The unhinged vixen behind South African rap-rave duo Die Antwoord is set to grace the cover of Dazed‘s Spring 2015 issue this month. Marking the singer’s first-ever solo interview, Visser talks motherhood, ongoing death threats from her native country, and her upcoming film debut in Neill Blomkamp’s sci-fi blockbuster Chappie. Tapping into the post-fame turmoil that has consumed her life over the last few years, Yo-landi states, “I roll with bodyguards when I go back home to South Africa. Like full-on. People want to f**king assassinate me.”

Also featured in the appropriately themed “Extreme” issue, shock rocker Marilyn Manson talks physical altercations and sexual fantasies, Icelandic songstress Björk breaks down the sorrow and heartbreak behind her critically acclaimed album Vulnicura and recently-retired, nonconformist French designer Jean Paul Gaultier indulges on an affinity for Mexican wrestling masks. The issue is set to hit stands on February 19.
