Whatever the case may have been, Tigerlily’s statement after all was said and done, is one to ponder on.
Although we’re well aware of the sexist challenges women face in the spotlight, it goes without saying that it occurs just as much behind the scenes, if not more.
In the case of Kesha, it goes to show that even being a household name in music such as herself, does not safeguard a woman from harassment and in this case, abuse to an extreme level.
The electronic music industry can be daunting for women.
Her quivering vocals in the emotional 1997 ballad My Heart Will Go On were the soundtrack to Titanic and have been played for decades since.
Just about every woman I know in the industry has experienced this sexist behavior to some degree.In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, female singer, songwriter and producer Grimes said, “I don’t think there are few female producers because women aren’t interested. It’s a pretty hostile environment.” When asked to comment in relation to pop star Kesha’s recent legal woes, Grimes shared that multiple male producers have also tried to blackmail her into having sex by claiming they won’t finish the track unless she goes back to their hotel room.The truth behind what Grimes shares is widely responsible for the disparity of female to male ratio of producers and DJs in the industry.She also showed off her chemistry with Steve as she danced up to the electro-house musician, before putting an arm around him.Celine later shared an Instagram of her wrapping her arms around Steve from behind, in a tongue-in-cheek nod to the iconic Titanic scene between Jack and Rose.
