*Keri Hilson might just be smiling from ear to ear these days as one of her wishes was recently granted. She met her idol, Lauryn Hill.

In an interview, she expressed her admiration for the multi-talented, multi-genius artist and suggested working with her in the future.

“I loved her candidness, her candor, she’s just up there. She exposes all sides of herself, her vulnerabilities, insecurities but you also see the strength and her innocence,” she said.

Now that her wish has come true, the next step is getting Hill to make a record with the new singer.

“No one understands…I will never be the same. Utmost respect 4 Lauryn
Hill. So beautiful,” she told her fans. “Very down to earth. Anyone who knows me knows she’s a huge inspiration to me…I told her 2nite. Said she loves Pretty Girl Rock (SCREAAAM) & her daughter loves me! Said my music embodies a certain confidence women need. I’m so inspired. Keri also says the impromptu meeting made her long for an opportunity to meet Michael Jackson, the only other person she’s ever really wanted to meet.”

Hilson’s “No Boys Allowed,” sold over 100,000 copies in its first week.
