Ciara has been through quite a whirlwind of events over the past 12 months, but it looks like everything has completely changed for the better.
The “I Bet” singer is now a new mommy to her baby son Future, despite currently being single after her breakup with ex-fiancé Future, but she seems to be in a happy place.
CiCi stopped by the Breakfast Club this morning to promote her upcoming album Jackie, where she addressed a slew of topics with DJ Envy and Angela Yee, as Charlamagne Tha God was absent, and gave fans an update on everything.
Speaking on her status with her ex, how they co-parent, and what a blessing her son has been were some of the highlights of the interview.
On why her and Future broke up:
“It clearly didn’t work out. But I have the greatest gift, the greatest joy of my life is my son. I feel like everything in life happens for a reason and my son has been the greatest gift that God has given me in my life, and been the most game-changing thing that has happened in my life in a necessary way.”
“I can’t really break all that down. I don’t even think it really matters to tell you the truth, especially when the ending is as great as it is with my son. That’s what worked out—my son.”
On how the two are doing right now as co-parents:
“We’re cool. We have a child together and I think as a parent it’s important to be able to communicate even if you don’t talk. We don’t talk every day. There’s no need to. But my son is clearly the connection between he and I. As parents I think it’s important to be able to communicate. I like to stay happy and I like to live life light and make the best of life.”
On how her son has changed her life for the better:
“My son has given me so much clarity and I couldn’t be any more clear than I needed to be. I definitely know a lot of things that I don’t want. I really know. I have to make sure I’m making the best decisions to make the universe right for him.”
On why she dated Future, despite having babies with multiple women:
“I’m human and I went with love in that situation. You can be with someone that has no kids and he can be the biggest jerk in the world. At the end of the day, I roll with love and my son’s father I really believe had the greatest intentions to love me and a beautiful thing came from that.”
She also talked about her new album Jackie on the way:
“I want to take people on a journey with me, just to hear my voice and where I am right now. My whole new chapter of life. It’s just a whole new thing happening with me and what better way to express it than through music.”
Lastly, she even addressed the alleged shade from Tamar Braxton, where she liked an insulting meme of Ciara singing:
“If she was trying to say something crazy, I really don’t care. I’m gonna take it as she wasn’t trying to do anything funny and she was being sincere.”
We’re glad to see Ciara in such a great place, and we can’t wait to see what’s in store for her album.
