Teyana Taylor covers VIBE Vixen’s debut Fashion Issue were she dishes on lessons learned from her G.O.O.D. Music mate 2 Chainz. Becoming a role model, and addressing the non virgin and lesbian rumors.
Teyana on what she’s learned from 2 Chainz:
He’s the closest to my situation. Being signed to another great person before coming to Def Jam, the situation is not really working in your favor and now look. He’s showing me that everything is about timing, so don’t ever think that your time is not going to come. My season is coming up soon.
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.

Chris Brown and Drake have been sued for $16 million by the owners of the bar they had their smack-down fight over Rihanna in on the night of June 14, 2012.
NBA basketball player Tony Parker is also suing, but has filed his lawsuit against the bar for being injured by glass from the rapper and singer’s fight, according to the New York Daily News.
The New York club W.i.P. lost its liquor license because of the glass-hurling fight that was caught on video.
Neighboring bar Greenhouse shares space, owners and a liquor license with the other bar, and it has also lost its ability to serve alcohol.
Owners of the Greenhouse trademark claimed in court papers that the fight has cost them a $4 million licensing deal that they had recently brokered.
While reports were initially unclear regarding both the alleged Illuminati New World Order Satanists’ involvement, the lawsuit alleges they were directly involved.
The papers, filed in Manhattan Supreme Court, state the musicians “began to fight violently” and “each ordered his security personnel, bodyguards, friends and entourage to join the fight.”
Lana Del Rey‘s look may be luxurious now, but the sultry songstress is no newbie to leading a lavish lifestyle. Born Elizabeth Woolridge Grant in New York City, she’s the daughter of the domain investor Rob Grant. She was also raised in Lake Placid, the vacation land of the rich and famous.
Drake’s street cred has been called into question when it was revealed he grew up in Toronto’s wealthy Forest Hill neighborhood from the sixth grade on. By age 15, he was a child star on the Canadian TV show “Degrassi: The Next Generation.” The rapper has downplayed the amount of cash the show earned him
Lady Gaga’s made her own millions, but before she became Mother Monster, Stefani Germanotta was living the high life in her childhood apartment on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. Her father, an internet entrepreneur, sent her to private school at Convent of the Sacred Heart on the ritzy Upper East Side.
Kid Rock may look like he grew up on the wrong side of the tracks, but don’t be fooled. The singer’s surname says it all; Robert James Ritchie’s dad was a successful car dealer who owned several dealerships. His family also owned a six-acre apple orchard and horses!
The Strokes frontman Julien Casablancas comes from a long line of wealthy forefathers. He was born in New York City to Spanish-American business mogul John Casablancas, the founder of Elite Model Management. His mother, Jeanette Christiansen, was a former model and earned the title of Miss Denmark, and his paternal grandfather was a well-known textile giant.
