"There is room for everything. Something that is quite common though, and I’ve noticed it even though things have changed a lot, is that there always seems to be room for a lot of male singers, and they don’t get asked to duel. You have Jay-Z and Kanye West being best mates. There’s always room for many male characters. “Yeah, still it’s like ‘Christina vs. Britney’. Why? I don’t want to be put in a position where I have to attack her. I thought it was really weird and unfair when M.I.A. and Joanna Newsom were asked about Gaga and then because they didn’t like her music, it was immediately big news online and they had to shoot each other down. It’s like the three new, most happening female pop girls, the same kind of age, and they had to shoot each other down! Guys are never asked to do that. It’s just ‘the more, the merrier’, you know?"
I thought I would post this brilliant quote because I recently saw Kate Bush live…after 35 years since her first & only tour. Everyone who knows Bjork knows she was/is inspired by Kate. In fact - she was there on opening night watching Kate just like I was. I cried (along with everyone else) as Kate performed. It was as if EVERYONE was rooting for her up there. Bjork supporting another woman as she attempts to return after 35 years. I just appreciate the fact that Bjork (and apparently Madonna was there as well) was there to support Kate as if she was just another big fan. I think we are all guilty of comparing women in the industry to one another - but just think of this quote before we delve into stan wars 24/7.(via fiftythreecrimes)
