International songstress, Tinashe is the cover star for Galore Magazine’s summer ‘17 Edition.
The 24 year old singer, who showed off her sexy body as she posed for the Magazine, talked all about sexism in the studio, what it’s like to date while famous as well as where she gets her signature style.
“OUR SUMMER ’17 EDITION IS OUT FT. THE FIERCE @tinashenow 🐬🐬🐬 Catch the full cover story, link in bio ✨,” the Magazine wrote on their Instagram page.
Tinashe explored her experience with sexism in an interview with the magazine, noting how she was shunned for being “very cute”, with the assumption that she never worked to achieve all she did.
“The most blatant sexism I received was more toward the beginning of my career. [People] thought of me more as a cute girl who got a deal who didn’t necessarily earn her place here. It was an attitude of, ‘Okay, this girl is hot,’ and a lot of people just really objectifying me in studio situations when I’m trying to make a song with a producer or writer,” she revealed.
In her advice to upcoming entertainers, Tinashe says: “I would say make your own shit. Don’t wait for the perfect collaborator to come around. Don’t wait for the budget to make the best vid in the world. Just be creative and make your stuff. Whether you have to film your own videos or put your music on Soundcloud or YouTube, just get your stuff out there and keep creating as much as you can.
“If you make stuff that’s really good, people will notice it. That’s all you really can do is be as creative as possible and don’t sit around and wait to get discovered or a magic thing to come out of the sky. Just hustle.”
