Mya stormed the music scene over 20 years ago as a talented singer with incredibly good looks. Now, at the age of 39, the “Movin On” crooner does not look like she’s aged a bit.


In an Instagram post for her October 10 birthday, Mya stunned in a lacy white sleeveless dress that featured a cutout detail at the back. Her sleek curls fell across her back as she stared soulfully at the camera.


Mya, whose career has witnessed the release of eight studio albums and a Grammy award win, expressed her gratitude for the gift of being alive and feeling alive.

“Grateful for the gift of life & the privilege to walk into its next phase today. To be alive is a blessing & often a luxury these days. To feel alive is icing on the cake.”


She also shared some warm words for her fans and even remembered everyone who has the same birthday as she does.

“I don’t take 1 breath for granted, so thank you all for the beautiful messages and wishing a happy Bday to those I share it with. Bless up, reflect, celebrate you, thank God, kiss your mom & pop if you can and welcome the journey ahead.”

Finally, we couldn’t help but notice Mya’s sign-off which might be a hint into one of her beauty secrets. The Washington native wrote, “Love, peace & black castor oil” so it’s a safe bet to say she uses the favorite hair-care product as well.



But there’s more to Mya’s ageless beauty than castor oil. The “Got My Own” singer identifies her vegetarian diet as the secret behind her fountain of youth. Her glowing skin, trim physique, and effortlessly smooth face bear testament.

Mya is very committed to her plant-based lifestyle too because she confirmed:

“It’s impossible to turn back, because I no longer see products – I see process.”


Live Kindly reports that the diet helps to "keep her skin hydrated (plants have a high water content), reduces wrinkles (from heightened cell repair), helps to combat acne, and allows for easier weight control. The diet is also said to be linked with stress and anxiety reduction."

Mya, who became a vegetarian after learning about the cruel treatment meted out to animals used for food, advised folks to give the lifestyle a try, saying:

“I would definitely recommend it [a vegan diet] in every possible way, if you want to see a huge difference in your life, give vegan a try, it’ll grow on you.”



From all indications, Mya knows what she’s talking about. Not only does she have the ageless bit covered, but the musician also has an unbelievable amount of energy for her age.

In a September interview for Billboard, Mya talked about the process of creating her eighth studio album, “TKO” and admitted that she’s a perfectionist.

“I definitely learned that when I want something done, I'm very tunnel-visioned out. I don't come out of the house. I beat myself up. I don't eat. I don't sleep until it's done,”

She shared.


Apart from creating music and touring the world, Mya is also a dancer and an actress. With such a full plate, stress is inevitable, but Mya’s face tells a different story.

Belated birthday wishes to an ageless icon!
