Cardi B and Offset Split Reminds Us All That Love Ain’t What It Used to Be. Here’s How.

Published

Ain’t it strange how two people could be so madly in love with each other in one year and in a matter of months, they’ve completely switched, turned off –  matter of fact, that love has died and there’s no hope of salvaging it? Such is the state of Cardi B and Offset’s relationship, according to the Bronx born rapper.

Cardi B, whose real name is Belcalis Almanzar, took to Instagram overnight, where she let out her secret, revealing that she and her hubby of just one year, have been enduring problems in their relationship that could not be worked out. She admitted they had tried. The famous rap couple welcomed their daughter, Kulture, in July this year.

The news has set off a firestorm of comments across social media platforms, many arguing that the couple had rushed into marriage. They secretly wed last year. What this situation draws into focus however, is the fact that marriage and love just isn’t what it used to be.

5  Ways Love Has Changed Over the Years: 

1. Women are less pursued. In the olden days, men with interest would pursue the woman they had their eyes set on. Today, women, being the outspoken and independent creatures they are, are pursuing men even before the men have a chance.

 

2. Chivalry is dead. Yes it’s cliche, but it’s true. When was the last time a man opened a door for you, lady? Because women have been settling in a sense, for whatever is handed down to them, there’s no denying that men no longer feel they need to work as hard to woo the opposite sex. With the common sentiment that there is now a deficit in men to fulfill the needs of the billions of women world over, men are getting through with their pursuits, faster than the wink of an eye. Are we wrong? 

 

3. Couples have less time together than they once did. The fact that both men and women are now in the workforce, leaves very little time to truly communicate and understand each other. Relationships today are in most cases, built on physical and material attraction, than emotional. Many people often make the decision to enter common law relationships or get married, without truly understanding the people they’re committing to. 

 

Cardi B and Offset have lived their lives openly on social media. They’ve been open to criticism and applause alike.

4. Social Media, in recent time, has made intimacy and sexual relations tremendously transparent and crass. While many would agree that today’s world functions more openly than it once did, because of social media, most fail to discuss the effect that this open book method of living, has had on marriages and relationships. Today, everyone knows what everyone is doing, all the time. Privacy is a thing of the past. True love, while beautiful to share and boast about, is difficult to contain and keep alive, with the world viewing and commenting on. Truth is, Cardi B and Offset lived their short relationship in full public view- near naked and all. Did it work out for them? 

 

5. Women have become overly independent. If a man is told, “I don’t need you. I can do sh*t all by myself,” and worse yet if he sees, you can do it by yourself ladies, chances are, he’ll hold his corner and allow you to do it all by yourself. This leaves room for many consequences in a relationship. The over-independence of many women in today’s society has had a ripple effect on relationships and the way men show love. Once upon a time, men wooed women with expensive jewelry and weekend trips. In today’s world, the Independent woman purchases her own damn jewelry and gets on her private jet to wherever in the world she chooses to go. How’s that working out? Truth is, men need to feel needed. If they aren’t needed, where’s the true love going to come from?

Here’s How Machel Montano Made us Gush Last Weekend.

Published

While the untamable frenzy in the Caribbean last weekend centered around Jamaican dancehall and reggae icon, Buju Banton’s first post-release concert, there was a lot to take in amid the excitement. Machel Montano’s ongoing love affair stuck out like a sore thumb in our minds here at Ebuzztt, and in case you haven’t realized just how smitten the Soca taipan truly is, we’re here to prove it to you!

Buju’s Long Road to Freedom concert in Jamaica on Saturday brought the best of the best in Caribbean entertainment to the Jamaica National Stadium. From Tarrus Riley to Dj Khaled, Romain Virgo, Aidonia and Beenie Man among others, Caribbean celebs showed out and Trinidad and Tobago’s Machel Montano was among them.

In the thick of the massive crowd, Machel Montano made a very public appearance with the woman he’s been linked to for some time. Reneé Butcher, a pretty low key beauty, whose simple yet charming demeanor leaves us quite intrigued, was seen wrapped in Montano’s arms, swaying to the music of the Grammy award winning artist, both, she and Montano undeniably in their comfort zone with each other.

Machel Montano, possibly in wind down mode after a very visible Carnival season in Trinidad and Tobago, once collaborated with Buju Banton. The Soca artist had remixed his single, “Make Love” with the “Rasta Got Soul” hit maker. His relationship with Butcher, while informerly confirmed, has seen them on an apparent life journey with a lot of spiritual soul searching together.

During Carnival 2019 in T&T, Butcher’s presence was seen and felt. Photos showed the couple together on Valentine’s Day, coupled up affectionately. Butcher was a part of the Carnival Mas excitement as well, taking to the streets with Montano, Ashanti and the countless other celebrities partaking in the bliss of the season. What’s not to love?

Now, here are 5 reasons we love seeing this couple together:

  • Their energy as a couple is humble, grounded and easy.
  • She’s cute!
  • She has seemingly affected Machel in a positive way. His energy as an individual seems different since she became publicly announced.
  • Love WINS! At 44 years of age, we love the idea of seeing the King of Soca settle with someone truly suited to him, after all, how much longer will he subject himself to those touchy- feely females on the entertainment circuit! The time has come to just let real love WIN!

He cried tears, broke down like we’d never seen him, in the aftermath of a phenomenal carnival 2019 season that even resulted in a major Carnival title- the Groovy Soca Monarch crown. Marvin Davis grew up in the Sea Lots community. He’s the perfect example of rags to riches. Swappi’s also testimony that anyone who believes, can achieve. In the aftermath of Carnival 2019, Swappi quietly reflected in a chat with Ebuzztt, tearing up over the fact that he had almost given up.

Swappi recalls a trying few years, prior to 2019.

“I’m kind of emotional right now, because I actually didn’t see this coming,” he said to us. He had been at home, laid back, after securing the win on Fantastic Friday. Swappi could not contain his emotions. He admitted that he’d been extremely frustrated prior to 2019. “I’m laying here and thinking of how frustrating and confusing it was for me last year and the year before that and the year before that. I remember going to the grocery and picking up stuff, putting it in my trolley, and getting to the cash register and having to put it all back because all I had was $20,” he said with a level of humility and sadness that could not be faked. Swappi sighed emotionally at the memory, adding, “It was really challenging, very challenging to know that this is all that I do, music…. I just want to thank all the DJs, promoters, program directors, everyone, for giving me a second chance,” he said. He expressed gratitude to all who had played a part this past Carnival season, in essentially allowing him to see the light at the end of a very dark tunnel.
