The fast lane can’t keep up with Tinashe– the 23rd-year-old R&B singer is kicking off fall with her new album, Joyride- whether she’s on a tour bus or dodging L.A. traffic in the driver’s seat.
Tinashe is also the rumored new love interested of Taylor Swift’s ex, Calvin Harris. They have been spotted out several times in LA together. She tell’s Marie Claire in the September issue all about how she joyrides.
On what she drives:“I just got a new car: Ferrari California, black with a red interior.”
On what she sings in the car:“‘Everybody (backstreet’s Back)’ by the Backstreet Boys.”
On her driving:“I probably hit 100 mph before, driving to Vegas. So yeah, I’ve gotten a speeding ticket. I didn’t even try to talk my way out of it. I can’t talk my way out of things if I’m guilty of something. I’m too honest.”
On her driver’s license photo:“My driver’s license photo is bomb. Every tie I go to the DMV, I’m like, ‘Can we reuse that photo?’ I was serving face.”

The MTV Video Music Awards announced the nominees for this year’s ceremony via Facebook live this morning. Leading the pack was Beyoncé with 11 nods for her Emmy-nominated visual album Lemonade.Adele follows with 8 nominations for her record-breaking album 25. The songstress’ will be competing for Best Female Video along with Rihanna ft. Drake “Work”, Sia “Cheap Thrills,” and Ariana Grande “Into You.”
The award show returns to the Big Apple this year. Grande landed 5 nominations along with Drake who nabbed Video of the Year, Best Collaboration, Best Hip-Hop Video, Best Male Video, and Best Art Direction. Kanye West received two nominations for “Famous” while his foe Taylor Swift on the other hand garnered zero nominations. The pop star’s “1989” album came out in 2014 so her recent singles “Wildest Dreams,” “Out of the Woods” and “New Romantics” were ineligible.
West’s infamous track features naked images in the likeness of the rapper and other celebrities, including his wife Kim Kardashian, Swift, Donald Trump, and Bill Cosby. ‘Famous” is at the heart of the current feud between the Chicago emcee and Swift. Kardashian recently delivered receipts; leaking audio of Swift giving West her blessing to the lyrics, “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex.” The “Wildest Dreams” singer originally denied West’s claims he reached out to her prior to releasing the song. She quickly changed her tune, now claiming West did not play her the entire track or reveal the lyrics in full omitting the line, “Why? I made that bitch famous.”
West’s video for the controversial “Famous,” garnered the Video of the Year nomination and will be facing-off with Beyonce’s “Formation,” Adele’s “Hello, “Justin Bieber‘s “Sorry,” and Drake’s “Hotline Bling.” Newcomers Bryson Tiller, Desiigner, Zara Larsson, Lukas Graham, and DNCE, will battle it out for the Best New Artist award.
The late David Bowie, who died from cancer earlier this year, earned four nominations in the categories of Best Direction, cinematography, art direction and editing for “Lazarus.” The video featured the icon frail and lying in bed, eyes bandaged and was released several days before his Jan. 10 death.
