Ciara has experienced several commercial struggles during the last 2 years. Her 2009 release, ‘Fantasy Ride’, performed poorly on the charts, selling less than 200,000 units in the US to date, despite producing the top 10 hit ‘Love Sex Magic (Ft. Justin Timberlake)’.
Additionally, instead of being praised for attempting to diversify her sound, Ciara endured a backlash from her listeners who argued that she had abandoned her Urban roots. So how has Ciara decided to respond to her critics? By giving them exactly what they want – a return to basics.
‘Basic Instinct’ features the Atlanta entertainer unleashing her sexuality over 11 bass-heavy tracks crafted by the likes of Tricky Stewart, The-Dream, Kenneth ‘Soundz’ Coby, Ester Dean, Tyler Williams, Nelson Kyle and Hilton Humphery. However, Ciara’s attempts at reclaiming her title as the Princess of Crunk N’B prove to be more lukewarm than the audio fire that some would desire.

Speaking in a 2009 interview with Complex magazine, Keri Hilson said:
I don’t want to be oversexed! I don’t want to sell sex, I want to sell music. I want to inspire others, I don’t want to be one of those people who’s always throwing their body at the masses. What good does that do? Besides sell records. Men don’t buy records, anyway.
As earlier reported, the likes of Keri Hilson, Katy Perry, and Nicki Minaj will be flying the flag of divadom at this year’s VH1 Divas: Salute The Troops (which airs live on December 5th).
Ahead of their big day, the ladies, along with the rest of the line-up, nested up at the MCAS Miramar in California for the intense show rehearsals.

All the action after the jump…
Britney Spears has finally announced the release of her next studio album. The Pop megastar has revealed that she is almost finished with the project and that it will hit stores in March 2011. Spears’ last album, ‘Circus’, was certified platinum in the US and yielded the # smash hit ‘Womanizer’ in 2008.
As the controversy over Keri Hilson‘s video for ‘The Way You Love Me’ rages on, the singer’s full interview with Perez Hilton has surfaced.
Seemingly unfazed by the mounting critique, a defensive Hilson slammed the media for their “double standards”, adding that she’s “a freak” who sometimes just wants to be “f*cked”. Her words not ours.
Peep the full interview after the jump. It’s a must see.
Pop icon Britney Spears turned 29 today and is set to celebrrate the day by treating fans to a “special announcement”.
Writing on Twitter just moments ago, the superstar’s manager and Spears’ herself said:
With Spears said to be in the final stages of recording for the follow-up to 2008’s ‘Circus’, many speculate the announcement pertains to the new LP. Excited?! Keep it locked on That Grape Juice for the latest.
It is no secret that the Pussycat Dolls is simply another name for Nicole Scherzinger’s gang of trusty backup dancers. This could not have been more evident than at ‘Fashion Rocks’ 2006 when Melody Thornton made the mistake of stealing the spotlight which caused Scherzinger to become obviously upset.
In fact, Scherzinger made it a point to position herself in front of Thornton while the latter was still singing her part of the song and attempted to force nudge her to return to the background. Watch the drama unfold around the 2:20 mark.
I wonder who this reminds me of…
