Showcasing talented females doing their thing in the industry, each month the GoodFellaz pick the “Bad Girl of the Month”. Featuring Models, TV/ Radio Personalities, Actresses & Female Entrepreneurs, the “Bad Girl of the Month” is a combination of Beauty, Brains & Hustle.
This month’s “Bad Girl of the Month” is the smokin’ hot Lauren Quatavia. Raised in NJ & NY area, the super-sexy Ms. Quatavia is both a Model & an aspiring Actress, and has been in numerous videos during the last couple of years.
Recently GoodFellaz TV’s own Tommy Gunz recently got a chance to sit down with Lauren during a photoshoot, where we talked about everything: Why she may be giving up Modeling, Acting, the Miami Heat, her Turn-on’s, and more. Check out her exclusive interview below.
Q: So where are you from Lauren?
A: I’ve been here-and-there, but for the most part you could say I’m from Long Island, NY
Q: Okay, Strong Island in the house! Well Lauren you’re definitely hot, how long have you been modeling for?
A: Hmmm, how do I answer this?? Well I did modeling for a year and some change, but it’s not really my thing. I really want to be behind-the-scenes; doing event-planning and casting. I don’t think urban modeling is for me, I’m not really beat for the whole “video vixen” thing. At the time ,I did it more for fun and networking.
Q: No doubt. What was your favorite part about the Modeling game?
A: Well, I do love the perks! Getting the VIP treatment, and not having to pay for anything (laughs).
Q: Haha, I feel that. What was the Worst part about the Modeling game?
A: Ugghhh where do I begin (laughs). I would say the people that you have to deal with and the stuff you had to go through. Me personally, I’d rather do something glamorous instead of taking pics bent-over half-naked. Some of these dudes can be maaaad creepy and perverted sometimes too (rolls eyes).
Q: Ok, so you’ve done the Modeling thing for a minute. What’s next for you?
A: I want be an Actress, ‘cuz acting is more of a talent-thing; you can do so many things, and play all types of characters. It’s more like Art than just being pretty. And that’s where most of the money is too, main-stream acting!
Q: Get that money ma! (Laughs). So the fellaz across the globe wanna know: Single or Taken?
A: Ha-ha. I’m Single. Single by choice. Honestly I don’t want to be distracted right now, I need to be focused, and with dudes it’s always a headache. Guys have issues (laughs).
Q: (Laughs). No comment. What’s your sign?
A: I’m a Pisces baby.
Q: Ok, would you say that the characteristics of a Pisces apply to you?
A: No I totally disagree with the characteristics, they make it seem like Pisces is the weakest sign on earth. Wack (laughs).
Q: You know it’s football season right now. Do you like sports? What sport? Who’s your team?
A: I am a Basketball fan actually. The Miami Heat are my team. I’m not really a big football fan.
A: Of course! They are gonna win tit all this year (fist pumps).
Q: So let’s talk music for a minute, who are you feeling musically right now?
A: Hmmmm. I like a lot of different artists, with me it’s about what catches me; a lot of music doesn’t have any meaning these days. Drake is cool. I’m a hip-hop/R&b fan, but I like a little pop too. I like some of the old Lady Gaga stuff.
Tommy Gunz: Lady Gaga?? Let me find out… (Laughs).
Lauren: I’m serious (laughs).
Q: Let’s switch gears for a minute. What are some of your Turn-on’s about the opposite sex??
A: Turn-on’s, let me see (smiles). I like someone who has goals, who is trying to better themselves. I don’t want the drug dealer on the corner. I like guys who are funny and spontaneous. They have to be taller than me too. A dude definitely has to be at least 5’6. I’ve never dated other races yet, but I’m always down to try something new (winks).
A: Nope. I’m 5 foot, we can’t be the same height if I’m in heels (laughs).
Q: True. So what are some of your Turn-off’s?
A: Oh boy, where to begin (laughs). Well someone who lacks ambition. Insecure guys are wack. Don’t blow my phone up, don’t act too thirsty. And no style is a turn-off. A guy has to know how to dress.
Q: What was the Worst Date you’ve ever been on?
A: Hmmm. Good question. I can’t honestly remember a really bad date. But then again I haven’t been on many dates (covers eyes).
Tommy Gunz: What?? You haven’t been on a lot of dates? I don’t believe that.
Lauren: (laughing hysterically) I’m serious.
Q: These dudes are slacking! So what makes Lauren feel extra sexy?
A: Getting dressed up makes me feel extra sexy. My heels of course, and getting ‘dolled-up’, I luv it!
A: I’m gonna go with Boy shorts (winks).
Q: No doubt. So what can’t you live without?
A: My heels. I own 1 pair of sneakers, the rest of my shoes are all heels. I don’t think after 21 or 22 females should be going crazy for Jordans (laughs). Not a good look.
Q: Fashion-wise, what’s hot for the ladies right now?
A: Well I like classy, trendy, sexy things. It can be short, but it still has to be classy. Nothing slutty (laughs).
Q: What’s NOT a good look for the ladies fashion-wise in 2011?
A: I’m not into the whole ‘leggings’ thing. You can wear them in the house, but if you wear them outside ,it kinda looks tacky. And going to the club with boy-shorts or ‘fish-nets’ or underwear is NOT cute (laughing hysterically).
Q: (Laughing). That’s too funny. So who would be your Celebrity Crush?
A: Wow that’s a tough one. Ummm I guess, D. Wade maybe? (Laughs). I am a Heat fan afterall. Or maybe this new rapper named Kirko Bangz. He’s kinda fine, he’s got the accent and tattoos going on (wink).
Q: What do you know about Tats? Speaking of Tats, do you have any Tattoos?
A: Well….(laughs)..I actually have 1 tattoo, but it doesn’t count. It’s getting removed.
Q: Okay. Would you consider yourself more of Party-head or Homebody?
A: Well I love a good party when I do decide to go out, but I don’t like to go out everyday. So I guess you could say I’m “half-and-half”.
Q: Oh really Ms. “Half-and-half”? Do you drink? What’s your drink of choice?
Q: Tell us a Funny Fact about yourself that most people wouldn’t know?
A: (Smiles). I like to do a lot a silly stuff actually, I’m really just silly in general. Oh, and I’m really 4’11, not quite 5’ feet. Shhhhh, don’t tell anybody (laughs).
Q: So what advice do you have for other chicks trying to get into the Modeling game?
A: Well they should be smart, and make decisions that are positive and NOT degrading. Don’t let other people tell you what you should be doing for your career, especially if you know it’s not the path that you wanna go down.
Q: So tell us about any upcoming projects you have in the works?
A: Right now I’m helping out with casting for some upcoming projects, I just did a video a couple of weeks ago for an artist named Cash Flow, be on the lookout for his “Hey Lover” video.
Q: No doubt. Any shoutouts before we go?
A: Shoutout to GoodFellaz TV, everybody I’ve worked with, and everybody who supports. I’m bad with shout-outs, I always forget somebody (laughs).
