Thursday Ranting: Celebrity Daddy Douchebaggery
Terius “The Dream” Nash an R&B/pop singer-songwriter & record producer is the husband of Christina Milian an occasional R&B/pop singer (I guess. I don't know. What kind of music was "Dip it Low"?) and father to three month old Violet.
Recently he was asked about his role as a father and shared responsibilities and responded with the following douchebaggery:
It amuses me how he even considers caring for his infant daughter "helping out". I thought that was a parental obligation. Sadly I think a lot of people in general (deadbeats come in all parental forms sadly) have this attitude.
Why bother having a child if at any time you are inconvenienced you will happily hand off your responsibilities to someone else? If you do not enjoy parenting why bother fathering a child?
Let me know whether you agree with me or not on this one but even at my most exhausted there is no one in the world I would want taking care of my child other than myself or my husband. 95% of the time. Of course everyone needs an occasional break but this dude is pushing it. 2 or 3 times? That's it? Come on bro.
Sadly I know all too well that people like this exist and all I can do is wag my old lady finger at them and be thankful that I have a responsible caring co-parent. This is not some sort of breaking news it's just that I was taken aback with the ease with which he admitted his deadbeatyness. I guess I'll give him props for that. He is a bum but at least he owns it.
The Dream is a douche.
