For anyone interested in Tyrese‘s opinions on how women ought to conduct themselves in relationships, turns out they’re not so sexually liberated.
The Fate of the Furious star has offered up his thoughts on the sort of actions he sees as women settling during an interview with BET and he didn’t shy away from speaking his mind — however potentially controversial it may be.
“I appreciate all the ladies out there that are still single and they’re holding out. Don’t settle. Don’t settle,” he said. “Because I’m gonna tell you all right now, and this might be harsh, but sluts, skeezers, hoes, tramps and overly aggressive, promiscuous women, they are never without a man because they don’t have no standards. They ready to have sex with any and everything that want to have sex with them. But when you are single and you actually love yourself and you know your value and your self worth, you hold out until God sends you what’s yours.”
Tyrese continued, “So sometimes they be talking mess to women that are single but I have a respect for them because if you’re single and you might say, ‘I’ve been single for a couple years,’ what ever the case may be, you actually holding out because you have your value. You have women that are out here active out in these streets, they going to lunches and dinners every night. Private planes, mega yachts, it’s cracking. They’re never without. However, it comes with a cost, you gonna put a lot of miles on yourself down there, come on.”
The multi-hyphenate’s remarks did receive some negative reactions online, bringing BET to delete a Twitter video and the full Facebook Live video containing his comments. A video with this segment of the interview still lives on the BET website.
