Ciara Wants You To Know.... / by


Ciara pretty much said "miss me with the bullshit." In a new open letter that she penned and posted onto her website OnlyCiara, the songstress makes it clear that she is not here for the blogs, negativity or cyber bulling across the social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. In her letter she states that she can no longer go to blogs to see the creativity because now they contain nothing but trash posts and they thrash artists to ignite fan wars.

She threw shade at bloggers who are completely negative, she mentioned how people end their lives due to bullying and how she could stoop just as low as the negative person and rip them to shreds with cruel words over the internet, but she chooses not to. She said that she would like for people to be more uplifting and positive. I mean, in a perfect world who wouldn't? See her letter below.


What Is Social Media Coming To?

Written by  

    I used to sometimes like visiting some of the blog sites to see what new things are happening in the world! Things like cool photos, current events, etc. But nowadays it seems like there's a competition with sites on "Who Can Tear Someone Down the Most." The stories are going from cool and creative to pure drama. Even the comment sections are beginning to get out of control and people are using the platforms to exercise a false sense of power.
    People sure do have a lot of courage when they are anonymous. It's like a "Who Can Say the Nastiest Comment Game." I click onto some of the comments from something as fun as an Instagram post that you're sharing with your fans, and a person finds a way to turn a positive post into a negative. I think to myself, "I could pick this person apart so bad but what for? Why act ugly like them?" It honestly takes the fun out of it when people seem so miserable.
    Or at least that's how I view someone wasting their energy to tear someone down, just plain miserable. They could be using that to do something much more productive. If only they could channel their energy towards positivity, it could make a difference in their own life as well as influence others. It's kind of scary for the kids coming up, because even if a parent doesn't allow their kids to have blog site access at home, they may still have access at school or other places. It's now almost impossible to protect your kids from the vile things people say on blog sites today, and it's even worse when kids hear hurtful things about themselves, their parents or other family members. In some cases kids have even resorted to suicide due to "cyber-bullying."
    My questions to people creating slander about people are: 
    What stops you from thinking twice about trying to defame someone? What are you trying to gain?
    Words are powerful. You could say the wrong thing about someone, famous or not, on the wrong day and that could cost them their life because they're at a weak point. Believe it it or not, you could also be encouraging them to give up on their life or whatever the situation is, when they shouldn't. Or what about a story that causes unnecessary drama stemming from completely false information? It's just flat out wrong and sad. I say to myself, I thank God for making me strong, because I've always been able to use the negativity as motivation, and it makes me stronger.
    But I don't just think about myself in this, I think about others that I see getting thrashed and think it's just so wrong. It's very sad that people just want to tear people down so bad just to see them unhappy. It's unbelievable how far people are willing to go to get people to come to their site. 
    I say this to say....
    Dear Blogger, It's never worth it in the end when you sell your soul for a quick dollar, by creating bad stories about people. At some point, it will all reverse on you and you'll end up regretting all the trash you wrote or said about people.
    The universal friend "Karma" has demonstrated this over and over again. I strongly encourage you to project more positivity into
    the universe. If Social Media is a world that's growing more massive by the day, why not use it to shed light?? Otherwise, you are merely contaminating our universe.
    What about your family and kids?? Do you think about them?? You're definitely creating a harmful and volatile environment where they must learn to live. It's almost like you are cursing future generations with your bad energy.
    Not to mention...Your "Personal Karma"??... Forget about it!
    You better start doing some serious praying and rebuking, cause only The Lord knows!...:)
    I sure do miss the good ol days when the focus was about the pure creativity of being an artist. Back then there was still some mystery. Social Media Is Beginning To Take Away The Specialness of What That Was, and Is.
    Now, Off Blogs. Peaceful Mind. Living In My Happiness. Creativity Only. 
    
Love, C
    Ciara does have some valid points here. The bullying, how it's wrong. I agree, I hate bullying. When I think of bullying, school comes into mind, or the neighborhood big fat kid that picks on the little one jogs my memory. That's what I think of when I hear "bully". It's very sad that people do hurt themselves or take their lives when it comes to bullying, but they've endured different types of bullying whether physical, mental or emotional.

    When the term "CYBER" is brought into play, nothing comes to my mind. I don't understand how people fall victim to cyber bullying...hell, I'm not sure if I even believe in it! Well, let me recant that. I do believe in Cyber Bullying, but in Ciara's case, she's NOT being cyber bullied , she's just sensitive to comments and here's why.

    Just because someone posts negative a comment, which is simply an opinion about something, or about how they feel does not mean they are cyber bullying. If it's comments about how good it is or how flawless it is, then there's nothing wrong. Everything is all rainbows and glitter.

    The minute something negative pops up, people want to get all into their feelings. As far as the comments portion or even entire blogs for that matter, the best advice I can give to her is NOT to read them. If she reads them, then her feelings would be hurt. The letter above shows that she's reading them and her feelings are getting hurt. The negativity will always be there, and if her skin isn't tough enough to endure the harshness of the fans now a days, then she need not to read.

    C-Squad isn't as rowdy as the BeyHive or The Navy. Because if something negative is posted or said about anyone of those two, the naysayer is ate alive. Just ask Miley Cyrus, Chilli, Keyshia Cole, Roseanne, or Teyana Taylor. They all tried it, but the fans, as harsh as they are, did enough damage to where the neither of them had to even address it. Not that they would have, but you get my point.

    Granted people can be harsh and criticize to the death, but that's apart of the celebrity package. That's apart of the deal you signed up for sweetie pooh pooh nah nah. I really hate when people compare things to what they used to be or to the past. For instance, like when people say "music isn't what it used to be, 90's had the best music."

    Blogs are not what they used to be. Nothing is and nothing will ever be! It's just like how time goes on, people will move on. The people that blogged in the 90's or the early 2000's are no longer blogging now. The same thing goes for music. People who made music in the 90's are either struggling to survive in the music business or have quit it all together. We are dealing with a new generation of people, a new generation of entertainers, and a new generation of bloggers.

    This new generation likes to be first at everything, even if it means creating a false story just to get hits and start wars in comments (That Grape Juice). But that's the world now a days. This letter isn't going to stop anything. It's not going to stop people from commenting and starting wars and leaving harsh criticize. Nothing ever will.

    So apart of me feels that this entire letter was kind of pointless because it's not going to change anything. Maybe she just wanted people to see how she's feeling about the entire situation. I do understand the whole enough is enough thing, but in the entertainment business, that what comes with the total package and you have to be able to take it all.

    Continue to ignore the comments, ignore the stories...or if you can beat them, join them. That's what the hell Rihanna does because she does not give two fucks! She mocks her "fans", she uploads pictures comparing them to animals, she even told one of them not to come to her concert. she's vicious and ruthless and the world still loves her. Maybe Ciara should follow in those IDGAF steps. What do you think? Comment below.
