Eye Candy: Dollicia Bryan, It’s Not A Game

In this historical election year, few women campaigned harder than Senator Hillary Clinton and, ummm…Dollicia Bryan. While Ms. Bryan didn’t face an opponent as colossal as Hill’s, her anointment was earned less through opposition and more through achievement (Lil Wayne’s “Got Money” and Kanye’s “Love Lockdown” videos, the movie Dough Boys, starring Reagan Gomez and Wood Harris, the cover of King, etc.). Now that the crowning is complete, let’s sit back and watch this doll-faced politician blow her own curvaceous horn. Speech!

Since you doggedly campaigned for Eye Candy of the Year, tell us why you feel more entitled than the other 2008 Candies?

There really weren’t too many major videos or girls this year. If I didn’t shoot [for Eye Candy of the Year], who was going to? Wayne is one of [the] biggest rappers, and he held up my King cover on his personal blog site. I was the gold fantasy girl on Kanye’s Glow in the Dark tour, and I did an Absolut Vodka commerical with him this year. Not many girls get the opportunity to work with an artist three times.

There was a little drama this year between yourself and Bow Wow on radio and through video. Are we correct for assuming your ideal man is over 5 feet 5 inches and 140 pounds?

[Laughs] Understatement! [Laughs]

You were all over the Net in pictures from the set of the “Love Lockdown” video shoot, but you’re barely visible in it. Did you make fun of Kanye’s singing or something?

No. Videos get edited. I have no control over it. They made me too tribal-looking, instead of the look he wanted for his video, which was supposed to be more on the sexy side. So I didn’t make the edit.

So what’s your plan to avoid becoming just another forgotten vixen this time next year?

I always challenge myself, so next year I’m focusing on films, commercials and branding. One thing that’s constant in life is change… Nothing is concrete. See you in ’09, baby! -Bonsu Thompson

    She was hot in Joe – If I Was Your man.


      I hope she realized there are other oppertunities in acquiring worldly things other than taking off her clothes. “For what profit a man to gain the world & lose there own soul” I’m not judging her so I hope she doesn’t think this is intendid to do so. I just want these young ladies of ALL cultures and creed to see they don’t have to go a certian route to attain worldly things.

    Buffie The Body: Hip-Hop’s Mary Magdalene & Hottentot Venus.

    Khalil Amani (Hoodgrownonline.com)

    I am officially announcing in 2009 that the video model/stripper is Hip-Hop’s “5th Element!” Move over MC, DJ, graffiti artist, and break-dancer! It’s recognition time!

    I’m sick of it! I’m sick and fucking tired of the disrespect to black women within hip-hop! I’m especially pissed at the way video models and strippers are portrayed! This ain’t no diatribe about sexual exploitation of women either!

    There is nary a music video out that doesn’t have one of our very bodacious sistas strutting her stuff, which allows these rappers to sell their music. (If their music sucks, we might as well be ocularly entertained, right? Is that a word? “Ocularly.” Charge it to my Ebonics!) But then we wanna label them “video hoes”—while we’re eye-fucking them! We are voyeurs of their work, yet we criticize their profession! Y’all already know I’m “Ya gay friend’s favorite straight friend,” but these straight cats are some of the gayest dudes (including this radio jock!) (Yes homo!) Negroes are actually mad and repulsed at the female anatomy!

    As much as we might hate on the “Buffie The Bodies” of the world, we need them! If for nothing more than to make ourselves feel better about whom we are not. Like Toni Morrison’s character Sula, the “perceived” town whore, we need Buffie The Body so that our lives have greater meaning!

    Shout-out to Hip-hop’s Hottentot Venuses—Buffie The Body, Angel Lola, Ice La Fox, Cherokee, CoCo, Deelishis, Pinky and all of you fine young ladies who are sexually liberated!
