Sista Sighting: Ciara in NYC

It seems like forever since we have seen Ciara or had any relevant news to post about her. Last I heard she was being wooed by L.A. Reid, who is now the head of a newly restructured Epic Records. Maybe that’s why the dance diva was spotted leaving her hotel earlier this afternoon. Word is she had a few meetings with label heads who hope to have her back in the studio and ready to release new music by early 2012.

Ciara’s last two album didn’t fare so well on the charts; however at only 25 years old, many think she still has a chance to rebound and get her career back on track.

I know if I was a part of Ciara’s team I would invest in a good choreographer. Though known for her acrobatic dance moves, Ciara to me just doesn’t pop as an overall dancer. She needs to bring in someone who can do for her what Tina Landon did for Janet Jackson and what Frank Gatson has done for Beyonce.

Gatson singlehandedly turned Beyonce into a dancer and someone who is now known for truly putting on a great show.

Ciara needs the same type of makeover. She has the talent- it just needs to be polished up a bit.

  1. I agree. Ciara is a talent, she just needs to revamp and begin not only with the choreography but her stage garb. She looks good here; love the shoes.

  2. Maybe Laurieanne Gibson? The Gaga collabs really boosted her appeal (or maybe she was big beforehand? idk). Her & Ciara seem like a good match.

  3. CIARA IS THE BEST DANCER EVER, NO ONE I MEAN NO ONE CAN DO IT LIKE HER, BEYONCE JUST JUMP ALL ROUND LIKE A WILD ALBUM BUT CIARA DO THE DAM THANG, PLEASE BELIEVE IT!

  4. Ciara obviously has dancing ability but you have to admit that it is a bit stale. She basically does the same street moves over and over again. They were cute in the beginning but it is just old now. I hate to use such an overused term,but she does have to STEP UP HER GAME.

  5. @Lisa, rockstars jump around like “wild animals (which is what you prob meant)”, what’s your point? It’s effective and makes me wanna thrash about like a rockstar too. Bey is a rockstar.

  6. She looks great here! Wasn’t Ciara signed to a modeling agency? She can def work some clothes with her lean physique and great legs!

    I think the main issue with Ciara is her vocals- they’re whisper thin and while they got her through Goodies/Evolution there are only so many R/B-ish songs you can make. Jennifer Lopez is also the same, however her latest album was more dance/club beats with uptempo music.

    IMO- Ciara is one of those artists where you have to see her video to like her songs.

    @Kanyade – I agree- she has been using the costumes from her older songs, I think she needs to update the look.

    All in all , she is a positive girl and I wish her all the success.

  7. @Lisa- Really? What does Beyonce have to do with a Ciara post? Kindly find a Beyonce post to express your dissatisfaction with her ‘wild album’.

    And not to be condescending, but Beyonce has achieved a level of success to where a comparison to Ciara inconsequential.

  8. I dont know what the heck some of yall are smoking but you all are high as hell if you think Beyonce is a better dancer. I am sorry but that is far from the truth. Now I normally dont get into these Beyonce debates because they BE-YAWN redundant but Ciara is the reason Beyonce stepped up her dancer skills. Sorry Ciara is better dancer then probably all the girls we just havent seen her lately at her best.

  9. @Blacksista, ummmmmm who said Beyonce was a “better” dancer? Ppl have said that her dancing, albeit great, has become “stale” and needs a “revamp”, but I don’t see anyone saying that Ciara is lesser than Beyonce when it comes to dancing…so whatCHU smokin’?

  10. @the other lol- I think there needs to be some sort of reading comprehension test for this site.
