Ciara’s New Single+Vibe Magazine Cover

Ciara’s third solo CD, Fantasy Ride, officially will be introduced to the world via it’s first single, Go Girl, which features vocals and production from rapper T- Pain. As many of you well know, several singles from Fantasy Ride have been leaked to net and as recently as last week several websites had confirmed High Price, a single that features Ludacris, as the official first single from the CD. However, we all know how quickly things can change and Go Girl, which has also been leaked online, has officially gotten the nod and will hit the airwaves in late September. You can view the cover for the single to your right- and Ciara has clearly chosen sex as the main theme for her new CD, and if you need anymore proof of that, you need only check out the cover of the October 2008 edition of Vibe Magazine.

Ciara graces the cover in her birthday suit and hey, she looks great. Ciara is coming with a new look and style and I love that. She is instantly creating a buzz around herself and that’s what all great artists do. And I gotta be real here for a second- this is what I like to see from artists. Rihanna upped her value with a new look and Janet and Madonna did the same so many years ago. A great makeover goes a long way and Ciara’s new team clearly knows that. Beyonce’s team should have taken notes. Coming back with that same old tired blonde wig just ain’t gonna get it this time.

Sorry, I just had to keep it real this time.

Update: A better cover pic is below and Vibe has christened Ciara “The Sexiest Singer Alive”. I wonder does the title come with a crown- lol ?

    ” stef you’re such a hater”

    Ciara?
    I don’t know wassup with the new “look” we’ll see I don’t like “go girl” i like “supernatural”

  2. Yeah it is but it will get play because it’s Ciara and she is new and hot. Keyshia Cole’s first single was bad too but it was Keyshia and so radio automatically played it based on her being hot and new.

    That Go Girl cover is damn hot though. Whoever styled it deserves a red star.

  3. JBL : true it looks like an cartoon yet its a real picture

  4. “Coming back with that same old tired blonde wig just ain’t gonna get it this time.”
    ” stef you’re such a hater”

    Ok, I expected that. People can’t take it sometimes when someone has an opinion different than their’s, which I feel is where your comment comes from. However, my posting track record on this site proves that I am far from a Beyonce hater. I have supported her tremendously and taken up for her in many instances. However, I don’t have to support or agree with everything she does and in this case, coming back with that same old tired look she has had for the past decade is something I don’t support. Switch it up a bit, she didn’t and I was disappointed to see her coming back looking as she did two years ago.

  5. Stephanie : i was being sarcastic girl
    see the quote “”

  6. I guess its ok for her to sale sex.. AND BE FULLY NAKED AT THAT

    Ok, I expected that too 😆

    But honestly I am not offended by it. After all, I am a Janet fan and we all know what a freak Janet is.

    Yes, she is technically naked but what do you see in each pic? Nothing. You would see what you see in those pics of more if she was a bikini.

    As for using sex to sell, who doesn’t do that?

    From Tina to now, sex and the female form have been used to sell music. We can’t separate a woman from her beauty so that is that.

    Good luck to Ciara, I hope she does well. But on another personal note, I think all the songs I have heard from her new CD stink.

  7. A minute of that torture was all I could take. This just further validates my decision of no longer listening to radio anymore. I now do my shopping on neo-soul to find the truly good, underground, artists; great music you don`t hear on mainstream radio. Blond wig or no blond wig these mainstream artists/music is not my cup of tea. They can come out on stage in their birthday suits if they desire, I just DON`T care. Beyonce, Teyonce, Leyonce, Ciara, Tiara, Diara, I just DON`T care. I long for the days of great/feel good music.

    MJ & The 80s forever!!!

  8. lol girl I got you
    i know you are not a hater
    i was anticipating what the stans will say because you know you’re a good or bad person according to what you say about their idol ^^

  9. “I long for the days of great/feel good music.” I’m with you

  10. i guess Brownsista want beyonce to pose nude. its not going to happen Beyonce don’t have to use gimmick to sell cds she’s a talent. We all know Janet Ciara Madonna and the rest cannot sing ,so they have to use gimmicks. Rihanna did not pose nude. what happen to Rihanna she matured and she’s comfortable with who she is forehead and all. after the magazine go into the garbage what is she going to do next ? the sex tape

  11. Beyonce don’t have to use gimmick to sell cds

    STOP F-CKING LYING if it wasnt for that blod hair, and those suggestive dance moves she would not be on top of her game [yes i said it] she would not have ruled the 2003-2006 era if her talent was the cause for her selling cds why does she have to perform half naked and act like a high class call girl whenever she performs? does alicia keys rings a bell like her or not she sold 800k with as i am just by sitting on the piano and singing inspiring song so stop f-ing lying

    Rihanna did not pose nude. what happen to Rihanna she matured and she’s comfortable with who she is forehead and all.

    I love rihanna but she is a gimmick too without the whole “bad girl” routine she was not shit so stop with all them lies!

  12. Me thinks Ciara looks hella sexy and provocative. Kinda like a throwback combo remix of Nona Hendrix and Judith Jamison. She’s accentuating her long and lean dancer’s body. No hate here. She looks great.

  13. I haven’t checked out the song yet, I’m almost afraid of the auto-tune madness that awaits but I do like Ciara’s nude shots. It’s tasteful and shows that she has a lot of confidence.

  14. “Beyonce,Beyonce, Beyonce” blah blah blah , every time there is a post about a celebrity, it somehow always refers back to Beyonce ! and yea malcolm, Im going to have to agree with Voice, her gimmick is that voluptuous image and blonde hair. people are always quick to stand up for celebrities but dont even know them well enough. As for Ciara, ermmmm im not feeling this one . It doesnt have any originality, but she looks nice.

  15. why are we in here discussing bee again? i’m wonder if homegurl knows how popular she is on the blogs

    as for cici, don’t like them shots at all

  16. Can anyone do a song without T-Pain (or Lil Wayne) breathing on the mic? AGREE

    why are we in here discussing bee again? i’m wonder if homegurl knows how popular she is on the blogs
    everyone that is someone gets talk about on blog can we say britney spears? just drop it wohoo

  17. @voice,

    once again, not reffering to you. i guess what i should have said was, i wonder if bee knows how popular she is on BLACK blogs. does that sound better? how about you stop analyzing my posts instead of telling me to drop it. nobody is forcing you to read my comments or go out of your way to comment on them for that matter

  18. I’ve never been a Ciara fan- just never got her or her point in the industry but the song is most def radio hotness… I don’t listen to radio so, whatevs 😐

  19. Okay order order in the court i say…mmmkay how am i gonna put my twocents in on this one. Okay here’s a start:
    1) I think the provactive poses are a bit much but at the same time a smart way to get people talking since outside of her relationship with 50 Cent she’s been under the radar lately
    2) Beyonce had her run and oooooh what a run it is. Ur talking to someone who owns every damn Destiny’s Child and Beyonce CD since Bills Bills Bills so quit with the defending before it starts. Beyonce is jus…how shall i say this overdone now. The tide has moved on, as it did with Mariah (sans Emancipation), Janet and those of her ilk. Does that discredit all that she has done before no. Does that make her any less talented…no. But honest to goodness im over her. she’s had an oversaturation in the industry and like day old turkey it jus doesnt tastes the same reheated. She got married, she went through all these changes and what…same ol vanilla. she’s pretty she’s blonde (or not) she can sang. God bless her but can we have a moment in music without Beyonce trying to conquer it. She’s had her run…its somebody else’s turn. If she wants to be a legend as she’s been quoted to say then God bless her but….yaaaawn next.
    Okay that was a bit long but yall get on my nerves with this beyonce can do kno wrong crap
    3) SEX SELLS…cars to candy. sex will always sell. If she figured its good for her image why not? But if the music sucks it jus sucks…naked or not.
    4) Ive always dug su’m bout CiCi if it was jus she kicks ass when it comes to dancing
    5) I am truly agreeing with smooth thug mainstream music sucks big money b*lls! Jill, Erykah, Amel those are the ladies in my CD changer. Visual music is something im not endorsing taking pretty pictures and being fashionable is a PART of being an artist i.e Diana Ross…but is shouldnt be ALL of it. Talent people what happened to that?
    6) Fighting over internet blogs is gay. Go to the library and read a book, register to vote, read ur children a bed time story, do a crossword puzzle…something! There are so many better things to do wit ur time people
    ps ive learned this the hard way…see a week ago on megan good’s blog
    Oh n steph i dig u standing up for urself and ur opinion. Does anyone kno the defintion of a forum, or free speech, or an OPINION for that matter. Geez…go read a book forrealz. All this computer blogging has turned peoples brains to mush.
    Be fly, be beautiful, be black, be blessed
    Peace

  20. Well….I might as well throw in my two cents. I don’t like when artists such as Ciara and Rihanna are compared to an artist like Beyonce. She is a much stronger vocalist than both of them combined, with that being said talent shines through a new haircut /color or nakedness any day.

    To further explain myself…Ciara is known for her dancing, Rih is known for her fashion sense. Beyonce is known for her singing and performing. She has never had a bad performance unlike Ciara (bad live vocals) and Rihanna (boring, no stage presence, and bad live vocals). It would be more accurate to compare Ci and Ri.

  21. Hott! love the pic and she seem more confident with her body now that she lost so much weight.

  22. I’m sorry but Ciara looks like a hooker with that money in her hand and booty shorts. I know many flip the switch to a sexy image to sell records, and I know I am going to stir up controversy for saying this but in a way its like “Upper class prostitution”. It seems that you really do have to SELL yourself or your soul in hollywood. I am so NOT made for hollywood. I just have to be myself 😐

  23. correction lola
    Beyonce is known for her big hip and bootylicious curves ask someone

  24. The VIBE cover is sexy, I’ll give her that. 🙂 Can’t listen to the song unfortunately. Good luck to her though 🙂

  25. Ciara looks good in the VIBE cover. Can’t hate a single thing I see – Beautiful girl, great skin, sexy eyes. Yes, yes, and yes. Girl has it going on in that pic.

    I’m not a fan of her music. But I don’t have to be a fan in order to wish this girl luck in the industry. Sex sells, always has, always will. Nothing new about being half-clad or even naked in a photo.

    As far as Beyonce, she sells sex like the rest – red heels, blonde wig and all. Can’t hate her for doing what she was trained to do. Sure, she moans in her tracks, freaks in her lyrics and shake her bootylicious rear on stage, but the chick can honestly sing. She is not the world’s best, but she is far from the worse.

  26. oh My wat size of shoe does she wear coz i mean that’s too kinda big/long watever anyway’s luvs the new look put the music i believe it aint new not breakin ground so i jst don know wat’s gonna happen but i love the chick i rember when she came out with Goodie everything was jst good untill evolutin i mean she gotta stop messin around Rihanna’s been doin her thing since Day 1 so i believe Sister CiCi has to 1,2 step back up the top!!

  27. i hate to see her go this far b/c some of the above posters are right everyone sells ass, even the i’m saving myself one’s sell it. but posing nude is another animal, it takes the focus off music and puts it somewhere else. i hope it works for her.

  28. She looks desperate and stupid. I predict Solange will be the next one to take it off. These talentless people should step to the side!

  29. @ Angela
    HAAA!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Dead. Girl you are soooooo right. Just because they are on a track doesn’t mean it is going to be an instant smash. As a matter of fact…last weekend in the car I was listening to my friends mix cd. T-Pain’s song ‘ Can’t Believe It’ was on. As the song is playing and Lil Wayne part in on…….. I just so happened to listen and I blurted,” WHAT THE HECK IS HE SAYING/TALKIN ABOUT?” Music these days………I’m tired of hearing those two voices 2. I suppor him and wish them the best, but when you run out of lyrics to say in a song, that’s a sign you need to chill out on the collabo’s

    I hate Ciara stooped this low for publicity. Sex DOES sell, but I thought she was better than that. I understand the whole growing up and changing, but this just takes the cake. It’s no where near fashion or high fashion. That’s vibe. What kind of message does she want to send to her fans. Maybe one day she will find her true identity.

    Beyonce sells just being Beyonce! She doesn’t need the gimmick. Her look over has become her signature. It has been proven to be successful. I think folks change up when what they have isn’t working for them.

    Umm, many artist wear weaves and dance and are not international superstars! Beyonce doesn’t need gimmicks just solid music!

  32. I don’t see how Ciara has changed anything. All she did was take off her clothes. She is wearing the same hairstyle she worn so many times before including the last Vibe cover.
    Beyonce has a style or an image that works for her. She does not need to chop off her hair or do anything drastic. All she needs to do is keep making good music.

  33. I am not a big ciara fan but after i saw the cover i was very happy because cici remind me of madonna and janet jackson

    Yeah ciara can’t sing like Beyoring but bee can’t sing like like see all the singers that can hold a note la whitney

    If ciara is becoming a feminist la madonna janet we need that because i am so tire of the whole this is a rapper world thing

    What happen to
    Salt nPepa
    En Vogue
    Madonna
    Janet
    Tlc
    the leading ladies that rep the girls we can be strong and do us

    The only thing is this is a vibe cover and it just seem so unright

    Beyonce sells Sex tell me one song she has that make you feel emotions like you know her and you were he close friend none

    Upgrade you
    freakum dress
    get me bodied

    How bout
    Express yourself
    If
    shoop
    what it gonna be

  34. she reninds me of M I A in the colorful pic, and even tho the cover is a nude, its not revealing.
    i think she looks great!
    that said…ciara and t pain on vocals…not too sure about that :-/

  35. (continued)when i say its not revealing, i mean we’re only seeing arms and lots of leg, ya know. its provocative not slutty

  36. Honestly… I don’t know what to say about CiCi. In my eyes she will ONLY be nothin more than a pretty face & that’s about it. In other words imo the girl has NO singing talent… sure she can dance her tail off, but that’s where the buck stops. There are MANY no talented singers out there. They make a great beat or melody & they can get away w/ a hit. But anyone who knows what TRUE singing ability, i.e. Vesta, Luther, Miki Howard, Al Green, Aretha, Alexander Oneal, & etc, carries knows that they have been short changed. In this list of the MANY no talented singers out there today, I rank Ciara second to last, Cassie comes in @ dead last. When the girl performed on last years BET awards, you could barely hear what she was saying b/c she was dancing so hard.

    It doesn’t really matter what approach she will take b/c the vocals are always weak. Yes I LOVED “Promise”, but ONLY b/c I was having flashbacks Of ole skool Prince lol. I am quite sure that on this album she has made those catchy beats & songs that we can’t sit still too & she will more than likey have great success. But as I mentioned before those of us who know what TRUE singing abilities hold, will come in again knowing we’ve been bamboozled 🙁 .

  37. I swear “the truth” ”voice” and countless others on here are obsessed with Beyonce. The fact that she is even being discussed in this topic speaks for itself.

    Newsflash to you psycho Beyonce haters. NOT EVERYONE LIKES MEANINGFUL SONGS.

    Upgrade U
    Freakum Dress
    Get Me Bodies
    are all being played on the radio a lot more than songs like “in my mind” by heather headly.

    Obviously MILLIONS of people love Beyonce music the way it is. The radio always plays a Beyonce song new or old every day so criticizing her songs is a waste of time because people request her songs and millions have no problem with her songs.

    Also how can you say Beyonce HAD a good run? You are truly delusional. Beyonce HAS a good run and is still running. I dont see Alicia Keys, Rihanna, Ciara, or any of these other black female artists in Forbes or being talked about on a regular basis like Beyonce.

    And I wish Alicia stans would stop acting like she is some great vocalist or a saint because she is sleeping with a married man and she strains her voice. She is also not mainstream and people dont think about her that much.

    At the end of the day, Beyonce is richer,more popular,and more successful than any other black female artist today. Like her or not, she is what Tina/Dina were in their day. She is the standard for black female artists today. Rihanna,Ciara,Mya,Ashanti,etc they all get compared to her. Anyone who thinks Beyonce is not the top black female artist of this generation is in denial.

    men lie women lie numbers dont.

  38. Some people stay on Akeys jock. Isn’t she suppose to be some type of homewrecker?

  39. @Deedra

    You are so right… in the colorful photo CiCi does look like M.I.A. 🙂

  40. *SIGHS*
    Im sooooo tired of the old dissin the NEW!!!
    God!!! The music is NOT for you!!! Its for the NEW!!!
    Just like the older ppl thought Jackson 5 was just another bubblegum pop group!!! And they turned out to be LEGENDS!!!

    Anyways “Go Girl” is SUPER HOT!!! Even though I dont too much like T-Pain, his part in “Go Girl” and his song “Cant Believe It” are HOT!!!

    And why do ppl act like singing is the ONLY form of talent??? Yess beyonce can “sing”, but that dont mean shes better than everybody else!!! Ciara can sing and she CAN DANCE!!! And dancing is a form of talent which Ciara, undoubtedly, have!!! So why do ppl say she dont have talent??? And for the person who said they dont care for Ciara, why would you click a link that says “CIARA”??? Oh the contradictions……

    Anyway Ciara looks like a BEAUTIFUL SEXY ANGEL in the pics!!! Im IN LOVE with them!!!

  41. I think these young women need to keep some of their clothes on so there true talent can shine! I mean geesh we as women and young girls have always been exploited and have just soaked it up and banked the check. But at the end of the day when you look at yourself in the mirror is it you looking back or what the industry has made you. I love Ciara and Beyonce and Rhi has definitely grown on me, but I’d rather they show a little more class and a little less trash. Oh well it’s the American Pimp Game- Real Talk. When they look back at everything they did for fame I hope they can live with it, money and all. Just my opinion – When I know singing comes from your heart not your goodies and there is a beauty to it and it looks like its just fading away. I am currently developing a young artist and I am going to do everything I can to showcase her unbelievable talent which is her greatest asset.
    Stand up for something or you will fall for anything-Obama 08

  42. manman81133 is right. i mean sheut or hooker than what they used to cll her and as everyone noes they used to callher a man. first of all she dont look like a man in any shape or form nor has she ever. if rihanna did something like this yall would keep your mouths shut right? EXACTLY. always hating on a strong sista, none of ya’ll can do what she does every day

  43. besides like manman81133 said and for the ppl who says they dont give a damn about her why ya’ll hear on this link. ya’ll juss haters i love all the photos and cici need to keep on doing wat she doing plus she is more talented than rihanna and beyonce any damn way aha!! nobdy can put it down like cici

  44. Ciara is looking AMAZING in those pics. I love her, and i was kinda dissapointed when i heard that her new movie is going straight to dvd. Oh wells, i wish her luck with her new album.

  45. INSECURE: her breast implants, quoted saying she wants to be taller so she wears platforms 24/7, attention by posing nude and dating a gorilla

  46. Thats really whorish, especially with the hooker heels. Ciara, her manager, and the people at Vibe do not understand what “tasteful” nudity is. Her album must not be very good since she needs to stir up attention this way.

  47. Cece is suing Vibe, because she says that her clothes were air brushed off for that cover. If true, I wonder how much was she wearing. If it is true, Vibe must have the most stupid editors in the world.

  48. That is so false. PH has never posted about Ciara before and only did it now because it is such a huge story in the search engines and he wants in on it. Ole boy just trying to infiltrate the black blog market.

  49. I have the issue and it’s quit boring I like cici she is really cute but No! 🙂
