Following Ciara’s performance at the 2007 BET Awards this week, speculation has been mounting as to what the singer was trying to convey with her robe. Similar to James Brown, at the end of her set, a robe was thrown to the ‘Promise’ singer – baring ‘#25’ across the back. Explanations ranging from her affiliation with 50 Cent (half of 50?) to her alleged romance with NFL star Reggie Bush (The Saints player #25) have been cited. However, she has revealed to MTV
that the number was to poke fun at her placing at #25 on BET’s Top 25 Dancers list – below Diddy, Beyonce, Prince and Missy Elliott:
“I don’t know if you’ve seen the Top 25 Dancers countdown on BET; I acknowledged that,” she admitted, quashing the other rumors.
I couldn’t agree with her more. On the one hand, it may seem kinda egotistical on her part, but we all know the deal- she’s one of the best dancers out now in the music business. BET know they were wrong for that.
Do you think Ciara was right in doing what she did?
