Montana Fishburne: Up, Close & Extremely Personal

Comments (124)



Talk about making a scene. Over the past week, Montana Fishburne has done just that -- with the news of her official debut as an adult entertainment star.

Who?

The 18-year-old daughter of acclaimed actor Laurence Fishburne announced plans to release a self-titled DVD project through the top-selling porn company, Vivid Entertainment. The news sent shock waves throughout the entertainment industry and became fodder for mainstream news programs like 'The Today Show' and 'The View.' Amid all the hysteria came her rather odd admission of wanting to pattern her career after that of media magnet Kim Kardashian.

An outcry ensued in the blogosphere and on message boards, with many claiming that Montana is ruining her father's acting legacy.

Yes, her father is the Tony Award-winning, Academy Award-nominated thespian of films such as 'Boyz N' TheHood,' 'What's Love Got to Do With It?' and the best-selling 'Matrix' movies, but Montana Fishburne is her own woman, as she attests. For a child of the rich and famous, she's mostly under the radar.

We never heard of the Westchester born., California-based hottie being accused of much, not withstanding a dust-up with LAPD. (Documents were unveiled about her being arrested for prostitution.)

Black Voices caught up with Montana to find out what everybody wants to know.

Black Voices: To what do you attribute to all the hysteria?

Montana Fishburne: People are going to talk no matter what. I'm excited that people are talking about it. I hope everything turns to more positive. I mean, they should be more excited about new porn coming out. I haven't seen a young black female porn star in a long time.

BV: How much did you make off of this? Was it six figures?

MF: I don't know.

BV: Well, everyone wants to know what your father thinks about it?

MF: I mean, I haven't talked to him directly yet. We have conflicting schedules, so it's been hard. But, he's upset. I hope he supports me. But as soon as I talk to him, you guys are going to hear something.

BV: Why do you think he would be upset?

MF: I mean, no one wants to see their daughter have sex on TV. Fathers are usually upset when they hear about their daughters losing their virginity. So I don't think he wants to see it blasted across the world. This is something I wanted to do; it's a goal that I had. I think he'll be proud that I accomplished one of my goals. So if I'm happy, I'm sure that he'll be happy, too.

BV: How long have you wanted to do this?

MF: Since I was in high school. It's been a little secret of mine.

BV: Well, since you bought up virginity when did you lose yours?

MF: I lost my virginity when I was 16.

BV: How has Kim Kardashian really influenced you?

MF: She inspired me to go to Vivid. I always wanted to do porn. That was a given. So when I decided to start getting in to it, to see how I was going to go about it, I looked to her. Kim Kardashian released her sex tape with Vivid. Paris Hilton, Kendra Wilkinson, Pamela Anderson, all these people. And they're well known for having celebrity sex tapes. And Kim's is the one that did the best. Not did the best, but I felt like she got the most hype and buzz out of it. And she decided not to do porn. I want to do another film. And if I do decide to go mainstream, I feel releasing porn with Vivid is the best company to do it with, because they have other avenues that they deal with. I'm loving Vivid right now. They're the best.

BV: Now what's your association with Brian Pumper? He's saying that you have another movie coming out?

MF: I did a music video for him, but with my porn career, I'm focusing on Montana Fishburne with Vivid. That's what it is. The whole Brian Pumper thing, I look at it as a mistake honestly. And I'm trying to get away from that and focus on Vivid and the release of this movie.

BV: So were you known as Chippy D when you were with him?

MF: No, that was for a music video. I knew him and that was it.

BV: Do you think Brian Pumper will have a rap career now that he has a video out?

MF: No, I don't think his music appeals to the mainstream.

BV: When are we going to see you and him in action?

MF: Me and Brian are no longer in contact.

BV: Do you think he's exploiting you?

MF: Yes, I feel taken advantage by Brian Pumper. I don't really want to go into details about the situation. Jeremy [Greene, an aspiring porn actor], he feels for me, he knows how I feel about it. He has talked to Brian, and they have dealt with each other, because I don't even want to deal with him anymore. I'm not in contact with Brian Pumper, and I'm just trying to get rid of the situation.

BV: Who is Chippy D, what does that stand for?

MF: I've been Chippy D forever. That's just something that I had as I was growing up. I was chippy and really happy.

BV: Now, who's Jeremy Greene?

MF: Jeremy Greene, that's my boyfriend. I met him when I was in high school through a mutual friend. I went to New Roads in Santa Monica and he went to Fairfax.

BV: And he's a porn star also named J Pipes?

MF: Yes. There is footage of me and him, but it's not released yet. I don't know when it's going to come out, but people should look forward to seeing us together.

BV: Now, you were busted for hooking. Is that true?

MF: No, I have a trespassing conviction but not hooking. I have a trespassing charge from November, that's what it was for. Trespassing.

BV: What do you think of people's feedback saying that you're tarnishing your father's name?

MF: I mean, people are going to say what they're going to say. It hurts that people are thinking that I'm doing this to shame my father. That is not true. He's an actor. When he was playing Ike Turner, he was beating a woman, I didn't feel bad about it because he was acting. Porn is something that I wanted to do; acting is something that he wanted to do. So it's not to shame him; it's something on my own. I feel like they should want to encourage me and support me and be happy because it's not degrading to me. If it was leaked how all these other peoples are, I would feel ashamed about it. But I'm not. It's something that I'm proud of. I'm proud of my body, and I'm proud of my work and the performance that I gave. So all the people sending out negatives should find a different way to look at it and be happy for me.

BV: So where did you learn all those tricks in the DVD?

MF: From my boyfriend. We have a lot of fun together. I like to have fun and he likes to have fun and experiment. We have a healthy sex life, and it came in handy when it came to shooting this video.

BV: What did your mother think of the video?

MF: She's not happy, but she wants me to be happy. She's more concerned with if I'm ok. I love my mom so much. She's supportive. I'm happy that she's not dying over this. My mom is more conservative than my dad is.

BV: How have the offers been since the news broke that you were doing this tape?

MF: Pretty good. I got some offers for all kinds of things. But I'm not making any decisions on too much now. I really want this video to come out first.

BV: So when you're not having sex on camera what else do you like to do?

MF: Normal day-to-day stuff. I love the beach. I'm at the mall. I love to shop.

BV: What do you see for yourself in 10 years?

MF: In 10 years, I'll be 29 years old. I hope to have a business. I don't know what kind yet, but I'm into spas, hair and nail shops. My mother has fitness centers in Westchester. So I want to have my own businesses as well as continuing in entertainment.

BV: Are there more Vivid projects in the works?

MF: Yes, I've been talking to them about releasing a second movie. If and when I release my second movie for Vivid, I want it to be totally different. It's still going to be Montana Fishburne, but you'll see a new concept.

BV: What encouraging words would you give women that have to resort to prostitution and sex?

MF: I mean, I would never want to encourage anyone to resort to prostitution and drugs. But I feel if there's young women out there who are free-spirited like me and enjoy their body and are not ashamed -- and have dreams that people look down on -- don't be afraid of them. And just pursue your dreams even if people have their ideas about it. And be true to yourself.

The (Wayward) Kids of The Rich and Famous

The (Wayward) Kids of The Rich and Famous
When it comes to the rich and famous, there is never a shortage of headlines to feed the media's appetite. Many keep their children out of the limelight -- and for good reason. However, some children of the rich and famous make headlines of their own, and more often than not, it's for their behavior rather than their talents. Here is a list of 20 children of the rich and famous who made the news for everything from sex tapes to murder.

The (Wayward) Kids of The Rich and Famous

Name: Maia Campbell
Family Roots: Daughter of novelist Bebe Moore Campbell and Ellis Gordon
What a Shame: Since her mother's death in 2006, Campbell has experienced a downward spiral of mental illness and substance abuse. Campbell is in serious need of intervention, and we hope she receives the help she needs.

The (Wayward) Kids of The Rich and Famous

Name: Kim and Khloe Kardashian
Family Roots: Daughters of O.J. Simpson lawyer Robert Kardashian and Kris Jenner
What a Shame: In 2007, Khloe Kardashian was arrested for DUI and sentenced to three years' probation. Judging by her mugshot, Khloe seemed unconcerned, as she smirked, probably because, well, she's rich. Also, that year, a sex tape made by big sis Kim and her former boyfriend, R&B singer Ray J, leaked to the public. The tape catapulted Kim to celebrity status.

The (Wayward) Kids of The Rich and Famous

Name: Montana Fishburne
Family Roots: Daughter of seasoned actor Laurence Fishburne
What a shame: In July, Fishburne made headlines after announcing that she would be following in socialite Kim Kardashian's footsteps by releasing her own sex tape. We can only wonder what her father is thinking right about now.

The (Wayward) Kids of The Rich and Famous

Name: Bobbi Kristina
Family Roots: The child of R&B legends Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown (who Houston once called the king of R&B)
What a Shame: In 2007, the once precocious Bobbi Kristina raised eyebrows when she posted suggestive pictures of herself engaging in questionable activities on her MySpace page. Thankfully, she grew out of that phase and his since avoided the limelight to just be a regular teen.

The (Wayward) Kids of The Rich and Famous

Name: JoJo Simmons
Family Roots: Son of hip-hop legend Joseph "Reverend Run" Simmons and Valerie Vaughn
What a Shame: In May 2009, Simmons was arrested and charged with two counts of possession of marijuana and one count of resisting arrest, when he allegedly tried to ram his BMW into a cop car. He has also been slammed with two misdemeanors for criminal use of drug paraphernalia. Since then, Simmons had steered clear of trouble.

The (Wayward) Kids of The Rich and Famous

Name: Jamal "Shyne" Barrow
Family Roots: Son of Imeon Myvette and the Prime Minster of Belize Dean Barrow
What a Shame: Barrow didn't grow up with a silver spoon in his mouth, as he has several times admitted to stealing and hustling as a kid. At 16, music was his escape, with his lyrical talents landing him a deal with the famous Bad Boy Records. After a nine-year stint for criminal use and possession of a firearm and reckless endangerment, Barrow, was released from jail in 2009 and has since turned his life around.

The (Wayward) Kids of The Rich and Famous

Name: Caroline Giuliani
Family Roots: Daughter of former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani and television reporter and actress Donna Hanover
What a Shame: In August, Giuliani was taken into custody at a Sephora store in New York City after allegedly stealing more than $100 worth of cosmetics. This one had many of us scratching our heads. Ah, the rich and famous never cease to amaze.

The (Wayward) Kids of The Rich and Famous

Name: Latoya Jackson
Family Roots: Joe Jackson and Katherine Jackson
What a Shame: Often labeled the black sheep of the Jackson family, Latoya released a tell-all book, called 'La Toya: Growing Up in the Jackson Family,' in 1991, in which she claimed (among other things) that the Jackson clan suffered physical and psychological abuse at the hands of their father, Joe.

The (Wayward) Kids of The Rich and Famous

Name: Nicole Ritchie
Family Roots: Daughter of Lionel Richie and Brenda Richie
What a Shame: Before turning her life around to focus on her growing family with boyfriend and Good Charlotte front man Joel Madden, Ritchie constantly made headlines for partying and drug and alcohol abuse. In 2006, after making a splash with her gal pal Paris Hilton on the reality show 'The Simple Life,' Richie was arrested and charged with possession of heroin while driving with a suspended driver's license.
