Carmen Electra, known for her role on Baywatch, has announced that she is joining OnlyFans, and for very good reason.
She called the decision a “no brainer” in an interview with People magazine in which the star explained her new venture and said that she “felt like she needed to do this”.
Carmen, whose real name is Tara Leigh Patrick, wants to reclaim her personal image after it was discovered that a group of strip clubs were using her likeness without her knowing.
Upon her launch, Carmen is looking forward to uploading “beauty tutorials, swimwear and lingerie photos” along with “more sexy, classy pictures and videos” in hopes to be “a little more intimate” with her audience.
The actress said: “People are going to do what they want to do with your photos anyway. You might as well be in control of them and follow what you feel like doing inside.”
The 50-year-old said that she is looking forward to taking control of her image and “being her own boss” for the first time.
She also wants to “share her creative vision” without any input from outside sources.
The star, who released her first album with the help of late pop icon Prince, will also have the added benefit of relaxed censorship issues.
Instagram is known for its tight regulations but OnlyFans is a way for people to, as Carmen puts it, “show a little more”.
The former Playboy model said that it “does feel really good to stand up for herself,” but noted that “it’s not always easy to do” and gave “respect” to people “that can stand up for who they are and be honest about it”.
Carmen has a history of modelling and began in 1996, appearing in Playboy magazine before she landed her breakthrough role.
She starred as Lani McKenzie in Baywatch from 1997 to 1998 and later made a career from regular appearances in comedy movies such as the Scary Movie franchise, Date Movie, Epic Movie, Disaster Movie and Cheaper By The Dozen 2.
Electra has also worked with pop band The Pussycat Dolls as a dancer.
