Madam Prezident: Ciara Says “The N-Word Doesn’t Mean The Same Thing Today As It Did Many Years Ago”


Ciara Says, The N-Word Doesn’t Mean The Same Thing Today As It Did Many Years Ago

Ciara stopped by Access Hollywood to discuss her upcoming video with Nicki Minaj titled “I’m Out”, but before she got to speak on her recent music projects, she was asked to state how she felt about the use of the N-word. Ciara had a lot to say about the use of the N-word and Paula Deen’s recent N-word encounter.

Ciara explanation to the use of the N-word was very clear. In different words she said, the use of the N-word is different when she uses it.  Do you agree?

“As an entertainer you have fun and it’s all about the context it’s used in. I am an AfricanAmerican woman, so I can identify with that word in different ways, It’s all about the context and in my case I know I can have fun because I know where I’m coming from with it. You have to be light-hearted and it has to be in a certain way. I cannot hear another person of another race saying, ‘you this’ like ‘you that.’ Again, it’s all about how you say it and what context it’s used in.

That word has as much power as you give it.

“That word is so old that it references the context of where it comes from. I want to make sure I’m clear about that, it doesn’t mean that same thing that it could have meant years ago, especially when we can have fun about it.”

Regardless of what Ciara says, we must be accountable for our words. If we constantly excuse ourselves for using the N-word then we cannot moan and cry when someone from another race uses it against us; no matter what context it’s in.  The host from ‘Access Hollywood’ put Ciara on blast by publicly stating on camera that her music has frequent use of the N-word.

Nicki’s Minaj Is Blaming Walmart For Her Poor Re-Up’ Album Sales

See there’s this thing called iTunes…but apparently Nicki thinks all of her sales come from Walmart customers.

Whining about the busted sales of her repackaged, old azz material, Nicki’s throwing stores like Best Buy, Target, and Walmart under the bus.

According to The Huffington Post, Nicki admits that the re-release wasn’t even carried by some retailers:

When asked in an interview with Power 105.1 if it was hard to purchase “Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded – The Re-Up,” Minaj responded, “It is hard to get the album because the stores basically said that the last few re-releases they had put out did not do well and they didn’t want to take a chance. So, Target and Walmart is not selling the album. Target is actually my biggest retailer — they’ve always been my biggest retailer. They’ve sold the most Nicki Minaj albums ever, so, thank you, Target. But I wish you could’ve sold this one.”

Minaj continued, “Best Buy only took limited because they’re like ‘Oh no, we want to play it safe,’ so it’s very difficult and it kind of sets you up to fail.”

The singer’s second album, “Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded,” debuted at number one on Billboard with 253,000 copies sold in the album’s first week.

The re-release, “Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded – The Re-Up” hit stores on Nov. 19.

“At the end of the day, I was happy I was able to put the music out,” Minaj said.

Maybe it’s the quality that’s effecting your sales? Just sayin’.

Alicia Keys Featuring Nicki Minaj “Girl On Fire” (Inferno Version)

Is it hot in here or is it just us??

Alicia Keys Featuring Nicki Minaj “Girl On Fire” (Inferno Version)

Alicia Keys has been a pretty busy lady lately. Between shutting it down at the iTunes Festival in London, handling motherly duties, becoming one of the newest members of Reebok, and preparing for a new album, you would think that the multi-talented superstar wouldn’t have time to release another video.

Nicki Minaj Accuses American Idol Producers Of Setting Her Up To Boost Ratings!

Looks like they accomplish their mission

We have a feeling that yesterday’s antics we’re just the beginning..

Nicki Minaj Says American Idol Is Setting Her Up To Be Angry With Mariah Carey

According to TMZ reports:

Nicki Minaj is FURIOUS with “American Idol” producers — telling her peeps they goosed Mariah Carey into starting beef on the set.

Sources connected with Nicki tell us … she’s convinced producers — along with member’s of Mariah’s team — are conspiring to get under her skin … because they think a pissed off Minaj will bring in viewers.

We’re told Nicki is adamant … she won’t be anyone’s puppet and if she feels she’s being set up, she vows to “cut it off at the head.” As for how, she says for starters, the next time Mariah “acts up,” Nicki is walking off the set.

There’s just one problem with her theory — we know “Idol” producers were genuinely shocked and upset by Tuesday’s outburst. Our very connected “Idol” sources tell us the big wigs were completely flat footed and they are doing everything they can to restore peace — which they successfully did Wednesday.

We hear you Nicki!

Nicki Minaj And Mariah Carey Are Already Working Each Other’s Nerves!

We didn’t see this coming! Looks like we were all right when we questioned whether or not this pairing would work out.

According to TMZ…

Mariah Carey wasted no time proving what we told you 2 weeks ago — there’s only room for one diva on “American Idol.”

Carey and Nicki Minaj went at it during the first “A.I.” taping Sunday in NYC. When Nicki started critiquing a contestant, Mariah would interrupt — not once, but many times. Each time Mariah interrupted, Nicki fought back by loudly talking over Mariah.

One “A.I.” spy said Mariah and Nicki tried to cover their disdain for each other but everyone saw through it, adding, “These girls just don’t like each other.”

You may recall, we reported when producers called Mariah to tell her that Nicki would probably be joining her as a judge, she hung up the phone.

Hate to admit it but we’ll be watching this season for the side-eyed glares coming from these two attention slores! LLS
