Ciara Channels Janet Jackson For "Thinkin Bout You" Billboard Performance
Ciara was one of the many attendees and performers to hit the stage at the 2019 Billboard Music Awards. The 33-year-old singer performed her track "Thinkin Bout You" for the audience and channeled none other than Janet Jackson when it came to her pinstriped pantsuit.
Fans flocked to social media to draw the comparison, that came from Janet's 1989 music video for "Alright." Ciara pulled off a modernized version, clearly showing love to the woman who has always inspired her.
"Y’know, I just have so much respect for her. She truly is, to me, the best to ever do it when it comes to entertainment," Ciara previously stated of Janet.
Ciara's electrifying performance follows up on her recent announcement that she and husband Russell Wilson are starting their own production company.
"While we work in different fields in our day-to-day, we are excited to come together to collaborate and create stories that we hope will touch people’s lives,” Wilson and Ciara explained in a joint statement. "We are both storytellers at heart and we want to be able to share stories that uplift people and inspire others to create positive change. That’s ultimately what we want this company to represent."
If their company will helm such projects that have even just an ounce of what Ciara was serving last night, we're here for it. Watch her full performance here.
