When Ciara showed up to perform the National Anthem at the College Football Playoff Championship on Monday night, it wasn’t her vocal abilities that got people talking.
Before we take a good, hard look at Ciara’s gown, consider yourself warned: you’re about to see some – GASP! – cleavage.
Former ESPN reporter Bonnie Bernstein was among the first Twittics to opine that Ciara’s dress was too revealing for a national audience.
Ciara was overdressed for the occasion.
As many people noted when calling Bernstein and Whitlock out for their “Prudish” comments, Ciara’s dress was no more revealing than the outfits that college cheerleaders wear on the sidelines every game day.
It’s frustrating that Ciara has again found herself the victim of a sexist double standard – as well as an absurd standard of decency – that’s forced upon female artists today.
Ciara said she was “Grateful” for the opportunity to sing “The Star Spangled Banner,” while Wilson gushed over his boo with a sweet tweet of his own.
