This Flight Was Not A Movie: Keri Hilson Passes Out On Plane!

It seems like recording artists don’t have the best luck when it comes to their health on airplanes.

According to ESSENCE, singer/songwriter Keri Hilson fainted on her flight home from China (she was doing some performances there) last Friday. She apparently lost consciousness and when she woke up, she couldn’t hold anything down. As she explained when she took to Twitter to tell her fans:

“I fainted on my flight. then I threw up. I’m fine now, I just need real rest…haven’t had more than 3.5hrs of sleep in 48hrs #whatdreamsrmadeof”

On a moving plane with lack of sleep and likely not enough food (performers are notorious for being so focused on the work at hand that they don’t remember to eat often, if at all), its no wonder this happened to her. Anyway, Keri made it home safely and apparently able to get some rest.

But to add insult to her own injury, Keri left her purse and her gifts on the plane – probably in haste to get off the flight.  I’m pretty sure the flight crew got everything back to her.

      Rumor has it that producers don’t want to work with her because of a Beyonce diss she did in her song, “Turnin Me On” (2008). She called Bey out on not being able to right her own lyrics.

      “She can sing, but need to move it, to the left / She need to go have some babies / She needs to sit down, she fadin’… / Go ‘head and tell them folks how long I been writing your songs / I been puttin you on, just check the credits ho.”
