Media Personality Rocsi Diaz Does A ‘Goodbye New York’ Photo Shoot For Pynk Magazine

Media personality Rocsi Diaz formerly of 106 & Park recently left BET and moved to the California coast where she is now a correspondent on Entertainment Tonight. In the latest issue of Pynk Magazine, Diaz does a ‘Goodbye New York’ themed photo shoot and talked about leaving BET, her entertainment career & highlights and fashion. Below are some excerpts:

You have moved on from BET. How do you feel?
I am very excited because BET was a great chapter in my life and I loved every minute of it, but I am looking forward to the next chapter.

Did you always want a career in entertainment?
No – not at all. Every little girl dreams about being an actress one day or something like that but I was the complete opposite. I wanted to be a whale trainer and swim with them and everything. It wasn’t until college that I became interested in entertainment and radio.

Favorite celebrity interview?

Madonna – there is no need to explain that.

Who are some of your mentors in the industry, or just successful women you look up to?

The number one person I look up to is my mother – she has always been my role model and supporter. As far as women in the industry, there are strong women like Jennifer Lopez, Lauren Whitaker, and Tyra Banks that I admire.

In term of advice for young women who want a career in entertainment, what can you offer them?

Know what you are getting yourself into, have a thick skin, and be prepared that someone will judge you for being a woman. Make sure you know your craft well and do not let anyone second guess your work.

Who’s your favorite shoe designer?

Christian Louboutin.

Where are your favorite places to shop?

I shop a lot at Intermix. Shopbop.com is one of my favorite online shopping sites.

Beyonce, Rocsi Diaz & Alicia Keys Looks Very Stylish While Running Errands

Beyoncé seem to be loving Instagram these days. She uploaded another picture to her account, wearing a $440 Alexander Wang Mustard Dissolving Herringbone Pullover and $285 J. Crew Paisley Print Twill Wide Leg Pants paired snakeskin pumps.

Former 106 & Park host turned Entertainment Tonight correspondent Rocsi Diaz was spotted walking her dog and doing some shopping at Intermix on Roberston Boulevard in Los Angeles. She wore a Daydreamer LA See All Tulip-Back Tank Top and ripped denim jeans paired with nude foldover boots which I believe are Givenchy, but don’t quote me on it.

Yesterday Monday (November 26), R&B/Pop singer Alicia Keys was spotted leaving Good Morning America in New York City. She was there to promote her new album Girl On Fire which is now in stores and on iTunes. She styled in a grey sweater, black pants and ankle boots.

Teyana Taylor Inks Her Own Sneaker Through Adidas

Teyana Taylor inks another endorsement deal! This time, the Harlem native collaborated with Adidas for her own line of sneakers which will hit shelves next year. The bronze, high tops have a scaly texture and black laces detailing in the back. They’re scheduled to launch at Adidas retailers on February 16, 2012. Can’t really see the front but the back laces are pretty dope. This sneaker will fix Teyana’s tomboy look! What do you think? The G.O.O.D. Music recording artist is also in the studio working on her debut LP.

Jay-Z, his wife Beyoncé and childhood friend/road manager Ty Ty attended the Nets vs. Knicks game at Brooklyn’s Barclay Center. I guess Brooklyn is the best borough in New York because they defended the Knicks 96-89. As always Jay kept it casual in sweater, camo pants and Air Jordan sneakers. Bey looked cute in a black sweater and leather leggings paired with royal blue suede pumps. Speaking of Bey, she is working on a new HBO documentary and will be performing at the Superbowl during halftime.
