We can’t wait until November 19. That’s the night that Marrying The Game premieres, when we’ll finally get to see the softer side of rapper The Game. The family man side. The cuddling with his fiancee side. The wedding planning side. Until that time comes though, Game and his lady, Tiffney Cambridge, have been opening up about their relationship and offering some of their best advice for how to make it work in the long run, and they’re featured in this month’s Juicy Magazine He Said/She Said column. This month, the question is all about how to handle a lovers’ spat. After the jump, read what each of them have to say on the issue of dealing with your heated moments in public and in private.
The Game says:
Those conversations should be kept private, but sometimes you can’t help where you are. I want to be able to say what I want, but I don’t want to be at the restaurant acting a fool! In this camera phone age, people will send a video of you to TMZ and as they are transferring the clip, the check is going into their bank account. I miss being [a non-celebrity] so much. I’m definitely not normal. Normal people can go anywhere. They’ve got it good. In general, but especially in your relationship, you can’t let outside people get to you. Me and my fiancé [Tiffney] are not on the same page all the time when it comes to waiting until we get home to have a private disagreement. We are different and we don’t always see eye to eye. Sometimes [we agree], but it depends on how many Bloody Marys or martinis she’s had. [Laughs] But, it’s all about the fact that I love her and she loves me, as you grow together you need to accept each other or you’ll be without each other. It’s as simple as that.
In the eight years I’ve known Jayceon, the man most people know as Game, we’ve certainly had our share of good times and bad, and disagreements come along with that. My nature is to keep our differences not only in the privacy of our home, but away from our children. We have strong personalities and I’m not a woman who can easily bite her tongue. He does not mind letting anybody and everybody know exactly what’s on his mind. Jay has led a very public life for a while now, but this is all new to me. The only audience that I have ever wanted attention from are the 36 beautiful children in my classroom, so imagine how difficult it can be to find the right balance between remaining civil in public—and letting Jayceon know exactly what’s on my mind. It’s difficult, if not impossible, to deal with your honest feelings and resolve the issue when an audience is involved, some conversations are best left for the bedroom. Sometimes, I’m ready to explode, but then I think about my kids and the example I want to set for them.
