Tinashe is featured on the cover of DAZED magazine’s latest issue. In the feature, the R&B songstress participates in a “different” photoshoot where instead of showing off her body, she displayed a more “artistic” side — poses include licking a mini-toilet, lighting her tongue and climbing a tree. In the interview, she talks about everything from being inspired by Michael Jackson and Britney Spears to working with Dr. Luke and Max Martin on her new album Joyride. She also speaks on the subject of being a role model for her fans, saying that she does not want to be “typical” and encourages girls to be independent and to follow their own decisions. Check out the photos above, watch the behind-the-scenes video of the shoot below, and visit the full feature here.
