Teyana Taylor Dishes on Chris Brown, G.O.O.D. Music, and Dating Life

Teyana Taylor

Teyana Taylor tackled the tough questions during her visit to Power 105.1’s “The Breakfast Club.” The 21-year-old singer-actress, who was recently released from her contract with Star Trak/Interscope, addressed rumors of signing with Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music, her friendship with Chris Brown, dating life, and upcoming roles in Gang of Roses 2 and The Love Section. Teyana’s free EP The Misunderstanding of Teyana Taylor drops on February 29.

“Now there’s no excuse. It’s grind time. It’s time to put out that music and get focused,” said Teyana. Read highlights and watch the full interview below.

On being a free agent: “I’m in a LeBron kinda situation. I’m trying to see where I want to take my talent. By the way, I was not dropped. I got an official release.”

On starring in Gang of Roses 2 alongside Wiz Khalifa and Amber Rose: “When I heard that it was a Western, I didn’t care about who was in it, I didn’t care about who was directing, I cared that I just did a film where I was a baby mother [Tyler Perry's Madea's Big Happy Family]. I got the opportunity to be a cowgirl.”

On her relationship with Chris Brown: “Sometimes it’s easy when you’re totally not interested in your brother. Sometimes as a sister, I fall back and give him his space because that is my like best friend. As a sister and as a woman, I give him his space because I know that’s the space I would want.”

On her breakup with Milwaukee Bucks player Brandon Jennings: “We’re both hard workers, but we’re both not where we wanna be yet. I need him to focus to get there and I need to focus to get where I wanna be. You never know what the future holds. We’re super cool and I actually respect him for that. We can finish what we started another time, but right now, [the focus is] my EP and the NBA.”

On her sexuality: “When I first came out with the sneakers and stuff, mind you I’m only 15 years old, so the fact that I was actually dressing my age, I was gay to the world. But now everybody’s wearing sneakers and it’s sexy. The tomboy thing is in now. It’s actually better for me, so they can stay out of my business when I am dating.”

    @XO till we overdose, her comparing herself to him would have been her saying “im like lebron” she clearly SAID “i am in a lebron SITUATION” so apparently she compared her label situation to the situation he was in…LISTEN and u would understand the difference.

    @rory,

    It’s true that she has been on the scene way too long to not have a record out, regardless of the underlying reasons. We understand her situation now, but the fact still remains.

    @credits, the both of yall must be having trouble understanding what’s being said its never a FACT that she still doesnt have music out, thats what ppl ASSUME because she was signed but if u pay ATTENTION to what’s being said you would know that there is so much that comes with putting out music its nothing for some artists and harder for others and people like you should respect that. what matters is that she’s putting out music, movies & videos NOW let the past be the past.

    I love how she’s still a virgin. I can see if she was 18, but to be 21 and still have those same values shows alot about her character. Gained so much respect for her.

    Some people can really make something out of nothing, Chris Brown is busy, damn the dude has a life, don’t think he has cut her out & don’t have time for her, dude is busy plain and simple.

    @and,

    You always, always make time for friends no matter what. They either fell out or were not real friends in the first place.

    I always thought she was sort of tom boyish but never got the notion that she was a lesbian. She has some beautiful features and I bet she could get a lot of guys. Anway, I am so hyped for that EP to drop!!! I love her music and “Make a Move” is a JAM.

  19. A Realist

    Never really paid attention to her before, but she’s pretty cool. Didn’t like her Google Me song. But I did like the Marvin’s Room remix. I’m going to check out some more stuff from her.
