Ugh, the media is relentless.
Can't a man just buy his longterm girlfriend a giant diamond for her left ring finger without everyone ASSUMING they're committing to a life of love, understanding and more diamonds? I guess not.
Seriously, folks, if I show up to New York University, walk into class and take an exam does that automatically mean I'm a student there? No. False. It does not.
Nicki Minaj posted a photo of a blinding, new jewel from boyfriend Meek Mill to Instagram on Wednesday with the caption,
Now this is what I'm talking about baby. Lol. Love u.
Comments from fans ranged from “she got engaged” to “plz invite me to the wedding,” and everyone needs to slow the hell down.
If I sneak into the NYU dorms every night, find an empty bed and get a balanced meal on campus the next morning before heading to the mandatory floor meeting, does that automatically mean I'm a resident of campus housing?
Nope. Sorry. It does not.
Sure, Minaj's ring is, undeniably, a tremendous romantic gesture.
This is not the first time a left-hand ring caused the media to speculate on the wedding plans of Mill and Minaj.
In May, after the same rumors swirled, Mill told The FADER,
[Our relationship] is definitely real, but it ain't really time to get married yet… We're still learning each other, feeling each other out.
Exactly. If I go to NYU's spring graduation every year, sit in the stands and walk on stage whenever I please to accept any diploma, does that mean I legitimately have six degrees in varying arts and economic concentrations? No. It really, really does not.
Mill and Minaj need time to work toward marriage like any good couple, and I need to leave now because if I'm late to meet my study group at the Elmer Holmes Bobst Library, the other students are going to tell the professor, and I'll have to do my final project alone.
