Keri Hilson gives us a history lesson in her new video for “Pretty Girl Rock”, off her upcoming album ‘No Boys Allowed’. Miss Keri Baby kicks off the vid taking a cue from Josephine Baker in 20s regalia, and soon Hilson goes flows throughout the decades, fashioning herself as Diana Ross, Janet Jackson decked out in her utilitarian wear in “Rhythm Nation” and TLC’s T-Boz in the group’s silk pajamas-sporting “Creep” vid.

Music In Ya Ear!: Keri Hilson – “Pretty Girl Rock”:
“The video is cute, but not my favorite. I think it should’ve looked much more tough, she looks to dainty in this video. What are your thoughts on this video?”
While the blogosphere and fans have fueled the feud between R&B singers Keri Hilson and Ciara, could a collaboration be in the works that would end the drama once and for all?
Miss Keri appeared on Angie Martinez’s Hot 97 radio show on Monday to once again address the rumored beef between her and her fellow ATlien. When asked whether any of the gossip was true, the Decatur songstress responded;
“Not really, it’s nothing real—not in the real world. I know that they take anything and kind of drag it on. They made up that I was in New York when supposedly we had a fight or scuffle backstage. I wasn’t even in the city, I was in L.A.”
Despite growing up in the same region, Keri doesn’t see why people feel the need to pit them against each other. “I do honestly feel that there’s room for everybody,” she said. “We do two different things, we come from two different places musically.”
When Angie suggested a duet to silence the chatter, Keri replied, “That’s a thought,” hinting that one has been discussed.
“I’ll be honest, I can’t say that we haven’t had some talks about it, little whispers about doing a song together, it just hasn’t happened. I’ve heard things from people…”
She then turned the focus back to her sophomore album ‘No Boys Allowed’ and her new single “Pretty Girl Rock,” which she debuted on the air.

Keri Hilson performed her new single, “Pretty Girl Rock,” on Wednesday Sept. 29, 2010 in Time Square at the Beats by Dr. Dre Event. Keri is beautiful and of course she knows it. She made sure that you knew it as well. Her lyrics, “Girls think I’m conceited because I know I’m attractive.” “Don’t hate me ’cause I’m beautiful!”
Written and produced by Ne-Yo and Chuck Harmony, “Pretty Girl Rock” is the second single from Hilson’s sophomore album, ‘No Boys Allowed’, which currently doesn’t have a release date. Following the lukewarm response to the disc’s lead single “Breaking Point,”Hilson is hoping “Pretty Girl Rock” becomes a hit. I think personally, the song is DOPE!! It is definitely a feel good tune, and definitely a them song for those confident ladies, especially the ones who have an inner Alter-Ego, as I do…LOL
I was actually at the event celebrating my 10 year Anniversary with my man, and boy was it a great way to spend it. Keri Hilson was looking so beautiful. WOW!! She came out performing with a gun microphone than switched up afterwards. It looked like it weighed a ton for her to be holding while performing. She definitely rocked the show. Her grommet vest was DOPE!! I so want it.
Also in attendance performing was Soulja Boy. He ended up making it rain, by throwing a stack of money into the crowd. Note to the ladies, he actually looks better in person than what he does on tv…Just saying!
Dr. Dre was also there, but never came down to the stage area to say anything or at least thank everyone for coming to the event. I thought was a bit messed up on his part, but I guess you can say the performances took away from his shine.
It was great! We really enjoyed ourselves. Happy 10 Year Anniversary to me! ;o)
Check out the “Pretty Girl Rock” performance after the jump….I will also be posting up some photos from the event, real soon. I need to get them uploaded.
