Teyana Taylor was the breakout star of the 2016 VMAs, thanks to her off-the-hook body and hot dance moves in Kanye West‘s “Fade” music video.
While fans clamored to learn Teyana’s diet and exercise secrets, Taylor insists dancing and good genes are largely responsible for her incredible bikini body.
“Dancing is my workout. I just dance,” Teyana told E! “I almost feel like dance is so underrated in the fitness world.”
Taylor, who flaunted her ripped abs just 6 days after giving birth to daughter Iman Tayla Shumpert Jr. in December 2015, doesn’t adhere to a strict diet or workout routine.
“I do the lazy workouts,” Teyana told VladTV (see video). “I was 6 years old with a six-pack. I was one of those brolic little kids.”
Taylor, 25, continued: “Once I got older I realized, ‘This is not going anywhere.’ My arms are already kind of naturally brolic, so I try to work on the things that I want more toned. I can give you advice all day on the butt and the legs.”
Teyana’s friends confirm she is not obsessive about diet or exercise, and still has a bangin’ body, as TheImproper has reported.
“Teyana Taylor has always just had a crazy-dope body and the way she ‘works out’ is dancing in the studio,” said a source. “That’s her workout.”
Dancing is a total-body workout that fuels rapid weight loss, burns fat and gives you washboard abs, said celebrity fitness guru Shaun T, creator of Shaun T’s Rockin’ Body DVD Workout.
Even Kim Kardashian couldn’t contain her admiration for Teyana’s ridiculously ripped body.
Kim tweeted: “You guys!!! @TEYANATAYLOR has the best body ever!!! Like no joke and just had a baby!!!! ??????????????????????????
Taylor even joked that she hates vegetables and eats mostly high-carb fare like mac and cheese.
“I always tell my mom I’m allergic to vegetables,” Teyana laughed. “I’m more of a fried chicken, baked macaroni. I eat everything. I don’t eat healthy at all.”
While that may be true, it’s likely Taylor doesn’t eat huge portions, and is extremely active as a professional dancer.
While Teyana became an overnight sensation and nearly broke the Internet thanks to her appearance in Kanye’s “Fade” video, she’s actually an accomplished singer in her own right.
Teyana released her debut studio album, VII, in 2014. The music album wasn’t a huge commercial success, but received rave reviews.
Taylor first rose to fame after being featured on an episode of MTV’s “My Super Sweet 16” series in 2007.
Teyana Taylor is engaged to NBA star Iman Asante Shumpert, a shooting guard for the Cleveland Cavaliers.
