Angel Haze Opens Up About "Interracial Gay Relationship" With Ireland Baldwin

Not sure what to make of those rather intimate Instagram pics of Angel Haze and Ireland Baldwin? Allow Haze to spell it out for you.
"An interracial gay couple, I mean that’s just weird for America right now," the 22-year-old rapper told The Independent ahead of her Glastonbury performance this weekend.
"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.”

Got it? Haze, who met Baldwin during New York Fashion Week, also laughs off the way the media has portrayed her relationship with the 18-year-old daughter of Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger.
"I don’t know if there’s like some confirm or deny thing with the way relationships work in the media, but everyone just calls us best friends, best friends for life, like we’re just friends hanging out,” she said. “It’s funny. It’s rad in some ways, it sucks in others.”
Haze also pointed out that the public seems to celebrate two women engaging in kissy photos, so long as it's within the boundaries of friendship and not an actual lesbian relationship.
“There are still certain limitations for women,” she said. “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.’"
Guilty as charged. We stand corrected, ladies. (The Independent)
