Ari Lennox Tweets About Never Being In Love: 'I Don't Be Tryna Settle'

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

Celebrity News

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.

Your Guide To Reclaiming Your Power In Relationships

The law of attraction is tricky. A few years ago, I felt something was deeply wrong with me because I kept attracting people who hurt me. No matter how hard I tried to fix myself, and alter my energy, the same type of people kept coming my way. I'd talk to my friends about it and ask them, "Why do I keep attracting this type of person? Why do I keep having the same experiences?"

Here's Why You Should Ditch Fourth Of July And Have A Family Reunion Instead

“Who made the potato salad?” As summertime kicks off, this is the universal question that, without fail, will be asked at every barbeque and backyard kickback over the coming months. With the Fourth of July also nearing, summertime celebrations and cookouts will be in full force. However, as the tide begins to turn in this new day and age, more Black Americans are celebrating Juneteenth, instead of the Fourth of July, because, after all, there were still over 250,000 Black Americans enslaved in Galveston, Texas during this so-called Independence Day.
