Singer August Alsina, in true scorned lover fashion, released his revenge song, Entanglements late Saturday night.
The R&B singer, who made headlines recently for exposing his relationship with actress and talk show host, Jada Pinkett Smith, dropped the single, which is clearly directed as his ex.
Pinkett Smith, in a recent Red Table Talk interview explained that she was involved in an “entanglement” with Alsina while separated from her superstar husband, Will Smith.
Alsina’s scorned lover’s anthem features rapper Rick Ross on the near four-minute track.
I don’t understand what Alsina is trying to prove. According to Pinkett Smith, he ended the relationship, presumably because she wasn’t willing to leave her husband.
Several weeks ago, he did an interview with radio host, Angela Yee, where he spoke about their relationship. That move forced the Smiths to respond publicly.
Some Things Should Remain Private
Alsina has broken relationship/entanglement code. He and Pinkett Smith had a private affair. Now, because he is still bitter about the break-up, he is disrespecting her publicly. It’s embarrassing. And quite frankly, it’s not manly.
The Smiths have made it clear that they are prepared to fix their marriage and remain in their union until the wheels fall off. So, why interfere with that.
This controversy was just beginning to die down and now this.
I hope the Smiths don’t respond this time. They have addressed the affair, now it’s time to move on.
And speaking of moving on, it’s time for Alsina to speak to a therapist – someone who can help him get past the hurt he is feeling. Because lashing out like this is not healthy.
Pinkett Smith was not just his lover. She was his friend and helped him significantly with his health challenges by giving him access to top doctors. So, he is hurting her on a personal level.
This revenge song is a poor business decision. The Smiths are a powerful couple in Hollywood who are deeply connected. Surely, their friends and business associates will not do business with Alsina moving forward.
I’m also surprised Ross took part in this song. Not all money is good money. The fallout just isn’t worth it.
