Wale Says His New Bae Taught Him The Power Of Affirmations

The rapper wants the world to put some respect on his girl's name.

Celebrity News

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."

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.
