Beyonce and Rihanna’s fans joined forces to attack Ciara after she said in an interview with The Guardian that the two singers are not her competition. Below is the article from The Guardian…
“Despite her success – 2010’s Basic Instinct is the only one of her albums not to reach the US top5 – she’s never become a household name like Rihanna or Beyoncé.
“You know what I think?” she asks, rhetorically. “Everything’s about timing. I’ve had records just as big as those artists, I’ve had No 1 songs around the world. My biggest competition is me.” That and her old label, perhaps. After Basic Instinct only reached No 44, she left LaFace/Jive, announcing on Facebook that they had not supported her enough. Her next album, Ciara, released on Epic, duly went to No 2. “There’s no doubt in my mind how high up this train can go,” she says calmly. “I faced those challenges. I don’t see myself beneath Beyoncé and Jay Z; I don’t see myself above them. I’m in my own world, hungry to grow.”
After this segment of the interview circulated online, Ciara’s Instagram page simultaneously erupted into swarms of bees and hundreds of anchors. See more photos below……..
