#PYNKUpdates: Jazmine Sullivan Covers HelloBeautiful X StuffFlyPeopleLike Digital Cover


imageIt is with great pleasure that present our 5th digital cover and our​ first ever co-branded Digital Cover ​collaboration with, starring R&B songstress Jazmine Sullivan. Sullivan has been a fan favorite since her much loved debut album, “Fearless” in 2008. After a three-year hiatus, she’s back with a new album and a story to tell. Sullivan joined #TeamBeautiful and SFPL for an original photo shoot in New York City and gave an exclusive interview where she discussed her return to the music industry, surviving an abusive relationship and learning to love and appreciate herself.


On That Infamous Tweet

“I told everybody, including my Mom, Dad and management and everything all via Twitter. Everybody was mad at me. [They were] like if you were going to stop at least you could’ve called.”

On Leaving The Music Industry

“A lot of people think that the pressure of the industry and–you know–my weight and everything, kind of made me stop… and me feeling like I was getting the short end of the stick. But that was not it at all. That had a little bit to do with it but a lot of it was that I was dealing with my own mess in my own life, personally, and it all just happened to be too much and I had to stop.”
On Surviving Domestic Abuse

“For a long time, I kind of kept away from everybody. When you know you’re not right, and you know you’re not doing something right, you try to stay away from people who will tell you that.”
“It took me a long time to feel comfortable enough to say it. I went through a lot of guilt myself, like, should I expose this? Am I being petty by talking about it? It’s a lot of feelings that women have in regards to this. But, [I realized] this can possibly help somebody to see that someone that they look up to, or listen to, or are a fan of have actually been through it, and not only have I been through it, but I came out of it. I just felt like it’s a part of my story so why not share it? I’m the face of my own situation. I don’t know if I can be the face for everybody, but I definitely want to share my story the way I’ve experienced it and I hope people can learn from it like I have.”
On Love

“I’m literally figuring things out day by day just like everyone else. People think I know about love more than I actually do. I love love and I’m always on a quest to figure out men and how relationships work and why they don’t work and stuff like that. But I don’t know shit.”
