Rapper Angel Haze told the UK paper the Independent she is often annoyed that coverage of her relationship with Baldwin often refers to the couple as “best friends”. Ireland Baldwin is the golden haired daughter of Kim Basinger and Alec Baldwin.
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. It’s funny. It’s rad in some ways, it sucks in others.”
The rapper has accused the press of being uncomfortable with her interracial lesbian relationship with Ireland Baldwin.
There are still certain limitations for women. 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’. An interracial gay couple, I mean that’s just weird for America right now. We f**k and friends don’t f**k. I have never f**ked one of my friends. Once I see you in that way, it doesn’t happen. But we do f**k 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.”
Earlier this year, Angel Haze released her own version of Macklemore’s track Same Love.
