Madison Skye: Interview

Why do you do what you do?

I do modeling because it helps me express a side that I don't show from day to day! It's my alter ego. A lot of people expect that I am some sex kitten, half dressed in lingerie posing all the time but really in person I am strange and awkward and also a bit shy.

When did you know this is what you wanted to do, and what events led you to choose it?

When I was 16 I loved looking at sites like Suicide Girls and Gods Girls and I couldn't wait Til I was 18 to be able to join a site like that. That isn't my goal anymore, I'm not into sites like that now but at that time that really inspired me to get tattoos and start modeling and I think it actually really helped me with my self esteem and helped my blossom into the person that I am today!

I had a friend in my home town who did a photo shoot and after seeing her photos I wanted to do shoots myself and so I booked a few shoots which was really hard and nerve racking at first but I stuck with it and it become a lot of fun and I wasn't nervous anymore.

Toughest thing you had to overcome to do what you do? And what/who helped you?

The toughest thing I had to do to continue on with my modeling career was move from home! I moved from Halifax, Nova Scotia to Toronto, Ontario about four years ago and it was a struggle! I couch surfed, moved like ten times, went from job to job trying to figure out my place. Now I am fully settled in and on the right path but it took a lot of patience to get where I am now!

Has anyone/anything ever inspired you to become who you are (to follow your dreams)? Have you ever inspired anyone directly?

When I first started modeling I was really inspired by a few models and I still am inspired by them! Some of my favorite inspiration comes from models such as Kristen Leanne, Alysha Nett and Little Baby Linda.

I've been told by fans that I inspire them! That always feels good knowing that people aren't only following me because of my lingerie photos, that some of these people actually following me because I inspire them to follow their dreams!

One mistake that you made in your journey? How have you learnt from them?

I have to say that I wasn't always the most patient person! I'm known to be the "Wild Child" in the industry home in Halifax and I wasn't always the most easy going! I also feel like I have Hard Luck but it has taught me a lot and has helped me grow into a better person.

Upcoming projects? Plans/goal? (about anything, if you have any)

I'm currently trying to focus more on my career as a barber. I do have some exciting shoots coming up in the new year so keep your eyes peeled for that! Also looking into finally getting a website together!

What advice would you give to other people? (Just about life in general - It could be about anything)

I'm not one to give people advice but I would say never hold yourself back, if you want something go for it in full force. Sitting around waiting for things to come your way rarely works out. Make the sacrifices, go all the way because you will most likely regret it if you don't.
