Kiely Williams Defends ‘Spectacular’ Video

Published: Thursday 8th Apr 2010 by Sam

After the backlash which ensued following the première of Kiely Williams‘ new video for single ‘Spectacular’, the former 3LW star has taken to the net to defend the risqué clip. Check out what she had to say after the jump…

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 Don’t Preach?” I don’t 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 women’s health and safety issue.
Please don’t shoot the messenger.

Ms. Norwood pretty much sums up my sentiments on this one. SMH…

Your thoughts?

    She’s slow, where was the irony, humor or anything in that mess she called a video. If it was commentary of how young women should excercise good judgement and responsibilty for their actions she really did a s*** job of expressing it cause no one got it!

    And she really shouldn’t bring those other artists into the discussion attempting to compare her video to theirs, her message was lost when I heard that horrible song and saw that horrible bare ass. Try again.

    She resembles Tisha Campbell. She does raise valid points. I just wonder who is gonna play the video? It can be only seen over the internet. She is certainly raising attention.

    the s** was spectaculaaar
    the s** was spectaculaaar

    shame on me!

  4. Deirdre B Pride April 8, 2010

    @Parisian, me too. It’s like that horrible Vanity song. Where the guy left stuff on her dress….. Pretty Mess. Don’t tell anybody I said that shat……lol

  5. Steve April 8, 2010

    I know I’m probably gonna go to hell for this but I’m actually starting to kinda like it. Fundamentally, it is a rubbish song. Very rubbish in fact. But for some unknown reason, I’m actually warming to the song. Just wish she kept her lisp – “The thexth woth thpectacular” would have been jokes!

  6. Miss Lala April 8, 2010

    Errm No love! Major fail

  7. arfa April 8, 2010

    I loved 3LW but she had to go and f*** everything up with this s***

  8. Joseph McCoy April 8, 2010

    She has a very valid point.

    I think the song is catchy, She’s definitely getting the bills paid with this one.

  9. jonstrax April 8, 2010

    LMAO AT THE BRANDY SIDE EYE LOL
    YE W/E SHE MENT IT AS A SERIOUS SONG LOL

    I clearly see her point in the statement above. Some people we knock down and others we support when the situations are pretty much the same. Haven’t seen the video so I can’t speak on it but she’s most definitely telling the truth. And its nothing wrong with her trying to break in the music industry as a solo artist. I mean if you give up on yourself then who will push you to prevail further.

  11. Topman April 8, 2010

    Oh Kiely, if that was your point did you ever think of writing that message maybe at the start of the video, or even at the end?!? Now you’re just a laughing stock…

  12. gh_Mikie April 8, 2010

    Oh you arent condoning that type of behaviour but the s** was “Spectacular”? silly rabbit…that video was wack as hell..looked like some home video mixed in with 16mm…that Vid prolly cost her $500.00, some change and a couple of food stamp cards….mmmtccheew!

  13. Kingnoah3000 April 8, 2010

    She is missing the point..its not the message.. … her song, lyrics, video was taste-less… Whom she mention lady gaga ect finished results were tactful..BIG DIFFERENCE

  14. вeяячℓiσuѕ вeα April 8, 2010

    Don’t believe pass on the song

  15. Puppy Love April 8, 2010

    I had to bleach my damn eyeballs after watching that sorry ass excuse for a video, and this statement didn’t make it any better.

    I’m so with@KingNoah3000

  16. DizzyGuy1985 April 8, 2010

    Wait a minute. It be one thing if the song was about not doing these things or talking about a girl who did. But she said:

    “I think he pulled a track out, when he was blowing my back out….”

    She has run out of ideas and is doing anything to make money. She should have stuck with Disney because they pay well and they could have made her a huge celeb with her own show. She wants media attention. Its sad because she had a bit of talent but she is just a tramp. You see she named dropped too?

    Kiely isn’t a ho but she just does “h** s***”

  17. X,Y,”and Z” April 8, 2010

    If I’m not too-mistaken, I saw this very same “Kiely Williams” on another site, in mid-to-late ’09: saying that R&B singer “Joe”, had dated her mother and had “abused her”, or words to THAT effect. Then, you could see her, in a picture with actor Shia Labeouf.

    …For me, HER ‘intent was clear’: ALL her subliminal-and-subconscious messages spoke loud-and-clear! I’m THRILLED that SHE was forced to issue THIS statement, I’m glad she’s NOW “backed-up, into-a-corner!”
    This b**** is an opportunist, and SHE tried to “play-the-victim’s-card”, during mid-late 09, as-much-as, Rihanna did, and is STILL trying!

    It’s NOT-enough to be light-skinned, and pop-your-c****** on camera, you gotta have some semblance or modicum of talent.
    This b**** is an opportunist, ‘a-crowd-pleaser’ and I hope she winds-up with some STD, preferably A***, or,at-the-very-least, a Rihanna-esque, H***** sore, on HER top lip!

    X,Y,”and Z” — OUT!

  18. Nick April 8, 2010

    I have NOT heard not seen the video…I will when I get home (maybe), BUT she is making a valid point, I just dont think she has the talent to be a solo star, BUT hey, do u babe….

  19. Blackout_Music_Fan1011 April 8, 2010

    To Kielyy:

    If it was done with a significant budget like those videos you mentioned, then it wouldn’t be such a big deal. It’s cheap looking. And if you had included that statement in the video at the beggining, then you wouldn’t be getting so much backlash. Stupid c***. I’m glad you got theose crooked ass teeth fixed..

  20. me April 8, 2010

    Dont twist things around b****

    You are bad influence young girls you HAW,

  21. TokyoDiamondz April 8, 2010

    Kiely know good and damn well she was lying through her teeth with this statement.. NO WHERE in the song did it say anything about “a woman’s health” and bringing awareness to this type of HO-ish activity… She was saying the words in the song as if she was enjoying the activity she was doing….

    Face facts… You wanted to be a H** in the video you ENJOYED making that retched mess you call a video.. If you were not condoning this type of activity then the SONG wouldn’t even exist… CASE CLOSED and H** Have a seat!

  22. jojo April 8, 2010

    That’s a lie- once you found out that this video and song is no good-you said that mess. You are a hot mess with your leg wide open. Who is going to learn from this song or video. Miss hot fake mess-legs open to the world to learn how not to be when you grow-up.

  23. marie April 8, 2010

    You see your career is over, and now you are acting like a hole- one that is wide open. You can do other things behinds doing the night shift. This is not cute at all.

  24. Dev April 8, 2010

    Nah, she has no valid point here. The song and the video are both sleazy and neither bring any attention or moral aspect to what she is talking about. What the hell has a butters b*** naken man on a bed represent? Where does it say in the song about being careful when drinking?
    Madonna was telling her father she was keeping her child. If nothing it supports young women in not having abortions and facing the prospects that thsy can raise a child.
    GaGa and Beyonce’s song mentions nothing about murder, and doesn’t show it either.
    Rihanna’s Russian Roulette may have insinuated, but never actually showed any death taking place.
    Monique was clearly showing the plight and taboo of insest in the family, the end of the film shows a resolution and a positive aspect, what is Kiely showing?
    If she had got positive feedback for this video she would’ve said nothing. What she’s doing is harm mangement and trying to save what non exsistant career she doen’t have. Kiely has clearly been the least talented in all the projects she has been involved with and if it wasn’t for her sister would be nowhere now. Not amount of boob job and short lace front is going to save her. No tasteless girating, bumping and grinding. No sell out behaviour. Nothing!
    She needs to sit sher ass down and swallow that with her two bit responce.

  25. EzE April 8, 2010

    W.T.F. IS WRONG WIT U PEOPLE!!! i swear people turn into such gangstas behind a keyboard…. leave her alone!!! she obviosly knows wtf shes doing and has a plan for all that nonsense in that video or else it wouldnt exist!!! and hate it or not the whole point of the song in the first place was to get her name in your mouth ( or keyboards) and it been working… think about it… bad publicity is better than none which is what she unforunatly had before this song correct me if im wrong… sum1 here had also said that she was an “oppertunist” and to me that was the dummest shyt ever cuz is she is, then so is EVERYONE ELSE IN HOLLYWOOD…… sumtimes i dont understand u thumb gangsters… why wasnt anyone down Rihanna s back for singing “Rude Boy” to millions of children?!?!? or Katy Perry giving lil kids a boobie show…. or miley grinding on a skripper pole?!?! hmmmm… most of you parents arent even role models for your children but you immediately call her a H.O.E for her “indie” vid?????????

  26. chelsie April 8, 2010

    Keily isn’t a ho but the decision to make this video and song is/was very misguided.

    Not to mention it is encouraging binge drinking and glorifying drunken anonymous s** and possibly date r***.

    Sadly these type of songs are all over the Radio under the guise of pop with their catchy hooks.

  27. NIQUE April 8, 2010

    Her wack ass know she need to quit. She just backtrackin because people ain’t supporting that low budget b*******. I personally don’t even mind the trashy lyrics (she’s not the first or last to go that route) but the wackness of it all and now how she’s making excuses for it is what’s annoying me. She know wasn’t no message in that mess. LMAO. SMH.

  28. No Ms. Thang April 8, 2010

    AMEN TO “TokyoDiamondz” you summed everything up that i wanted to say. This b**** is lying so much through her teeth she’s about to open that fawking gap! This song was not nothing positive to women out there. This b**** is just trying to cover it up like as if the song was to inspire…..yeah i will inspire allright for women to be s**** one night and the next say how “Spetacular the s** was” Girl Bye!!!! S.B. i hate when people say something negative but try to flip it into something positive….if it looks like a dog, bark like a dog….gues what people IT IS A DOG!!!!

  29. PAPARAZZI 4423 April 8, 2010

    I REALLY THINK THIS MIGHT BLOW UP THE DUMMIES LIKE ANYTHING

  30. D’andre April 8, 2010

    I honestly dont see what the big deal is….i dont like the song nor the video…but she like stated…its no difference from what everyone else is doing. People just wanna make a big deal out of NOTHING…..we’ve heard and seen it all before!! GET OVER IT!!!

  31. DizzyGuy1985 April 8, 2010

    According to wikipedia her second single is called Open My Legs, Tell Me What Ya Think”.

    Nice try Kieli but your a bold face lie.

  32. ::SquareBizz2020:: April 8, 2010

    B**** PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!

    ya know it simply pisses me off when public figures say retarded ass s*** and just assume the general public to be dumb enough to believe whatever b******* comes out of thier mouth…this statement is a direct insult to intellegence! i think the video is complete smut but i would have respected her more and even given her props if she would have just stood by her “art” and said “this is what i did, its what i wanted, its me. love it or hate it” yeah the s*** wouldve still been a mess but you cant knock a b**** who owns her actions. but shes a coward and a s***! that video and song was hoefessionally put together! it is the new hooker hit! she was even dressed ass a prostitute walking with other prostitutes down the street coming home after a long night of corner cruising! how can she make a statement like that..its preposterous! THERE IS NOT A YOUNG GIRL ON THE PLANET THAT WILL WATCH THIS VIDEO AND WALK AWAY FROM IT HAVING RECIEVED SOME TYPE OF VIRGINAL EPIPHONY,FEELING ENCOURAGED OR INFORMED FROM THIS VIDEOS SUPOSED ATTEMPT AT AWARENESS!! ” i hope he used a rubber, if not then im in trouble!” b**** CHOKE!! everything about the project from the lyrics to the naked man in your bed to the “dance” routine reads tramp, you made a song about f****** a guy you just met and him putting it down so good you would do it again, period. so say that. everybody isnt going to agree but if thats what you like, then do you! but dont f****** get on here and try to spin it into some type of good deed PSA for promiscuity promoting safe s**! are you serious!! because there have been many songs and videos that are exactly what you say yours was supposed to be and they have been executed successfully…(see Destiny’s Child “nasty”)..you’re a liar! a horrible one at that almost as bad a liar as you are a singer! i do not respect you

  33. Oggie April 8, 2010

    You know what 100% respect to her for this response, smart women!

  34. Anon April 8, 2010

    Someone shoot me. The chorus is stuck in my head! I think the song is catchy, and yes – trashy and slutty. Actually, that may be the reason I like it. Oh well….

  35. EzE April 9, 2010

  36. tweetypiebabe1 April 9, 2010

    Like I said yesterday I get her message but she went about it in the wrong way completely! She should have released this before the release of the video and song cause honestly nobody gets this message from that video and like someone said the video seems to condone it more than bring awareness so she should’ve done it in a different way. Bless her though cause I like her.

    Also @Dizzy1985 wikipedia tell lies as well especially since anyone can update most pages!

  37. anonymous April 9, 2010

    i see y she had that ugly ass dude as her love interest , it explains the lyrics too n y she looks a hot mess

  38. ciderkiss May 17, 2010

    I totally understand where Kiely is coming from and what she did was very brave eventhough aesthetically the song and the video was bad. I find it funny how Drake can make a song about making a “p**** whistle like the andy griffith theme song” and no one finds fault with that. Kiely is being more honest and in your face about it. So what?

  39. ciderkiss May 17, 2010

    By the way her song is stuck in my head. It’s like a guilty pleasure song. LOL!
