When Teyana Taylor tells you to do something, you should do it without question.

I mean, you just don't mess with a girl who has buns of steel and the most toned arm muscles you've ever seen.

So, prepare to love your thighs, wobbly bits and cellulite because the 25-year-old rapper/dancer is on a mission to help women – and men – realise it's time to start respecting and embracing their unique and powerful bodies.

In an interview with Teen Vogue to promote her Fade 2 Fitness online workout program, the star said: 'I don't feel like there's such a thing as an imperfect body.

'You have to overcome things and look in the mirror and say, 'I am beautiful',' the mother-of-one added.

Of course, this is easy for the dancer – who found out she was to star in Kanye West's iconic video just three weeks before shooting – to say given her athletic and covetable physique.

However, the singer is quick to point out she struggles from the same insecurities about body image just as much as the next woman, and blames social media for its negative influence on body-confidence.

'I feel like a lot of reasons why it's hard to love ourselves is because of other people's opinions. Guys are very judgmental and make women feel like they're less than,' she admits.

'Social media plays a part in that 99.9% of the time,' she continues.

However, the bonafide goddess – who last year taught us there's no reason why a woman can't have it all – is using social media platforms to help change the way women view their bodies and promote body positivity.

'I wrote something today on Instagram that said 'to all my ladies, never forget that we are super women',' she said.

'Every stretch mark, every sag, every dimple, cellulite, it all comes from sacrifices and love,' she added.

And on that note, we're about to strip down to our sports bra, rub baby oil all over ourselves and dance to 'Fade' in the gym à la Teyana Taylor.
