I can’t imagine being a celebrity, doing an interview and constantly being asked about somebody else. Kelly Rowland has done a pretty good job at keeping the smiles going and keeping it positive while people spend half of her interviews asking about Beyoncé or Blue Ivy, but for Ciara, people want to know about her drama. And she seems to have no problem answering any and all questions about it, when it might be best not to.
Sitting down with Cipha Sounds, K. Foxx, Rosenberg, and Ebro at Hot 97, we assume to do promo for her album Ciara being released this summer, the singer opened up about everything from why she’s being so public with her relationship with Future, to what the deal is with her beef with Rihanna, and why she loves her some Beyoncé.
When asked why she is being so forward in public with her feelings about rapper Future (the couple already has tattoos for each other), especially after claiming to be private about her love life (but what about Bow Wow and 50 Cent??), she said it’s because she’s ready to:
“I felt comfortable in this situation. I feel like you have to be comfortable because when you do step outside, you put yourself in a situation for everyone to have an opinion.”
As for what the deal is with going back and forth with Rihanna:
“I don’t have no beef…it is what it is. I don’t know what she’s on. Whatever she’s on, she can have it. I’m so cool, I’m so in my zone right now. It’s not that many of us doing what we do. It shouldn’t be anything but love. I feel like all of us and what we do is different anyway, so I couldn’t understand what the need to create drama would be, but I wish her well.”
And why despite the drama she’s had with some R&B divas in the past, she rides with Beyoncé:
“I think everybody can coexist. I have a lot of respect for Beyoncé. I think she’s just an amazing performer. She’s a beast. She’s worked hard to be where she is right now and she deserves all the respect.”
