Keri Hilson Discusses ‘Turnin’ Me On Remix’ Controversy

Keri Hilson spoke with in a Q&A, asking the singer and songwriter if she could understand the belief she was taking shots at Beyonce and Ciara when the ‘Turnin’ Me On Remix’ came out. Hilson responded:

Absolutely. I was using somebody else’s lyrics and the word ‘she’ can be taken many ways. Any piece of art is subject to interpretation and I understand that music is no different. When a rapper uses someone else’s lyric, it’s like that was a hot line that so and so used, but when a girl does it, or when I do it, all of a sudden it means I was talking directly to who they’re considering as my competition when I don’t even see it that way. I see that there’s a place for all of us and I’m addressing what these people say about me on these blogs. I hear she’s a song writer but ain’t nothing special about her. She should just go marry an athlete and have some babies. But I do see where they got it from but that wasn’t the energy behind it.

The entire interview at has since been removed.

    1st love all Keri Hilson ain’t got no competition with Ciara because KERI Hilson couldn’t stand a chance with Ciara man Ciara can sit Keri down in a minute man I can sit her down and she better keep CiCi name out of her mouth.

    Wow; So now she saying she was talking about herself ? When she said ‘to the left to the left’ making it be referred to Beyonce. I thought she was ‘okay’ until she made this little remix, don’t ever be a new person to the game who had one hit at the time and try to disrespect two people who have been down through the game for a long time. Keri came out with 3 singles which nobody ever knew about until your third one came out with Lil Wayne, then your label said , okay I think the fans will buy into her album, but you sold not even 100,000 the first week ? WOW
