Ciara Performs ‘Body Party’ on ‘Jimmy Kimmel,’ Talks Stripping + Getting Turnt Up on ‘Chelsea Lately’
Ciara taped her ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’ appearance last month on the outdoor stage, bringing the heat with her sexy, slow and lush hit ‘Body Party,’ making the stage feel like her bedroom for a few sultry minutes. She wore leather, lace and bling, as well as dark sunglasses, furthering the mood.
For her perf of ‘I’m Out,’ she rocked baggy leather shorts and sneakers, to go along with her bouncy blonde hair and the more upbeat nature of the song. She was busting some serious moves, aerobics style. How she didn’t lose her breath totally was beyond us. It was entertaining, for sure.
When she hit ‘Chelsea Lately,’ the diva waxed about plenty of topics, such as going blonde (“I’ve learned blondes have a little more fun, I’m turning my fun game up like you”) and about her BF, rapper Future. She explained their matching tattoos –she has an “N,” which is the first initial of his real name, Nayvadius.
Since Ciara does a strip tease for him in the too-hot-for-words ‘Body Party’ video, the host was compelled to ask if she gives private dances.
“Body parties go down. What would you do for your love? You gotta turn up,” she said coyly.
Ciara also explained why she has a song on her new, self-titled album called ‘Super Turnt Up,’ featuring Ciara. Since it is her album to begin with, how can she feature? She shared, “There’s no alter ego here. On this album, my fans get to have a new experience with me. It’s about knowing me more and truthfully, it’s me with a different twist…I just sound a little different, so it’s featuring me.”
The difference is that she is rapping.
As for “turnt up,” she attempted to explain what it means. We won’t even try to break it down — let Ciara do that for you by watching the clip below.
‘Ciara’ is out on July 9.
