Most people would accept cash to star in a music video. Though not everyone has the same idea about compensation. Some people think of long-term investments, like Jordyn Woods. At just 23-years-old, Woods proves that she’s a smart businesswoman. Back in 2019, she accepted a Birkin bag from rapper Gunna to star on the set of his new video “Baby Birkin.” While the gesture left many people scratching their heads, Woods promises that the Birkin bag acted as a form of payment. More importantly, Gunna’s gift will one day make the actress and model one wealthy woman.
Jordyn Woods Copped Herself A Birkin Bag In New Music Video
When it comes to investing in our future, tv personality Jordyn Woods is about that long-term plan. Back in 2019, Woods accepted a Birkin bag as a form of payment to star in rapper Gunna’s new music video “Baby Birkin.” While the luxury bag goes for around $12,000 to $200,000, most people would’ve just accepted cash. Rappers especially charge hefty prices for features. However, Jordyn Woods revealed she and her team had other plans for compensation.
During a recent interview with Complex’s Speedy Morman, Woods spilled the details on the how the business deal went down. According to the Sacrifice actress, Gunna and her had remained friends for years prior to starring in the video. Furthermore, “her team negotiated to receive the Birkin bag as a form of payment.” The detail comes off as vague, especially considering that Woods herself hadn’t been apart of the negotiating process at all.
Though, the star made it clear that she doesn’t work for free. Moreover, she considered the unusual form of payment as an investment. “It’s an investment because the value goes up . . . I got a little stock,” the star shared during the interview. With 11 Birkin bags already tucked away in her closet, Woods will for sure be able to sell the luxury bags for millions.
