This morning, singer Ciara stopped by CBS This Morning exclusively to talk to Gayle King from her new relationship with NFL player Russell Wilson, her new album Jackie, her ex-boyfriend rapper Future, and much more.
Here are some of the excerpts from the interview:
Her take on double standards:
“It’s been very interesting what a lot of guys have to say. I feel like, in a sense, it’s a double standard. At one point in time when [Future and I] were together, I took care of his kids as well at a very young time on our relationship. He actually has four and one is adopted. I was involved very early in a stage of us getting to know each other. It’s like, what’s the difference here? For the men that were outspoken, wouldn’t you want someone to love on the child? It’s a child we’re talking about. That’s the thing people have to think about. We’re the adults in the situation. Really, this is my child here.”
Her relationship with Russell Wilson and being celibate:
It was one of those things, it was like an organic conversation he was having. I don’t think he expected to talk about it either. I guess he was just speaking to the reality of what really is going on. It was at church. And the cool thing is to be able to share out journey with people like us. It’s a geat challenge, I can definitely say that. But it’s awesome because we really get to learn and challenge ourselves.
We get to know each other and build a foundation. We are Christians, we love God and believe in God. That part (sex) is the cherry on top. Sometimes that can cloud your emotions and you might not see a person for who they truly are.”
