Model, actor, and singer Tyrese Gibson is mostly known for his racy R&B music and his role in the "Fast and Furious" franchise, but you might want to add motivational speaker to that list. In a recent Facebook post, the crooner discussed fame, self worth and the importance of falling in "love with Jesus."
Gibson has certainly made the most of social media by frequently posting comments and videos about his views on happenings in popular culture. His very passionate post often get criticized for being inspirational yet vulgar because of his use of foul language.
In his latest Facebook post the singer shared openly about what he has learned throughout his career in the past decade.
"Fame is one of the biggest unspoken addictions – over the years I've learned and discovered that people will do damn near anything to get it..... Validation is a men's and women's silent killer," he wrote.
Gibson first emerged on the R&B scene in the late '90s and since then has become a household name mononymously known as Tyrese. He made his acting debut alongside Taraji P. Henson in the 2001 film "Baby Boy".
"The mind state of most famous people I know [is] If you ain't checkin for me, I ain't checkin for me.. If you don't love me, I don't love me... If you don't see the Value' in me, I will no longer see the value in myself.... If you think I'm irrelevant, I'm irrelevant," noted the California native on what he has observed in his years in Hollywood. "This is so dangerous and so addictive it has lead to a lot of suicides."
The Grammy nominated singer has often talked of his faith during his many motivational rants on social media, but this time he clearly stated that he believes Jesus is the remedy to cure the insistent desire for relevance, fame and fortune.
The actor said, "When you love yourself deep within. When you fall in love with Jesus and you're completely submerged in Christ your heart and soul is fulfilled independent of what's in your bank account and where you are on the charts."
Gibson also shares that his company, Voltron Entertainment, is capitalizing on the reach of social media and although he has accomplished much, he assured his followers that he will keep aiming higher.
"I am apart of the biggest movie in the world and beyond being excited and honored to be apart of this #FastFamily I still see and view myself the same. Believe it or not.... In my mind I'm just warming up." He continued, "There's so much more to do and so much more to accomplish."
He ended his lengthy post by advising others to walk in obedience to their God-given assignment. Although having a rough upbringing the actor has often said in video posts that he did not allow his setbacks to hold him back.
"I will continue to #Boldly walk into the unfamiliar, deal with rejection and doors slamming in my face from people not seeing my visions, climb invisible stairs and learn to dream with your eyes open. And more importantly even if others don't understand or support you – Be obedient to all God given assignments and visions move on them and you will receive huge life changing blessings and reward on the other side of obedience. Trust me I know," he concluded.
