When it comes to celeb relationships, maybe I've been living under a rock or whatever, but I had NO idea Gigi Hadid and Taylor Swift both dated Joe Jonas, or that Ryan Reynolds was married to Scarlett Johansson before his literally perfect marriage to Blake Lively. So I guess the main point here is that I need to be keeping up with my celeb gossip a little more closely...or at least keeping up with some general celebrity dating history. And it seems that once you start looking deeper and deeper into your favorite celebrities' dating histories, you realize Hollywood is a big pool of super beautiful people who only date each other.
Needless to say, keeping up with all of these relationships can get confusing. Even just a simple google search of "Kim Kardashian West's love life" can be overwhelming, with pages and pages and pages of info about everyone she's dated. Obviously, along the way, you get fascinated by one of the guys she reportedly dated, and you start reading about him, only to get stuck sifting through more pages of irrelevant information about this dude Kim Kardashian may or may not have boinked once.
Well, a new creation from DrEd makes this rabbit hole a lot easier to fall down, as it allows us to use an interactive map to actually look up the dating histories of all our favorite celebrities. Just to go along with the example I provided for you, I started off my own search on the map with Kim Kardashian West.
After searching her name in the search bar, I was presented with this interactive map showing me all the dudes she's reportedly dated or been linked to in the past, along with a comprehensive list of all their names on the side bar.
From there, I was hooked, so I just HAD to click on Kanye West to see his dating history, too. I mean, come on, like you weren't wondering who pulled more between the two?
And of course, the rabbit hole got deeper and deeper. I HAD to check out Amber Rose's dating history, too, because, well, now, I'm in this endless spiral, and also, I love her.
Now, here's where it starts to get crazy, because if you compare Amber Rose's history to Kim K's, you'll see that not only is Kanye on both of their lists, but Nick Cannon and Reggie Bush are as well. The Hollywood dating world is definitely a small one, it seems. But anyway, back to Amber's list. I know we're all staring at Drake's name there. So of course, HOW CAN I NOT LOOK UP WHO HE'S ALLEGEDLY BEEN BOINKING?
I mean, of all those ladies, all I want to know is which one was trying to fight with him at the Cheesecake Factory.
One name on Drake's list did surprise me a little bit: Taraji P. Henson. Honestly, I'm not obsessed with Drake. I like his music and all, but as a person, I just don't think he's that cool. Contrastingly, I LOVE Taraji P. Henson. Empire is one of my favorite TV shows of all time. And Taraji's character, Cookie, is amazing. She's a baller. She's hilarious. She's everything I want to be and probably never will be. The point is, Taraji P. Henson consistently plays the roles of strong, bad*ss females, and I freaking love her for it. But I also don't understand why she may have allegedly boinked Drake, so I had to check out her dating history, too, to see if there were any other surprises on the list.
Anyway, you guys get the picture of how fun this interactive map is. It's a whole new, innovative way to procrastinate! And you'll get some nice dinner table conversations out of it! You can bet your bottom dollar I'm bringing up Taraji P. Henson dating Drake at my dinner table tonight.
But be careful, as the minute you log on to this thing, you may get stuck in a rabbit hole of your favorite celebrities' dating histories for a long, long time, only to find out that literally everyone has essentially dated each other and then some. Proceed here with caution.
