What do you think makes a woman sexy?

For me, personally I think that brains, ambition, and confidence make a woman sexy. You don’t have to be a size 0 to feel sexy, if you are comfortable in your own skin it will radiate from the inside out. I mean really, SEXY comes in all shapes and sizes. As a woman, I love to show off my curves and sexiness but I also want people to know that I have brains to go along with that sexiness. I am a Mom, I work, and attend college full time working towards my Master’s degree and if that is not ambition I don’t know what is. Plus, I am trying to work on some other projects at the same time.

Can a woman learn to be sexy or is it an inherited trait?

I think for some women it is inherited, but for others I think you have to learn how to love the body God gave you and run with it. I have always been on the thick side and even got made fun of when I was younger. In the end I think it made me embrace who I am and my sexy body even more. Love who you are, love your body and the sexiness will come out.

What do you enjoy doing most?

I love to travel! When I was younger, my family and I would travel every summer to go to the Hot Rod Nationals. Then another trip somewhere before my brother and I went back to school. We would strap the pop up camper on the back of the 38’ Ford Sedan my Dad had and hit the open road. It was always an amazing adventure! Not only did I get to see some amazing cars, but I went to some amazing places that most people would never think about going to visit. I have seen Mt. Rushmore, Crazy Horse Mountain, the Statue of Liberty, the World Trade Center, the White House, and so many more places that I will never forget. Now that I have my daughter, I want her to be able to see the world just like I did when I was a kid. Those are the kind of memories that stay with you forever.

What degree program are you pursuing in college?

I am a Marketing major. I plan to use all the education and skills I am getting at Indiana University to open my own business in the future. I love tattoos, retro fashion, classic cars, and pin up photography. I am planning to incorporate all these things into something no one, here in Kokomo, has seen before.

Who inspires you the most?

Betty Page is a big inspiration to me because she was never afraid to break the rules and do something completely out of the box. She was so ahead of her time. She really paved the way for so many women. She came from nothing and even spent some of her life in an orphanage. Yet, she overcame all of that and graduated at the top of her class in high school! Also, graduated with a Bachelor’s degree from Peabody College. She began modeling as a pin up in 1947 and was soon one of the most sought after pin up girls. She was a centerfold in Playboy in 1955 and did pin up and fetish photos that are forever immortalized. She was a true Pin up Icon in my eyes.

What style of music inspires you the most?

I love all types of music but reggae music inspires me the most. It incorporates so many different musical elements; from R&B, jazz, calypso, African, Latin music, and several other genres too. No matter what mood I am in…listening to some good reggae music just makes me want to get up and dance. Like the great Bob Marley said, “One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain”.

What advice would you give an aspiring artist or writer?

Always be true to who you are! Don’t conform to what someone else thinks you should be. It will be a pretty boring world if we all did the same thing. Don’t ever be afraid to break out of the box and follow your dreams, you never know where they will take you in life.

How does music influence your daily life?

Without music, life would be so boring. It speaks to me on so many different levels. Music keeps me going when I am up or down, because no matter what is going on in my life, there is always that one song that speaks to me in that moment and makes things better. If I had to make a choice between having TV or music, I would have to pick music I just don’t think I could live without my music.

Who has had the biggest influence on your life?

My parents have always been a big influence in my life. They don’t always agree with everything I do but they always support me no matter what! I also think that my Grandma has been a big influence too. She always told all of her grandkids that no matter how many times we fell in life, she would always be there to help us up, love us, and never judge us. From the time I was a little girl, she will always say, “No matter what you do in life, do what makes you happy”.

Do the clothes make the woman or does the woman make the clothes?

I would have to say a little of both, but I think a woman that is confident can pull off anything…if she does it right.

If you could interview one person (from the past, present, or future) who would it be and why?

I’d have to go with Bob Marley. I would love to just roll up some of that good Jamaican Ganja and take in everything that he had to say. He was an amazing artist and humanitarian. The man was a genius and he made such a huge impact in the music world.

James Gandolfini, Who Portrayed Tony Soprano, Dead at 51

June 19, 2013
James Gandolfini, the actor who most famously portrayed Tony Soprano on the series “The Sopranos,” has died in Italy at age 51.

“It is with immense sorrow that we report our client James Gandolfini passed away today while on holiday in Rome, Italy,” said his managers, Mark Armstrong and Nancy Sanders. “Our hearts are shattered and we will miss him deeply. He and his family were part of our family for many years and we are all grieving.”

Gandolfini died while vacationing in Rome and a cause of death has not been given. Gandolfini was expected to attend the Taormina Film Festival in Sicily this weekend and receive the “Taormina City Prize.” Instead, organizers of the festival said they’re putting together a tribute to the actor.

Organizers Mario Sesti and Tiziana Rocca told The Associated Press they had spoken to Gandolfini hours before his death “and he was very happy to receive this prize and be able to travel to Italy.”

Though he rose to his greatest fame playing a New Jersey mob boss on “The Sopranos,” Gandolfini also had a long and diverse list of credits as a stage and film actor, including many character and supporting roles.

“He was a genius. Anyone who saw him even in the smallest of his performances knows that,” “Sopranos” creator David Chase said in a prepared statement this evening. “He is one of the greatest actors of this or any time. A great deal of that genius resided in those sad eyes. I remember telling him many times, ‘You don’t get it. You’re like Mozart.’ There would be silence at the other end of the phone. … He wasn’t easy sometimes. But he was my partner, he was my brother in ways I can’t explain and never will be able to explain.”

After “The Sopranos” ended its run in 2007, Gandolfini received a Tony nomination starring in the Broadway hit, “God of Carnage,” described in a 2009 New York Times article as a “satiric comedy.”

 

“I love hearing people laugh,” he told the interviewer. “Especially in New York, and especially now. To hear somebody out there just belly-laughing.”

Recent film roles included his portrayal of CIA Director Leon Panetta in “Zero Dark Thirty” — and he also appeared in “Killing Them Softly” and “The Incredible Burt Wonderstone,” and reunited with Chase to play the father of an aspiring musician in the film, “Not Fade Away.”

Matt Zoller Seitz, a TV critic for New York magazine who interviewed Gandolfini in the earliest days of “The Sopranos,” told ABCNews.com of Gandolfini’s body of work, “You will never catch him doing anything false, ever.”

“His technique was impeccable and, like Spencer Tracy used to say: Never let them catch you acting,” Seitz said. “James Gandolfini never let them catch him acting.”

Beyond acting, Seitz said Gandolfini made an impression on him as “just a good man” who never forgot his roots.

“He wasn’t one of them. He was one of us,” Seitz said.

HBO, which broadcast “The Sopranos,” said in a prepared statement, “We’re all in shock and feeling immeasurable sadness at the loss of a beloved member of our family. He was special man, a great talent, but more importantly a gentle and loving person who treated everyone no matter their title or position with equal respect. He touched so many of us over the years with his humor, his warmth and his humility. Our hearts go out to his wife and children during this terrible time. He will be deeply missed by all of us.”
