BOSSIP Interview With Tori Brixx
You’ve probably seen her piercing eyes and bangin’ body dance across your timeline more than a few times, but Tori Brixx is making the leap from Instragram fame to real industry experience. And the transition seem to be going pretty smoothly…it was just announced today that she’s the first woman to be represented by Amber Rose’s new management company:
BOSSIP caught up with the model to talk about her new role on Nick Cannon’s Wild ‘N Out and what’s next for her as she tackles acting and her own business ventures…
So for those who aren’t familiar with you, tell us a little about who you are:
Well I’m Tori Brixx. I’m New to LA, just moved here. I’m from South Carolina and I got into modeling through a photo shoot with a well-known photographer (facet studios). The pics just got really popular, and people asked “who is she?” a lot, so it just went from there.
Now, I’ve done work with Fashion Nova, Blac Chyna’s fashion line, and Khloe’s [upcoming] jean line — more like a face/figure for those brands.
So you’re on the new season of Wild ‘N Out. How was that experience for you?
The energy was so crazy on set! It was very funny, everyone was hilarious. I loved having the the opportunity to work with Nick — he’s such a professional and there was a lot to learn from him. One thing that stood out to me…we prayed before every show and that made me feel much more comfortable. We’d shoot three shows a day, and would meet to pray before each one. But it was also a great experience and wonderful opportunity to meet a lot of new people
So what’s up next for you? What projects do you have that you can speak about?
Well I’m currently visiting labs for my new lipstick line. I’m so excited to have my own business! Also, Terrence J hooked me up with a great, well known acting coach, so I’m doing sessions there and going on auditions.
Now, you’ve gained buzz and popularity through Instagram. How do you feel about being classified as an “IG Model?”
I don’t mind coming in through Instagram. Honestly, we’re on out phones/social media more than watching TV! I will say that people who say, “Oh, she’s an ‘IG model'” tend throw you into a box, and categorize you. But, I’m happy to be coming in through that media. It’s just a new time.
Clearly IG modeling pays off, because it’s just landed her a contract with Amber Rose’s new management company! Mind you, Amber herself is learning from Nick Cannon, so we’re sure Tori is in great hands:
NICE! Hit the flip to see a few of the photos that sent Tori on her way…
