Ciara is our new era fly girl as she graces the cover of PAPER Magazine's latest issue. In her cover shot, along with inside photos, the R&B beauty showed over her sexy figure and style personality in various high-fashion outfits. In her sit down, the "Body Party" singer opened up about her style, boyfriend Future, being less private and much more. Check out some excerpts below and visit PAPER for the full story here.
On Wearing Dresses: "I don't wear a dress regularly, but even if I do, you have to put some attitude into it. I like a leather skirt, which gives you some toughness, but a feminine touch too. I like the androgynous thing with a hard edge: I make things rock 'n' roll — but still pretty."
On Her New Album: "The album is light and upbeat. There's a lot of love in it — a lot of heart and passion. It reflects the spirit and energy that I'm feeling right now. What people are hearing is my true self-expression and the energy I'm living."
On Being Less Guarded: "I thought it was better to be private. But self-reflection helped me to say, 'You need to live more. If you worry so much about things, your head is going to explode. Just live. Something has to give.' I was holding back so much that I wasn't letting myself explore and live."
On Boyfriend Future: "He's very understanding, and he's my best friend. It's important to have a feeling that you can talk about anything and know a person's going to be there and support you. When we're together, it's not about who we are. I feel very normal, very safe and loved."
