R&B recording artist August Alsina took to Instagram to share a message with his 6.7 million followers. The “I Luv This Sh*t” performer’s IG post comes after Will Smith infamously slapped Chris Rock at the 94th Academy Awards.
August Alsina became tabloid fodder in 2020 when news broke about his previous romantic liaison with Will Smith’s wife, Jada Pinkett Smith. The 29-year-old New Orleans native even released a song titled “Entanglements” which was inspired by Jada’s description of their extramarital relationship.
This week, Alsina wrote on Instagram:
choose peace; trusting that life’s intricate puzzle pieces 🧩 are all forming together for the greater good and mastering of the seasonally sometime chaotic nature of your life’s art piece that’s being formed and painted by birthing life to your internal masterpiece; grown through external chaos-metamorphosing alchemy, dark turned 2 light and beauty within. Then turned Master
