charli xcx talks pussy power + '90s mariah

behind the scenes of our cover shoot.

Charli XCX has been one of our favorite musicians for awhile now—we loved her since she was just a badass teen performing at underground clubs in her platform Buffalo shoes. And there's no doubting that 2014's been her year, reaching a wider audience than ever thanks to her collaborations with Iggy Azalea and her song "Boom Clap," which became the anthem of The Fault In Our Stars. Now, with her new album Sucker on the way, it seems like 2015 will be more Charli-focused than ever. And that's just how we like it.

Go behind-the-scenes of our cover shoot with the outspoken 22-year-old as she talks about pussy power, synesthesia, and '90s Mariah (duh).
