Teyana Taylor covers VIBE Vixen’s debut Fashion Issue were she dishes on lessons learned from her G.O.O.D. Music homie 2 Chainz, being a role model and learning to not let lesbian & non-virgin rumors get to her.
Teyana on her relationship with the fellas from G.O.O.D. Music:
All of them play all day, and I love that. With work ,everyone is down to business. It’s good that everyone has a serious side but also a sense of humor. It definitely makes work fun. That’s the good thing about working with the boys. They spoil you. I’m a spoiled brat [laughs].
Teyana on being a role model:
I do think the way I dress and the way I brand myself–I’m very proud of myself that I can inspire young girls. If you have a body, embrace it. You ain’t always got to be sexy. Sometimes less is more. Like less make up is more. If I want to be in Jordans, a half top and shorts then that’s what I’m going to wear. Call me gay, call me what you want to…And now everybody is doing it.
Teyana on being judged by her fashions:
I feel like I’m at a point where I don’t have to do that anymore. Once I got older and matured more, it was still a “damned if you do, damned if you don’t” situation. When I was dressed in my streetwear, I was gay. Then, I do one shoot, show some skin and now I’m not a virgin. I can’t win for losing.
