During the peak of his career, Reverend Run, was in the decadent decade of the 1980’s. Times have changed and he is perplexed by the prospect of his daughter not dating after her ex-fiancé and baby father of her child was murdered.  Angela Simmons energy has been zeroed in on being a  single mother after her fiance, Sutton Tennyson, was gunned down in front of his home back in November 2018, but her father wants her to move on with her life.

Angela Simmons has been in the rumour mill concerning relationships with former teenage rappers, Bow Wow and Romeo Miller, but Angela has revealed that she is a single woman with little options growing up as a celebrity daughter. “I’m in an industry that’s very like, small, kind of,” Angela told her dad on Growing Up Hip Hop. After agreeing with her, Angela continued, “Your options are limited and I’m always working. Where am I going to meet anyone?”  She also adds that she has pressure being the daughter of a preacher stating “There’s a certain way to walk with Christ but like, my way is not always your way.”

Rev Run suggested to Angela that she could go on a dating app, but she said she already tried it. The app she used was specifically for industry professionals and invite-only. Still, she couldn’t find anyone worthy of her attention. “Is it really that crazy?” Run asked. “I think the world has changed. Back when I was in, well, 10th, 11th, 12th grade, it was never a pretty girl that would think about, ‘I have to go find a guy.'”

“A girl like that would never be on an app, so I just don’t know what happened between when I was young—” Run continued before Angela interrupted and said, “Instagram!” She tried explaining why DMs are the downfall of dating, but Run didn’t understand. “That should fix it,” he said. “Someone should be able to get in your DMs.”

Angela complained that “serial dating” is also a problem because people date more than one person at a time without commitment. “I’ve got [my son] on my mind and anyone who comes around me has to be triple amazing for him,” Angela said. “He’s impressionable.” Check out the clip below.
