First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes baby in a baby carriage. If only times were still like this in today’s society. It seems that people, including celebrities, just don’t care about love and marriage before starting a family.
There are plenty of reasons why we shouldn’t look to celebrity couples for relationship inspiration. It seems most celebrity couples are brought together for publicity purposes alone. (“Just ask Kanye’s ex-girlfriend“). And they stay with each other through all the lies, cheating and beatings.
Here are a few celebrity couples you definitely don’t want to be like:
Kim Kardashian & Kanye West:
Kim and Kanye are one of the most talked about celebrity couples today. It’s speculated that he’s been crushing on her for years, even writing about her in some of his songs. When the pair finally became an item, it seemed a no brainer: She loved dating black men, and black men, well, love dating women with big asses. News recently broke out that the item are expecting their first child together. Isn’t that nice.
Even though the Kim and Kanye couple aren’t married yet, they still plan on having the baby, and announced it to the world in a way only Kanye could.
While performing his song “Now you having my baby,” during an Atlantic City concert On Dec. 30th, he stopped the mid-song to say, “Can we make some noise for my baby mama?” Kim, later confirmed the news in a blog post on her website saying, “It’s true!! Kanye and I are expecting a baby.”
There’s gossip about how much money the stars will receive to publish the first baby photos. Allegedly the happy couple already turned down a $3 million offer. Perhaps they’re holding out more money for their baby’s college fund? Yeah, right.
Rihanna & Chris Brown:
Their seemingly happy relationship turned into one of the most traumatic celebrity couple relationships in history. After the 2009 Grammys, Rihanna was beaten by her then boyfriend Chris Brown.
It’s still not known with 100 percent certainty if he had decided to use her face as a punching bag, but rumors started circulating it’s because she saw text messages on his phone from another woman and freaked out. Pictures of her bruised and battered face circled all over the Internet with many businesses boycotting all of Breezy’s music.
Three years later, it seems the pair have decided to put all that behind them to try and make their relationship work again. They even collaborated together on her new song “Nobody’s Business and Birthday Cakes.”
As part of the 10 Commandments of Marriage, relationship expert Ed Young writes, “I shall not share the details of our marriage with others” in his “Love Affair” series. Maybe the couple should take their own advice, as well as Pastor Young’s, and keep their love affair to themselves; it really is nobody’s business.
Taylor Swift & Successful Men Everywhere:
Taylor Swift is one of the most idolized young entertainers to teenage (and adult) women everywhere. But her relationship choices are, well, questionable. Rumor has it she’s been linked to 13 different men in four years.
Did I mention she’s barely legal? This 23-years-old country star has been linked to top Hollywood actors and artists including Joe Jonas, John Mayer, Taylor Lautner, Jake Gyllenhaal, Conor Kennedy and Harry Styles. It seems she only likes to serial date men so she can get platinum records.
She’s made smash hit singles after every breakup. Perhaps she needs to seek relationship counseling from someone like Pastor Young to help her obvious issues with men.
So, do you agree?
