This morning, CiCi had plenty to chat about with the “TODAY” show co-hosts. Before she hit the stage to perform the remix to her hit single “I Bet” at Rockefeller Plaza, she talked about her White House date with Super Bowl champ Russell Wilson. When asked to dish the dirt on her evening with the Seattle Seahawks QB she spilled,
“Life is amazing and I had such an amazing experience at the White House. We had a great time. It was just so amazing. Life is pretty sweet, I can say that.”
The mother of Baby Future then hopped on stage to break out her dance moves for the Toyota concert series. Check it:
After rocking the stage, CiCi came back to chop it up about her newly found confidence after entering motherhood. She said having her son has changed her life in such a great way and that it has given her a whole new level of confidence. The “Body Party” songstress said her baby boy is featured on one of her tracks that written by Diane Warren and co-produced by CiCi with Harmony Samuels. She said,
“He has a cute little laughing moment. He’s really my good luck charm and just a ball of energy and a ray of light. He’s truly the best thing that has happened to me.”
Ciara also talked about naming her new album after her mother and shared how her mother jokes about being her executive producer and will be signing autographs. Ha!
The “Dance Like We’re Making Love” singer also touched on that extra sexy lap dance she performed on a male fan during her opening night in Chicago. She said she wanted to try something she has never done before.
“It is fun to bring up a fan up on stage and have that cool interaction and give that special experience. That’s what my tour is about, making a special time with my friends.”
Her beauty tips for the ladies: Tons of water and have fun!
One tip for the guys: “Just keep it cool and don’t try to hard.”
