The fans can see me in different environments. That being said, being an adult star gave me the opportunities I am now getting in mainstream so I am never going to forget my roots. I love being a porn star! Adult is where I am always going to be. I am in the process of supercharging my official site with all new stuff & rest assured I am going to be feature dancing as long as the fans want to continue seeing me get naked and entertain them on stage. The girls who were nominated as Feature Entertainer of the Year are amazing. I am just happy to be nominated with them.”
