A lot of us first saw you in 50’s “I Get Money,” but how did you first get your start in modeling?
I came in this industry as a choreographer and the directors and casting directors had a strong response to my talent and beauty. From theire I recieved my first lead role in Young Bucks “I Know U want Me” Video
Once people started to recognize you from the video…how many people actually thought you were 50’s baby mother lol?
Most people were aware that i was not 50’s baby mother due to the current court case. But i was asked by a few people if i was seeing him.
It seemed like were in both the Source and XXL in about same week lol…how did both of those opportunities come about?
Right after the “I Get Money” video, my agents went to work and i was submitted and selected to shoot for both magazines. I shot The Source First and then a few weeks after Bonsu from XXL contacted me to shoot for XXL. They were aware that i had recently shot fot The Source but they still wanted to shoot me anyway.
Tell us about your recent shoot for Complex Magazine…
I did a photoshoot for Complex for theire Adidas Consortium section but after they decided to use it on their website page instead, I was cool with that=)
It’s very rare when someone can be live in both the eyecandy and fashion worlds, how do you balance both sets of opportunities?
I think its a matter of patience and being select with the roles that one agree’s to take on. Just because you are in a video doesnt mean that all you have to or can do. Im picky so I turn down more jobs then i take. I beleive my self worth is priceless so i wont limit my self.
How did you become the face of Coogi Clothing’s Womens Line?
Kieth Perrin of FUBU had been working with me and booking me jobs through his agency, and one day he called me and told me to come up to FUBU to shoot for Coogi Clothing’s Womens Line. The shoot started out with several people but they kept calling me back to shoot, and before I knew it I received a check and saw my pictures in Vegas and all over the website.
