Days of future past.

Ciara joined Ludacris on Good Morning America yesterday to announce the nominees for the Billboard Music Awards, and everything was going off without a hitch until she came to the Top Rap Artist category. One name she just couldn’t bring herself to say, reason being it just happened to belong to former fiancé and baby daddy Future, whose split we all know was not in the least bit amicable.

So whether she refuses to acknowledge his achievements or promised new future hubby Russell Wilson his name would never come out her mouth again, her decision made for an awkward live situation. Ludacris sensed the hesitation and, much like his role in the Fast and Furious franchise, swiftly stepped in and saved the day.

Could there be a name change in baby Future’s future?
