Saweetie Said "Presents Don’t Band-Aid Scars" And I Felt That


Over the weekend, darling couple, Saweetie and Quavo set the internet on fire when they (she) announced that they had broken up.

And celebrities break up every day, b. But in this case, it’s more so about how publicly it happened.

Twitter

Saweetie took to social media to announce the “news" after much speculation. She went on to say:

“I emotionally checked out a long time ago and have walked away with a deep sense of peace and freedom. Excited for this new chapter of elevation."

Sidebar: That's some unapologetic shit right there, love to see it.

Anyway, Quavo went on to basically blame her for her calling out his infidelity (make it make sense). To which she responded with a tweet that traveled around the world:

Twitter​

Ouch.

But for me, all this isn't about the fact that they decided to split, or how publicly it was done. It's about the gems our girl dropped when doing so—specifically:

“Presents don't band aid scars."

I felt that. You felt that.

Since the beginning of their relationship, Saweetie has bragged on the extravagant lifestyle that she has, including the gifts that Quavo has given to her. For Christmas, he gave her a custom Bentley to match her brand, and a few months prior, she said on IG Live:

"If he not getting you a Birkin, if he not paying for your bills, then throw that n**** back to the streets, OK?"

She later clarified her comments saying:

"Well, you know, one thing that people have to realize is I'm an entertainer and I come to entertain. So that was an entertaining comment. Like Jay-Z says at the end of 'Ignorant Shit,' he goes, 'It's only entertainment,' and then he does this little evil laugh. I was having a good time promoting [her single] 'Back to the Streets.' And, you know, I'm popping my s**t for my girls. But I feel like a Birkin symbolizes a gift of value."

So, to see her tweet about why receiving gifts in response to being hurt is problematic, shows her maturity and growth as a woman.

And as an empowerment hub for all black women, and as fans of Saweetie and what she represents and provides to the culture, that's the kind of growth we love to see.

We're excited for your next chapter, sis!
