Why It's So Damn Hard to Break Up!

Falling in love is easy, staying love is hard and breaking up is nearly impossible. With the release of Usher's "Climax," the R&B superstar not only seems to be making a follow up to his Confessions hit, "Throwback," but once again proving that breaking up is the hardest part in any relationship.

As the song closes, Usher belts out: "You say it’s better if we love each other separately. I just need you one more time. I can't get what we had out of my mind. Where are you now when I need you around? I'm on my knees, but it seems we are going nowhere fast."

If you've ever been in a relationship then you can attest that going back, either for emotional reasons or physical reasons, is all a part of the process of breaking up. We asked Vixen readers on Twitter for the top three reasons why they keep going back to their old relationships. Take a look at the answers and see the hottest young couples that can't seem to break up!

1. First Love [email protected]

Your first love is always the hardest to get over. Usually responsible for being your first "everything," it's difficult to walk away from that person and see them move on with someone else.

Angela Simmons and Bow Wow continually get linked to one another after being two years post committment. Be it in Miami on the beach, in a club at one another's birthday parties or rumors of engagements, Bow Wow has seemingly made his claim on the young socialite, entrepreneur and member of hip-hop's royal family.
2. Sex [email protected]

If you know what you're going to get it good, then sometimes calling on the ex is the best option during times of need.

As the two continue to make headlines for spending hours in green rooms at the GRAMMY awards, rumored to be spending time in the studio recording the extended version of Rihanna's "Birthday Cake" and a never-ending series of subliminal tweets, Chris Brown and Rihanna take the lead in couples of who can't seem to get over one another. We're certain love isn't the only thing that has the two running back.
3.  Convenience & Comfortability - @_Ka1 and @SidityAKA

Meeting new people and learning someone new is more difficult with age. It's often easier to take someone back with their known flaws than to meet someone and learn to work with new ones.

According to recent reports, the recently divorced Kardashian wasted no time linking up with ex-beau.  Whether or not it's true (we aren't certain), it's certainly best for Kim Kardashian to recycle in her own backyard versus acquiring another name to add to her list of suitors.

Kelly Rowland Says Her Highly-Anticipated Project Is "Definitely Coming"

Six years ago, Kelly Rowland released her fourth studio album titled Talk a Good Game. The project boasted hit singles like "Kisses Down Low" and the transparent "Dirty Laundry." Now, the Houston native is preparing to release a project that'll surely satisfy fans' patient earbuds.

In an interview with Billboard, Rowland shared her hopes for putting out a new body of work and the pressure that she's encountered since she's been in the studio. "This is by far the longest, most pressure-filled process ever, only because I know what it's supposed to be and I have been so hard on myself. I know it," she said. "And it's the first time I've said it out loud. I've been extremely hard on myself. But it's definitely coming, and I'm more so excited about this project than anything else."

The news follows the recent release of Rowland's "Kelly" track, which was met with critical acclaim in November 2018. In addition to preparing the release of new music, the "Motivation" singer discussed fans' wish for a Destiny's Child reunion. The rumors have been fueled by social media photographs of Rowland with either Beyonce or Michelle or all three, especially during Beyonce's past Coachella performance. But Rowland assures readers that it's not what they think.

"It's so funny. I guess every time people see us together, they just see music but I see sisterhood, and that's what we are and that's what me, her, Michelle [Williams] and Solange and I are. People see us all together, they immediately think music. I'm like, no. Just family." As Rowland previously mentioned Solange, she hopes to one day work with her again.

"I'm a huge fan," she said. "I love her writing and how detailed and particular she is. I always wanted to figure out how the heck she has so many different layers of harmonies when she is constructing these vocals, and it's so complex but simple. It's genius. It's the genius in her genius mind that she has in there." One of the last times the pair collaborated was on Rowland's "Simply Deep" track off her debut solo album of the same name. Solange also penned a few songs off the same project. Fast forward to 2016, and Rowland's vocals were featured on Solange's iconic A Seat at the Table.

Teyana Taylor To Pay Homage To Ballroom Culture In "WTP" Video

Teyana Taylor aims to keep her hot streak of innovative videos coming thanks to this recent announcement. Taking to Instagram on Wednesday (Jan. 9), the "Gonna Love Me" singer will show adoration to ballroom culture in the visual for "WTP."

Directed by Gregory "Beef" Jones, The Aunties Inc., and Taylor herself, the Harlemite takes viewers on her journey to the expression-filled space where she hopes to rack up 10s across the board from a group of judges. The premise of the video also seems to follow a mockumentary format airing on a fictional network named FEMTV. Alongside Taylor, other men and women get ready to display their talents and confidence on the ballroom floor.

"WTP" is featured on the mother-of-one's sophomore album, K.T.S.E., which was released in June 2018. While the rollout's controversy didn't entirely muddle the excitement behind the project's debut, Taylor said she was sold on the idea that her album would be treated as the biggest out of G.O.O.D. Music's string of releases last year.

"I didn't know ahead of time that there wouldn't be any singles or visuals. But I knew that it was going to be the five-album thing," she said during a HOT 97 interview. "[Kanye] wanted [my album] to be last, he wanted mine to be the biggest. That's the way they sauced it up. I was sold."

The video will debut on Jan. 19. Check out the teaser below.

Trina Braxton’s Ex-Husband, Gabe Solis, Dies After Battle With Cancer

Gabe Solis, the ex-husband of Trina Braxton, lost his battle with cancer, Thursday (Dec. 20),  TMZ reports. He was 43.

Solis passed away at his home in Texas, surrounded by friends and family, according to the outlet. No official details have been released about his passing.

Solis had reportedly been keeping his cancer battle private. His death came as a shock to his loved ones. On Friday (Dec. 21), Braxton seemingly mourned the loss of her ex-husband with a cryptic Instagram meme reading, “I need a hug..E bottle of wine.”

The former couple tied the knot in 2003, and appeared together on previous seasons of WEtv’s Braxton Family Values. Despite finalizing their divorce in 2015, Braxton and Solis confronted lingering issues from their marriage during an episode of Iyanla: Fix My Life, earlier in the year.

Braxton has since moved on to a new relationship, but remained friends with Solis.
