Newlyweds Bobbi Kristina Brown and Nick Gordon are sharing their thoughts about the negative view some people have of their relationship.
"It put a fire in us," Nick tells Extra. "The critics can say whatever they want to say...it's like we have a force field and that s--t's just bouncing off of it."
"It lit a fire up under our ass and we went haulin', says Bobbi, who earlier this month announced on Twitter that she and Nick had secretly wed.
The pair first announced their engagement in October 2012, breaking the news in a promo for their short-lived reality show The Houstons: On Our Own. One month later, Nick tweeted it was over, tweeting that they were "not engaged or dating," but "just close like we have always been."
