Ahead of putting the final touches on her long-awaited seventh studio, the follow-up to 2015’s ‘Jackie,’ R&B stageblazer Ciara has been quite the busy bee.
As anticipation builds for the set – kicked off by party-starting singles ‘Level Up’ and ‘Dose’ – look inside to see the stops from the Grammy-winner’s whirlwind weekend:
Just days after making history by headlining the very first Soul Cycle concert – a private affair for 300 lucky guests within the Soul Cycle community (including the likes of Hollywood stars, fitness influencers and instructors, and more)…
…the songstress and husband Russell Wilson took to Seattle’s Tacoma Dome to attend the ‘Emerald City’s stop for Michelle Obama‘s ‘Becoming’ book tour (March 24).
Less than 24 hours after briefly joining the former First Lady on stage to inspire the 18,000 attendees, Cici accompanied her husband again- this time for NFL Annual Meetings to speak to a group of more than 200 spouses and guests of NFL owners, coaches and executives.
Dishing on everything from the juggling act of balancing stardom and parenthood, the “lives of football wives,” and more, Russ and Ci had all eyes on them as they brazenly discussed the hot topics in a forum moderated by Jane Goodell, the wife of NFL commissioner, Roger Goodell.
“It really is a balancing act,” Ciara said. “I call it organized chaos. One of the best ways to truly have balance in life when you have schedules that are always moving and you’re always on the go and there’s so many goals you’re trying to accomplish, you have to have a schedule. So for us, we’ll create a schedule for both of our worlds individually and also collectively has been a game-changer for us. It kind of gives us a map, a blueprint to the day or the week or even the month for that matter. Ultimately it’s about finding balance in it all and just always communicating, trying to map things out as best as we can. Also our kids go to school, and there’s all these things you want to try to do with them—our son just started playing football, we want to be able to catch moments like that. Then we want to pick our daughter up from school. We just try to balance it all out, and the best way is having a schedule as much as you can to map out all the chaos.”
