I had no intentions of posting Ciara’s latest last-ditch effort to remain relevant in an industry that has long forgotten her.

But I decided to post her dry “Speechless” music video after reading Toya’s review. My favorite line in her review is, “Watching this video was the equivalent to watching paint dry.” I couldn’t have said it better!

Watching this video was the equivalent to watching paint dry. It was boring. No dancing. No concept. No nothing. Many of us are not use to seeing Ciara solely relying on her “vocals” (or lack of) to carry a whole music video. Even with her slower cuts, she always manages to incorporate some form of choreography (see ‘Promise’).

We also posted three photos from this very video shoot over the weekend. The photographer blatantly DENIED that they were from the clip. It turns out that they were. All three of them! Anyway, I’m over this already. Bring on ‘Gimmie Dat’! Read more

    Its clear that Ciara is being black balled in the industry!!!! Ciara is making the same kind of music the other artist are making, and she can dance but the industry is speaking ill against her.

    @OutsidetheBox Did you see Oprah’s feet? She had a big bunion on her right foot.

  • pinksghetti

    I liked the video. I’ve seen on other blogs people say they are tired of Ciara always dancing sexually well here she is doing something different. Also I’m glad to her an R&B song by a woman that is a love song instead of a “my man cheated” song. BTW, The steel chair reminds me of Janet Jackson’s “Pleasure Principle” video.

  • pinksghetti

    oops meant “hear” not “her”.

    She need to reinvent herself.

    It appears Ciara is trying to channel Janet Jackson with the chair scene and short top with jeans scene. The song is decent.

    I listened to the song….HATED IT! Autotune much? And what’s up with the monotone nasally sounding notes? Maybe if Ciara didn’t sound as if she’s imitating the “Dream”, I would like it. Quite frankly dude and his music annoys me. Allllllll his songs sound the same. On a positive note, the lyrics are nice! 😆 Oh, and this video sucks…..

  • Go-Go Girlie

    Hated it. Song is dumb

  • SouthernPrincess

    I actually like the song and the video *Kanye shrug*

  • Redeemed777

    @dcwife1622

    The word “suicide” is not found in the Bible. It comes from the Latin word “sui” meaning “of oneself,” and -cida, meaning “to kill”.

    Suicide = To Kill Oneself.

    What does the Bible say about Killing….

    ” Thou shalt not Kill “

    @Danielle84……I actually like the song too.

    I guess everyone has a different ear for music. Plus if you playing it on a lil computer speaker….not going to do much justice. You gotta knock this. To all the H.A.T.E.R.S = Having Anger Towards Everyone Reaching Success. Losen up.

  • Daisy

    I love this song! Get em CiCi :dance:

    She isnt the only artist who P Pops but at least CiCi can do more than that

    She doesnt look like Kim but thats not a bad thing cause Kim is pretty

  • Iblondon

    I like the song, the video is a bit bland. Ummm, Super C will never be Janet. Janet has natural sex appeal, naturally pretty, and naturally can dressed fly, where as Super C always seem like she is “trying” to be those things. Janet gave us nice dance records and slow jams. Super C fails at her slow jams (though a lot of people liked Promise, I didn’t, I don’t use her slow songs). I’m really surprised that people are shocked that she’s flopping, errbody thought she was a one hit wonder anyway lol.

  • militaryspouse1

    Im in the minority, I like it

  • TruGemini

    I didn’t even watch the vid…just looking at the screen shot of her lying there looking like a corpse was indication enough for me :nono:

  • http://www.facebook.com/home.php?#/profile.php?ref=profile&id=1335451522 therapist1911

    I liled the song,video, and lyrics. She reminds me of a younger Janet. So far im liking the songs from this album.

    Imo must people on this board dont give her a chance bc sandra doesnt like her….and they follow. I may be wrong but it seems whoever Aunty doesnt like…..well group think

  • Lesb-honest

    :yawn: @ all of these tracks dat sound da same.

    Nah, cuz you know Sandra dogs the hell outta Beyonce, Usher and Chris Brown (just to name a few) and their ride-or-die’s come out the woodwork to defend them. Ciara really is a wack ass artist…not sure about her and Sandra’s personal beef

  • Cinderella

    Ciara needs to give it up. Her limited vocals are finally catching up to her. She should try to replace Lil Mama as a judge on America’s Best Dance Crew.

  • velvetw23

    I like the song and appreciate her just singing minus all the sexual undertones. She’s probably trying to play it safe since they banned her last video.
