Singer/songwriter The-Dream has deleted both of his Twitter accounts after a recent interview he did that outraged Ciara fans.
During the interview, The-Dream did with Parlour Magazine, he talks about working with the songstress and seemingly implies that she was in a place in her career where it was either sink or swim.
“There’s an expectation of where Ciara should be in her career,” said Dream during the interview. “To others, she’s achieved but not to us, because we saw where her career was headed. But now she’s back on the horse.”
“When she first came out I, like Lil Jon and Jazze Pha, understood exactly who she was. It was that whole Atlanta vibe because if I’m not Atlanta, no one is. I knew if I had a chance to get with her creatively, there’s a specific type of swagger that she’s got. Tricky [Stewart] and I did her whole album, but it’s not all shallow songs like Ride. There’s play time but there’s substance too, it’s a great listen.”
Ciara’s fans though didn’t appreciate the insinuation that their beloved star needed any help with her career and apparently let Dream know it by bombarding him with tweets. He defended himself by explaining that those who read the interview didn’t read the context, but apparently that didn’t help and he ultimately decided to delete his accounts.
“It’s sad how we take things out of context…And if I said it’s Ciara’s last chance it’s because we all — me, [Tricky Stewart], and C beloved [had] — our backs against the wall…Look up the word context. And also become familiar with the phrase ‘taken out of context’ it helps…I believed in Ciara when every1 else walked away and talked sh*t I love her that’s my sister! Actions speak louder than words,” he wrote on Twitter.
