When the devastating 7.0 earthquake struck Haiti nearly five years ago Beyoncé quickly became a face for change. She was officially named the face of the CFDA’s limited-edition “Fashion for Haiti” T-shirt and, in collaboration with Teespring, launched the BeyGood T-shirt which successfully raised millions of dollars for those affected by the tragedy. Beyoncé has released a new video telling the story of BeyGood, celebrating fans’ support and highlighting the impact of the first Teespring campaign.
Safaree Samuels Girlfriend Zashia: Santiago Breaks Silence On Romance
Well now, she has spoken out on their high profile romance and his former flame, Nicki.
She revealed the two sparked a connection when Samuels made an appearance on MTV 2’s improv comedy series Wild N Out. But what she didn’t connect was the fact that he was Nicki’s infamous ex.
The two dated for more than 10 years before going their separate ways a few months ago.
“I didn’t realize who he was when I gave him my information. I didn’t know he was such in the public eye. I don’t follow pop culture as much as people would believe,” she told VLAD TV Monday. “I listen to country music, 99.9 is my station is pop culture isn’t really what I’m into. That’s how we hooked up and we love each other’s personalities and we grew in that.”
While Samuels and Nicki called it quits months ago, they still have random moments where they will go back and forth on Twitter. In their latest round, they both accused one another of trying to stay in contact.
She said she’s completely unbothered by it all and so is Samuels. She also spoke on Nicki’s new romance with Meek.
“It’s their relationship. I hope they’re happy just like I hope people wish that on our relationship. I really have no say on it, I haven’t examined anyone else’s relationship besides my own.”
As far as the backlash and Nicki comparisons she has received since getting thrust into the spotlight, Santiago, who is a model and makeup artist, said she and Samuels take it with a grain of salt.
“There’s a lot of bashing, everybody has their own opinions and everyone isn’t always going to be on my side and I get that but we’ve been handling it pretty well. It hasn’t been bad fo rme. There’s been a lot of positivity on top of that…so we’re okay with it.”
She also said she thinks being compared to Nicki is a good thing, but made it clear she is her own individual.
