      Ciara “Like A Boy” Ciara: The Evolution LaFace Records Director: Diane Martel

      Ciara reunites with director Diane Martel for her third single and music video from “Ciara: The Evolution”, titled “Like A Boy” which is about the double standards of men and women in society (men being able to do certain things whereas when women do those very same things, they get bad-mouthed). The song


      contains an interesting mixture of synthesized orchestral strings and a hard-hitting Hip Hop instrumental beat.

      The music video explores the topic of double standards of men and women with our protagonist Ciara wishing to be like a boy. It’s shot completely in stylized black and white and shows Ciara dressed up as a tattooed thug boy and sitting in a chair. Ciara confronts her boyfriend ...


      • a lot in this video, played by football player Reggie Bush. Ciara is shown dancing with her male alter ego at first during the first verse and chorus in method that was used for actors playing two roles in the same scene (i.e. Eddie Murphy in “The Nutty Professor” and Michael Keaton in “Multiplicity”).

        Throughout the remainder of the video, Ciara and her female dancers

        are all dressed in masculine-type clothing and doing “manly choreography”. I’m beginning to notice that most of, if not all, Ciara’s songs are about female empowerment. I’m beginning to wonder if Ciara is going to become a lesbian soon. Hey, it’s bound to happen if you’re hanging around people like Missy Elliott a lot. I just hope whomever Ciara chooses as a female partner doesn’t happen to look ‘like a boy’.
