Rap newcomer Young M.A has opened up and provided fans with some insight into her personal life. The New York native digs into her pre-fame days in a new ELLE feature.

Within her story, M.A discusses having a disinterest in wanting to fit the typical girl stereotype when growing up.

The real Young M.A doesn’t do makeup, even on camera. In the throwback childhood photo she chose to be her first-ever Instagram post, she wears a full football uniform and a giant smile. “Sometimes I question why I was born this way. I never wanted to wear skirts or shoes, makeup, nails, dresses, or even wear my hair a certain way,” the caption reads. “I always wanted to wear sneakers, stud earrings, hair in a ponytail, and play with the boys. I never wanted to be a cheerleader, I wanted to play football. I always wanted to be the boy doll. I never understood it until I got older and realized this is just who I was meant to be and I am proud of who I am.” (ELLE)

Over the past couple weeks, Young M.A has fueled romance rumors with vixen Tori Brixx.
