Ciara Poses for J Magazine

Ciara is featured in J Magazine’s recent ‘Neo-Feminist Issue.’ ‘J’ is an independently published bi-annual fashion, art and celebrity magazine helmed by freelance fashion consultant James Worthington DeMolet.

Worthington recently interviewed Ciara when he attended the private listening party for her upcoming fifth solo album, simply titled ‘Ciara’ and due out July 9th.

Ciara talked about a multitude of topics, including the last minute decision to include ‘Body Party’ on the album. According to CiCi the ‘Ciara’ album originally had only one ballad. It was the singer’s boyfriend, rapper Future, who reportedly told her she should rethink that decision.

Future’s instincts paid off because ‘Body Party’ has gone on to become Ciara’s highest charting single since 2009’s ‘Love Sex Magic with Justin Timberlake.

Ciara Rises to the Top

BODY PARTY IS A HIT

The release of Ciara’s sexy video for her single ‘Body Party’ has helped catapult the song on this week’s various Billboard charts.

‘Body Party’ officially makes its Hot 100 debut, clocking in at a very impressive #35. According to Billboard this is Ciara’s highest charting single since 2009’s ‘Love, Sex Magic, which’ peaked at #10.

‘Body Party’ also makes great strides on Billboard’s R&B and streaming charts. The song is the #1 most streamed R&B record, #10 most streamed record overall and jumps fourteen spot to land at #2 on the R&B songs chart. It would be great to see CiCi take the #1 spot but with that position being held by the evil that is Justin Timberlake (Suit & Tie ft. Jay-Z), I don’t see it happening anytime soon.

Ciara tweeted about the success of ‘Body Party’ yesterday, thanking her longtime fans, while acknowledging that the trek back to pop relevancy hasn’t been easy.

Ciara Sees the Future

CIARA, WAKE UP NO MAKE-UP

The track will be reportedly be featured on the rapper’s ‘Future Presents F.B.G: The Movie’ mixtape, due out January 15th.

Ciara Sets ‘Sorry’ Release Date

Ciara fans have got to be happy right about now.

After what seems like a lifetime, the dance diva has finally stepped forth announcing a release date for the video to her new single “Sorry.”

According to a message posted to Ciara’s Twitter page, the video will premiere this Thursday via BET’s 106 & Park.

And just in case you’re still a bit skeptical… she included a few screencaps from the finished product.

Ciara Announces New Album

During an online chat to promote her new movie “That’s My Boy,” Ciara revealed news about her upcoming album.

Tentatively titled “One Woman Army,” the singer’s fifth CD is scheduled for a late summer release and will be preceded by “Sweat,” the debut single, which should hit the airwaves in early June.

“One Woman Army” will be Ciara’s first album under the tutelage of L.A. Reid and his newly restructured Epic Records.

After having her last two albums, 2009’s “The Evolution” and 2010’s “Basic Instinct” fail to live up to sales expectations, Ciara parted ways with Jive Records which had been her home since 2004.

As for what fans can expect from “One Woman Army,” Ciara says she simply plans to “return to her roots.”

As for “That’s My Boy,” expect it to hit movie theaters on June 15th.

Ciara Resurfaces

Ciara quickly became the talk of the internet earlier today when images of her in a wheelchair appeared online. The 25-year old dance diva was spotted last night wearing a cast on both feet as she was wheeled into the ‘2011 Roll Over Hunger Charity and Skate Jam’ in Atlanta, Georgia.

Though the singer did not give an explanation for her condition, rumor has it she may have had some sort of corrective surgery in response to hurtful comments made online about the appearance of her feet.

At the time Ciara brushed off the the criticism via Twitter, however no one really knows how deeply those comments may have truly hurt her.

Whatever the case, I hope she’s up and on her feet soon.

Ciara Kicks Off Summer Tour

Ciara kicked off her summer beach tour last night, performing at Finnegan’s on the River in Miami, Florida.

As previously reported, Ciara, along with Taio Cruz, has signed on to headline “The Radio Mailboom Boom Station Invasion Tour,” a 10 city trek that will see the pair performing at beach and pool parties across the country.

As expected, Ciara gave a high energy performance of her catalogue of hits, but in my opinion, should probably hire a new choreographer and completely revamp her style.

Plus, with rumors of her possibly joining L.A. Reid at the newly restructured Epic Label Group, a total creative make over is probably in order.

Check our her performance of “Promise” below.

Ciara Says She Has No Idea What Happened

While recently being interviewed about her new “Basic Instinct” album, Ciara was asked about the status of her movie “Mama I Want To Sing.” If you all remember, we first reported on Ciara landing the role back in 2007 and the film was suppose to be released the following year in 2008. However, two years later, the movie has still not been released… not even on DVD as rumored.

According to Ciara, she knows as much about the status of the movie as we do. Here’s what she had to say:

Well, it’s funny because at this point, I couldn’t tell you all the details to be honest with you. I’m sure it’ll definitely come out whenever everything is finalized and when it’s supposed to.”

Despite the hang-up, Ciara says she enjoyed working with her co-stars Hill Harper (CSI: NY), Billy Zane (Titanic), and Patti Labelle. “It definitely was a fun experience” she said. Ciara also revealed that more movies would be in her future, but declined to give details.

Ciara’s Basic Instinct is out now. Her first foray into films, the MTV produce dance classic “All You’ve Got,” can be purchased on DVD.
