'LHHATL': Justin asks Spice to 'tone down' on raunchy acts, fans tell him to 'step back'
'Spice baby girl, the red flags is out!! Run sis!! He knew what type of artist you were before he got with you. To tell you to 'tone it down' is bullsh*t,' wrote a fan
Spice aka Grace Hamilton, the star of 'Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta' has always been pretty focused on her career. Fans watched the Queen of Dancehall's determination to expand her career in the US market after taking the Jamaican music scene by storm.
After a lot of hard work and struggles, Spice's dancehall music career is slowly but steadily beginning to take off in America. With her career on the right track, Spice was finally ready to focus on her personal life. In the midst of the global pandemic, our dancehall queen managed to find herself a man- Justin Budd. Just like her career, Spice's pandemic relationship too was going very well with the couple expressing their love for each other at every given opportunity on their social media handles. However, with the pandemic situation improving and the world gradually opening up, the couple's relationship is beginning to hit some roadblocks.
The recently aired episode of 'LHHATL' featured Spice asking her video producer boyfriend Justin about his thoughts on their relationship post-pandemic. She tells him that soon she would have to return to work and begin her touring and performances, so she wanted to know how he felt about it all. Justin tells her that he loves her music and is proud of her career, however, he isn't entirely comfortable with Spice's raunchy performances that involve twerking, grinding, and wining. He tells her that he feels 'some kind of way' watching her be so raunchy in the public and asks her to 'tone it down'.
Spice was totally taken aback on hearing her boyfriend's thoughts about her performances. She tries pointing out to him that dancehall music is all the high-energy performances and that she can't tone it down as she gives her all to her fans on the stage. Justin still seemed very unhappy about it, which left both Spice and the show's fans questioning the relationship.
Several fans took to their Twitter to slam Justin for even suggesting Spice to 'tone down'. A fan tweeted, "Mr. Justin better chill or go behind the camera and record spice twerkin’ on her fans #LHHATL." Another fan wrote, "CRAZY!! How this dude become territorial...when he haven't even put a ring on it?? Dancehall dances are high energy and lots of closeness..that's part of Spice's artistry. Dude need to step back on that #LHHATL." "Spice is THE QUEEN OF DANCEHALL and you’re trying to tell her tone it down, Dude she’s been doing this BEFORE YOU please go that way with the BS #LHHATL," echoed a fan.
