Twerking Tuesday. It’s a day filled with twerking and working, so why not start things off with Keri Hilson addressing the idea that some twerking may have gotten her knocked up? Speaking of twerking, have we finally seen its last days? He might not have Kelis anymore, but could Nas have a thing for another musician? All this coming up in SOHH Whatcha Think.

1. Where Have You Been?
It seems like forever since we last heard a hot Keri Hilson record on the radio. It wasn’t too long ago when she was tearing things up with all of the biggest music stars in the game and easily making a lane for herself as an R&B artist not to be messed with. But could a pregnancy and disinterest in music be the reason behind her absence? Necole Bitchie is all over this:
This morning, the rumor mill was buzzing that she was quitting music and could possibly be pregnant which she quickly shot down: “I get how you could THINK you found clues to that conclusion you conjured…but I’m NOT pregnant. Those “clues” are unrelated & exaggerated. I’m not TAKING a leave of absence, I TOOK a leave of absence. Decided to finally let my fans know that I did indeed step away for a while… Thought addressing that would help CLEAR some confusion but it created more o_O And you wonder why I choose to be quiet/private these days! I was simply showing appreciation 4 fans who stayed down during a hiatus that I never addressed.” (Necole Bitchie)
Two years is a pretty long time to step away from the music scene and not quit. Fans tend to love you and hate you quite easily and her just packing it up and deciding she’ll come back when she’s ready could really explode in her face. Any chance Keri has the star power to really make it big when she returns? #SOHHWhatchaThink?
2. No Work, No Twerk
Have we seen the last of twerking? Typically when a popular thing turns too commercial and too widely accepted, it loses it essence and thus, dies out. We’ve seen Miley Cyrus twerking it and even had twerk become a popular expression on television/radio, is this the end? Turns out Jill Scott had some thoughts on the topic. Bossip has this covered:
Jill Scott is not only a melodic R&B singer but also a Twitter comedian apparently. The thickums diva called for the end of the notorious trend of twerking but happened to offend a few in the process with this tweet. Many were offended by the tweet of its portrayal of African Americans…. (Bossip)
Could Jill have made a valid point but just in a poor manner? Is twerking something silly and not relevant? What about brushing that dirt off your shoulder? Dropping down and getting your eagle on? Could all this be simply because Jill Scott can’t twerk it herself? #SOHHWhatchaThink?
3. God’s Wifey
Is Nas in love again? No longer married or dating Kelis, he’s been rumored to have a few women in his life like the late Amy Winehouse and even Nicki Minaj not too long ago. However, there are starting to be rumblings of him and a certain Grand Hustle lady being much more than just friends. Media Take Out gives its spin:
June 11, 2013: Nas was spotted backstage last week at the afterparty for an Iggy Azaelia concert. The two arrived together, hung out in VIP together, and left together. It definitely had people wondering what’s going on between these two. (Media Take Out)
This is likely just Nas showing off his mentoring skills to the young Iggy Azalea. She seems primed for success in this industry and what better person to get some advice from that Nas himself? #SOHHWhatchaThink?
That about wraps it up for today. This is SOHH On The Spot giving you the morning scoop from your favorite gossip sites.
