«Basically it’s me just creating my own ‘Love Sex Magic’ show, and I was inspired by [Las Vegas] shows in particular, especially the Crazy Horse show, and I just wanted to create my own interpretation of that,» Ciara told the BoomBox while discussing her new, hot video for her latest single, ‘Love Sex Magic,’ featuring Justin Timberlake, off her upcoming album ‘Fantasy Ride.’
The diva puts on a very special show for Timberlake, who acts as a voyeur in the burlesque-like video, but behind the scenes and during the recording session the artists kept it PG.
«He’s so down to earth, such a fun person, such a humble person and we just cracked up and had a good time. I really really enjoyed myself … and we also ate good food,» Ciara reflected, before revealing that she and Timberlake abandoned their respective regimens and chowed down during the recording session. Timberlake even introduced her to what most people consider a pretty basic fare.
«He introduced me to this meal, it’s like spaghetti and meatballs, it was really good. I also was munching down on my Cuban food. And then I made these chocolate chip cookies in the studio. I’m kind of like «We’re not supposed to be eating this. It was a lot of fun.»
The labelmates got playful in the studio – and in the hot video.
«He was like a comedian in the sessions,» Ciara, 23, tells me. «He was cracking jokes. We’d make our cool little languages or ways of talking. We’d talk back with each other. Like, my girl, her name was Sophia, and I’d talk like I’m Sophia. She talks like [European accent] ‘You don’t know me like this. This is what I do.’ Funny stuff like that. We would have fun.»
Justin, 28, tried to catch Ciara cursing – which was difficult, considering she refuses to say bad words.
«I don’t really curse,» she says. «I don’t say cursing words on the album. If something makes me really mad, it will come out, like a word or two, but just when I’m moving around, day-to-day, I don’t use those words. He’d try to catch me. When I would mess up on a song, I’d be like ‘sh—-,’ which is a bad word in Germany. I’d say ‘shiznit, shiznit.’ That’s what I say. He’d try to edit the word to make it a word.»
She continues, «He’d try to catch me in the studio saying ‘shiznit’ and I didn’t know he was recording me. After, he got me to say it on the computer – but I wasn’t really saying it. Little funny moments. We definitely had a lot of fun. He tried to get me to curse. He tried to catch me.»
Justin’s girlfriend Jessica, 27, dropped by to help Ciara choose tracks for her new album Fantasy Ride, which is due this spring. Ms. Biel’s favorite? I’m a G.
«We were jammin’ to that,» she says. «It’s a record for my girls.»
