PINK hurred barb queen Nicki Minaj graces the front of our newest edition, REVOLT / RECALL / RENEW, on shelves across the globe from Thursday. It celebrates all that is punky, charged and brimming with zeal amidst gloomy, penniless February and March. Ringleader Azealia Banks chats candidly of past hardships and how, in spite of everything, she could foresee nothing but a star-spangled life in the distance. Minaj is similarly buoyant, and talks of her various personalities, love of cooking and Barbie doll obsession.
Other contenders include pint-sized LA punksters The Bots, bratty hip-hop duo Rizzle Kicks and New York’s most hyped band, Friends. Elsewhere, a host of film, fashion, beauty and art’s strongest new talents are interviewed (including rising actors Tom Cullen and Julia Garner) as well as known-and-loved deities Dolce & Gabbana, Giorgio Armani, David Cronenburg and Sharon Stone. Enjoy!
