I remember hearing about a classmate who once attended a hip hop concert, hovered backstage, and eventually made her way into one of the rappers’ rooms. Years later after I moved to D.C., someone told me maybe I’d luck up and meet a Washington Wizard and be set for life.
Surely she had me twisted.
“I’m nobody’s groupie,” I replied.
You know, the woman who shows up at venues where entertainers and athletes congregate with the hope of “earning” an 18-year salary complete with a Louis and Louboutin collection and a Benz as a bonus.
But 23-year-old, Toronto Raptors forward Terrance Ross doesn’t believe groupies exist or actually stake out hotel lobbies and bars or night clubs.
During a Reddit Ask Me Anything session, he says, “That’s a myth…that’s never happened. There’s so much security now.”
I guess no one bypasses security, and everyone really does go to All-Star Weekend for the games after all. And when a Basketball Wife says, “I don’t care if he cheats as long as I don’t find out about it,” it’s all out of true love.
Perhaps things are different in Canada. Or maybe he’s just too young and green to understand some women’s motives.
But what do you think? Do you think groupies and gold-diggers are now extinct?
