"I guess it ain't meant for everybody."

Ari Lennox made a shocking revelation about love to her fans late last week. The "Shea Butter Baby" singer fired off a series of tweets about never being in love, which sent her fans into a frenzy. The first tweet said, "Damn I want to be in love. Never experienced it." But she didn't stop there.


She also tweeted, "Two dreams in this life. To be a singer and to experience true romantic love. The older I get I be like how lol. I don't be satisfied long and I don't be tryna settle. I guess it ain't meant for everybody," and "And who cares right? Romantic love is a luxury not a necessity" along with other tweets.

While she never disclosed what motivated her to share the realization on Twitter, many fans were taken aback due to the fact that the R&B beauty sings about love and relationships. Ari even retweeted a fan who wrote, "love is meant for everyone. we just do a better job at pushing it away than preserving it," to which the singer responded, "Whew a word."

It seems that other fans took her tweets as a sign to shoot their shot at her. Not too long after she shook the internet, she tweeted, "This was not a cry for dates btw more so like finding out the truth about santa."

But just because the "Pressure" singer hasn't experienced love, that doesn't mean she doesn't have potential suitors. Back in March 2020, actor LaKeith Stanfield professed his interest in Ari on Instagram Live. Ari was discussing the film The Photograph which stars LaKeith and Issa Rae on Instagram Live when the multi-talented actor hopped in the comment section.

"I was in the theaters by myself, in a hoodie just looking pitiful. No date, nothin' just sitting there, shedding tears thinking of my got damn love life and how it's exceedingly nonexistent," she ranted. LaKeith responded, "Thank you love 🌹." But what he said next took the singer by surprise. "Can you be my date? Let's go," he wrote.

At that point, Ari was skittish and tried to change the subject. "LaKeith I don't have time for this right now because you're joking, I don't have time, no. We're changing the subject," she said shyly.

It appeared nothing came out of their conversation, but we're hopeful that the 30-year-old will find love one day.

Gabrielle Union is not here for the label stepparent. While she became a stepparent after marrying Dwyane Wade in 2014, that doesn't mean that she wants to be defined by it. The actress spoke about the dislike of that term during her appearance on Glennon Doyle's "We Can Do Hard Things" podcast.

It was actually pretty close to this time last year when I penned the piece "How To Get Through The Holidays If You Don't Observe Them". Unlike some of the other articles that I write for the site, I pulled that one from very personal experience. Being that my personality is very wired to "be good" on something once I know its origin, holidays are something that I tend to take a pass on; this includes Thanksgiving (some insightful reads on its origin are found here, here and here). Still, this doesn't mean I'm not aware of the fact that many people use this time of year to reflect on their blessings and to say "thanks" for all the good that has come their way. Since I like to write on relationships a lot, I thought to myself, "Why not come up with ways for people to show gratitude to their significant other?"

I didn't want to say that I was having bad luck. That's not something I'd ever want to speak into existence over my life. But I will say something wasn't right. I had a few coins stacked in my purse from a one-time project as well as from an ongoing one. Then I received emails from not one but two publications within days apart asking me if I'd like to contribute a few articles every week. Opportunities and money were flowing in. If you follow the law of attraction, you'd say I was vibrating on a high frequency.

Tinashe has learned a lot about her mental health while growing up in the entertainment industry. The singer/songwriter began dancing at four years old and had her first movie role at five years old.

My favorite time of the year is the start of the official boot season which begins during the transitional period between summer and fall. What's most exciting about the sudden drop in temperatures is stepping back into those sleek pair of boots for the first time in months. Whether zipping up oldies but goodies or investing in a new fall 2021 boot trend, this year is all about the calf boot. Specifically, this is the best option when easing your summer clothes into the appropriate fall looks.
