Keri Hilson probably fits in the ‘everyone else’ category.
While she’s had a few hot tracks and definitely written some awesome lyrics, Hilson never really tapped into that “IT” factor that most superstars and icons are made of. For whatever reason, Keri’s performances have made made many a fan rush the stage and critics speculate that it all started with the Beyonce shade Keri threw early on.
Lately Hilson has been flying under the radar and in case you were wondering where the hell she’s been… well, apparently she’s been taking a much needed break.
Details below… (if you care):
Hilson explained to Atlanta Magazine that while many of her fans have been begging for her return to music since releasing ‘No Boys Allowed,’ she decided to shift her focus from recording music for the moment.
Keri says she needed a break away from worrying and working on her next track, the next release date and the next sales figures goal.
“I’m always sure something else will fall into my lap,” she adds insisting that taking a break will not kill her career.
She went to church with her parents, spent time with her four siblings and traveled to Haiti and the Ivory Coast to do charity work to benefit AIDS / HIV research.
