The music video model and vixen does not hold the same credibility that it once did. While vixens like Melyssa Ford and Tahiry paved the way for many, the world of instagram makes the identity of a vixen easily attainable. That said, Stephanie Santiago is the last of a dying breed!
Named one of the sexiest New Yorkers on Instagram by the New York Post, Santiago is currently a co-host of the Lip Service Podcast alongside The Breakfast Club’s Angela Yee. Santiago has appeared in music videos like 2 Chainz’s Birthday Song and Fabolous’ Birthday Song.
Her huge break came in 2013 when she appeared on stage as Bonita Applebum during A Tribe Called Quest’s opening set during Kanye West’s Yeezus Tour at Madison Square Garden. Named by Complex as one of the 25 Hottest Urban Models to Follow on Instagram, shehas range in her young career.
Appearing on a recent episode of Scoop B Radio, Santiago talked on a very popular topic in the entertainment world: plastic surgery. Many young ladies that are in videos emulate what they see other women in the industry do in getting surgery.
Santiago weighed in on the growing trend.
“Well, I don’t think there are video vixens anymore,” Santiago told me. “I think it’s all like bartenders, strippers and free bitches, so I don’t really think you can compare them to like the real ones like myself or Melissa Ford, or even Tahiry, you know what I mean? “Even Buffy the Body, you know what I mean, we’re real video vixens like we’ve done some legendary s**t, but everybody’s getting plastic surgery, man. They’re doing it for cheap I was just watching Maury the other day and they got like commercials. What is it they call it? Sono Bello or some s**t? These b*****s getting lipo from the f******g ads on Maury, my man. Like everybody’s getting surgery.”

When asked about the percentage in the industry, Santiago was honest:
“I say 99 percent of the girls are getting it,” she said. “I’m very public about my plastic surgery. I have videos getting plastic surgery on the internet. I support team plastic, I think there’s nothing wrong with fixing a problem. If you don’t like it, fix it. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that. I think girls get surgery expecting to become an internet celebrity or are expecting to get that call to be in Jay-Z‘s video or something, you know it just doesn’t work like that. You can’t have a great body and a cute face and a dry personality. I feel like girls should stop watching what other girls are doing and do their own thing and make success out of themselves.”
