I'm really hoping Ciara success with her new album. I hope LA Reid does well by Ciara. I've been rooting for her ever since Goodies.
I keep hearing Goodies/1,2 step on the radios here in nyc and I nearly crash because I bump that hard.
I was in 10th grade in a college class called Study Skills. Somehow, we ended up on the subject of assassinated presidents and the teacher busted out crying over JFK. When a student asked him what was wrong, he yelled at us to "get the **** out, you idiots" even though still had an hour left of class. We had a sub for the rest of the year.
I remember seeing KERI stans buying "Ride" on iTunes. Keri stans. I thought that her ass was relevant and then all that mess w/ BET banning the video,and BI being pushed back... I mean this could've been handled so much better than it was.
To my fans:
This week the net has been a buzz of the rumor that I have been dropped from my label. At this point that rumor is false.. It is true that I have asked and I pray that my label will release me. I have had some great times and success with my label, but sometimes like all great things, it's at that point where I feel we don't share the same views on who I am as an artist. The past two albums have been very frustrating for me. At times there were songs I chose to lead a project and I was ignored! This project, I even tried to get "Gimmie Dat" started I spent tens of thousands of my own money only to hear the radio PDs tell me my label didn't want the song played. I even spent more than one hundred thousand dollars out of my pocket on the video to bring my vision to it and still no label support. I do understand that some labels are not financially supporting their artists and I have become one of them. You, my fans, know that I strive to do my best to deliver to my you the best songs and creative vision I possibly can. I'm dedicated to my music, performance and to my fans! I've tried to be a team player with the label only to have compromised what I truly believed and was not given the right opportunity to promote and inform my fans of the release of this album. I have so much of me as an artist I still want to give to the world and my fans. A release would allow me to go be creative with people who care and understand me as an artist. In a short time, I will be able to bring to you a new music energy and a visual excitement! Thank you so much for standing by me through the good, bad, and the confusion. I love you all.
