Twenty4Seven Beauty: Alana Mike
Interview By: Moses Gates
Where are you from and how did you get into modeling?
I’m a Georgia Peach/Southern Belle. I was born in Atlanta. My nana took me on a model search one day when I was 8 for John Casablanca. I’ve been hooked every since.
What are your measurements?
Do you think being a professional model these days has been devalued. Why or why not?
Hmmm…..in some ways yes, because if you’re not a Double D, have a 55 inch, 10 pound booty, or you’re not exotic looking enough you’re considered “bottom of the barrel”, Lol.
What do you think qualifies a person as a model today?
I think you have to have attitude, confidence, and a positive outlook, regardless of what anyone else tells you.
What type modeling do you prefer, runway, print etc?
I like it all actually but my most favorite is Glamour Print and Pinup Modeling.
Have you been featured in any magazines, videos, or advertisements? If so, what were they?
Yes, I have been featured in several magazines, such as “iCandy Girls”, “Lez Elegance”, “Paperdolls”, “Stacked”, “Black Men”, “Hard Candy”, “GGurls” and “Certified Dime Magazine”. I’ve also been in 3 music videos, “Suppose To Hurt” by Tristan & Raw Dawg, “Hustle” by Miss Money, and I can’t remember the last one to be honest, lol. They’re all on YouTube.
Is modeling for you a job or a hobby and do you see yourself modeling in the next 5 years?
It’s both, really and as long as God permits me to I’ll model until my dying days as long as my body stays tight and right.
You’ve done a few movies already. What type movies are you looking to get involved with?
Any and everything. I really don’t want to be stuck in specific genre.
Have you ever done porn or would you?
Hell no and I most definitely would never. Well, I mean is what I’ve already in my movies considered porn?!
You have a dominate look. Do people get intimidated by you easily?
Lol yeeeeeesss, all the time and I don’t understand it because I’m cooler than a polar bear. I just have the resting b***h face on, lol.
How do you feel about these women trying to get an edge by getting all these injections. Do you have any? Would you do it?
Ummmm, I’m not a judgmental type of gal so if you like it, I love it. Personally, I don’t see a need to alter or try to enhance what God already put his beautiful paintbrush on.
What is your relationship status and what is your preference: men or women?
I’m single & I like what I like.
Besides modeling what are some or your hobbies?
I love to cook (bake), play with my dog, play video games, go to the gun range, travel, do anything adventurous and fun (swimming, ski’ing, gun range, etc.). I’m huge goofball so I love to laugh.
If you could change one thing in this world what would it be?
All of the hatred and bullying. It really bothers me that people can be so cruel and senseless towards others. No one looks out for the next anymore. I used to get bullied so I can’t stand a bully. Now, I just laugh when I see all of the people who wronged me and I think, “Karma, huh?” Lol.
How do you feel about women who don’t take value in themselves?
I feel like they need to do some soul searching and find themselves, along with some self love and self esteem.
What’s the best way to get on your good side?
Food, laughter, surprises, and hookah, lol.
What’s the best asset on your body?
I say my legs but others say my eyes and my smile.
If you could give some helpful advice about anything you wanted,a what would you say?
Never give up on anything you want. Set goals, smash them, and show people the reason why they should work with you. Go for what you know best and murder it. Rip it’s face off.
Finish this sentence. Beauty is ______.
Beauty is what you make it.
If people had to remember you for your beauty or brains? Which one would you say would be the popular choice?
Lol beauty, of course but I prefer my brains. Only simple minded people will remember you for your beauty because beauty is in the eye of the beholder and it also fades. I’d rather be known or remembered for having a beautiful mind, that way I know people are genuine towards me and about me.
Being a sex symbol, would you consider sex a must have for you?
Really, hmmmm lets just say there’s nothing wrong with having a healthy sexual appetite. Next question, lol.
What’s your favorite position?
Riding, reverse cowgirl style. Omigosh, forgive me mother. Lol, she is going to kill me.
What would you consider a “dream date”?
Dinner in a G5 (Jet) on our way to Paris for a shopping spree. Lol, fingers crossed.
What’s been the biggest turn off to you?
Negativity. I can’t stand a negative person. Omigosh, life is too beautiful and too short to be all bummed.
