Teyana Taylor Is Janet's #WCW, Kanye's Muse + Beyoncé's Mini Choreographer


The amazing and multi talented Teyana Taylor dropped by The Angie Martinez show to promote her upcoming reality show 'Teyana & Iman' on VH1 and while in the studio she was fully basking in her glory of being Janet Jackson's "Woman Crush Wednesday" + being only the 14th person Janet follows.

While speaking about Janet for the first time, Teyana says that she gave Janet a merch t-shirt with her own face on it and told Janet she could wear it bed or rehearsal.  "You're already shocked that you're in front of them" she says. "I was acting talking about none of the real stuff. I was acting so weird. You just do stupid stuff."

They also got into Teyana's career not being that typical journey and how she's had all these opportunities to work with major artists but she's still hasn't put out her album. "It's definitely frustrating, but I've always held my head. A lot of what kept me sane was occupying my time and my mom."

The good news is that album is 90% done and Kanye West produced it. "It's Ralph Lauren collar popped Kanye. I can't wait for you to hear it...once you hear a song you can almost see the video in your head. It's gonna be OD lit...when it's to throw the cookouts I will have the music out."

Teyana also tells us all about how she felt the difference in energy when Kanye's 'Fade' video premiered at the Video Music Awards. "Literally my life/career changed overnight...I haven't had a day off" she says. 

For sure Angie had to get into Teyana working as a choreographer and how she ended up Linking up with Beyoncé to teach her how to do the "Chicken Noodle Soup" dance for her 'Ring The Alarm' video. "Every time she sees me she gives me good advice" she says about whenever she sees Bey.

While discussing her upcoming VH1 reality show, Teyana says that you might as well have a show if you're on social media since you're already kind of living your life in the public eye. In the show we will get to see the whole album process and she will show us more of her who she is and how she is balancing her life as a mommy and a wife.

They also talk about Teyana's Harlem nail salon at which she sometimes comes out and paints client's nails, her close relationship with friend Chris Brown who will be the only feature in the album + more.

'Teyana & Iman' premieres on VH1 on March 26th at 9PM make to catch it.
