[After recently crushing the hearts of most video vixen lovers by announcing plans to stop doing men’s magazine spreads after 2012, eye-catching model Rosa Acosta gives SOHH readers the inside scoop on her decision.]
This is probably going to be the last year I’m doing magazines. A few glamour magazines. I might still want to do other type of stuff. If I do magazines next year again, it will be either promoting something bigger than modeling and I’m probably not going to be filmed naked.
I’m not against being in the magazines but my days of modeling are over. I do have a few other magazines that I actually shot a while ago and they are going to come through the course of this year but some of the stuff I actually shot a while ago. I don’t have any interest in doing magazines no more. They don’t do anything for me so I’m moving on to other things.
I don’t quite think about things without doing them. So it hasn’t been in the back of my head without me doing anything. I have been able to profit off of what I do, obviously, the only reason why I’m still doing it is because I profit off of it.
I’m not just in modeling because I like it. I really do well for myself. But I’ve been doing things in order to move on. I haven’t had this in the back of my head without no plan. Since the very first day, I was blogging how I’d [make] the transition and what do I want to do and how can I use this and turn it into something else. Forever.
I always knew this wasn’t a career. I always knew this wasn’t going to last forever. Even if it lasts for a long time, I happen to not want to do it no more. I’m not retiring because I’m not getting enough work. I’m pretty sure if Esther Baxter or Melyssa Ford were available to do videos, they would still be getting hired because they still look the same or even better than what they looked five or ten years ago.
So we don’t retire because we have to. Looking pretty can last a long time for some of them, I’m not saying that is my case, but the truth is that if they were still taking the jobs of video vixens, they would still get hired. It’s not only that we feel like we have to.
I just don’t want to keep doing it no more. I’m already bored. I’m bored. I want to do something next. What’s next?
