Just to get you up to speed since I didn't post about it when the drama began... After the cover of Ciara nekkid on Vibe Magazine came out, word was that she was planning sue Vibe for photoshopping her clothes off, which turned out to be just a rumor.

Vibe Editor-in-Chief, Danyel Spencer, defended the cover, saying that Ciara was nude according to staff on set [despite Ciara's claims that she wasn't] and that she came to Vibe wanting to be “grown up and free.” LISTEN TO THE FULL AUDIO HERE. Vibe isn't Time Magazine or anything, but I can't imagine that she would take the legal risk of photoshopping the clothes off a person. Ciara was airbrushed, but that's standard... Danyel says that she has the original untouched photos to prove it, but won't release them.

So now, MTV recently caught up with Ciara and she still singing the same tune that she wasn't naked. She says she had on underwear... In a video posted from on set of the photoshoot, she said he had fun with the "suggestive nudity" which I just saw another show this weekend, and means you are naked but you cover the private places with hands, ect. However, she feel as though the cover was misleading.
I think, at this point, I'd rather just be quiet about things such as that but I definitely want to make it clear that I was going in to do something artistic, and I was upset that when I saw the photos, everything was gone," the singer told MTV News last weekend, from the set of her forthcoming music video for "Go Girl," which features a cameo from T-Pain. "It's very, very upsetting and somewhat misleading."
It seems like she knew what she was getting into though, but you know how they say any publicity is good publicity!
