What’ s a studio-dude? A studio-dude is an up-and-coming rapper/singer, producer, or hype-man. I call them studio-dudes because they spend most of their time in the studio preparing for their breakthrough hit. I have zero interest in a studio-dude and as soon as I hear, “I’ve been in the studio,” I immediately retreat! No thank you, I’m not interested, it was nice meeting you, gotta go! I don’t discredit anyone’s career or goals, but I don’t particularly like to date studio-dudes or entertainers. I define an entertainer as a famous rapper, singer, hype-man, producer, professional sports player, club promoter, DJ, and actor. I feel like I missed a few, but you get my point. Any one of these careers are a deal breaker for me. What’s even worse are the men who name-drop. For example, “I’ve been in the studio with DJ Drama and we bout to make it happen.” Really? Name dropping is a huge turn off for me because I don’t care! (Hmm I guess there is a dating don’t in here: Don’t name drop for the sake of proving your status in the industry.) My panties aren’t dropping for that nonsense! I strongly prefer not to date entertainers because of the baggage that follows them. Rumors, paternity tests, fame, travel, fluctuating schedule, arrogance, drama, limited “us” time, and most importantly infidelity. Yes the big ‘c’ word, cheating, is a big reason why I won’t date an entertainer. I understand cheating is not solely limited to entertainers, but the temptations are ten times higher for them.
A woman dating a studio-dude/entertainer must enter the relationship with a preconception that cheating will be an issue. Entertainers are in a career that welcomes money and groupies. Money + Groupies = Trouble Trouble (in my Bernie Mac voice lol). Studio-dudes have their groupies too, who love “hanging out” in the studio or the club. Some women might disagree and think the level of trust with an average Joe, should be the same for a studio-dude/entertainer. That’s a good theory for the mind, but in reality it’s stupid. It’s the groupies you can’t trust, and it’s the power and freedom of the studio dudes/entertainer’s career that allows the opportunity for infidelity. Have you ever seen a groupie in action?!?! OMG! A groupie is the equivalent of a horny dog, and just in case you’ve never seen a horny dog, it humps everything!! An example of this (not the horny dog part) is best described by a clip from VH1’s Basketball Wives. I don’t particularly like the show because it’s annoying that 35+ year old mothers argue about trivial things. (I do like Real Housewives of Atlanta though…go figure, lol.) Anyway here’s the clip of the episode in question (just in case you missed it) and you’ll have a better understanding of why I think infidelity is a preconceived notion when dating an entertainer.
I’m not going to delve too much into the episode, but I thinks it’s clear that Evelyn was and still is a groupie. In Tammi and Kenny Anderson’s (a former NBA player) marriage, Evelyn was the groupie Tammi had to watch out for, and that’s just one. Kenny was to blame as well because he was married to Tammi, but like I said before, cheating comes with the territory. Does that make it right? Of course not, but a woman should not act blind to the reality of the risks. Ironically, Evelyn is now the one who has to watch out for the groupies since her engagement to Chad Ochocinco. (Payback is a bitch! Lol!) The mansion, luxury cars, travel to exotic places, and money is great, but expect that he’s probably also offering that to someone else on the side. And for the studio dudes, expect that he may have a groupie at the studio or expect her name to be on the VIP list at the club. 😀 In the past year alone we’ve heard so many headlines about entertainer’s infidelity, Tiger Woods, Tony Parker, and Tiki Barber to name a few. The entertainment industry welcomes a certain lifestyle I have no interest in being a part of. I think I’ll cut my losses and avoid dating a studio-dude because he might become the next Swizz Beatz or Snoop Dogg, and we all know about their drama-filled relationships.
