Today I’m 27 ! This has certainly been the most painful and difficult year of my life as well as one of great growth power strength and beauty. After losing the most important person in my life I wasn’t sure if I would be able to laugh smile or find joy again. But through all the darkness an uncertainty I put myself first. I found joy in searching my soul and nurturing my gifts and talents. I laughed with my friends and family who kept their hands on me during this process. I smiled when I had major personal breakthroughs and successes. I had to shed certain situations and people in order to get here but I’m better because of it. My acting coach @tasha4realsmith said recently “through our greatest pain comes our greatest work” and Im greatest work is soon to come. I’ve never felt more beautiful, powerful, intelligent, innovative, sexy, creative and comfortable in my own skin than i do today. So I hope everyone who reads this finds comfort and power in these words. Self exploration is one of most precious gifts you can receive and it’s never too late to start. NOW, if you’ll excuse me it’s for me to put on my crown and get to work 👸🏾 #teamthis
TWERK MOVES IN CELEBRATION OF PRIDE MONTH
However, what caught most people's attention was his twerking moves. The reality TV star who looked like he hosted the show was dressed in ragged jeans, and an animal print backless camisole. EJ who held a microphone also had on a heel matching his top.
He could be seen cat-walking to the front of the stage as musical instruments echoed in the background. EJ walked forward, twerked, before bending down in a sassy move, rose back up and then sexily catwalked back to the end of the stage.
All these happened amidst roars and cheers from the audience. He captioned the clip:
"Don’t give this bitch a mic #pridefestnyc #teamthis."
REACTIONS FROM FOLLOWERS
The reactions and comments in the comment section shows how in love EJ's followers are with the clip. The video which has since amassed over two hundred thousand likes has comments like, " this made me miss my connecting flight" and "I've watched this video 157 times" from his fans.
"I LOVE THE BODY I'M IN' - EJ
Recently, during an interview on E News' "Just the Sip," the media personality revealed to host Justin Sylvester:
“I like myself the way that I am. I’m very happy with myself.”
In 2013, EJ came out on the E show, "Rich Kids of Beverly Hills." Although he came out as gay, he also revealed his love for cross-dressing, and this has since brought on some questions about his identity.
During Caitlyn Jenner's public transitioning, EJ revealed that seeing Caitlyn made him think about transitioning. But he is now clarifying his stance on his identity with the words:
"I can be [masculine], I can be [feminine]. I can do whatever I want with it and work with it,” he said. “If I want to [dress in drag], then I’ll do that. But I don’t want to do that all the time.”
THE STRUGGLES OF DATING
Gender identity isn't the only thing EJ Johnson has had to deal with. During his appearance on The Red Table Talk, the reality star told Jada how he's struggled with finding love over the years.
According to EJ, most people just want to date him because of his famous father and not because they genuinely love him.
Regardless of all the struggles, EJ is proud of his identity, and his twerking moves are on point!
