MAGAZINE FAB: Teyana Taylor Gets TOMBOY Sexy For Rolling Out Cover, TALKS Boyfriend Iman Shumpert & Dealing With Negativity

 photo teyrolling1.jpg

Teyana Taylor is serving up some tomboy sexy for the newest issue of Rolling Out magazine. Peep her cover and find out what how she’s handling negative critics on social media, her relationship with NBA baller Iman Shumpert and how she is the uber perfectionist inside…...

Since her first major U.S. tour got cut short (after August Alsina fell ill), Teyana Taylor is still steadily working hard at making her mark on the music scene.

The “Maybe” singer is gearing up to release her debut album titled VII (Nov. 4th –which initially was slated to drop Oct. 21st), releasing new visuals and tracks from the upcoming LP. And in between studio sessions, media appearances and filming for a new BET scripted series “The Start Up”, G.O.O.D. Music’s first lady is putting her model skills to work.

The Harlem native is gracing the cover of Rolling Out’s latest weekly issue. And she’s serving up a bit of tomboy chic while topless in a pair of black panties, ripped denim shorts and a flower printed coat.

In the cover story, Tey opened up about how she’s dealing with social media trolls, being happy in her relationship with NY Knicks player Iman Shumpert and being a perfectionist, much like her mentors Pharrell and Kanye West.

Below are the highlights:

On dealing with negativity:
“I don’t block that s--- out; it hurts,” Taylor says.
“But then you also have the brighter side of things. It’s a give and take. If you can take compliments, then you should be able to take when people have negative things to say. It’s very hurtful, but I don’t block it out. It hurts, then I speak about it, and then it’s over. You’ll read one negative comment out of 99 good comments, but it will be that one negative comment that will really have you pissed off. But once you relax a little bit and calm down and think about the good, then it makes you feel better and you go about your day.”

On dating NBA player Iman Shumpert:
“I’m happy,” she admits about her relationship with Shumpert. “I’m not on the phone too much and I’m not really on social media now. When you have a peace of mind, which is your companion, you listen to your man so when he’s telling you to calm down, then eventually you let it go. But when you’re in your own space and you feel independent with your feelings, then it’s just like, ‘OK, I’m going to do what I want to do.’ But when you have your peace of mind, it takes your mind off all the negativity and all the people that [are] trying to bother you.”

On Pharrell and Kanye West:
“Pharrell and Kanye are perfectionists and that’s all they surround themselves with and that’s all they know,” she shares. “When you’re around that, it automatically rubs off on you. So everything I do has to be perfect, it can’t be half-a--ed. You either gotta do it or not do it at all. So, definitely perfection is the most important thing.”

Tamar Braxton Gets EMOTIONAL Over Vitiligo Insecurity + Tiny & Shekinah Get Attached At The Hip On “The Real”

 photo threal1.jpg

The ladies on “The Real” kept it 100 as they talked about their insecurities and extra baggage they carry around with them on a daily basis. Tamar Braxton got super emotional when she opened up about suffering from the skin disease vitiligo. Also, reality stars Tiny & Shekinah hit up the show to play a game of “Attached At The Hip.” Check it inside…

In today's episode, the ladies of “The Real” opened up and allowed themselves to be vulnerable as they discussed their personal insecurities and struggles that they carry internally. Pull out the tissues!

During an emotional chat sesh, the usually outspoken “Tamar & Vince” star Tamar Braxton let her guard down and revealed she suffers from a skin disease called vitiligo. She's spoken about it before, but many accused of her of giving a false excuse simply so sh could bleach her skin.  Tamar could barely talk from being so choked up. She revealed she doesn’t work with a lot of makeup artists due to her disease and at one point in time, she use to sit on her hands to try and hide them because the discoloration was so bad.

She candidly said,

It's so hard for me to talk about my insecurities so I always talk about "Oh I'm beat, I'm done." And, you know, I talk about myself and I say it out loud so I can start to believe it. And I just carry that with me only because I have a skin disease called vitiligo and it's so crazy that nobody believes it. Oh my God. And the reason why I won't work with a whole bunch of makeup artists is because I don't want other people to see it. And so I used to sit on my hands, 'cause it's really bad on my hands, and it's so funny that people think I bleach my skin because bleaching won't take all my pigment. It's so crazy. And I tan to try to hide it. And it's so funny because I, just backstage, just today, and that's why I'm so emotional, because I'm talking about it. Just today, somebody I haven't seen in a while was like, "Oh my God, I was thinking… who is that white woman over there in the white? Oh that's Tamar." And I find myself always defending that I am who I am. And so for me, I just decided, you know what Tamar? You are going to accept yourself for who you are because either you're going to like me for me or you're not going to like me for me.
 

The other co-hosts also got candid on their insecurities.

Tamera Mowry Housley revealed her struggle of comparing herself to her twin sister, “Instant Mom” star Tia Mowry Hardrict. She said she’s tired of being called the “cute, goofy” sister while Tia was always regarded as sexy. She spilled,

Umm, well… I'm a twin, duh. Umm and a lot of the times, being a twin, you can have… God, I'm about to cry. I don't want to cry. Dang it. Well, okay. I didn't want to cry. I haven't cried at all in a very long time and that was something I didn't want to do. It does. I've never actually told you guys this. Um, being a twin people compare and they compare a lot, by default. It's not their fault but sometimes, you know, they see two people and they either say, "Oh… She's the sexy one or she's the cute one. She's the goofy one, she's the sassy one." Well, I was known as the goofy cute one. And I used to read our fan mail all the time and that's what I used to get all the time when I was 16 years old and I kept it. Are y'all crying now too, Jesus. Well I kept it. So going to college, I carried that. I was like "Oh, the goofy cute one. I'm not the sexy one." And guys would literally go, "Oh, you're so goofy, you're so goofy!" And I always thought it was a negative term cause all I wanted to be was sexy. I didn't want to just be cute. So now, to this day, honestly, when people say, "Oh you're so cute," there's a part of me that goes "ugh." I'm 36 years old, I'm a grown woman, and I have to own that I can be sexy and not only that… Honestly, I wake up every single day and I question that and it doesn't matter. My husband can be like, "Oh my God, you look so sexy," and I hate that I always say, "Really? Really?" So I'm going to work through that…
 

Loni Love dished on a time when a professor made her feel inferior to another woman because of her lack of wearing high-end fashions, while Jeannie Mai disclosed she felt she had to get eye surgery popular in the Asian culture to make it in television after a family member told her she would need to have cosmetic surgery on her eyes.  And Adrienne Bailon admitted she equates relationships to being successful.
