Day Late, Dollar Short: The Problem With (Ciara’s) Lazy Stans

ci1 Day Late, Dollar Short: The Problem With (Ciara’s) Lazy Stans

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.

Watch This: Millie Jackson Is Amazing

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).

Quick Quotes: Ciara On Keri Hilson Comparisons

ciara black1 Quick Quotes: Ciara On Keri Hilson Comparisons

Ciara can’t bother having her tuck come undone discussing Keri Hilson’s foolishness, thanks.

There’s a very, very strong difference between myself and Keri. So I’m not even in that space to go there. I’m way past that mentally and creatively . . . It’s best that I give my fans what they want,” Ciara told XXL in their October issue when asked if Hilson had jacked her swag. “It would be crazy to say I haven’t heard that question before, but mentally I’m not even there . . . ”

“I honestly don’t feel like my spot has ever been taken. If you place Rihanna and Beyoncé aside of each other, you would be able to see clearly that there’s a difference . . . I’m just pushing to be the best in my own world.” Vibe via Necole Bitchie
