Ciara dropped her “I Bet” video then hit the club to celebrate while Monica and Shannon Brown partied in New Orleans. See their pics inside…

Ciara is ready for her close-up. The singer/model has a slew of projects coming down the pipeline, so it’s only natural that she hits the Hollywood party scene.

Last night, photopraphers spotted her heading into an LA-hot spot to wind down from her busy shooting schedule. A few days ago, we told you about her upcoming tv gig. She’s starring in a new NBC variety show named “I Can Do That!” with Marlon Wayans, hitting the screen this summer.

And on the music front, the mom of Future Jr. is readying her next cd Jackie (named after her mom). Yesterday, she dropped a visual for “I Bet” from the disc. The Harmony Samuels-produced song was inspired by her breakup with former fiance and baby father Future. In the Hannah Lux Davis-directed clip, CiCi looks sexy in ballerina flats, a white leotard, and even goes topless. Question to Future – who the heck were you cheating on Ciara with??????

I bet you start loving me
As soon as I start loving someone else
Somebody better than you
I bet you start needing me
As soon as you see me with someone else
Somebody other than you
And I know that it hurts
You know that it hurts your pride
But you thought the grass was greener on the
Other side
I bet you start loving me
As soon as I start loving someone else
Somebody better than you

In New Orleans, Louisiana…..

“So Gone” songstress Monica traded Atlanta for some fun in the bayou when she headed to New Orleans for the weekend.

Monica was accompanied by her hubby, NBA baller Shannon Brown.

The duo’s appearance in the city was unannounced and unplanned – and they sent the crowd into tizzy once their presence was announced by the DJ. They couple hit up a local club and even dined at a restaurant owned by former No Limit rapper Mia X. P.S. Monica’s been down with the No Limit crew (especially C-Murder) for MANY years.

In addition to posing with excited fans, Mo also bumped into the mother of deceased No Limit rapper rapper Soulja Slim (not pictured).

After dinner and clubbing, the two were spotted walking down New Orleans’ Bourbon Street. Probably sipped on a couple of frozen Hand Grenades before snapping these pics. You have to enjoy your time away from the kids…..
