August 24, 2016: Ok! The other day we told you about how Jamaican Olympian Usain Bolt was having too much fun in Brazil, right? That he left his 30-year-old girlfriend back in Jamaican while partying with Brazilian girls, even after the Rio Olympic ended Sunday night, right? Well, there’s an explanation for everything. Bolt is now saying it’s ok in Jamaica to have multiple women. He made it clear that the media is jumping to conclusion after they caught him kissing a Brazilian woman at a nightclub in Rio. He gave this statement during an interview with The Telegraph:
“I want to keep it small for now, because I know when it gets out there’s going to be a lot of things to say, and I told her she can’t handle it,” said Bolt. “Because I’ve been through the media. I understand how you guys are.”….“You get famous, there’s so much pressure of girls wanting you. And for you to get married at 21, you have not lived one bit. It’s hard for you to stay with one woman because girls are literally just throwing themselves at you, and then you have the girls that the tabloids encourage pretty much to try to get with you. And that’s unfair to us guys – it’s hard to say no, you know what I mean? So I’ve learnt from you guys.”
Hmm! You see, when you’re famous, girls can have it their way with you.
“That’s the expectation. If you’re famous, you need to have a family – that’s what they need to sell in Britain, I don’t know why. It’s respectability. But I’m not English! I’m Jamaican! We have a totally different culture, so you can’t judge me based on your culture.
Every culture is different. Jamaican culture is different, when you look at women and men having more than one… It’s different.”
“We’re laid-back. We dance, we live our lives, we have our fun. And then when we get older, then it’s time to settle down and have a family. I want to get married because my parents are married. I’ve thought about it, but I know I’m not going to get married before 35, for sure.”
But, don’t they always say people from the Caribbean shares similar culture? We want to know how things are down there in Haiti. Can the Haitian culture relate to the Jamaicans? Let us know what you think!
