[artist id="1746119"]Keri Hilson[/artist] and [artist id="1801883"]Ciara[/artist] were long believed to be at odds over Hilson’s alleged CiCi dis on the “Turnin’ Me On” remix. The two Georgia peaches kept a lid on any animosity, but in a new interview with Jones magazine, Hilson revealed that she and Ciara were, in fact, in a bit of a feud.
“It was unfortunate, because we used to be really good friends,” Hilson said in the cover story. “We let the media get in the way and speak for us, and we weren’t speaking to each other.”
Hilson anchored the “Turnin’ Me On” remix — featuring T-Pain and Lil Wayne — with a sing-song flow, firing shots that hit a little too close to home for Ciara. “Go ‘head and tell them folks how long I been writing your songs,” Hilson sings. “I been puttin’ you on, just check the credits, ho.”
Ciara later responded in her song “Basic Instinct (U Got Me),” spewing lyrics about being “all fired up.”
Last month, though, the two patched things up, appearing jointly in a Ustream interview. They both appeared at BET’s “Black Girls Rock!” celebration too, which is also chronicled in the winter issue of Jones, set to hit newsstands November 30.
“We’re good now,” Hilson told Jones of Ciara. “Nobody wants to fight with an old friend. It’s not cute, and it doesn’t reflect our character. Don’t get me wrong: I am feisty, but I’m not catty.”
