She’s a headliner at the Essence Music Festival in June so it does make sense that she would get one. These are gorgeous covers, and I like Ciara with blonde in her hair. Her relationship with new fiance Russell Wilson has attracted a lot of media attention, so it would have been a great sales pitch to have him on the cover too. In the issue, she talks about motherhood and her engagement.
