I can’t get into the social networking service Twitter. I have no interest in reading endless twits from self-indulgent individuals detailing what they had for breakfast. They should have named the service ‘fritter’ instead — as in frittering away your mundane life online.
But loyal reader S.Joy keeps up with singer Solange Knowles on her Twitter. So she sent me this pic that Solo posted this morning of her boyfriend on Venice Beach. What I find weird — besides the fact that the boyfriend seems very suspect — is Solo strangely refers to the boyfriend as “he.”
Now I realize today’s young’ns have odd ways of expressing their mutual affection for each other, but I always thought objectifying your mate was a male thing? Like when males assign pet names to a woman’s body parts. But I guess I shouldn’t be surprised: Solo always did seem to have more testosterone pumping through her veins than her sister Beyonce — though they both have bass in their voices and excessive body hair.
Anyway, Solo seems to be happy with “he”. Unfortunately, I don’t see this union lasting very long. A strong relationship requires two mature and responsible adults to make it work. And we already know that Solo is neither mature nor responsible.
