“Ati executive oh. Ati hearing oh. It comes from all over the place. That’s why I fuck with any woman who is winning in this industry, because the obstacle is very expensive. Women can hardly get away with the kind of things that many men in the same industry get away with it regularly. “
She added that when a woman in the industry stands up for herself, she is called “difficult” …
She wrote: “For every woman who is making it, there are tons of women who have broken down. If you stand up for yourself,” she is difficult.”
She pointed out that female artists have to be better than average male artists to succeed in the industry and she has never seen a mediocre female artist do it.
Tbh some of the things I've experienced – specifically as a woman – in this industry. Lol. They will try to pit you against other women. Try to redefine ur value. Try to get in your head and remodel your self esteem. And I have even had it easier than many…
