Ciara doesn't mind that her boyfriend Russell Wilson went public with their decision not to have sex for religious reason.
"You know, when Russell talked about it, he was being honest. For what it's worth I think there are so many people like us," the singer told me at the MTV Video Music Awards. "We get to share real things. We're real people.
"I run into different people and they'll talk to me about their journey and their relationships, so I think that's been really cool and it's a healthy thing," she continued. "It's a healthy conversation we all get to have as adults. I'm not sweating it at all."
Wilson revealed in early July during in an interview with Pastor Miles McPherson of The Rock Church, near San Diego, that he and Ciara decided to abstain.
"[Ciara] was on tour, and I was looking at her in the mirror, and God spoke to me," Wilson recalled. "He said, 'I need you to lead her.' I told her, 'What would you do if we took all that 'extra stuff' off the table, and just did it Jesus' way?'"
While Wilson has yet to put a ring on it, I couldn't help but ask if they're thinking about marriage. "He's the best guy in the world for me," Ciara gushed. "He's my best friend and I just put positive things in the universe. We want to continue having the best relationship and friendship we could have."
