I’m trying to start this post off slow and steady, but I can’t! What the hell is up with Keyshia Cole?! Is she crazy? First she goes and gets this R.A.N’s (Random Ass N*gga’s) name tattood to her shoulder, though they’d been dating for about 4mos [at the time]! Then, she pulls the disappearing act on all her fans, and POOF! — pops back up, pregnant as all hell.
NBA Player Daniel “Boobie” Gibson & Keyshia Cole
*Frustation building.* I just don’t know what to do. Yes it is her life, and she can do as she pleases, but why doesn’t he get her name tattood to him as well, and buy her a damn ring?! And yeah yeah yeah…I know not every couple HAS to get married to be happy (Halle & Gabriel; Tiny & T.I.; Monica & Rocko), but damn Keyshia! What kind of example is this?! She’s seriously acting as if she has NO money and still lives in the damn ghetto. Get some class!
Things may look fine and dandy now, but that’s how it always looks in the beginning. Yeah he looks like a nice guy, but so did Chris Brown! As a matter of fact, Chris still looks like the same ‘ole Chris. Smiles mean nothing. You learn something new everyday, and they’re still so young. Why not wait a while?
I’m baffled. Why do so many women CHOOSE to be stereotypes?
Keyshia’s life would seriously make a good urban book…
Little light skinned girl gets taken in by another family because her crackhead mother, who has about 9 other children (whom she can’t all find) by several different men, was off doing her crackheaded deeds and locked up in a jail somewhere with no teeth. It so turns out that the little light skinned girl can sang, and gets a record deal! Then LLSG saves her “real” family. She moves her former-crackhead mom and loud ass sister (who now has like 5 kids, by several different men as well) into their own home. Now LLSG meets a BALLER (basket ball-er that is) and is immediately smitten! All three women get their man’s name tattood to themselves in the same year…THE END! Will they live happily ever after? Who knows? Buy the sequel to find out!
I must say Keyshia Cole looks ridiculously happy.. she is absolutely glowing with the joy of being in love. Love in itself is such a powerful emotion, how can you blame people for doing something as crazy as getting a tat for the one that gives them such a high?
…this comment makes it sound so much better, doesn’t it? — But, then you wake up and smell the Premium coffee, and remember that love is not a guarantee! You lessen your chances by choosing to dive into something so quickly. If you decide you want to be with your significant other FOREVER, then what’s the rush? Keyshia is 28 yrs old, and the boy is 23. What could he of all men know?! — Wait. Obviously he knows more than Keyshia! He isn’t the one who’s tatted up, or knocked up! Other sites have even reported that he’s a [rumored] cheater.
Here’s what LJ had to say about that one:
I am especially upset at Keyshia Cole. She is always singing about getting her heart broken and learning from those lessons. An act like this makes her lose all credibility. What exactly did you learn? In fact, wasn’t she just with [Young] Jeezy not too long ago? She hasn’t even been with this new man for a couple of years and she has branded his name on her. Keyshia Cole is stupid. Yeah I said it. She is stupid. She is stupid for choosing to go the ghetto love route and get a tattoo rather than a ring. Why not? You obviously have your minds made up that you are going to be together forever after only a few months so don’t half ass it. Make it official.
…well said LJ! Well said.
All in all, I do believe Keyshia is genuinely happy. She looks it! And I am happy for her. I just hope this wasn’t ANOTHER silly move, and that these two are both serious about making their relationship a long-term one. Ring or no ring. She’s about to have a damn baby anyways, so a ring doesn’t even matter now!
Oh, and before I forget…my examples of other celebs who have chosen to have children out of wedlock are either much older than these two or have been with that person for years. My main point is not so much the having a child out of wedlock part, but is mainly the amount of time this relationship has been official, and how many random acts have gone down within that time frame.
After watching this video and listening to this song, which I believe was aimed towards their relationship (peep Keyshia rocking Boobie’s Cavaliers jersey in the vid), I just PRAY this young love and family grows and continues to be happy!…
