Well, that was quick: according to a press release, pseudo-singer Ciara’s signature had barely dried on the contract before she politely backed out of her commitment to perform live during Atlanta’s Black Gay Pride weekend.

The news comes as a surprise to all who planned on traveling to Atlanta to see Ciara perform. CiCi was set to join a lesbun studded lineup, including Nicki Minaj and Amber Rose, whose appearances have been confirmed.

We can speculate all day why Ciara suddenly got cold feet. But we here at Sandrarose.com don’t engage in petty speculation.

According to a press release sent out by Traxx Atlanta and Sean Biggs Entertainment — Traxx Atlanta are “in talks” with R & B recording artist Ciara hoping that she will [change her mind and] “join the likes of LiL Kim, Nicki, Monica and Trina (just to name a few) that have graced [Traxx] in the years before her.”

Now, earlier this week, it was confirmed that Ciara was set to appear at Gay Pride. So what happened?

A Traxx Atlanta rep made this cryptic statement (was he referring to Ciara?):

“I really need to talk to any one that would have a problem with our line up. With prop 8 being shot down again we don’t need our black public figures discriminating against gays and leisbens [sic].”

This year Taxx is set to see over 45,000 people which will make it the largest single gay festive event the nation has ever seen. Atlanta Black Gay Pride takes place September 2 through September 7th.
