Ciara Shares Thoughts On New Album


Ciara is ready to strike with her much anticipated album, 'Jackie' (named after her mother).  The singer shared with Fashion Daily her reasons for why she believe this album will be her best yet.  "It's my best body of work.  I'm in the most clear place in my life, and that pours into the music."  Ciara also informed Daily on which producers we'll find on the new album:

"I kept it small and tight in terms of producers; I wanted it to sound consistent.  I worked with Dr Luke, Polow da Don, Harmony Samuels and a few other producers."



What really got us over-the-top excited is Ciara's claims that her upcoming video for her latest single, 'I Bet' includes concepts "Style-wise and performance-wise" that she hasn't done yet and always wanted to.  Everyone knows that Ciara always delivers when it comes to videos,  if this next one has her trying out new ideas - we can only conclude that we're in for a hell of a treat!

The Boy Next Door (Movie Review)




The Boy Next Door starring Jennifer Lopez and Ryan Guzman is sure to be a people pleaser!  In this film Lopez plays the role of Claire Peterson, who is newly separated from her husband, raising a teenage son.  Things get moving shortly after the next door neighbor's grandson moves in and eventually charms the pants off of a vulnerable Claire (literally).  Once the lines are crossed, Claire's in a world of regret and she sees the action as inappropriate.  Things pretty much get messy from there on end due to the unhealthy obsession Guzman's character develops after failing to cope with his feelings of rejection.  This young man finds his way in the family circle by bonding with Claire's son and the trouble he causes is unimaginable.

From the intriguing taboo of it all (regarding the affair) to the intense conclusion -- this movie is entertaining.  There's also a little bonus here, Lopez's sinfully curvaceous figure in the steamy love scene is unbelievable to watch.  She has got to be one of the foxiest women in Hollywood!  Bottom line, we recommend checking this movie out.  It's enough action in it to keep anyone from being disappointed.
