Angel Haze has officially been embraced by the fashion community. Proof stands in the March issue of British Vogue.
The confident 22-year-old posed for the fashion publication and opened up about her image– often questioned by critics. As a self-title “pansexual,” the rapper says her image is nothing to be toyed with. She also speaks about her love of black clothing, latest album and Edgar Allen Poe.
On dressing sexier as an artist: “People try to tell me what to wear – that hyper-sexualised look. I’m usually a very covered up person, but when I first started, so many people said you need to dress sexier. I was like, ‘Dude I weigh 102 pounds. I look like a f**king teenager; there is nothing here at all.'”
On rapping about the issues she went through as a child: “I could only listen to that twice. I didn’t go through everything I went through in life to water it down or sugarcoat it. There are so many issues that people won’t speak of and you just need to shine a light on it.”
On what she wants to do in the future: “I have plans for charitable outreaches; I want to start a house for troubled teens who are in abusive homes or don’t feel loved and launch a scholarship fund for the homeless. I know it sounds like Miss America, but I do really mean it.”
