What’s life like as a model in LA? “There are a lot of opportunities – it’s better in LA. I’m starting various projects but I’m going to be doing some acting, some small stuff but I will be getting into it. I went to school for acting for a little bit so I think it’s pretty cool. I’ve been shooting different things, clothing lines and things like that and also working on make-up lines in LA, so a little busy.”
Are there many showbiz friends that you hang out with? “I have so many different friends. I have a few close friends. I’m usually just with myself.”
What’s the reason for your obsession with wearing black? “For me black is really classy and when you wear it, it always looks better, more expensive. You can wear it at night. I never know where my life is going to take me on a daily basis, it’s so crazy and off the wall, I feel like I’m prepared in my black outfit for what the day may bring. Party or dinner, I’m wearing an outfit that can go. I’m usually running around so I don’t always have the time to go home and get ready so I’m like ‘yeah I’m wearing this, I can go’. I really like boots because you really never know when you might need to hop a fence or like run or anything – you’re prepared. I’m an advocate for boots, I’m all over it.”
Er, right … what’s the coolest celebrity party you’ve been to? ”Puff [P. Diddy] always throws some cool parties. I have to say his New Year’s parties are always really good. They are star studded events, normally I get there around 11-11.30pm but they last until 8am. They serve you breakfast and they have all the drinks you can imagine. Everyone’s dressed up really nice, super cool and you meet a lot of people, it’s awesome. They play everything, popular music and some old throwbacks. Puff is a great host as usual, you always see him so many times throughout the night and he gets up dancing. They always have a dance floor that’s colourful with lights and they always set it up outside so it’s really cool.”
Who’s the most famous person in your phonebook? “I think that’s pretty obvious [Justin Bieber]. I have quite a few. I’m not able to say who.”
