*Ciara is single and is ready to mingle. She told hollyscoop.com that she needs a special man.

“I want someone who is confident, someone that’s fun, someone that can support me and motivate me, and they gotta be sexy too,” she said. “I am finishing up my new album Basic Instinct. I executive produced it with Tricky and The Dream, and my fans are really going to be in for a treat.”

She recently completed shooting for music videos “Speechless” and “Gimmie Dat,” she calls both her greatest.

“I’m gonna say that with ‘Gimmie Dat’; the energy is level 10 – turnt up to the max. We really just rocked and just really went hard. I’m very proud of it. I don’t want to put too much on until I finish the editing process, but I really feel like it’s going to be my best one to date.”

Ciara collaborative performance with N.E.R.D. at the recent MTV Video Music Awards may be the start of a new relationship.

“We’re talking about doing a couple of things. We’ve been in the studio a little bit too, just, like, talking about things and stuff,” Ciara said. “In the future, it’s very possible that you’ll be hearing something more from possibly me and N.E.R.D and also maybe even just me and Pharrell, musically.”

She also added, “I have to say, I had a lot fun performing with Pharrell. He’s such a sweetheart, their whole crew, Chad [Hugo], Shay, all of them are such sweet guys.”
