Big Sean Says Girlfriend Naya Rivera ‘Thinks It’s Dope’ That He Writes Songs About His Ex

July 8, 2013  |  

Some were surprised by news of rapper Big Sean and actress Naya Rivera’s coupledom, especially since just one year ago the G.O.O.D. Music artist revealed that although he split from his longtime girlfriend Ashley, they were “still in each other’s lives” and “probably will get back together” because they’re “just figuring it out.” While Sean and Ashley’s reunion may not be happening anytime soon, the rapper still appears to have his ex on the brain as he continues to put out music inspired by their relationship. But what does his new lady think of all of this? Well, according to Sean, she isn’t fazed by it. Check out a few hightlights from his interview with Philly 107.9 below.

On meeting his girlfriend Naya Rivera:

“Someone told me that she thought I was cute, and I thought she was fine and [so] I was like lets make this happen. The first thing that happened was she followed me on twitter and I followed her back and I was like ‘Whats up?’ and she was like ‘Whats up?”

“I like everything about her. I like her family. […] She’s into hip hop. She likes rap, she likes all sorts of music. She be knowing rap.”

On whether or not being faithful is a challenge:

“It hasn’t been hard at all. I was talking to her [the other day] and I was like, ‘ Do you trust me?’ and she was like ‘Yeah, I trust you. I know you ain’t stupid.’ She’s cool though. Away from all of that other stuff too and when you vibe with someone as a person and they relieve stress from you and it’s fun to be around them, that’s the kind of person you need to be around.”

On putting out music about his ex:

“My old girlfriend, I met her when I was 15 and I started dating her when I was 18. […] So you know when you’re young and you go through [things] and you start growing up, you learn a few things.”

“The song about Ashley with Miguel on it, is strictly about her. [Beware] is kinda like I got some inspiration from a couple situations and just made a story with it.”

On if he’s still in love with Ashley: 

“No, but I still love her though. I got love for her deeply. She’s my homie.”

 On how Naya feels about him writing songs inspired by Ashley: 

“My new girlfriend thinks it’s dope. She does her own thing. she’s professional, she writes music and she’s on that show Glee, so she understands. She’s got songs about her old relationship.”
