Ruth Brinkley, whose recording artist name is Shorty Real, pauses while recording a track in a makeshift garage studio
in Sunrise, Florida. "A lot of people want to see the 'booty shake and sex sells' image," says Brinkley, "Im against that
and I'm really tired of it actually. It is hard being a female trying to go for the positive side because a lot of people don't want
to hear that. Even (record) labels and the industry (are) so in tune with the sex image, but I've got talent and I want that to be known."
