Anybody who gets mad at celebrity cougars is just that: mad.
In common parlance, a cougar is an older woman who gets with a younger man. It’s an interesting comment on the mindset of modern culture that an older man who gets with a younger woman is a “player,” a pimp, a mack and keeps his game tight…but when the roles are reversed, the woman is called a wild animal.
There’s no greater example of this than the recent outpour of vitriol against Chris Brown’s newly-discovered baby mama, 31-year-old model Nia Gonzalez. While no one is condoning him cheating on his longtime girlfriend Karreuche Tran (he’s scum for that, in fact), the fact is, at 31, she still looks better than your #WCW who’s ten years younger. (And what, 31 is “cougar” age now?)
Here’s a list of celebrities who prove that real men, no matter what their age, like real women over the little girls who are simply young, dumb, and full of…you know the rest.
