Interview w/"Hot Pic" contest winner Miss Kris!

When I thought of the "hot pic" contest way back last year, I was taken aback by the pic of hot model Miss Kris. What I liked about the picture that Miss Kriss submitted was just her pose and the color schemes that were used. It was a real piece of art! Miss Kris won the contest and rightfully so. I just loved her beauty and her smile! Credit is also due to the photographer Robert Watson for taking this impressive pic! Check out this interview with the lovely Miss Kris and check out the sites she is on and you will see what I mean!

1) The picture you submitted to my "Hot Pic"contest was off the hook with the colors and the pose that you did. Tell me about the photographers behind the picture that you submitted.
The photographer is a good friend of mine-Robert Watson of Desire Photos. One day we were bored and just playing around, because he wanted to try out some new equipment he purchased. I think we were both surprised at how good the pictures came out considering it was just a spur of the moment type thing.

2) On your Myspace page, you say that you arent a model, you just look like one. As true as this is, I have to ask, would you consider modeling, being as good at it as you are and having that beauty that you have? I would consider modeling…I don’t turn down nothing but my collar! I just want people to know that I am a journalist first and I modeling is just an extra talent.

3) Another thing you say in those big white letters is that you are a journalist. What got you into journalism? Also, would you consider starting a "blog" like this one, which alot of journalists do? Ever since I was a little girl I wanted to be on tv. I dreamed of being a prettier, skinnier version of Oprah….lol… so that’s when the journalism interest was born…. Just kidding! But seriously, I went to school for journalism and that’s when I realized that it’s a really meaningful career and a way to get my voice and the voice of others heard. I don’t really have time to write a blog, but I love reading yours.

4)You are a journalist first, and a model in your spare time. What got you started in modeling? And how long have you been doing it?
My mom made me do beauty pageants when I was little girl because she thought they developed character….lol. I guess that’s kinda how things got started. People have always told me I should be a model, but I would always shrug it off as “game.” But, recently I started taking modeling more seriously because it has been rewarding. Getting paid to smile is definitely a good deal! It’s a fun and easy little side hustle, so I have been doing it for the past year.

5) Your name and look are really exotic. What is your ethnic background?African-Ja-Merican. My mom is black and my father is Jamaican. People ask me all the time am I mixed and I say “No, I’m just a regular ole sista” lol

6) Being as beautiful as you are, you must get a lot of attention day to day. How do you deal with all that attention?
Everyone’s perception is that pretty girls get a lot of attention, but in reality most men think I’m unapproachable. I don’t get a lot of attention, but when I do-of course it makes me feel good. I just smile and take it all in stride.

7) If you were a piece of candy, what would it be and why?
Umm… skittles I guess?!?! That’s my favorite type of candy so I guess we are both vibrant thangs, we have a a tough exterior and soft inside, and we are full of flavor so we appeal to all the senses.

8) What attracts you to a man?
Swagger and Appearance initially attract me to a man, but it takes much more than that to keep me interested.

9) If you had the opportunity, would you work in music videos? And who's video would you jump at the chance to be in?
Well… I love to dance, but I think my booty shaking is best left at home in front of my mirror. I don’t think I would work in music videos unless it was like Chris Brown or John Legend serenading me with a sweet little love song ;-)

10) What magazine would you most want to be featured in?
O Magazine. Oprah is my role model and plus everyone reads that magazine.

11) I'd really like to see more of you. Are you on any other sites besides your Myspace page? For those of you in the Charlotte, NC area and surrounding, you can see me every Monday night at 10:30pm on Channel 21. I host a show called “The Time is Now”. I’m also featured on carolinablackbeauties.com

My interview with top model Ksyn!

Kysn is a really beautiful model from NYC (the Bronx to be exact!) She has a hot layout in the current issue of Smooth Magazine that is in stores right now! I first found out about this aspiring dancer and all around flygirl from her Yahoo Group. I must have been the very first member! What I like about Ksyn is obvious; you will see what I mean from those spine tingling photos in that layout in Smooth! Plus, she's an all around, cool, laid back, down to Earth sista. What more could you ask for? Learn more about the lovely addictive model Ksyn!

First of all, where are you from and what city, state or town are you representing? I am from the Boogie Down Bronx.

What are your measurements? 32-27-39

Ksyn is a pretty name which seems exotic. Your look is really exotic also. What is your ethnic background? Exotic, maybe but as far as I know I am all American.

Why did you want to become a model? It started as a self esteem builder then i realized that i was good at it so I continued to pursue it.

If you were single and somebody set you up on a blind date, and you got the prospects phone # and called him before the date, how would you describe yourself and what would you tell him would be a good reason to date you? If I were single and somebody set me up on a blind date and I cakked him before the date I would describe myself as a sexy chocolate female that pretty in the face, small at the waist and thick in the hips. Then I would tell him that the reason he should date me is because I am down to earth, like to have fun and enjoy life.

I'm sure the fellas want to know-are you single or taken? Lol. I am chilling at the moment. It is about the grind right now everything else happens when it happens.

Who is your greatest influence and what help you to decide that you would love to be a model, and what do you bring to the modeling field or game? My greatest influence would have to be Iman because since she started modeling she has never changed. She classifies that I would think a model should be before and after the fame.

What do you like to do in your free time? Free time? What free time. lol. Nah, I like to sit at home, hang out with the family. I dont see them a lot so they become priority.

Where is your favorite vacation spot? My favorite vacation spot would have to be Disney World. I am a big kid as well as a rollercoaster buff so I always enjoy myself when I am there.

If you were a piece of candy, what would it be and why? If I were a piece of candy I would be a M&M because they become addicting. You can never eat just one.

What was your first kiss like? My first kiss was quick and simple. Nothing dramatic about it at all.

Another question Im sure the fellas will want to know, what are you most likely to wear to the beach? To bed? To the club, if you go to clubs? To the beach I would have to say a bikini, Brazilian of course, to bed an oversized t-shirt, the club now that depends on the weather but I am notorious for wear a bikini top or bathing suit with a pair of tight low rise jeans.

What is your most defining feature? My most defining feature would be my legs. I keep them toned and sexy.

Being as beautiful as you are, you must get alot of attention day to day. How do you deal with all that attention? I deal with it the way any other woman would. I say thank you, smile and hold conversations once in a while. You can't always assume that every guy is trying to talk to you to get with you.

What's the worst opening line you have heard? That would have to have been when i was in NC. This dude came up to me and said " You look like a cup of hot chocolate and I just want to slurp you up". LOL.

If you had a choice, what magazine would you be on the cover of? If I had a choice I would have to say either W or Vogue because they are the a great representation of high end fashion.

If you had a choice of videos, which one would you be in? A dirty south crunk video or would you go R&B? I would go for an R & B video. I am a very sensual person and that would just fit.

What is your favorite part about being a model? I love to be on stage so I would have to say doing fashion shows. I have so much fun.

Which do you prefer, runway modeling or just photoshoots? RUNWAY!! but photoshoots are not bad either but I love to be on stage so runway would be the answer.

What’s the best advice ever given to you and what are your goals in terms of being a model? The best advice ever given to me was to do what you do and love doing it. The second you stop loving it is time to move on. My goal in terms of being a model is to do both urban and commericial print work as well as still pursue my dance career.

Who do you prefer, Tyra or Naomi? Tyra

I've seen you on your Yahoo Group and Myspace, are you on any other sites? I am also on www.myspace.com/Miss_Ksyns_World you can find my yahoo group link there as well.

Anything else you want to throw out there to the people?
Look out for me in Smooth magazine, updates on the issue will be posted to my myspace page as well as my yahoo group. (Editors note: Issue is out now!) And I will be hosting a Dance showcase at BAM located in Downtown Brooklyn on the 24th of Feb. So be on the look out for that. Make sure to checkout my myspace page and yahoo group for updates and events. As well as for new pics, videos and interviews.

I’m glad that I got a chance to catch up with you, so for my last question, I want you to sum up your style and yourself with one word.....
Your healthy Addiction.

Hot pic! Vida on cover of KING Magazine!


She tells the mag that Bryan Barber, who directed the music video for “Wouldn’t Get Far.” offered her loot to do the video. “Bryan Barber called me and offered me $50,000 to be in the video and I turned it down,” she tells KING. “They told me Melyssa Ford was doing it, but I knew she wasn’t. Turns out Game’s people told her that I was doing it. They tried to run some game there.”

Models I Like on America's Next Top Model #8

I just finished watching the first show of the new cycle for America's Next Top Model. I think right now the Models I am liking are Felicia, Dionne, Cassandra, and Whitney.

What I like about Felicia is that she just hot right now as far as looks. She said she's been compared to Tyra, I say she got a lil' Tyra going on, and she looks like some other models, but she got a look of her own I am loving.

Dionne, she's just cute as hell. I think that just like Felicia, she wasn't really all that impressive, but Im just looking forward to seeing her do much better in episodes to come.

Cassandra, I like how she just true to herself. She knows how to wear that sewn hair; she be wearin' it out!

Whitney is just irresistable. She got a smile and unless the angle for this season is plus sized girls, I think that she will make it further and totally outshine that other plus sized model.

Hope my girls make this an interesting cycle! I think I will like this season better than the last one.

What's up with the blog????


This last month has been pretty inconsistent, but I am back and I am going to be doing daily posts (or at least I will try, LOL). The first thing I want ot post about is the awesome Black Men 40 on 40 Magazine. This issue of another one of their spin off series has some awesome models in it. The first thing you seen when you see it on the newstand is 4 beautiful models!

Bria Myles is the the beautiful, chocolate brown black woman (check her out at her site: www.briamyles.com)

Nicole Austin is Ice-T's wifey who I covered before when she was in the last Smooth Magazine. I guess she's pretty much one of the new "it" girls in that she has been making the rounds, being all over the place lately.

Nina Santiago is the beautiful Latina on the cover who is also an aspiring actress. The issue also has a roll call of all the beautiful models who are in the industry, and includes all the sites they are on, their measurements, and quotes. Its not on the news stands anymore at least here in DC. It is however, available on Ebay.

As for this month, I will hopefully get more interviews, more posts about models, and more hot pics!
