Although the supermodel, socialite, and video vixen era wasn’t perfect, it needs to make an inclusive and diverse resurgence. I need to see fun, excitement, charm, sensuality, and glamour that this era has been lacking lately due to the many lackluster male and female celebrities that have been relentlessly pushed by the gatekeepers of the entertainment industry.
I know I’ve touched on the subject before, but there’s something about the aura and sensuality of 2000s video vixens that is absolutely admirable. Despite the raunchy and and ultra sexualized connotation that comes with the term “video vixen” I see video girls as neo-socialites in a weird way. Women with strong influences in pop culture, who are fond of social activities and entertainment. These are women who paved the way for the “IG Baddies” we see on social media today. That ultra feminine aesthetic, that bad bitch mentality, that “keep pussy expensive” mindset, we have none other than Karrine Steffans to thank for that. It’s the Melyssa Fords, the Buffie the Bodies, the LaShontae Heckards of the world that have given me the confidence to be that bad bitch I am today.
