“I am here for Baby Phat doing a shoot for Teen Vogue,” the pop artist said. “I love these sneakers. They got some Pure Cat right here. Purple is one of my favorite colors right now, and people say that when you change your favorite color, that means that you’re going through a transition in your life, which I am.
