Former 3LW member and Cheetah Girl, Kiely Williams has gone wild. In what is suppose to be the final solo career launch of one-third of the original 3LW crew, the 23-year-old singer and actress has chosen to do what Erykah Badu eloquently describes as “hoe-sh*t.” Yesterday, the ladies of Clutch like the rest of America watched Williams’ “Spectacular” video only to experience a resounding, out-of-body growl or more simply, the acronymic “WTH”and “WTF” favored reaction. Williams’ “Spectacular” video is arguably one of the most desperate performances in music history. The former Disney star has not only chosen the “sex sells” industry survival route, Williams has opted to explicitly sing about being drunk and not remembering much. Or more desperately, whether or not she used protection during sex with a complete stranger.
You know we had to give you 10 questions for Kiely Williams. Dearest Kiely, this one is especially for you. Do take note.
1. Is this a joke?
Maybe this is apart of some massive prank. Okay, you can stop now.
2. Pulling a Britney?
Take it from Britney Spears, following a Disney stint with some straight up loose hussy ish never works.
3. Who told you this was a good idea? Fire them all!
Kiely, who are your advisers? This is a career fail. We’re not dancing with you, we’re laughing at you.
4. Wonder what Naturi Naughton thinks?
You know, the girl you and Adrienne Bailon forced out of the 3LW and reportedly even degraded. Well, she’s moved on to star in several major films including a successful stint on Broadway. We’re certainly laughing with Naturi.
5. What does your mother think?
Michelle Williams, your mother was the creator of 3LW. Does she approve of your recent turn to whore-dom? Oh God, please don’t tell us she encouraged this!
6. Couldn’t cast a better leading man?
So Kiely, what’s up with the video’s leading man? He looks horrible. And no, he’s wasn’t built like a stallion. His naked ass is scary.
7. These lyrics, really?
“It felt so good I must have been on drugs”; “I hope he used a rubber or Ima be in trouble.”Okay we’re not board members of the AARP here, but really Kiely? If your goal is to get banned by the FCC, you got it girl!
8. Why Toni Morrison and Bahamian currency?
How disrespectful is it to have a picture of Toni Morrison in your slutty video (see 1:27)? We’re also a little confused on the appearance of Bahamian currency and the video’s other collaged images. Sure doesn’t help you gyrating around in those wack sequined hot pants.
9. Why not just do a sex tape?
Shooting a sex tape would have been a cheaper route yielding the same result = “Hello America, I’ll do just about anything for attention!”
10. Do you have a Plan B?
No Kiely, not the pill. We’re referring to a career alternative. Because this wretched video just killed it for you.
Keily’s Message: “I am an actor and performer. I have been so since my first role in a television pilot at five years old. I played a character when I was a Cheetah Girl. I am playing a character in the music video for the song Spectacular, as I did in the Cheetah Girl movies. Young women across the country get intoxicated and have unprotected sex. That’s a fact. I recorded the song to bring attention to this frighteningly prevalent activity. It is absurd to infer or suggest that I am condoning this behavior.
Are Lady Gaga and Beyonce advocating murder with the Telephone video? Of, course not. Was Rihanna encouraging suicide with Russian Roulette? No. Was Madonna suggesting that young unmarried girls get pregnant with Papa Dont Preach? I dont think so. Is Academy Award winner Monique a proponent of incest because of her portrayal of Mary in the movie Precious. Clearly, the answer is no.
I wrote Spectacular and made the video to bring attention to a serious womens health and safety issue. Please dont shoot the messenger.”
