“I’m obsessed with death,” says rapper-singer Brooke Candy before taking a big bite of an egg-white scramble. We’re eating at Los Angeles’ famed Chateau Marmont, but as someone who doesn’t buy into the hype of who’s who in Hollywood, she’s not a regular here. “But the label is paying for it, so fuck it,” she whispers, and then laughs. 

She turns to show me the patch reading death that is hand-sewn to the back of her black denim jacket, a gift from a designer friend. “Death is honest. I’m not scared of it. Bring it on,” says the 26-year-old. She puckers her lips, which are coated in cherry red lipstick from a line she created for M.A.C last year. The color is called Mind Control.
