1) Between trolling, attacks, and general off-topicness, this thread has been derailed enough. Time to get back on track now...
2) On that note, congrats to Ciara on her engagement to Russell!
What's going on to talk about? She isn't doing anything and probably won't be since she just got engaged & left her label and has the law suit. She claims her album is in its early stages so no video or interviews right now, this thread will be dry AF for a while.
The lawsuit is over future setteled for an nda about a 5 days before russell proposed to ciara. And we should be hearing news about her label this summer at the latest. Because i think she wants to get married drop an album and tour and have a baby all within the next 3 years so we shall see how everything plays out.
WHO THE f**k IS MANAGING HER AND WHERE WERE THEY TO TURN THE "JACKIE" ERA AROUND? She dropped "Oh Baby", FINALLY left Epic, & now she's covering magazines and hosting the Billboard Awards. New music is needed now but I could see the need to wait as well. Get good in the GP eyes first, draw up some REAL excitement. I'm curious as where they're going to go this time?
I think for her image now,she should create this sense of mystery like Beyonce or Alicia K., stop operating like you're a new artist and f**king demand respect. She has a string of hits and when it comes to performing, she's the ONLY girl in the industry that can go toe to toe with Beyonce and the energy of her last tour proved that. Also, get into other business that can pay for major touring and videos. She keeps trying to make albums when she needs to make moves. Pop music is fickle, urban music is at a rise right now, she keeps saying she wants to incorporate pop but if you want to be on top again, go back to urban because that's what ppl want from. "Paint It Black" & "Read My Lips" & "Live It Up" was a good mix between the two, STAY THERE!!!!!!!
I'd love to be surprised with a new song - Ci feat. Luda or Luda feat. Ci, doesn't matter. I'm not expecting anything, but I can't help but feel that it would be a lost opportunity.
I would like a mash up of Oh/Ride but Ride may be to a reach. If a performance is n the makings, it'll probably be Oh. New music is unlikely and I really for some reason don't want her to do new music here. It seems way to early, now once Essence rolls around, I'll expect new music. That stage will be crazy, Ciara always kills on major stages. Her theater tour set her up, I think she probably could be packed arenas during "Ciara" era, definitely not after Jackie tho.
How can you doubt that two musical host will perform at the BILLBOARD awards.
Because it's happened before? And she just started working on the new album, I doubt she has a single ready to go. At most I can see them doing a fun dance number but nothing to new material.
Yes I agree with you that a singer might not or have to perform when hosting an award show but usually it's a singer who doesn't need to. I would think Ciara would want to try and get a new song out or at least sing a medley of hits. A poster also mentioned her not performing this year and get her foot in the door and perform next year. Is that guaranteed for Ciara??
It has happened before, especially with JLo and AMA's the years she didn't have era or music I don't think she performed but the following years she did. This is ludacris 3rd year hosting, if she builds a nice realtionship with them she can come back next year and use it as a chance for cross promotion. I hope she can become what Jlo is to the AMA's.
