Was Ciara being Petty? Refuses to Mention Future’s Name as a Nominee for #BBMA 2016



Ciara and Ludacris at Billboard Music Awards announcement_April 2016Ciara and Ludacris announced the nominees for the Billboard Music Awards #BBMA today.

When reading for the best rap category, Ciara announced all the other names except for her baby’s father – Future. This seemed weird, as when it was Ludacris‘ turn to announce all the nominees for the top R&B category, he mentioned them all.

    Maybe she had legal reasons. Didn’t they have a court case sometime back?

    women and pettiness.
    This is so unprofessional.

    she should have shown maturity and professionalism and just mention his name, if possible go on instagram and congratulate him. this just shows she is still bitter and she hasnt moved on. even tho she’s engaged to another man, she is still holding grudges with the father of her kid. tufia

    I keep losing love and respect for ciara every day. no wonder her last 3 albums were huge flops.

    I wouldnt either, and why was she chosen by the organisers to present the award for that paticular category. But wait , her son’s name too is Future * so what does she call him at home everyday. So Ciara son is only about to be two this year May. So she must have met Russell when her son was only a year old , wow this must be true love ….,

    BN, she is not being petty. I do blame the organizers, why would they put her in that category knowing fully well she is estranged from him. Apparently they had a motive. I like what she did.

    Just feels awkward! Everything has style, she should have used style to call the name. She wouldnt be held in contempt for calling his name, especially in a situation like this. It’s if she associates the name with insults!

    Umm, I think that for her to be announcing the rap category, she should have had an idea that Future’s name might or might not be there. She should have called out his name for God’s sake, she’s way over him or is she not?!
