Ciara Wows the CFDA + Rumored Music News

CFDA And Vogue 2013 Fashion Fund Finalists Celebration

How amazing has Ciara been looking lately?

The newly engaged pop star made an appearance over the weekend at this year’s CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Finalist Celebration.

Ciara wore a white pants suit designed by Calvin Klein, and accentuated the look with gold bangles by Azemia. Via a post on Instagram, CiCi called her look “Tomboy Chic” and thanked Calvin personally for putting it together for her.


And for those of you wondering what Ciara has been up to besides attending fashion shows and walking red carpets; well, the answer is, not much.

Though she announced plans for a tour earlier this year, nothing has come to fruition and we’re already halfway through November.

Those five videos she previewed during her week long hosting stint on BET’s 106&Park have also not been unveiled.

So, what’s CiCi waiting for? Well, rumor has it all promo for the album has been halted. “Ciara” the album has so far shifted less than 200,000 copies and has completely fallen off of Billboard’s top 200 albums chart.

At this point, Epic is rumored to be cutting their losses and leaving any future promo in the hand, and POCKETS, of Ciara and her management.

  1. Just realize how pretty Ciara actually is. She looks just like her mom too.

  2. Are you guys shocked? Her last album sold like 60,000 copies in the first seek. Second week sales always fall. Rarely do albums that start off that poorly rebound and do well.

    I’m not shocked those video she shot won’t come out either because they all looked cheap and like they were shot on the same day.

    Music wise I don’t see Ciara coming back. She is a lazy performer who hasn’t changed a bit since she hit the scene in 2004.

    When you are on the comeback trail you must twice as hard. Ciara appears to be working hard, but only at being fashionable, not a great singer or performer.

    JEALOUSY IS BISHES NAMED BHONEY AND WENDY. THE DEVIL IS A LIE.

    CIARA HAS MORE ACCOMPLISHMENTS AND GREAT PERFORMANCES THAN EVERYONE OF THE BELOW.

    BEYONCE – DIDN’T HAVE THE GUTS TO RELEASE A CD IN 2013

    RIHANNA – HAS THE WORSE STAGE ACT IN THE BUSINESS AND NOTHING BUT HYPE

    NICKI MINAJ – NO TALENT AT ALL. HER SUCCESS IS SO BOGUS AND MANUFACTURED.

    KELLY ROWLAND – SEEMS TO HAVE SLEPT HER WAY ON TO X-FACTOR, AND RECORD SALES AND TOUR TOTAL FLOP

    TAMAR – ONLY EXISTS BECAUSE OF VINCE’S MONEY. CIARA COULD SLEEP HER WAY INTO A CAREER, BUT HAS THE INTEGRITY AND TALENT, AND HARD WORK TO NEVER DO THAT.

    THE FOLLOWING TALENTED GIRLS ARE NOT EVEN ON THE MAP:
    KEYSHIA COLE
    MONICA
    BRANDY
    EVEN JHUD
    CHRISETTE
    JANELLE MONAE HAS NO HITS I KNOW OF
    ALICIA KEYS

    CIARA HAS ACCOMPLISHED MORE THAN 99% OF HER PEERS ON HALF THE BUDGET, AND SHE DID A LONG STINT IN VEGAS OF CLUB TOURS. SO SHE HAS BEEN TOURING.

    SO STFU JEALOUS HATERS WITH YOUR LIES.

    HER STAGE PERFORMANCE IS THE ONLY ONE THAT GENERATES MAJOR ENTHUSIASM.

    SHE IS A TREND SETTER.
    SHE COINED THE PHRASE, “SUPER TURNED UP”

    SHE STARTED THE BLONDE BOB THAT EVERYONE TRIES TO WEAR BUT NO ONE CAN LOOK AS GOOD AS HER IN IT. AND THE TOP KNOT CAME BACK OUT WHEN SHE WORE IT IN HER VIDEO.

    HER FASHIONS SELL OFF THE RACK.

    AND NOW SHE IS HAPPILY ENGAGED AND EVERY JEALOUS LONELY BISH IS TAKING POT SHOTS AT HER.

    JEALOUSY SUCKS. AND EVERYONE WHO ENGAGES IN SUCH PETTY BEHAVIOR IS A REAL LOSER OF THE WORSE KIND.

  4. Diana honey, I don’t even get into all the name calling – it’s just my opinion – which everyone is entitled to. I have no words for your other comments 🙂 too funny.

  5. @Diane, it is apparent you are a Ciara fan, and there is nothing wrong with that Love. But, to compare her to some of the artists you mentioned above really doesn’t amplify you point, especially Beyonce, AK, and Rih Rih. Case in point, you say she has been doing club tours in Vegas (key word: clubs), well Beyonce is about to do performances at the MGM arena in Vegas and the Staples Center in L.A. next month. Can Ci Ci fill those venues by herself (when it comes to performing in arenas she has only opened for other top artists)? Also, have any of her album sales topped Beyonce, Ri Ri, or AK? Your comments are equivalent to comparing Kwame Brown to Lebron James, Blake Griffen, or Kevin Durant Madame. To be fair, is Ciara a noble artist? Yes! The issue is her material and image is not capturing the attention of the over 30 year old crowd, nor the under 25 year old crowd. She is just a gorgeous lady and dancing machine we watch for 3 minutes on U-Tube, BET, or MTV (“Ride” is still my favorite video) and keep it moving. You are right Dear, the devil is a lie, but the facts are the facts when it comes to Ciara….

  6. Diane sounds like a darn nut. Another crazed fan with their self esteemed wrap up in the success of a celebrity. Paging a life for this chick… STAT !

  7. And bhoney u r just a big liar who tells lies so ridiculous that even a blind man can see through them, but why do you do that? what is your motive if it isn’t to try and hate away the best entertainers so that your no talent rih rih might have a chance to shine.

    OldPopEyeSalt IT TAKES ENORMOUS AMOUNTS OF PROMOTION MONEY TO BE NUMBER ONE AT ANYTHING. I MEAN MILLIONS UPON MILLIONS. JAYZ AND BEYONCE HAVE POOLED RESOURCES MADE YEARS AGO BEFORE THE COLLAPSE OF THE ECONOMY, AND THOSE FOOLS WILL SPEND IT ALL JUST TO STROKE THEIR EGOS, TO GIVE A FALSE IMPRESSION OF BEING ON TOP. BEYONCE IS A COMPLETE FOOL FOR ALLOWING JAYZ TO SPEND THEIR MONEY ON RIHANNA. A WOMAN SHE OBVIOUSLY HATES AND IS NEVER SEEN WITH. WHY DOES SHE DO THAT, IS THE QUESTION? AND WHY DID SHE MARRY A MAN WE HAVE NEVER SAW HER VOLUNTARILY TOUCH IN PUBLIC?

    MEN ALL OVER THE WORLD WOULD PAY CIARA BILLIONS TO BE IN HER BED, BUT CIARA HAS INTEGRITY. SHE WORKS HARD FOR WHAT SHE GETS, AND CHOOSES NOT TO TAKE THE EASY WAY OUT THAT EVENTUALLY LEADS TO DESTRUCTION, AND THAT IS WHY I LOVE HER.

    IF YOU HAD ANY INTEGRITY, YOU’D LOVE HER TO.

  8. @DIANE- Uh you do know that ANYTHING Rihanna gets paid for Jay Z & Beyonce gets paid for, right…

  9. Diane, my integrity is not based on me loving Ciara Ma’am. My integrity is based on how I support and encourage young people in the community, Sailors, and Marines (I’m in the military) I come in contact with, and respect my elders who have paved the way for others to succeed. It seems you are a Diehard fan of Ciara Dear but your comments toward other Black celebrities doesn’t make sense. Sense you went that route about Beyonce I’ll have some fun with you. I don’t have an issue with her marrying Jay-Z because she is marrying a dude that is making money and establishing ventures like she is. But, it seems your girl Ciara is doing things just to stay in the public eye, both socially and “career” wise. Socially we have seen her bounce from Lloyd, Bow Wow, 50 Cent, Ludacris, Amar’e, Trey Songz, Cam Newton, and now Future (I’m going to be honest, an old Fart like me didn’t know this. My Sailors here at work read your response and are helping me with this portion of my reply). With that said it doesn’t seem like she is the top model of “integrity” you paint her to be over others Dear. Anyway, getting back to her career because who she dates is nobody’s business, she is struggling to keep her head above water since she debuted in 2004. She is not selling albums on a Beyonce, Ri Ri, AK, or a Janet Jackson level. She is not selling out arenas like these same ladies (You are correct, it does take millions of dollars of promotion to tour an arena. But, her record label and promotion/sponsor companies know she is not on that level). At this stage of her career she is doing whatever she can to stay in the public-eye (She pops up for fashion week, the CFDA, People’s Choice Awards, Vegas spots, overseas spots, small movie cameos, 106 & Park, etc, etc). Her appalling film production of the long running Black musical “Mama, I want to Sing” didn’t help her career. And now you have silly rumors on whether or not she is pregnant. In summary, she is not what you are making her to be. Once again, she has to be more than a dancing machine to make it in the business Love; she has to change her material.

    Peace, Grace, and Glory to Everyone ….!!!

  10. @OldPopeyeSalt, thanks yo ufor you service “old Fart” :). You know you need to stop messing with Diana though, Ha Ha!

    @Diana, you need to grow up and stop being such a crazed fanantic girlfriend. Ciara is not a good artist, period. She is just a good performer whos time has come and gone. Wake Up and get a life already!

  11. @OldPopeyeSalt, guess I cant type this morning. “Thanks for your service “old Fart” 🙂 … Ha Ha!!

  12. @OldPopeyeSalt Stop wasting your time trying to teach someone who wants to be ignorant to the facts about her hero. Go defend the country “old Fart” …

    @Diane Bhoney is right, you have some serious issues. go get you a life and stop worrying about some below average artist whos albums can’t go platinum, even with the help of groupons.

  13. NO ONE IS LOW ENOUGH TO KICK A PERSON WHEN THEY ARE DOWN, LIKE U CLAIM CIARA IS. YOU HAVE TO HAVE REAL JEALOUSY/HATE TO WORK TRIPLE TIME TO DIG UP INFORMATION THAT HAS NO VALUE.

    WHY DO YOU HATE EXCELLENCE?

    WHY DO YOU HATE BEAUTY?

    WHY DO YOU HATE A HARD WORKER?

    WHY DO YOU HATE A PURE HEART?

    WHY DO YOU HATE A WOMAN FOR DOING NORMAL DATING, BUT LOVE WHORES WHO HAVE DONE MORE ONE NIGHT STANDS THAN ANYONE CAN COUNT, AND BRAGS ABOUT IT?

    MOST OF ALL WHY ARE YOU FOOL ENOUGH NOT TO KNOW THAT THE SLOGAN,

    “TAKE BACK OUR MUSIC”

    IS ABOUT WHITE PEOPLES’ PLANS TO USE THE NO-TALENT BLACKS TO TAKE BACK THE MUSIC, AND PUT ALL BLACK PERFORMERS BACK ON THE CHITLIN CIRCUIT LIKE WE WERE JUST 40 YEARS AGO???

    SUPPRESSING OUR MOST TALENTED, AND UPLIFTING OUR LEAST TALENTED, WHO POSE NO COMPETITION FOR WHITE ARTIST, IS EXACTLY HOW THEY ARE GOING TO ACHIEVE THEIR GOAL.

    IF EVERYTHING YOU CLAIM IS TRUE, THERE WOULD BE NO REASON TO MENTION CIARA AT ALL. THERE WOULD BE NOTHING TO SAY BECAUSE THE PROOF IS IN THE PUDDING, AND NOT ON YOUR LIEING LIPS.

    YOUR DIRTY WISHES FOR HER LIFE HAVE NOT COME TRUE, AND WILL NEVER COME TRUE BUT YEAR AFTER YEAR YOU CLAIM VICTORY AND YEAR AFTER YEAR, GOD’S ANGEL MAKES BEAUTIFUL MUSIC AND GIVES GREAT PERFORMANCES! LOL THE DEVIL IS A LIE.

    EVERY ENTERTAINER GOES THROUGH UPS AND DOWN. MICHAEL JACKSON HADN’T HAD A HIT IN YEARS BEFORE HE DIED. MICHAEL WAS POISED TO BRING NE-YO, CIARA, AND ONLY THE BEST ON HIS TOUR.

    HER ACT IS THE BEST IN THE BUSINESS. SHE WILL ALWAYS BE IN THE PUBLIC EYE, AND THERE IS NOT A THING U CAN DO ABOUT IT. SHE WILL ALWAYS HAVE FANS AROUND THE WORLD. SHE IS IN SOUTH AFRICA RIGHT NOW.

    SHE WILL ALWAYS BE WATCHED BY TRILLIONS IN HER VIDEOS BECAUSE SHE IS MAJOR EYE CANDY. IF THEY PAID HER FOR EVERY VIEWING AND LISTENING OF HER VIDEOS, SHE’D BE A BILLIONARE MANY TIMES OVER.

    I LIKE YOUR COMMENTS BECAUSE THEY MAKE WINNERS WORK HARDER, AND BECOME BETTER AND BETTER SO KEEP THEM COMING, AND CIARA WILL EVEN OUT TOP THE BEST PERFORMANCE ON TV IN 2013 – HER BET PERFORMANCE THAT LEFT EVERYONE SPEECHLESS.

  14. @OldPopeyeSal You told the truth the whole truth and nothing but the truth. lol

  15. @Diane You are the one that is bringing up information that has absolutely no value when it comes to Ciara. Furthermore, you are talking about “Take back our Music” but your responses have done nothing but s**t on other Black artists; artists who are more talented, relevant, can actually sing, and go platinum/multi-platinum in their record sales. Even Michael Jackson still went platinum at the low point of his career. Ciara is still in the public-eye because the record company is trying to recoup as much money as they can from promoting her poor-selling album. Lastly, if she is GOD’s angel that makes beautiful music why is it she has to shake her tail-feather in 99% of her videos? It’s because her voice can’t carry a note to keep the consumer’s attention. You are way out in left field !!!!

  16. At least she aint twerking and jerking like fools who cant dance.

    She certainly makes beautiful enough music to capture your attention. LOL LOL You cant get enough of her like most of the world.

  17. Ciara’s had a damn good 2013: Her Mike Will-assisted track “Body Party” launched her back into the R&B conversation, her self-titled album hit #2 on Billboard, and she got engaged to our favorite warbling rapper, Future. With a whole lot to celebrate, Ciara spoke to GQ about about her new club-ready single “Overdose”
    GQ: This year’s been great for you. Your new album, Ciara, was a hit and “Body Party” went Gold—it’s one of my favorite tracks this year.
    Ciara: It’s one of those songs that happened fast, because it has such a sweet vibe. I can’t even lie, when we were mixing it, I was listening to it over and over like a fan. I don’t like using obvious samples, but it felt right—I couldn’t ignore the track the way [producer] Mike Will flipped the sample of “My boo.” It’s one of those songs a girl can sing to her man and where guys don’t have to feel too cool to slow dance with your girl.

    GQ: And you’ve just released your new single, “Overdose.”
    Ciara: The song’s got a throwback ’80s vibe with a modern twist; I think that’s unexpected. It’s more a product of my experimentation—it has a vintage-y feel, but I feel like everyone can love it. And what’s better than to dance to the feeling of love? The song’s about embodying that energy.

    GQ: Speaking of dancing, you’re one of the best. How would you advise the GQ guy?
    Ciara: Go with the flow; don’t overthink it. If you’re a head-nod kind of guy, nod your head. If you’re a guy who likes to coast out and rock or sway, just do that. Whatever you do, don’t get out there and try do something you haven’t practiced. Do what shows your style and vibe—let me catch that without you trying to show me anything. I’m kind of okay to just chill. Keep it simple and let the girl guide you a little bit. If you can do that, I think you’ll be all right.

    GQ: One more GQ-centric question: What are your style dos and don’ts for guys?
    Ciara: I love when people have their own creative vision, when a person stands out and tries different things. I also think less is more. A T-shirt and some Balmain jeans or even just simple jeans can still look nice—it can be powerful, too. There’s nothing better than when a man is in tune with who he is. I believe a person’s style is an expression of who you are—way more than dancing. And confidence is everything. Confidence is what makes that simple white tee and jeans look good.

  18. @Tina, how did she have a hell of a year when the result is still her album didn’t reach gold or platinum? I agree on the confidence comments, but this is a business and she has to sell records.
