Angel Haze and Ireland Baldwin: A love story told on Twitter
A damaged and brilliant rapper from the wrong side of the tracks meets and falls in love with the pretty blonde daughter of a famous actor. No, it’s not the plot of a CW pilot. It’s the plot of Angel Haze’s love life as told by social media. It all started that strange summer in the O.C., when Ireland Baldwin staggered out of a taupe Mcmansion, sucking on an e-cig and anxiously twisting her David Yurman skull statement ring. A dark, smirking, lanky figure loomed unexpectedly in the gated cul-de-sac.
“Who are you?” whispered in a husky voice she learned last month in improv class.
Angel Haze lifted her leather snapback, gazing at Ireland Baldwin with wide mahogany eyes.
“Whoever you want me to be.”
Is this a thing? I hate the description. Love is nice, and open, publicized lesbian love is nice - but this weird description paints a picture of super elitist fantasy land garbage rescuing some disenfranchised black person/diamond in the rough. Lots of people from different backgrounds fall in love all the time. This weird summary of one love story smacks of romanticized ignorant everything.
