Cassie Says She Owes Her Comeback To Black Women

Celebrity News

We all know that when a bunch of bomb Black women link up, magical sh*t is bound to manifest. Every time I see another woman using her talents to live her best life, it's like looking into a mirror and I'm finally able to see all of my magic and potential reflected back at me in real-time. It's true that there's something truly special about finding your tribe, and for Cassie, that meant restructuring her creative team.


After experiencing a very public breakup with industry legend, Diddy, Cassie has bounced back in true hot girl fashion. Not only does she have a fine baby zaddy, a newly revived career, and a bouncing baby girl on the way, but the singer recently revealed that she also has a new squad.

The 32-year-old entertainer recently sat down with L'Officieland opened up about learning to trust herself again, and according to Cassie, the first step was creating a crew of reliable confidants. As of today, the singer's creative team is now composed of mostly black women, and Cassie says that this was a much-needed change. She explained:

"When it comes to me choosing to work with certain people I have to go off of an organic connection. I love the fact that everyone that I work with now communicates fully on every aspect, we are not in competition, we work as a team and they actually understand who I am and who I want to mold myself to become. As a group, we work as a collective. For me, this is the first time that I feel that I actually have a strong team in place that has my best interests at heart and the added bonus is that the majority of the team are creative black females. To me, it means we see each other."

After spending years overthinking and wallowing in self-doubt, the "Me & U" singer is now in a place where she feels confident in her voice, but that didn't come without the support of the women around her. There's no "I" in team, but having a good tribe can be the key in rediscovering the real you.

"More than anything, I would say that my creative process has changed since working with a new team. I feel supported so I make decisions based on what's best for me. I used to spend the most time overthinking the smallest things and always worrying about how people felt that I neglected how I really felt and what would make me happy."

The opportunity to work with women who have encountered similar trials but at the same time have had different experiences is truly a blessing, and for Cassie, having that foundation has been key in rebuilding the vision she has for her life.

"The energy I feel when we're in a room together is unmatchable. We all have our own levels of experience and we bring our best to the table. We support each other and balance each other out all at the same time. It just works."

The mommy-to-be shared that while before, she was wrapped up in the thoughts of others, now, she cares more about what she thinks of herself. For Cassie, it was important to write music that could one day inspire her daughter. Keeping her promise, Cassie recently dropped three new singles, that unlike her former projects, were "written from the heart". She continued:

"My priorities have absolutely changed, not just for creating an amazing future and life for my daughter, but because I want her to be proud of me. I've heard people say that they're nervous to raise females in today's world, but I'm excited! I can't wait to see her grow, learn and challenge the world right back!"

The month begins with Mercury officially moving out of retrograde and going direct in Virgo. Mercury this month is cleaning house and sprucing things up after the somewhat tyrant energy it’s brought over the past few weeks. Now that Mercury is direct, there is less interruption when it comes to daily flow and plans, and this is a good month to start setting things into motion.

The Myth Of The Sex Drive & How Libido Changes From Your 20s, 30s, 40s & 50s

No one prepared me for how horny I would be in my late 30s. All the elders in my life prepared me for random chin hairs, weight gain, and menopause but no one said a mumbling word about my sex drive. Something happens the closer you get to forty. I went from wanting sex here and there to wanting it all the damn time. Is there a support group for this? I can’t be the only one who has the sex drive of the Energizer Bunny. Upon my research to figure out why I felt like a cat in heat, I discovered several theories surrounding women and our sex drives–including one that says the concept of having a sex drive is a myth altogether.

If you have been on social media for any significant amount of time this year you may have come across women saying that they are in their “villain era.” For these women, being a villain means embracing the negativity and judgment from others that comes when you say “no” to people, and living your life unapologetically. For them, being a villain means letting the chips fall where they may when you no longer allow other people’s ideas about you to restrict you from living the life that you want and deserve.
