Rappers may be notorious for having groupies, but Big Sean is not about that life. In a recent interview with Philly’s Hot 107.9, the G.O.O.D. rapper gushes about new girlfriend Naya Rivera. After revealing that the two first connected on Twitter, he playfully said that he was dating his “celebrity crush.”
“I like everything about her. I like her family. […] She’s into hip hop. She likes rap, she likes all sorts of music. She be knowing rap…I got my celebrity crush, Naya.”
When asked about the challenges of being in a monogamous relationship, Sean- who previously dated his high school sweetheart- says it’s not “hard at all” because the two trust each other, despite not being together for a long time.
“I was talking to her [the other day] and I was like, ‘ Do you trust me?’ and she was like ‘Yeah, I trust you. I know you ain’t stupid.’ She’s cool though. Away from all of that other stuff too and when you vibe with someone as a person and they relieve stress from you and it’s fun to be around them, that’s the kind of person you need to be around.”
The Detroit native will address his relationship with ex-girlfriend Ashley on his highly anticipated sophomore album Hall of Fame. Also featuring Miguel, the track offers insight on their life before fame and the break-up that soon followed.
