to be fair, published an essay criticizing “Stimulated” that noted, “Tyga is justifying — and possibly even glorifying — his illegal relationship with an underage girl” and explained, “There’s a reason why your mom doesn’t want you to date a dude who’s seven years older, especially when you’re still in high school: according to science, mental — and sexual — development matures a whole lot through teenage years.” But this approach didn’t last.
As Lewis talks, Gale chews gum and fiddles with her sunglasses; at one point, she puts them in her mouth.
This past weekend, J and I were talking about, how, every time we go on a date and have a couple drinks (with the intention of being all romantic and having sexy times) it usually backfires.
Our hot plans of getting home with a little buzz and ripping each other's clothes off are ruined by either 1) getting too tipsy and wanting to stay out for more drinks with friends (which is also fun, but not sexy-time-inducing), or 2) come home and either get too sleepy to actually do anything or start getting it on… It started off as a great date night in the making.
Kelly and 15-year-old Aaliyah in 1994; 24-year-old Elvis Presley and 14-year-old Priscilla Presley in 1959; 38-year-old Jerry Seinfeld and 17-year-old Shoshanna Lonstein in 1993) — to the ones that unsettle us when we remember how they began (people tend to forget that Don Johnson started dating Melanie Griffith when he was 22 and she was 14; the late Paul Walker began dating his wife Jasmine Pilchard-Gosnell when he was 33 and she was 16; Wilmer Valderrama dated Mandy Moore, Lindsay Lohan, and Demi Lovato when they were all under the legal age of consent). In 2004, when I was 13, Hilary Duff — then 16 and the star of seems to have taken the approach of not covering a couple at all while one member is under the age of consent — they have noticeably not covered Lily-Rose Depp and Ash Stymest’s relationship, though they have written many stories on Depp’s fashion sense, and adult fawning coverage of the same couple, and other couples with one member under the age of consent.
But there’s some cognitive dissonance when a couple with a large age gap (like Tyga and Jenner) is criticized or not mentioned at all while the younger member is 16 or 17, but as soon as the younger member turns 18, the couple is all of a sudden portrayed as #relationshipgoals.
