Filed in just two hours, “Toxic” was shot on location at the Southdown Plantation in de LaFleur’s Louisiana hometown.

“I remember always being drawn into its beauty and then also acknowledging it as a plantation,” de LaFleur said. “So I’ve always wanted to shoot there, reclaim it, and turn around what that memory would be and feel like to me, for me and mine.”

“Toxic” is the on her album, The Green Horse.

Studly And Stunning: Princess Nokia Flosses Her Tomboyish Tatas For Playboy’s Equality Issue

Princess Nokia Talks Androgyny, Music And More For PLAYBOY Equality Issue

Major props to PLAYBOY Magazine on their new EQUALITY issue which is out now and features genre and gender bending singer/rapper Princess Nokia clothed and in her birthday suit discussing her gender non-conformity, her music and challenges she’s faced.

Here’s a few choice quotes via PLAYBOY:

“Every day I feel different. Every day it’s either masc or femme or in between. Every day is goth or bohemian,” Princess Nokia tells Playboy, “When I wake up and feel an energy, I coexist with it.”

“I’m a gender-nonconforming androgynous person,” Nokia says. “But some people are like, ‘What happened to your tomboy phase?’ ”

“I love being proud of how studly I am, how boyish and how manly I can appear. I love being androgynous,” Nokia says. “I feel beautiful like that. It’s just another beautiful side of me.”

We never realized that Nokia identified as androgynous but it’s dope that PLAYBOY offered up a great platform to discuss. There’s so many people who identify as gender fluid or non-conforming and the world definitely needs to recognize that.

Another thing we liked about the Playboy issue was that it touched on Nokia’s identity as a santera, a priestess of Santería, as well as her difficult childhood and young adult life. For fans of Nokia’s music, the article also sheds some light on her new album which is currently untitled.

“In my new album I’m trying to embody how special my sign makes me and how unique it’s made my career,” she says. “I’ve been called lots of hurtful things based on who I am, on my spiritualism, on my astrological planning chart, on my duality.”

Nokia is resilient AF, that’s one thing that’s for sure.

Check out more images from the story below and you can get a copy of the Equality issue of PLAYBOY here.

Mo’ Money: Travis Scott Announces New Collaborative Album To End 2019

Travis Scott Announces New Collaborative Album “Jack Boys”

Travis Scott was one artist who definitely had a major 2019, to say the least. Coming off his highly successful 2018 which saw the release of his album “Astroworld”, Travis has been touring ever since the album hist streaming services. He headlined two legs of his on tour, curated two successful “Astroworld” festivals, headlined every Rolling Loud even catching a serious knee injury during the last stop. Aside from touring, he secured the coveted Netflix bag for his documentary “Look Mom I Can Fly”. Not leaving any coin on the table Travis also was able to release his own Reeses’ Puff limited edition box. Travis has shown his business acumen is A1 and he will not leave the coins for anyone else’s pockets. All while collecting his bags he’s fought rumors that he and his billionaire baby momma Kylie Jenner were falling out. While Kylie has been rumored to be getting cozy with Drake and rumored to have spent some time with Tyga, Travis went back to what he knows best, his work.

Travis Scott has officially announced one last project to close out 2019 with a bang, a compilation from his label Cactus Jack Record. The official title for the compilation is “Jack Boys” and will feature his signee’s such as Sheck Wes, Don Toliver, and his DJ, DJ Chase B. Travis is still playing by his own rules launching a line of merch that will come with his album on his official website TravisScott.com, a move that Nicki Minaj wasn’t too fond of when it put his “Astroworld” album above her album “Queen” back in 2018.

Hopefully, Travis’ compilation won’t block anyone else from hitting #1. If any artist was thinking of releasing in December it might be wise to wait. The first single for his labels project will be his recent release “Highest In The Room“. The track has had major success breaking Spotify’s single-day streaming record just last month. Safe to say Travis is setting up to hit the road again and luckily this time some new music will accompany the outing and his Cactus Jack Family will join him.
