Teyana Taylor is giving us all body goals! In an interview with SELF Magazine, the singer/dancer opens up about self-love and dealing with insecurities. We know what you guys are thinking…. With a body like that, what could she possibly be self conscious about?
After the birth of her beautiful daughter Iman Jr., she reveals that she struggled with the flaws all the time, the same flaws we obsess over. But over time, she has learned to embrace it all.
You’re gonna have a little sag down there, and there’s nothing wrong with a little sag. I think today, we forget what real beauty is…I appreciate it because this sag is from me birthing and feeding my child, my seed that is a part of me. I appreciate every stretch mark, every sag. One boob is bigger than the other…but it is what it is. I love my body and I love the place that I’m in. And I think dance and happiness and movement and family and love is what makes me love my body.”
Teyana reminds folks to stop judging one another and comparing.
“I just want everybody to know that we’re all human, we all have to give birth, there’s always that time of the month, we all get our hearts broken, we all find love again,” she says. “We all have the same insecurities. Whether it’s losing weight or gaining weight—we all feel like ‘oh, my eyebrows look crazy today!’ or ‘my hair is thinning!’ or whatever it is. But we have to remember that nothing is impossible.”
When she’s having a bad she finds inspiration in her baby girl. Parenthood has made her more emotional and mature.
“Everything and anything is possible if you put your mind to it, and I get that from my daughter. Nothing is impossible to her.”
