During their war of words last month Rihanna sarcastically shaded Ciara on her ability (or lack thereof) to book shows following the very public flop of her latest album. But with reports rapidly circulating that Bajan Billygoat has been advised by her handlers to cancel her US tour due to poor ticket sales, members of Team CiCi and their leader may all share one final tuck-undoing chuckle when the smoke clears.
Before stepping out for a night on the town with her Hollywood clone / paparazzi wrangler Ciara took her little piggies to the market for a quick pedicure. The most exciting experience — ever! Dear Lord, is Friday here yet?
Stans who consistently show their support for an artist on blogs but can’t be bothered to get up and make an in-store purchase slay me to no end. They would rather leave blood on the dance floor inside of comment sections than put their money where their keystrokes are. Instead, they set up Google Alerts anticipating criticism about their idols flopping around like fish out of water knowing that they played a prominent role in the failed mission.
It’s no secret Ciara’s last album went quadruple sponge roller. Maybe she relied on tuck defying dance moves on daytime talk shows too much to serve as promotion. Maybe the album itself is no good because she rushed the project to go bellhop for Kim Kardashian. Maybe she’s just uninspired at this point in her career.
In somber times as the present it’s nice to know that Rich of FourFour, who has been the Nettie to my Celie since 2005, can still make me smile with my heart.
I’m a little late to this one, but I’d be remiss if I didn’t touch on my favorite person on TV this week, soul singer Millie Jackson. Her life story took up an hour of TV One’s Unsung (basically my favorite show on TV now – did you see last week’s Full Force episode?!?). And what a story it was! She got her break by shit-talking some woman that was onstage at a concert she attended. She described her marriage to a bass player like this: “He was a decent cat, but he thought we were going to be Ike and Tina, and the record company didn’t sign Ike, it only signed Tina.” She gave Roxanne Shanté these words of advice: “You’ll be successful a lot longer for the nasty things that come out of your mouth than the nasty things you put in it.” She made fun of her own music, lamented her inability to pawn gold records and showed that at age 67, she’s still quite flexible (you can see that in the video above).
While the weather outside is frightful, the fire between Ciara’s crotch is so delightful.
During her time on The Wendy Williams Show to promote her new album, Basic Instinct, this morning CiCi chatted it up with Wendell about being a honorary Kardashian along with friend LaLa Vasquez, album delays, BET banning her “Ride” visuals, and more. Check out the full interview under the cut!
