Beware Of The BeyHive: Keri Hilson Opens Up About 7-Year Battle With Depression That Was Triggered By “Personal and Professional Mistakes” - blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Just two months after opening up about her 7-year musical hiatus, KeriHilson is speaking out about what forced her to take time away from music: depression. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “When ‘Pretty Girl Rock’ was at the top of the charts, I was bearing the weight of some personal and professional mistakes and they just weighed so, so, so heavy on my spirit and I was just not myself,” she said. (Was it the “Beyoncé diss” that led to an intense attack by the Beyhive?) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Although I was at the mountain of my life, really the trajectory of my dream - I was at the pinnacle, you know? I was severely unhappy and then add to that, this is when I decided to jump out of an eleven-year relationship. Bad decision, bad timing,” Hilson told xoNeCole, as she explained how the media impacted her situation. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “You don’t know where a person is, it’s not just about what you are feeding your audience, but what you are doing to the creators,” she told the publication. “There are a lot of undeserving people that are being attacked by just a headline. You don’t understand some of the worst days of my life were from a lie. An attack on my character. And I am an amazing person. I do say that because I’ve done the work to become that and all I ever wanted to be was just a great human being.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But, now after years of recovery, Hilson says she is not all the way there, but she is “in the clear.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Literally, 7 years of my life have been a battle with depression. And I can’t say that I’m all the way clear, but I’m in the clear,” she said.
