Partying In St. Tropez: Ciara Performs & Party It Up At The VIP Room

The talented Ciara was spotted performing and partying at the VIP Room in St. Tropez, France. St. Tropez is located on the French Riviera, and it is known today for its famous and extremely wealthy summertime guests. It has been dubbed the ‘playground to jetsetters, fashion models, and millionaires’, and it is most-enduringly known as the place where the iconic Brigitte Bardot was “discovered” and for its role in the liberation of southern France during World War II (Source). While in France, Ci Ci spoke to This Day Live, and spoke on if she would be joining L.A. Reid over at Epic Records, traveling overseas, performing, as well as her excitement for her closest friends Monica, Lala and Kim Kardashian’s weddings and whether they’ve inspired her to ‘tie the knot’. Below are some excerpts:

There are reports that L.A. Reid joined Epic Label Group and that you were going to be an artist under his roster. Can you confirm that?

I don’t even know what you’re talking about [laughs]. Nah, I’m totally just playing. I think you have to ask L.A. kinda what’s going on. I can’t really comment on what’s happening and the system. I can’t really say too much. I don’t really know too much about the breakdown of everything.

Take It Off: Kelly Rowland Goes Topless For Vibe’s August/September 2011 Juice Issue

Platinum-selling singer Kelly Rowland is gracing the August/September 2011 “Juice” issue of Vibe magazine. On the cover, Kelly posed topless. She talked about being more appreciated overseas than here in the states, her current relationship with her former manager/Beyoncé’s father Mathew Knowles and sex toys shopping. Kelly’s new album Here I Am is now in stores and online.  Below are a few excerpts:

The last album didn’t do well in the States. It did better overseas, particularly in Europe. Do you feel more appreciated in Europe? 

 No, not really. People still compare me to B over there. I said in an interview recently, ‘You know, if you guys would be a little bit more intelligent and ask me about myself we’ll have a much better interview.’ You can’t want a story from me and keep asking me about the past.

When you walked away from that last meeting with Mathew, did you feel an “exhale” moment? 

I did, but I also felt like, ‘Oh my God, what have I done?!’ I stayed in the house for two days. I was sad. It was like a funeral. I had to deaden that situation in order to start fresh. That’s a very long time to have the same manager and the same label.
