical attention.
In September of 2010, the world (well, the UK) watched as a jittery Worcestershire-born girl named Cher Lloyd strolled across the stage–suited in a a fitted black jacket and shredded white jeans–to audition for the X Factor. After a brief grilling by the judges regarding her name and age (“You look more!” Louis Walsh exclaimed after learning she was only 16 years old), Lloyd announced she’d be performing (Keri Hilson‘s cover of) Soulja Boy‘s “Turn My Swag On.”
And then she opened her mouth to sing.
Another day, another drama…
In helping to celebrate Blackout Purchase Week (have you entered the MuuMuse giveaway yet?), MuuMuse is proud to present “Blackout Once Again: A Look Back at Britney Spears’ Greatest Album,” an incredibly comprehensive, in-depth examination of Britney‘s fifth studio album, written by Vertigo Shtick‘s David Salter.
If there’s anything to be said about Blackout, it’s featured here in this extraordinary piece. A must read, Muusers!

On the train ride home today, somewhere between pondering the solution to global poverty and attempting to shake off a recurring day terror involving a toaster oven and The Real Housewives of New York‘s Ramona Singer (I don’t feel emotionally prepared to discuss it yet), I said to myself: “Self, Keri Hilson‘s “Gimme What I Want” is a very good song. Like, it’s such a good song. People really need to know that. Shouldn’t someone do something about this?”
Kelly Hilson – “Gimme What I Want”
Accordingly, I took action.
I now present a PowerPoint presentation of the various reasons in which Miss Keri Baby’s “Gimme What I Want”–track 10 off of No Boys Allowed, her critically “meh” second studio album (well I liked it, anyway)–is amazing.
And as always: You’re welcome.
Cat Deeley may not yet be on the shortlist to be considered for sainthood, but after an unbelievably inspired moment while hosting So You Think You Can Dance last Thursday night, the Pope may have just jumped up from his throne at the Vatican and shouted “SHUT THE FUCK UP: ADD DIS BITCH’S NAME TO THE LIST.”
You see, Keri Hilson was on the show Thursday to
steal Gaga‘s “The Edge of Glory” video premiere shine perform/lip-synch to her latest No Boys Allowed smash and MuuMuse Approved favorite, “Lose Control.”
Miss Keri Baby provided a very strong, sexy performance that involved a lot of (a) shaking (b) winding and (c) rolling, except for the part where she accidentally ate her earrings for like 20 minutes. (See the 0:47 mark.)
But the true genius of Hilson’s performance began after the song concluded, as Cat Deeley grinned into the camera (at the 3:30 mark) and shouted: “Ladies and gents, let’s hear it for her. It’s Kelly Hilson, everybody!”
KELLY MOTHER FUCKING HILSON.
“Kelly Hilson” then began to trend worldwide on Twitter only seconds later, where it would remain for much of the night.
Now I’m not an expert on religious phenomena, but if “Kelly Hilson” isn’t the greatest miracle bestowed upon the world since air, Oreos and Britney Spears, I don’t actually know what is.
KELLY HILSON: YOUR FAVES COULD NEVER (BECAUSE THEY DON’T ACTUALLY KNOW WHO THAT PERSON IS).
