Somehow she had had the feeling for a long time that she should be on this cover - at least she claims.
Teyana Taylor has been named "Sexiest Woman Alive" by "Maxim" magazine.
She is the first black woman to be number one on the “Hot 100” that the magazine has been selecting since 2000.
The 30-year-old American works as a singer, songwriter, choreographer and actress.
According to “Maxim”, she said of her award: “I've always had the feeling that I should be on the cover.” That's why the call from the magazine meant a lot to her.
Taylor posted the cover picture on Instagram, on which she can be seen in camouflage pants and a white croptop.
To this end, she wrote a text in which she expressed herself more incredulously than she suggested in the magazine.
"Can someone pinch me !!!!" she wrote.
As an entrepreneur, wife, and busy mother of two, she mostly hides under sweatshirts and vintage t-shirts, Taylor said.
You don't have a lot of time "to be sexy and make me feel sexy."
On the day of the cover shooting, she discovered another side of herself, said Taylor.
She arrived unprepared, but the photographer wanted to take a picture of her as she was.
The true beauty of a woman is reflected in her soul, Taylor quoted actress Audrey Hepburn as saying.
