Call us crazy, but it feels like Future is still mighty stuck on the past.
Everybody’s favorite trap gawd is the new cover boy for Billboard, and the “March Madness” rapper really, really wants you to know that life without Ciara is peachy. So peachy, he can’t help but rehash their 3-year-old breakup. Future says he and his ex-fiancee were doomed from the jump because he’s never been a fan of being told what to do. And absolutely no one can stand between him and his beloved party drugs.
According to Billboard’s pages, the relationship turned a little funky once Ciara started asking him to cut back on his recreational drug use – namely with marijuana and codeine – to better synch with her image. “They had me going the cornball route!” he snickers.
Future’s engagement to Ciara came to a screeching hault in 2014, muddied with cheating allegations, child support disputes and Twitter spats. Still, Future says he’s content with the fate of their relationship because it ultimately wasn’t “real.”
Meanwhile, Ciara looks real broken up about the whole ordeal.
But Future really wants you to know he’s in a much better place:
“I’m happy with life now. I’m happy with life, period, even with the end of a relationship being…I’m just not going to settle for anything, you know? Even in my life now, I know I can be a better person. I ain’t giving up on myself, so if you give up on me, I ain’t got nothing else to say for you. Because if you give up on something that’s real, it wasn’t real to you.”
Happy with life? Gee, that reminds of us of someone else in a really similar position.
And just in case you think Future is going in on Ciara on his latest HNDRXX album, don’t be so sure. The trap artist admits to having undercover sexual trysts with a few other celebrity women…we just don’t know who they are. “What the people don’t understand is, I been kicking it with superstars when it comes to females for a minute — on the low-low with nobody don’t know-know.”
Still it seems lyrics like the ones from his song “My Collection” are pretty direct shots at Cici. He claims his ex flame had a few down low celebrity affairs of her own before him:
She told me she was an angel / she f**cked two rappers and three singers/ she got a couple athletes on speed dial/ I’m tryna get the case dismissed before I see trial.
Ciara, again, looking very distraught by this.
It seems ol’ Mr. Hendrix missed the fact that Ciara is happily married to NFL’s Russell Wilson and is expecting a baby this spring. In comparison, she’s been pretty mum on the relationship with her child’s father as of late. So what’s stopping Future from living his best stripper and pharmaceutical-filled life? Is he really as over her as he says? Sound off in the comments.
