Ciara's basic status and her simple performances appeal to the inner-school high school cheerleader that lives within all of us. She is loved by both of her stans for her down-to-earth persona and street-wise choreography. She does not over complicate her live shows with unnecessary elements like on-key singing, live musicians, or big budgets.

Cedric shortened his stage name to "Ciara" and quickly began recording an album entitled "Goodies" which posted 2 hit singles and went multi-platinum.

The BET controversy was just the beginning of several unsuccessful and hilarious attempts at having a successful crossover career with hit albums, sold-out tours, and successful movies. There's nothing wrong with wanting more for yourself and your career but the industry is like a video game. You can’t get to one level until you beat another. And when you are barely good at one genre of music and one facet of entertainment it's extremely difficult to crossover to another. Although Ciara's 2nd album "Evolution" sold over 2 million worldwide her status in the realm of popular music was beginning to waver.

Because stan groups are usually a direct reflection of artist they stan for it should be of no surprise that Ciara stans rank low in stan wars. Ciara stan defenses range from mildly valid ("Ciara is a better dancer") to downright desperate ("At least she isn't in the [[Illuminati]]"). As with [[Christina Aguilera]] stans you would think that stanning for someone who has had so many epic failures would make them more humble and sympathetic and you think they would try to ingratiate themselves with stans of more popular artists, but sadly that is not the case. Some Ciara stans continue to fight (and lose) at stan wars.

Ciara's basic status and her simple performances appeal to the inner-school high school cheerleader that lives within all of us. She is loved by both of her stans for her down-to-earth persona and street-wise choreography.
