R&B singer Ciara recently announced her pregnancy after a whirlwind 2013 that included a new album and an engagement to rapper beau Future (complete with a 15-carat diamond ring). With so many positive things going on in her life, the singer has no time for those who post nasty things about her online.
She recently wrote an open letter about the state of social media, specifically to bloggers and commenters who spread hate. Why did she do it? "People have been getting out of control," she says. "It's taking away the excitement and the cool factor of creativity" in online posts. Ciara says that she "always tries to turn negativity into positivity." "If you're taking your time to write about me, there has to be something special," she says. "I'm living my dream. I'm doing what I want to do every day, and actually, I'm getting paid while you're writing about me!"
Ciara says she's in a "really comfortable creative place" at this point in her life. Being able to work with her fiancé on her new album may also have something to do with it. "I like to say love and music are the strongest forces on earth," she says. "When you can be bonded by something that powerful, it's like the sky is the limit."
The singer has another way to prove that she doesn't sweat the small stuff. She's teamed up with the makers of Degree MotionSense deodorant to do more, by challenging them to push boundaries, and to celebrate their passions.
