Last night I got a call from a trusted and very credible insider who gave me the scoop on the story behind Ciara's remix to Beyonce's "Diva".
Although I can't give you the particulars of what my source said, I can tell you that Ciara recorded the "Diva" remix on Friday night and released it online on Saturday ahead of (and to build anticipation for) her new single due out on Jan. 5.
My source said Ciara's remix was in response to a subliminal diss by Beyonce in Bey's song "Diva".
My source told me that Ciara actually started the beef months ago by continuously talking trash behind Beyonce's back to others within that tight inner circle that you and I aren't privy to.
Word got back to Bey who handled it in her own non-aggressive way by simply ignoring Ciara.
If you read my Ciara Diaries, then you recall I told you that, according to insiders, Ciara had gone Hollywood on them and was "out of control." CiCi even went as far as to say she was a much bigger star than Beyonce -- and even Rihanna.
On September 30, Ciara released a track titled "Go Girl" that was supposed to be the first single off her now shelved album Fantasy Ride.
On the track Ciara sings,
- Call me 'Cici', let's go, and I know that you see me,
Can't be just like me, (and you) can't make that happen,
'Cause I am the original and YOU ain't got that swagga
Welp, Bey responded with a diss of her own, putting CiCi firmly back in her lane:
- How you gon' be talkin shit?
You act like I just got up in it,
Been the number one diva in this game for a minute
On her remix to "Diva", Ciara brashly responds:
- Lot of people talking ish, I don't really give an ish,
I ain't going nowhere,
This diva here for a minute
What do you think? Are words between two non-talented, non-singing women even worthy of being called beef at all?
