Ciara New Song “Sorry” Is About A Famous Person She Used To Date; 50 Cent?

This Thursday (September 13), platinum-selling singer Ciara is scheduled to debut her “Sorry” visual on BET‘s ‘106 & Park’. The heartfelt song is about a famous person that she used to date. She was in love with him but he never said sorry for mistreating her, which is the reason why they broke up. Is she talking about 50 Cent? Essence caught up with Cici and they discussed her new track as well as her upcoming album, One Woman Army. Below are some excerpts:

Your song “Sorry” is out this week and on it you’re pretty candid about a relationship gone wrong. 
I feel like I’ve evolved as a woman, and you get to feel that on the song. I literally had to stop myself from crying when I was writing it. You can kinda hear it on the song. I wanted to just go and vent and be free in my music. It’s my way of saying something that I’ve wanted to say to someone for a long time. It’s very real to my heart. I think it’s really cool to embrace the pain of something that may have hurt you and be able to express it through music.

Is it safe to assume the song is about 50 Cent or Amar’e Stoudemire?
It’s safe to assume that the song is about someone that I really loved. [Amar’e] was a sweetheart to me, but it’s definitely not about him.

Is this someone famous?
It’s someone that I really loved. They’ll know who they are when they hear the song.

The title of the album One Woman Army is pretty tough.
It was the best title to help me express where I am as a woman. It does represent independence but it’s not overly independent. I talk about needing a soldier; someone that’s going to stand on the frontline with me. It summarizes everything that I’ve been through and everywhere I want to go as a woman. 

Ciara will debut “Sorry” on BET’s ‘106 & Park’ this Thursday (September 13).

Teyana Taylor Covers VIBE Vixen’s Premiere Fashion Issue; Speaks On G.O.O.D. Music & Lesbian Rumors

G.O.O.D. Music’s artist and fashionista Teyana Taylor is covering VIBE Vixen‘s Premiere Fashion issue. Inside, she speaks on her relationship with G.O.O.D. Music, fashion and lesbian rumors. Below is an excerpt and some quotes:

G.O.O.D. Music’s one and only femme Teyana Taylor graces VIBE Vixen‘s Premier Fashion Issue. Kanye’s newest protégé has championed a style that’s influenced several young women in a rising generation of style. Bridging male-dominated urban looks with ultra-feminine, sexy sensibility, this fashion-forward chick deserves mad credit for reviving and revamping the trend! Before passing judgement, take a closer look at our cover story to see why this Harlem World native gets a Vixen stamp of approval on the style front.

Teyana on what she’s learned from 2 Chainz:

He’s the closest to my situation. Being signed to another great person before coming to Def Jam, the situation is not really working in your favor and now look. He’s showing me that everything is about timing, so don’t ever think that your time is not going to come. My season is coming up soon.

Teyana on her relationship with the fellas from G.O.O.D. Music:

All of them play all day, and I love that. With work ,everyone is down to business. It’s good that everyone has a serious side but also a sense of humor. It definitely makes work fun. That’s the good thing about working with the boys. They spoil you. I’m a spoiled brat [laughs].

Teyana on being a role model:

I do think the way I dress and the way I brand myself–I’m very proud of myself that I can inspire young girls. If you have a body, embrace it. You ain’t always got to be sexy. Sometimes less is more. Like less make up is more. If I want to be in Jordans, a half top and shorts then that’s what I’m going to wear. Call me gay, call me what you want to…And now everybody is doing it.

Teyana on being judged by her fashions:

I feel like I’m at a point where I don’t have to do that anymore. Once I got older and matured more, it was still a “damned if you do, damned if you don’t” situation. When I was dressed in my streetwear, I was gay. Then, I do one shoot, show some skin and now I’m not a virgin. I can’t win for losing.
