Teyana Taylor Opens Up About Relationship and Internet Trolls

The singer credits boyfriend with keeping her from lashing out.

Published October 30, 2014

Teyana Taylor is ready to turn the other cheek when it comes to haters on the Internet. The singer might have fed into the cray cray back in the day, but nowadays, she's too happy to care about what negative people are saying about her. So what's the reason behind her peaceful transformation? Simple — the woman is in love.

"It's different when you're single and with your girls and somebody talks some s**t and you're like 'I'm bout to go in.' But when you're in love and you're happy and that person is your peace of mind, pretty much anything they say, he's like, 'Babe stop paying attention,' and you're like, 'Alright, you're right,' she told MadameNoire.com. "It's definitely different than how I used to be, but now that I'm in a different place in my life, I actually don't feed into it at all."

Indeed, her boyfriend Iman Shumpert has made a positive impact on the singer, so it's no wonder that Taylor wants to share her love with the world. And her followers seem to also enjoy watching the relationship unfold, even if she hasn't been posting as much online as she used to.

"They love us because we're super silly. You can tell when people are just genuinely happy. It makes you happy for them," Taylor said. "At that point, if you're hating, something's wrong. And you're fighting not to love it. Don't fight it, girl, just let it happen."

"And that's how I look at haters now," she continued. "I feel like the more afraid they get, the time is here and there's no turning back, the more they hate. At first I used to think, 'Am I really bad?' But no, bro, I just gave you vocals down. You're afraid. As you should be. So the more afraid you get, the more you got to hate."
