Ciara says that, as an entertainer, comparisons to artists such as Beyoncé come with the territory.
“It’s entertaining to make artist comparisons. For instance, when I did the song ‘Like a Boy,’ they accused Beyoncé of following me with her song ‘If I Were a Boy,’ says the singer. “So let me say that I think B is dope, but the comparisons to her are funny to me and I have to laugh.”
ATL homegirl Monica shows Ciara some love at the star’s album-release party. Monica, who is gearing up for her own reality show on BET, made a guest appearance in Ciara’s video for her debut single, “Goodies.”
Ciara celebrates the release of her new album with a party in her hometown of Atlanta. Life has been somewhat of a dream for the Georgia Peach.
“Although I’ve always seen big things for my life, I still say, Wow, this is really happening; I’m on my third album,” says Ciara. “It’s truly a blessing to get a chance to be performer and do that all over the world and to win a Grammy, a true fantasy.”
A gorgeous Ciara gives the camera her best shot at recent event. The star was recently named one of People magazine’s 100 Most Beautiful and commented on rumors regarding her sexuality.
“I know I don’t look like a man, never did and never will. I don’t feel I need any validation,” she says. “The rumors and comments are all for entertainment so I never looked to anyone for validation.”
Atlanta native Ciara, who’s been dubbed the “Princess of Crunk & B,” is excited about the release of her third album, “Fantasy Ride.”
“I try a lot of different musical styles on this album,” says Ciara. “I hope that everyone will enjoy this.”
