Eye Candy of the Year: Popular Demand

Photography by Ellen Stagg

This is history in the making. Never has the Eye Candy of the Year competition been so thick and gooey that XXL was forced to hand out co-crowns. But such is the case this year, as Latinas Tammy Torres and Rosa Acosta annihilated the video-vixen scene with volume. While Ms. Torres spent 2009 upgrading the singles for rappers like Fabolous (“Everything, Everyday, Everywhere”) and Birdman (“Money to Blow”), Ms. Acosta provided the same service for more-easy listeners, like Mario (“Break Up”) and Drake (“Best I Ever Had” and “Forever”). Both, though, could be capping off the year with their biggest features yet: the futuristic video for Chris Brown’s first post-Rihanna single, “I Can Transform Ya.” (Spoiler alert: In the vid, the lovelies look even more out of this world).

With individual Web sites that are accumulating more hits than just about any other big-name vixens’, Tammy the sexy Cuban, with mo’ ass than Pakistan (donkey population, silly), and Rosa the Dominicana cutie, who resembles Cassie with a dream body, duked it out for the title of XXL’s ECOTY. Before the battle, check out their interview below. If you wanna help break the tie, CLICK HERE to vote for your favorite. We like ’em both. As the saying goes, double your pleasure…

So what makes y’all two so Eye-Candy-of-the-Year hot?

Rosa: I’m not a girl trying to model to become an actress or a singer. I was first a dancer and an actress, and now I’m a model. I came to the game with something new, and people like it.

Tammy: We put a lot of hard work into ourselves: working out, making sure we eat right, torturing ourselves by waking up early to do what we’ve gotta do. People always ask me what do
I do for fun. I work. I don’t watch TV. I’m always working on something new. We’re the two hardest-working girls in hip-hop.

So what would you say is the worst characteristic about your Co–ECOTY recipient?

Tammy: Worst thing about Rosa is that she’s celibate ’til 2010. [Laughs]

Rosa: I’m allowed to make out [with a guy], though! Well, worst thing about Tammy is, every time she gets a text [from a guy], she looks at her phone and squeals at it like a 13-year-old. [Laughs]

What can your fans expect from y’all in 2010?

Rosa: Well, 2010’s gonna start beautifully for me, because I’m gonna end my celibacy. [Laughs]

So on January 1, 2010, you’re just gonna go crazy on some dude and leave him bedridden?

Rosa: No, no, no, not like that. But, ummm, I’m desperate. [By then] it will’ve been six months.

Tammy: In 2010, Tammy Torres will find love! I’ve been single for years. I’ve put in a lot of hard work, and now I’m ready for a man.

So you’ve just been a playa, jumpin’ dudes?

Tammy: [Laughs] Nah, I’ve been very focused. I haven’t had anybody that I could say I have as my own.

Rosa, you’ve said you had sex seven times in one day. So what’s the most orgasms you’ve had in the same time span?

Rosa: I don’t remember, but it was probably more than seven. It was a lot of times. I can have a lot of orgasms––it’s one of my talents. And [I can have ’em] really fast. My record is 12 seconds.

Guys get crucified for that kind of speed! And your record, Tammy?

Tammy: Ooooh, I don’t know. I didn’t have no seven orgasms, but it was a lot, because I was in love. It was a long time ago, with my ex-fiancé. I think [we had sex], like, five times, but that day it lasted a long time––a long, long time. But I’m tryna break Rosa’s record in 2010. [Laughs] —Bonsu Thompson

    Get the fuck outta here.

    This reminds me of back when The Source had an open vote for all-time greats and came up with a “tie” for Greatest Producer of All Time between Dr. Dre and Premier.

    When something is done by vote, and you have more than say…10 or 20 votes, how the fuck do you end up with a tie?

    Not like I care about who won this shit, but get the fuck outta here.

    What was the voting like 2,232 to 2,232?

    IT TAKES A BROTHA AND A SISTA TO MAKE A BLACK BABY! NOT WHITE BITCH OR A LATINA BITCH! ALL YOU NIGGAS ONLY CARE ABOUT IS WHITE AND LATINA BITCHES, WHY IS THE SISTA ALWAYS LEFT OUT? AT THE END THE DAY THESE MAGAZINES AND RAPPERS (AND GOLFERS) ONLY WANT WHITE AND LATINA WOMEN, IMAGINE HOW YALL ARE MAKING THE SISTAS FEEL, I MEAN A SISTA NEVER WINS ANY KIND OF AWARD, ALL HE BROTHAS DO IS MARRY SOMETHING THAT AINT BLACK, IN MY OPINION

    “THE WHOLE WORLD SOLD OUT, ESPECIALLY THE BLACK MAN”

    • Focus

      Heltah sin get over yourself. Their are a lot if beautiful black women out there. It just happened that one didn’t win this competition. Everything needs to stop being so black and white. Because if a terrorist us going to blow a plane up, it doesn’t matter what you look like. They are doing it because you’re an American. And in the end of the day that’s what we all are, AMERICANS. It is what it is.

    to any ignorant bitch out there, let me sound you out on behalf of black men. Our black dicks do not discriminate. If you’re a fine clean sexy black girl, the dick will always get hard for you. It’s not about race. My dick has never gone soft on a girl just because I discovered she was black. If you’re clean fine dress good, keep your look sexy, you’ll get alot of big dcks wanting to get at you. But if you’re dirty, untidy, smelly, unsexy, overweight etc then you’re only hiding behind skin colour as a reason of your rejection from men.
