Yolanda Adams may be one of many beautiful members of the Gospel music community, but don’t expect her to overdo it in favor of being sexy. The singer recently shared her thoughts on being sexy and the flack her friend Erica Campbell has received for wearing a form-fitting white dress on the cover of her latest effort, “A Little More Jesus.” In Adams’ eyes, sexy was the last thing on the Mary Mary vocalist’s mind.
“I know for a fact that Mary Mary—because I’ve known them for years—they don’t try to be sexual. Some of the things that they want to wear, they’re in style,” Adams told Think Positive Magazine. A desire to be stylish is something Adams says she and her fellow entertainers want. However, when it comes to their respective shapes that is something they can’t change.
“I’m tall. I’m thin, but I have hips. A gown might graze me in a place where somebody may find it offensive, but it’s not sexual. That was not my intent,” Adams explained. “We can’t walk around with sheets on and moomoos. Then, they’ll talk about [that],” she said. “You have to take criticism with a grain of salt because you’re never going to please everybody.”
As for her individual style, Adams doesn’t have to look far. The singer simply has to look among her own clothing line, Yolanda’s Closet, to find a suitable outfit. “I’m very respectful in everything I wear,” said the singer, who admits to being very conscious about what she wears. “I think about it.”
