Making It Rain On Them Hoes: Keri Hilson Inks A Deal With Avon, Replaces J-Hud

- By Bossip Staff

Avon announced today that Keri Hilson will be the face of Imari, Imari Seduction and Avon’s Color brand. Starting in August, she’ll be showing up in the Avon brochure. Hilson says:  

“I’m so excited and honored to be Avon’s newest face,” says Hilson. “Avon has always been dedicated to empowering women through beauty. I’ve always strived to do the same with my music. To be a part of that experience means a tremendous amount to me.”  

She’s replacing Jennifer Hudson, who has moved on to Weight Watchers endorsement. Good look for Keri…

    J-HUD DIDN’T DESERVE IT ANYWAYS

    And Keri Hilson is… who?

  • Unbought_and_Unafraid

    the REALITY is that the “mainstream” (read “eurocentric”) culture prefers a certain “look” for a woman to be considered “attractive” —- ain’t saying THAT’S the way it ought to be, but that’s the way it IS.

    why don’t you see women like Rosanne Barr as the spokeswoman for stuff like this? after all, women of all shapes use toiletries and cosmetics —- probabley a lot MORE women who look like Rosanne exist in the world than women who look like THIS, but we all know the deal.

    that’s NOT a knock on this lady — if I had the Denzel looks that make women want to throw themselves at you, BELIEVE me I’d capitalize on them TOO.

    What happen to the days when artists invested more time on perfecting their vocals and stage performance as oppose to taking work from those whose only talent is modeling, selfish bums..
    Keri, Rhianna and Ciara go work on your singing and let these millions of contestants from Top Model “MODEL”

    Keri has a lot more fans than Jennifer. Yeah right, lol. I hope she didn’t agree to be paid a precentage of sales over the previous volume sold while Jennifer was the face of this product.

  • always knew

    I’m glad that another blk woman got a gig..

    This is too bad, J-Hud just lost ALL that weight..But it’s not like she is hurting for gigs..

    So glad and happy to see my sisters getting paid, in their own right, not off some guy they have to depend on..

    Great look, ladies… 🙂

    SUPPORT BLK WOMAN OWNED BUSINESSES.

    Avon has pretty lipstick shades for women of color.

  • uhh yeah ok

    I kind of resent the comment about eurocentric appeal…

    Who cares? The girl looks beautiful either way and if you really wanted to change the standard there’s no better time than now to get out there. Please don’t fall victim to 1912. (exageration)…

  • uhh yeah ok

    “What happen to the days when artists invested more time on perfecting their vocals and stage performance as oppose to taking work from those whose only talent is modeling”

    There’s no money in it. (I think).. Unless you’re booking shows and out there as an image/visual.. Talent is secondary, but it counts..

  • JerseyGirl

    Why do people feel they have to put one person down to big up another????
    Jennifer Hudson only had a 2 year contract with Avon and I’m happy for Keri I wish her the best.
    But who still use Avon???

  • LJ

    KERI IS A HARD WORKING ARTIST. I’M GLAD SHE GOT THE AVON ENDORSEMENT. WE SHOULD BE PROUD OF OUR WOMEN OF COLOR SISTERS AND SUPPORT THEM ON ALL THEIR ENDEAVORS.

  • Marquis de Sade

    I whole-heartedly embrace this replacement. J. Hudson was a poor choice aesthetic-wise. I always felt her looks were more suited for DARK N’ UGLY. Kudos, Keri. 🙂

  • Marvice

    What a rude comment! Marquis de Sade, beauty is not always on the outside, some people are beautiful from the inside out. Grow up!
