In case you have been under a rock, August Alsina revealed in an interview with The Breakfast Club’s Angela Yee that he had a relationship with Jada Pinkett Smith. He also said that Will Smith gave his blessing. Why you ask would he bring this up four years later? Well, Young August had an album dropping and needed promotion. He needed someone to listen to 27 songs, half of which sounded the same. Full transparency, I didn’t give the album a thorough listen, because you all know, 11-12 songs are my limit! Especially if they all sound alike. At any rate, let’s get to the lesson of all of this.
1. Don’t let anyone use your truth against you.
Jada Pinkett came right out and said, “Yes I had a relationship with that young man” Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, this is how you control your narrative. At this point, it’s no longer a smoking gun because she owned it! Jada didn’t even have to leave the comfort of her own home to get this shit clear! She called the crew to her dining room to set the record straight!
2. A “Separation” is NOT a divorce.
In the words of Linnethia “NeNe” Leakes, “Close your legs to married men,” In this case keep your d*ck in your pants where married women are concerned August!
Now you look, stupid young sir! Jada and Will were unbothered they were high-fiving and laughing as if nothing happened. They handled this situation so professionally. For all intents and purposes, Jada and Will Smith did help him through a rough patch in his life. He was definitely spiraling out of control. He probably could have remained on good terms with them had he not decided to air out the dirty laundry for albums sales. But someone had to listen to those 27 songs, right?
3. “Entanglement” is the new word for a relationship that you don’t want to cop to.
Leave it to Lena James AKA Peaches AKA Stony to give us a new word to use when you don’t want to come right out and say you were in a relationship with someone. Just say you were in an “entanglement” That part of the interview sent me! But I love how Will called her on her shit!
