As we prepare to begin a series of features on the beautiful and unique models of Keiani Model Management, we decided it would be fun to talk to its owner, Tiffany “Fantasy” Clements, about the company, her vision for Keiani Model Management and most importantly, the talent her agency represents. Tiffany is quite interesting for sure, but as The Heat Magazine found out, she is even more animated and fun when being interviewed. Here’s what she had to say:
THE HEAT MAGAZINE: Who is Tiffany “Fantasy” Clements, in 65 words or less?
TIFFANY “FANTASY” CLEMENTS OF KEIANI MODEL MANAGEMENT: I am an African-American mother, former agency represented model, entrepreneur, and so much more. I am passionate about the entertainment industry and others whom believe that. “Watching their dreams develop wings and take flight!” is of grave importance. I plan to affect hundreds, thousands … then millions. Impression is momentary… an impact lasts a lifetime!
THE HEAT MAGAZINE: What entertainment personality is closest to your real personality?
TIFFANY “FANTASY” CLEMENTS OF KEIANI MODEL MANAGEMENT: I can say that I am unmatched! lol #standalone. On a more serious note…. I have been blessed to deliver my thoughts/goals and put them into action. Be passionate, be myself and be strong while remaining original. The entertainment personality that I walk closely with and admire a great deal, is Oprah Winfrey.
THE HEAT MAGAZINE: If you could pick one spot to purchase a second home, where would it be and why?
TIFFANY “FANTASY” CLEMENTS OF KEIANI MODEL MANAGEMENT: I would need to purchase my first home in New Orleans. No matter where this life takes me… all roads lead back to N.O.L.A. My second place of choice where I would consider purchasing a home, would be on an island, which has piranha infested waters. #nounexpectedguests lol
THE HEAT MAGAZINE: Where will Tiffany “Fantasy” Clements and Keiani Models be in 5 years?
TIFFANY “FANTASY” CLEMENTS OF KEIANI MODEL MANAGEMENT: In five years, Fantasy will be free to move about the country and abroad. The talent of Keiani Model Management will become household names, provided that they continue to push the envelope and strive for better. If they work hard, I’ll work twice as hard and together, we will build a fortress that consists of walls that cannot be breached.
THE HEAT MAGAZINE: If you could pick anyone to direct a movie about your life, who would that be? And who would you choose to play the role of Fantasy? What would the movie be entitled?
TIFFANY “FANTASY” CLEMENTS OF KEIANI MODEL MANAGEMENT: I would pick Tyler Perry to direct the story of my life. I would select my daughter to be the lead character. The title of the movie would be “Allow Life To Turn You Upside Down, So That You May Learn To Live Right Side Up!” My daughter would have the starring role.
THE HEAT MAGAZINE: How did you get started with the modeling agency?
TIFFANY “FANTASY” CLEMENTS OF KEIANI MODEL MANAGEMENT: I have been blessed with an entrepreneurial spirit, but didn’t know how to start a business. As a former model, other talent would ask questions and I would give insight to aspiring talent when able to do so and for anything that I was unaware of, I did research. I knew that I was passionate about helping others. Other acquaintances and friends who own their own companies encouraged me to find my niche, go back to school, upgrade my status and become an entreprenuer. I love the entertainment industry, so work will be something that I look forward to on a day to day basis. Now, when I awaken everyday, I am about the business of being in business and the rest is history.
THE HEAT MAGAZINE: If someone is interested in hiring your models, how do they go about this?
TIFFANY “FANTASY” CLEMENTS OF KEIANI MODEL MANAGEMENT: If anyone is interested in booking our talent(s) or becoming a Keiani Model/talent, please submit via our website at www.keimanagement.com. We can be added on Facebook, Skype and followed on Twitter. Our ID is keianimodels.
THE HEAT MAGAZINE: What is your vision for Keiani Models?
TIFFANY “FANTASY” CLEMENTS OF KEIANI MODEL MANAGEMENT: My vision, as a whole for us as a company and for each individual talent, is to become a household name. Going global will happen through God’s blessings and the continued support of those around me.
THE HEAT MAGAZINE: If you could describe your models in 40 words or less, how would you describe them?
