It is a new day and a new age, and that has to be celebrated with a new Celebrity Crush! Our latest addition to our gallery of Woman Crush Wednesdays is brave, courageous, outstanding, and a true “Star” all her own, the lovely Amiyah Scott! Amiya may be loved by millions now thanks to her role of “Cotton” on Lee Daniels’ new hit series Star, but we loved her even before her rise to fame. On the series she is Carlotta’s (Queen Latifah) transgender daughter who not only desires to fully transition, but wishes for her mother’s acceptance.
Hailing from New Orleans, Louisiana, Amiyah made her mark on the world not only with her talents, but her origins. As a transgender woman she knows the ups and downs life can bring and has not let it stop her from reaching her dreams. We came across her when she was doing her makeup tutorials on Amiyah Scott Live before she was set to be cast on The Real Housewives of Atlanta. It seems she was destined for fame either way, but we are happier to see her making her acting debut. Reality television (thanks to Donald Trump) is overrated!
Rumor has it Amiyah has been romantically linked to a number of rappers and athletes including Wiz Khalifa, Soulja Boy, and Chad Johnson. Although no one can prove who she has been with, we do not feel it really matters. She is a beautiful woman with curves, legs, and a body that proves science can now truly make someone’s outsides match their insides! Most of all we love just how proud and open she is with her identity. Her role on Star is bringing the story of so many transgender people to the forefront and we respect her even more for it.
You all just be sure to catch Amiyah every Wednesday on Star at 9 PM EST only on Fox!
