If you’re not already accustomed with the Chicago songstress-poet, again accessible up whatever you use to accept to music, chase “Jamila Woods,” and comedy her 2017 admission anthology HEAVN as you apprehend the blow of this profile. Because to apprehend about Jamila’s affluent accent and active chat comedy is one thing, but to absolutely apprehend and feel those gifts? An absolutely altered story. No, not a story, a affidavit — a affidavit to us atramentous girls and our abnormal abbreviating (“Bubbles”) and our acclaim amateur and our can’t stop, won’t stop activism (“VRY BLK”) and our abolitionist airs (“Holy”) and our advocate backbone (“Blk Girl Soldier”) and our actual abracadabra (“Giovanni”). The accountable amount resonates, like accepting “the nod” from a sister stranger, and yet there’s abounding amplitude to clothier anniversary lyric’s intricate anecdotal to your own activity — to aloof breathe and be seen.
And so during our account that Sunday, Jamila sat actual still in the bedchamber of an aerial AirBnb apartment, advancing to circuit yet addition affectionate apple for her adherent admirers at AFROPUNK. A agglomeration of cosmetics chaotic the table to her larboard and afore her below celebrity architecture artisan Delina Medhin. The two had met on Instagram afterwards Delina responded to Jamila’s alarm for a woman or non-binary architecture artisan of color. “It’s so crazy how that can aloof assignment absolutely well,” Jamila told me. “Just putting it out there, what you need.”
But does the cosmos absolutely cabal in allowance us get what we want? I’m not sure, but if it were to coact with someone, I’ve no agnosticism it’d be this able 28-year-old who brindled quotable gems throughout our account with the aforementioned affluence that she sports a beauteous low cut and adventurous bare lids. Let me aback up though, to the moment Delina bald a clammy white area affectation from Jamila’s bland amber face, absolution up her aperture to move and our altercation on adorableness to begin.
What’s the attending for Afropunk today? Do we apperceive yet?
Jamila: Today we’re accomplishing like a pop of blush on the eyes…
Delina: The attending is activity to be actual basal with foundation. We’re not activity to put a lot of artefact on her skin. And because [she’s] activity to be so far abroad from [the cameras], and it’s activity to be such a big screen, I absolutely appetite to accomplish abiding she looks contoured. Not in a way area it’s a lot, but aloof so you can absolutely see analogue in her face. It’s added activity to be about the pop of blush on the eye. We accept some chicken that we’re activity to use all over the lid. I’m activity to bandage it with a cream, and again we’re gonna put on crumb to set it.Jamila: The blush chicken aloof consistently feels like a absolutely fun summer color. And it’s the absolute adverse to the atramentous covering and spandex actual I’ll be acid today. To mix chicken with that, it represents my personalities and incorporates that ambit in my music, from aerated sounds to added darker sounds.
Celebrity architecture artisan Delina Medhin brings to activity the that attending she and Jamila brainstormed beforehand via email and text.
You had mentioned that you were attractive for a specific affectionate of architecture artisan for Afropunk. Why is that?
Jamila: I aloof feel like back you’re accomplished at makeup, you should be able to assignment with all kinds of bark colors. But that’s aloof not the case. I aloof accept had absolutely bad experiences, decidedly accomplishing photoshoots and they’re like, “Oh we’ll accept a architecture person” and again it’s like a white actuality who doesn’t absolutely get my bark blush right. So I aloof like to accomplish abiding that I ability out to a actuality of color.
I was on Instagram aftermost night and your photo came up. It was the admission of your haircut! Could you allocution about the new look?
I’d been cerebration about acid my beard for a little bit. I’d see addition with abbreviate beard and be like, “Ooh, I appetite to do it.” But it had taken me years to get my afro as big as it was. It was my anecdotic factor, the affair I admired the most. I affectionate of relied on my beard a lot. But I aloof acquainted this apathy like, “No I charge to cut it now.” Acid it off was about like asking, “What abroad can I love? What abroad can be my admired thing?” So yeah, it feels nice. I didn’t apprehend how balmy my afro was befitting me though. I was like, “Oh, my arch is so cold!”
Area did you get it cut?
I go to this salon alleged Amazon Accustomed Attending Academy. It’s a accustomed beard academy and a salon. There’s this beautician there alleged Kojo. He’s absolutely cool. He acclimated to cut Common’s beard apparently.
I feel like beard has played a above role in a lot of your work…
Yeah, I’m absolutely aggressive by atramentous beard in general. It’s aloof a abundant allegory for so abounding things. For a while I’ve been autograph balladry that are all aggressive by atramentous hair, and I anticipate it aloof bleeds into my lyrics naturally. It aloof shows up, like in the song “Bubbles,” [which is about] this time I hadn’t absolutely been demography affliction of my beard and hadn’t combed it out in a absolutely continued time and so there was shrinkage. Back I assuredly combed it out it had developed like bifold the length, way best than I had expected. To me it was a allegory for how you can’t see your advance if you’re scrunching yourself and not absolutely attractive at yourself for about long. It was aloof a moment area I was like, “Oh I absolutely am authoritative progress. I absolutely am growing, I aloof haven’t been attractive at myself to see it.”
How do you accent your concrete actualization as an artisan and as a atramentous woman in the music industry?
Yeahhh…(Laughs) I anticipate a lot of times women, abnormally women of blush and women in positions of ability or visibility, feel this burden to aloof consistently be on and consistently be presenting a assertive way. That’s why I admired seeing Jessie Reyez bygone [at AFROPUNK Day 1], she was like, “I’m in a white T-shirt, I don’t affliction how my beard looks, y’all gon’ get this message.” I absolutely feel that.
I anticipate I had to, at some point, accomplish it an centralized process, and not burden myself to consistently attending acceptable abrogation the house. But I do adulation the action of acquirements how to accomplish my beard attending acceptable and how to booty affliction of it. Accomplishing a ablution and twist-out would booty me like two hours and that’s two hours of self-care time that I wouldn’t accept spent otherwise. So I affectionate of amusement it as a assurance that I am dedicating time to myself, as against to actuality like, “Oh, I’m activity to attending bad if I don’t do this.” Because there accept absolutely been times area I didn’t accept two hours and I had to aloof be like, “Okay, I’m gonna accept to aerosol some baptize and cull it a little bit.”
I bethink Princess Nokia was on bout and I was activity to her concert. She was like, “Oh, why don’t you appear out and we’ll sing Blink 182 together?” I was like, “I would accept done a twist-out if I knew I was gonna go on stage!” But I aloof concluded up aloof accomplishing that water-and-pull bearings and it was cool. I don’t like accepting to feel like I charge to do something. I claiming that activity back it comes up in me, because it does appear up a lot. I can alone do so abundant admitting because I additionally assignment at Young Chicago Authors, the non-profit area I grew up autograph poetry, and I am aloof consistently absolutely busy. So I’m aloof aggravating to not be to adamantine on myself or exhausted myself up over things.
Who are some of your appearance and adorableness icons?
I aloof saw the Betty Davis documentary, accept you? It’s adamantine to see. I don’t apperceive how abounding times it’s been screened, but I adulation her. I adulation Betty Davis. I bethink back I aboriginal abstruse about her — I was account the Miles Davis adventures — and aloof abstruse how her accord with him helped him advance and change his accomplished style. Then, I looked at a account of her and was aloof like, “Wow!” She’s the best admirable actuality I’ve anytime seen. Aloof a huge afro and her amazing anatomy suits.
The affair about her is she was authoritative music in the 70’s and afflicted so abounding bodies who are icons now. She afflicted Prince and I anticipate Madonna, every blazon of music. Aloof cerebration about Beyonce’s anatomy suit, I feel like Betty’s anatomy apparel were the forerunner to those. I aloof adulation that. Betty alleged herself an introvert, but again would accept this transformation on stage. Bodies would say, “Oh, you’re one Betty off date and you’re one Betty on stage.” And she’s like, “No, there’s one Betty and I aloof accept multitudes.” That’s absolutely alarming to me.
There’s no agnosticism that Chicago influences your sound. How does your hometown affect your faculty of appearance and beauty?
Chicago is amazing. There are a lot of genres of art in Chicago and a lot of bodies aloof accept affectionate of a DIY attitude appear things. There’s not absolutely an industry for appearance or for music, like we don’t accept a structure, so we’re aloof authoritative our own array of thing. It’s a lot of collaborative energy. So I adulation advertent what bounded designers are making.
My bandage is activity to be acid shirts by an artisan alleged Des. I adulation his assignment because it incorporates a lot of Chicago pride, but he additionally aloof went to Ghana area he’s from and did a accomplished bandage affectionate of bond the two styles of Chicago and Ghana. And he has a shirt that says, “Chicago Girls Do It Better.” I adulation it. I aloof absolutely like accepting aggressive by what I see bodies about me making. We try to abrasion a lot of Chicago designers all the time.
So who are some Chicago adorableness and appearance influencers and creators that you’re admiring appropriate now?
I adulation the Eugene Taylor brand. The designer’s name is Tesha [Renee] and her new bandage is unisex and aloof absolutely bright and unique. She fabricated me this custom allotment that I wore on bout a lot. She additionally does these absolutely air-conditioned array of underboob cut-out shirts with air-conditioned continued sleeves. Every time I abrasion it, bodies are like, “Where’d you get that from?” I absolutely like her and the way her apperception works.
I don’t accept actual continued nails, but there’s this attach artisan alleged Spifster, who I’ve consistently capital to assignment with. Her attach art is so cool, because she can booty inspiration. If I told her I absolutely adulation Betty Davis, she’d apparently actualize article that looked like her accouterments looks like on my nails. We accumulate missing anniversary other, but it’s activity to appear calm at the appropriate moment.
There’s this abundance alleged Koko Rokoko, and it’s affectionate of like a best store. They accept a lot of being that’s appealing affordable and they accept amazing denim.
There’s artist Chelsey Carter of Alex Carter. She’s accomplishing a alternation alleged Hues area she makes mini collections out of altered colors. She started with black, which I abrasion a lot of, so I’m absolutely aflame about the blow of the series.
Then there’s Fat Tiger Works, Jugrnaut, and Leaders 1354, which are array of like hip hop accessory shops. There’s a lot of businesses that are accomplishing absolutely able-bodied in Chicago, so I like to see what I can actualize on stage, like what’s the accomplished bandage wearing? Often I’ll get t-shirts or article from there to aloof accord [my show] a Chicago feeling. Like, “Chicago Til The Apple Blow Up” was on one [shirt]. Juggernaut had a shirt that says, “Chicago Everywhere”. Aloof a lot of Chicago pride is what I like to incorporate.
