Charli XCX Criticized The Double Standards In The Music Industry

British pop singer Charli XCX posted a recent tweet about women’s place in the music industry on her official Instagram page, and she criticized the double standards in the music industry between female and male artists.

Although Charli XCX is a successful female artist, she thinks that she doesn’t get enough respect in the music industry because she’s not a man.

Here’s what Charli XCX tweeted:

“I am an artist, a songwriter who’s co-written multiple ‘hits’ for myself/other artists, a video director, exec producer of a NetFlix show, a&r, I run a label, co-manage 2 artists.. if I was a man I’d be hailed as some sort of music industry god but as a woman I’m just – doubted??”

She also mentioned that female artists, in the music industry, are constantly questioned.

She continued:

“Btw I don’t need people to feel sorry for me or anything – I’m just saying it how it is. women in this industry are constantly questioned on their validity… ‘did she REALLY write that?’ ‘can she REALLY produce?’ ‘Does she REALLY know what she’s doing?’ I see it all the time.

Any and all-female pop stars in 2019 are obviously businesswomen: running their own careers, making their own decisions, directing their own teams, proving points, being groundbreaking and making their own art. like, this is SO OBVIOUS. don’t insult us.”
