Her coconuts, you can put them on the cover of a magazine!

Kim Petras is the cover star of the Pride 2022 digital edition of V Magazine, where she talked about transitioning, who her idols are, and working on new music.

When asked what fans can expect from her new music, Petras told the publication:

“I don’t like to repeat myself. So yes, there are new themes. I like to evolve and I feel like right now I had a moment of change. Like the music that I listened to changed, the clothes that I wear changed and everything feels different. So yes, it’s a new chapter and I love a concept record – so it’s definitely that. That’s all I’m going to say.”

Petras broke the internet in 2021 with her single “Coconuts,” and then did it again in 2022 with her Slut Pop EP. During this interview with V Magazine, Petras looked back at what inspired the songs on Slut Pop:

“I love electro, club music. I feel like I was raised in gay clubs in Germany and techno and rave music has been my sh*t since I was a kid. All I wanted to be was a raver.”

She continued:

“For me, it became a lot about being transgender. Because for many of my friends and people that I’ve met, sex work was the only option to be able to transition. Had I not had parents that supported me, I would have probably gone the same route because you get kicked out if you’re not accepted, then you’re homeless.”

When it came to answering who her absolute icons are, Petras kept it short and sweet:

“RuPaul and Amanda Lepore.”
