“It’s incredible to have the experience from both perspectives,” she says of previously being honored and now hosting. “Receiving the award is a very incredible feeling. Now, being here to celebrate the women is exciting. There are so many amazing women in the house tonight. It’s really us coming together — we’re all sisters. It’s exciting to celebrate us tonight.
Ciara also hinted at some possible new music on the horizon saying that it started when she first got pregnant. “That energy just poured into the music,” the singer explains. “When it’s ready, my fans will have it hot and fresh.”
