Ciara just bought a McDonald's franchise. Just kidding. But Ciara spent half the day working the drive through window and the front counter at the Rock 'n' Roll McDonald's in downtown Chicago. Don't you love it when superstars humble themselves for their fans?

    She's a sweetheart although I doubt very much she ever eats McDonalds.

  • Mia

    That was cool of her. She seems like such a sweetheart.

    I think it's a slap in the face when celebs do unecessary stuff like this. She's really just doing this for FUN when the other people behind the register are wearing hairnets, sweating, and trying to make rent.

    i was wondering where they had her working at...that location is really popular, expecially w/ tourists...an announcement was made that she would be appearing, but the location was kept a secret (w/ good reason)

    humble?! i guess, but i'm sure she got paid or they'll be sponsoring her next tour or something!!!

  • Bubbles


    So celebrities must only move amongst other celebrities and not normal working people that probably buy their Cd's and buy tickets to their shows ?

    @ Bubbles

    No, they shouldn't. But WHY is she doing this? What's the benefit, really? I mean, she can sign autographs at McDonald's or whatever, but why hand out food? She doesn't even want to touch the glass.

  • Marlo

    she's helping them lauch a new breakfast. she also helps with the ronald mcdonald charity program. she has a relationship with mcdonalds and commitment to their charities.

  • Bsoul

    Many a folk probably went from one McDonalds to another to see her. I'm not mad at her. You couldn't pay some people (including non-celebs) to do this.

  • Bubbles

    @smokie she is touching the window...although I don't understand what that has to do with anything.

    I don't understand what the problem is with celebrities mingling with their fans.


  • bloggergirlz

    i forgot she helped promote the breakfast burrito. they were giving them away thur and fri w/ the purchase of a drink...i thnk it's great she was involved by working the drive-thru...i'm sure morale increased...if only for one day!!!

  • ms.peaches

    Wow how decent of her!! I can remember Mcdonalds being my first job & I hated it so I guess I can see where Smokie is coming from on that part of it but in situations like that are they really there buying food cause once you know your favorite celeb is at Mcdonalds the hell with the food I just want to see the celeb!!! I'm sure it was a treat non the less!!

    I'm proud of Ciara. As someone else pointed out, few of us would do what Ciara is doing. She took time out of her busy schedule and humbled herself for a great cause. CiCi deserves all the blessings that come her way.

    Maybe it's just me, but I can't imagine Alicia Keys coming into my office to write some of my proposals and leaving me with increased my morale. If anything, I'm left thinking, "I'm still here while she's on her way to make some REAL money..." Now, if GOD came to help out I might be in awe/appreciative.

    But, I guess this does increase her likability in the eyes of the general population since no one seems to have a problem with her playing fry cook for a day. Personally, I just want to buy CDs and go to concerts. I think politicians should touch the "regular folks". Celebs have no reason to. They are only there to provide music and entertain.

  • Bsoul

    Smokie, if my mayor was serving at a McDonalds, I'd make it my business to go there order up a ton of food and keep driving...just to see him looked befuddled. I'm still reeling from some of his meth-like decisions.

    I know, that is not right. :^(

  • Bubbles

    @smokie celebs don't have to touch the regular folks but some choose to. I know Alicia does a lot of charity work with AIDS organisations and it makes her a better artist to me than someone who only spends their millions partying and doing drugs.

    Just my opinion

    I think this is a good look..to me it shows Ciara in a regular light and they got a ton of revenue that day..she just garned more fans by doing this

  • http://www.myspace.com/millyly milly

    Aww thats sweet..I'm sure theres a promotional deal in there somewhere, but its still nice that she suprised fans at the drive tru

  • Marlo

    to find something negative about this shows that you can't do anything to avoid haters

  • Ladyy

    @ marlo u really can't which is sad. This says alot about ciara's character. Alot of celebs wouldn't do this...

  • hellava10

    The sad thing is the breakfast burrito thing was HORRIBLE. Mine was passed through the window from Susan (she's about 60ish -not a celeb, but she's there every morning). If I had paid for it, I would have money back in my pocket.

  • Bsoul

    Awww, here Susan is working her butt off every morning and she got no props! You should have put that thing on top of your engine and driven to work. By the time you get to your destination, that thing would have been smokin'!


  • claire

    im with you marlo i guess you cant win for losing huh....lol

  • Brit

    It's REALLY sad that an artist can't do something to reach out to people without being Criticized. It just makes no sense and it confuses me how anyone can find something wrong with what Ciara is doing.SMH

    Anyway she looks cute and I love her classic McDonald's t-shirt.I'm happy that she's doing this especially because there are not many artists that I could see or have seen do something like this.

    Damn...I hope Nelly take heed and bring his ass to Houston and pass out food at our Drive-Thru. Ba-da-da-ta-ta...I'm loving it!!!

  • Bsoul

    2thick4u, I could actually see Nelly doing something like this. He seems sweet and genuine.

    Estelle's album, "Shine" is going to be really good. I saw her in concert recently and rarely do I like songs upon first listen.
