Ciara Covers Paper Magazine (Photo Gallery)

Posted by & filed under Photo Gallery, SFW, The Daily Dose (Entertainment News).

Ciara covers the September 2013 issue of Paper magazine. The singer talks to the magazine about her own style inspirations and her love for androgyny.

“I don’t wear a dress regularly,” Ciara said after her cover shoot, “but even if I do, you have to put some attitude into it. I like a leather skirt, which gives you some toughness, but a feminine touch too. I like the androgynous thing with a hard edge: I make things rock ‘n’ roll — but still pretty.”

Ciara released her self-titled fifth studio album earlier this summer, which found itself hitting No. 2 on the Billboard Top 200 Chart. While you might not find her latest tracks on mainstream radio, the album has received pretty great reviews as an R&B record. Ciara says her new music simply reflects her life in the present moment.

“The album is light and upbeat,” she said. “There’s a lot of love in it — a lot of heart and passion. It reflects the spirit and energy that I’m feeling right now. What people are hearing is my true self-expression and the energy I’m living.”
