FKA previously revealed she overcame her teeth insecurity at age 20 after a photographer insisted she show them at a shoot.
‘I have really weird, crazy teeth. When I was 20, I was going to get a full set of veneers,’ she told British Vogue.
‘I got all the treatments and all the prep done, but the week before I cancelled it. I had a boyfriend at the time who was a model and boxer, and through him I met the photographer Alasdair McLellan.
‘We were all at the pub and he was doing a shoot for Beat magazine and he asked if I wanted to be in it. So I turned up on the day with my hair scraped back, wearing red lipstick, and he was just like, “Go on, get them teeth out, open your mouth,” and I was just like “What?”
‘Because I had such big teeth and a big gap between them, which I was really self-conscious about, I couldn’t shut my mouth properly. But he just made me forget about that. He saw something different in me, and it changed my life.’
