What is your most favorite place you have traveled to and why? —@sagelopez

It used to be Florence, Italy, but now I would have to say Ghana, Africa. The people are beautiful and so sweet. It was such a life-changing experience to go out there.

What makes you feel sexy? —@kjones4483

When I have a fresh cut and a tan.

What made you cut off all your hair? —@cashmerexdollaz

When I was a little girl I used to love Sinéad O’Connor’s video and song “Nothing Compares 2 U.” I knew I wanted to look as beautiful as she did one day, so when I was old enough to make my own decisions, at 19, I cut it off, and it’s been over eight years now.

Was the decision to cut your hair easy to do, or was it something you went back and forth on? —@cashmerexdollaz

I knew I wanted to do it really bad, but I was scared. As a woman your hair is your confidence. But once I did it, I never went back.

When and what was your first tattoo? —@bbystar13

I was 15 and I got paw prints on my upper thigh. It was kind of a fad in Philly and all the girls had them.

Do you plan on getting another tattoo? What would it be of? —@bbystar13

I want to get two full sleeves eventually, but I just don’t know what I want yet.

What’s your ethnic background? —@poetic812001

My mom is Cape Verdean—West African—and my father is Italian and Irish.

How do you manage to ignore the haters and the negativity and remain confident? —@sweetie1n83

It’s not easy—I won’t lie. But I choose to keep my life positive. I’m not perfect, so I ask God to forgive me all the time and thank him for helping me grow into a better woman. That gets me through everything.

Is the fame something that just happened? —@sommer.harden

Yes—I didn’t even try. Honestly, I guess people just found me interesting.

Which tattoo of yours was the most painful? —@Brittany_Kourlinis

Definitely the flower on my lower stomach; that’s a very sensitive area. I teared up a little.

Tripp NYC body suit; Crux earrings. As a child, did you always want to be a model? —@georgiaclarke_09

Oh, no—I was a total dork! I didn’t think I was going to grow up to be pretty. I guess that’s why I’m humble now. I always wanted to be a marine biologist. I have a fascination with whales so I wanted to study them … maybe one day I will.

What’s it like being with Wiz [Khalifa]? —@bbystar13

It’s the best feeling in the world! He’s my best friend. He’s super silly and we have a blast together.

What are your thoughts on couples showing their love for each other through ink? —@m.nguyen12

Wiz and I did it, but we want to be together forever. So I guess really make sure you want to be with that person forever, and try to wait until you’re older, when you can make better decisions. I suggest getting a small tattoo, just in case you break up—then it’s an easy cover-up.

Have you ever regretted your big arm piece? Does it ever interfere with wardrobe choices? —@kynawinton

No. I love my roses and I think it goes with everything I wear.

How do you keep your body so fit? —@kjones4483

Well, my schedule is really busy, but I try to work out as much as I can. And when I’m too tired to work out, I just try my hardest to eat right. It’s really hard sometimes because I grew up in Philly with cheesesteaks and hoagies, so I love good fattening food.

Have you found that having body art has restricted your career goals in any way? —@whyskeylullabye

No, not at all. But when I get my sleeves, it probably will be a problem.

Do you have a certain tattoo artist that is your go-to? —@whyskeylullabye

Yes! His name is Tuki [Carter], out of Atlanta.

What advice would you give to women who want to get into the modeling business? —@479***9205

Just have very thick skin. People are very critical and mean. They will try to tear you apart.

Why are sunglasses your favorite thing? —@presley.olivia

That has been my number-one accessory for forever. I don’t feel complete without them.

I’m only 17 but … I was diagnosed with ovarian cancer this summer. I’m not comparing you to a cancer patient, but hopefully when I grow some hair I can dye it like yours! You’re such an inspiration—you seriously give me hope to rock my bald head! How do you keep up with the whole platinum blond hair? —@jvarela242

Wow, sweetheart, I’m so sorry to hear that. But I’m happy that I can help inspire you. To get my style, you would have to go to a beauty supply store and get powder bleach and 40-volume developer; mix them up and apply! You’ll be a blond Rosebud in no time!
