From an interview she did for Indosplace a few years
ago based on her experience in the industry, and
specifically as the editor of SHOW magazine
”What the outsiders
don't understand is that there are factors on both
sides that make your favorite girl appear in
magazines consistently. First off, your favorite
model might be a bitch on set, a diva, hard to work
with, require excessive airbrushing, be pregnant, be
in a relationship with a guy that doesn't want her to
model anymore, having family issues, etc. Just
because you love her, and see her active on twitter
does not mean she's desirable, or available as a
model to the magazines.
It's soooo frustrating when the girls that have the
most promise visually, can NOT seem to get it
together professionally. This job takes a fighting
spirit, work ethic, thick skin, and sense of
self-worth that a lot of the most beautiful girls
simply don't have.
You can try to help, but it gets exhausting trying to
help women that don't believe you when you tell them
how pretty they are, won't take 30 min out their day
to answer bio questions, won't show up on time etc.
So yeah, the spoils then go to the hustlers. The
girls that are actively helping themselves and won't
ruin your connections by flaking on a shoot or
throwing a temper tantrum. The work goes to the
Rosa's, the Suelyn's, Coco's, Amie's, etc. Because
they simply make everyone's job much easier."

This was one of my favorite spreads from this issue
of KING magazine
. As some of you
know, Vanessa Veasley
my blog in which she prognosticated about the
future of urban modeling, stating (in response
to whether urban modeling was dead): "There is
no industry. There are urban models, urban
mags, urban music, and events, but we have
totally lost the small industrious nature of it
we were slowly cultivating in the early
. ¶ I don't think it will ever recover.
Models are being replaced by strippers who don't
need the money and beautiful, insecure women who
shoot mags only to validate themselves. Any dude
with a camera is now a photographer; any dude
that can code has an online magazine. Music
videos have no budgets and no one watches them
anyway. It's a circus." I always thought that
was a pretty dead on assessment of the current
state of affairs in "the business." Gotta love
it: beauty and brains.

I've got an ax to grind with Vanessa Veasley
It's not that I don't like her
personally - I don't really know her - but I
don't like how she ostensibly worked the system
by being an editor at SHOW while also being
featured on several covers.
According to Vanessa, that's inaccurate. A recent
exchange between us on the infamous BlakkJackSkanz
went a little something like this:
Within minutes of her
post, I got an email from her that read: "Instead
of making up lies and assumptions about me on your
and other websites why not just interview me? Might
be fun! Lol" Busted! Touche Ms. Veasley. What
you're about to read is the result Vanessa's good
sportmanship and invitation to interview her.

This is the result of over 9,000 votes on
- one of the
best known websites for urban models out there.
A couple interesting notes: 1) Seems like Suelyn
should be higher - she had a great '09, 2) Seems like
Cubana and Vanessa should be lower; a testament to
the power of a large Twitter following, and 3)
Suleika's position seems well deserved.
Bria finished Second Place in Cutie Central's Top Vixen Poll
(number one for Model in Highest
Demand) so it looks like she is quite possibly
the number one urban model right now.
