The reason why Ciara‘s song “Level Up” is such a hit is probably because she’s the humanized definition of the term. After a succession of failed relationships with the Voltron of Fuck Boys 50 Cent, Bow Wow and plus-sized hating mush mouth Future (whom she made a baby with) Ciara hit the jackpot when she scored a ring from NFL Quarterback Russell Wilson. During their courtship though, Ciara and Russell decided to keep their goodies to themselves until marriage. They’re now happily married and happily fucking. However, she admits that she spent a lot of time on her knees performing a different kind of act to make sure their love was successful, and that act is called prayer.
In the April issue of InStyle, Ciara talking about their decision of being chaste before ripping each other’s clothes off during their honeymoon, and admitted during her engagement she needed Jesus around to spray them both with a water bottle like cats in heat.
Citing religious reasons, the Wilsons famously abstained from premarital sex during their whirlwind courtship, which was definitely a challenge, she admits. “That took a lot of prayer,” the singer says only half-jokingly. “It was hard. I can’t lie.”
It’s always tickled me how she placed Russell on the waiting list yet gladly bussed it wide open for Future who looks like the type of dude who’ll run up your credit and drink all the juice in your refrigerator the same day you buy it. Ciara understood the error of her ways and knew that in order to get better results she had to make a few changes. And one of those changes was kicking Future’s deadbeat ass to the curb.
“If you want to get somewhere in life, you’ve got to have a compass. You’ve got to know where you really want to get to,” the singer said when alluding to the end of her relationship with Future. “And my heart, soul, spirit, and mind just desired to be loved. To be truly loved the right way… I knew I didn’t want to cry tears of hurt anymore. I didn’t want to keep going around in circles.”
Yeah, I know she spewed out that Tyler Perry-written line, “I knew a good man was on his way because I prayed for it!“, but I truly believe every time she does an interview like this it’s really her chance to throw out a few of verbal middle fingers to all of her exes like, “Suck it you deadbeats!”
