Ciara spoke to MTV News back in April about her [article id="1706580"]romance with the rapper[/article].
"When you do step outside, you put yourself in a position to where people are going to be able to judge and they could criticize and they can give their opinion and that's something I used to always fear," she said of going public with the rapper.
She added, "That's where I am at this day and time in my life and I'm also with someone who makes me extremely comfortable to be that way, which is really important. The way that he makes me feel, why not? If you love somebody you should express it, and now I understand that. There's nothing sexy about hiding your love. There's nothing sexy about people not acknowledging each other."
