Elke The Stallion
Elke The Stallion: Thoroughbred!
Story and Interview by Matthew Shack
Thoroughbreds are a breed of horse that are preeminent in the sport of horse racing. They are recognized to be an "easily roused" animal; in other words…they are very “HOT BLOODED”!
All modern-day thoroughbreds can draw their pedigrees to three original stallions introduced into England during the 1600’s and 1700’s. Known for their dexterity, velocity and heart; they perform with the utmost physical exertion possible.
[Editor’s note: Hmmm…are you thinking what I’m thinking?]
Elke The Stallion is an aptly moniker and yes; there is a very good reason on why she has such an hourglass figure. Pedigree!
The Germany-born powerhouse has been featured in the following videos: Outkast’s, "I Like The Way You Move", D-12’s "My Band", Usher’s "Rhythm City", 50 Cent’s "Disco Inferno" and Eminem’s "Ass Like That".
Elke's assets are cause to repeat my boy, Sir Mix-A-Lot's signature line...“I like big butts and I cannot lie!”
TFM: How long have you been in the game?
Elke: I have been modeling since I was 14, but have been involved in the urban industry for about four years now.
TFM: You have are unique of mixture of different nationalities, correct?
Elke: Yes, but I am mainly German. Yep, I am a white girl, NOT Latin like so many people think. All I know is that my dad has some Spanish (not Latin) in him and Black down the line, but not sure how far down.
TFM: How does being from outside of the U.S. affect your style of modeling?
Elke: Well, I am more open to high fashion and editorial shoots. My goal is to eventually shoot like VOUGE or ELLE but with a sexy twist to it. And of course the way I was raised does influence the way I am working. I am extremely professional and ALWAYS on time. I take my work serious and I am a go-getter.
TFM: Are you bilingual, as well?
Elke: Yes I am. I speak fluent German of course, English and conversational Spanish. Its extremely important to speak more then one language, not only to be able to communicate with people from other countries, but also just for your own good, for you to just be smart and stay witty.
TFM: What's next for you in '08?
Elke: 2008 has been great so far, my website www.ElkeTheStallion.com is doing better then ever, my second website www.ElkeTheModel.com , which is more editorial and sort of an online portfolio, resume and all details about me, has launched a few weeks ago. Now I am working on my own magazine and I WILL have that 2009 calendar ready by the end of October.
TFM: Your favorite video that you've been in?
Elke: The first video I ever did, which was Outkast's "I Like The Way You Move", great concept, great Director, Bryan Barber and of course Outkast was hilarious. We had so much fun.
TFM: What are your measurements, weight and height?
Elke: I am 5' 7, and almost 180 lbs. Believe it or not, muscle is heavier than fat, and I think we all agree that my legs are quiet muscular even though I've never worked them out in my life. My measurement are 36-27-44.
TFM: What is your most favorite part of your body and why?
Elke: I love my legs; I used to hate them when I was younger, now I think they define the STALLION part of me! So many girls call themselves "Stallions" because they have a big butt. To me, a stallion is a very muscular but still curvy and sexy woman. A big butt yes, but also muscular thick, not fat. Also the height is very important, a 5' 3 girl is a pony, not a stallion. So I bring the height to the game as well. And I love my green eyes, NO CONTACTS! [Laughs]
TFM: Tell us one of your patented beauty secrets.
Elke:Eating organic, No drugs and at least 10 hours of sleep everyday!!! NO Sodas!!!
TFM: What do you dislike about men in general?
Elke: I hate guys who don’t have self-confidence and I don’t like metro sexual guys. Having your hair lined up, wearing clean clothes and some jewelry is all good, but NO shiny fingernails and gel in their hair with their eyebrows waxed! Ewww…horrible!!
TFM: Can a normal guy get with you or does he have to have something cracking?
Elke: A normal guy could have something cracking, but to me a normal guy is not a broke guy. [Laughs] A broke guy is a broke guy and a regular guy makes his money, which is cool in my book. But I do love tall-tall-tall men, so most of the time they play ball, just works out like that, but that is NOT a requirement to date me. As long as you make your money and treat me with respect and romance me here and there, I am perfectly fine. I hate lazy and dumb guys.
TFM: What’s the worst pick-up line ever tried on you?
Elke: They are all bad. Just be yourself and come at me, respectfully.
TFM: What advice would you give to all of those models out there, who are trying to follow in your footsteps?
Elke: Be yourself, and don’t be afraid to take risks, as far as make yourself stand out from other girls, via amazing pictures, maybe unexpected photos. And NEVER compromise your happiness for money or for the industry. And you either have it or you don't, so don't force your luck; it will only make you unhappy.
