This Again? Ciara Addresses Jermaine Dupri Claims That "I Bet" Rips Off Usher's "U Got It Bad"
Finally, Ciara is on a promo run for 'Jackie.'
Recently, Ciara visited The Breakfast Club, where she discussed the recent accusations from Jermaine Dupri, regarding her single, "I Bet." Many of you know, Jermaine Dupri described the track, as a rip-off of "U Got It Bad" by Usher. Earlier, I said that I just felt as if Jermaine Dupri was looking for attention, especially if he wasn't going to bring it to further matters, such as suing. I wasn't aware beforehand, that he and Ciara were actually friends, or had previously worked together, so in that case, he was just talking. Now, that I'm aware that they do have a personal relationship, why not talk face to face towards the situation, instead of addressing it to the public? I may have said some things earlier toward this, that I disagree with now, such as the sound. I said, that "I Bet" reminds me of an early 2000's song, and I guess in that case, "U Got It Bad" was the song. The songs do sound quite similar, after a little listening. Wow..
Well, Ciara spoke toward the accusations saying that Jermaine Dupri has always been much of an expressive person, and that if she saw him right now, she would hug it out. She says, now as a mother, she tends not to care as much about particular topics, as she would've before. A baby can surely change someone's perspective around, and though my mom does joke around, I've heard various artist say, that their kids give them a reason to live, and that goes for people in general as well, such as my mother. It's beautiful, what babies can do, and either way, I didn't feel it was even much for Ciara to weigh-in on. I mean, what could Ciara say other then, she disagrees. I mean, the songs lyrically speak toward the same subject, which is breakups, and the production does sound quite similar.
I'm glad she gave such a classy response toward that. I mean, if you think of it, a different response could've quickly brought attention towards Ciara, and this upcoming album, and while I personally would've said something much different, I'm not going through the same situation as Ciara. She is in a happier state, and experiences joy from her baby. She sees things from a different viewpoint, and she wants to make a good example for her baby. I mean, personally this interview alone left me in shock, as I was never aware of how bright and humble Ciara was. I mean, not to say I had any intentions directly toward what I would expect from Ciara, but she is actually a super sweet girl. She almost reminds me of Keke Palmer. The "Happy-Go-Lucky" personality... I think this interview, for many could really make you like Ciara personally. I've never understood why others gave her grief in the first place, but this interview says a lot.
Anyway, I wish Ciara the best, and take a look at her "Breakfast Club" interview below:
