Interview: SZA Covers Fader, Talks ‘CTRL,’ GRAMMYs and More

SZA covers the latest Earth Issue of The Fader for The Spring. Even through she was nominated for five GRAMMY Awards and didn’t win any, she talks with Kara Brown about her debut album CTRL being snubbed this year. Take a look at some of what she had to say below and ready the full story over at The Fader.

On Her Album CTRL:

“I just made a gang of songs over the course of four years. Heard ‘em all together and I was like, Huh, alright. I didn’t even fuck with my own album, so I was so confused and almost, like, angry that everyone fucked with it so much. It meant everything I felt about myself was wrong. And it was just like, If that’s not the truth, then what is the truth?”

On a New Album:

“You crazy, shit, if I could sit down and make one. No, no actually, 2018 just started. Definitely. Actually, I could do that shit in six months.’

On Her GRAMMY Snub:

SZA says she wasn’t let down by her experience at The Grammys because she didn’t place much stock in it to begin with, calling her live performance “random” and noting simply that the ceremony was “chill” and that she liked her dress. When I press, she offers: “I’m not as mad as I thought I would be.” When I ask how upset she thought she’d be, she doubles back: “I didn’t have any expectations, actually. That’s why I wasn’t super upset.”
