Cassie’s VIBE Vixen Cover Shoot Will Leave You Foaming At The Mouth
Cassie is sexier than ever in her latest cover shoot for the digital edition of VIBE Vixen. And while the singing stunner is a vision of perfect, the only lady on Diddy’s arm admits that even she went through an awkward stage.
“I had my funny-looking stage,” Cassie admits of her tween years. “I think everyone had it as a kid. I remember every star, every birthday wish blowing out a candle, I would always wish boys would like me because I used to get made fun of a little bit.”
Cassie wasn’t an ugly duckling for long, though, and by 12, she was already a swan and began modeling. “I did Cosmo Girl and they do a beauty issue every year and I was [shooting] for skin,” she recalled. “It was a little bit risqué for 16. I had my little boy shorts on and I was covered up, kneeling down. That came out and people saw it, even my parents were shocked to finally see what I had grown into. That was kind of a pivotal moment.”
These days, Cassie is nothing but confident and that brazen attitude allowed her to talk that shit on her latest mixtape, RockaByeBaby.
“Most of the things that have happened to me have been very organic,” the 27-year-old singer explains. “The first thing that I actually put out was the ‘All Gold, All Girls (Remix)’ with Trina and Lola Monroe. That was where the sound kind of started. The first song I recorded for the actual mixtape was “Numb” and then I added Rick Ross to it. It was a vibe that I was creating and the story came to be from the attitude of the songs. I was talking a lot of shit. I was really putting myself out there but I love the fact that I finally got the chance to do something with the attitude that I have. You hold back to a certain extent when everybody is saying, ‘This needs to go to a chart and that’s the only way it can be successful.’ But no, you can be successful by making music that people love. We got over 2 million downloads on this mixtape that I never ever imagined at all.”
