Beyonce, Rihanna, Kanye and Drake may have been some of the big shots to look out for at the MTV VMAs, but there was this one person that stole the show – Teyana Taylor.
Kanye West judiciously used the privilege he got from MTV at the Video Music Awards on Sunday night to give a rather lengthy speech. In addition, he used the opportunity to drop the visuals to “Fade” from his latest album, The Life of Pablo.
“I came here to present my new video,” he began, “but before I do that, I’ma talk,” he said.
Kanye’s lengthy speech touched a lot of areas including gun violence in Chicago, his ex-girlfriend Amber Rose, his beef with Taylor Swift. Eventually, he unveiled the music video, which is exclusively streaming on Tidal.
Meanwhile, the star of the video, Teyana Taylor literally stole the thunder from Kanye. Her fiery performance set the internet ablaze. One could say she danced her ass off in the sweaty Flashdance-esque dance routine in a gym.
The climax of the video was towards the end, when Taylor’s fiancé, Cleveland Cavaliers star Iman Shumpert, joins her for an enchanting shower scene. Subsequently, the couple poses with their baby daughter Iman and a flock of sheep, while Taylor turns into a big cat.
Taylor became a trending topic on Twitter and thanked fans online for their words of adoration.
“Good morning,” she wrote, “and thank you all so much for all the love.”
Naturally, one glance at Taylor’s gorgeous body will make you want to hit the gym and plunge into a diet plan. In fact, even Kim Kardashian West gushed at her amazing physique. Oh, and she just had a baby not too long ago.
However, believe it or not, Taylor’s crazy dope body was not cooked up in the gym.
“Dancing is my workout. I just dance. I almost feel like dance is so underrated in the fitness world.”
Therefore, you don’t have to deny yourself that yummy burger because you want a body like hers. She doesn’t diet and that’s it.
