Not your everyday classic Playboy mag expectation – Singer Tinashe stands out in her non-nude pose for Playboy magazine, starring as a first dark-haired model for the sultry magazine.
Oh and did we mention, she does not take her clothes off?
The 22-year-old “Player” singer stripped down to an off-the-shoulder crop top, ripped fishnet shorts (not sure how alluring fishnets are anymore, but hey), and a mane of wild waves as the “Becoming Attraction” of the November issue of Playboy.
Unlike some artists have done in the past, Tinashe opted to do a non-nude photo shoot, modeling a zippered sports bra and color blocked undies, track shorts and a down-to-there hoodie, and even a pair of camouflage briefs.
The singer-songwriter and dancer, who has already released two singles off her upcoming second album Joyride, is the first celebrity to appear in the famously nude magazine since the publication’s leaders announced it would no longer feature naked photographs on its pages starting in March 2016.
“Playboy will continue to publish sexy, seductive pictorials of the world’s most beautiful women, including its iconic Playmates, all shot by some of today’s most renowned photographers,” the publication said in a statement in early October.
The Kentucky-born artist maintains that she is not all about body and showing skin, saying,
Sexuality has always been part of who I am as an artist—emphasis on part…I’m an all-around entertainer, my own creative force, and I’m bringing something fresh to the table.”
Well we’re not so sure about the ‘something fresh‘ since it’s still Playboy – we get the seductive idea.
This of course isn’t the first time the talented beauty has graced the pages of a world-famous magazine.
You can spot her on the latest issue of Vogue magazine sharing a frame with another young modeling superstar, and a member of the Kardashian clan, Kendall Jenner.
