XCX appears on the cover of the December 2014/January 2015 issue of Nylon magazine. She talks about feminism, her confidence, and expressing herself.
There’s a video of me dancing to the Spice Girls with one of those toy microphones when I was, like, four, maybe younger. It’s a classic home video – my dad comes into the frame, and he’s doing high kicks and stuff. It still exists, but nowhere online, thankfully.
XCX appears on the cover of the November 2014 issue of NKD magazine. She talks about her song I Love It, working with Iggy Azalea, and the song Boom Clap.
I feel like we were both seen as underdogs prior to ‘Fancy,’ and now everyone is after us, and I think it’s funny,
Charli is profiled for the cover of the October/November Complex. As a female pop star:
There’s always a catch. Like: “Does she really do that? I heard her mum wrote that song.” I read that about Lorde. I’m like: As if! Just because she’s young and successful, why is someone trying to take that away from her? It’s because she’s highly intelligent and a female who’s killing it. She’s doing something different, and people are afraid of that.
Charli graces the cover and talks about her plans to work with Rihanna and Gwen Stefani, writing angry music after I Love It charted and redecorating her country mansion in her spare time.
I’ve had to just make cutthroat decisions. I can’t f— around.
Charli features on the October issue’s cover and talks about private jets, VMA parties and top 10 singles:
I feel like an ice cube floating around in a sea of chill. It’s not something that interests me. I really do just want to be in the studio or on tour all the time, and everything else is just beginning to freak me out. I guess that’s what being a pop star is, you know?
Charli appears on the September cover and talks about writing Sucker in a hotel in Sweden, working with Rivers Cuomo and Rostam Batmanglij and whether she thinks the days are gone when sexism dictated the media profile of female pop stars:
I wish I could say yes, but I don’t think so. Maybe it is just a pop music thing, but I don’t feel like it’s changed. Now, more than ever, I get songs sent to me by people who think they should be writing my songs for me. In interviews, people are surprised when I say I wrote something myself. That is frustrating. They automatically assume I didn’t in the first place.
