It’s been a while since we’ve seen R&B songstress Jazmine Sullivan out and about. While we know she’s been in the studio working on her third album, it appears she’s been putting in work at the gym as well.
In a recent Instagram post, the 25-year-old is seen posing with a noticeably slimmer physique. She has yet to speak publicly about how she shed the extra pounds, but in the photo she’s glowing and smiling ear-to-ear.
When we first met the “I Need You Bad” singer in 2008 she was curvy and fabulous. Sullivan spoke openly about the pressures to lose weight in the music industry, but she remained confident and let her inner and outer beauty shine.
We can only hope that the pressures of the industry didn’t encourage her weight loss. While we celebrate health and fitness, we also embrace our curves and smile at broader views of beauty.
Jennifer Hudson, Jordin Sparks and Raven-Symoné are among the talented women of color who have lost significant amounts of weight, and look great. But, to keep it 100 with you, I hope our young celebs know that we love them just the same whether they’re thick, full-figured or slim.
Nonetheless, cheers to healthy and happy.
