Teyana Taylor Makes History As The First Black Woman To Be Named ‘Sexiest Woman Alive’
Teyana Taylor continues to break the mold!
The 30-year-old entertainer was named the “Sexiest Woman Alive” by Maxim Magazine — the first Black woman to receive the title for the publication.
“Somebody pinch me !!!! Maxim Hot 100 to be named the ‘Sexiest Woman Alive’ by literally living in the skin I’m in,” said Taylor in an Instagram post.
“WOW…Stepping back in front of the lens has been a journey of self-reflection and self-confidence…Living up to [the] name and title of this shoot wholeheartedly made me nervous,” she continued.

She showed up to the photoshoot in sweatpants and a beanie after dropping her daughter off at school. The photographer advised her not to get glammed up.
“I was like, ‘SO LET ME UNDERSTAND THIS…I WILL BE THE SEXIEST Woman Alive IN SWEATS AND A SKULLY?,’” she shared. “As confused as I was, my heart also melted…Embrace and love yourselves for who & what you are because only the purest heart shines through. Thank you @maximmag. I am truly honored to have graced the cover.”
Last year the “Gonna Love Me” singer announced her retirement from music. She felt underappreciated as an artist.
“I’m retiring this chapter of my story with the comfort that I can depart with peace of mind seeing that all the hard work & passion put was indeed loved & supported somewhere in the world!,” wrote the “Coming 2 America” actress via Instagram. “To all my supporters from day 1 & all my new ones I love you and I thank you for everything.”
Although she won’t be making music, fans can expect to see Taylor back on their television screens soon.
According to REVOLT, Taylor and her hubby Iman Shumpert will return to reality television in “We Got Love Iman & Teyana,” a series set to premiere on the E! Network. The show will highlight their day-to-day lives much like their former show on VH1, “Teyana & Iman.”
It looks like Teyana Taylor won’t be stopped anytime soon!
