Sevyn Streeter On Friendship Breakups & Men Who Date Other Women

Sevyn is using her voice for more than just music.

Celebrity News

Sevyn Streeter recently released her latest album Drunken Wordz Sober Thoughtz and it's sexy. I'm talking, you may add a few songs to "the playlist," sexy. A few of my favorite tracks are "Change My Mind," "Nasty Girl," and "Wet Dreams." And while this album is definitely a mood-setter, I realize that I connect most of her songs with special moments or memories. When I belt out "B.A.N.S.," I'm really yelling at my ex. And when "It Won't Stop" is on repeat, it's because it's because I'm daydreaming of a relationship that makes me feel as free and beautiful as that song. But, in my opinion, that's what music is supposed to do, make you feel, escape, and think.


Recently, Sevyn Streeter went on The Breakfast Club to promote her project and discussed a host of topics. And one of the things that stuck out to me is that she is a strong communicator. For years, I struggled to find my voice. So it's easy to spot a person who is comfortable with theirs. For example, when discussing a friendship breakup, she said:

"It really hurt my feelings because I take my friendships with my girlfriends seriously. I'm very transparent with my friends. If there's ever an issue that we have, let's talk about it upfront the second that you feel it."

The same went for dating. I mean, we hear all the time how important it is to communicate when looking for companionship. However, sometimes it's difficult to ask the important questions you truly want to know, especially in the early stages. But Sevyn Streeter doesn't shy away from those conversations either. When asked what she thought about dating a man who dates other women, she responded:

"I'd be lying if I said it wouldn't make me feel some type of way. But, I think honestly in the beginning when you first start dating somebody it's kinda like that anyway, you don't know who they're talking to. Until things get to a certain point where you can say I don't really want you spending that much time with other people. I think then, you have that conversation and be really honest about it."

It's clear that this mentality has helped not only in her personal life, but in her art as well. Recently, she decided to leave her label and become an independent artist, which she seems to really be enjoying.

"I want my own label! But, I like the freedom, it's nice. If I felt like I was going to be surrounded by the right creatives, I would consider going back into a major. But, I'd want them to have an actual opinion about what this is, and I'd want to value it."

Sevyn Streeter has been giving the gworls hits for years. She's one of the artists I truly want to see win, and I truly like the album.

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.

At the start of each season, I browse the net to get an idea of the latest styles and trends to look out for when adding to my closet. When shopping, not only do I love items that are hot for the moment but mainly those that I can keep in rotation year after year. I especially look for styles that are both modern and classic, giving off an effortlessly timeless vibe.

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).
