Ciara Talks “Super C” + Promo Shot

Ciara After watching her first single, Go Girl, from her upcoming CD, Fantasy Ride, crash and burn, Ciara is taking a minute to regroup and hopefully come back stronger. The singer’s album has been pushed back to January of 2009 but promotion apparently goes on and a second video is already in the works. Ciara is also moving ahead with her modeling career. As many of you may remember, the singer signed with the Wilhelmina modeling Agency early this year and now one of her first “professional” shots has been released. The image to your right is said to be a photo of the singer, made available by the Wilhelmina. Ciara is shown wrapped in a mic and well… that’s about it.

There is nothing interesting about the photo and I’m not sure it’s even from Wilhelmina. It just doesn’t look like the type of photo you would see in a model’s portfolio. But what do I know- only time will tell what becomes of Ciara’s catwalk dreams.

And in other interesting CiCi news, the singer recently spoke about her alter-ego, Super C, who she says we can’t expect to learn more about on her upcoming CD.

“When I’m performing, I’m just having fun, letting go and not even trying to think too much about what’s going on. I know that I am here to perform and it’s time to rock it.

“You become another person. Another person inside of me totally surfaces when it comes to performing – Ciara, buh-bye, all right Super C. Super C is a character that people will learn more about on this record.

“That is my alter ego. Super C doesn’t hold back. She is definitely aggressive. She goes hard. Super C can do some magical and funky things. She works hard. She dances to the 10th power. She does everything to the 10th power.”

  1. 🙁 I’m afraid that this alter ego stuff is only going to hurt both Ciara and Beyonce’ . I AGREE that they both have the alter egos but to present them at the same time is probably not a good move.

  2. damn can you say swagger jacker? she basically said the same thing about “super C” that beyonce says about “sasha”. where the hell is the originality people?

  3. I kinda have to agree with some of you…………..why the whole “alter”ness of it all? JUST BE…

    Obviously, it helps to sell records and create interest so for a business move, yeah it works…

    A lot of artists ‘do this’; claim they ‘transform’ into someone else on stage…heck, even Janet has an alter ego called “Strawberry” she once confessed on Oprah…or something inane like that, but did she capitalize on it? Errr, nope. Wasn’t needed. I’m sure MJ turned into someone else too. I’m sure Madonna transmogrifies herself into the Queen of England when she performs…It’s all gimmicky and I guess it can be fun. I choose to ignore it and just focus on the music. I think that over-usage of ‘any’ gimmick will ultimately backfire on you though. *shrugs* Oh well…what the hey do I know, right?

    And I agree…this doesn’t seem like a portfolio shot, just a photoshoot shot for her album or something… Blah. Keep promoting though, Ciara. Keep yourself out there. Kudos and good luck. :brownsista:

  4. You’d think after Garth Brooks destroyed his career with this people wouldn’t try to split their personalities up. It rarely ever works…Well, I guess it does for Beyonce and Ciara because they seem naturally devoid of personality. So, I can believe they could convince some that they’re two people. I, for one, would prefer an intelligent artistic person who could reconcile their “selves”…You can’t be completely one thing and the other as these people claim…It’s just not so…Unless you’re delusional and don’t get that one persona is totally something you’ve been conditioned to believe is you. LAME.

  5. ciara is an attractive girl with no personality or style. she needs to find who she really is and stick to it, as far as style. her photo’s do nothing for me. i think the reason being is, i liked her style and look when she first came out. that image has stuck in my head. so when i see her overly made up, dressing sometimes to sexy, it seems fake. but if this is what she aspires to do, so be it. i wish her luck with her career. ciara had her own lane, now she falls in with the other overly glam-med up female celbs. remember what beyonce looked and dressed like in the beginning, before they made her look like a stepford wife. also alicia keys. alicia was straight up hood tomboy. she is now glam-med up all the time. some of them look great and some don’t. just my opinion

  6. She’s just getting back at Beyonce for using her song title.

  7. Ummm… This doesn’t look like a Wilhelmina shot at all… I know Wlihelmina could do a lot better than this! It’s almost as if they didn’t want to spend any time or energy on Ciara- like she got signed because someone knew someone…smh…

    I’ve always thought this altar ego thing was corny too… From T.I. to Beyonce to Ciara to many more. It’s not working because it’s overused.

  8. I think BEYONCE’S alter ego WORKS because it has been around since 2003. HER fans know who SASHA IS. I think BEYONCE’S ALTER EGO ALBUM was in the works for a long time.
    CIARA’S I dont know how it will work she seems like the same person on and off the stage.

  9. The alter ego thing is getting old. Just admit that you like shaking your :booty: . I think I can accept that more than saying it’s someone else on the stage or in the photo.

  10. @ Torya

    I agree! Beyonce doesn’t want/can’t admit to liking to skake her :booty: because of the type of judgement and criticisms it’ll garner on her character. So now she has to pretend like “it’s not her” and place it on “another being.” I blame cultural values and norms for making it unacceptable for women to freely shake their :booty: without consequence. Beyonce, we know you like to get down. And since you’re all about women’s empowerment, shamelessly own it, instead of pushing it off on “Sasha” 🙄

  11. I really love Go Girl and the video. And people who are great not only in their way of thinking and being, know that alter egos go along with the person. It is like when a child says they have an imaginary friend. That is actually themselves. Anyhoo, like WPC says people who are fans of Beyonce know who Sasha is because she has always talked about.

  12. See? This is becoming a problem amongst these music artist today. You never saw Diana, Janet, Madonna, Big Daddy Kane and whomever else coming up with an alter-ego!!
    It’s stupid! Obviously the ppl like an artist cause we think they’re good enough. I don’t think anyone sits around saying, “Now if only she could sound crazy and pretend she has a twin or another identity… THEN I’d like her and be a fan.” I’m sick of this multi-personality bs!

    All these album pushbacks is an indication that it’s tough out there for everyone. Consumers aren’t buying and some artist can’t convince us to. Only the strong will survive! I feel sorta sorry for these artist that ain’t doing so well on the charts. It’s like, one minute, you’re easily #1 on Billboard, the next minute… can’t even place on the damn thing. That’s gotta suk!

    Is Ciara suppose to be on sombodies runway or just some print ads like she’s been doing??
    She seems much too healthy for a catwalk.

  13. Who ever said this was shot from Wilhelmina is highly not tune in with reality, There is no form or shape that this is a high glam shot. Please stop the madness… Ciara what are you doing? In this picture? Damn Ciara are you okay? Everything she doing is now crasing in her face, This look like derek blanks shoot. I love him but him an ciara do not mix he do not bring whats in her out, For Ex the like a boy shoot where she in the chair. HOt!~ and i dont believe the men rumors but the photos was it! They brought the deeper side out of her, From the outside looking in. Ciara find a new team! These ppl eyes are shut and they just with you because you are ciara nothing more nothing less, A picture suppose to tell a million words, meaning if the cord wrapped around you look serious mad like now what! im coming!!! Not like you trying to sing no! Matter fact hit my name lol and email me ill join the team!
    God Bless

  15. It’ s not about copying anyone, It’ s about stopping to openly claim that they are ill, it’ s not funny , Trouble of the personality is a disease and if they had finish high school and got an education they would know that this whole act is ridiculous

  16. MRSJONES don’ t even start using the word originality and try to back up beyonce cuz that whole alter ego mess started with damita jo so stop it!

  17. @VOICE

    shut up and stop talking to me because i WASN’T TALKING TO YOU.

  18. Ciara Is Soooo Beautiful, I Love How She Is Not Afraid To Take Risk. Super C Is Out Of This World. Nobody In My Knowledge Has Ever Commanded The The Stage With This High Energy. Greatest Entertainer Alive. No Other Artist Even Come Close :bowdown: :bowdown: :bowdown:

  19. I know from that alter egos are a way to hide beyond one’ s “bad” actions, I think it is very foolish and immature to use “my other self”
    as “cover” to justify your actions, In some i just think Ciara and Beyonce and every other women that use are very very pitiful, unhappy and insecure women, Trust me we all have a very freaky dickey side I’ m first on the list of “look innocent but is naughty as all h-ll”
    it’ s all about owning to your actions embracing your good and bad and still feel like a winner and They obviously can’ t do that and it’ s sad…

    Never the less more power to her when i see how many idiots buy the sasha madness i can’ t help but think the world has gone crazy.

    @Voice
    We usually disagree but i know that’ s right, No one can call ciara a copycat because the first alter ego From our side was Damita jo and she was the truth!

  20. Can’t u just be yourself. I like ‘go girl’, when is it released in the UK.
    🙄 i don’t know. I wish her the best nonetheless.

  21. i wish everybody stop what this alter ego crap it just plan stupid thats how you are and thats it or you got a demond in you and thats what you tryin to tell us 🙁 but cici told people that early this your that.thats what her new album was goin to be like so cici aint swagger jack nothing yall didnt even know what bey album was going to be like

    @ VOICE & DARK SISTA yall do yall homework because damita jo is what all this crap came from

  22. I agree with ya’ll this alter-ego ish is getting ridiculous. Shoot everybody got at lest one, shoot I turn into a different person at work so what!!! 😆

    Gimmicks don’t get you ish, Ciara you should know that’s why your album got pushed back. :stop:

    Although I do like Go Girl, the video was wack but I still liked the song 🙂

  23. bee has been called sasha since 03 and janet came up with damita jo in 04 so how is she copying janet :loser:

  24. Lucky8
    damita jo the album was in 2004 damita jo the alter ego was there way back :loser: :loser:

  25. Hmmm….I’m kinda just on hush mode about the whole thing. I wish B an Ci the best in ’09. The only comment I have on Ciara is that I know she is capable of FAR more than that pathetic song. And shit, if she was gonna ride T-Pain train like the rest of Mainstreams garbage, she should have done so back when it was hot. T-Pains era is slowly coming to its end. Its no different than when Lil Jon stopped making hits. Crunk is dead, auto-tune driven R n’B is next. Its overdone. I just pray she doesn’t flop out the race. I’ve been a divoted fan since ’04, and it would truly crush me in the worst way. Fantasy Ride had better redeem itself soon. I’m still gonna purchase it because of all the brilliant songs on it. “Work” being one of my faves!!!! That’s actually what pisses me the hell off though! She’s got wonderful music on this cd, but released in my opinion, the weakest track! You know how some cd’s just have album filler tracks? That sounds like one of em’. Without a dought, not come back material. Pray for the queen y’all, pray for her…. she’s gonna need it. At least the video kicked ass…..

  27. The only thing I can say in defense of Bey is that years ago she said something about her alter ego Sasha. She mentioned the fact that she was shy and had been picked on as a child and she created this alter ego when she performs. It seems to me that Ciara is just trying to ride the coat tails and get some more interest in her music. Why are we just now hearing about ‘Super C’..not to mention the name is just dumb.

  28. Beyonce said that her cousin gave her that name “Sasha” years ago because the way she is on stage is different from her personality off stage, this isn’t new for her… Super C on the other hand… lol… it doesn’t fit Ciara.

  29. Alter- ego, don’t we all have one? Just think about how you act at a company party and how you act at your own party. Or, how you act sitting along watching TV, then how you would act if you had just started dating this person sitting next to you. The thing is we don’t go around sayin this mess and they are talking about it like it’s the new thing in town. Well, one of them was once said to be more than a woman when her career first started, maybe this where she is coming from. I JUST SAYIN. They both might need to seek professional help.

  30. I love Ciara, the super C. She can to be best of beyonce and a rival for the princess Rihanna. She can have a super-ego better beyonce.

  31. Uhm…. didn’t Ciara jock Aaliyah’s style when she first came out? Now she is jockin Beyonce too? This is ridiculous, this women needs to find her own brain. -_-‘
