BlackMen Digital Interview: Tia Mone

Thursday 17th, March 2011

BM: Why do you think you should be a BlackMen Magazine Model?

TM: I'm a total package... (intelligent, beautiful and determined).

TM: Yes.



BM: Were you always this amazingly curvy?

TM: The older I became the more my body became more womanly.



BM: What disadvantages do you feel you have as an urban model?

TM: I don't want for anyone to believe that this is it for me, because some models become trapped in this game. Its very easy to become labelled and overlooked.



BM: Do you think that having size 40 or more hips inhibit most models?

No, its all about how you carry it, and what’s your plans for your career. Nothing is easy.



BM: Do you have a commercial head shot?

TM: Yes, I do.



BM: Do you understand that without these things on your resume that you career, if any, might be short?

TM: Yes, I do understand. I also have to have the drive and mindset to think outside the box.



BM: Favorite drink?

TM: Homemade sweet tea or lemonade.



BM: Favorite food?

TM: I love so many different types of foods, but if I had to choose it would be stewed chicken with rice and peas.



BM: Mood Music?

TM: Neo soul and R&B (Erykah Badu, Jill Scott, Musiq Soulchild... etc).



BM: Favorite Vacation Spot?

TM: Jamaica.



BM: Favorite place to be kissed?

TM: On my neck.



BM: Favorite body part on your man?

TM: Shoulders and back.



BM: Favorite place to kiss him?

TM: Neck and/or back.



BM: How often do you measure yourself?

TM: Every blue moon unless I'm trying to accomplish a certain size by a particular time.



BM: Are you proud of your curves?

 TM: Definitely.



BM: What curvaceous celebrity do you identify as a role model for success?

TM: Kerry Washington and Tyra Banks.



BM: Have you invested money into your career?

TM: Yes..Nothing comes free.



BM: Do or would you work a 9 to 5 until your career took off?

TM: Of course, I still have to live.



BM: If you had an agent, would you refer all assignments to them as in your agreement, or do you feel you should take some work without informing them?

I feel that there should be trust and communication between you and an agent. Nothing should be one sided and both should be bringing something to the table.
