Vibe Vixen has snagged a chica with beauty and brains for it’s new digital cover girl. Angela Simmons, the 26-year-old daughter of Rev. Run, chats about growing up in the spotlight, but busting her butt, literally to carve her own lane. She admits

I was spoiled growing up, but I’m not a brat. Brats cry for what they want, they don’t work for it.”

Check out her thoughts on being a boss, working with her ex-boyfriend and fame.


AngelaIAM came about because there are so many different elements of me, and I like to share with people who follow me, so I needed a home for all of it, to be able to sell these products. So people could get their hands on the things that I wear or the products that I like. It’s kind of like a boutique.

Being a boss means really knowing what teamwork is. I don’t believe anyone can get to a vision or goal alone.


We’re like best friends so that was super fun. I’ve known Bow Wow for nearly ten years so it wasn’t weird, it was normal. We’ve literally watched each other grow up.


That is definitely in the works. If all goes well, hopefully, you guys will see something really soon.

I am super excited. This is the first baby of the family and I am so happy. It’s incredible. So seeing the sister I grew up with have a daughter is amazing. I’m thrilled to eventually have a child of my own when I settle down at some point. For now, I’m just going to spoil my niece.

I don’t like when people are so negative and quick to judge the people they feel are on a pedestal. That’s a downside to being in the spotlight. You have to deal with people constantly poking at you or how you look. It’s always something. But that comes with fame. As long as you have thick enough skin, you’re fine. I prefer not to go on blogs, but if they’re commenting on my Instagram, of course I am going to see it. The best thing to do is ignore it.


My most rebellious moment was going out and doing things on my own without the help of my family. I’m living in that moment now and I don’t know if it’s so rebellious—it’s just being myself and not apologizing for it.
