Most relationships in Hollywood are clout based just to help the careers of new talent. Several people believe that’s how Saweetie and Quavo’s relationship started as a publicist stunt to boost her career.
On a recent episode of “The Real”, the ladies spoke about this topic in regards to the “Tap In” rapper and Migos member Quavo linking up at the beginning of Saweetie’s career. However, she still managed to stay true to her identity while making a name for herself in the industry.
“I do admit in the beginning it was difficult because as a woman, especially a woman in Hip Hop, they’re always trying to credit a man for a woman’s success, which is why I kind of tip-toed around relationship. And that’s why I gave y’all the answer I gave back in the day. But now I’m just continuing to persevere with success and consistency, the relationship it just is what it is now. We love each other. We support each other. We give each other advice. It’s nice. It’s cute and it’s relationship-y.”
The Bay Area native was named Forbes’ 30 under 30 in music and she’s extremely proud to add this accomplishment to her resume.
“I know I’m a fashion girl, music girl, beauty girl. But before all of that, I’m a business girl. So I feel like it’s the best award I could ever get. When I got the news, I screamed, I dropped my phone, like I won an award. I’m really honored. I’ve been looking at that list since I was 18.”
