Ciara and Rapper Future Engaged

Ciara and Rapper Future Engaged


Singer Ciara will be walking down the isle shortly with rapper Future. The goodies singer Hubby popped the question with a massive 15-carat diamond engagement ring at her 28th birthday party at the Moët Rosé Lounge at Hotel Derek in Houston on Monday night. Continue reading

Future Ready To Sue Drake After Being Dropped From Tour

Once again, Drake has decided to ruin my life, or at the very least, my Monday.

One of the main reasons I decided to buy tickets to Aubrey’s upcoming tour was due to its strong supporting acts: Miguel and Future.

Do you know how long I’ve been waited to bop around like a damn fool shouting “TONY MONTANA?!” Now I have to wait even longer.

To be fair to Drake, though, I can’t completely blame him for getting rid of Ciara’s boyfriend.

In a recent interview with Billboard magazine, Future said, “Drake made an album that is full of hits but it doesn’t grab you. They’re not possessive; they don’t make you feel the way I do.”

However, Future’s managers reportedly argued with the magazine that the quotes were off the record and taken out of context. They were edited out of the piece, but were still floating around on the Twitter.

Page Six says Future was fired, but negotiations “started to bring him back late last week.”

However, Future bailed for good once Drake’s camp demanded he take some financial concessions. In other words, a financial spanking.

Future was set to earn $ 40,000 from each show and will reportedly now file a lawsuit this week against Drake for lost wages, which is about $ 1.5 million.

Someone owes me a discount on my tickets, though.

ON THE SET: Nicki Minaj, Khaled & Future Shoot ” I Wanna Be With You” Vid, Ciara Joins In

Ciara joined her new bestie Nicki Minaj on the Miami set of the "I Wanna Be With You" video yesterday.  Check out who all was on set doing what they do best–Instagram Flexin’–inside…

The track "I Wanna be With You", which stars Nicki Minaj, DJ Khaled, Rick Ross & Future, is already getting a video treatment.  The newest single off Khaled’s Suffering From Success album already has some buzz due to Khaled’s public marriage "proposal" to Nicki.  So we guess that video will follow that whole PR stunt.

DJ Khaled Drops “I Wanna Be With You” FT. Nicki Minaj, Future & Rick Ross + Nicki Laughs At The “Proposal” & Says Khaled Was “Kidding”

 photo khaled-nicki_zps179b17b2.jpg

Nicki Minaj & DJ Khaled show why that publicity stunt of a proposal was just that….publicity….as their new song "I Wanna Be With You" hits the internet streets today.  Check out Khaled’s newest track inside, plus Nicki laughing off his marriage proposal….

"I Wanna Be With You" is Khaled’s newest single off his upcoming Suffering From Success album (out Spetember 24th).  He tapped Nicki Minaj, Rick Ross & Future for the track.  And now, we can see why Khaled pulled that 10 carat diamond ring out of his pocket and "proposed" to Nicki on video.  It’s all to pub the feel of the song.

Nicki hit up Funkmaster Flex‘s show last night to say she never took "her brother" Khaled seriously and it was all just his way of pubbing the track:

“I was shocked just like the rest of the world and I was cracking up laughing with the rest of the world ’cause Khaled is a master at what he does.  It was just another way for him to kinda give the world a glimpse on the feeling of this record.”

“Khaled is my brother and Khaled was not serious with that damn proposal, ya’ll. Please let it go. He was kidding.  He’s not attracted to me, he doesn’t like me. We’re brother and sister.”

We figured.  Khaled still hit up DJ Felli Fel on Power 106 afterwards and claimed that he wasn’t giving up because she could say yes next year.  he seemed serious, but we dont believe him.

And the track is exactly what you would expect. Khaled adlibs Kirk Franklin-style, Future brings his most basic repetitive auto tuned "flow" to create a "chorus," Nicki spits about her million dollar punani, and Ricky closes it out with a few bars about his riches. Check it below:

The couple managed to have a good time, despite Future’s persistent baby mama drama and legal woes.  He’s now engaged in a legal battle with baby mama #1, Jessica Smith, who’s seeking additional child support for their 10-year-old son, and he’s going to court with baby mama #2, Brittni Mealy, who’s asking the courts for back child support from June and July.

But with all that he’s experiencing, Future made it clear that Cici is someone he can turn to for support.  After their night at Reign,  he tweeted, "My Patna In Crime #QueenC.

Ciara COVERS “FADER” Magazine, Future Questions If Rihanna’s BEEF With CiCi Affects Their “Loveeeeeee Song” TRACK

 photo ciara-fader-june-july-543x800.jpg

Ciara covers the latest issue of FADER Magazine when she promotes the upcoming release of the Ciara disc.  Meanwhile, her boyfriend Future is speaking out about her feud with Rihanna and if it’s affecting the release of their "Loveeeeeee Song" single.  Get the deets inside…

"Body Party" singer Ciara covers the June/July Summer issue of FADER magazine where she touts her long-delayed album Ciara (July 9th). Inside, the singer, who was recently served with court documents during an LA Pride Event, opens up about her romance with rapper Future, who recently landed the cover of The Source.  

While Ciara’s feud with Rihanna has been well-documented, Future was asked by MTV News if it’s had an impact on his relationship with the bad gyal, whom he worked with on "Loveeeeeee Song".  He said, "We never shot a video, we never performed it. I don’t know whether it was because of that situation or if just the time hasn’t come up."   Hmmm…considering the shade Riri throws at Ciara, we’re pretty sure THAT "relationship" has been discussed by team Rihanna.  And with quotables galore.

The rapper also said he’s cautious about talking about Ciara too much because he doesn’t want their love to overshadow his music.

Sometimes it’s hard to open up about your personal life, your relationship because you always want the music to be in the forefront. You want the music to be the biggest carrier of everything that you represent."

VIDEO: Ciara’s “Body Party” VIDEO Starring Future

 photo ScreenShot2013-04-22at123435PM.png 

Ciara revealed the visual for hit her single "Body Party" today and her boyfriend Future stars as her leading man.  Watch the clip inside…

 

Ciara dropped the visual for her "Body Party" video today.  Produced by Mike WiLL Made It and written by Future, Cici’s boyfriend, the video tells the story of how they met.  While wearing a sleeveless t-shirt with the word "Ballin" on it, harem pants and black sunglasses, Ciara, backed by a group of dancers,  uses her sexy movements to start a "body party" and catch Future’s eye from across the room. 

Future throws CiCi a smooth line and predicts that they will become a couple….because he can see the "future".

While talking about the video, which pays homage to the Atlanta house party scene, she said, "It’s been so many years since I’ve done a video in Atlanta.  That alone was refreshing, but went beyond that. We captured the spirit of the song and the feeling of having a body party. It’s the perfect combination."

The video features cameos from Ludacris, Trinidad James, and Jazze Pha.

"Body Party" will appear on Ciara’s upcoming album Ciara (July 9th).
