Tinashe returns today on the cover of Dazed magazine’s newest issue. In the cover interview, Tinashe discusses everything from early inspirations (Britney Spears…Jeez I feel old) to working with industry heavyweights Dr. Luke and Max Martin on her new album, Joyride. Tinashe even touched on the reasoning for her album title:
“The best part of life for me is these new experiences. I want it to be exciting, I want it to keep you on your toes, I want people to not know what to expect. It’s the perfect title for this point in my life…I feel like I’m on a joyride all the time. It’s dangerous, it’s an adventure, it’s emotional.”
Tinashe also touches on her career moves and the pressures of being a role model for fans. “I don’t feel the need to be super-conservative in my choices or be a typical ‘role model’. I think I can influence girls to be independent – how to make their own decisions, how to go after their goals and not just sit around waiting to get married.”
