Keri Hilson made her Lifetime debut on Saturday night in the star-studded rom-com, Love By The 10th Date. And while the beauty has proven to have the acting chops down pat, we are still anxiously awaiting some fresh music from the Atlanta native.

But while we all anticipate Hilson dropping something we can pretty girl rock to, we might have to wait a bit longer. “I’ve really just been enjoying the actress life right now,” Hilson told us exclusively at the Los Angeles premiere of Love By The 10th Date. “I feel like a student. It’s fresh and new for me.”

She added, “It’s still art, it’s still a form of expression, yes, I’m still a song writer. I will never stop creating. I was put on this earth to create.”

Hilson’s musical career seemed to have taken a turn after the release of her track, “The Way You F*ck Me.” Following the release of the 2010 track and then the video, folks criticized the singer for the explicit lyrics and provocative images. After all, she was singing about having “the kinda pu&&y that’ll keep you out the streets.”

Despite having not released a full single project since the 2010 LP No Boys Allowed, Hilson is adamant that she is still putting in some work. “Whether I release music myself I got so much work over these past few years. I’ve down so many songs and projects.”

Wilson concluded with these very words: “Stay tuned.”

So, we have hope …

    Keri has no acting “bug”, she went to Emory Uni for Theater after all. So she’s doing something she’s been training for. Not sure why you chose to make it seem like her music career took a hit with the buzz single TWYLM, the album (commercially) did better than her first.

    Her career did take a hit. If you think not you’re in denial. Yes, she has the acting bug as she said herself. Whether she went to school for it or not, her focus was on music until her career started flopping

5 Reasons You Need To Know Daveed Diggs

Published

If you don’t know the name Daveed Diggs you will now! The Oakland native is definitely one to watch in Hollywood. Here are five reasons why.

1. He has already taken Broadway by storm.

In 2016 Diggs nabbed a Tony and a Grammy award for his role as Marquis de Lafayette/ Thomas Jefferson in “Hamilton.” Believe it or not Diggs didn’t even audition for the role. While substitute teaching in Marin County, CA he met Hamilton’s eventual star and creator Lin Manuel-Miranda and director, Thomas Kail who invited him to join their free-style rap group and later helped them craft the fast-rapping revolutionary. 

2. He’s funny. 

Diggs is proving he’s also got some amazing comedy chops with two memorable recurring sitcom roles: one as Perry, the crush du jour for Kimmy (Ellie Kemper) on Netflix’s Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, and the other on ABC’s black-ish as Johan, the free-spirited brother of Rainbow (Tracee Ellis Ross). In fact, Black-ish creator Kenya Barris wrote the role for Diggs after being “blown away” by his performance on stage.

3. His first feature film Wonder is in theaters now.

In the film based on the New York Times best-selling novel of the same name, Diggs plays Mr. Browne the fifth grade teacher at the school where lead Jacob Tremblay attends. Diggs landed the role after wrapping his run in “Hamilton” and told HH it was like a crash course in film acting alongside Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson.

4. He’s a rapper. 

His experimental noise rap group Clipping has garnered a major cult following on Youtube. Their LP CLPPNG was an Album Of The Week back in 2014. And in 2016 the trio performed on The Late Late Show with James Corden to promote the release of their six-track EP Wriggle. 

5. He is executive producer of ABC’s The Mayor.  

The show about a struggling young rapper (Brandon Micheal Hall) who runs for local office (and wins) to boost his popularity, debuted this Fall and already is garnering wave reviews. Not surprisingly Diggs and his Clipping bandmates William Hutson and Jonathan Snipes, also produce all the music for the show.
