Travi$ Scott x Complex

Travi$ Scott is covering Complex for their December/January 2016 issue. Though the writer doesn’t get much time to sit with Scott (thus making for more of a story of his attempts to interview him, rather than an interview itself,) there are a few gems about Trav’s rumored relationship with his future tourmate, Rihanna.

For starters, one of the [many] times the writer was prevented from interviewing the subject was because he was holed up in his hotel room with Rih. Hmm! Then there’s the following excerpt from the interview:

And Rihanna. Travis avoids directly putting a label on his budding relationship, laughing and imploring me to not “do [me] like that, man” when I ask about it as delicately as possible. I am, however, able to get him to describe her in three words: “creative,” “inspiring,” and, after a long pause (and some assistance from Corey), “muse.”

Travis and RiRi first met at an Opening Ceremony fashion show before his second mixtape, 2014’s Days Before Rodeo, and have since worked together on “Bitch Better Have My Money,” which Travis co-wrote. More visibly, the two appear beside each other in a black-and-white photo for Rihanna’s upcoming Puma collection. The campaign drops right in the middle of our talk, and as Travis peruses the #travisscott hashtag on Instagram on his MacBook Air, he comes across a version of the ad with him cropped out and zoomed in on Rihanna. He’s not bothered by this, and in fact, he finds it funny. It’s then that he has arguably his most unguarded moment during the time we spend together, kissing his right index and middle finger and then touching the low-res image of Rihanna’s face, caressing the screen, and glowing with pride. It’s honest and touching and fucking adorable.

Interesting indeed! Read the whole story here.
