CupcakKe: A Rebellious Musical Star

Affinity Magazine gave me the pleasure of interviewing one of my favorite (if not my only) rappers. We spoke on all sorts of topics such as her religious upbringing, who she sees herself as a gay icon and how the process behind her groundbreaking new album, Audacious, was similar (or different) to her previous two albums (Cum Cake and S.T.D.).

DAY-N-NIGHT

I’ve been pushing myself to explore many more boundaries of life, which is by far the scariest thing that I’ve done.

THE BATTLE OF LOOKS

We all have different taste in people. I’ve showed many different men to my friends that I personally find attractive, but are horrifying in their eyes. I don't believe that I am disrespecting any groups of people because, at the end of the day, nobody knows what my taste really is.

FASHION JUDGEMENTS

I don’t think you need to dress like Michael Jackson on tour on a day-to-day basis to have a critique on someone else’s style. Fashion is all about point of view, not what you throw on your back.

(FALL)ING

It’s fall and the trees are gently letting go of their crunchiest leaves for us to have fun with. I’m kidding. That’s completely unrealistic in California during September; I say the cold and tree crunching will arrive until November.

MARC JACOBS: Fuel to Culture Appropriation

Should fashion enthusiasts force themselves into a small box of nothing but A-line dresses and jeans with basic converse? Or should we all expand our horizons to much more diverse runway fashion? No and yes.

I ABSOLUTELY ADORE WOMEN.

When I’m feeling a little lost on what topics to write about, I write pieces that are are inspired by poems.

TRANSITIONS

In typical Fernando fashion, I begun over-thinking and asked myself if I was prepared for the real world. Do I have what it takes to survive?

BLEEDING ART

Maybe someone wants to be a stripper or maybe someone wants to be President of the United States. All of our dreams are completely valid and it’s ultimately up to the person if they want to pursue them. Not yours.

THE ISSUES OF MY SOUL

The month of September has become the holy month of fashion for me; magazines are launching their biggest issues of the year while the fall collections are on their way.

SUMMER NOT LOVIN’

There was a point – a few weeks ago – where I begun actually experiencing signs of excitement for the “reopening” of school but after returning today from registration: I completely regret those feelings.

HOUSE PETS

The current state of my life is not at it’s peak for a teenager; I’m at the point of a break down, but I’ve somehow managed very well to keep myself sane with the help of nature.

WORDS

This shoot was inspired by one of the most iconic albums by Madonna. 
Can you guess?
Meanwhile, read about my anxiety and the weird effect that words have on me.

IN THE NIGHT

 “A sewer bitch in a high fashion town” is a reference that I use to describe Kanye West’s Yeezy collections. 
Does it make any sense?
Yes.

LADYSWIM

While watching other shows I realized that this collection was much more realistic for the beach, or for poolside “chilling.” The looks definitely still kept their adventurous look.

NAMES

The funniest part about everything in general is the constant trolling of feminism on social network sites. 
Who’s triggered now? 
Definitely not “the feminists.”

THE FRIENDLIEST OF FRIENDS

The year 2014 was the year of over-exaggerating my stories/age with my pretentious, online fucks that I had for friends. 
It’s true.

REPRESENTATION

However, it’s so contradictory for him to say that he doesn’t want any sort of affection on TV (to not ignite any sexual/emotional feelings upon the young child) but then after say that he notices his young kids interest in women. What that screams to me is “Ah! I clearly have an issue with gay people.”

PROUD

They think that it’s some sort of way of marketing ourselves and not being problematic but people always find ways about being negative in, what should be, positive situations. But it’s not [a way of marketing ourselves], a lot of us just don’t care anymore. We just want to express ourselves.

CELEBRITY

I’ll probably never understand the obsession of celebrity style because it doesn’t seem worthy of my “worship.”

AMERICAN LIFE

All people are welcome to America, until those “people” are people of color - something important that I read off Twitter: the most annoying, yet addicting app out there.

SEX

Me? Answering sex advice? One of my friends has mentioned to me that guys under the age of 35 are generally bad at sex. How’s that for advice?

YOU GIVE ME FEVER

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, I’m sick. I have a headache, semi-sore throat, and am unable to quit sneezing like a maniac.

HARD CANDY

There is something that is so great about sitting down, possibly a bed, [my] bed with Barbra Streisand playing in the background.
