Ciara Defends The-Dream’s Comments

Published: Thursday 1st Jul 2010 by Trent

The-Dream found himself in a tricky situation last week when he commented on the state of Ciara’s career, when he claimed that her upcoming ‘Basic Instinct’ project is basically her “last chance” at major success. Now, after being slammed by Ciara’s fans, deleting his Twitter pages and taking shots at That Grape Juice for reporting the news, Ciara herself has come to his defense. Check out what she had to say below:

Angela Yee asked Ciara about it and while she admitted The Dream’s comments “came out wrong” she insisted that there’s no bad blood between the two. “Let me tell you one thing about Dream, if you don’t know him you’ll misunderstand him,”Ciara said in his defense. “One thing about him is he has a big heart, you know so he never means to come from the wrong place however sometime when he speaks, he might say something and it comes off a certain way. So I talked to him and I really got on him.  I was like ‘yo what are you talking about!? I don’t even understand what you’re trying to say.’ But we talked about it. We’re like family…it did come out wrong but it’s all love. We’re like brother and sister.” {Source}

Thanks for clearing that up for us.

    Anybody with good sense would know what The Dream said was taken out proportion but anyways… *Waits for the haters to comment

    Whateva.

  3. brandiose July 1, 2010

    I like how TGJ can throw serious shade at artists, then have them pay for advertising space.

  4. FreshUrbanEnt July 1, 2010

    NEVER MIND TALKING ABOUT HOW THERS NO BAD BLOOD BETWEEN YOU AND THE DREAM. DROP ANOTHER SINGLE AND RELEASE A NEW VIDEO. I REALLY WANT CIARA TO DO WELL THIS TIME ROUND, SO SHE NEEDS TO BE RELEASING NEW MATERIAL. I LIKE “RIDE” BUT CLEARLY IT’S NOT TAKING OFF, SO LETS MOVE ONTO THE NEXT ONE.

    We Know Dream Did Not Mean it Not Like That! But I Do Have To Admit That The Grape Juice Did Take it To Far .The Situation Really Was not that serous but it’s all good! =)
    Basic Instinct Out August 24th! Whoop Whoop 😉

  6. Beyonce Run This July 1, 2010

    She’s such a dumb b****. Or maybe she’s smart for listening to him. Either way HIERA is gonna flop.

  7. RANDOM July 1, 2010

    she’s spineless and he’s an ass.

  8. MUSIC LOVER July 1, 2010

    My only concern is that actually delivered and helped Ciara create hits on the album!

  9. Marquis / Ciara STAN/FAN July 1, 2010

    RDE! Is #113 On The Pop Chart And The Song Has Not Even Been Sent To POP RADIO OFFICIALLY

    Ciara RIDE!!! Is Doing Good!
    urban #7
    r&b charts #7
    Hot 100 #56
    And This Is Only SO FAR!!!

  10. royalkev July 1, 2010

    No Cici, he’s not 5… He understand the meaning behind making a statement like that! I’m still not feeling him. I use to but his singles, never again! He’ll only pocket my money when I buy a Ciara album!

  11. S*** July 1, 2010

    She is spineless, She had absolutely NOTHING to say in her or Beyonce’s defense on that OBVIOUS Keri Hilson diss. She knew damn well that song was about her, who else other than C-Error can dance but not sing??.

    But anyway, I dont know what all the fuss is about. what dream said initially was true. You only get so many chances to fail b4 you become completely irrelevant & not only the Label, but the entire Industry drops you. Artist like Chris Brown, Brandy, Ciara, & now IrrelevanTina are really hanging onto their last threads. (see JLO)

  12. royalkev July 1, 2010

    @Marquis /Ciara/Stan/fan
    I say that same thing from time to time(give status updates) and you see people on here still trying to convince someone that Ride’s a flop! It’s almost a waste of time because it’ll sit at #1 on both the r&b and Hot 100 charts and someone on here will still be talking about a, poor Ciara that week!

  13. Marquis / Ciara STAN/FAN July 1, 2010

    OMG CIARA IS BACK YA’LL 😉 She Never Left!!

  14. Marquis / Ciara STAN/FAN July 1, 2010

    Yeah I Know royalkev Ride is No Flop !

  15. S*** July 1, 2010

    & Yes RIDE is flopping, anything less than #1 for a 1st single in its respective fields is a FLOP. Did she even have a #1 dance song with Ride? & no the BUBBLING UNDER Chart does not count. #56 is horrible for a 1st single. Its a even bigger flop than Video Phone & Not myself tonight. ROTFF

    I see a push back in her near future. Last time she did it because of Beyonce was coming out but now Its gonna be because Ride is a borderline Flop.

  16. bjksolo July 1, 2010

    MAN I LOVE SEEING NEWS ABOUT CICI!!!!

    Yes bjksolo Yeah I Kno Ride Is Doing Good! .. And YEA LMAO!!! @ S***!

  24. Last Boy on Earth July 1, 2010

    you all know you love Rockstar 101 and Te Amo, I don’t know why you say it is flopping, Te Amo wasn’t released on the US and it is top 10 in most of the countries that was released so please STOP. And Rihanna can have a flop, atleast her album is already platinum, we can’t say the same about Ciara, can we?…

  25. Rain( Team Breezy) July 1, 2010

    !. Ciara is young and the dream is unthinking(which he should know better!!).
    2. Chris Brown is always relevant( even when he is wrong, if he is wrong!!)
    3. Ciara’s new song “Ride” is soo f**king hott, haters cant say enough.
    4. We love the haters …YOU make them relevent and popular and sales go up, up and through th roof!!!!
    5. The dream may write alot of hits but he dnt make big record sales his damn self soo..a little less said from him might be a good thing.

  26. Fire Bomb July 1, 2010

    Ciara’s career is over. All these people claiming to buy her album will dissapear the week of August 24th. When her albums leaks 3 weeks early, and she’s predicted to sell 100K in the first week, all these Ciara stans won’t be so mad at The Dream. She can’t sing, Ride is a flop for a first single (even Just Dance from 2008 is higher than it), its over.

  27. Last Boy on Earth July 1, 2010

    @rain (team breezy)
    hmm Ciara and Chris Brown have many haters and they didn’t sell a s*** with their last work. Rihanna is the most hated woman in the industry (I don’t know why but she is) and her last album sold much less then Good Girl Gone Bad so I don’t think haters give more promotion and give them album sells..

  28. ADE July 1, 2010

    Who really cares? What The Dream said was the truth anyway. Come end of August Billboard will be printing an obituary for Ciara’s career

  29. bjksolo July 1, 2010

    So what if it doesn’t sell, I’m pretty sure it will thou cause “ride” is the shyt and i can see this being requested a lot on the radios. But who gives a s*** if doesn’t. We love Ciara and her fans don’t give a s*** no more, she still makes her money and she isn’t getting dropped anytime soon. Anyway, the song ride is a smash and also if that piece of s*** Rude Boy can go #1 for 4 weeks, why can’t ride. It just goes to show that being #1 doesn’t mean the song is good. Ciara is back and stronger than ever!!!

    @bjksolo
    Rude boy went #1 for 5 weeks, not 4, check your facts (x

  31. DJ TAJ July 1, 2010

    I love your blog and usually totally agree with your opinions. (USUALLY) I just find it weird that you and The Dream are having beef with one another but you will accept money from his label for advertising. I think you should write a post explaining the situation from your end. I know it has a lot of your readers scratching their heads. T

  32. Marquis / Ciara STAN/FAN July 1, 2010

    CIARA CAREER IS NEVER OVER!!! SORRY!

  33. bjksolo July 1, 2010

    (even Just Dance from 2008 is higher than it) You Mean Wen’t Higher than ROCKSTAR! RIGHT?

  35. shingie July 1, 2010

    having a number 1 song dont mean the album will sell. some artist sell without a number 1 eg sade , alicia keys?, maxwell etc ride is doing well. its a rnb hit now and only time will tell will probably be a hot100 hit soon

  36. bjksolo July 1, 2010

  37. BENJAMIN July 1, 2010

    Why do celebrities always try to take s*** back once they become under fire? Think before you speak. As far as Ciara goes, I’m sure she was at least somewhat skeptical, but maybe they aired it out.

  38. DANBOFFICIAL (AALIYAH/XTINA/RIHANNA) (STAN) July 1, 2010

    BJKSOLO

    Ciara hasnt had a hit since goodies so please siddown chiiile !

    look at someone like Beyonce still only on her third solo album and “I Am sasha fierce” has outsold Flopiaraz entire career of her four shitty filled album my sweetie.

  48. Mark July 1, 2010

    Haha! I thought this war of words between u & the Dream was pretty dope until it became bate that it’s just to drum up hype for his new album.

    Love The-Dream & I love your hustle – working the game… But really? Massive Dream adverts, come on Sam, don’t pretend any of this is real beef…

  49. DeDe July 1, 2010

    IDK Y everyone being fo fake with each other. Dream said it and we all knew what he meant. Stop sugar coating it. Like said, Ciara better step up her game or ita a rap for her.. point blank.

  50. Dum Dum July 1, 2010

    He meant every word he said and was 100% right. I expected her so called “humble” a$$ to not believe it. u That is why 50 is hanging on to this dummy. she is the type of woman u can cheat and lie to and if you say you didn’t do it dummy will believe it.

    Y SHE KEEP STEALIN YO STORYS?

  53. JT July 2, 2010

    I just listened to “Ride” for the first time. She really doesn’t have any vocal ability, does she?

  54. Bullfighter808 July 2, 2010

    How is “Ride” flopping? It took forever for Alicia Key’s song to get to number one, or even to get into the top ten. I give it three more weeks before you can call it a flop, its just one of those songs that takes a while to get hot. Its called, not getting OVER PLAYED. That is a good thing in my opinion.

    I’d rather Ciara get a hit with her fans, rather than a song gets so overdone and outplayed that I don’t even want to listen to it anymore! Even though that will never happen with this song.

    I can’t believe the other s*** that gets so much airplay. California gurls, please! That song was hot on first listen, than I just hit the next button. So overplayed and overrated.

  55. Ebony July 4, 2010

    Puh-lease! If you read the interviews where The Dream talks about Christina and “that baby” you would know he’s a nasty person. I wish the best of luck to Ciara but i’m really not checking for The Dream and his smedium sized shirts anymore…Next!
