I shocked my colleagues when I told them Karrueche Tran had snagged two Daytime Emmys. Say what you will about daytime television, but a win is a win is a win, and Karrueche has already shifted her focus to prime time viewing as a devious manicurist on TNT’s Claws, opposite Niecy Nash. The hard work has not gone unnoticed, she just scored herself an editorial spread in Paper Magazine and was nice enough to share the resulting photoshoot on her personal Instagram account.
Karrueche took advantage the opportunity to dispel several falsehoods about her come up, including the backlash her show Claws received for supporting abortion. Karreuche simply threw her arms up and sighed, “You win some you lose some.” As for the criticism she’s received due to a societal fixation body issues, she herself credits her harshest critics for helping her step out that pattern. She asked: “Why am I changing who I am because other peoples’ comments? I can represent other girls out there and make them feel confident, which is hard in this world where everyone just wants to be thicc.”
Karrueche’s Paper Mag interview/editorial is available online in its entirety.
