Keri Hilson spoke candidly about how her life has changed for the better since she rededicated it to God and fell in love with her NBA boyfriend Serge Ibaka. However, this new stage in her life still doesn’t mean she’s ready to apologize for her beef with Beyonce.
Keri sat down with Global Grind where she admitted that she’s become a new person after finding Christ again, shortly before finding the man of her dreams.
All over the R&B singer’s Instagram are pictures of herself and she appears much happier than the Keri we’ve seen in the past. In many snaps she even seems to be “glowing” with joy.
“I don’t know what’s changed,” she said. “I’ve been in a relationship for a year, I rededicated my life to Christ in April 2012, I came out of a really dark depression.”
She went on to say that after years of smiling for cameras, she’s finally smiling for herself and there is genuine happiness behind her smiles this time around.
As for falling in love with her new man, she felt that finding Serge was nothing short of a gift from God.
“I actually met him maybe six months after I rededicated my life to Christ,” she said.
The experience apparently has been enough to convince the R&B star that God really has quite the sense of humor.
“And I also felt like God is a comedian, for real,” she said. “He gave me everything I wanted and everything I thought I didn’t want. You know? He’s like ‘Ha! You’ve got to trust me. Stop putting limits on who I am and what I do.’ I absolutely had limits – I had parameters.”
Of course, Keri hasn’t turned into an angel just because she has a boo and rededicated her life to Christ. Apparently she still just can’t get over whatever her beef is with Beyonce and she claims that the rumored “Apology” track isn’t really about Queen Bey at all.
Although even the song’s producer Timbaland revealed that the song was a musical apology letter to Bey and Jay Z, Keri didn’t really want to say much about the track other than it’s not what it appears to be.
“There’s really nothing to be said about it,” Keri said. “What I will say, is the way Tim represented my verse is a little off. It’s not something I want to talk about right now. It’s not important to me. I’m not even sure if that song will be on the album.”
The question is, was the song supposed to be an apology and she decided to back out of showing any remorse for the trash talk? Or was she truly never intending to apologize to Beyonce?
Quite frankly, it seems like the first option is probably the best one here.
Either way, Keri actually called Timbaland and told him that she wasn’t crazy about the way he represented her verse as an apology to Baddie Bey.
“I called him up,” Keri said. “We have that kind of relationship where we can speak to each other very candidly and very directly.”
She didn’t go into specifics about how the phone call went, but we’re pretty sure there was a lot of backpedaling.
Either way, it’s always good news to hear that someone managed to pull themselves out of a dark time their life ,and we’re happy for Keri Hilson in that regard.
