Keri Hilson showed her love for Las Vegas in a photoshoot at Rumour Boutique Hotel, which we featured in our recent Billboard Music Awards special issue (photo shown above). Now we go behind the scenes at the shoot with the Grammy-nominated R&B diva.
She gives us the scoop on what makes Vegas great from an entertainer's point of view -- fans who are "in party mode," and the fab shopping doesn't hurt, either. "Vegas is awesome in the summer. I love the fans here -- they're uninhibited and in that certain mood that makes playing for them so much fun. When I arrive at my hotel, the first thing I do is settle in, get a frozen drink and relax by the pool. Then I like to indulge in serious shopping and take in some shows. Come ready to win a little bit of money at the tables and then spend it all on yourself!"
Hilson also dishes on her dream collaborations (Lauryn Hill) and what's on her iPod (from Feist to Robin Thicke). Watch below, and check out the Billboard Music Awards, airing live from Las Vegas this Sunday (May 22) at 8pm ET on ABC.
About Rumour Boutique Hotel: Life is short. Summer is shorter. This summer book a get-away at the Rumour Boutique Hotel -- Vegas' newest all-suite boutique hotel that offers it all. Stroll out to the pool and unwind in a palm-covered hammock, sip a cocktail at the bar or enjoy tapas at Addiction Restaurant. Best of all, when you stay her, you all-new suite is just steps away from the Vegas Strip.
