Wale Says His New Bae Taught Him The Power Of Affirmations


I'm not a snack, I'm a whole garden; one that needs water, sunshine, and positive words of affirmation to survive and thrive like the amazing lifeform that I am. And although I'm capable of getting full on all three of these things by my damn self, it's never a bad idea to have someone pour into you, especially if that someone is your partner. Recently, images surfaced of Wale and his new girlfriend, and he wants you to know that not only does she quench his thirst, but she offers him all of the sunshine and positive affirmations that his heart could handle.

In a live interview with Elliot Wilson, Wale let critics know that his girlfriend India Graham has a name we should get used to, so we should put some respect on it. Earlier this month, some good old fashioned PDA confirmed the couple's relationship, which Wale has *tried* to keep under wraps until now. According to the internet, the 22-year-old model is originally from Lansing, Michigan, loves cooking, and oh yeah, makes six figures a year, and during his interview, Wale had a word for India's critics:

"Now, you say 'that model chick.' By the grace of God, I don't ever want those words to leave your lips again like that, 'cause that ain't no model chick. That's a special human being that came in my life, taught me about affirmations, taught me how to love better, taught me how to be positive."

In the past, the rapper has been open about his issues with commitment and transparency in his romantic relationships and even was the subject of a "love intervention" on Jada Pinkett Smith's Red Table Talk. The father-of-one was previously linked to Chloe Alexis and says that although he and the mother of his child decided to find love outside of one another, he still will have her back any day, and that's on gang.

"I got one of the most beautiful, powerful, inspirational, dedicated baby mothers of all time. I do! Somewhere along the line, we lost our way – as far as us connecting as lovers – but I will always hold that woman down for the rest of my life until I have no motherf*ckin' breath left in my lungs."

Now, after taking time to heal from his past transgressions, Wale is ready to open his heart again, and from the looks of it, he's finally found the "Ambitious Girl" he dreamed of. Along with teaching him about the power of affirmation, Wale says India has helped him learn more about himself:

"That woman's beautiful inside and out. That woman taught me so much about myself. And model chick's disgustingly underplaying what she really is. She is a smart, beautiful, motivating Black woman. She just happens to be good and makes six figures for taking pictures."

How A Stay At Switzerland's Luxurious 7132 Hotel Reminded Me To Live The Life I Deserve

Sometimes, as women—especially as single Black women—we simply need to be reminded that we are deserving of living a life we dream of. Even if that means creating it for ourselves. I recently set out on a weeklong trip to Switzerland, a trip I’ve been wanting to take for years, and near the end of my visit, I had an epiphany.

“DeAnna, this is the life you deserve,” I thought to myself as I took in the gorgeous bathroom in my suite at the famous 7132 Hotel and Thermal Spa. It was one of the most luxurious hotels (and bathrooms) I had ever stayed in—and that’s saying a lot for someone who often travels for work.
