How is pop star Ciara celebrating her 22nd birthday? With seven separate bashes in five separate cities, of course! OK! was on hand at the starlet’s kick-off party last week at Nikki Midtown to dish about what she might wish for when she blows her birthday candles out.

“My wish is for it to be an extremely prosperous year!” she reveals to OK!, “for it to be more fun than last year, that all my plans that I have for the next five years start to pop into place and I find my groove. Oh and to sell millions of records all around the world.”

A birthday party for Ciara wouldn’t be complete without her best friend and right-hand woman Missy Elliott. Also in attendance was LA Reid.

After her steamy video duet for “Can’t Leave ‘Em Alone” with 50 Cent left tongues wagging about a possible romance between the two, Ciara assures OK! that they are “just good friends.” However, the singers blushing and uncontrollable giggling at the mention of her leading man’s name did leave us wondering how much art imitates life.
