It was a valiant effort, but do you think Ciara nailed the National Anthem?

Ci Ci stopped by Cincinnati to sing the Star Spangled Banner moments before the MLB All-Star game. With her hair laid, face slayed and three background singers ready to serve, Ciara had all she needed to perform the difficult tune. Take a listen to the “Body Party” singer belt out the National Anthem below to see how she did.

While Ciara’s boo, Russell Wilson was excited to see her hit those high notes…

Other folks on Twitter were a bit more underwhelmed with Ci Ci’s actual delivery.

    When & Why Did Our Moms Become Less Than Human

    Reading the lyrics to CIARA’S “I’m Out” (feat. Nicki Minaj)
    I am puzzled by something, perhaps someone can help?

    Who is responsible for influencing or conditioning many young Americans of African descent to characterize our moms, sisters, grandmas, daughters and aunts as less than human creatures?

    Growing up in the 60s, year after year I’d roll out of bed in the morning, crank up my 9v transistor radio listening to contemporary sounds, including a new genre of American music its artists, composers, lyricists and producers called Motown.

    My Motown musician friends wrote and performed music that made me smile, wanting to dance, celebrate life and wanting to experience the love between a man and a woman they were constantly telling me about. Every hour of every day I could tune in my radio and listen to my talented Motown musician friends singing songs praising and loving women

    Listening to these musicians celebrating life and loving women conditioned me to believe they are good, peaceful people deserving of respect, admiration and a large “Thank you” for sharing their musical talent with me, my friends and neighbors.

    What I am trying to figure out is why today, many of my Motown friend’s children and grandchildren are writing contemporary music performance lyrics that clearly are demeaning and HATING on each other, as well as writing lyrics demeaning women, our moms, sisters, grandmas, daughters and aunts, characterizing women as witches and bhores, essentially less than human not deserving of respect? Which is pretty much how greedy or genuinely ignorant early Euros characterized the African people they abducted and enslaved.

    What happened? Why have females fallen out of favor with many young people who write rap hip hop performances?

    Another question. Today when ten-year-old American kids wake up, tune into their fav contemporary radio station, listening to lyrics describing anti-social activities and behaviors their parents, community and educators are telling them are harmful to them, their neighbors and community, what opinions, if any, will these 5th grade children form about the music performers writing music lyrics describing anti-social behaviors and activities that often emotionally traumatize and physically harm individual peaceful people and the neighborhoods they live or work in?

    Who is responsible for influencing some or many Americans of African descent to view females as less than human *itches?

    What subliminal messages are today’s youngsters learning when they hear Americans of African descent characterizing women, aka our moms, sisters, grandmas, daughters and aunts, as inhuman bvtches, not worthy of respect?

    Thanks.

Reports: Chante Moore Accused Of Financing New Album With Stolen Money

Published

on

Looks like Chante Moore has got some explaining to do!

The “Chante’s Got A Man” singer is being looped in a messy fraud and racketeering case that essentially led to two men claiming they were defrauded out of $3.6 million.

According to reports, the former “R&B Divas: LA” star knowingly accepted money that was fraudulently obtained by a criminal enterprise and using it to produce her latest album and artificially inflate her sales.

The two men are have filed a lawsuit and claim the defendants used some of their money to buy Moore plane tickets for her musical tour, lavish her with gifts, fund the production of and marketing campaign for her seventh album, “The Rise of the Phoenix,” and even to “pay off her significant personal debt.”

They also claim their money was used to open a hair bar in Georgia, and buy a house.

The plaintiffs say Moore knew the money was obtained illegally and the investments made into her career “were designed in whole or in part to conceal or disguise the nature, the location, the source, the ownership, and the control of the proceeds” of the alleged illegal activity.

It gets even messier though. The two men also claim the money was used to “artificially enhance” her album sales through iTunes purchases. Since they believe their money was used to “directly used to finance the launching of Moore’s latest resurgence effort with her new album, including all advertising and marketing efforts put forth therewith,” they believe they are entitled to any profits from the record.

If you’re wondering what Moore has to say about the situation, she is denying the allegations and wants the case thrown out.

Back in July we caught up with Moore who gushed about her new album and not feeling pressure to stay relevant in the changing music climate.
