Ciara breaksdown her new album and career goals in the upcoming issue of Paper Magazine. We would say that Ciara is just about as delusional as Cassie when it comes to her music But… There actually might be some light at the end of the tunnel for Ciara:
PM: What’s the best and worst part of being famous?
Ciara: The best part is being able to travel everywhere, being able to reach and touch millions of people — that’s really cool. Cool gifts are cool. The worst part? It would have to be maybe just like… at this point, I don’t know. I had a worst part a while ago sacrificing time with family. But at this point in my career, it’s all good.
PM: Do you have a style icon?
Ciara: Honestly, I used to always try to create one. I don’t think I really have one. But someone’s fashion that I’ve loved over the years is Jennifer Lopez. I think she’s been very consistent and has done such a great job when it comes to fashion. But I get inspired by the everyday girl that’s fly. When I see a fly girl, I think, “That’s hot.” I’m inspired by that.
PM: What are some of your guilty pleasures?
Ciara: I do love searching the Internet. I like looking at fun videos on YouTube, surfing some of the sites. Even when I do go on the gossip sites, I’m not really into reading comments unless the headline is good stuff then sometimes I’ll look. But I like looking at the photos, and just like looking at media in general. You know what I was watching last night? I love Forensic Files. I love that they show how they solve murder mysteries.
PM: What is your ultimate goal as a musician?
Ciara: My ultimate goal for myself as an artist is to be known as an icon, a legend. I do hope to be very wealthy. Beyond just my career, I hope to create a legacy for my family that’s never been created before. And to be an icon, to be a legend one day. Tons of Grammy’s would be great one day. I hope to travel around the world and to meet every possible fan I can meet around the world. I would love to be an icon that’s so amazing and so strong that one day people can be like, “You can be the next Ciara.”
Icon… Legend… Janet Jackson Status???
