Angel Haze on Ireland Baldwin: ‘An interracial gay couple, I mean that’s just weird for America right now’
The rapper says that the press need to stop calling her and Baldwin just friends
Angel Haze has been amused by the way the media has addressed her relationship with Ireland Baldwin.
She thinks that the press are still too shy or uncomfortable to call them gay.
“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,” she told The Independent. “It’s funny. It’s rad in some ways, it sucks in others.”
Ireland and Haze met during New York Fashion Week through Baldwin’s cousin. They started off as friends, before getting romantically involved, informing the public about their relationship through affectionate Twitter chats and Instagram pictures of the two together.
“There are still certain limitations for women,” she said. “If we were two guys, it’d be insane, negatively insane with the attention. With us it’s all being very positive, the media are like, ‘Oh they’re so cute, they’re best friends.’
"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.”
The 22-year-old rapper - who is playing at Glastonbury this week - says that her new relationship has changed her endearingly pessimistic outlook.
“When you find it love it definitely amends your perspective on certain things,” she said. “I was dating a guy I really liked about a year ago and being around him and realising so many things about myself totally made me hate the traditional ideas of what a relationship should be, of what romance should be.
“You go out and you’re searching for this Utopian feeling, butterflies; that thing where you can’t stop thinking about them. It doesn’t have to be so overwhelming.”
