Former RUN-DMC star REVEREND RUN was shocked when his daughter told him she would be posing for sexy men's magazine Maxim. The rapper's 21-year-old daughter VANESSA is an aspiring actress and has signed with the prestigious Ford Modeling Agency in New York City. He explains, "My daughter is in Maxim magazine. She has to wear a bathing suit. Oh, Jesus. "She said, 'Daddy, I have to be in Maxim magazine.' I said, 'Can I come to the photo shoot?' "She said no, so I sent ANGELA, my youngest daughter to go and watch." Although he is an ordained reverend priest, Rev Run, real name JOSEPH SIMMONS, insists that he tries to keep an open mind. He adds, "I'm just trying to make sure I can keep my kids guided correctly and let them have a fun time at the same time. "Sometimes it's hard to let go. You have to close your eyes and hope for the best. "I've seen the photos, but haven't seen the magazine, it hasn't made it's way into the house, (but) I'm open."
