Published Aug 18, 2015When Tinashe popped through Vancouver last weekend as part of Nicki Minaj's "The Pinkprint Tour," the R&B singer was welcomed with one of the most cherished West Coast traditions ever: an interview with Nardwuar. As he's done so many times before, the oddball journo managed to dig up a bunch of obscure facts about his subject and bestowed on her a treasure of pop culture artifacts. And, as always, it's highly entertaining.
So, what do we learn? Well, it turns out Tinashe has a lot of love for the Great White North, noting up front that "Canadians make some really dope music" when she's presented with a vinyl copy of an Emily Haines LP. Other Canucks currently killing the game include Tinashe collaborator Ryan Hemsworth.
We also figure out how Tinashe is tied to the history of UK dance-punks Test Icicles, learn that she's got her own parking spot at the Capitol Records building in L.A., and discover that she's narrowly avoided a few onstage costume malfunctions.
You can peep the pair's playful chat down below.
