Empire's Serayah and Yazz Explain Why They're Not Dating

Serayah and Bryshere “Yazz” Gray are all smiles on the December/January 2017 cover of Seventeen magazine, on newsstands November 22.

Here’s what the Empire duo had to share with the mag:

Serayah on role models: “You can dream on something, meditate on it, and want it, but what’s equally important is doing all the work you possibly can… I always look at Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant—they were the first ones in the gym and the last ones in the gym. And I just was watching a documentary on Beyoncé, where a background singer was saying that Beyoncé’s the first and last one in the stadium to rehearse. I thought that was awesome. It’s those moments that count, and that’s why those people are who they are.”

Serayah on overcoming her insecurity: “I hated my hair—it always felt poufy and curly and people would poke it and ask, ‘Why is it so big?’ I started dyeing and cutting it and trying to make it as straight as possible. Then I got this role on Empire where I wear my hair big and natural, and I’ve come to realize it’s beautiful.”

Yazz on why he and Serayah aren’t a real-life couple: “She’s a cool girl. She’s very attractive, but we’re just so much friends, like homies.”

Empire's Serayah & Bryshere Gray Talk Dating Co-Stars with 'Cosmopolitan'

Empire co-stars Bryshere “Yazz” Gray and Serayah pose in this photo shoot for Cosmopolitan magazine’s November 2016 issue, on newsstands October 11.

Here’s what they had to share with the mag:

Serayah, on what men get wrong about women: “Some guys are nice but put on a bad-boy exterior because they’re trying to protect themselves. A girl just wants to know you care and you’re listening. Bad boys are such an issue, man. I’m learning it’s all about the nice guys.”

Bryshere, on what women get wrong about men: “Y’all have pretty much got us figured out. But the thing is, we’re not all dogs and opportunists…”

Bryshere, on dating co-stars: “I say keep it professional. Unless it’s Halle Berry. I wish Halle would get a role on Empire. I’m waiting!”

Serayah, on dating co-stars: “It could happen. If I’ve known them for a while and it’s authentic, I’m not opposed.”
