Newcomer Stalley, of Maybach Music Group, recently sat down with celebrity gossip blogger Necole Bitchie to discuss dating, heartbreak, and his career. When asked what’s his favorite part of his life right now, he replied “Any girl I want, I can get… If she’s single. I’m not trying to take a married woman.” Necole Bitchie challenged his response and inquired if she should pick out women (at random) and see if he can “get” them. He laughed and responded, “I have to want them though. It’s just the charm. Women understand my story. They fall in love with the charm.” The artist hasn’t released an album yet but seems to already be enjoying the celebrity status Maybach Music Group has given him. The promiscuous lifestyle perpetuated in the hip-hop community is damaging. Being that Stalley identifies himself as a Muslim, a religion that critically condemns premarital sex and accepts polygamy under special guidelines, I’m sure the Muslim community is not pleased with his appetite for women as an unmarried man.
Dr. Boyce Watkins recently wrote this article discussing the celebrity stars who have died from acquirqing HIV/AIDS. I think newcomers entering the entertainment industry should be given an orientation that vividly depicts the lives of those who died from indulging in risky sexual behavior. A pretty face can hold a very ugly secret, as revealed when famed German pop singer, Nadja Benaissa was prosecuted after deliberately engaging in unprotected sex with countless men with an HIV-positive status. She listened as one of her victims expressed testified in court about his daily plights since contracting the disease and his disgust with her for infecting him. I can’t understand why artist and groupies aren’t aware of the huge risk they’re facing when engaging in this behavior. Ignorance is not only bliss, but costly.
Hailing from Ohio, Stalley is best known for his mixtape titled Lincoln Way Nights. His video “Lincoln Way Nights” featuring Rick Ross, was premiered on “106 & Park” in Winter 2011. He has since filmed five additional music videos. His anticipated album is expected to drop this upcoming fall.
