“I used to put myself to sleep dreaming of my wedding“ Tracee Ellis Ross speaks on the societal pressures of marriage

Tracee Ellis Ross wants the world to know that finding true happiness doesn’t come from being in a relationship or having kids, it comes from within.

American actress and singer, Tracee Ellis Ross, popularly known for her role as Dr Rainbow ‘Bow’ Johnson on Comedy TV series Black-ish speaks on her plans for the future and the possibility of getting married in new interview with Marie Claire.

When asked if she longed to have a traditional life, with a husband and kids, she responded with;

“Our society spoon-feeds it to you. I used to put myself to sleep dreaming of my wedding. And I would still love all of that, but what am I going to do, just sit around waiting? Shut up. I’ve got so many things to do.”

In 2020, the ‘Black-ish’ star also spoke about being single in an interview on Good Morning America.

“People misinterpret being happily single as not wanting to be in a relationship, of course I want to be in a relationship, but what am I going to do? Spend all the time that I’m not [in one] moping around? No. I’m going to live my life to the fullest and I’m going to be happy right here, where I am.”

At 48, the ‘Girlfriends’ star has continued to break grounds career-wise. She had her first leading role in the movie The High Note last year and signed a multi-year, multi platform production deal with ABC. She’s currently the executive producer of Black-ish spin off Mixed-ish and owns a hair brand, Pattern Beauty, dedicated to women with curly, coily and tight textured hair.

When speaking on her career and her plans in the future, she mentioned venturing into Stand-up comedy and possibly having a music album. She said;

“It gets me all wild and scared, but right now I want to dive into the singing from Tracee. That’s uncharted territory. I did it as a character [in The High Note]. Now I’m like, What if I tried that?” What if?
