Tinashe has one of those names like Beyoncé where you aren’t exactly sure how to pronounce it at first but before you know it, you’re saying it just as much as your own name. The girl can sing, the girl can dance, the girl can write and at the risk of shamelessly stating the obvious, she’s about as attractive as attractive gets.
We got the opportunity to shoot the triple threat and asked her a few quick fire questions to get to know the real Tinashe.
BYC: First off thanks for taking the time out to between shows and the road. What is your life like now that you spend so much time away from home and on stage?
Tinashe: My life has changed dramatically. I am constantly on the move performing shows and meeting new people… I can’t go places I used to go all the time without getting recognized… fans wait outside of my hotel for pictures… it is really incredible.
BYC: So once you’re back from Australia and London and everywhere else what are you going to do your first day back at home?
Tinashe: SLEEP!! ..and probably take a hike. I miss that LA sun and my dogs
BYC: I’m all in favor of family, food and then a necessary visit to a significant other. That’s my subtle way at nudging about the Future rumor. Any truth to that?
Tinashe: HA!! Absolutely not. I am single as can be! I haven’t seen, nor spoken to him since we recorded a song together a couple of years ago.
BYC: To the untrained eye, you’re a new artist but what people don’t realize is you’ve been in entertainment since you were a child, what was your first official job?
Tinashe: I was a baby model.. maybe sears or Kmart was my first print ad. I was in my first feature film when I was 5.
BYC: The Be You campaign is in firm belief that individuality is sacred. What about you do you feel makes you unique?
Tinashe: My tunnel vision work ethic is very hard to come by, I believe. I have had an unwavering faith in myself and my career for as long as I can remember.

All of the love in the world to her for taking the time out of her busy schedule to shoot with us and lend us a preview inside your hard working mind. Can’t wait to see she’s up to next.
