Straight from the pages of the Summer Issue of KING, get to know Maria Allure
Armed with a new name but keeping her sultry side intact, the Jamaican beauty (yes, sheâ€™s Jamaican) formerly known as Maria Maria definitely makes the following pages more alluring…
The last time you were in KING, you pulled a Jimmy Two-Times and called yourself Maria Maria. Now you return as Maria Allure. Why the change?
MARIA ALLURE: The name change comes from a character I often, coincidentally, become cast as: the alluring woman with mysterious intentions [laughs].
Being alluring is glamorous, charming and engagingâ€”also, by definition, the power to
attract, interest. What more can you ask for in a name?
A B-12 shot, perhaps? But for
those who didnâ€™t pick up that issue (Mar./Apr. â€™08) with you in your birthday suit, sitting on a stool, what is your ethnicity?
[Laughs] Iâ€™m Jamaican, but I amÂ so mixed.
Getting back to your ethnicity and look, do you mostly get approached by Jamaican men?
Different races approach me. They can never really tell whatÂ I am in the beginning.Â But being that New York is a melting pot, youâ€™re surrounded by different ethnicities all the time out here.
In that case, what type of man piques your interest? Are you looking for a rude bwoi?
I look for qualities like ambitious, confident, caring, funny, educated, street smart, protective and family oriented.
Thatâ€™s all well and good, but you donâ€™t see that on some random guy when heâ€™s walking down the street.
Physicallyâ€¦whew, don’t we love that word?
If itâ€™s used in the sentence, â€œIâ€™m not looking for a serious relationship, just something
physically fulfilling,â€ then yes.
[Laughs] No, but seriously, I like my men tall, lean, built, with an amazing smile! And for what itâ€™s worth, handsome is best. Pretty boys aren’t really my thing.
