My Comments

Then my mom got up from the dining room table to get comfortable and unpack. I was glad to get my mothers advice. It was a lot to digest so I decided to ponder on her words before I made any decisions on what to tell Trey.

*******

Tonight was the night that me, Paige and Crystal was gonna hang. I was actually a little excited about it. Since being with Trey I’ve been exposed to more clubs than a little bit. The idea of it wasn’t as foreign anymore. I wasn’t a girl who did a whole lot of dancing so once we got there I knew that was not jumping off. I only dance for my baby. The club was packed wall to wall. We couldn’t even find a table. We decided to go get some drinks and find a spot to stand in. We had guys on us immediately like moths to a flame. Crystal and Paige went out on the dance floor with the guys that asked them to dance. I of course was the odd ball and turned my guy down. I was enjoying the music rocking and having my own little party. I wasn’t feeling his interruption.

female “Excuse me but are you the girl in the photos with Trey Songz?”
me playing dumb…“Who?” She spoke a little louder thinking I didn’t hear her.
“The singer Trey Songz…are you that girl in the photos?”
“Oh no that’s not me.”
“I swear she looks just like you.”
“I get that a lot, but I‘m not her.” Then the female walks back with her friends. I was starting to get annoyed already and I just got here. To make matters worst my ex spotted me and was walking over to me.

“Cheating no…the falling out of love…I wouldn’t say falling out of love, but you have your days where you’re not sure if you want to fight or just throw in the towel because of situations that may arise….but then your father will do some small gesture that means so much and it will remind me of why I fell in love with him in the first place.”

“I’m just not sure if I will be able to get use to all of this…I mean it’s been so chaotic these past three years mom and he’s really just getting started. You know after that whole ordeal with El how I shy away from the spotlight and hate people getting in my business.”

“I know and I can’t stand him for making you go through that but sweetheart you need to remember one thing, if you’re not happy how can you be happy with someone else. This has to be right for you too. You have your future to think about…your hopes and dreams…and that needs to co-exist with whomever you decide to share your life with. Trey is making his dream come true and these are the sacrifices that he’s willing to make because it’s what he wants. You need to figure out if you’re willing to make the same ones without losing who you are in the process.”

“Ugh…this is so hard…”

“Shanell do you really love Trey?”

“Of course I do…that’s what makes this so hard…it’s not my love that’s in question…it‘s the lifestyle that I have my doubts about.”

“Baby if you love him stay true to yourself first and then be honest with him about it. If you can’t deal with his lifestyle then you need to love him enough to let him go now. I know your heart doesn‘t feel like it can do that, but the one thing I‘ve learned is there‘s no stopping real love. It may be absent from the eyes but it will always be present in the mind and in the heart. Learned that from your grandmother.”

I was just looking down listening to my moms words playing with my nails.

“I miss nanna.”

“So do I.”

She asked me what Trey thought about it and my moving to LA. We finally did get to touch more on that subject once we got pass the security issues. I told her he was happy for me. He said the sweetest thing, “Baby I don’t care where I hafta travel to see you…ain’t no amount of distance gone stop me from bein where you are.” That made me feel so good knowing he would also sacrifice for me.

My parents did eventually get to meet Trey several years ago. Thank god it was before his fan base was as big as it is now. He keeps too many people around him now, but they like him. It’s weird when I’m watching him on TV perform with my mom in the room. She be steady singing his songs with me. She still think she’s young singing with a hair brush. Her and my auntie are alike in so many ways besides their faces, but my auntie is still way cooler than her. My dad gets along real well with Trey too. He’s actually flown him around from time to time. The two male loves of my life. After I shared the good news I spoke with her about my dilemma.

“Shanell what did you think was going to happen when you starting dating someone pursing a singing career?”
“I didn’t really think that far in advance mom. I mean I mostly thought about our time being an issue because of all the traveling he was gonna have to do…I didn’t really think of my life being on blast along with his.”
“Well sweetie yes…I can see that you didn’t realize the full scope of that type of lifestyle but it is very demanding…definitely in the public eye…time will be spent apart…and people will want what you have and try to tear it apart.”
“Mom how do you and dad do this…I mean I know it’s not exactly the same because the whole world isn’t in your business, but you guys spend a lot of time apart…Do you ever worry about cheating or I don’t know, falling out of love with one another?”

“Well I think this was just an isolated incident. I don’t think they’ll be on me when I move.”
“Shid! You gone be in LA. They real thirsty wit there’s.”
“Trey you know how I value my independence. Plus I don’t want to go into this job with people all in my business wondering why I need security.”
“Look baby…I completely get where you comin from, but I don’t think you understand… we can try our best to keep as much as we can private…but in this business…your business one way or another becomes everyone else’s.”
“Well I don‘t want everyone up in my business…it’s our business.”
“You right! It’s suppose to be our business…but people are always gonna try to find a way to get in it…you gotta just be prepared and learn how to deal with it.”
“Trey I refuse to start my career in LA. going to work with security.”
“What if it happens again…then what?”
“I don’t know…this is becoming too much…the stories about us…paparazzi and now security…I don’t know if I could get use to this Trey.”
“Listen baby…I can’t talk long about this right now…I know this lifestyle is gonna take some gettin use to, but I want us to finish talkin bout this later…I gotta go, but I’ma call you.”
“Ok.”
“Baby…I love you.”
“I love you too.”

Please Return My Call

Shanell

After we spoke again I told Trey that I would think about having security around me but for now I will get my cousin Lebron to be with me…you know, to have a male figure around and another set of eyes at least until I move. The idea of having a stranger following me around and invading my privacy was starting to be a bit much. More realities were starting to set in and I was having my doubts. My mom was home from her tour she just did and I really needed to talk to her. First I shared my good news about the job that I had gotten. She was so happy that I found something that I was going to enjoy doing and was following my dream. She couldn’t wait to tell my dad…I thought it was my good news to share.
