Angel Haze says her romantic relationship with Alec Baldwin's daughter Ireland is perceived as a friendship by American media outlets.
“Everyone just calls us best friends, best friends for life, like we’re just friends hanging out,” Haze says in an interview with The Independent. “It’s funny. It’s rad in some ways. It sucks in others...There are still certain limitations for women. If we were two guys, it’d be insane, negatively insane with the attention. With us it’s all being very positive, the media are like, ‘Oh they’re so cute, they’re best friends.'
"An interracial gay couple, I mean that’s just weird for America right now," she adds. "We fuck and friends don’t fuck. I have never fucked one of my friends. Once I see you in that way, it doesn’t happen...But we do fuck and it’s crazy and that’s weird to say because I think about it in terms of an audience reading it and them thinking, ‘What the hell?’ But it happens.”
Angel Haze made headlines in December 2013 when she expressed frustration with Universal Republic. The rapper leaked her album due to the frustration and released a letter explaining her gripes with the label.
Universal Republic removed the leaked album soon after it went public.
