“I do have a bikini body, and I’m proud of it,” she said. “So if I get pegged as a bikini girl, that’s fine, and that can still translate into acting or other areas. But, no, I don’t wanna be doing bikini shoots my whole life.”
She also discussed why she thought the video of her dancing at a Clippers game went viral (see that video below). “People want to see personality,” she explained. “Otherwise they make assumptions, like, [she gestures toward her breasts] ‘Yeah, she’s pretty, but she’s probably a b*tch.’ That’s why everyone likes the video. It’s me. It wasn’t planned for Twitter or YouTube. It’s, like, real.”
