Keri Hilson Meets Her Idol Lauryn Hill

Keri Hilson finally came face to face with her idol Lauryn Hill at the former Fugees member’s show at Blue Note Jazz Club in New York City last night.

“No one understands…I will never be the same,” tweeted Miss Keri following their backstage meet-up. “Utmost respect 4 Lauryn Hill. So beautiful. Very down to earth. Anyone who knows me knows she’s a huge inspiration to me…I told her 2nite.”

It turns out Keri is a hit in the Hill household. “Said she loves Pretty Girl Rock (SCREAAAM) & her daughter loves me! Said my music embodies a certain confidence women need. I’m so inspired.”

Keri previously said she would love to write for Ms. Hill. “I love Lauryn Hill to death. I’d love to write her comeback song,” she told Rap-Up TV. “She is kind of like me, brutally honest.”
