Shahira reveals 'tiny' encounter in LA adventure
IRISH model Shahira Barry has been getting to grips with life in LA – extravagant parties at the Playboy Mansion, glamorous photo shoots and even dealing with moody A-listers.
The sultry Galway girl was taken aback on a recent shoot for US superstar Chris Brown's latest music video when controversial rapper Nicky Minaj arrived with a list of demands, including no direct eye contact.
The "tiny" star was collaborating with Brown on his latest track Love More and made sure that she wouldn't be disturbed by fans talking part in the shoot.
"Nicky was professional at what she was doing, but she changed the atmosphere of the room when she walked in," Shahira told the Diary.
"The rumour was that Nicky didn't even want people to look at her, and on other shoots told people to leave if they looked in her direction.
"She is like marmite, you either love her or hate her, but I personally love her," added the 22-year-old.
While she is due to return to Ireland in September, the qualified school teacher says she has learned so much about Hollywood and vowed to return there as soon as possible.
