The rapper stunned on the front cover of Vmagazine with photos taken by steven klein and jason ebeyer.
She was interviewed by Sza and the duo talked about her rise in the music industry, breaking barriers and embracing divine femininity on her new album.
In walks SZA with the questions “I’m going to ask the questions that I would want to know as a personal fan of yours. Ok, so did you just fuck around and do every single genre because that’s what we wanna hear? You could do literally anything. I know our little ditty “Kiss Me More” is a different strut and I’m just excited” .
Dona cat in her reply said “I’ve always wanted to try things. I commend artists, like you, who stick to something. It feels pleasing aesthetically and very driven. For me, I want to try all these things, but I’m starting to learn what I’m falling into is a lot of the house, disco, vintage-y essences—that’s where my heart kind of lies. But I still am doing shit that I don’t understand. It’s still really fun!
The duo also talked about her tiktok days and how intentional she gets to be either on the gram considering the fact she is probably the pioneer of tiktok sounds going crazy.
In her reply she said “It’s definitely part of me. I didn’t know, also, that “Streets” would be doing well right now, of all times. I loved “Streets” and for it to blow up on TikTok a few weeks ago is completely out of my expectations”.
Sza went further to ask doja, if she feels she is a beacon for alt black kids or black kids who are multifaceted. “Okay, we’re Black. And being Black, we don’t have to emphasize us being Black, but I feel like your contribution to the Black community is you in your essence. You’re who stops separating interesting, weird Black kids from being randomly excommunicated or separated from Blackness. My niece–who is 19-years-old—loves you. I mean, she banged you four years ago when she was living in Texas surrounded by all white kids. She’s genuinely artsy, separated by herself, Black by herself, and it’s like that’s the space I feel like you’re giving that visibility to the weird Black art kid, that is protective. That is how we move to protect the Black community. Do you feel that? That you’re really being that beacon for alt Black kids, or kids who are multifaceted?”.
I mean, it is just me, but also there are little girls and there are people out there who look like me and can relate to me in that sense. And it is important to have artists like Tyler, the Creator and Pharrell, you know what I mean? That came from a different way of life. Just grew up a weird kid. The skater or the whatever, the nerd. It’s important to have those kinds of influences in your life when you’re like that and feel completely cast out of…the world. I grew up listening to them and that’s what kept me knowing that I could do it, too. I felt like I had friends who didn’t even know me – Doja cat.
