Teyana Taylor & Brian White for Bleu Magazine…

Teyana Taylor Glams it up for the 4th Anniversary  Issue of Bleu Magazine.

BLEU Magazine celebrates its 4th Anniversary and the Summer 2010 Issue with a double cover graced by actor Brian White and recording artist and actress Teyana Taylor. “I have been a fan of Brian White for years and have seen his climb to success, so for him to grace not only the cover of Bleu Magazine, but our 4th Anniversary, means so much to me, because its proves to me once again, that through thick and thin we must keep pushing and go hard for another four years,” said De’Von Christopher, Publisher of Bleu Magazine. “…And then to have Teyana also grace the cover it’s like seeing something come to fruition finally. Bleu was something small when it started and now it is finally being recognized for its content and longevity,” he added.
