Lauren London Shares The Lengths She Took To Get Snatched For Her GQ Photo Shoot With Nipsey
Lauren London and longtime beau, rapper Nipsey Hussle, posed together for GQ‘s March issue for a whole story about their “storybook romance.” And while the piece was nice, it was the photos (taken by Awol Erizku) that had everyone talking. London looked amazing, snapping shots in curve-hugging dresses and midriff-baring tops. The 34-year-old was letting the world know she was back — even though she never left.
In an interview with Hollywood Life, the beauty and mom of two opened up about the lengths she went to get in strike-a-fierce-pose shape for the photo shoot.
“GQ reached out to us, me and Nip, and wanted to do the power couple segment, and we were both for it and I just drank a lot of water and ate a lot of fruit and vegetables!” she said. “I don’t have time to work out at all, so I just made sure that the foods that I took into my body were live, healthy foods that worked with my body, not against it.”
The photos were also a clapback, in a way, at the people who had so much to say about London’s body after she gave birth to their son, Kross. If you’ll recall, after having her son a few months prior, she and Nipsey attended a Lakers game, and some people criticized her for her weight gain. In 2017, she told the women of The Talk that she wasn’t letting detractors get her down.
“For me, it was like, I just gave birth on a whole ‘nother level. I did some God work,” she said. “I love myself. Weight comes and goes. And I’m a woman and I like pizza and I like french fries and I like burgers and I’m not going to deprive myself of things that I like and enjoy because of how people see me.”
