The greatest mystery of our time: Solved. Superstar songstress Ciara stopped by Chelsea Lately last night for a chat about her upcoming album, her relationship with boyfriend Future and her friendship with frequent collaborator Nicki Minaj (Ci cautions that it’s not like they talk every day, but they support each other professionally, so sure).

But the real revelations came when Chelsea began quizzing the R&B princess about her rather specific vocabulary — her explanation of the phrase “super turnt up” was fairly straightforward, but things got more interesting when she explained the now-iconic “He reads!” from her “Body Party” video. 

“And that means that he actually can read books?” Chelsea asked.

“No, he’s reading into the eyes,” Ciara replied.

And there you have it, folks. He’s reading your spirit. Or whatever.
