Da Brat reveals her feminine side in a ‘summer sexy’ shoot for VIBE.com. The So So Def rapper, born Shawntae Harris, ditched her usual tomboy style, while going for more of an unusual ‘girlie glam’ look for our VIBE crew. Da Brat, whose current mixtape Life After Death is available for download, gave some insight into the shoot how her shoot went, her favorite body part, as well as how she stays physically fit. Check it out:
How did you feel about the Vibe.com photo shoot?
I absolutely loved it! The stylist Tamara Connor was amazing. Mara Z styled my hair with the help of her assistant Dina as well as my regular hairstylist, Shontelle Sampeur. Mara also did my makeup. Both hair and make-up were great. And I loved the photographer, Alex. I definitely want to do more photo shoots with him because I can tell he is passionate about his work.
Was it uncomfortable transitioning into a “sex symbol” or is this just another side of you that we never see?
I’m such a fucking lady. I loved to get glammed up. I love manis and pedis. I like to go to Vicky Secrets and La Perla because I like lace and bikinis. I’m such a P.Y.T. (Pretty Young Thug)

It depends on the look and how I’m feeling that day.
