Female rapper Da Brat has always been known to rock the whole “tomboy” look. But now she’s showing off her sexy and femine side in a brand new photoshoot with VIBE Magazine, where the newly sprung femcee talks about being “such a f*cking lady” and getting glammed up, as her girly side is second nature to her.

Check out the pics and the excerpts below:

On transitioning into a “sex symbol”
I’m such a f*cking lady. I loved to get glammed up. I love manis and pedis. I like to go to Vicky Secrets and La Perla because I like lace and bikinis. I’m such a P.Y.T. (Pretty Young Thug)

On the type of clothes she likes to wear to look sexy
It depends on the look and how I’m feeling that day.

What is your favorite body part?
I don’t have just one. I love all parts of my body! But on a man, I love the Adonis line. It’s just so sexy!

What type of message do you want to portray to women about their bodies.
Be who you are!

What are you doing to stay in shape?
Work out. Working out is like a stress reliever.

How did you feel about the Vibe.com photo shoot?
I absolutely loved it! The stylist Tamara Connor was amazing. Mara Z styled my hair with the help of her assistant Dina as well as my regular hairstylist, Shontelle Sampeur. Mara also did my makeup. Both hair and make-up were great. And I loved the photographer, Alex. I definitely want to do more photo shoots with him because I can tell he is passionate about his work.
