Grammy-award winning rapper, Cornell “Nelly” Haynes, Jr. is a lot of things. Actor… musician… Humanitarian…
…and besides being Ashanti’s on & off boo-thang, he’s also a great entrepreneur! Nelly held a press conference earlier this week (March 28) as he selected Miss Apple Bottoms 2011.
Four finalists were selected after an online search launched in August 2010. The finalists were Tiffany Davison, Amanda Donald, Eve Meyers and Jessica Vice.
Nelly was in Canada, touring to support his recent Universal Records release, “5.0” and the finalists were all treated to a trip to Toronto, a stay in a gorgeous boutique hotel, a day at the spa, a personal meeting with Nelly, and VIP treatment at Nelly’s concert.
Let’s see… there’s a hot blond, a cute Latina and two brown girls.
Can you guess which one was chosen to represent Nelly’s Apple Bottoms brand?
Find out below and peep a few photos of her “A”ssets:
Nelly selected Jessenia Vice as the wild card pick.
Vice, 26, is a resident of Newark, New Jersey who has an extensive modeling portfolio. Check out a bit of her previous works:
According to the press release:
Jessenia has overcome great odds in her life and is much more than a beautiful face. She currently works in the ER Department of a Psychiatric Hospital, while studying to be a nurse.
In addition to modeling, Vice also hosts a regular radio show on AListRadio.net.
“I am so excited to work with Apple Bottoms and Nelly!
Before my grandmother passed she made me promise her to keep on going with the modeling. I never understood why until now. The 2 and half years I’ve been doing this have opened many doors of dreams I never could imagine.
Congrats to Jessenia Vice… Miss Apple Bottoms 2011! I’m sure she’ll honor the title and serve dutifully.
