“Someone once said that I was signed to YBNL because I’m the girl everyone is fucking,
I was 19, Queer af and just excited to be in the closet.
Had to deal with answering stupid questions about men and my sexuality on live TV.
While my male counterparts were focusing on the music.
“The misogyny in the music industry breaks me!!
The fact that it’s normalized fucks with my head.
Next time you listen to the radio take note of how many Female artists have their songs played.
One day I’ll be talking my shit, Not today tho… Today we masturbate and drink wine.
“I still get referred to as “that girl they signed”
Let me tell you about the “one woman spot”, it is no privilege, your life is not an audition!
None of those men had/have nothing on me.
But we thank God for patriarchal privilege and bored people who are easily impressed,”
When a fan mentioned that record labels spend less time promoting their female artist.
The singer responded;
“I was signed for 5 years! 5 fucking years!!! Recorded back to back!
So yes, they’re misogynistic fucks.”
