Angel Haze told The Independent on Friday she doesn’t think America can handle an interracial gay couple yet. It isn’t the relationship that’s the problem, but the crude manner in which she outed the celebrity pair.
From Miley Cyrus to Angel Haze, there is just something wrong with the way some of young America behaves. There is no reason for vulgarity or to publicly declare that you ”f**k” your partner. If you are in a relationship, sex is implied and it doesn’t need to be devalued with profanity, whether you are homosexual, bisexual or straight.
The 22-year-old rapper has hinted at her relationship with Ireland Baldwin on Twitter, and became annoyed because the media declared the couple “cute best friends.” In an interview with The Independent while in Glastonbury, Angel Haze candidly discussed her romantic feelings for Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger’s 18-year-old daughter in terms no parent would want to hear, regardless of one’s sexuality. “We f**k and friends don’t f**k. I have never f**ked one of my friends.”
The “Battle Cry” singer went on to state “An interracial gay couple is weird for America right now,” and is worried about what her audience would think when they read that she has sex with Ireland Baldwin.
But we do f**k and it’s crazy and that’s weird to say because I think about it in terms of an audience reading it and them thinking, ‘What the hell?’ But it happens.
Yes, it does happen even with a six-foot-two-inch-tall fashion model and a much smaller hip-hop artist. Haze went on to say that if her Twitter and Instagram posts were of two men, they would have received “negatively insane attention” unlike the positive, “Oh they’re so cute, they’re best friends,” which led to the vulgarity to drive her point home.
Regardless of the language Angel Haze chose to explain the relationship with Baldwin, she is in love with Ireland and her new romance has changed her somber outlook on life. The full interview with Angel Haze on "lesbians, marriage, rap and depression" can be read here.
