Ciara and Normani Conquer Their Fear of Spiders Together

There’s Nothing Itsy Bitsy About the Spiders Ciara and Normani Played With

Ciara and Normani are brave! The ladies channeled their wild side and decided to conquer their fear of spiders. Ciara guest-hosted The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Thursday and did a segment where she and Normani held tarantulas — yes, tarantulas! "You're going to help me step into the wild side and meet some spiders," the 36-year-old guest host announced, to Normani's shock.

At first, Ciara recoiled in fear when the spider handler got out the first of three tarantulas. "They can feed off of fear right?" Normani asked, to which the handler affirmed with a sharp, "Yes." Ciara eventually got to the point where she confidently held all three. Normani, however, took a more hesitant approach and offered to just pet them. That's further than I would have gotten! Well done, ladies. Watch the clip above.

Also during the show, both performers watched a clip from Normani's "Wild Side" music video. Normani expressed that she took inspiration from other female icons, including Ciara. "You're somebody that I've looked up to forever. I've always felt like representation was so key and being a little girl in my grandmother's living room learning the '1, 2 Step' and 'Goodies,'" Normani professed. "You really helped shape the artist and the woman that I felt like I could be. You opened my mind to those possibilities… Black girl magic." It brought Ciara to tears. I may need some tissues as well. See the heartfelt video below.
