According to TheJasmineBrand.com, Johnson states, ““I like myself the way that I am. I’m very happy with myself. I always say that if you feel like you’re not in the right body, then, by all means, get to where you want to be I don’t feel that I’m in the wrong body. I feel like this is the body I’m supposed to be in. … I don’t feel the need to transition. I’m almost 100 percent positive I won’t. I’m just very comfortable in my own skin. I like my body.”

He added that fashion is a way of expressing himself, saying, “I can be [masculine], I can be [feminine]. I can do whatever I want with it and work with it. If I want to [dress in drag], then I’ll do that. But I don’t want to do that all the time. I feel like now is the best time of my evolution. I’m always constantly doing something else. I handle myself a lot differently and I’m happiest with this new person I’ve become of the past year or so. I’ve done a lot of growing, I think.”

Johnson also expressed his interest in settling down, now that he is out of his hoe phase, saying, “A lot has changed. I realize I’m not going to meet my man at a club, and that’s where I used to troll for men. We all had to go through a h** phase, and I think I’m successfully out of mine. I’m done. I had a really good run and I had a lot of good memories … and terrible ones … but mostly good ones!”
