The performer, 24, confirmed the rumour to be true while walking the red carpet at the Maxim Hot 100 party earlier this week. Check out what she had to say below…

Do you agree with BET’s decision?

    F*** FLOP.E.T THEY PLAY TREY SONGZ PORNOS AND THEIFYONCE POPPIN HER P**** N S*** BUT WONT SHOW CIARA..CIARA WAS DOING SKILLED DANCING

  3. Renee May 21, 2010

    Maybe she should call Lady Gaga to do another video to the same song. I guess if Gaga do a risque video, it’s somewhat edgy and creative/different. Personally, I saw absolutely nothing wrong with Ciara’s video at all. I don’t understand why BET is snubbing her video. I think there’s more to this story as BET seem to have a focus on a selected group of “elite” artists. I don’t like the path BET is going, but then again I haven’t watch BET in almost 5 years. So, I can’t judge in the end.

    THEY DID THAT COS MATTEW KNOWLES OWNS BET AHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHHA TO BAD WHATT THE KNOWLES SAYS GOESSSSSSSSSSS

  5. not right May 21, 2010

    SEE THIS ABOVE ^^^^^^^^^^^

    Stop that negative energy! You dont have to diss beyonce or gaga to uplift ciara. Lets all be more positive. Those comments arent nice.lol

    Im simply saying, if they can play all that….then they can play ride!

  6. “Dj Y2k Malone” May 21, 2010

    well BET is trying to change there image she should have saw this coming a mile away
    why didn’t she have 2 versions of the vid to begin with
    oh well she has flopped

  7. Alex May 21, 2010

    I dont care much for Ciara but if they can play Trey Songz’s ‘Invented S**’ video why cant they play Ride?

  8. GangsterA May 21, 2010

    Bet sux and ciara should stop bitchin and go promoet the song its arleady went no 1 on itunes if she she do more promo it well be a massive hit

  9. NAS May 21, 2010

    I don’t particuarly know whether this is true and if so then BET are the most boring station I’ve ever known. It should be abolished!!!!!!!!!!!!

  10. KD May 21, 2010

    Saying that just because BET played “telephone” or any other video’s that are racy then they should play Ciara’s music video is short-sighted. Music channels need to start banning some of these racy video’s I swear some video’s are deserving of age restrictions.

    Big Up’s BET, now lets ban some more of these video’s

  11. symbolize wisdom May 21, 2010

    i agree w/ @Dj Y2k Malone she should have made a more clean version and everyone said the video was a lil too hot for tv when it first dropped! they don’t play the whole gaga video so all that is bs!

  12. MINE May 21, 2010

    I don’t see the racyness ciara is a dancer and if anything she wasn’t looking slutty in the video.
    I’ve been wanted to adress b.e.t since they told michelle williams that her vthat we break the dawn wasn’t urban enough

  13. tae May 21, 2010

    well as you can see by ciara face she doesnt care so i dont either.she knows its doing great with or without bet.

  14. qc May 21, 2010

    BET IS FULL OF S***!!!!!!!!! HELLO!?!?!? THEY PLAY “INVENTED S**” ALL DAMN DAY AND HE’S OUT RIGHT HAVING S** IN THAT VIDEO!!!!!!!!!! CIARA DOES A LIL SULTRY DANCING AND NOW EVERYONES TRIPPING. F** BET! THAT’S WHY NO ONE USES THEM ANYMORE….

  15. Reasonable Voice May 21, 2010

    What other videos by male artists have been banned (assuming this is true about Ci-Ci’s video)? I know BET tried to pull the same s*** with Teirra Marie’s sponsor. Why does it seem like they are taking women to task and not men? Does BET play Rude Boy because the lyrics are just as suggestive.

  16. pr3ttywild May 21, 2010

    BET needs to stop this nonsense & play the damn video its hot!

  17. The Truth May 21, 2010

    I love the song. The video is a lil toooo s*** I guess for the younger generation. BET is trying to clean up there network, I guess by being more positive and show more love. Oh well we have youtube. When is her album coming out? I need a release date or she will have another flop.

  18. Brittany May 21, 2010

    BET has been pissing me off in the last couple days. You’re really going to ban her video and leave other racy videos on like Trey Songz soft p*** ones? I get that they’re trying to change their image(even though they’re a couple years too late) but if you’re going to ban hers, ban the others. It’s only fair.

  19. soeuro May 21, 2010

    OMG, SOOO hot. Yesterday I saw a hot her video on ” B la ck BBW Cupid. C o m ” which is a bbw and bhm dating site. In this video she has a very hot s*** wear and a cool hairstyle.

  20. Love Music May 21, 2010

    EBT, don’t you think its a little too late for you all to have morals?

  21. Renae May 21, 2010

    BET has standards when it comes to videos????

  22. Venus May 21, 2010

    ummmm why the hell is she talkin like that?

  23. Renee May 21, 2010

    @ Not Right

    I didn’t diss Lady Gaga. Maybe you need lessons on reading comprehension. Obviously, you just saw Lady Gaga’s name and I suppose the brain cells stop working. And I don’t need to uplift a rich entertainer either. No negative energy here. I simply think there’s more to the issue that the general public is unaware of. This is the problem sometimes coming onto these boards. I just can’t understand the innate stupidity and lack of intelligence some people exhibit.

  24. Ghetto Fab May 21, 2010

    Steups!!!!!

    Is this the same BET that played Nelly’s “Tip Drill????” Didn’t they have an uncut show for about 2-3 years?? And isn’t this the same station that features girls dropping it low all day on videos? And now they don’t want to play a video from their lead entertainers because all of a sudden her moves are too provocative for the channel? F*** BET!!! Ciara’s fans should really boycott them. That is such a double standard.

    BTW aren’t they playing Trey Songz pornos on that channel? So Trey Songz “I Invented S**” is ok to play but Ciara’s ride which only really has sexual innuendos in it can’t be played? The more I think about this, the more I get mad. I am actually considering buying Ciara’s s*** so that she actually does extremely well JUST TO STICK IT TO BET! DUMB F****!

  25. kveick May 21, 2010

    Who cares?!? It’s BET! lol

    BET=Worst music channel ever, they have played much worst s*** they are pathetic

  26. Ken_E May 21, 2010

    Rihanna doing the dirty butterfly and grabbing her crotch in “Rude Boy”, Trey Songz basically having s** in “Invented S**”, Gag-Me and BeYawnce promoting lesbianism and murder dancing around half naked around the “P**** WAGON” in “Telephone”, Usher having nothing but half naked b****** pole dancing in “Lil Freak”? And Ciara has the provocative video? And all she is doing is dancing the entire time?

    I SMELL MATTHEW KNOWLES ALL OVER THIS ONE! HE’S PROBABLY DOING THIS (PAYING PEOPLE) TO KEEP AS MUCH ATTENTION AWAY FROM OTHER FEMALE ACTS TRYING TO MAKE A COMEBACK SO ONCE BEYAWNCE IS READY TO RELEASE NEW MUSIC, SHE HAS JUST AS MUCH, IF NOT MORE, ATTENTION THAN EVERYBODY ELSE ONCE AGAIN!

  27. Ghetto Fab May 21, 2010

    @ Ken_E

    I love to make fun of the Knowles but I don’t think it’s them this time. Who knows? And if it is then they aren’t doing a great job because the video is playing on MTV, MTV Jams, MTV2, VH1 and Fuse (i think). So they better step they game up. Also we live in a world where if you want to watch a video all you have to do is hit the internet. Let’s support Cici during the BS she is going through with BE-S*****

  28. elegantmiss May 21, 2010

    Good—-TV needs to be censored in ways like this—–so twisted nowadays…

  29. RANDOM May 21, 2010

    shouldn’t that be is not playing my video.

    thats not why its flopping there MANY successful artists that bet doesn’t play e.g. leona lewis,taio cruz,jason derulo.jay sean the list goes on and they do great.

  30. CC May 21, 2010

    If agree with most people here….its unfair that they allow other videos, like “I Invented S**” and others with basically naked women, but when its Ciara doing some s*** dancing then it has to be banned completely?

    Yes at some points she is showing quite a bit of skin (the cut out swimsuit thing), but for most of it she is wearing leggings and a top…whats wrong with that? I mean in part of “Telephone” gaga is wearing a thong and a bra..thats it! Not to mention the mass homicide in that video!

    If they’re gonna ban one video for being too s***/ risque then surely they should ban them all, no?

    I also feel as if it has something to do with the s** of the artist. It’s fine for male singers and rappers to have naked woman pole dancing and such, but when its a female singer, shes not even allowed to do some s*** dancing and show some skin? B*******

  31. Yellow Gorillah May 21, 2010

    O Hell To the noo That some B*******!!!

    How The Hell are they going to BAN the ride video but yet play Try songz I inveted S** like are you seriouse it is even in the song name that its a racy (dirrty) video soo why do it to ciara
    The ride video is s*** but like jheeez even telefone is wayyy more x rated then ride but that still got played sorry They are SNUBBING ciara just when she has a new good track aswell that some b******* but heyy ciara it is only B.E.T nobody cares for that channel they play the same old rubbish songz everyday beyonce to chris brown to trey songz to drake to nicki minaj and then back to beyonce same old ghetto ass people.. She should make an uncut version anywayz just incase other music video channels dont allow that version!

  32. ThatOne May 21, 2010

    Absolutely ridiculous. I’ve seen Ciara’s video before and it comes nowhere close to the raunchiness of other videos this network has played before. Let’s not forget the videos of BET Uncut that this channel has played. Ciara’s a woman. Let her celebrate her sexuality. Janet did it, and so did Madonna. Ciara can too.

  33. Jerry May 21, 2010

    Well the song suck so who cares…

  34. Misty May 21, 2010

    Ciara tryna sound all proper now……………
    but on the matter at hand, BET is a HAM so I’m DONE! I feel bad for Ci Ci but at this stage in her career, she shouldn’t have to depend on BET. At least she’s getting played on MTV and VH1. I for one hope she doesnt perform at the BET awards, I dont care how much they offer to pay her. She needs 2 boycott them 4 awhile till they realize what they’ve done. BET is in no position to screen anything NOW after all that its let through their system! Look at all the rappers and R&B male singers that manage to escape this blackball. It’s sad, its a man’s world indeed!
    But BET finally played Teairra’s video and put it up to vote for so maybe they’ll do it 4 Ciara. Ciara shouldnt have to edit shyt tho, cuz they never asked Trey Songz to when he was having s** in his videos. BET, fire Debra Lee!

  35. coolio May 21, 2010

    well…at least p*** streaming sites love the video…
    get your video budget up cici!!!

  36. Dave May 21, 2010

    She’s not DEPENDING ON THEM, She simply addressed it, since it’s being known out there in the media. & yes EBT is wrong. I’m they play Trey’s Videos, everything he does is sexually over the top, they played Riwhore-a’s “Hard” she’s dressing scantily clad there, i’m sure they play “Rude Boy”, but they won’t play Ciara “Ride”? Ok, all she is doing is dancing, # 1 scantily clad scene, & she’s talking about s** suggesting wise, but who isn’t? At least she’s not directly referencing it

  37. jonstrax May 21, 2010

    CIARA I WOULDN’T WORRY, IS ANYONE EVEN CHECKIN FOR LAMS ASS BET ANYMORE ?

    CHECK OUT MY NEW ENTERTAINMENT SITE >>>> http://WWW.FRESHURBANENT.CO.UK

  38. DaGoldenGurl May 21, 2010

    If they can play Trey’s Invented S** and Robin’s S** Therapy, they should allow Ciara’s video to play on the station.

  39. Waddie G. May 21, 2010

    As much as Beyonce’s gyrating and stripping is played on heavy rotation on the BET network, this b******* is very contradictory. I guess there’s only room for one hip-hop burlesque diva on the network. I wish Beyonce learned how to really dance.

  40. Ghetto Fab May 21, 2010

    Folks I would send BET some HATE MAIL! They need to know that the public is outraged. This is ridiculous!!! It is such a contradiction that it ain’t even funny. My TV won’t go near BET and neither should you guys.

    And to the idiots saying she sound all hollywood and s***. No the b**** got an education you dumb fools! That’s something you hoodrats dream about in your little hood villages. Don’t hate on the girl because she learned to speak proper English. Congratulate her!

  41. Blasian May 21, 2010

    BET LOVES BEYONCE! DON’T FORGET IT

    CIARA SONG AND VIDEO IS WACK AND A FLOP WHO CARE’S LOOKS LIKE ANOTHER FLOP ALBUM LMAO

  42. Baron May 21, 2010

    Please don’t make this a forum for yet another assault on Beyonce’s character or anyone else’s, for that matter. This is an issue that Ciara needs to address with BET. Has she tried calling them or setting up a meeting between the producers and her management?

  43. lisa May 21, 2010

    I CAN SEE EXACTLY WHAT’S GOING ON HER, THAT VIDEO IS SO HOT UNTIL SOMEBODY IN THE INDUSTRY COULDN’T HANDLE IT AND LOOK LIKE SOME BEHIND SEEN PAYING BUT THAT’T ALRIGHT AT THE END OF THE DAY VIDEO STILL PLAY EVEN MTV AND VH1 GIVE IT ALOT OF LOVE SO KEEP ON MARCHING CIARA BECAUSE EVERY YEAR BET IS FALLING!

  44. J-Wellz May 21, 2010

  45. Mr.727 May 21, 2010

    I don’t watch s***.E.T, but I have to commend them for taking a stand against these s** induced ass videos! People don’t want to have there kids watching that s***! You can’t stop them from watching it, but you can control the things that your children watch! Cici really needs to find other ways to expand her craft! Dancing an shaking your ass is not always going to work for you! So glad women like Janelle Monae are on the scene now! To show that black women don’t have to be half ass necked to make a statement!

  46. eHarris May 21, 2010

    They Did the same thing to Teairra Mari w/ Her video Sponsor they are not playing that but they need to let Ciara and Teairra do their thang on BET #fuckBET and the bet awards 2010

  47. CAMEL TOE May 21, 2010

    CERROR STOP USING NEGATIVITY TO PROMOTE THAT WHACK SONG AND ALBUM. YOU ARE STILL GONNA FLOP.

  48. Liberal May 21, 2010

    No, I don’t agree at all. For one, it’s NOT racy. I have seen video ***** wearing and doing much more than Ciara is doing in the video. BET is wrong. Totally wrong.

  49. BEYONCE VS. WORLD May 21, 2010

    F*** BET WHEN DO THEY PLAY VIDEO DURING 106&PARK

  50. Last Boy on Earth May 21, 2010

    @ Last Boy On Earth

    LMAo Sometimes I feel like I have to. It’s one thing when we are all battling eachother over which Diva we like the best and cussing eachother out lol. But it’s another to down anyone for getting an education. That’s just ignorant.

  60. here to laugh May 21, 2010

    It really isn’t fair for BET to ban “Ride” but keep playing videos by other artists that are just as, if not more, suggestive. But BET sucks anyway, and has been on the decline for awhile now.

  61. LIKE A BOY May 21, 2010

    BET is a joke. Not more more to say.

  62. Kenny May 21, 2010

    Why is this shocking? Ciara hasnt drunk the Kool Aid, BET only plays artist associated with Jay Z/Lil Wayne/Diddy… others dont get a fair shake because they are not paying out.

  63. MUSIC LOVER May 21, 2010

    That’s complete b*******. They play other raunchier videos on BET. Nevertheless this is another reason for her to release a new single. “Ride” wasn’t hit material! She only has one shot left, and she has to do it big or she’s done. I’m rooting for her though! She better not disappoint!

  64. THE ONE May 21, 2010

    SHE WILL CONTINUE DISAPPOINT NO NEED TO LOOK FOR HER IN THE FUTURE …

    EVERY SINCE THAT DREADFUL FANTASY FLOP ALBUM SHE HAS BECOME VERY
    CHEAP AND HAS REPEATEDLY CONTINUED TO SLIP FUTHER AND FUTHER DOWN
    THE HILL !

    EVERYTHING FROM THE VIDEOS TO THE MUSIC !

    SHE HAS NO SENSE OF PROGRESSION!

  65. THE ONE May 21, 2010

    SHE TRIED TO GLAMOUR THAT IMAGE WAAAAAY UP AND THEN CHEAPIN IT DOWN IN ALL HER LATEST WORK!

    IT MAKES NO SENSE CIARA!

    NOT EVEN FASHION CAN HELP THIS LADY!

  66. THE ONE May 21, 2010

  67. Prince Kaleo May 21, 2010

    It’s funny that they won’t play her video, but they had that show ‘UNCUT’ at night that played nothing but nasty raunchy a** nudey videos. That show should of been on adult pay-per-view or something. I don’t get why they wouldn’t play her video now its not even as bad as half the sh** they play now. I love Nicki Minaj and her video ‘Massive Attach’ is very “racey” but they still play it. I mean they are just low balling Ciara its b*******!

  68. Prince Kaleo May 21, 2010

    I just got thru reading some of the other comments and i do agree Ciara is a very talented performer, but this material isn’t some of her best work. I mean as far as BET not playing the video I don’t get why not that part makes no sense. Another thing i just think music right now is changing and she may need to change with it. I commend her efforts to staying ATL with it, but i just feel she needs to work with a whole new league of producers like venture out. She should work with like Rico Love,The Neptunes,..and even though everyones doing this i think she should do some tracks with David Guetta.

  69. Me Damnit!! May 21, 2010

    Damn! Really BET??? With all the sexually explixit vidoes they have played in the past and NOW they wanna get morals!!! LMAO!! Okay BET.

    I didn’t think the song was gonna do that good anyways. I haven’t even seen it on the other video chanels and I heard it on the radio once. It’s too slow and gets old after awhile. I think the provocative video was just to get attention, but no matter how risque a video is, if the song sucks it fails period.

    She needs to come harder with a great club record that she can dance to.and no stripper moves please! Lol!

    Still rooting for you though CiCi.

  70. Me Damnit!! May 21, 2010

    @Last BoyOn Earth: You know…you have some nerve calling others ‘hoodrats’ when you can’t even post a comment without using profanity and calling other women b******! You sound just as ignorant as you are accusing others of being! It’s usually the ones that fit that sterotype that are quick to use it against someone! Grow Up!

    It’s not about speaking proper english, she is talking like a valley girl in this video.like she was born and raised in Cali! She sounds like a long lost Kardashian sister.

    She wasn’t speaking like this when she was fresh out of the hood in Atlanta. She’s been in Hollywood to long following behind the Kardashians and it shows. People miss the old CiCi.

  71. Ghetto Fab May 21, 2010

    @ Me Damnit!!

    Last Boy on Earth was quoting me. And I stand by my statement, there is nothing wrong with her speech. Yea she said umm a few times but that is clearly because she is talking about a delicate situation. She wanted to be careful about the words she used so that she can still be played on BET in the future. As far as her speech there is nothing wrong with it. You act like she is supposed to just stay sounding like she came from the hoods of ATL. She is educating herself and THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH THAT! You are exactly what is wrong with black folks today. Get a damn education. Nobod wants to associate with people from the hood. If Ciara had stayed talking like that she would have NEVER gotten her deals with ADDIDAS or Givenchy! That is a FACT! So if you wanna call her a hoodrat then so be it!

  72. Ciara Stan May 21, 2010

    Yall just hatin on ciara I would bet my life that ride is goin 2 numba 1 on the r&b charts and the top 20 on the hot 100. a Yall think just cuz it dnt start @ hi postin its a flop/ she just had a flop album ppl have 2 warm up 2 her again Ride is gettin more airplay. her album will @ least go gold she gonna b like trey songz. She has 2 try a regain her URban fanbase with this album. And ride is doin well urban/ hER FIRST Week sales will probaly b like monicas She will sell more than rihannas first week/ But she will comeback i promise u that!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  73. Ben May 21, 2010

    I really don’t see what she would need to edit in order fro BET to play the video? BET is just comprised of a bunch of biased assholes, and it has been like that for some time now. We all know if it were Beyonce, her video would be played 24/7. I however have noticed BET has been snubbing Ciara quite a bit recently, she wasn’t even nominated last year at the BET Awards when she should have been, cause she had an album out then. BET never gave Keyshia Cole a BET Award(nominated 4 years in a row), and she had the number one tv show on their station for 3 years straight. Monica only got 2 D-class nominations after her success of her tv show, and her hard work on her comeback. The list is endless. On the other hand, isn’t this the reason why Youtube’s “Vevo” was created? Because music videos aren’t being played as much on tv anymore. And more people watch videos online now more than ever.
    Side note: Anyone notices how Ciara looks a little different here, and she is talking rather “LA-sih”. …………….I don’t know, seems like she is really soaking in this Hollywood lifestyle very fast.

    GUUUURL, BET is a boiling hot ass mess of a station that I REFUSE to watch or support in ANY capacity, however Ciara should have been smart and came out with 2 versions of the video. Just because BET is a mess doesn’t mean that Ciara gets a pass for putting out a booty popping video and expecting everyone to be receptive.

    I think I loved CIara right until this new album, which by the way sounds like garbage. I even Iet the girl have a second chance after that Fantasy Ride fiasco but honey unless i hear something that changes my mind, I’m going to give her new project the side eye. I’m so disappointed. Ride was a horrible song and I knew not even the video could save it.

    Where is the petition to sign if your against BET’s banning? I will gladly sign it. This station has repeatedly embarassed Africian American’s with their low standards for selecting videos. The 106 countdown is complete and utter ignorance! The enitre BET line up should be under reconstructed if their going to sort through what’s negative and inappropriate. This video is one of the more harmless of so many that are raunchy and immoral. Ciara’a video is suggestive and perhaps the most fair approah that should have been taken was to insist that she edit or produce a cleaner version for them to play. For the most part she’s relying on her dancing to entertain her audience and airing this video should not be prohibited because of her s*** image. It’s a big double standard, male artist(especially rappers) insist on disrespecting women in their videos with everything from the language to the provocative dancing. The message is far worse than Ciara’s and it’s filled with violence and vulgarity. I am not watching BET anymore, as of today I’m banning them! If anyone has any info of where to sign the petition in support of Ciara I’d appreciate it if you can list it. I’m supporting the album too, so if you have the release date announce that here also.

    Side note: It’s sad to see people clowning anyone for sounding proper these days. It’s 2010 and I really think everyone should do little things to better their speech and present themselves better. Ciara is a role model for some and I’m glad to see her carrying herself the way she do. Let’s not be narrow minded.

    BET needs to take a look at where it’s been and where it’s going. There’s no reason why this video shouldn’t be on the television. They’ve shown videos with people having dry s**, half naked ladies and songs that have much more suggestive lyrics.

    They tryna dog Ciara but they need to remember they stand for BLACK ENTERTAINMENT TELEVISION and if they ain’t supporting our black artists who the hell else can we expect to do it? Debra whatever, you need to get your s*** together and fix this channel! We already have one MTV we don’t need a black carbon copy! Get back to the damn music!

    I don’t blame BET for not playing that porno flick. It’s not just the video, it’s the lyrics as well. But I do agree that if you are going to ban one, ban them all. You’ve got to start somewhere. Imagine your 11 year old in front of the TV practicing and singing along with the video.
