Growing older doesn't mean they are growing apart.

When Chlöe Bailey first stepped onto the scene with her sister Halle as the Beyonce-backed duo Chloe x Halle, they commanded everyone's attention with their powerful yet angelic voices. Now, they are all grown up and working on separate endeavors, but that doesn't mean they are growing apart.


Rumors of the sisters splitting up first began when they created separate social media accounts this past January after sharing one together for 9 years. Then, it was announced that Halle Bailey would star as Ariel in the live-action remake The Little Mermaid (slated for a 2023 release) and more recently, Chlöe released her bass heavy solo single "Have Mercy" with a jaw-dropping video attached.

The 23-year-old also made her solo debut at the 2021 VMAs performing the hit single and Halle was also there presenting her big sister to the masses.

During her recent appearance on The Real, the Grown-ish star opened up about her solo journey calling it "exciting" but "scary" and how Halle is by her side.

"...even though I have been promoting this new song, my sister has been there with me every step of the way. I always see her every day like even at the VMAs we were like this there (crossing her fingers). So, it doesn't really feel like I'm alone and even right before the performance, Halle introduced me and across the stage I was able to just look out at her and I was almost in tears before I even started singing. And I was like OK, even though I feel alone sometimes, I'm never alone 'cause she's right there and I hope she feels the same with me."

Following Chlöe's epic performance, the sisters linked back up to perform at the Global Citizen concert reminding their Chloe x Halle fans that their bond can never be broken.

"I think we both needed that performance that night. I can't explain it. Right before we went on, Stevie Wonder was performing. We were backstage, we're like, 'oh my goodness.' We felt the love and the high energy and we were both so nervous because you know in this pandemic, we haven't really been out in front of an audience performing together like that so being out there, it just felt so freeing. I got to look over to my left and see my beautiful sister and her voice is out of this world and being able to harmonize like that together, it was just... it was the best feeling."

The dynamic duo continues to wow fans whether they are singing together or apart and they also have each other's backs, no matter what. Chloe and Halle prove time and time again what it means to be a sister and how to grow up while growing together.

Simone Biles is a decorated U.S. gymnast who captured the hearts of many with her ambitious, yet graceful moves. However, over the past year, fans got to witness another side of Simone after the gymnast began expressing the issues she's faced regarding her mental health. The Olympic gold medalist shocked everyone when she pulled out of some of the 2020 Tokyo Olympic games, citing "twisties" as the reason. The twisties is a gymnastics term that is described as losing control of your body while spinning in the air.

The relationship we have and nurture with self lays the foundation for how we relate to and connect with others in our lives. Assessing the issues that discourage self-love from prospering are key in order to repair and reignite the freedom that comes when we finally believe the words "you are enough." I chatted with self-love advocate and lifestyle entrepreneur Shelah Marie – who you may remember from when her 2017 photo of doing yoga with boyfriend, rapper Ace Hood, went viral. Shelah's mission is to create a movement of total self-love and liberation for women of color through her platform Curvy, Curly, Conscious – a place where "self-help" meets "real talk" through virtual and offline events and retreats.

The first time I really learned about the five love languages was a year after a big heartbreak in my early twenties, and since then I've found myself exploring the love languages of each of my subsequent partners in an effort to be a better lover to them. At the click of a simple quiz, you'll know whether words of affirmation, acts of service, quality time, receiving gifts, or physical touch is the primary way you prefer to experience love.

Kissing is such a fascinating thing — to me. The reason why I say that is because, if the person you are exchanging a kiss with is someone who is good at it, it can be the sexiest, most special and most exhilarating thing ever. On the other hand, if they aren't so good — it's just gross. I don't know about y'all, but kissing is such a big deal in my world that I once broke up with someone, in part, because they totally sucked at doing it. It was like, no matter how hard I tried to explain to them what I needed in order to feel like we were in "kissing sync", they would continue to go off and do their own thing. All over my face (yuck).
