Ciara Set To Open For Jay-Z+Preggers News

Ciara and Jay-Z have announced their 10 city summer tour together.  Ciara will be Jay's "supporting act" of the tour kicking off early July.  They're hitting cities like Vegas and Atlanta.  Ciara has also served as the spokesmodel for Rocawear.  And she'll be the opening act for Britney Spears' European leg of her Circus tour this June.  Nice.

In other news, funny chick Maya Rudolph is pregnant with her second child.  She's one of the funniest people on "SNL" and she's the daughter of the late famed singer Minnie Ripperton.  Congrats to Maya.

yall are such haters how come

yall are such haters how come we cant help uplift each other and be proud of one anothers accomplishments, i find it so hard to believe black people can be so ignorant towards one another and for the people that says ciara has no talent how is she any different from a janet or aahliyah and how come every b!#@h that does well has to be copying beyonce yall really need to come up for air and let jay-z have a chance so they can finally make tha baby.

Congrats Ciara on the tours..

Congrats Ciara on the tours.. Whatever u call it Co-headling, Supporting, Opening Act. She's doing something she loves obviously. And people are talkin about it, they Keep ur name in their mouths. What doesn't kill u makes u stronger. Don't listen to people who don't know ur Dream. U are who God says u are, NOT man. Its easy for people to say something negative, and love to jump on the band wagon to hate on a certain person. It appears Ciara is one of the main targets... Keep ur head up, and keep grinding, and follow ur Pre-ordained plan.. NO ONE can take that from U. God Bless

sallywalks: I actually

sallywalks: I actually wasn’t comparing Ciara and Mary J. I was attempting to make a point about popular artists who tour together. But since that went over your head…..I’ll humor you….and we’ll both agree Mary J is a phenomenal artist. However…… Let’s say Ciara is approximately five years into her career. When our beloved Mary was five years in she was (no offense) cracked out, coked up, in an abusive relationship, on a downward spiral and (gasp!) still opening shows for other artists……and we see how well Mary turned out so why are we so quick to judge Ciara? MARY HAS A GIFT....MARY CAN SING!

leavemebe: if jay can’t

leavemebe: if jay can’t help her boost her sales then she is a lost cause. and that face in that photo only shows how much makeup ciara wears. that is the real face of ciara Trust, she's a lost cause. She did little promotion for this last failed effort, Chrisette Michelle, did NO promotion and she will sale more. Why? because people are wiser, people are working harder for their money. They are not trying to spend their hard earned money on bullshit music. Her vocals remind me of Jennifer Lopez.........real thin, generic, common. When LISTENING to music, we cannot see any DANCING.

sallywalks: It seems that

sallywalks: It seems that many of these comments are based on Tasha making the statement Ciara will be Jay’s “supporting act” but because two artists go on tour it doesn’t necessarily mean one is less than the other. This is true with many Hip Hop and R&B Tours. For instance last year Mary J went on tour with Jayz. Was she also Jay’s “supporting act”?????Didnt think so…. Comparing Mary J and Ciara is like comparing apples to oranges. Mary J is a LEGEND. Ciara is not in Mary J's league. Ciara is a failure all around.

mememe: ciara’s been in the game for less than 5 years. ciara headline a tour before her second album and she coheadlined with ti after the release of her 2nd album. obviously she can do her own small tour if she wanted and can do that anytime.obviously jay z is a vet in the game and so he would headline between the two. same with britney. they have more years on ci. why wouldn’t she go get more money from them. people take and accomplishment as some kind of failure. like people who want everything in a year without working for it. ciara is paying her due. and why are people comparing beyonce to ciara. beyonce been in this business to over 13 years. open for everyone from tlc to christina agulera and more in between with her group to build her to what she is now. and that took more than 4 years. beyonce has worked hard to be where she is and should not be compared to relative newcomers. it’s an insult to beyonce and truly a compliment to ciara. the only thing that ciara is copying from beyonce is staying on her grind, working hard, and taking one step at a time. those 2 ladies should be an example to 90% of you all who will never see 6 figures in your lives ok

A friend just sent me this video with a documentary of her rise to stardom and I was shocked to see how far she's come and how long her journey was...all 3 of those girls, but especially Kelly and Beyonce, cuz Michelle's whole story cudnt b told cuz she came in a bit after, have come a LONG way. And thats y i think Beyonce's earned her place in the industry today...she really worked hard...I definitely giv her props for that. As for Ciara, I definitely think she works hard, but I think some ppl think she has changed too drastically to quickly...like u know, with her sound and look and stuff...but I commend her cuz she's trying and I wish her much success and I hope this tour with Jay gives her that little or rather big boost she needs. Ya'll know Jay cudve done that tour all my his damn self, lol, so I'm glad for her that she actually got this chance tho.

me: congrats to ciara. she

me: congrats to ciara. she stays grinding. it’s not a race. it takes some people longer to get to where they need to be. as long as she keeps god first and remains persistant, she will get there. ciara has no less talent than janet, madonna or britney in performance or vocals. in my opinion, on the stage beyonce stronger vocals but nothing else on ciara as far as i’m concerned. performance wise noone’s messing with ci. once upon a time a decade ago people said beyonce couldn’t sing and/or had no talent etc. ciara is still a relative newcomer to this game, she’s won every US award there is and already she’s taking risks and has the respect of her peers of varying genres, including your beloved beyonce. not to mention she’s making strides on the international front debuting top 10 in 3 countries so far. kudos to ci.it takes some people one album to skyrocket but those people come crumbling down because they didn’t put in work and they fall victim to everything outside the music. No disrespect, but how is this relevant in this post that's just talking abt Ciara touring with Jay-Z? The essay isnt really necessary.

Jayzs' last announced tour

Jayzs' last announced tour with kelly clarkson + other artists did not even sell 1 million... far below the cost of the so called tour/concert (whatvea u call it) flop, flop, flop even though he was the headliner and they were opening. Neither jayz nor ciara is marketable anymore; Jayz is cold news and ciara is lukewarm trying to get hot. On the other hand, they may get hot again.

After awhile its very disappointing because you want to hear good music, quality music, but you can't because they, the artist is not 'the look' of the moment, therefore they are not marketed.
