Ciara graces the cover of Paper Magazine ‘s September 2013 issue where she talks about her new self-titled album , rapper-boyfriend Future , and much more.
“He’s very understanding,” she says about Future, “and he’s my best friend. It’s important to have a feeling that you can talk about anything and know a person’s going to be there and support you. When we’re together, it’s not about who we are. I feel very normal, very safe and loved.”
Photographed by Danielle Levitt and styled by Natalie Joos at Fast Ashleys Studio, the singer rocks exotic, feminine see-through tops and leather skirts by Marc Jacobs, Christian Dior , and Erdem — to name a few.
