Ciara is leaving the negativity behind in 2013. The “Body Party” singer has penned an open letter on her website, in which she denounces blogs and social media for tearing down others.
In the letter, entitled “What Is Social Media Coming To?” she admits to visiting blogs, but has become increasingly disturbed by their slanderous stories.
“But nowadays it seems like there’s a competition with sites on ‘Who Can Tear Someone Down the Most,'” she writes. “The stories are going from cool and creative to pure drama. Even the comment sections are beginning to get out of control and people are using the platforms to exercise a false sense of power.”
Additionally, she has noticed the same behavior on Instagram, where positive posts spawn negative comments.
“I think to myself, ‘I could pick this person apart so bad but what for? Why act ugly like them?’ says CiCi. “It honestly takes the fun out of it when people seem so miserable.”
She questions why people spend their time ripping others apart when they could focus on something positive, but she believes that the negative bloggers will get what they deserve.
“It’s never worth it in the end when you sell your soul for a quick dollar, by creating bad stories about people,” says CiCi. “At some point, it will all reverse on you and you’ll end up regretting all the trash you wrote or said about people.”
Moving forward, she has decided to stop visiting blogs. “Now, Off Blogs. Peaceful Mind. Living In My Happiness. Creativity Only.”
