#VMAs2017: Singer, Teyana Taylor puts abs on display
…Pays homage to Janet Jackson in black and white ensemble
By Sewe Ishola,
For recording artist and actress, Teyana Taylor, a walk down the VMAs 2017 red carpet was for winning and slaying with her rock solid body.
During the pre-show, the actress, singer, and dancer accepted the Moon Person for Best Choreography award for Kanye West’s “Fade” video—which premiered last year and brought the spotlight on the rising actress-dancer thanks to her steamy Flashdance–inspired performance.
For the annual event, Taylor’s white crop top, black pants and short bob — accessorized with her insane abs — resembled the outfit that Jackson wore at the 1995 MTV VMAs, during which the iconic pop star claimed a statue for her memorable “Scream” dance video.
This is not the first time Taylor has shown her love for the Rhythm Nation queen. In 2012, she recreated Janet’s iconic topless Rolling Stone cover from 1993.
