Charli XCX follows in the footsteps of Iggy Azalea, Ciara and Joe Jonas by posing for #Legend. The Brit’s shoot is typically quirky and low-key. She simply rocks a series of cool outfits in and around a hotel room. The accompanying interview is a little more eventful. For starters, Charli opens up about her celebrity friends. “Diplo lives around the corner, which is quite fun,” the 24-year-old reveals. “I’ve recently been having fun hot-tub parties with Flume and we took them to a strip club on a Sunday night. That’s our new thing: strip club Sundays.”

Sounds like fun! Charli professed her love for a certain pop icon. “My legend is Britney Spears,” she says. “I remember seeing the ‘Hit Me Baby One More Time’ video when I was growing up and I remember thinking, ‘Woah, that’s crazy.’ I saw her in Las Vegas. My friends and I had a good time.” Things got a little more real when the “Vroom Vroom” diva opened up about her struggles in the music industry. “It’s definitely hard. I feel, like, [it’s] in a real state of flux right now, just because of the way you rate an artist, and that nobody really seems to know what an album is anymore.”

“Is it a mixtape? A Spotify playlist? Is it actually a physical album?” Charli asks. “No-one really knows. Everyone is just trying to do new things. I was born out of Myspace and that seems like ages ago, since it’s all about streaming. I was popping off when it wasn’t all about streaming but wasn’t quite about selling albums.” See the video for the pop star’s summery collaboration with Mura Masa below.
