Keri Hilson's a triple threat: She sings, she writes and she's absolutely, positively, undoubtedly bad. Exhibit A: Our 2009 Style & Design issue that had the sultry songstress all oiled up on the cover. Her solo career may just have started but we don't see anyone taking her, uh, shine anytime soon.
Her 2009 Style & Design cover had the Internet buzzin'! Don't take our word for it, ask Soulja Boy: "Just picked up complex mag with @misskeribaby on the front. o my goodness!!!"
