Ciara feels shy with clothes on in Vibe photo shoot

Ciara Suing Vibe Magazine? I Was Wearing a Bikini Bottom

Remember Ciara’s nekked Vibe cover? Ciara claims she was wearing a bikini bottom that ‘disappeared’ when the magazine hit stands. There is chatter that Ciara is considering suing Vibe magazine for allegedly airbrushing the pictures in a way that misrepresented the original photo shoot. On Friday, Danyel Smith, Vibe’s editor in chief, was a guest on New York’s Kiss FM to knock down the “hullabaloo.”

Danyel Smith

“It’s just dramatic. I’m actually really sad. Almost any photo you see on the cover of Vibe or any magazine is airbrushed to some degree. What I was thinking of doing, actually, was releasing the unretouched photos on Vibe’s web site, so people can see what the hullabaloo is all about.

Ciara was so happy when she pitched this idea to us, and the photos are actually striking and beautiful. ... It was pitched to me in a way that it was time for her to grow up and be beautiful and be free and be all the things she wanted to be.” - MTV

Danyel Smith went on to say she has yet to be called or visited by Ciara’s legal team.

Bikini bottom or not, it was just a dumb move for Ciara; half-naked isn’t what she needed to be in order to grow up and be beautiful.

Vibe has been known to have some shady photo practices.  At the same time, when you’re posing and getting free press you take certain risk.  Ciara, doll, kill the noise.

Its funny how people hate.I felt like ciara lost her mind or went to far but she grown.And that was her decision to.If you took a photo with a bathing suit on and thought it would be printed with the bathing suit on.It should be on the cover with a bathing suit as expected.You dont just change things cause you want to.

Sure Ciara is grown but grown people make dumb decisions too. Ciara took that picture without any clothing otherwise she would have been talking about suing immediately. The pic was tasteless and Ciara should be ashamed of it. It’s not hate when someone makes a stupid decision and are told about it. You people clearly abuse the word hate. That word is old get a new one.

nuni,
You a dumb bitch. I ain’t hatin’ on Ciara she made a dumb choice and someone needs to tell her about it. That ain’t my pic cause I aint dumb enough to do that “shit” to myself. If anything is sloppy it’s that pic and probably your dumb ass. Ciara made a bad choice and those that defend her are just as dumb as the choice she made.
