Keri Hilson Gets Criticized After Performing On A Small Stage At A Black Pride Event In Washington D.C

Shade is being thrown at Keri Hilson after her recent performance surfaces the internet. 

On Monday (May 30) Keri Hilson performed at the Hard Rock Cafe in Washington D.C. for a Black pride event. Keri Hilson, 39, took the stage performing her top hits “Pretty Girl Rock,” “Knock You Down,” and “Turnin’ Me On.”

A video of Keri Hilson performing “Turnin Me On,” during the event goes viral on twitter as fans criticized the stage Keri performed on:

Fans blame the Grammy-nominated singers “career downfall” on the alleged shade she threw at Beyonce and Ciara over a decade ago, when she did a remix to her single “Turnin’ Me On” and said :

“Your vision cloudy if you think that you da best. You can dance, she can sing, but need to move to the left… She need to go have some babies, she need to sit down, she fake, them other chicken aint even with talking bout.”

After four years of the release of “Turnin Me On,” some Beyonce fans continued to troll and Keri pleaded to the BeyHive on twitter: 

“It’s TOO Much!! Please! Is everything I tweet gonna be “intentionally misinterpreted” as a statement about someone/drama I know nothing about?”

Keri continued:

“You have no idea what your hateful words could do to someone’s spirit. Years of verbal abuse from strangers all day long. Enough is enough! I’m here for MY FANS! I’m stronger than you imagine but waking up/going to bed to your ugliness is just TOO MUCH, kids, I get it, OK? You can stop now. As far as WHATEVER you’re really mad about, I had my reasons. It’s been years! Just chalk it up to your ignorance of my reality and LET… IT… GO. As for my mistakes, God has dealt with me.”

In a recent interview with radio host Persia Nicole, Keri revealed that her feud with Beyonce was over and she’ll be down to work with her one day:

“Yeah sure. You know. Absolutely. She actually has introduced herself it was a gracious moment. I appreciated it. I feel like she understood what had happened, what had transpired. And there was a little bit of healing in that moment when we met. I take her as a very intuitive kind of soul as am I. I think that it would be a probably a very fun experience to do that, if she were open. But yeah, I do feel like she understood what that was all about. So yeah, she’s amazing. I’ve always felt this way. That’s the truth of the matter but no one will believe that.”
