After months of sexting via Twitter and Instagram, Ireland Baldwin and Angel Haze have tired of your questions surrounding their relationship. Specifically those that indicate you don’t believe they’re in a “real” relationship – you relationship-deniers, you. I mean, what more do you want them to do? They’ve done just about everything they can to prove it to you, including publicly inviting you along on their sexytime journeys! The lovesick, tortured tweets and half-naked photos they post on the reg apparently aren’t enough to convince the world they’re not just “fooling around”, and Angel Haze has had enough of it.
“I don’t know if there’s like some confirm or deny thing with the way relationships work in the media, but everyone just calls us best friends, best friends for life, like we’re just friends hanging out.”
As far as confirming or denying a relationship in the media, these two must not be aware that you can sext suggestive selfies on Twitter all you want, but unless you’re getting photographed together while picking up quinoa and almond milk at Whole Foods – no one is going to take you seriously. Take note, ladies. I kid, I kid. Angel Haze expanded on her frustrations over her relationship with Ireland not being taken seriously:
“An interracial gay couple, I mean that’s just weird for America right now. We f**k and friends don’t f**k. I have never f**ked one of my friends. Once I see you in that way, it doesn’t happen. 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.”
I have to admit, I’m kind of left scratching my head a little over this one. Not because I disagree with her, per say, but because I think she’s missing the mark somewhat. An interracial gay couple is still a difficult thing for a lot of people in America to digest, to be sure. Which is incredibly unfortunate – that part I agree with. But I don’t think that’s the reason the Twitterverse and The Almighty Media aren’t taking them seriously. I think the fact that they’re that couple constantly shoving your face in their most intimate moments and desperately trying to convince you they’re together is why people aren’t taking them seriously. But they’re young, and I used to put Sex and the City quotes in the deepest realms of my AIM profile to let the guy I was hooking up with know I thought he was totally a Berger, so what do I know? (Remember how you were, like, soooo deeeeep back then? Like on-another-level-deep. Sooooo much deeper than your friends.)
Though if you combine their intense PDA (screaming “LOOK AT US LOOK AT US NOW/WE BANG, WE’RE TOTALLY BANGING” makes me skeptical of any relationship, whether you’re famous or not), their youth, and the fact that Ireland was in a long-term, live-in relationship with Slater Trout not so very long ago (I am leaving the fact that she’s Alec Baldwin‘s daughter and therefore genetically predisposed to attention-seeking behavior out of this one), I think you’ve got a much more believable formula for why they’re having trouble convincing some people they’re in true love.
But who cares what people think! Oh wait, they do. Along with every other human on earth. Ugh, we’re all doomed.
