When I think of Karrueche Tran, side chick is not one of the words that immediately comes to mind. However, the folks over at VH1 seem to have placed the longtime girlfriend of troubled R&B crooner Chris Brown into the side chick file. Their site recently posted a feature highlighting “10 Notorious Hip Hop Side Chicks” and somehow, Karrueche made the cut along with Karrine Steffans, Lil’ Kim and Tameka Fuller.
As to be expected, the sweet-faced stylist was seemingly hurt and disturbed by the feature.
“When no one understands you.. they misinterpret you.. judge you.. label you.. this is embarrassing to see, but I can do nothing but laugh because at the end of the day you can say whatever you want about me,” she wrote in an Instagram post.
“Label me however you please.. Your words do not define who I am. I’m happy with myself.. Flaws..wrong choices..mistakes and all and that’s all that matters. I usually don’t speak up on shit like this but whatever. I have family that has to see shit like this. I don’t even think we’re all on the same page as to what a “side chick” really is.. Either way .”
While the Chris Brown/Rihanna/Karrueche Tran love triangle was certainly a notable one, I definitely don’t think that situation qualifies her as a side chick. Or does it?
What do you think? Is the term “side chick” being used a little loosely here?
