Morning Brew – Angel Haze opens up about her relationship with Ireland Baldwin


Happy Friday!

Angel Haze tells The Independent that the media likes to ignore her romantic/sexual relationship with Ireland Baldwin and simply call them best friends.

“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.”

“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 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.”

I can tell you, Angel, that legally, you have to “confirm or deny.” It’s dumb but real.

As a married openly lesbian bishop, I was thankful that Monifah and Terez were willing to share their lives with the world and allow me to share it with them. It was a great moment in history and a tremendous victory for human rights!”
