Naomi Osaka Gushes Over BF Rapper Cordae And His New Album

"You're a star and a light."

Celebrity News

Naomi Osaka is praising her boyfriend Cordae on his new album. The couple has been together for three years and during that time fans have witnessed them shower each other with support such as the rapper attending Naomi’s tennis matches to now the four-time Grand Slam champion showing love to the Grammy-nominated artist's album Bird’s Eye View on social media.

The 24-year-old posted a photo on Instagram of the couple looking cozy together on an outdoor patio along with a sweet caption.

“Getting closer to someone and seeing how much love and dedication they put into their craft is truly inspiring,” she wrote.

“Makes you feel like some people are born to do certain things, @cordae you’re a star and a light, quite literally brighten up every room you walk in (or maybe it’s your hair lol).

“Congratulations on your 2nd album, proud of you ❤️.”


The couple is known to be lowkey, but they opened up about their relationship during a February 2021 interview with GQ for their "Modern Lovers" issue.

“We were dating for almost a year before people knew about us,” Cordae said. “So we kind of move very reclusively. We don’t really post intimate moments, because I feel as though they’re sacred. A relationship is really a sacred thing. Once you let outside influences get into it, it becomes less sacred.”

The couple had their first date at a Clippers game and since then has been photographed together at other games including Naomi’s memorable win at the 2019 U.S. Open, which the rapper revealed was the first time he ever attended a tennis match. He also mentioned that the tennis star goes on tour with him.

“... It’s like she’s the only girl in the crew. You know how a tour bus goes: It’s me, the band, security, the homies, tour management, lights, sound engineer. You know what I’m saying? She’ll just take time out of, you know, whatever she got going on training and things of that nature to just come with us on tour for, like, two weeks at a time.”

Ah, young love!

Your October 2022 Horoscopes Are All About Finding Flow & Alignment

October is a month of balance. With some energy moving direct and some energy moving retrograde, there is a middle ground to find this month between what is unfolding and what you are letting go. 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.

Black woman with an afro and tube top laughing

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.
