Ciara Defends #LevelUp Post After Getting Blasted By All The Single Ladies

Published

on

Ciara got blasted by a slew of fans over the weekend after sharing a video singling out the singles.

On Saturday, the mother of two posted a video of Pastor John Gray suggesting “a wife is not the presence of a ring, but it is the presence of your character.”

In the clip, Gray, who has been known to make homophobic comments on social media, preached, “Too many women wanna be married, but you’re walking in the spirit of ‘girlfriend.’ When you carry yourself like a wife, a husband will find you.”

Cici captioned the video, “#LevelUp.”

#LevelUp. Don’t Settle.

The post offended a slew of single women, who claimed it was a complete dig towards women who have not tied the knot. Many people also blasted the star for forgetting about her own personal woes with ex-fiancé and baby daddy, Future.

Following the backlash, the singer, who is now married to Seattle Seahawks quarterback, Russell Wilson, seemingly defended her message by explaining what she went through years ago. “I was once that girl wanting to be loved a certain way but was making the wrong choices,” she wrote on Twitter.

She explained, “I was a single mom sitting at home, and I then realized that the perfect love I was looking for was how God loves me, how He wants me to be loved, and who He was calling me to be as a mom and as a woman. That’s when I realized married or not married… I needed to love myself. #LevelUp.”
