The Bey-Hive and the Navy became allies to attack Ciara after her interview with The Guardian where she said Beyonce and Rihanna are not her
competition. When the article from the interview circulated online, Ciara’s Instagram
page simultaneously erupted into swarms of bees and hundreds of
anchors. Her interview with The Guardian below…..
“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.”
