According to a recent interview she did with Vibe magazine, singer Teyana Taylor may be on the verge of signing with Kanye West’s G.O.O.D record label. Teyana released her first single “Google Me” back in 2007 and was originally signed to Pharell’s Star Trak label. However, no official album was ever released and the singer’s once promising career was quickly brought to a halt.
In the years since “GM” Teyana has become more of a socialite and fashionista, best known for her sense of style and close ties to Chris Brown, rather than for her music. Collaboration on Kanye’s “Dark Fantasy” album last year, however, have since put the focus back on Teyana’s musical abilities.
“Something big just happened to me,” Teyana tells VIBE from the Mercer Hotel in New York City. “It was a big meeting.”
She continues: “I’m in a good situation, good songs, with some good people… good dudes… capital G-O-O-D.”
And while Taylor wouldn’t confirm that she officially signed with Kanye West’s G.O.O.D Music imprint, the proof is in the pudding.
“Tonight is probably the best night. To get to vibe with amazing people—people that you look up to and for them to want your opinion and input, I think is really dope. Tonight is a very, very, very very amazing night for me,” she continues. “They might not understand it but they definitely going to respect it.”
VIBE has now confirmed that Teyana is currently laying vocals for Jay and Kanye West’s first collaborative project, Watch The Throne.

Check out the magazine cover that absolutely everyone is talking about. Can you say Fierce? Teyana Taylor and Teairra Mari brought the hotness for Kontrol Magazine’s “Rock & Romance” issue. Teyanna in particular is looking amazing and has so much untapped talent it isn’t even funny. Hopefully 2010 will be this beautiful Brown Sista’s breakout year.
Like many other celebs, teen socialite Teyana Taylor has decided to try her hand at designing — Lip gloss that is. At least it’s an unsaturated field, right? The official site is still under construction, and the Dope Lips lip gloss won’t even hit stores until next year (2010). My main reason for doing this post is because Teyana recently posted these fab pics of herself modeling and promoting her latest business venture — DOPE LIPS.
Love love love these photos!
Raven Simone, Anika Noni Rose and Mary J. Blige just were just a few of the Brown Sista celebs who came out to help songwriter/producer Ne-Yo celebrate his 30th birthday. The birthday boy recently released “Never Knew I Needed” a song which will be featured on the soundtrack to Walt Disney’s “The Princess and the Frog” movie, which stars Anika Noni Rose (Click here to take a listen). Ne-Yo has also finished up work on Rihanna’s new album which is due to be released November 23rd. Word is one of his tracks may be the second single released from her album.

One of the best things about fashion is its ability to cater to different types of people, especially when it comes to shapes and sizes. Here are a few body-flattering swimsuit styles, tips, and tricks for every shape…
For small chested girls like Cassie, a ruffled string bikini will flaunt what you’ve got, and fake what you don’t!
The best suits for curvier women like songstress Jordin Sparks would be solid colored one-piece bathing suits with a plunging neckline, as they help to keep the attention on your upper half. Tankini styles help to conceal your midriff, and the added ruching sides camouflage a round tummy. Boy shorts are also great for those who want some added coverage around their bottoms.
MTV taped the final episode of their once hugely popular video countdown show, TRL, yesterday in their Times Square studio. As perviously reported Beyonce was on hand to perform, while Teyana Taylor stopped by to share her very short memories of the show. I had heard a slew of Brown Sistas were due to make an apeearance, including Alicia Keys, Mariah Carey and Ashanti- neither of those women were there however. Other big names who represented TRL over the years were also absent. Britney and Christina were the most notable no shows, as were the boy bands who helped make that show so popular back in the late 90s. The only people who did seem to turn out were rappers. Diddy, Nelly and Snoop were all on hand- even though the TRL crowd never showed these artists any real love.
Monique Lhuillier gowns, Zac Posen dresses, Cartier jewels, and Lorraine Schwartz diamonds. What could make any celeb-fashion event better? — Music! Condé Nast’s 5th Annual ‘Fashion Rocks’ concert took place last night @ NYC’s Radio City Music Hall. Celebeauties like Beyoncé, Rihanna, Solange, Mariah, Mary J, and much more performed, but the biggest attraction was, of course, the fashion.
The Raleigh Hotel in South Beach, Florida has been the focus of the fashion world all week long as the swimming pool in the hotel has served as the catwalk for the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim. The oddly named fashion event, which is in it’s fourth year, showcases swimwear collections from some the hottest designers and often has celebrity models walking the catwalk. This year was no different as up and coming singer Teyana Taylor not only performed at the event, but took to the runway as well to model swimsuits by Diesel. Other celebrities rumored to be walking the catwalk in various swimwear shows include, singer Rihanna and actresses Victoria Rowell and Elise Neal, both of whom are over 40.
