"Get on the grind like clockwork
Move that behind like clockwork
Keep it coming on time like clockwork
Get that clockwork (homie) make that clockwork (shorty) . . . "
-- Julez Santana, "Clockwork"
Nikki "Hoopz" Alexander's 15 minutes fame has officially begun.
The 23-year-old Detroit hottie is featured in the May 2006 issue of King magazine (with R&B vixen Kelis on the cover), which arrives on newsstands this week.
Of course, this obviously means that Hoopz didn't win Flavor Flav's heart on his hit reality
disaster series, Flavor of Love. Oh well.
Hoopz looks much more feminine in her four-page photo layout for King than she did on the series. And fellas, there's a nice backshot of her, too. So cop that issue!
Here's an excerpt from the Q&A interview in the magazine:
KING: Let's be real -- Flavor Flav is no heartthrob. Either love truly is blind, or you gave the best sightless performance since Jamie [Foxx] became Ray [Charles].Now with Hoopz appearing in King magazine, I'm wondering what will New York do to utilize her 15 minutes of fame. Will she appear next in Smooth magazine?
NIKKI ALEXANDER: [laughs] I really liked him! I knew from the time I met him that we'd be real close. His personality and genuine attitude were attractive from jump. He's a down-to-earth person, gets along with everyone and is sincere to the mug!
K: Damn, the world's greatest hype-man had you sprung, huh?
NA: He surprised me, like "Damn, I might actually fall in love with this dude!" He made me feel so comfortable and appreciated. Not many guys do that. Of course, that comes with age. He knows how to work his shit. Since he has been on this earth so long, he knows how to make a woman feel good. He definitely could school a lot of guys.
K: Screw Hitch; sounds like VH1 needs to make Flav happen. So is it fair to say your type is "to-the-bone older dudes with gold [grillz]"?
NA: You don't have to be the cutest motherfucker to bag girls. As long as you have a good personality, treat me with respect, and I don't have to worry about no bullshit like you cheating or whatever, then you'll turn me on. Sexiness is much more than looks.
In the meantime, I will be glue to my idiot box tonight, watching the season finale of Flavor of Love on VH1 at 10 p.m. ET.
Flavor of Love will probably go down in TV history as the craziest reality series on network television -- and rightfully so. It was truly a spectacle.
I'm going to miss FOL after tonight.
And for the last time: Flaaavooor Flaaav!
