It was no pants from Angela Simmons on Thursday as the “Growing Up Hip-Hop” star took to Instagram during her coronavirus social distancing. The 32-year-old daughter to rapper Rev Run had opted out of glam as she reminded fans that she’s stuck at home – a little influencing is still on the cards, though.
Angela’s post came as she embraced her partner status with Fashion Nova. The affordable clothing brand may have full-blown partnerships with rapper Cardi B, but it still relies on the micro-influencers.
Angela’s photo came from her daylit living room. The reality star and entrepreneur was striking a casual pose, seen sitting amid gray couches with fluffy cushions. Angela was 100% makeup-free as she showcased her natural beauty, with the camera also taking in hints of her super-shapely and toned thighs as she posed in a tie-dye hoodie in purple and multi-tonal blues.
The VH1 star posed with her gorgeous brown and curled hair cascading down her shoulders. Her plumped-up lips seemed proof that she can pull of a Kylie Jenner without any cosmetics.
Angela’s 6.5 million followers seem to have spotted the update. The star’s post clocked over 33,000 likes in two hours, with the comments section quickly filling up.
“Don’t ever lose the passion.The Spark .Keep the fire burning? always,” one fan wrote.
“??????? GORGEOUS!!!!!!! ✨” was another comment.
Of course, mentions of COVID-19 were made as millions lead new lives from their homes.
“I’d definitely quarantine with you,” one fan told Angela.
“HAIR” was all one fan could manage.
Angela has been fairly active on Instagram during her quarantine. A recent underpants TikTok dance hit 1 million views.
Angela’s post today wasn’t a full-blown ad, but it nonetheless saw the star influencing in the traditional way – “Inside with it FashionNovaPartner @fashionnova,” she had captioned her post.
Earnings on Instagram correlate with following, something that experts at Vox broke down in their estimates.
“Influencers with up to 1 million followers can get $10,000 [per post], depending on the platform, and 1 million followers and up, you’re getting into territory where they can charge $100,000. Some can even get $250,000 for a post!”
Angela may well reach 7 million followers this year.
2020 saw Angela launch her Purpose app. The feminine-strong app connects women with a platform to share their voices and lives.
“Real Women – Real Stories … I am Angela Simmons … I grew up in Queens , Ny … I gained my confidence through truly loving myself no matter what. I learned the true meaning of love when I stopped putting up with BS others bring to the table. Ok is not ok for my life! I want incredible!! So I’m going to get it !,” the announcement post read.
