Kanye West’s Protégé Kacy Hill er klar til hendes nærbillede

Med sin stumpe orange bob, porcelænhud og fregner passer Kacy Hill ikke med stereotyper af Kanye West’s meget malignede “multiracial only” model casting calls. Alligevel landede den 23-årige sanger, der hilste fra Phoenix, sin første store pause, da hun blev kastet som backup “danser” til rapperens Yeezus tour efter en kort stil som American Apparel-model. (Den italienske konceptuelle kunstner Vanessa Beecroft, som arbejder med West på sine modeshows, gjorde koreografien.) “I stood for the most part and did static movements,” said Hill recently at Def Jam Upfronts i downtown New York City. “Det er underligt at sige, at jeg var en backup-model, men det er stort set det jeg var.” Hun må have gjort noget rigtigt, for straks efter at have forladt rejsen, begyndte West – efter at have hørt sin demo – straks at underskrive hende til sin G.O.O.D. Music roster. Før hendes debutalbum, Ligesom en kvinde, På grund af den 30. juni blev Hill ærlig om tatoveringer, belfies og arbejder med West.

Hvad var det som at vokse op i Phoenix?

Der var ikke en stor lokal musikscene. I was really obsessed with looking at new artists on MySpace-I would scour music pages all day. Det var uendeligt.

I’m assuming you have some hometown pride when you got “Arizona” tattooed on your hand.

Honestly, I got it in Portland when I was on tour. Jeg ville bare have en tatovering, så det syntes at være fornuftigt! Jeg tror jeg har 13 i alt. Many of them are covered, or white.

Fortæl mig om beslutningen bag din røv tatovering.

One of my best friends from home visited me in L.A., and she wanted to get her first tattoo for a while. Så jeg sagde, “If you get your first tattoo, I get ‘babe’ tattooed on my ass.” Det er min favorit.

På dømme af din Instagram, tror jeg, du har sikkert mødt den belfie.

Honestly, I do not even know how to make a belfie. It’s just so, so I have many people willing to take pictures of my ass for me. [Griner]

Har du planer om at komme tilbage til modellering nu, da American Apparel officielt har lukket?

Jeg tror, ​​at mode komplementerer musik godt, så det handler kun om at bruge dem begge til at skabe mere plads og gøre den anden mere meningfyldende. [American Apparel closing] føles bittersød. It has been the catalyst for everything in my adult life.

Hvem er nogle af dine yndlingsdesignere i øjeblikket?

Gucci for the past half a year has been very special; Balenciaga lige nu er fantastisk. Jeg kan virkelig godt lide Alyx og Saint Laurent er også sjovt.

Hvad var det som om at være på Yeezus tour?

Alt var sindssygt. I have never been a religious person, but there is 100 percent a very connecting, spiritual moment in being around that many people and seeing the energy, especially against a person. Det er guddommeligt. It is church-like – the power it has in humans. Den erfaring har virkelig fået mig til at føle det til mig selv en dag. Jeg sluttede med at forlade efter den første etape af turen. It was amazing, but I needed to make my own things. Then after I left, I think that it was asked that the [West] should be like: “Oh sh-t. She left just my tur.” [Griner]

Har Kanye givet dig noget råd om at bryde ind i musikbranchen?

I have been very lucky because he lets me do my thing and spend time discovering myself and developing my own sound. I think it’s a really valuable thing for a new artist.

Hvad er inspirationen bag dit debutalbum?

It’s about things, I feel and things drive me and make me feel something. I listen to it now, I feel very vulnerable knowing that everyone knows all of these things about me.

You are also very open on social mediaespecially when it comes to politics.

I try to create space for people to feel safe and understand things. Det er min stikkontakt. At being a multifaceted, educated woman, it is important to speak and have opinions and not feel that you have to be silent.

I have noticed that you do not have much makeup. Are you trying to make a statement there?

Ikke rigtig. I have never wanted a taste on my face. I have fregner, so the foundation does not work for me. I want a lip color sometimes and mascara, and if I have a breakout, I will of course put a concealer on. Udover det er jeg meget vild med hudpleje. Jeg vasker stadig kun med Cetaphil ($ 7; target.com). It’s the best cleaner ever. Jeg har for nylig opdaget Allies of Skin-de har en maske på natten ($ 109; bloomingdales.com) og en daglig maske ($ 89; bloomingdales.com) og en tåge ($ 55; bloomingdales.com), der er den most fugtgivende og utrolige ting på hele planeten. Jeg kan godt lide Kate Somerville’s gedemælk øjencreme ($ 38; sephora.com). I also use mange arkmasker: Erno Laszlo Hvidmarmor ($ 80 / pakke 5: saksfifthavenue.com) is my favorite-it makes me feel really bright and refreshed.
