US R&B artist Jazmine Sullivan’s weight loss story is gaining fans’ attention as her new album, Heaux Tales, debuts. Twitter is going wild with praise for the artist and her work. Let’s take a look at some reactions and find out more about the lifestyle change that led to Jazmine’s spectacular weight loss.

How and why did Jazmine Sullivan lose weight?

Sullivan cut her weight down by 50 pounds, according to The Beet, by switching to a vegan diet. 

However, being skinny was never the goal, Sullivan wrote on her Instagram story. She took to the platform to defend herself against followers who described her new look as “sickly”.

The Beet quoted her as writing, “last week some people dragged me saying I look sickly. […] But I ain’t skinny and that was never my goal.”

Instead, Sullivan continued, “My goal was to support my mother through her battle with cancer by going vegan with her and, in turn, it helped me as well. And I feel really good.”
