Kiely Williams is out with the music video to her new single ‘Spectacular’, off the former 3LW/Cheetah Girls member’s debut solo album, out later this year. The racy video, in contrast to her time with the Disney girl group, has received a fair degree of criticism, prompting Williams to address the complaints.
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.
