Tiffany Pollard doesn’t need makeup to get attention

The ‘Flavour of Love’ star – who went public as ‘New York’ when searching VH1 to find rapper Flava Flav a girlfriend – thinks she’s ‘never’ integrated and that she was “ridiculed” because of her fashion and her beauty choices.

The 40-year-old reality TV icon told Interview magazine: “I get attention just walking down the street as HBIC. I don’t have to wear makeup and men go turn around, women will turn around and children will turn around and say, “Who is that? I don’t know why or how this is happening, but they’re all looking at me.”

Tiffany first gained notice in her hometown for not following fashion and beauty standards. “Honestly, I was born on HBIC [Head B**** in Charge]. And what I mean by that is that I never felt like I belonged, whether it was in elementary school, middle school, or high school. I went to college for two days and dropped out. I was always in the middle of ridicule because I wanted to wear different colored makeup and hair, and where I’m from in upstate New York, that’s all a no-no.

The ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ star detailed that the expected uniform of ‘loose shirt, wash your face and slick your hair back into a pony’ was not her and the contempt for peer pressure the brought to see the world.

She said: ‘You were supposed to wear a loose shirt, wash your face and slick your hair back into a ponytail, but that was never me. I’ve always wanted to think outside the box. Then I met this guy who owned a clothing store. He said to me, “Every time you come to my store, your hair is styled in a different style. That doesn’t happen here. Who are you?” Long story short, I dated him for 14 years. I traveled with him, he showed me a bigger life.
