So…Have you heard the news? Clifford “T.I.” Harris and Tameka “Tiny” Harris have decided to get a divorce. Tiny filed after allegedly finding out about her husband's extra marital affairs, and I'm assuming some other things that we haven't been made privy to. Mr. Harris recently did an interview with Angie Martinez, where he states that Marriage is a distraction to his progression. Marriage is a distraction, Huh? I have so many questions. I've decided to use my platform to ask them.
WHEN did being married become distracting?
Don't look like that. I just asking!
Let's be clear. Anything that makes you selfless and nurturing will have to share the limelight in your life. Whether it's being a spouse, a father, a business partner, a loving child…. Hell, just choosing NOT to be an Asshole can cause “distraction”. With that being said, at what point did having a life partner become so terribly distracting that you can go find ANOTHER distraction (ie. The alleged side joint) and violate the vows you’ve taken? Was worrying about her well being and growth distracting you from making music and landing acting roles? This sounds more SELFISH than distracting… but I could be wrong! Correct ME!
WHY did it take you decades to realize that you aren't the Marrying type?
Madd Kids. NOW you're distracted?
Mr. Harris didn't say that being married to TINY was distracting. He said “Marriage, and what it represents” is the distraction. Sooo….
I mean, COMME AHN! Did you know for years, but didn't want to pass on the reality TV money? Did you stay “for the kids”? I mean, I've done that. I also bounced on the idea of being miserable with the wrong person. Not marriage as a whole. So yeah. When did you have this “I'm forever a bachelor” epiphany? Was it before or after she was by your side when you committed numerous felonies? Numerous outside affairs? TELL ME! I am over here mad curious!
WHAT made you finally give up on Married life?
Not just HER, but marriage!
Was it Floyd? Did your own medicine taste that gross that you just did away with marriage completely? Was it the freedom? What was it? I mean, people get divorced every day, B. BUT… people don't blame their lack of growth on the WHOLE IDEA of growing as a couple and doing life as one. Marriage itself is a commitment, and it can most definitely become taxing and indeed a distraction from careers and such...I personally think that is LIFE. You can't focus on everything at the same damn time and expect it all to be amazing ALL.THE.TIME.
I personally think that it's Bullshit. Marriage ain't for the selfish or the weak. Marriage can add so much SAUCE to your life's “cuisine”, but you gotta know when to turn up the heat, and when to let things simmer. When to add a little more flavor, all while making sure you don't have a heavy hand (I like food, so pardon my greedy analogy). Basically, marriage is a distraction when you want to do effed up shit and not have to answer to anyone. Making decisions without worrying about objections.
So Cliff. Distracted or Selfish? Tell me the truth. I won't tell anyone. 🙃
Exes and Ohs….
