    R&B singer Ciara has publicly addressed rumors claiming that she was dropped from Jive Records this week. Ciara claims that it is actually she who is seeking a way out of her contractual obligations with the label that is also home to Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake.

    In a Facebook posting, Ciara wrote the following message, unedited by us, expressing frustration with her current label situation: "This week the net has been a buzz of the rumor that I have been dropped from my label. At this point that rumor is false...It is true that I have asked and I pray that my label will release me. I have had some great times and success with my label, but sometimes like all great things, its at that point where I feel we don't share the same views on who I am as a artist. The past two albums have been very frustrating for me. At times there were songs I chose to lead a project and I was ignored! This project, I even tried to get 'Gimmie Dat' started. I spent tens of thousands of my own money only to hear the radio PDs tell me my label didn't want the song played. I even spent more than one hundred thousand dollars out of my pocket on the video to bring my vision to it and still no label support."

    What do you think of Ciara's label predicament?
