“You will also notice of the big successful female artists, there is always a ‘man behind the woman’ piece… You never get that with men.”
“There is so much sexism, ageism, you name it. Kendrick Lamar sings about LSD, and he’s cool. I do it, and I’m a druggie whore.”
“If you’re a girl, you have to play the game. You’re allowed to be pretty and cute and sexy, but don’t act too smart.”
“When I am assertive, I’m a bitch. When a man is assertive, he’s a bossed up.”
“You’re going to have people who are going to say, ‘Oh, you know, like, she just writes songs about her ex-boyfriends.”
