In a one-on-one interview with VIBE Associate Music Editor Shanel Odum, the admittedly shy singer opens up about her love life and addresses rumors that she is dating Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson. In the feature, Ciara discusses the eclectic new sound of her upcoming third album, Fantasy Ride (LaFace/Zomba), and confirms her split from long-time producer Jazzy Pha. Other article highlights include:
Ciara on dealing with fame: “I was meticulous about the things I would share…But people are gonna say what they wanna say…They said I was a man! It doesn’t get any worse than that.”
Ciara offers dating advice: “You don’t have to sell yourself out. Take your time to get to know somebody before you involve the physical aspect…It’s just not the way to start off. It creates confusion. When you subtract those things, it allows you to focus more on who the person is.”
Ciara discusses working with new producers on her upcoming album: “You’re gonna get more attitude, more aggressiveness—everything is intensified…You get your sensual vibe. You’re gonna get the street, you’re gonna get the hood.”
I will be waiting for the scans for this one, Ciara is definitely getting more loose and I’m not mad at it at all. A Picture of the cover is below.
