Mya tied the knot several years ago, but many fans may not know that the singer’s marriage differed vastly from most. Instead of marrying a significant other, Mya opted to marry herself. On Tuesday, Dec. 29, reports about Mya’s recent appearance on Fox Soul’s “Out Loud with Claudia Jordan” began circulating online. During that discussion, the singer explained just how and why that actually happened.

According to Mya, she was inspired to do so after leaving a toxic relationship. In fact, she also revealed she recently renewed her vows as she explained the real meaning behind her marriage to herself.

“It was all about self-care, self-love and getting myself back after a toxic relationship,” Mya said.” Last year, I renewed my vows stepping into a new year. It’s not about anything like ‘all men are bad’ or anything like that. It’s really about becoming your best self and making sure that you’re leveling up in all aspects of your life.”

She went on to explain how one of her newer songs explains her personal growth journey. “That’s what that video and song ‘The Truth’ represented for me. It dropped on Valentine’s Day when most people expect you to have a boo and show all these pictures on social media. They wanna know who you’re booed up with. But that’s not what it was for me. It was also art, but people had their own interpretations. But that’s what it was for me. And it’s a true story.”
