You are world leading media personality, Recording Artist, Songwriter, DJ and Actress. Introduce us to a day in your remarkable multi-dimensional lifestyle.
Wow you really made that sound amazing, lol. I’m a prankster sometimes. Hmm… Well makeup and hair are a big part of it, mostly because I do photo shoots almost daily to ensure I have enough up to date content. Outside of that, music ideas just hit me at any time of the day (kinda like a good sex flashback) it just comes out of nowhere. I do sing like most people during my daily showers, which is where I naturally create melodies and sometimes in the middle of the night, I just wake up with what I like to think are brilliant ideas and I write them down or sing them into my iPhone recorder.
Acting is something I’ve always done since childhood. It is also a career that came to me organically, and when I have to prepare for a role, I read the script, take a moment to absorb my character, then I link with one of my actor friends or coach to run my scenes and work out the kinks before shooting ever begins.
DJing is an extension of my love for music. It is usually a scheduled event (in the USA or abroad) and booked through my team at Blackskirt Entertainment. It’s that thing that drives me and keeps me sewn into pop and urban culture, and enables me to identify and create relevant music as a Recording Artist. As DJ “ILL NANA”, I have to listen to and play the hottest music, which enables me to see first handedly what moves people and test my own records while I’m at it. That is a powerful realization. Once you figure that out, you can win over the masses, and from there, one DJ performance begets a Stage performance, and so on and so forth. At least in my life, thankfully to the highest above.
What exercises comprise your fitness regime or workout routine?
I like to work out early in the morning before the sun comes up. I start out with cardio, doing 1 minute intervals of Jogging vs. Sprinting around the park for about 45mins to an hour. I do 3 sets of front and side crunches for my abs 3 times a day (I exercise my stomach every day because it’s a large muscle), I love the stairs for my legs and butt muscles and do it for 30 mins, as well as the adductor and abductor machine to tone my thighs. For my arms, I use free weights for my biceps, triceps, shoulders, and back. At this time, I am currently trying to build up my pushup game, lol.
Do you take some special diet or have a strict menu that you follow to remain healthy and physically fit?
Though many may call it a special diet, I call it a Vegan lifestyle. I was raised vegetarian my whole life and have been Vegan for the last 10 years. Within the last year, I seem to be naturally leaning toward a RAW diet, which may be a result of me being on the go, so it’s faster to grab some almonds, fruit, blend up a smoothie, or buy cold-pressed juice and a salad while I’m out in the world. With all of that said, as a vegetarian or vegan, always make sure you also take a multi-vitamin supplement pack to ensure your body does not become nutritionally deficient, due to being a non-meat eater. Personally, I take GNC Whole Body vitamins for Women.
