Tyler Perry’s ‘For Colored Girls‘ premiered in New York last night (Oct. 26) at the Ziegfeld Theater and the star-studded cast came to support the launch of the powerful film based on the 1974 choreopoem “For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow Is Enuf’ by Ntozake Shange.
Keri Hilson and Ciara went on Ustream recently to address rumors that the two have beef. Ciara says she’s tired of being asked about it in interviews and says that it’s time to put an end to all the senseless chatter.
As usual… a day before it was originally set to premiere on VEVO, Ciara’s video for “Gimmie Dat” has already hit the net.
In the Melina-directed clip, CiCi pops the hood on her black Lambo, and bumps & grinds her way to superstardom in an abandoned parking lot.
Rocking a “FLY” ensemble that includes a pair of daisy dukes, the singer heads inside a warehouse where she dons an Atlanta Braves fitted cap and busts some serious dance moves before the sky opens up and gets her all wet.

Thursday (Oct. 7), Ciara visited East High School in Memphis, Tenn. to stress the importance of education to 900 high school students. CiCi is a part of the Get Schooled National Challenge along with Ludacris, Keri Hilson and more.
The multi-city tour engages students in an effort to help improve high school graduation rates and ultimately raise college completion rates.
“They can take away your house, they can take away your money, they can take away your clothes, they can take away all those fun materialistic things, but if you have knowledge, you can always get that back,” shared CiCi, who wore a pheasant-print T-shirt, sparkly pinstripe pants, and bejeweled heels. “Knowledge is the foundation to everything.”
Ciara surprised students with a brief impromptu performance of her ladies remix to Chris Brown’s “Deuces.” Watch video of CiCi’s speech & performance below: Continue Reading…
