Keri Hilson has faced a bit of a backlash following the release of her sexually-charged video for the single “The Way You Love Me.” The explicit version of the song hit the Internet last week and the public has been divided in its response to the racy imagery and raunchy lyrics, I was actually just having this conversation with two females the other day, and you should already know what they thought about it. Rick Ross weighs in controversy by coming Keri Hilson’s defense.
“When I got the record, I most definitely knew she was going to another level and I was excited for her,” Ross told MTV News. “I love to see the creative side. She’s a sexy female and I think she showed that. When I think of Janet Jackson when I was coming up and she was doing her Control thing, I loved it. So if that’s the feeling that young people [are getting] or whoever is feeling the music, if that’s the inspiration they get, I think it’s dope.”
Everybody just need to calm down and take a step back, the video wasn’t that crazy. There’s been much more raunchy music videos than that, I think it’s just because it’s Keri Hilson doing it that’s the real issue because it’s a complete 360 from who Keri was on her last album. The lyrics are explicit but it’s not big deal, move on and get over it.
