The "New Booty" Concept
August 29, 2021 12:08 PM
We've all heard stories like this before. Companies that want to work with artists in exchange for exposure. Why do companies go to small independent businesses asking for free work? Regardless of what the promo might do for their business, which is usually not a lot.
This reminds me of the movie The Player's Club. Actress, Crystal Wilson, who played Ronnie in the movie will represent "The Big Company". Vultures circling the sky waiting for a small independent business to devour. Looking for that "New Booty"!
Ronnie was a walking, talking embodiment of everything that people found wrong with strip club culture. In the beginning, Ronnie and sidekick Trixie, portrayed by comedy legend Adele Givens, roll up on Diamond (Lisa Rey) working in a shoe store. They immediately knew that she would be a moneymaker at the club (light skin, conventionally desirable figure, etc.)
At first, Ronnie is seen as a mentor of sorts, someone to show Diamond the ropes at the club. However, when cousin Ebony appears on the scene, this changes. Suddenly, Diamond and Ronnie are adversaries because of opposing views of what Ebony should be doing.
