The 23-year-old singer opened up to the Canadian magazine on a variety of subjects, including her music inspirations, her love of “glamah” (glamour) and her addiction to social media.
On the dramatic colors of her new Rimmel collection: “I based the Rimmel collection names on something that I find interesting — the world of sex and intimacy. They don’t have to be non-approachable subjects.” (For example, she’s got a nail polish line with fun names like ‘White Hot Love’ and ‘Midnight Rendezvous.’ Who wouldn’t want that on their nails?!)
On her love of “glamah”: “When I wear crazy stuff, [my mom]’ll say, ‘I need sex. I need glamah.’ I got obsessed with makeup and makeup artists when I was young, with people like Kevyn Aucoin.”
On fellow female inspiration: “Beyonce built her f—ing foundation from the bottom. I think that’s the career every female artist wants to have.” But as far as musical inspiration, the deep vibrato of Gwen Stefani is more her style.
On whether she’s a “boss bitch”: “What does a boss feel like? I can’t say it, I can’t. Because a boss-ass bitch doesn’t say they’re a boss. Everyone knows.”
On collaborating with Prince: “People like Prince don’t have to care about anything, but they care because they want music for the future to be great. It makes me feel like, ‘Jesus f—ing Christ! They think I can do it!’ It makes me proud to have a voice.”
On her obsession with social media: “I’m on it as soon as I wake up. I scroll with one eye open. It’s like a drug.” (We feel ya, Rita.)
