Maroon 5 Video Shoot / I'm not a hooker, I just play one on MTV

This story ends with Maroon 5….but It starts with J-lo.

One day I got a call from a casting agency asking me to come audition for a Jennifer Lopez video.
David LaChapelle was directing, and since I’d worked for him before, they wanted me to come down.

This ended up being the video for “Do it well”.

I went to the casting office dressed, as they requested, like a hooker. There I was, among a whole lot of other people in all sorts of colorful outfits.
What was so fascinating about it for me though, was that everyone had their lovely and wholesome headshot in hand. It was totally surreal walking past everyone all tramped up, with a huge color photo of themselves looking like a commercial for toothpaste or insurance. Oh, and The a/c was busted.

I did my first screen test & I met alot of interesting people. That said, I didn’t make it in. A J-lo video was not in the cards for me…

But three days later, the casting agency called.
“we have ANOTHER hooker video coming up that you’d be PERFECT for!”

Awesome!

The next week I was on set and shooting for Maroon 5’s “Won’t go Home Without You”.

Like an idiot, I forgot my camera at home…So all I have for you is the one photo they posted on their site, and the video itelf. I’m in the distance in the middle of the above photo.
Truth be told, the camera wasn’t in love with me this time around.
Watch extra close at 2:01 and 2:07, and MAYBE you’ll spot me.

I did take a photo in the bathroom when I got home with all my makeup & teased hair.
I should try the hooker look more often.

    Hey Star.
    I haven’t checked in on the site in a while. The new site looks great! Hope that you are doing well.

    also. HA, you’re a hooker! (although I can’t really tell from the video)

    I so love this post! But I’ll always refer to you in this instance as a ‘lady of the night.’ You’re just too classy to be lumped in with the hookers!

    Amazing.
