Hometown: New Jersey
Works at: Magic City
Casting story: Rihanna came into Magic City after her concert in Atlanta. I was dancing and she was throwing money, but I didn’t think nothing of it. Then a couple of weeks later, someone called me up saying that Rihanna wanted me to come to LA to dance in her video. I was like, This is not real life, it’s gotta be spam. I got on a flight the next day to shoot the video.
On-set experience: I really really enjoyed myself. It was good to talk to Rihanna in person and see what she’s all about. You always hear this stuff on TV and you read about her, but when you sit down and have a conversation with her, it’s just amazing. A couple of the dancers were professional dancers that dance in choreographed videos all the time. I was like, Yo, I’m just a dancer, I work in strip clubs, this is new to me. I do videos but not of these standards. This is a Rihanna video, are you kidding me?
Do you think the video is empowering to women? I guess it’s empowering for me, because of what I do. "Pour It Up" gets people hyped in the club and makes them want to spend money on me. When this song dropped, it became the biggest song in every strip club. When I'm out on the stage for my feature dance, its the number one song that I dance to. It makes the club go crazy and spend money.
Who tips better, ladies or dudes? The men. I have some female customers that come in and spend lots of money, but it does not compare to what a man spends. He comes in the strip club, he sees big booty, he sees half-naked women and he’s gonna go crazy. The men are gonna come in and give you their whole paycheck! It's sad.
What’s your special move? I don’t have a specialty, I just twerk. Rihanna loves when I make my cheeks go up and down separately, so I guess that's my specialty.
What did you think of Ri's dancing? RiRi was good! She asked for some pointers, so I taught her how to make her booty go up and down separately. She was getting it!
