BlackMen Digital Interview: Jillisia Lynn

Thursday 17th, March 2011

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

JL: It would be an honor and more than appreciated to be a BlackMen’s model. One of my goals is to be featured in the magazine. I believe that with my multi-ethnic look I would appeal to many different readers and cultures. I feel I have I have a decent following to help promote, including my many female fans that I’m blessed to have support me. I would prove to be a great addition to your lovely roster of models.  



BM: Did you market yourself to fans on

JL: Yes, I’m asking for my five stars and I’m promoting BMD every day.



BM: Were you always this amazingly curvy?

JL: I’ve looked the same size and all since seventh grade. Before that I hadn’t developed yet.



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

JL: I feel as though I can cross over and work both sides. I’m not restricted to just being an urban model, as some curvy models may be. The only disadvantage I can see are the common stereotypes that must be overcome.



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

JL: I think it may limit you, but there is a huge market for such curvy women and times are changing. Thick is In.



BM: Where do you train if you are acting?

JL: I’ve trained with Larry. B. Scott and Bobby Chance.



BM: Do you have a commercial head shot?

JL: Yes.



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

JL: Yes, I understand and of course, not having a updated resume as well as a current head shot will discourage someone from wanting to book you as a talent.



BM: Favorite drink?

JL: Gatorade.



BM: Favorite food?

JL: Cheese pizza.



BM: Mood Music?

JL: R&B.



BM: Favorite vacation spot?

JL: Miami, I love the beach and it’s close to some of my family.



BM: Favorite place to be kissed?

JL: On my face and neck.



BM: Favorite body part on your man?

JL: His back.



BM: Favorite place to kiss him?

JL: His stomach.



BM: How often do you measure yourself?

JL: Every month.



BM: Are you proud of your curves?

JL: I love them. I’m blessed to be shaped the way I am. Most of my family is obese, so I know what it’s like to appreciate some thickness.



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

JL: Queen Latifah, she’s an incredibly talented entertainer and she’s comfortable in her own skin.



BM: Have you invested money into your career?

JL: Yes you have to invest in yourself to get anywhere in life.



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

JL: Yes, I’ve worked since I was fiftteen years old. Perri’s Pizza, Aeropostle, Holister’s, etc. I was a manager at a T-Mobile store at the age  of 18. I’ve been bartending the last three years while modeling. 



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?

JL: If I’m signed to an exclusive contract then all work would go through that agency. As I’m non-exclusive with my agency I sometimes get work that’s not through my agency. I always make sure to get their opinion and approval of anyone I’m working with so that they are aware of my bookings.



BM: How do you feel about magazines like Elle and Vogue, do you think they should feature more curvaceous women?

JL: They absolutely should. As I said earlier, thick is in! I believe if they featured more curvaceous women that their readership would expand. We all like fashion and we want to be able to view images of models that we can relate to.



BM: How do you plan to change the game?

JL: That information is to be shown not told. With my personality, drive and determination I plan to accomplish my goals as well as becoming a role model and inspiring people with the obstacles. I’ve had to overcome. I’ve been blessed with amazing family, friends and supporters to encourage me, while I’m just a player in the game until I’m successful and winning.
