          Oh, so this has nothing to do with Keri Hilson.

            Well I’m guessing that depends on the actual comment I believe she wanted to reply to. I don’t know where it’s at, sometimes the site goes haywire. Right now, it’s only showing me 10 comments under Keri Hilson name, when I know it’s at least 144 comments on her site page

    She got a nose job I think. Look up her high school at age 17 or so pics. Her nose looked more softer and flatter. Now it looks more crooked and bigger. Taking in account her other features and her family That probably means she really isn’t as high in European DNA as I thought she was.

    she’s not close to 100 percent ssa. No way. It’s not just her skin tone which isn’t that light, it’s her overall facial features.

    I’d say she’s probably 1/3 other. Maybe less or more but just because “black people come in all colours” doesn’t mean that you can’t be mixed lol. And she’s New world African so the chances of her being mixed with something are more high then if she was actually from Africa itself, maybe save for the Horners.
