‘Tis the season to get engaged!

The engagement news keeps coming. Yesterday, we reported that Janet Jackson accepted the marriage proposal of her billionaire boyfriend, Wissam Al Mana, and today, we hear Brandy and music executive Ryan Press are headed down the aisle.

Brandy has yet to confirm the news, but Us Weekly reports: “They are thrilled and happy and Brandy feels this is so right.”

The 33 year-old “Put It Down” singer has not been shy about gushing over her love. She recently released a song “How High” which features the passionate lyrics: “Like a rib, I’m one within you. We’re unbreakable, inseparable.”

The star, who has a 10-year-old daughter, Sy’rai, also told Sister2Sister Magazine: “I keep hearing about a ring. People keep calling me, hinting to me about it, but I don’t know. I’m going to be patient and let it happen and just let it be. . . I guess it will happen when it’s the right time.”

Around the same time, the BET’s “The Game” star spoke about their union to Us Weekly: “He just loves me for who I am. I don’t have to camouflage anything for him or put on a mask. I can completely be myself and he loves me so much and I love him just the way he is, too.”

Congratulations to the happy couple!

    An actual Black couple gets engaged and it’s crickets around here? Lol And we all know that if it was an IR couple people would be stepping over each other to comment.

  • Val

    And congrats to Brandy. Let’s hope this marriage is not a pretend marriage like her first one. Lol.

  • MySister’sKeeper

    @Val, why search for conflict? From your other posts, I believe you are socially and historically conscious enough to understand the difference in response.

    Congratulations Brandy!! Black love is where it’s at.

  • binks

    Congrats! She finally got her wished.

  • ShaRita

    Well, after reading 20 articles of Brandy passively aggressively begging this dude to propose to her in various media outlets, it kinda kills the excitement. Not to mention her fake marriage (to cover up being pregnant and unmarried) and her other engagement that never led to marriage. Just makes this nothing to be excited about. But I’m happy if they’re happy.

    Plus, the angle of the Ealy article was the loss of a “heartthrob” which, unfortunately, turned into an unnecessary attack on IR relationships.

  • Kim

    She looks happy. Congrats!

  • lol

    a black couple gets engaged and people stay saying something negative?
    some things never change


  • Ms. Information

  • Melissa

    Congrats to Brandy!

  • Joy

    Big Ups to Brandy & Ryan!! Brandy’s parents have been in a life long relationship (which is rare these days). I wish the same for Brandy.

  • Joy

    Mysister Because unfortunately some people thrive on negativity, and look for the worse scenario in everything

    Because for some people, black couples are mundane. This is why the media always spotlight inter racial couples because they produce the most interest. Even though Brandy’s relationship is the norm, the media is interested in what can grabs people’s attention.

    But congrats to Brandy. Now we can look forward to a reality show about her getting ready to be married.

  • Skye (box)

    Awe so happy for her. Seems like everyone is feeling the marriage fever for the holidays.

  • African Mami

    hello ladies!

  • Pearlsclutched

    But boo you’re married to a Chinese dude.

  • African Mami

    this was directed to Val and Miss Info.

  • African Mami

    @ Pearlsclutched,

    *DEAD*!! Stop the madness, lmao!!

  • Kacey

    Well, she begged hard enough for it.

  • Kristi

    Congrats Brandy! Great news : )

  • ChillyRoad


    But boo I aint married to no Chinese dude. I said Asian. In the UK Asian means from South Asia i.e. India Pakistan Bangledesh not the far east.

    Some of you guys in here are just too stupid. Leave the hood for once in your life.

  • Val

    @DownSouth Transplant

    Lol. I know, right. This time I’m going to need to see an actual marriage certificate after that ‘play’ marriage she had the first time.

  • Overseas_Honeybee

    @Pseudonym Yep pretty much. Gotta keep it 100. Thought the same thing. Wishing them a healthy and long marriage though. We live and we learn. Congrats B-Rocka!
