Singer Tanerélle slams critics – I am happy with my body


Singer Tanerélle at the recently concluded BET Awards

On Sunday the BET Awards were on and as always apart from the main event, there is the Red carpet looks from different celebrities to look out for. One particular artiste caught many people’s attention when she walked the Red carpet without a bra and her breasts were sagging. The “Dreamgirl” singer attended Sunday’s BET Awards looking and feeling good in a low-cut dress, by designer Batani-Khalfani, which exposed some of her chest. However, the look led to comments on social media about her natural breasts and how they needed a “lift” in the frock. She didn’t take kindly to the criticism and responded on Twitter.

“To all the negative comments about today’s look, I don’t need to lift my breast[s] to wear a f***ing dress,” she wrote. “I’m a woman and my natural t**s hang and I f***ing love it and I have no intention of changing it to suit your gaze. I’m out here living my dreams. Focus on better things.”

A day after the awards, the singer addressed the topic on instagram. She said she initially had taped one breast, but “looked at it & made a conscious decision to take it off because I actually loved the way my natural breasts looked in comparison to the ‘perfect’ option.”

She repeated, “Last time I checked, what I thought about how I look was all that mattered, so I’m gonna keep going with that cause it’d be f***ing impossible to please EVERYONE when it comes to ME. I can’t be everyone’s favorite and I don’t wanna be, but as long as I’m able to go home and feel yummy about myself, especially from the self-hate that I’ve spent my life growing out of…I’m f***ing GOOD.”

Batani-Khalfani, who designed the dress, also spoke out in support of Tanerélle. She said the singer “rocked” the dress, and slammed the trolls. She added, “I design for bomb women with curves and her fly curves looked beautiful in my fly dress without all the lifts, without the tape and all that. I always respect a woman who is willing to be who she is because I’m going to always be who I am no matter what anybody says and those are the women I design for.”
