Tinashe strips off for the latest issue of Paper magazine.
Covering their new ‘Youth Issue,’ the ‘All Hands on Deck’ singer can be seen decked out in Moschino and other top designers a-front and inside the pop culture mag’s pages.
In addition to drawing comparisons to Britney Spears‘ infamous 1999 ‘Rolling Stone’ cover (via the pic seen above), Tinashe talks about her new album ‘Joyride,’ dealing with industry pressure, and so much more.
Get into her thoughts below:

ON BEING A WOMAN IN THE INDUSTRY: “…as a young woman in the industry. A lot of people think, ‘Oh you’re just a cute girl.’ It has nothing to do with your artistry or your heart or work or anything like that. It’s obviously just about what you look like.”
ON HER NEW ALBUM: “You can’t have too many chefs in the kitchen. You have to stay true to your own instincts and just have your own vision. I think that is very important. Otherwise you just get lost in the sauce.”
ON PRESSURE: “I don’t feel pressure to look any way so much as I feel pressure to act a certain way. People are always shocked to know that I don’t date around with other celebrities. [But] it’s just not my style. I’m not trying to be well known because of the people I’m dating, or the people that I’m seen with. I’d rather just be known for my music or my art.
ON CONTROL: “It’s important nowadays to have your own perspective and get involved, because it is such a male-dominated industry. We need to gain back control.”
