MADISON PAIGE: "I FIRST WANTED TO BECOME A MOTOCROSS BADASS AND RODE FOR TWO YEARS UNTIL MY DAD DECIDED HE COULDN'T STAND THE ANXIETY, HAHA."
3rd September 2014
Who is Madison Paige?
I don't even know who Madison is fully, yet. So far I know I am a tomboyish girl who enjoys rocking menswear and skateboards. I am constantly reinventing myself, but always confident. Sometimes I leave it on the dance floor and other times I'm curled over my pen & paper tuning out the world. I'm a walking contradiction and I am thoroughly convinced that R. M. Drake's quotes are written about me. I have a sister with bright blue hair and my family is a cluster of nut jobs in the best way. So, yeah. Oh, and my nickname is Mads.
What did you do before modeling?
I first wanted to become a motocross badass and rode for two years until my dad decided he couldn't stand the anxiety, haha. But my favorite occupation before modeling full-time was bartending. It was a great way of learning how to read people and hold a conversation.
If you weren’t a model what would you be?
I want to become a full-time musician later on in life. I've always had an undying passion for modeling, but my heart lies with music and always has. But if that all goes to sh*t then I guess I would just 'Chris McCandless it' and go live in the wilderness.
Your personal passion or hidden talents?
I really enjoy playing my guitar, that's something I do almost every day. Otherwise I have a passion for getting my grub on, I'm constantly writing, I love blasting music in my headphones and walking or skating around the city alone, meeting strangers, and I really love doing comedic improv.
Ten years from now (you will be…)?
Older, hopefully wiser, probably just as crazy. More in tune with the worlds coordinates and culture. Fluent in French (at least), and possibly German and Serbian due to my two roommates. Hopefully some check marks on my bucket list. Hell, maybe I'll even have a girlfriend.
Pulchritudinous, it's simply another way of saying beautiful. Or that someone is of heartbreaking beauty.
What’s no fun?
Thinking of things that are no fun!
Who's your favorite Supermodel?
My grandmother. Although she wasn't supermodel status, when she used to model she was so elegant. And I'm kind of bias.
Current 'eye candy'?
Well I don't really have a favorite, but since I have a quote from this particular movie tattooed on myself, I'll have to go with The Breakfast Club. But I also love Snatch, Boondock Saints, Clockwork Orange, Requiem for a Dream, and a whole lot more. I'm a self-proclaimed movie buff.
Your Dream modeling Job?
I don't want to jinx anything! I'm honestly happy to book mostly any modeling jobs. I have a few of them in mind though.
The only permanencies in my life are my tattoos, so I guess they're the most timeless.
What’s your beauty secret or essential grooming routine?
Don't try too hard, but still try.
A quote that sums you up:
“The two most important days of your life are the day that you are born and the day you find out why."
