Take a look at a few of the excerpts from the interview and the full editorial spread below.On dancing:
On Michael Jackson:
“I love to express my sensuality, it makes me feel good. I think that goes for all women, we all want to express our sexuality. It is a form of power, it makes you feel self assured, in control. Every woman wants to feel sexy, and I like to play with hints and suggestions, turn it into a performance.”
On new music:
“He’s the most important world presence in the history of music.”
On being a mother:
“It will be an authentic album, real. I talk openly and honestly about my emotions as a woman, mother, about my ambitions, but also my vulnerability, my happy moments and my sad moments.”
Ciara’s upcoming sixth studio album will be preceded by its first single “I Bet,” rumored to hit radio on January 27, 2015.
“You know, now that I have Future with me, my angel, I am happy. For him I want to be the best mother in the world, and also the best business woman. I want to realize all my ambitions, and I know deep down in my heart that I will.”
Coming in the Spring of this year, the album will feature production and songwriting credits from Dr. Luke, Polow Da Don, and Diane Warren.
