Sky Ferreira has pushed Playboy’s ‘no nudity’ policy to the limit with her cover shoot for the magazine’s October issue.
In doing so the music star has become a trailblazing Playboy Bunny, calling the shots on everything you see in the shoot.
“I am the first bunny ever to be a creative collaborator and creative/art direct. I produced and directed all of the content,” she wrote on an Instagram post promoting the mag.
Ferreira, who was shot by Sandy Kim, said no retouching was done on the photos, which have been described as a ‘visual introduction’ to her upcoming album Masochism.
In the double cover edition, Ferreira spoke to actor Bruce Dern about the ongoing problems with sexism in the music industry.
Hi. I am on the cover of Playboy (October 2016). I am the first bunny ever to be a creative collaborator & creative/art direct. I produced & directed all of the content. It is the first introduction to #Masochism (visually). My best friend @sandycandykim shot the photos & Bruce Dern did the interview. I will get much more into detail about the project & all of the people involved tomorrow when I unveil the covers! ❤️❤️❤️❤️🐰🐰🐰🐰 BTS (it isn't edited or retouched) PHOTO BY SANDY!
She explained: ”Even when I was 15 years old, going by myself to meetings with Sony or some other place, they’d be like, ‘Little girl, you don’t know what you’re talking about.’
“But they kept wanting to get my music from me,” she explains. “There’s this entire ‘shut up and be pretty’ mentality.”
Ferreira’s Masochism, her follow-up to 2013’s Night Time, My Time, still has no official release date, but don’t expect to be hearing it very soon.
