Fashion Via Keepin It 700 Radio

Recently I met this amazing woman through my manager at My Lady Boutique, and I begged for an interview! I was granted with the thoughts and advice below:



Name: Joelle ‘Sevin Hunnid’ Montague

Radio Show/Station: Keepin It 700 radio / The Square Root of 700 Show



Q: Why did you start your radio show?

JM: I started my show because I have always wanted to be on radio and I saw that the radio stations that we had, KISS and WAMO, were not showcasing the local talent that Pittsburgh has.

Q: What is your radio show about ?

JM: I showcases local hip hop no matter wat city the artists are from, we talk about everything from music to politics to who is having sex with whom. I call myself the Wendy Williams of Pittsburgh but I also say I’m a mix between her, Howard Stewart and Oprah. I get in your business while being raunchy and have captivating interviews. My show is like a conversation between friends, just on air.

Q: What’s your favorite article of clothing and why?

JM: My shoes lol I love shoes, if I don’t have any shoes, I don’t have an outfit.


Q: Which piece of clothing do you think is the key component to an outfit?

JM: A great pair of jeans, if your butt looks nice that’s the best thing lol


Q: What is your favorite fashion related memory?

JM: Being a model for John Casablanca’s, that was when I first knew that I was a natural beauty, I was about 16.


Q: What would you tell a plus size audience member about fashion?

JM: Do not think that we do not have the cute stuff, it just takes us longer. I think that some of the things that smaller sizes do not work for us and do not conform to what society wants you to be, we are sexy.


Q: How do you use clothing in your professional life?

JM: I make sure when I’m at all events looking fierce, I wear the color purple because I carry myself as royalty. I would like to start my own t-shirt line called Keepin It 700 so everybody can keep it 700 like me lol

Q: How has being plus size effected you?

JM: I have always been heavy but more fit, now that I am bigger, at first it was a self-conscious thing but now I’m big, beautiful and I’m loving the boobs lol In my industry it’s not the form of beauty to be of a larger sixe but I think that stigma is erasing because no one wants skin and bones all the time.


Q: What would be your #1 advice for plus size women?

JM: Be you. God put you on this earth to love yourself and be happy. Do not wear clothes that do not fit, no matter what your friends say. Try to stay healthy.
