Angela Simmons loves the skin she’s in. The 32-year-old “Growing Up Hip Hop” star, who recently racked up over 230,000 Instagram likes when she posed in a colorful bikini and shared a powerful message about body positivity, isn’t letting society’s beauty standards stand in her way.
“I do not feel any pressure to look a certain in Hollywood or to be a certain size. I’m gonna be who I am,” Angela Simmons told Page Six Style.
“I like to look a certain way — but to look a certain way just for me more than anything. Everyone has body goals, but what’s most important for me is just turning that pressure into my own pressure.”
Continued the mother of one, “I want people to know ‘perfect’ is not perfect. I looked at myself one day and I said, okay, maybe I have cellulite. Maybe I don’t have this perfect body. But I am perfectly healthy and I love myself, so there’s nothing wrong with embracing a roll.”
Simmons said she’s been using her Peloton bike often during quarantine — “I miss the gym, but hey!” — and indulging in her favorite treats. “Italian food and pasta is my weakness,” she shared.
Rapper Yo Gotti sure doesn’t see any issues with the star’s appearance. “I think u perfect,” the rapper — who announced his crush on Simmons in his 2015 hit song “Down In the DM” — commented on her bikini post.
