I rarely give a shit what celebrities do outside of their work product. I couldn’t care less about their personal lives, their new babies or their award shows. You will never hear me say, “_____ got robbed at the Oscars!” Frankly, IDGAF and I think that’s pretty fair because celebrities don’t care about me either. None of them sent me condolence bouquets or began a Instagram hashtag when my whole team got stiffed on our bonuses a one year.
BUT, When I first laid eyes on Ciara and Russell’s engagement video via a Facebook friend, I was actually a little shocked at my reaction. A toothy smile, usually reserved for beach vacations and the receipt of unsolicited high dollar gifts, slowly spread across my face. I was so tickled that you would’ve thought it was my engagement and my ring. That ring.
The really weird thing is that I kept smiling. I walked around in a bubble of glee for few hours. Why?
- That ring.
- There is nothing more enjoyable than watching misogynists lose their already fragile minds. Ciara and Russell’s relationship threw a loud group of men into a social media and morning drive radio panic. These men think that Ciara is unworthy of her relationship. In their opinions, she is a “baby mama” and therefore a “ho.” Russell “could do way better.” “He should be with someone more like Ayesha Curry.” Sigh. Oh welp, silly rabbits, I guess the world is ending, pigs are flying and they’re watching Disney on Ice in hell, because this “ho” is getting married now! (Shug Avery voice) The thought of this insignificant group of losers dripping hot, salty tears into the ramen noodles they eat in their mom’s basement…just. makes. me. smile. 🙂
- Ciara’s engagement is a symbol of what is possible for me and you. We won’t all be tall, beautiful pop princesses with legwho can . We won’t all meet and fall in love with an NFL superstar. However, we can all do better once we know better. Our fuckboi past doesn’t have to be our future.
So cheers to you, Ciara and Russell! I wish you a lifetime of love, happiness and good sex. And by all means, please stay together. Keep me smiling because nothing succeeds like success.
