her research determined that nearly 4,000 minors, mostly girls, were married in New Jersey from 1995 to 2012, including 178 girls under 15.
I adore this woman and all of her music. “I Couldn’t Love You More” always, ALWAYS gets me in my feels. It’s so damn pure. And “War of the Hearts” is one of the most sensual songs I’ve ever heard and it’s about a breakup.
Sade is a goddess. She’s my cotemporary (I was in college when she hit the scene in the early 80's), but I still want to be like her when I grow up.
It’s no just you, this has happened to me a few times. A good chunk of the article never shows up.
She performed in Toronto a few years ago and it was the best concert experience I’ve ever had. She has such grace, beauty, and her voice...I can’t even begin to describe how invigorating it was to hear her voice live. Every move she made seemed so effortless, almost like she floats when she moves. Growing up I wanted…
Sweet baby Jesus - these women are BLESSED.
I loved Sade since I was a little kid and I was blown away how damn entertaining her Lovers Live concert film was.
Well said! Most of the articles I read accentuate the British side of Helen and by virtue underplay the African side.
“And even now, you may own a framed version of her 2001 tour poster. (Oh, is that just me?)“
Going deep on the symbolism in a twerk video with The Black Snob?
I had this conversation a while back, I said Sade is probably the ONLY huge pop star EVER not to have done any adverts for something at some point! And I challenged my friend to name another. Even Michael Jackson, with the biggest selling album of all time did Pepsi ads. Every icon of the 80s did ads. And every pop…
I am a Gen-Xer as well and she possessed me in 5th grade with the ‘Diamond Life’ LP. I’ve been hooked ever since. ‘King of Sorrow’ is one of my top 5 fav jams, period. She is the baddest....
I saw her in Pittsburgh years ago,nd in addition to looking amazing (of course) I want to give her a shout out for holding an AFFORDABLE concert;those tickets were $35! I actually was going to buy two,but when I found that out,I bought three and took a friend. Great show,great woman.
Other Corrections to that original comment: Her father did not leave her when she a toddler. The Adu family lived in Nigeria, and, due to marital problems, her mother took a flight to the UK with the kids (when Sade was 4) and never returned apparently without the father’s knowledge or permission. Sade has said in…
Hypnotic is pretty much the perfect word.
Beautiful words, beautiful voice, beautiful woman. HBD!
I thought they were painted like tigers because of Cardi’s line “this pussy’s wild, throw it in a cage,” since tigers are essentially wild cats, aka “wild pussies.” But I’ll admit, that might be just me thinking too hard!
Sade is sheer perfection. “Kiss of Life” and “Stronger than Pride” are my touchstones.
TThe can perform whatever religious ceremony they want; it just won’t be considered a marriage for purposes of the state, for example, in determining whether statutory rape took place.
And permission from a judge. I don’t know if venue shopping is allowed on this, but good luck finding one who won’t have you institutionalized if you try to get permission. It’s a de-facto ban.
