With a new album reportedly on the way and the general public still head over heels in love with her smash hit single ‘Body Party’, Ciara has taken the time to pen an open letter to her fans today.

Yes, in an unlocking the oft guarded book that is her life, the mild-mannered maestra held nothing back when thanking her ‘Squad’ for their support and the friends that are helping her to find inner peace and joy amidst the insanity that is the music industry.

Warm words from the bold beauty below…

  5. Iconic cici December 31, 2013

    Im glad shes happy people like @Slay_Hive really need stfu and get off Ciaras c***. Go listen to that rip off Beyonce album and leave Queen Ciara alone biitch boy.

  6. smh December 31, 2013

    ciara, ciara, ciara……Why don’t u just tell your fans what is going on with the album, video for overdose or just anything relating to your music! I am not a fan and it is pissing me off. You seem to be worried about who is your friends and who isn’t. You keep saying for the last 3 years “it’s only the beginning”. You start things and don’t finish and don’t let your fans know what is going on. You owe that much to your TRUE fans. You are so right about if the industry was the only thing you ha in your life, you won’t have anything, because it looks like you don’t have anything any more. Just tell you fans something, anything. The fast way to lose fans is to not let them know what is going on.

    Is Sad To be Honest, I will admit she has some potential, but something is always F***** up for her.

    Loved her words though.

    *sigh*

  8. Iconic cici December 31, 2013

    C squad will always love Ciara we have such a strong amazing and REAL connection with Ciara unlike other Artist who only use their fans (Beyonce Gaga Rihanna)

  9. Iconic cici December 31, 2013

    @FutureCiara love your avi.Ciara is so gorgeous

  10. LA LA December 31, 2013

    Ciara needs to step it up. I listen to a lot of artist and enjoy their music like the Janet Jacksons, Beyonces, Whitney, Mariah and etc but when you put out a crappy album like the recent one with the crappy pop songs that did her no justice.

    I like Ciara but perhaps building a brand, promoting yourself properly in the public eye should be more of the focus for her.

    I just hope that she comes out with a better album and better singles because while releasing a big song like “Body Party” and just to have poor follow ups…… smh

  11. The truth hurts December 31, 2013

    “It is only just beginning” , “We’re just getting started”
    REALLY!! 10+ years into your ‘career’ and your just getting started? What the hell have you been doing then . Were all those flop albums warm up for THE ultimate flop?

  12. Iconic cici December 31, 2013

    @TheTruth b**** go f*** yourself its not my fault Vh1 named Lana the 2nd biggest flop of 2013 Lmao.

  13. FutureCIARA December 31, 2013

    Ciara has real fans, especially if you’ve been supporting her since the Goodies era. If you can still love an artist through all their BS and flop eras, And still enjoy everything the artist puts an effort in, Thats what defines a real fan to me, Through the thick and thin…

    Most stans jump on the bandwagon of an artist simply because its easy to brag about album/ or single sales… (i.e When Rosie and 50% of TGJ commenters hopped on the Beyhive after she dropped her suprise album)

    Its a talent to be able to notice the true stans from the ones that decide to jump on the bandwagon for the ride just because it looks promising with bragging rights and winning stan wars online….

    Thats where most of the Beyhive and Navy come in… Because God knows The Navy act like Rihanna’s career didnt begin until GGGB, they somehow seem to have amnesia when it comes to the era before GGGB.. Its no shade though.. I like them all, and I used to be a die hard Bey fan and I still live for Bey, but the Hive and Navy F**** know they give much sometimes!!. Especially on this blog

  14. Yonceliqua December 31, 2013

    Lol this letter made me laugh so hard. Yes all 57k fans are appreciated for making Ci-error the biggest flop ever lol.

  15. BEYHIVE_MINAJ December 31, 2013

    Great letter. But it’s pointless to say Its just the beginning if you won’t promote anything and just sit on your potential

  16. beys fans are mostly insecure f*** December 31, 2013

    STFU u freakin f***! You kno damn well yall was dancin to Ciara at one point so stop it! Its always beys insecure dilusional ass fans coming for every other female artist smh you can love beys boring ass all you want but there is no need to diss others unless of course you feel threatened!

  17. FutureCIARA December 31, 2013

    @Iconic Ci, Thanks babe… I love her recent photo shoot she did!! they got some really amazing shots.

    When are you going to get one sis?

  18. Iconic cici December 31, 2013

    @FutureCiara your right the hive and navy definitely over hype there fav especially f** navy.

  19. Iconic cici December 31, 2013

    @FutureCiara idk how to get on

  20. Iconic cici December 31, 2013

    one*

  21. tits mcgee December 31, 2013

    why does she keep dropping the ball on promo every era, but had time to write pointless drivel. she needs a real team to guide her. Geez

  22. The truth hurts December 31, 2013

    Oh no! vh1 which has been completely irrelevant for several years called Tropico a flop whatever will I do, lana is DOOMED *sarcasm*. I fail to see how a MUSIC VIDEO can be a bigger flop than albums like BRITNEY JEAN or AZEALIA BANKS. It’s a half hour music video with 5 million combined views , most people do not have the attention spans to last more then 5 minutes. Tropico was made for the fans to close off the born to die era and signal the new ULTRAVIOLENCE one – a purpose it has done perfectly, I fail to see how it’s a flop.

  23. beys fans are mostly insecure f*** December 31, 2013

    STFU u freakin f***! You kno damn well yall was dancin to Ciara at one point so stop it! Its always beys insecure dilusional ass fans coming for every other female artist smh you can love beys boring ass all you want but there is no need to diss others unless of course you feel threatened!

  24. Iconic cici December 31, 2013

    The hive mad because all Beyonce does is uses them they are f****** pathetic and nothing but slaves to that b****.

    Awwwww i love you CiCi, im sure next year will be an amazing/successful year for you c squad got your back babe, f*** all you h*** who think otherwise.

  28. …. December 31, 2013

    lmao @ ‘after 10yrs plus of doing this’…. sis you’ve been in the industry a good 9yrs, and made some sort of impact for about 4 or maybe 5 of those years. don’t act like you a vet or achieved some noteworthy s***. 5 records & almost a decade in the game and you done sold a measly 7million albums WW.
    do better, put your all in this s***, leave the hollywood socialites alone, leave the fashion industry alone, develop your f****** craft! Rih came after you and she’s already at Icon status, let that be your motivation to work harder. smfh

  29. royalkev December 31, 2013

    I’m not even a part of the C squad and I have enough patience to wait for Ciara’s next move. I think we need to cut her some slack! We don’t know what obstacles she’s facing. It could be anything from label trouble to being reluctant to announce that she’s pregnant (because she’s still in the early stages). Ciara doesn’t owe anyone anything, but her music. We are not her friends or family and we don’t have a right to know anything personal that she does not wish to divulge yet. This reminds me of how everyone complained about waiting for Bey’s new music, but didn’t understand the wait until she explained it all in the end. Sometimes you have to let people be. Ciara’s happy, so just allow her to sort everything out on her own! If your not even a fan none of this should concern you at all.

  30. Rosie December 31, 2013

    10 years into your career and you’re just getting started. LOL.

    Dead at y’all using an irrelevant VH1 (who?) list to call Lana a flop. I doubt they have any credibility. Still doesn’t change the fact that she outsold Cierror’s last three albums combined.

  31. Navy Commander December 31, 2013

    Chile I’m not even gonna do it. Good luck Ciara.

  32. anonymous December 31, 2013

    The beginning of what? Another flop year? lololol.

  33. Stephy Tha Lambily December 31, 2013

    Flop.

  34. smh December 31, 2013

    Last 3? You mean 4, and she’s on course to outsell her entire discography. 7million albums WW are ciara’s receipts, and she and her fans swear she been killing the game for a smooth decade. embarrassing

  36. Rosie December 31, 2013

    LMAO @ SMH. Lana will easily outsell his discography worldwide with Ultraviolence.

  37. anonymous December 31, 2013

    Dead @the Ci-flop stans claiming that people are hating on Ciara when all these flop stans do is drag other artists. did it ever occur to you that Ciara gets dragged because yall come for everybody elses favorite as if its our fault that her career is struggling. yall like to drag Beyonce and Rihanna, but at least they can still sell albums, while Ciara has some of the lowest album sales of the year out of all the other R&B artists. She still hasnt even sold 200k yet and most of these “so called stans” probably dont even buy her music themsleves.

  38. FutureCIARA December 31, 2013

    I respect you for that @ROYALKEV

    As for that b**** @Rosie, kick rocks! Its a shame to see you back on Lana’s p**** when you just switched sides to the Beyhive earlier this month……you were riding HARD for Beys success and you dont even get like that for Lana..

    Im curious as to what you’ll do when Ultraflop bombs!!

    Lana doesnt need fans like you doll, Hang it up….. And what a f****** coincidence that you are lurking yet again in another Ciara post..

    She loves you to though, You see, this letter also included you @Rosie, your her #1 FAN b****! I don’t know whether to welcome you to #Csquad or not.. Im soo confused

    Save this b*******.

  43. Rihboy January 1, 2014

    I honestly feel sorry for her. It seems like she is always penning letters of excuses to why she barely gets by. She hasnt done one thing to make sure she will be remembered years from now. The beginning needs to be a new team…new marketing strategy, new everything. Maybe she needs to create an alter ego, and go bananas crazy…..it helped Bey and Nicki.

  44. Casual January 1, 2014

    Good luck, Ciara!

  45. Beyond Amazing (Cause Bey really is!) January 1, 2014

    Girl good bye. Instead of continuing to promote her album she decided to be Future’s call girl, Goodbye.

  46. CIARA IS LAZY January 1, 2014

    I think what Ciara is trying to say is that her personal life comes first … and that it is important to balance ur professional and personal life…

    It is fine to make ur personal life a priority but here is the problem with CIARA …

    Lots of BIG artists like Beyonce and Alicia Keys balance personal and professional lives well.

    the difference is that when ALICIA, KEYSHIA COLE, BEYONCE etc… decide to drop a CD, they WORK HARD and go all in….

    If u committ to something then give 100 percent!!!

    I mean Keyshia Cole only sold like 370,000 CDs but she made her money on tour… She even did a European tour.

    Alicia & Beyonce balance their lives out but when they punch in that clock they are not HALF A**… THEY WORK!

    If u are gonna drop an album then work ur songs… promote ur album more than one week after it is dropped and then do a tour.

    This sounds like nothing more than excuses.

    It is soooooo sad to see the most talented stage act out there not do shows or promote her music.

    She should be an arena artist by now. I mean even Keyshia Cole is doing 3000 – 5000 seat venues… SIGH

  47. ENOUGH ONIKA (NEW & IMPROVED) January 1, 2014

    I just don’t know how many time she’s gonna write the SAME letter of “hope in the future” every time her album(s) flop. I like Ciara, I truly do but it’s the SAME thing every album era; she hypes it up like it’ll be THE BIGGEST AND BEST ERA ever, shuffles through countless singles in hopes of one sticking and even if one does, she STILL drops the ball after he album comes out, MOSTLY DUE TO HER STANS NOT BUYING SH*T! I just don’t know anymore….

  48. princess pocketbook January 2, 2014

    Seriously, I thought I was the only one that thought Beyonce ripped off Rihanna, Tamar Braxton, K. Michelle, Ciara. I would never deny Beyonce’s talent. However, I recognized the similarities immediately.

  49. princess pocketbook January 2, 2014

    Idk why people dislike Ciara. I think she is so talented. Her music is refreshing and funky and fun. Her looks are a solid 10. Ciara puts all types of women to shame. She seems very nice. I just don’t like when she plays shy b/c when she hits that stage ain’t nothing shy about her. I would like to see her act more. I wish her the best and will support her.
