St. Vincent is gracing the cover of the February 2017 issue of Guitar World, but she couldn’t make her debut cover with the magazine without trolling them a bit first.
“I did a quick Google search of women on the cover, and all I really saw was girls in bikinis holding guitars like they’ve never held a guitar before,” Vincent told Guitar World. “I started thinking about that and just wanted to make my own absurdist comment on it. I couldn’t really let it slide without poking a bit of fun and taking the piss a little!”
And that’s how Vincent -- real name Annie Clark -- came to appear on the cover wearing a souvenir-store T-shirt dress of a body in a bikini.
