This sentiment might be frowned upon certain circles in America—which will probably result in a bunch of phone taps—but we have to thank the heavens for Cuba, because if it weren't for their knack for making chest-burning liquor, we wouldn't have Bacardi. And Shantavia Finney wouldn't have an alter ego. "I got the name through my past hustle—dancing,” the Jacksonville jaw-dropper stresses. "Bacardi is the name [the club owners] gave me because they said that guys act as though they're tipsy when I'm dancing.” Thanks for the easy transition, B.

Even though the pretty young thing claims to have quit the nightlife for the camera lens, she still keeps her name because in her personal life the Cuban rum fits her. "I asked a guy I was with how the liquor Bacardi makes him feel, cause I don't drink,” she admits. "And he explained that Bacardi is a strong drink and if you drink too much of it you'll wake up the next morning with a hangover. I asked him if I made him feel like that and he said, ‘hell yeah.' Oh, and it goes down smooth—take that how you want.” Well if Ms. Bacardi is doing the giving, who are we to stop her?
