She also donned a crown that looked like it was fashioned after skeleton fingers at another point, while – quite literally – whipping her hair back and forth in the black and white shots at another.

Accompanying the shoot for was a Q&A with North, where she mused over her love of performing, basketball and being her own style icon – although she’s also keen to get into both her 43-year-old mum’s and 46-year-old dad’s wardrobes too.

While dropping one of her dad’s tracks as her favourite (naturally) with Through the Wire, she also revealed that she’s ready to work for her money when she’s a little older so she can buy her own art supplies.

It turns out, even when been of each other, you still have to work for what you want.

Answering the classic ‘what do you want to be when you’re older’ question, North shared that she wasn’t ruling too much out, other than her previous ambition to box.

‘A basketball player, a rapper, um… Well, when I was seven, I wanted to be a boxer. But now I don’t want to be a boxer,’ she told the publication.

‘I’m going to do art on the side. When I’m, like, thirteen, I want to walk dogs, to make money to buy art supplies, because everything around here is so expensive. So a rapper, a basketball player, and I’m going to make artwork that I sell.’

However, she also has her eye on two of the biggest brands founded by her parents.

‘Also, one day I want to own Yeezy and Skims, and I want to be a business owner,’ she added.

Meanwhile, Kanye’s upcoming concert in Italy was over ‘security and organisational’ problems.

’We had no option but to cancel the event,’ Local prefect Maria Rita Cocciufa told . ‘These things take a lot of organising, you have to have a health plan, traffic plan and some idea of how tickets are being sold and numbers.

‘You have to have all these things in place because you have to guarantee the safety and security of the people attending and as a city, we were ready but we just hadn’t heard anything from the organizers so for safety reasons it had to be cancelled.
