Ciara Talks Her New Album 'Jackie', Motherhood + The Important Message Of "I Bet"

"Being a mom is the best thing that could have happened to my life," she says.

In case you haven't heard, R&B icon (and Love & Hip Hop superfan) Ciara's sixth studio album, Jackie, dropped today. The "I Bet" singer will soon head out on her first tour in almost six years, but before she does, Ciara stopped by VH1 to talk about motherhood and Jackie, whose name was inspired by Ciara's mother. She also weighs in on the criticism from notoriously outspoken music legend, Jermaine Dupri.

Hear what CiCi had to say about both of these in the clip, and grab a copy of Jackie on iTunes.
