Keri Hilson gets down and dirty in her recent video, but she wants you to believe that she could care less about what y’all think!
Keri insists that her risque behavior in the vid for the song, which by the way is originally entitled “The Way You F*ck Me,” is all her. She wants us all to believe that it’s no gimmick, she’s not trying to “create a buzz”… she’s just being her “freaky” self and making no apologies about it.
I don’t want to be held and caressed every night. Sometimes, I do want to be f*cked. You want it good sometimes. I’m talking about one man in the relationship, not being a slut or a whore or being paid to do things. It is racy but I can’t allow other people or the media to dictate what I can or can not do.
TLC didn’t do that, Josephine Baker didn’t do that, Madonna didn’t do that, Janet didn’t do that. We can’t approach art from a fear perspective. You have to be fearless and stand for what you believe in. I’m a freak, it’s no surprise. I’ve been a freak in other songs. I’ve been a freak in other videos and we should make no apologies.
I personally can’t recall nannn video where Keri was as nekkid as she is in this new one. And as for comparing herself to TLC, Josephine Baker and Madonna… well, she’s not there yet.
We talked about Keri at length the other night and the overall consensus was that change is good but she’s going way overboard and she hasn’t even found her lane yet.
She’s got ’em talking… I guess that’s all that matters.
