“Best of Me” singer Mya has been notoriously private about her personal life throughout her decades long career, which is why fans were so surprised when she posted a picture of herself in a wedding dress last February.
Fans were excited and happy for the singer and quickly began wondering who the lucky guy was. Well it turns out the pictures were from a video for her single “The Truth”, and not from an actual wedding day.
Even though she didn’t tie the knot that specific day, according to Mya she’s actually been married much much longer, since 2013, to herself. Mya recently revealed in an interview with Claudia Jordan for her show Out Loud with Claudia Jordan on Fox Soul, that she’s been happily committed to herself for quite some time now.
She chose to wed herself as a way to take ownership over her life. “I did a music video where I married myself and the Internet went crazy when a wedding photo was leaked first and I just went along with it. Because I actually did marry myself in real life at the end of 2013.”
She continued, “I didn’t even say anything. I just said ‘thank you.’ A lot of people kept asking me, like, ‘Who’s the lucky guy?’ I said, ‘Well. It’s not a guy at all…’ It was actually really fun. Some of the interpretations were out of this world, but things happen and things get misconstrued. But it’s been a beautiful ride.”
Elsewhere in the interview she talks about her music, her vegan lifestyle and much more.
The singer and health enthusiast has been very public with her desires to live a happy and healthy life, so in many ways marrying herself is not a huge surprise. She has existed as an independent artist for several years now, writing her own rules for her career and taking charge of her life.
“The Great Escape. ☀️🧘🏽♀️
