Kim Petras Is A Glam Goddess In New Spread For ‘Notion’
Kim Petras is easily one of the hardest working people on the planet. Not only that, but the 26-year-old is exceptionally generous. After launching her second era in April, she proceeded to grace us with a new song every week. That included bops, bangers and ballads such as “Broken,” “Got My Number” and “Another One.” Last week, she capped off the ambitious schedule with the unveiling of her pop-saving project Clarity. The collection houses the previous tracks and three new gems including her latest single “Icy.” But she still wasn’t done. This week she returned with another gift for humanity: a gorgeous photoshoot for Notion.
Posing for Brian Vu, the pop princess serves something fierce in every frame. She also showcases some very daring looks. In one photo, she dons a raven-haired wig and flame-covered dress. In another, the platinum icon is run through with a sword. Even still, she looks like a glam goddess. The accompanying interview is also a must-read. In it, she sheds some light on what pop music means to her. “To me, pop music is an escape from my problems,” she explained. “I can put on my headphones and listen to it for three and a half minutes to forget about everything that’s bothering me. It’s always been that way for me. I feel like pop definitely saved my life in so many ways.”
However, she admitted that now there’s a bit more work involved when she listens. “When I listen to a new song for the first few times, I’m like ‘fuck, this is so good. I wish I would’ve written this’ and then I analyze it – unless I’m at a club having fun and hear a pop song, then I completely forget everything.” She also opened up about her favorite lyrics on Clarity. As it turns out, that would be “I’m the bitch with the sauce, apparently” on the title track. Why? “It’s just sassy and cocky and funny,” she said. “When we came up with that lyric it was just the best thing in the world. All the lyrics on the second verse pop off, but I haven’t gotten tired of that lyric yet.” I could not agree more.
