    Trying to garner anticipation I see….

  11. FutureCIARA March 12, 2014

    I hop Ciara & Future perform together, if she has had that baby by then.

  12. FutureCIARA March 12, 2014

    I think it will be a pretty good show, if they don’t try to make it about those 2 flops and phonies K Michelle & Tamar… they need to have a seat in the audience and not on stage this year with their stale ass shade and drama.

  13. Q March 12, 2014
