Keri Hilson was a fresh faced newcomer more than a decade ago when her record label told her to diss then-superstar Beyonce Knowles on a track.
In an interview with Claudia Jordan, Hilson recalled dissing Beyonce on her song "Turning M On" and how the fake beef hurt her spirit.
Hilson claims her label made her diss Beyonce, and she was too young and insecure to tell them no.
Hilson, a 37-year-old Sagittarius, said she took a 9-year hiatus from music to heal herself due to clinical depression.
She said she contemplated quitting the business altogether. "I just knew I needed time to get back to myself."
Hilson said she was "incredibly" unhappy following the breakup of an 11-year relationship.
"I was 17 to 28 years old in that relationship, so I did not know life alone. I did not know and love and accept myself. I didn't know who the hell I was."
