Keri Hilson Thanks Fans For AIDS Walk New York Donations

Keri Hilson with the ladies

Keri Hilson checked in with her Twitter followers (@KeriHilson) on Wednesday (May 16) ahead of Sunday’s AIDS Walk New York event. The 29-year-old was soliciting donations for the event. Hilson writes:

–if you can’t make it but wanna do ur part to save lives, donate ANY amount–> http://bit.ly/IxuXUF check this out–> http://bit.ly/KjLERs

There’s an option to donate anonymously. Goes under “Keri Hilson” on the list. Just found out abt another DOPE prize to TWO highest donors!

I wish they’d chosen another name tho, that’s a little misleading. It does not reflect w/ my personal donation *whistles off* Anywho!

Big hug to everyone who has either donated their time on Sunday, or their hard-earned money to end the worldwide epidemic that is HIV/AIDS.

…and some of you are donating both time & money! BIG BIG HEARTS like yours can change the world.

R&B Artists React To Whitney Houston’s Death

Several R&B artists are sharing their thoughts on Twitter following the news that Whitney Houston had been found unresponsive in her room at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on Saturday afternoon and declared dead after paramedics were unsuccessful performing CPR on the singing legend. Houston was 48. Among the Tweets:

Willow Smith (@Willow_Camille1): R.I.P Whitney… :) we will always love you<3

Rihanna (@rihanna): No words! Just tears #DearWhitney
I honestly can’t think of anything else!!!
Feels so strange being at the Grammy rehearsal right now!!

Michelle Williams (@RealMichelleW): I don’t know what to say….

Jawan Harris (@singerjawan) Im not even gonna believe Whitney Houston just passed away… Nope?? Not having it.

Kelly Rowland (@KELLYROWLAND): I am beyond heartbroken. Whitney Houston was undoubtedly one of the greatest singers & performers of all time & such a huge influence on me. She embraced me when I first started out with Destiny’s Child, with love, with encouragement and with that powerhouse voice. My deepest sympathies and prayers go out to her daughter, her mother and to all of her loved ones.

Keri Hilson Fumes Over Mobile Phone Memory Card Issues

Keri Hilson fingernails

Keri Hilson checked in with her Twitter followers (@MissKeriBaby) earlier today, frustrated with her mobile phone after a switch of the shell somehow messed up her memory card. The 28-year-old singer writes:

Please tell me how its possible that switching the housing (shell) on my phone can result in losing ALL MY MEMORY?! Music, pics…GONE! GRR

If that company doesn’t bring my ish back somehow, I will put them on so much BLAST!!!!!!! I’m so sentimental. I need my pics, man. WTF

Did I mention he accomplished wiping out TWO phones while changing damn cases? My assistant’s phone is wiped out too. He did something wrong :(

Taking phones back…wish us luck. Or wish HIM luck *evil serious face*

So, the card itself wasn’t damaged! Was able to upload pics on my comp. *wipes forehead* but my phone still doesn’t recognize the card :/

Moral of the story: Back up anything you deem important on your phones—NOW!!!!!! Ya just never know. Close call…punk broke my ish.

Keri Hilson Can’t Have Songwriting Without Singing

Keri Hilson stopped by Cee Lo Green’s new show ‘Talking to Strangers’ the other night and the two chatted about how Keri manages to balance her professional and personal lives. Keri later treated the audience to a performance of her hit ‘Pretty Girl Rock’ and Cee Lo surprised her on stage.

“I like to have my cake and eat it too,” Hilson said about whether she prefers songwriting or being an artist. “I really can’t have one without the other because being an artist was my first dream. Songwriting was my plan B, and I learned to love it. I never even knew it would take off as fast and as far as it did. I never guessed I would write for Britney Spears and Mary J. Blige, who I grew up… Usher, Chris Brown.”

Keri kicks off her tour with Lil Wayne, Rick Ross, Lloyd, and Far East Movement on July 13th in Hartford, CT. For a full list of tour dates and news, check out Keri’s official site, kerihilson.com.

A teaser of the interview and a clip of her performance at theplatform.com has since been removed.

Keri Hilson folded arms

An estimated 33 million people are living with AIDS worldwide and Keri Hilson is taking a stand against the epidemic by partnering with H&M on their Fashion Against AIDS Collection. 25% of proceeds from the collection will be donated to global youth HIV/AIDS prevention efforts. “It’s something I feel very strongly about because AIDS is something that if you have the knowledge, you can prevent it, it’s just choices,” the R&B singer said. Fans can check out a behind-the-scenes video of Keri talking about the collection and why she chose to get involved below.

Keri Hilson Slams Lie Linking Her Sexually To Missy Elliott

Keri Hilson in a toilet stall

Keri Hilson is firing back at a report from frequently discredited slander site M***T***O**.com, claiming she had a lesbian relationship with Missy Elliott after being seduced by the 39-year-old artist. Keri told her Twitter followers (@MissKeriBaby):

Lies!! How do those ppl sleep at night? I love & respect Missy & her work, but we’ve never worked & I’ve prolly seen her 5 times in my life!

It’s kinda annoying being asked about things I’ve already addressed in my timeline….like…especially when it’s very recent.

Keri and Missy then had the following exchange:

Missy: @MissKeriBaby Girl It amazes me how we never worked 2gether and barely know each other but they make up a full out lie! Smh

Keri: @MissyElliott Those people are just as creative as we are! Hope they get paid well for it…

Keri: @MissyElliott don’t worry my lil suga-lips, the world will never understand the bond that we [NEVER] had… #WORKIT!
