Hip hop superstar Kendrick Lamar likes to keep his relationships private, especially his relationship with his #1 — longtime girlfriend and fiancee Whitney Alford. The gorgeous Alford, a licensed aesthetician, and Lamar just had a baby this summer– their first, a girl — according to Us Weekly.
No doubt the couple is busy with personal matters, but that doesn’t mean politics doesn’t touch them. Kendrick Lamar’s work is political by nature, as he is relentless in addressing stories of inequality in this country. Will Lamar — a vocal Trump opponent in his work — support a 2020 presidential candidate?
A clue might be found in the website for Alford’s beauty business, Beauty Lane. There on the About Us page is an in-depth quote from Democratic presidential candidate Marianne Williamson. In the quote, featured below, Williamson reminds everyone of their own importance and the limitlessness of their own potential. It’s sort of a rise-up anthem, and it jibes with Lamar’s art.
Williamson sure would love it if Lamar used her words too, just as Alford has. Here’s the quote; it’s from her book Return to Love:
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world.” ~Marianne Williamson
