Sometimes you know within a matter of minutes if the person you just met is your soulmate and partner for life. That appears to be the case with these celebrity couples who wasted no time moving from dating to engaged within a matter of months or even days.
Big Sean and Naya Rivera
Rapper Big Sean had a longtime girlfriend back when he signed with Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music label. Even though she was there for much of his success, the couple parted ways in 2013 and soon after that the Detroit rapper was in the arms of another woman. Big Sean met actress Naya Rivera on Twitter first before taking their romance offline and into the real world. After dating for just six months, Sean popped the question this past October.

Ashford and Simpson. Barack and Michelle. Brangelina. It’s one thing to be a powerful entity on your own, but when you find that special someone who’s also a powerhouse in the world of entertainment, conducting business can be even more fruitful. It seems as though 2014 is ushering in a motherlode of celebrity hookups and engagements. Here is our list of celebrity power couples whose relationships inspire us. And we have a few that we anticipate seeing in future business endeavors together.
Love is in the air! This year has been full of celebrity engagements and and we can’t wait to see the lavish weddings that are to come. Some engagements were obvious, while others came out of nowhere. Hopefully they won’t all get married in a secret ceremony and share the details later or not at all. Check out these celebrity weddings we can’t wait for in 2014.
Brandy and Ryan Press
Brandy looks like she’s glowing these days with her music executive fiancée Ryan Press. They met in the music industry and became engaged in December of 2012. Before meeting him she had given up on love, but clearly that has changed. Congrats to the happy couple!
I guess having your own snazzy Christmas card is the new thing for Hollywood couples (even if they don’t have kids). Kobe and Vanessa Bryant have their picture with their daughters, and I know you all have seen the over-the-top Kardashian Christmas card (which doesn’t even give the impression that it’s about the holidays at all). Now, you’ll be happy to know that rapper Big Sean, 25, and his fianceé, Naya Rivera, 26, have their own Christmas card too (or maybe you won’t care…either way, I thought I’d share).
The Glee star and her G.O.O.D. Music rapping honey will be spending their first Christmas together as an engaged couple (and since they started dating in April, it might be their first Christmas together in general), so I guess they wanted to go into it with a bang. The two smiled it up (or in Rivera’s case, smized) for the camera while a portrait of the couple being enamored with one another chilled out on the wall in the background. They’re a cute looking couple, but the airbrushing going on in the official photo is not what’s up. I mean, they made her face look gray when compared to her body.
The couple have shared snaps from photoshoots together before, including that raunchy Terry Richardson shoot they did a few months ago. But this one is classy and colorful. Check out the full Christmas card over at JustJared (or just look down below) and let us know what you think.
Everyone knows Hollywood has a narrow definition of what makes someone a star, that’s why most entertainers end up selling some part of their soul — or at least stepping up their physical appearance — to make it big in Tinseltown. Here’s a look at some of the biggest celebs who changed to get put on.
Kerry Washington has played in tons of movies before her hit role in “Scandal.” However, if it wasn’t for her stepping up her fashion game she may not be as big as she is right now. She recently told Glamour magazine:
“There were a couple of actresses whom I felt were having the upper hand career wise-because they knew how to work that red carpet. I was like, ‘I’m missing a really important tool. So I sort of developed a new character: Red-Carpet Kerry. And I researched her like any other character.”
Famous people do everything bigger and celebrity engagement rings are no exception! Beyonce said “Put a ring on it” and the fellas lined up, with their wallets of course. Engagements are a symbol of love and commitment, but they can be costly, ranging from $70,000 to $5 million if you’re a celebrity. Check out 15 celebs who literally have million dollar homes on their ring fingers.
Future knew what he was doing when he chose a beautiful 15-carat emerald cut diamond ring by Avianne & Co for Ciara. Yes, she had the birthday celebration that many girls dream of. Her man got on one knee in front of everyone to pop the question with a three-stone cut ring made of flawless diamonds with a price tag of $1 million to 1.5 million.
We all knew that Big Sean and Glee star Naya Rivera were madly in love, but we certainly did not suspect that marriage was just around the corner. But apparently, the Detroit rapper realized that he found his good thing and didn’t want to risk letting it get away— so he put a ring on it! The 26-year-old actress’s reps have reportedly confirmed to Just Jared that the love birds are definitely engaged.
If you recall, the couple began their six-month relationship after connecting on Twitter.
“I had followed him and he sent me a little message like, ‘I’m a fan.’ I tweeted that I followed him, I was trying to get his attention,” Naya told Access Hollywood.
“We went to dinner and the rest is history.”
Though we may not have seen the proposal coming, it appears that Naya did. Back in September when asked if she saw marriage and babies in she and Sean’s future, she responded:
Sean has also been pretty vocal about his love for Naya.
“Me and Naya is a great thing. She’s awesome. She takes care of me, man. Let me tell you a story about her. Let me tell you a story about Naya Rivera, aight? My grandma used to make me birthday cakes every year, on my birthday, once a year. My favorite pound cake, grandma’s recipe. She had a stroke 10 years ago and couldn’t make it anymore, right? Naya hit my mom up and got the recipe. Couple parts of the recipe were missing, she filled them in, made this cake from scratch for me. And she surprised me with it one day, man.”
Congrats to the lovely couple!

I don’t know what it is about famous couples today, but they sure like to try and prove to the world that they’re in love with over-the-top and uber-sexual photoshoots. The-Dream and Christina Milian did it (that’s dunzo), Evelyn Lozado and Chad Johnson did it (we know how that ended), and the list goes on and on. But despite all that evidence which would tell any star in their right mind to keep their relationship under wraps, rapper Big Sean and Naya Rivera decided to lose their shirts and their inhibitions for a photoshoot with Terry Richardson. Yes, the same photographer who was able to get Miley Cyrus to flip upside down and twerk that thing for the camera. With Naya in her cut-off top showing major boob and Big Sean sans shirt showing off his juicy pectorals (kidding!), the two definitely let it all hang out. Literally.
Check out more images of the two trying to get you (and his ex Ashley I presume) to take their relationship seriously on the next page…
We’ve all come across some ridiculous commercials that make us laugh, stop and watch, or want to throw the TV out the window. The worst part? We can’t seem to get their annoying taglines or jingles out of our heads. And as much as we hate to admit it, it’s good marketing. Check out some TV’s most annoyingly memorable commercials over the past couple of years.
Despite dropping a cosgining verse on girlfriend Naya Rivera’s diss track aimed towards his exes, Big Sean maintains his love and respect for his ex-girlfriend Ashley. During a recent interview with Necole Bitchie, the 25-year-old rapper discussed parting ways with his longtime sweetheart and finding love in Naya.
On catching heat over his break-up with Ashley:
“A lot of people criticized me or whatever. I’ve known her since I was 16 years old. A lot of the people criticizing me, I wanna ask, ‘Are y’all motherf***ers still with the same person that you was with when you was 15 or 16 years old?’ Me and her grew up. We didn’t always live in the same place and things got hard.”
“She graduated school and didn’t really like LA and she wanted to move to New York. And I’m like, ‘No man, you should be with me.’ Then it was just like, ‘Well, we can make it work long distance.’ For me, it was a little too hard. I feel like that’s just one of the reasons why it didn’t work. I don’t have anything but love for her.
On how he feels about Ashley:
“No matter what, I got love for her and I’m pretty sure she has love for me. That’s always going to be there and that’s why I made sure I kept that song on this album after I did it and after we broke up. She deserves a beautiful song for her because without her, I wouldn’t be where I am period. She deserves 10 songs like that honestly.”
On his track titled, “Ashley:”
“It’s not just a tribute to her. I’m just telling the different stories we had and people will be able to relate to it in their own love lives. Everybody has their… you know, for me, it’s Ashley. “
On messing up during their relationship:
“I messed up a lot. We would just go through things that young people do. I made mistakes, she made mistakes. At least I’m man enough to admit it.”
