American rapper Angel Haze who has been at the focus following her acceptance that she and Alec Baldwin’s daughter Ireland Baldwin are in gay relationship is quite uncertain that her country may not accept them as couple, which is touted as “interracial gay couple.”
In an interview with The Independent published Friday, the “Battle Cry” rapper said that she and Alec Baldwin’s 18-year-old daughter are dating, and lamented that the press has been reluctant to acknowledge the true nature of their relationship.
“I don’t know if there’s like some confirm or deny thing with the way relationships work in the media, but everyone just calls us best friends, best friends for life, like we’re just friends hanging out,” she said. “It’s funny. It’s rad in some ways, it sucks in others.”
Haze and Baldwin, who met at New York Fashion Week through Baldwin’s cousin, were initially friends before they started dating. The two have documented their blossoming romance on social media, which makes Haze wonder why the media still prefers to describe them as friends.
“There are still certain limitations for women,” the 22-year-old rapper said. “If we were two guys, it’d be insane, negatively insane with the attention. With us it’s all being very positive, the media are like, ‘Oh they’re so cute, they’re best friends.’”
Haze also mused that Americans might not be comfortable with a high-profile interracial romance between two woman.
“An interracial gay couple, I mean that’s just weird for America right now. We f— and friends don’t f—,” she said. “ I have never f—— one of my friends. Once I see you in that way, it doesn’t happen.“
“But we do f— and it’s crazy and that’s weird to say because I think about it in terms of an audience reading it and them thinking, ‘What the hell?’ But it happens,” she added.
Baldwin accompanied Haze to the Glastonbury Festival in England, with the rapper performing Saturday.
