Raven-Symoné and AzMarie Are Basically The Cutest Thing Ever

Long before Raven-Symone actually came out or even kinda-almost came out, rumors that she was dating America’s Next Top Model contestant AzMarie Livingston were fully on blast.

rumor has it

were we ever so young

But nobody knew for sure — and, more importantly, we couldn’t write about it on the internet, which was very hard on our hearts. Luckily Ludacris was looking out for us and invited the twosome to his party, fittingly entitled “LudaDay Weekend Celebrity Pool Party,” on September 2nd in Atlanta, Georgia.

luda-day

sounds like fun!

At aforementioned party, the two women were photographed looking like girlfriends for sure. Not just “girlfriends,” but actually the cutest girlfriends ever of all time.

Here’s the deal with AzMarie, according to the bio I wrote for the Autostraddle Alternative Hot 100Ashley Marie Livingston grew up in Minneapolis with her mother and her gay father, who were divorced but “best friends.”  Growing up, Livingston was teased for being a tomboy. On a trip to Los Angeles with her Dad at age nine, she got interested in modeling, and would eventually drop out after three semesters at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater to move to Los Angeles and pursue her dreams. From 2009 to 2011, she worked as a runway model in LA and New York, appearing on BET’s Rip the Runway and in London Fashion Week. She appeared in the film Precious and The Jacksons: A Family Dynasty. But it’s likely you know AZMarie from her 2012 stint on America’s Next Top Model: British Invasion, and her subsequent role on the homolicious teevee show DTLA.

is actually thinking “that’s so gayven” at this exact moment

I don’t need to tell you about Raven-Symone though, you know Raven. She’s a total critter. I hope she does a super-good edgy indie lesbian film one day.

it is actually impossible for anybody to be any cuter than i am at this moment

it is absolutely impossible for anybody to be any cuter than i am at this moment

Not since Lindsay Lohan and Samantha Ronson have we been gifted with a young celebrity couple where both girls are celebrities and one is a super famous former child star who paints her fingernails dark colors!!

thanks ludacris

Ludacris approves of the situation

This is a bright new dawn for all of lesbiankind!

  1. Raven is awesome and she and AZMarie are a cute couple. Also,’Not since Lindsay Lohan and Samantha Ronson have we been gifted with a young celebrity couple where both girls are celebrities and one is a super famous former child star who paints her fingernails dark colors!!’ She and Lindsay used to be roommates. Ha.

  2. So I maybe or maybe not spent the last hour looking at the adorableness all over the internet only to come “home” to autostraddle and see this post waiting for me. Way to continue to know my soul, autostraddle. Please keep it up!

    • EDIT: “So I maybe or maybe not spent the last hour looking at THEIR adorableness all over the internet only to….”

      Damn. I got so excited I to double check for typos.

      That’s So Gayven, guys! That’s So Gayven!. And her girlfriend is HOT!

      I ship this so hard.

  3. My co-worker will update me on the latest news on Kimye, Katie Holmes, Kate Middleton, (lots of K celebrities), and “hot men with dark hair and blue eyes.”

    I saw these photos of Raven and AzMarie on the internets two days ago and I held out my smartphone like Pensatucky with a cross, and basically said, “BAM! Check out the latest news on my side of the Kinsey scale.”

    Raven and her boo look so lovely together. I hope they keep each other’s hearts warm for many days to come.

    • “I saw these photos of Raven and AzMarie on the internets two days ago and I held out my smartphone like Pensatucky with a cross, and basically said, ‘BAM! Check out the latest news on my side of the Kinsey scale.'”

      This right here deserves a comment award

    • Lol YES! This deserves a comment award! I second the motion! At least the part about pennsetuckys cross and the Kinsey scale!

    • I can’t believe I know this but I’m pretty sure those are from Forever 21! My coworker just bought the exact same ones!

      Wow, I never know fashion stuff. I feel almost like Lizz! *swoons*

      • they are from Forever 21! i actually looked them up last night and was gonna put a link to them in the post, maybe i will do that right now

  4. Raven is also a really good painter as well. I believe she is going to art school right now. I remember her showing off her artwork on The View once and she posted a few pieces on her Instagram as well.

    Raven and AzMarie are totally cute together. I’m glad she’s finally more out and going to events together and everything. We need more out celeb couples out there.

  5. This seriously soothes my aching soul. I may start getting over Lilo & Sam’s break-up as these two are waaaaaay cuter.

  6. Portia and Ellen, you can get some rest now. There’s a new lesbian couple for me to obsess about

  7. I had a total crush on Azmarie and she was the best thing about that awful ANTM season. AZMARIE + RAVEN = my heart feeling really happy because LOOK AT THEM. Also, I want Raven’s glasses.

  8. “And one is a super famous former child star who paints her fingernails dark colors!!!” It’s the little things, Riese, that make me love you.

  9. I love Raven – She is funny in interviews and I admire how down-to-earth and well-adjusted she always seems. When I found out she plays for our team AND knowing what this means because she is a woman of colour, that just made my month!
