Tell us about your approach to being in front of the camera, what makes you comfortable and how do you get there?
“At first being in front of the camera I started to pick myself apart but that turns into confidence and knowing what I should and should not do what looks good and what doesn’t. It took me about a year to be able to fully embrace who I was and who I wanted to be… Now I am very comfortable in front of the camera!”
People would be surprised to know that….

To say that 50 Cent knows how to put on an event would be, in a word, understating the obvious. When 50 Cent puts on an event, he makes sure that it is the stuff that dreams — indeed, legends — are made of. And tonight’s debut of the SMS by 50 line was no exception to this obvious rule.
The superstar rapper held court at the James Hotel in NYC (G-Note flagship artist Hot Rod was also in attendance) as beautiful models (courtesy of NYC’s own Nikki Rich Models) walked around the rooftop, poolside deck (with an absolutely stunning view of NYC, to boot) offering various styles of the luxurious headphones for each of the industry movers & shakers — and fellow press corps — in attendance.
Ever gracious, “Fif” indulged every interview and photo request, eager to share his vision of — in his words — a “new business model” that SMS (and, latterly, Street King — and, by translation, G-Unit) looks to adopt. “For each set of headphones we sell,” he said, “Feeding America will provide 250 meals for the hungry in America.”
It is this cognizance — this evolution to bring about revolution — of all his blessings that prompted the man born Curtis Jackson to make a difference in the world as he saw it. “When I first came onto the scene, I did rap to be famous,” he told Kink-E Magazine editor Marabelle Blue. “But now that I am in a position to make a difference, I am using my fame to bring awareness to this persistent problem in America…and the world.”

See Marcy Diamond in Motion here 🙂 marcydiamond
We enjoy learning more about ladies that aspire for more than just modeling/vixen status. Your career path seems to be taking you in many directions. Can you tell us about some of your upcoming projects and which ones excite you the most?
I am doing a tv show called The Lick and it’s still in the works. I am supposed to be filming some more scenes with my on camera boyfriend Samuel “caffiene” Monroe, Jr. He’s a great actor. I can’t wait. I am waiting for the installment with me in it to hit youtube.com. So, I can see it! I am also doing a movie called Dirty Game, it’s an awesome story with a lot of great people in it as well. I did a commercial just recently and tomorrow I am doing a music video shoot. I love acting, that is a biggie for me!
From reading your previous interviews, it’s obvious you have a great sense of humor, were you the class clown in school?
No, I hated popular kids and went out my way to be as unpopular as I could and to fuck with them. I’ve always been down for the underdog. So, if I saw someone that no one liked, that is who I became friends with, it was so odd, looking back. I am still the same way.
You’ve also mentioned that during your childhood you grew up in a scary environment/neighborhood, where exactly did you grow up? And has that upbringing made you street smart or helped you with making career choices?
I grew up in Richmond Heights Miami, Fl. I loved the neighborhood, My grandpa had retired from the Air Force in the sixties, he was not gonna move when the neigborhood was not looking so white anymore. lol So, I did get in a lot of fights. I didn’t want to but girls would plan fights, it was like playing kickball after school. Had a boy pull a knife on me in the front yard, I saw a friend getting attacked right in front of me and there wasn’t anything I could do. I was 10. We were walking home from school and this guy stopped on his bike and told her he wanted to talk to her. He came up to her, grabbed her, took her over to a ditch and started fondling her. He was then trying to get her pants off, and I just remember her screaming. Then he ran over to me to hit me so I would shut up, it was horrible. Some guy came running out of his house, but Miami is nuts man. lol There is so much that happened, I distrust everyone. I always look over my shoulder.
You also have an athletic background, formerly gymnastics and track, were you a tomboy growing up? And when did you realize that your lovely face and body were starting to get attention?
I was asked to take some pics for a Seventeen magazine contest. I won for Florida and then when my pics without my height on them got to NY, they called the photographer and he was asked how tall I was. When he told them 5’3, they disqualified me, The minimum height requirement was 5’9. I knew that, I was just thinking somehow I could change things. yeah right. lol
You once lost a competition for Seventeen because of your height, but Urban models don’t seem to be affected by their height at all. Do you feel vindicated that as an urban model you are appreciated for your physical stature and features.?
Yes, finally there is somewhere for the girl that everyone would say to me , “Marcy, you’re so cute, it’s just sad you can’t lose more weight, in your “problem area” Now, I laugh about my problem area!
Along with your outstanding hourglass figure, you also have a pretty face and natural beauty. Where do your features come from and how do you stay in shape?
Well, all the women in my family have like smaller heads. I think it’s funny but my grandma said, “Be happy you’re Danish, danish women look like dolls, with little features. I didn’t give a shit about what she was talking about, nor did I even know. But when I got older and started looking at my family members, I was like, “that’s true.” They all look doll like. Well, the women anyhow.
Being so versatile often leads to being a part of many types of productions. What kind of shoots/work do you enjoy the most?
I love acting. I love comedy. I would love to start doing skits and I think I am going to. I love to make fun of myself and people around me are like, “Marcy, you’re so weird.” Ask Melissa Irish Brown, we always fuck with each other online. But for real, she’s a bitch and I have to deal with her accordingly. It’s weird, it’s hard for me to be friends with soft chics. I like to play around, no one getting their feelings hurt. ya know. I love her though! She’s funny.
We (Kushions) know that you have an unique and versatile resume but can you share with our readers some of your credits ?
Reebok Commercial (one of 20 hip hop dancers on Ocean Drive in miami, where it was taped), Sogebank Commercial, (airing in Haiti), The Lick Tv Series, Dirty Game, the movie. And sang two songs on a compelation cd for Lasalle Gabriel of SLR Records. He is an amazing mentor for me!Gymnast, I danced for a hip hop dance team that was started by an ex-charger cheerleader of three years. I have written for newspapers and magazines. I can act, sing, dance, write and model. I think I can communicate well too!
You’ve been in quite a few magazines, the cover girl and host for a mixtape, and now television. Can you tell us some of your long term profession goals?
To be on a show that I love to work on.
Do you have any tattoos or piercings?
No tattoos, don’t like em. I like em on everyone else, but the commitment is my issue, I can’t move it around or change it.
You’ve been modeling for a good portion of your life and you are trained to be confident and sexy on set, but have you ever been afraid before shooting? What techniques do you have to handle the butterflies?
I am always nervous to shoot with someone new, sometimes I put off the shoot a couple of times if I don’t know them. I am such a dork. I paid Cesar Varela to shoot me like a year and a half ago and I still have not shot with him. I really need to get on that.
People would be surprised to know that ___________?
I love spiders. I have had a ton of different spiders, Chilean Rose, (the friendliest) I had a Salmon Pink, It’s a bird eating tarantula. That is the second largest. I really want a Goliath Bird Eating Tarantula. I saw one the other day for $300. That mother fucker is meaaaaaaaaaan! I like them cause they’re mean. But you can’t handle them. I would get the salmon pink spider out of the cage and I didn’t use gloves once and all the hairs they flick off their back, got into my forearms and i was in such pain for like a day or two.
Your idea of relaxing is?
I don’t relax, ever. I just stop working when I literally fall over. last night was a Friday night. I stayed in, (I’m a recluse) I worked on videos and editing them and I got done at 5:30 this morning. My dogs woke me up and I was up by 8:30 and I am back at this again. I think I am seriously addicted to work. I am addicted to making it. I won’t stop. I can’t stop, it’s something that drives you when it’s a passion, you can’t stop, no matter, how broke you are, no matter if there is no internet, no matter if you have no computer, you find a way. I been there. I am not too proud or fake to say that I have had a tough year. I fell and tore the meniscus and had to have surgery, it took me ten months to fully recover, it didn’t go so well, the surgery and all. I can’t wait to come back from it and THAT, I will! Kinda nice that a settlement they’re giving me will help things too. It’s getting invested right back into me!
You’ve got front row tickets to see your favorite artist. Who is it and why?
Wayne Dyer. Deepok Chopra. I don’t do music very much. I love it, but I am about energy and spirituality and keeping my insides clean and free of waste. It may sound corny, but that is what I always watch on youtube, Wayne Dyer..
Your favorite getaway spot?
I wish I could say I had one. I don’t do anything but work, so it would be the bathtub, that is the only time I am not in front of my computer or shooting.
How does Hip Hop music impact your daily life and your work? Whats your favorite song of the moment?
I love TANK! I can’t stop listening to his cd. R&B is my favorite. And my favorite rapper is Mystikal.

Smells. I am so big on smells and clean nails. EEEEESH!
Tell us one of the exciting things left to do on Marcy’s list ?
Go to Denmark! I want to see it.
What’s the craziest/funniest/or most silly thing a fan/admirer has done to get your attention?
Called me a bitch and told me to fuck off. I was taken back. I actually wrote him back and said that was rude, then he said, “Good, it worked. You wrote me” then I learned people will do that just for you to say something. You can actually just say hi, I am not a diva.
Who have you enjoyed working with the most? And name someone you would love to work with?
Lasalle Gabriel, he has such a good soul. He is just so pure, you can hear it when you speak to him on the phone!
Tell us what kinds of environments and clothing make you feel the most sexy?
i LOVE juicy couture sweatpants, i have them in every color, but I seriously need to stop! I wear them too much! I just got sent a bunch of clothes from Apple Bottoms, this is my fifth box, I love them and their clothes!
Your aka is the Miami Diamond, can you tell us about your love for the 305 and what you enjoy most about representing Miami ?
I love that city, a photographer gave me that name. He said, “you’re name is Marcy Diamond and you’re from Miami, you’re the Miami Diamond.” I was like, “Oh, ok, sounds catchy. Then I was getting called Marcy Miami, so then I made a gmail account with that name.
Any parting words or people you would like to thank?
I love positive people and people who give love, I am trying to be good at that too. I am not perfect, I do get bitchy, but I am trying hard to be a good influence and be good to people. I love people who support, not that you can’t come to me with your negative energy, cause you can. I just won’t write you back, lol Thanks to Lasalle Gabriel, Surveillance Anthony, Chris Larceny, Crazy Eights at hardbodytv.com, all the mags that I have worked with, and City Lites.

Genetics, I was a Blueprint, my mother is the master mind behind the whole operation, she analyzed all the female family members on my fathers side, compared and contrasted it from all the females on hers.

i hate to say it because it doesn’t define who i am but; my hourglass figure, that’s if I were speaking on terms of from a distance. Up close and personal it would be my eyes and lips.

But i would really love to do something to give back to our youth, help keep them in school, off drugs and off the street. Give them hope, be able to show them that there is other ways to make it in life. That you don’t have to be slinging drugs on the street as long as you stay focus and stay in school.
Do You Have Any Tattoos or Piercings?
I do have multiple ear piercings, a navel ring but thats about it. No tattoos, at least not yet.
i’m nervous almost before every shoot right up until the point my foot hits the stage, i walk on set, cameras are rolling and lights are flashing. at that very moment i cant really explain but something takes over and all the nervous energy jumps out my body and i walk out like i have a “S” on my chest with full confidence ready to give it all that i’ve got.
