As the world turns and the other members of Danity Kane continue to siphon gas from their neighbors’ cars to make it to their respective workplaces, Dawn Richard currently graces the digital issue cover of Stuff Fly People Like Magazine. The singer promoted the independent release of her ‘Goldenheart’ EP on Tuesday (January 15) at J&R Music World in New York City.
Here’s what she had to share with the magazine:
“I want the hearts to feel the message that we need to fight for that love and passion we used to have for ourselves and each other. I really am just trying to bring worlds together through music. I feel like now we’re in a time where we are very divided, angry, and we hate a lot. I think with my music what I am trying to do is build an army of people who fight for something together instead of against each other.”
“With that inspiration I wanted you to have the ‘Armor On’ to guard yourself and prepare for the battle. What goes on in the album is that we actually stand together and fight for one another on the front line and we’re not fighting against each other, we’re fighting with each other for the people who don’t believe that we’re beautiful enough, great enough, brown enough, or white enough. We do it in a way that isn’t preachy or corny.”
