The singer told MTV that she was cast because of how well she presented on camera. “They picked two girls based on the pictures, then they came and then we picked the best one who looked best on camera. It was kind of a group thing ’cause she was really beautiful and on camera it was this cool vibe,” he explained. “She looked kind of like Pocahontas.”
